I find it interesting that the Google trends had stopped updating the images since about time Santorum dropped out. It'd be nice to get a fair account of the same as it stands now. Sort of a disservice in my opinion much like the other news sites that have given blackout.

Why down vote someone just

Why down vote someone just because they're trying to tell the truth? Isn't honesty a central thesis of our campaign? Yesterday was a disappointment for everyone, no matter how many times you say "we're winning" or cry foul about voting fraud, and we should march forward with optimism, but to ignore the facts makes us no better than the politicians and the system we're trying to fight.

INSPITE OF BLACKOUT, RON PAUL DID WELL.

The horrific, prejudiced,controlling, micro-managing, unfair media , has blacked-out Ron Paul. All they talk about is, Romney, Romney, Romney. So Ron Paul did exceptionally well yesterday in the 5 states voting , inspite of the spiteful media blackout. Imagine how well he would have done if more people realized he was still running !

Here's the best use of our

Here's the best use of our time I can come up with: get some Ron Paul liturature and people into LA, TX, CA , etc NURSING HOMES. Where else can you capture the attention of hundreds of people who will actually vote, (cause they get free rides) and also be talking to people who would welcome your company. They are just as revolutionary as us. They know things are fucked up. Get them the information they need to make informed choices. I may just head to Cali today, anybody want to pledge some liturature?

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for the ruling tyrants and their shitbag minions to be strung up...

Get the dimentia people out to vote! drive them there yourself, they love attention, company....and something to do!

Get on it...hit the nursing homes! go visit, get them stoked, then load them up and take them to vote :)

* that doesn't require ammunition

Bullets and ballots may be required afterall, who knows?

I don't think the majority of

I don't think the majority of old folks are receptive to Ron's ideas or would be with your encouragement. What really needs/needed to happen was registering Republican and actually voting, I'm sick of these people who "support" Ron but don't show it with their wallets or time.

Just a couple ideas:

1. NEVER give up or let the bastards grind you down, freedom will ALWAYS win, make sure you are there when it does! We are gonna have a good time stretching those necks!!

2. Don't waste effort or mental energy. Do today those things that make the most impact. In states where it matters. Door to door sounds good but I can call 400 people before you get off your block. Not a complaint or criticism, just opinion. But don't forget: we must always be DOING SOMETHING!!!!

3. Has nobody noticed how much Romney sounds like "Zombie" ? There are way too many cult fans out there to not be seeing some good graphics here!!!

4. We ARE winning, have NO doubt!

5. I'm without computer right now but how about a website that we can pledge to vote for no other candidate but "honest Ron" so the sheer numbers of our rEVOLution can be counted? I think it would go like wild fire. If done right, verifiable, and auditable, could it not possibly outmaneuver the voting machines? It would be easier to get people to make an online pledge than to physically jump through estBlishment hoops and "vote" How about an online "VOTING" revolution? Just a thought.

Anyone know why its still

Anyone know why its still stuck at 77% reporting in New York? Whats going on?

The Voting machine forgot to rig the rest; Repairs needed !

Probably the election voting machines failed in continuing rigging the vote for Romney and got jammed. So they have to go in and make repairs to make sure it shows Romney as winning overwhelmingly. Have no fear-the Romney cheating team is here.

the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

Don't forget Ronald Reagan was the outsider who they said

could not win the nomination! I don't believe he won a state until North Carolina. Guys we really won Maine and the Virgin Islands. We have won a Victory in Minnesota and we plan on getting the rest of the delegates and it sounds like we should win a good percentage of the delegates for a win in Iowa.

Folks, try to become a delegate and check out becoming delegates in the States that just held their primaries like NY,etc. I believe they don't elect delegates until next month in a caucus format.

Please help the campaign by making calls from home to win LA. their caucus is coming up! People think LA is over with but the caucus is where they determine the delegates. Make calls to existing RP supporters to show up on their caucus date to vote.

One vote can make a difference as happen in MInnesota.

Keep fighting.

Dear fellow RP supporters,

Don't believe everything you read:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Party_presidential_p...

^^ Reagan won 44 States in the 1980 primary.

Sticking our head, as my mother calls it, "Ostrich Syndrome" - into the ground and shouting "WE ARE WINNING!" is not going to... well, help us win.

No more BS from the butt. Go phone bank.

speaking of believing everything you read....

Reagan and Ford both met at the bohemian club prior to the election process and more than likely the outcome was decided there, then carried out as a reality show in the media.

yeah, but Ronald Reagan lost

In the year when Ronald Reagan didn't win a primary until North Carolina, he lost the nomination. It also turns out that North Carolina was the 7th state to vote that year, and that Reagan won more than 1/3 of the primaries.

Also, most of the states that just voted don't have caucuses/conventions to choose delegates. The delegates are chosen by the campaigns and state committees. In NY and CT, for sure, 100% of the delegates will be chosen by the Romney campaign. In RI, it appears that the campaigns choose them as well. In PA, the delegates have already been chosen so there's no way to become one anymore. DE is apparently the only state (of those 5) where they are going to hold a convention to decide who the delegates will be.

It appears that the Paul campaign will get 4 delegates in RI and 5 in PA. Outside of a small outside shot in DE, there's not any possibility of becoming a "stealth" Romney delegate.

Why don't you just put the

Why don't you just put the money where your mouth is and take your family to the FEMA camp right now. You coud spare some transportation costs to your Robamney bosses.

