Huff Post - I Voted for Obama, Now I'm Voting for Ron Paul

Great article! I imagine we will find more and more of these types of articles being written.

by Anthony Anderson
I truly believe that I speak for so many young progressives that would be proponents for peace, clean food and water, and a government that actually helps and cares for its citizens.

After 8 years of GWB and the lies about WMDs, 9-11, Monsanto, Iraq...etc...anyone coming from the other party looked like a better choice. I was somehow still under the illusion that the Democratic Party would work for the people and not corporate/banking/defense industry interests.

I cried when Obama won. I really thought it was a new dawn for the US and the world as a whole. I was so ashamed of the Bush administration... all the violence and greed just made me ashamed to be from the US. Somehow though I still thought that there was a difference between the two parties.

i like seeing RP get more attention at huffpo. it would be much better if he was on the front page, instead of perry or bachman....RP gets buried in the blogs and 2nd read pages....but i'm glad to see it, nonetheless.


i've made many, written well supported dissertations, prophet rhymes...but i like a recent one at anthony's article for its flow..

"first, understand what money is and who has the right to coin it, then understand who has the right to keep it.

then you might understand that all of those programs you are so attached to, have been created with your money to benefit those who have already stolen from you."

so much comment censorship

so much comment censorship over there; typical pro-government thought repression by people who supposedly believe in free speech. lol

We are finding that "Blue Republican cards" and

"No more TAXES on TIPS" business-size cards are eagerly received in Northwest blue states. Pro-PEACE and pro-civil liberties sentiments are quite strong here.

"Blue Republicans voting for Ron Paul" cards

Third Pro-Paul article in a week on HuffPost

Does anyone know how centralized or controlled their editing process is? I'm wondering if this is a formal editorial decision or is it more bubbling up from the indy writer base.

Currently consuming: Morehouse's "Better off free", FDR; Wii U; NEP Football

They also added the amazing

They also added the amazing libertarian write Radley Balko so maybe someone over there is more open minded.

Have you guys sat and read the comments on the article?

Damn near cried .. there is a HUGE wave coming this way people. It's riddled with previous Obama supporters and neo-con converts who are waking up one at a time ... this is powerful stuff.

There are a few of us

who voted for Obama because he promised the kind of change that Ron Paul is promising. Difference is, Ron Paul would deliver on those promises to the best of his ability. Disillusioned, many are.

Students and young people came out in droves to support Obama...imagine the power if we engaged those groups and showed them the truth. New voters turning 18 every day! They are both more politically aware and less politically involved than the same demographic 4 years ago--perhaps because they saw what Obama promised to do and then failed to deliver. Imagine the force they could have if they really got involved!!

HuffPost are just trying to save their asses.

Whereas all the other media are going for the suicide option by bashing and ignoring Ron Paul, who will be the next president of the US, HuffPost are clever enough to know that if you don't support Ron Paul you will end up loosing.

This 1 is 4 you, RP.

I want to punch the GOP in the face really hard. We need Democrats and Independents to help do this.

I am highly

suspect of Huff for allowing this article to reach print.
The fact that Huff allowed an article calling out Fluoridation and Monsanto is highly suspect.

Maybe they are coming around, but I think it more likely they allowing them to pass as evidence to paint supporters as conspiracy theorists.

Hope I am wrong.

Would be great for more people to start rallying against fluoridation and Monsanto, two of our largest problems.

A similar story...

10-12 years ago they called us all conspiracy nuts for pointing out that Silver Fillings were 50% mercury.

The dentists learned they were harming their own health by using them.

The market demanded something better.

Now 10-12 years later the majority opt for ceramic/polymer fillings & nobody is calling us conspiracy nuts for pointing out the toxicity.

You're right,

Great article!
Spreading around =D

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

Every day we I am seeing more

Every day we I am seeing more and more articles on the HuffPo about Ron Paul. Good articles too.

I hope they remember to

I hope they remember to register Republican..we need them in the Primaries, and the more, the merrier!!

Be sure to give the author some

positive feedback.

Two pieces in HuffPo drumming for RP

What's next? Santa will fight the evil Martians with assistance from his pal, Easter Bunny?

No. Ron Paul just makes sense.

Good piece

Short, succinct, and should hit home with a few more "progressives".
