It might be too late...

But please break the link.

We don't need these people to know that:

-the Daily Paul has any pull on this
-their poll is being skewed by the DP

Overall, we need to shield the DP from any electronic paper trails and break future links to all polls so that the poll holders can't trace the votes back to DP users.

Make sense guys? Please, break the link.

Although anyone has the right to vote in it anyway

I did break the link for the reason that there is no reason to skew a straight up poll that he already has basically won, or inadvertently make it "appear" as if it were skewed by one particular site. But also there is nothing wrong with informing people about a poll they can vote in.

Skewing it further even if unintentional is not what should be done, it will only discredit the most important honest poll that he actually won.

I should think nobody here is attempting to pile in on it. There is no point in that. He already won by a long shot, and honestly at that.

It's now 92.3%

and will climb more I betcha!

Ron Paul is My President

Another one for the books.

Another one for the books. Count it!

I love how the only Democrat

I love how the only Democrat in like the top 50 in approval is Dennis Kucinich. Democrats aren't too popular with their constituents apparently. Either that or most Democratic voters can't be bothered to actually spend some time participating in government and researching/commenting on their masters. Sad.

Democrats don't earn votes.

Democrats don't earn votes. They use the lie that they're "for" the poor and get easy votes.

That is pretty cool

Worth sharing this link - looks like a good resource.

Yea, Ron!!


Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Ok, here's a fun idea, I wonder if it would work

and I'm just thinking out loud here, but say each rep gets a hundred votes. 43,500 votes for all of congress. But the amount of votes they can use is directly related to their approval rating:

11% approval rating = 11 votes
92% approval rating = 92 votes

Set up a simple system where we can vote on their approval rating once a month and there we go. We could finally put some reins on an out of control congress, as well as reward those who are serving the people. Sort of a hybrid of a democratic/republic. If their constituents don't like what their representative is doing they can in effect "defang" them. They wouldn't have to wait 2 to 6 years for the next election, they could actually hold their reps feet to the fire while in office! Try going back on campaign promises now! HA!
Near 75% of americans were against the bailouts but their reps wanted to go forward with it anyway. Imagine the people drop their reps approval rating down to 0 or some low number, and leave them powerless to proceed while those reps against the bailouts with higher approval ratings and thus more votes can then stop them from passing. That would be awesome!

If not aproval rating maybe it should be done on a bill by bill basis as indicated by constiuent response. Where you write in to your congressman or log your preference online how they should vote. A rep could go ahead and vote for or against legislation contrary to their constituency, but without their support, that vote would be near powerless. This would serve well in areas that are pretty evenly split but are run over rough shod by the 51% majority. They would finally get a say in things!

Imagine writing your congress critter actually having an effect!

I'll kick the idea around a little more, I'm sure there's probably tons of things wrong with it, but it's intriguing none the less. Would a system like this work? What would prevent it from working? Any thoughts? (by all means shoot it down if anyone thinks of something)
I wonder if could be tested out in some way?

I saw that too. Why does she get the power seat? Why can't they give it to the rep everybody approves of?

Dr.Paul needs to WIN the fight to end the war in

Afghanistan & audit the FED.

He can start winning with a more seasoned & effective staff that works the other members of Congress.







brings me back to the days that we put ron paul at the top of every list, poll, and website! I love still helping out with that and can't wait to see it go into full force again

Bad News for Democrats in CA

Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein have low-20 % approval ratings, and vote 95% with their party. I imagine this probably means that the voters on this site skew toward disapproval.

Otherwise, it would appear that Californians don't like incumbent Democrat positions.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Love Pelosi with her 11%

Love Pelosi with her 11% approval rating..

I'm still hoping she decides to

get another face lift,This time her eyes will pop out,It is pretty hard to read a teleprompter with your eyes hanging down past your lip.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I think is was Joan Rivers who said:

"If she gets another face-life, she'll have a goatee." She wasn't talking about Pelosi, but if the goatee fits...

Another reason each district

Another reason each district should listen to the rest of the country before they vote. 11% approval rating should mean at least 89% vote her out!
