Win, Lose or Draw ...

... our efforts are not fruitless. To underscore the well stated points set forth in the comments above, it bears repeating that each day we may smile upon the happy, and seemingly unhappy, events of each primary occurrence:


Daily we stand at the precipice of success. ;-)

Don't give up!

Ron Paul got 3rd place in West Virginia with two candidates running! At this rate, we'll have the nomination in no time!

So we lost terribly

in the popular vote. that really sucks. screw the MSM.

any word on how good we are with delegates right now in these states?

I really wish we could have another debate.

Media propaganda is how Hitler came to power

And it's what keeps our corrupt government in power too.

Democracy is incompatible with liberty because democracy is too easy to manipulate.

Actually Democracy is a Tyranny

of the majority, of the collective. Hitler propaganda was not something out of ordinary we do not see today. He was able to unify two different groups into one. Todays example:

1) Group #1: those Ron Paul supporters (who came to the movement not only for the purpose of individual liberty, but also out of a desire to curb Jews and Israel) who blame everything on Zionists, from Marx to NWO.

2) Group #2: Occupy Wall Street with focus on 1% rich.

Both like to arouse their collective (aka mob) by mentioning Goldman Sachs - the only big company that was NOT bailed out. GS does not donate to campaigns, its employees donate, because they want to keep their job as much as trade union members do. Same with Rothschilds without understanding that each private member bank has only 1 vote in the FED's branch bank regardless of shares it owns.

If Ron Paul's Austrian School of economics was not pillared by Jews, one may unite the 1) and 2) groups into a simple message: "Jews want to destroy us via communism or free-market capitalism (by removing all regulations from greedy capitalists and giving them a free hand to exploit innocent workers.) Hitler was able to do just that.

Nit: Ford is the big one that wasn't bailed out.

Nit: Ford is the big one that wasn't bailed out.

Unlike GM and Chrysler (which were essentially nationalized as they were about to fail), Ford had turned around a couple decades ago and is still doing fine by producing a quality product at an affordable price.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Goldman Sachs was bailed out

In 2008 and 2009 Goldman Sachs received billions of dollars in taxpayer money to help it stay afloat. So I'm not sure where you're getting your information from.

And Goldman Sachs does donate to PACs. Further, whether money comes directly from a company or through the employees, the source is still the same, the company they work for.

I definitely agree that democracy is tyranny of the majority. But, I'm not quite sure what you're getting at with your other comments, which are confusing.

Perfect ...

Anyone know where to find

Anyone know where to find full results of the delegate selection in Indiana? Hearing that we are doing pretty good there. might take the majority to State!!!

To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!

I checked my local results

for Hamilton County, IN. I won Precinct committeeman (Delaware 21) but I don't see my name anywhere for delegate to go to state convention:


I wonder if, because my precinct was small, I'm pulling double duty(?). I'll be looking into it.

Just a quick follow up

I asked a more experienced person about my situation. Not only am I a PC but apparently I was unopposed as delegate so I am both heading to the state convention June 8th and 9th. Looking forward to being involved with both duties. To my fellow RP supporters - See you at State!

I'm a bit confused.

What all was voted on today? Were there some that were voted on as final national delegates or were all of them or were some voted as national delegates and some just for state?
Some clarification and some information on the final results would be great.

West Virginia was direct

West Virginia was direct election of delegates
Indiana is convention but the district delegates were voted for today

We will find out soon enough! Hang in there the fun is just getting started!!!

To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!


Fake....Abstinence is the best Policy...

I'd say the results are

I'd say the results are somewhat accurate comparing the people I live around in NC. 80% of the actual voters rely on mainstream media/newspapers for their information. Paul still isn't widely known.. due to the medias biased view towards him. It's a shame the majority still eat up all the talking points and obvious media blackout of Paul throughout the years.

"One man with courage is a majority." ~ Andrew Jackson

why is this downvoted?

he is giving his opinion from his home state..? seems legit and somewhat accurate based on the voting. heck, Im glad we got 2nd there..

