WE know, but do you know how to solve the global conspiracies that are really controlling our lives

Frothy losing the NO vote championship, he needs our help!

Right now Frothy is third in NO votes behind Erik Martin and Adele. He needs our help for a push over the top so he can win the nod for most NO votes. :-)

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Who is Erik Martin?

Who is Erik Martin? Oh please ...

He's the founder of Reddit,

He's the founder of Reddit, and Reddit (which has a record of 2 billion hits in a month) has a link to the poll on their home page...

waste very little to no time on this

it's meaningless

I'm on Reddit every day

its going to be hard to beat the guy that basically invented up and down voting..

Reddit is a damn good site because it works just like a true free market.. everyone gets a chance to vote on anything they want and all of the good stuff goes to the top..with few specific regulations.. anything that is not relevant to a topic and or a duplicate post gets trashed(spam also gets trashed).. like a free market .. copy write, fraud, and pollution laws and thats it..

ironically some people on reddit don't like Ron Paul because of his free market approach.

for those that are interested..
here is a link to Ron Pauls subreddit http://www.reddit.com/r/ronpaul/

also a like to the libertarian subreddit http://www.reddit.com/r/Libertarian/

Im on the dailypaul and r/ronpaul every day..
and I really think we should join forces.

Intensity not numbers

Proving the intensity of our small numbers, again.

F TIME, we want the white house!

who cares, redit can have the magazine cover we want the white house

and check out the percentages. ron paul is KILLING all other politicians and pop stars!

Erik Martin vs Ron Paul on

Erik Martin vs Ron Paul on "Yes" and "No"

YES

Erik Martin:117335

Ron Paul: 12667

NO

Erik Martin: 12667

Ron Paul: 5004

The "No" option really shows quite the difference.

i think you messes up erik

i think you messes up erik martin's no's or ron paul's yes's

Is it not curious, however.....

.... that RP has MORE than 400% the votes of Barack Obama and no other GOP presidential candidate is represented on the list?

Personally, if I were on the national campaign, I would press release that IMMEDIATELY!

All the other candidates are on the list

You just have to do one of two things to see them - scroll way down, or sort by "No".

Check this one out:

Rick Santorum

Yes - 703
No - 9927

Who on Earth are those 703? People who can't read, and just picked a box at random?

Don't sweat this! We voted Dr. Paul as the Man of the Year but

they gave it to Obama anyway. Time is NOT on our side.

~Your perception becomes your reality~

Please spread the word and

Please spread the word and share on your facebook/twitter to get people to vote for Ron Paul. This is huge media coverage for us!

Don't underestimate

The power of the Reddit Side.

They are a far larger and more powerful online group than even the Paulites.

competing against reddit?

it's arguably one of the most popular websites in the world.

yea

thats weird that it happened in a day. Though I did not look at his count yesterday only Pauls and Obama. I've been on Redditt a few times, is the majority of Redditt's readers ardently against Ron Paul?

Most people involved in

Most people involved in politics on Reddit are communist wannabes, but in this case, #1 on the list is the General Manager of Reddit. I think he was involved in the SOPA protests.

no

he has a subreddit with over 20,000 subscribers. r/libertarian has nearly 50,000 subscribers and he has a lot of support there. Then there would be people on r/bitcoin who would be supportive of him and probably many more. Four years ago when reddit was not as popular Ron Paul had huge support on the r/politics forum. It's how I first heard about him and all the bias and censorship which really got me interested. There were some criticism of course but by and large threads were positive.

Today though reddit is so popular that groups try and engineer reddit and there is a concerted effort by some to label things that get posted about Paul on the main default subreddits as spam. They try to persuade people that Ron Paul support is a new Phenomenon on reddit and that his supporters are trying to game reddit this election season. Truth is Ron Paul has always had support on reddit. Many of the issues he discusses are popular topics like the drug war, illegal wars etc etc. They come up every day. There are also allegations that some mods are trying to engineer reddit with their own bias. There are quite a few examples of inconsistent moderation.

The reason the GM of reddit is top of that poll is because a founder of reddit came onto r/technology and asked its subscribers to vote for him. The post got upvoted a lot:
http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/rji7v/time_is_lo...

You can see in the 'other discussions' tab that it got posted to 9 other subreddits too.

The threads asking people to vote for ron paul did well too, though it did best in r/ronpaul with 600 points:
http://www.reddit.com/r/ronpaul/comments/rja0c/the_2012_time...

You can be sure that the reddit admins really want to win this because they want exposure so expect more threads rallying for their GM if he starts to lose.

He probably ran the story on his website

and since tons of people like the site, they just probably picked him.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

I agree..

but it happened in less than a day.

As i mentioned in another

As i mentioned in another post Reddit has a record of over 2 billion hits in a month. The GM would have no trouble getting 100k in a day. But hey, it's a list of Top 100 not man of the year so #2 on the list is pretty darn good. Chin up.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.