The Crux - How to fight it

I don't have a professional opinion on the rigged voting, but I do have common sense. Look at the facts; reality is staring right back at you. This is the crux. All of the work we do is naught without exposing & cleaning out this root of gangrene. My question is ... how can a small # of people, disjointed all over the country, who recognize this rotting bottleneck, do something about it?

Mitt Romney won every county in NY ?

There is just no way people voted for Romney in the rural counties in upstate and western NY....no freaking way

I am in Albany County and I have never seen 1 mitt romney sign anywhere at any time

and he beat Ron here 3 to 1 ??

I don't know anyone who likes Romney - who are these people voting for him. Id like to see them in person.

I dont want to believe in voting fraud. But Im getting more and more close to buying in on the idea

I am with you

I live in upstate new york. Last week I attended the rally in Ithaca where ~4500 people showed up to hear Ron Paul speak. I met people who drove there from Buffalo, Utica, Syracuse, and Rochester. How is it that Ron Paul draws thousands at every speaking event, no one cares enough to show up at Romney events, yet in a low turnout primary, 70+% of all the voters are for Romney? Where are these Romney supporters? I haven't seen them.

Nursing Homes!

See my comments re: "In Retrospect".
Hijacked senior/captive audience/forgotten people's votes.
Question: How many Nursing Homes are in your District?
There's the answer.

Pennsylvania- Santorum?

I can't believe my eyes!

RP got 2nd in Philadelphia!

It looks like all the hicks and rednecks, I'm sorry...I mean...uh, NASCAR fans, no, that's too powerful, uh....tattoo types...I'll probably get censored by the "moderators"...let's see...mental class....I mean "middle class" ruralites voted for Santorum?!

I'm going blind!!!! DUMMIES!!!!!

Anybody have a delegate count for Ron Paul in PA?

Santorum Endorsed Romney - Did not Call it an Endorsement

At the Philly Ron Paul Rally in the Rain, there were Santorum supporters giving out literature. They were saying that Santorum is the ONLY viable anti-Romney candidate and he would get back into the race if he has a good showing in PA. I wonder what they are saying now that Santorum said that Romney is the guy to beat Obama?

Love This Exerpt From The Daily Beast...

But, in Rhode Island’s proportional race and Pennsylvania’s loophole primary, Ron Paul managed to slip in and grab delegates...

In fact, Dr. Paul is expected to finish second in the overall delegate haul for the night despite investing almost no effort in the states contested...hehehehe...Here's more..

Paul is focusing on accumulating delegates slowly but surely. As Rick Santorum noted in his CNN interview with Piers Morgan, “Ron Paul is working the delegates really hard. I can tell you that."

In fact, Dr. Paul’s strategy to work the convoluted process in caucus states has him in the catbird’s seat in states Santorum won on caucus night, like Iowa and Minnesota.

four delegates in RI

that's what cnn shows; how do we find out how many he got in PA?

he got 5 in PA

At least, of the names that were published by the Paul campaign for his supporters to vote for, 5 were elected yesterday and will be delegates in Tampa.

On the other hand, there are a number of delegates elected yesterday (30ish) who have not declared which candidate they will support. Many are party leaders and prominent individuals who one would consider part of the "establishment". Some have stated that they would support whoever won the primary. Some will surely just vote for whoever they see in the lead at the convention. It's still technically possible to convince these individuals to shift their support toward Ron Paul. Chances of that happening may not be huge. He did pick up at least 5 delegates there, though, giving him 9 on the day.

Plan B = Independent run. NO "3rd" Party

Stay away from parties.

They all come with a baggage of platform which many independent-minded voters will reject.

As soon as the final primary is held, if Romney has all delegates needed and no brokered convention seems possible, I pray Dr. Paul will run as an INDEPENDENT.

No party affiliation needed. It will be too late by then anyway as nost other parties will have their nominees.

The campaign should be planning for this now.

Since he's not running for congress as a republican anymore, he has absolutely nothing to lose.

This republican party and media has treated Ron Paul (and us) like crap and it's time to plan our revenge.

We'll serve it up cold with an Independent run.

And while we won't win in November, NEITHER WILL THEY.

I will NEVER give bastards like Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Michael Medved, Bill O'Reilly, John Gibson, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Dick Morris and the like the satisfaction of my VOTE for Romney.

Together, these vermin have done irreparable damage to Ron Paul and his (and our efforts).

The money, time and energy we have spent to try to save this country has been successfully neutralized by these rats.

-Ron Paul

you betcha!

The GOP and their media whores have conspired to break Ron Paul, and they're succeeding. Paul's campaign team came to a gunfight with a knife, totally unprepared for the task. They learned nothing in '08, except maybe their "delegate strategy". Well folks, the GOP can, and will, change any nomination rule they want, whenever they want. If the White House is the real goal, it's time to re-boot. You might say, it's now or never. Ron Paul has raised $35 million thus far, all the while, fighting losing battles in all the GOP run caucuses. Suppose he did bolt, and declare independent, re-tool his staff to bring on some notable people of his character, ratchet up the rhetoric on the cronnyism of the 2 party/media system, produce documentation of fraud and go for a big money push? His name is out there now. People are paying a little attention. What if he had the $35 million to take his case straight to the people, and really SPIT in the face of the GOP? That's what they did to him! Forget Rand. He'll be just another "go along to get along" Senator in the system. Ron Paul is the real deal. It would almost be national tragedy to not give it every possible effort......and if the staff wasn't going to be prepared to fight the GOP/Media, which was certain, they should've considered an independent run from the beginning. The hour is getting late.
