Great NY Times Article 11/18/11 - "Niche Voters Giving Paul Momentum in Iowa Polls"

"VINTON, Iowa — Steve and Cindy Anders belong to one of Iowa’s most politically savvy movements — Christian home-schoolers, whose organizing on behalf of Mike Huckabee in 2008 was one of the secrets behind his upset victory in the state’s Republican caucus.

This year, the Anderses are behind Representative Ron Paul of Texas, who supports drastically shrinking the federal government and closing the Education Department."

NYT, like FoxNews and all the

NYT, like FoxNews and all the others always has to put in that segment from an interview with typical ignorant doofus saying "he can't win." It's become tradition for the MSM. Their new strategy is to write positive pieces and then slip that in.


If he's so wrong on Iran, IT DOESN'T MATTER. The US isn't the only country on Earth with a military. There's Europe in their back yard. Israel doesn't even have to do anything. WHY DON'T SCARED AMERICANS THINK OF THAT? Think Europe will let them become dangerous when it's more likely they be the recipient of a nuclear missile than we ever would due to geography?

I think Akmajinidad works for the NWO.

Why all of a suuden would a country with no history of attacking other countries, who sends us legions of highly skilled workers -- become an aggressor?

Because it sells bullets and bombs for the bankers.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Niche voters?! How about

'Silent majority who are tired of the same old BS from Washington?!'
Hmmm...that might be too long...Well you know what they say no publicity is bad publicity, and the article wasn't THAT bad :)

Great article which exposes many opportunities

This part sums up so much opportunity for us:

“I don’t think I was his core type, the young college type,” said Mr. Walsh, 42, a volunteer firefighter and veteran of the Persian Gulf war. He voted for Mr. Romney in 2008 and was leaning toward him again this year, but he changed his mind because the federal government, he said, needs more drastic cuts than Mr. Romney proposes.

Mr. Walsh felt squeamish coming out as a Paul supporter. “The reaction is, ‘Oh, the guy is fringe, he’s crazy,’ “ he said. “People tell me, ‘You’re throwing away your vote.’ I said to myself: ‘Chuck, you wore the uniform, you fought for the right to vote. If you’re voting with your heart, I don’t think you’re throwing away your vote.’ “

This type of voter is the low hanging fruit for us. I can't tell you how many people I have met that just need to believe that he can win and then they would vote for him. I'm hearing less and less of that now though. The polls are rising and we are near the tipping point, maybe past it. The press has been getting better and better.

Fair Observation,

Positive thoughts, raises hope, to continue efforts in spreading the message of Liberty. Best wishes, RP 2012.

Bump for freedom...