Uhhh, can we please use our heads

I didn't realize that so many were reactionary conspiracy theorists. Let's focus on what we've been focusing on for Thelast five years. Educating the ignorant masses on how our corrupt and privately owned Federal Reserve system, civil liberties, and the Constitution. I sympathize with all of you who find it hard to believe in the widespread idiocy of this country. If The fraud exists as you think it does that will be duplicated in the general election.

Unless you have Concrete documented proof of voting machine fraud then please refrain from baseless speculation. This is why blind an double blind experiments are done. It is hard to imagine but even though thousands attend Ron Paul Rallies, ten times as many still don't know who he is. It also doesn't mean all those supporters in attendance will vote. They may be out of state, a felon who can't vote, or not registered as a republican. There are countless common sense reasons to believe that it's just stupid people doing what stupid people do.

Conspiracies are fact

I know it can be hard to get your head around as it goes against everything we have been told. When you have investigated this for yourself you will reach the same conclusion. We have all been through the same process of realizing that we have been told lies about everything all our lives and that this is no accident or random coincident but rather a very sinister and deliberate ploy to keep us all in the dark, unhappy, unhealthy and basically clueless about anything of real importance.

I know I can't convince you and that is the beauty of it. We all have to realize truth by ourselves and in our own time. One day you will be writing a similar post to this to someone else who is ready to take responsibility for his/her own beliefs and is open to hear the truth.

I wish you all the best, you are entering a fantastic and wonderful journey.

Peace and love.

Well said

"stupid people doing what stupid people do"

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

Tell it to the birds

You've been here all of 2 weeks. There is countless accounts and multiple whistle blowers that have shown how easy it is to hack electronic voting machines. Even in Alabama Maine etc where they can't rig caucuses they are intentionally leaving out Paul delegates.. George Soros's company out of Spain that's going to do the vote tallying for the National Presidential campaign. Who sent you here and why?

To show how easy it is

Rig Nebraska to go 100% for Ron Paul.


Ha ha ha. Sure, just need to borrow a voting machine.

Or... Just pretend I'm a reporter for the MSM:

Breaking News... Ron Paul won 100%... Breaking News... Shazad voted for Ron Paul

It's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes.

How about finding 98,000 NC Santorum supporters. He dropped out & endorsed Romney. Find them, please.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. - Matthew 10:16

Get me one of those cards

and a card reader and I will show you how simple it is. I only programmed in Machine language years ago, you know the one's and zero's. I still understand how nesting is done and algorithms, this would be a cake walk.

But then I have to have access to the vote machines, but then only the criminals have access too bad.

...hey by the way, cool name

...hey by the way, cool name there beeman.

There's a guy in PA with the name beeman going to trial for not paying taxes... comes to mind when I see that name

I'm a fan

I've been there

was a draw, please Ron Paul slay the IRS! But now they owe me $14,000 because they screwed with my exemptions.

I am actually a bee keeper in Minnesota. I have customers that drive as far as 200 miles to get my honey. It is too bad it maybe my last year after over 20 years. Monsanto has been putting out that poison that killed all the insects, not to worry we are next lol. But then the Fukisma nukes may get us first!

Nice reply beeman

The IRS is a criminal agency....period!
They will go down soon when President Paul takes office!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

You've got to be kidding me.

So now I am supposed to be some secretive operative of George Soros? My name is David Reber. Google me check me out on Facebook. You are delving into the realm of psychosis. You apparently aren't familiar with the concept of Occam's Razor. What is a matter of its easy to hack a voting machine? It's easy just steal someone's mail too, so if the mailbox is empty does that mean someone stole their mail? If a person is found dead in the street do you Assume it to be a suicide? No of course not the police would conduct a lengthy investigation.

I don't care if you're peter pan.

You're delusional to think the election isn't rigged at this point. How is it possible then.. using your superb analytical skills and occam's razor mentality to not see how in caucus states they can't make these perfect percentages, unless of course they leave out delegate votes purposefully. I know the list of fallacious arguments used in battle. Don't bring a pencil to a intellectual sword fight son.


That conspiracy is getting old. Nobody's "rigging" the elections. 80% of Republican primary voters watch Fox news and/or listen to talk radio. Fox news and talk radio are biased against Ron Paul and therefore 80% of Republican primary voters are going to be influenced in some way, shape, or form by their media intake.
