Business Insider: Ron Paul's Loyal Supporters Are Getting Ready To Shock The World In Iowa

"Ron Paul's supporters in Iowa are very loyal and very excited. And they are poised to make Paul the winner of the Iowa Caucuses next month.

This isn't the script the media has been writing for this campaign. Instead, "Tea Party Queen" Michelle Bachman, who beat Paul by just a few score votes at the Ames Straw poll earlier this year, was supposed to win this state - and confirm that the GOP has gone bonkers.

by poster. I mis-read the opening.

I would arugue that....

This is the single most threat to the status quo that has been seen in a very long time. They know Ron will stick to his word.

When this much money and power is at stake, the sky is the limit... They will do anything to hold onto power and their nice little farce they have created on our backs.

You can look back through history and see how some of the greatest countries have fallen or the leadership has been run out of town....when the people have had enough! (have we had enough yet?) I have! Just looking at the news every day we see so many examples of how we are being shammed and no one does anything about it!

You can also find lots of examples of greed and manipulation by Government leaders when there comfortable way of life is threatened, I would consider Americans a bit more advanced, however human nature is human nature.

We need to be prepared to fight the establishment with knowledge, Liberty and Law, although most of the law is in their favor. The Law will cost $$$$. We need 12-16 money bomb to be the single most greatest accumulation of $$$$ in history. I will guarantee if that happens it will wake up many others. I see a change in the tide this time around and I'm prepared to send in every last cent to help us get to the top, we cannot let our guard down. People will do anything when their back is to the wall including Politicians

Another poll out there...

Man! The comments on this

Man! The comments on this article are incredible!

I feel something electric going on in this nation.


If everyone has a 'niche', that's where I prefer to lurk and engage in debates.. most often quite productively!

Supporter comments are a great educational tool

Over the years, I have learned almost as much from supporter comments on articles as I have listening to hours of Ron on youtube and reading his books. So I try to pay it forward with good comments too.

And that was a great comment in itself.

"Pay it forward" is an interesting way to look at it.

I've learned a ton from what regular people have to say- really there is no distinction between an autodidact and a trained journalist, except that the journalist is more constrained. Since the freedom of a society depends on the freedom of the press, it's crucial that we use the internet to maximum advantage while we still have it. Every bit of clarity and sound argumentation counts for something.


I just got lost reading them for a half hour. Good stuff.

This time, Dr Paul had better be ready with attorney's,

because they could try to rig the way the votes are tabulated, rememnber what they did in Lousianna in '08???
They created some kind of 'pro life' slate or some BS, combined them and added them to McShame, when RP was the clear winner. He should have Edwin Veira on retainer, and ready to challenge some kind of scam. This is do or die, and playing the PC, Mr Nice Guy game, NO LONGER APPLYS!!!
I doubt they will try something in the first primary, but you can bet you azz, the establishment RNC will have a plan for NH, so Paul can't gain momentum.

that crooked crap

... aint gonna work this time. Nevada, Louisiana, New Hampshire, Florida ...


What an excellent article.

What an excellent article. And how awesome to actually be a part of this!

RNC, say hello to your nominee.

must show up

Our people MUST show up to caucus, and take friends and family. We MUST get our supporters to the next levels.


and we all must treat our precinct conventions like a straw poll and show up. Here in Texas, anyone can attend, if they voted in the primary. It's not too hard to be sent to the district convention,either. Then comes the state convention, but if we have lots of Paulites there, you can go on to the state level. That's why we have to turn out the participation in the two lower levels. The tough part is that we have to also know how to keep from being steam-rolled once we get to the state convention and encounter organized dirty tricks to keep Ron down. The Texas convention was a sad example. I hope we'll all be trained and ready this time. Don't be intimidated. There's lots of help available for first-timers.

Quote to put on your mantle

"This is no longer a political novelty act. It's not a seminar on the Constitution disguised as a campaign. This is the emergence of a populist-libertarian force that is growing into an organized movement in American politics."

"It does not take a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

--Samuel Adams

Hear! Hear!

I loved that one, myself.

...right next to the photo

...right next to the photo from the upcoming inauguration of President Paul in 2013, wherein I'll be weeping like a baby.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

BOOM!!! BOOM!!! BOOM!!! Fireworks!!!

What a week it has been, starting roughly with Cain's suspension... That is when Ron Paul arrived as a serious force in the eyes of the MSM, finally.

"Know what you know, know what you don't know, and understand and appreciate the distinction."






we can do this thing



I just hope we get the win. I

I just hope we get the win. I have rarely cared about what MSM says about it. Every vote for Ron in Iowa means 2 or 3 more over the coming months, added to our ranks. This is not a joke, nor a game. We need Ron as our President.

showing up

It happens if people show up to caucus. We MUST get the people to caucus.

Take your children or get a baby sitter. Take a vacation day. This is once every four years, so get to caucus!

Once in a lifetime!

We may never have a chance to vote for Ron Paul again!

Last chance...

This will definitely be our last try at getting Ron nominated. It may be the last try at freedom over fascism for many decades to come.

Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy

for a glimpse

... of what it may look like in a few years if we don't win this thing:


"A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers.

Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans' body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix."

{ substitute neo-cons for machines ... }

Lot's of time for old Newt to stumble

Newt represents regurgitated Washington D.C. swill. With his heavy load of political and personal baggage, I can't imagine anyone actually identifying him as a trustworthy person. I think the more that Iowans get to know Newt, the artificial support will start to wane quickly. Just by jumping everytime Trump says "jump" ought to be enough for people to disengage from Newt.

Should we consider the framing of the Iowa vote by the MSM?

My concern is that They are either framing it as a Major Upset or it doesn't really matter. The MSM and the establishment are going to try and take the wind out of the sails and I want to know how we are planing to deal with that reality. They will not roll over and play nice.

They will try...

If Newt wins it'll be an upset and the most important thing every, "Obama came from behind with an Iowa victory..."

If Paul wins it'll be meaningless, "Huckabee won Iowa and it meant nothing..."

But, they forget, that we don't listen to the MSM.

If Paul wins Iowa his supporters will get a huge boost!

If Paul gets 2nd in Iowa his supporters will start hitting the streets even harder!

If Paul gets 3rd in Iowa his supporters will know it is now or never!

No matter what, we win. Keep the momentum, keep building, and let's win this thing!

Jack Wagner

find examples

where candidates winning Iowa, got the nomination and even got the Presidency. We should be ready with those examples and in fact RP should be ready with those too, because MSM will be singing about Huckabee and other cases like him, if RP wins Iowa.
