Also, think about what new people coming to this site that

are interested in reading about Dr. Paul. Do you think they'll be turned off reading about fraud this and fraud that every single day?

It's enough to turn me off to certain Paul supporters.

If you see real fraud happening, then do something about it. Don't just spend your days complaining about it on an internet forum.

this is very true

Your posts are 100% correct. Too many people jump way too quickly to "fraud" despite a complete lack of evidence, and it really does feed into negative stereotypes about Paul supporters. Pretending that Paul is winning these primaries but that the votes are all being stolen also leads to a complete misdiagnosis of the problem.

They cheat asshole

we have them on camera. What the fuck would you know about credibility anyway.

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

Dr. Paul would not appreciate your message.

Probably understand your anger but would want you to channel your energy in ways less likely to play right into our opponents' hands. Stay cool, my friend. I've cut and pasted the following from your own personal message to the rest of DP:

"....That is until someone told me of a guy named Dr.Ron Paul.. His message, the revolution America is experiencing has been a healing reminder that I wasn't alone as I thought I was for all of those years. That I had brothers and sisters in Liberty who still held our Founding Father's American Spirits firmly in their hearts.

May God Bless you all."

May God Bless you rp4pres. Cooler heads win hearts with reason and logic; this is a one healing tenet of our movement. There are others.

Thanx,

Jason

That's not the healing I spoke of.

I spoke of the feeling that my whole country was fucking insane and finding out that I had brothers and sisters in Liberty..

That doesn't mean I'm going to agree with them all on every topic nor does it mean I think that all that are here are in fact here for Liberty.

It also doesn't mean that I'm raging on a keyboard because I use curse words. I curse all the time.. sometimes I'm laughing, crying, yelling and humping while I do it and everything in between.

It also doesn't mean that I can't bite the head off of someone verbally and STILL see them as a brother and sister in Liberty. Nor does it mean that it diminishes who I am in Liberty...as a matter of fact, if anything I'm giving all an example of Liberty by being myself unapologetic-ally so.

That's just the way I am.. Like it or leave it love it or lick it. I'm not looking to be a Ron Paul clone.. I am though a Ron Paul individualist.

Real mature buddy.

Really win some votes for RP with that kind of talk.

I don't know

What you expect from us Paul Supporters. We take Our Freedom pretty dam serious. This isn't some political game. We want this now! Or it will be too late. The media and article continue to trash us. It's like being bullied all your life but now your standing up for yourself. There is going to be some anger involved. People have to deal with it. What surprises me the most is how the older generation still follow the same old game being played. Your trying to tell me after 50 yrs there life, they still don't get how corrupt our Government is?? Really??

How do you know it won't..

There are probably some that agree with me that you're wrong. Not everyone is blind like yourself.

+1

Would be great if it were fraud, though...

Anyone have ANY ideas why

Dr. Paul has been dropping in the Rasmussen Presidential Match-up polls when for months he has been statistically tied or beating Obama? He'll be down 6 points from Obama and Romney will be up 2 or 3. Any ideas??? This is new and I don't like it. WHY when someone is given the choice between Paul and Obama would Obama be leading???

The debates really helped

The debates really helped Paul but he isn't in the MSM at all any more. They just focus on Romney and Obama. Most people don't even know he's still running.

Push polling by MSM

Is likely the cause. Repeat a lie long enough and people will believe it.
It's like The Matrix, us red pills are trying to help the blue pills unplug. Unfortunately many have become so dependent on it that they will not listen nor are they ready. We just need to keep our heads cool. Yes the playing field is unfair and extremely difficult. But I believe with the strength of God we will prevail. Look how far we've come?
Pay less attention to polls for now, they are only a measure of how blue pills perceive the lies they are being told.
Pay less attention to the MSM lest you get discouraged. We are the real MSM for red pills anyway.

Did you vote for all of them?

Nope

I'm in SC. Just wondering. The straw vote is such a joke. We better get delegates though..

▶ For Indiana

The Indiana state convention is what's really important!! Don't get bogged down with these fixed primaries. in 2008 Paul got 31,699 total votes(7.68%) right now he has 60,679 (15.1%)with 58.9% of the precincts reporting. We are doing well. Just remember that to tell Paul supporters in Indiana that there may still be slots open to become delegates, but only have a about a week to do so!!! Check with your county!

Is it me or does it seem too uniformly 2x last election percents

It seems I keep hearing that RP has consistently doubled his percentages (example above) Is that statistically improbable in all these states?

RP R3VOLution

it's hard to say, when he

it's hard to say, when he doesn't out perform that 2x then I really believe the fix is in. However, in states like NH and WI he got 3x - 4x as many votes from 2008

I honestly don't understand what's up

with North Carolina. Is it the huge amount of immigration from Latin America? Is it a massive migration of North Easterners to suburban NC? North Carolina used to be among the most Conservative states in the nation, but went for BO in 2008 and is now giving Romney 66%. I realize the media is pretending that Romney's the only one left, but if this is how liberal NC has become, it's going to be almost impossible to ever get a Constitutionalist elected president.

The short answer is yes.

The short answer is yes.

50%

50% of the people voting for Mittens are doing so because the media tells them he can beat Obama and that is all they want. That is why a commercial showing Pauls crowds/poll numbers vs Mitts is long overdo. And the commercial needs to end with the question do Republicans want to beat Obama in November.

new kind of vote fraud?

This is pathetic do people know Gingrich and Santorum aren't running? Is this a way to rip off votes for Paul by getting shills to vote for the dropped people?
Not to be conspiratorial but this looks like foul play straight up.

AP called it for Romney 20 min. ago for IN & NC

WV starting to come in.

Attention INDIANA Its about

Attention INDIANA

Its about the delegates!

There are still delegate slots available! FILL THEM time is about up!

To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!

Election Fraud for Romney

But delegates will be taken by us and we will deny Obama 2.0 the nomination.

I swear,

sometimes I'm embarrassed to live in a state that is apparently jam-packed with freaking morons. I wish I could attribute this to fraud, but it appears to me that most North Carolinians are just stupid.

Why the heck is Santorum still on the ballot, anyway?! He's already ENDORSED ROMNEY!
