Media Blackout Equals FEAR From TPTB

Don't be discouraged by Ron Paul's narrow loss and the media censorship, be ENCOURAGED. It means they are terrified.

Here are the results in 2007:

Place Candidate Votes Percentage
1 Mitt Romney 4,516 31.6%
2 Mike Huckabee 2,587 18.1% (won Iowa Caucus)
3 Sam Brownback 2,192 15.3%
4 Tom Tancredo 1,961 13.7%
5 Ron Paul 1,305 9.1%
6 Tommy Thompson 1,039 7.3%
7 Fred Thompson 203 1.4%
8 Rudy Giuliani 183 1.3%
9 Duncan Hunter 174 1.2%
10 John McCain 101 0.7%
11 John H. Cox 41 0.3%
Total 14,302 100%

Back then they could legitimately make Ron Paul a fringe candidate but compare that to this:

9 Jon Huntsman 69 0.4%
10 Thaddeus McCotter 35 0.2%
— Scattering 162 1.0%
Total 16,892 100%

Now the media will say that the Ames poll is completely irrelevant because of how low McCain ranked in the previous poll. But here's why they are deep down terrified. Because the last Ames Poll in 2007 was an OUTLIER!

Look at the previous 3 Ames Polls where ALL THREE someone who was in the top 3 went on to win the Republican Nomination! ( And in fact it could be ALL FOUR. The Results for 1979 just aren't available)

    Again last 3 Republican nominations were all people who finished top 3 in Ames Poll.

Folks they are scared! TPTB are on defcon 5 in terms of propaganda mode. Don't let them fool you into thinking

1)Ames Poll is irrelevant
2)That this censorship is accidental
3)That we should be discrouaged by narrow loss

In fact this is the greatest sign of hope in the HISTORY of Ron Paul support. Despite how hopeful we are in 2008, look at the results of the poll in 2008 by comparison. Not even close.

Ron Paul is a FRONT RUNNER. The media is too terrified to admit it.

And wouldn't you be if you owned the trillions in fraudulent assets that the people who own the media owned in the bank holding companies, big oil, big pharmacy, etc?
