sure does have a death wish!

But establishment types, people in power, never see their demise coming. They always believe that things will be just as they planned it. And usually, they are right.

Hopefully, they are swept away by the R3VOLution this time.

How nice of them...

The Diebold machines are letting Ron Paul tie Presido county with Romney so far, a whole 2 votes for each, with 1 vote that is uncommitted.

Hard to fraud five people

Hard to commit fraud in a county of 5 people, they are all at the diner discussing there votes and the outcome.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

Great point.

It would be funny if it wasnt so sad..

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

I will say it now, like I said before

This sucks! But was expected. Just hoping you guys can score some of the delegates away from Romney and anyone picked to be a delegate was a Paul supporter. Also we all have to stop waiting for Ron Paul to get elected and fix the country. We have to do it ourselves. We know protesting hasn't worked, we now know voting isn't working. So that leads to one option left. Let me know when you guys are ready. This patriots on stand by. It will come, whether any of you want it or not. But there will be a violent revolution if this non violent solution fails.

I am with you


I really hope...

...it never comes to that.


It is inevitable...

It is inevitable, I have imagined the scenario since I was a boy; the govt. doesn't want to cease power of what they have established. They will even invoke martial law to stop the revolution. Since I know it is inevitable, I welcome it, bring it now, not WAY LATER; shit like a bad dream or something.

WAKE UP FOLKS! Take your country back. No one is looking, and no one even cares, that is why they are dangerous, they do NOTHING. Damn if we could get people to care and to act. grr.

election fraud ...

soooo... we've seen it all, no surprises there,
the fraud happens and we have no way to prove it.
But okay, it doesn't matter cause we go for delegates

Here's now the question though:

Assuming RP wins in Tampa, gets the nomination
and fights the big fight against the big 'O',
how in the world is RP supposed to win an election
with a system that's so easy to rig?
(And be sure, they won't rig it in our favor)

So Sad

that instead of organizing votes, some complain of voter fraud. We will never win if every argument for a loss is voter fraud. Did you ever think Ron Paul pulled advertising from the state? Did you ever think Jesse Benton suspended the Ron Paul campaign where no more money or events would be scheduled.
I am a huge Paul supporter with money and organization. But I must admit the campaign is so horrible and different this time than 2008 when they stayed to the end and had principle.

I don't care what you say,

I don't care what you say, every state was rigged man! Every president has been hand picked by the Nwo man!

Delegates for the General election are called Electors...

State Electors have more strict rules than party delegates, but they are essentially the same thing... We live in a Republic (thank goodness), not a democracy, where the popular vote means anything at all.

Simply put: The vote will mean just as much on November 4th as it does today. The media will just be more loud and obnoxious.



Ron Paul is fighting against GOP rigged elections. The general elections are another thing entirely. They mess with them and that is nation wide, more eyes on that than these primaries. Yes there is some funny business with the general, but not like the GOP primaries.

I am serious guys, we have to get moving on a plan B. If they screw Paul out of the nomination steps will have to ba taken. We can't just slump through 4 more years of Obama in hopes of Rand. He never said he wanted to be president, also what makes some of you think he will have an easier time than his dad? I mean they let Ron keep his senate seat, but he was never allowed to go any higher. Rand is just a rookie senator. Snap out of it guys. There will be no Rand Paul. it is either Paul now, or police state and FEMA camps tomorrow. We have to get ready and mobilized.

You need to watch that mouth...

You are on a website where the opposition to the establishment resides.

Your computer has an IP address.

Your ISP is owned by the big media corporations...

Need I go on or will you shut up now?


GOP = Democrats = Diebold

it's all the same and the establishment will use it against us.
How many eyes do you need if thousands are not enough already?

One good way to start doing something about it would be to throw out the electronic voting. And that movement can't start early enough.

General elections are with electors though,
who puts them on the slate?

One Word....


Goodnight just like a previous statement... No one likes Romney.. They will cheat til the end folks ... be ready.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Tell me again

why should we stay in the Republican Party? In hopes that Rand will take up the mantle of his father? Is that what his meeting with Romney was all about. Sorry but we should screw the Republicans and let them go down. Sorry all you Obama haters but Romney is the same thing.


La Salle County

Here's a good one. LaSalle County has 100% of precincts reporting and 0% for each candidate. Do you suppose this was a Ron Paul victory and they're stalling while they figure out what to report?

LIBERTY2ME's picture

Was there any exit polling

Was there any exit polling for RP in TX?

My favorite so far

My favorite so far is Harris Co (Houston) where Romney has over 53K votes with 0.0% (0/1065) reporting.

EDIT: Just jumped to 58K with 17.5% reporting. I don't see why these sites even report this stuff in real time; it's quirky and opens the process up to skepticism.

People in Texas

Seriously, who is J. Davis? He tied with Ron Paul in Terrell County. Is he even a candidate?

Look to The State Convention

The texas state convention is June 7-9, 2012. Let's own the crap out of Romney and show them we won't be bought and we won't be cheated. There's a faq sheet below:


Good Night All...I'll Be Looking Forward To The

Louisiana, Washington, and Missouri State Conventions this Saturday, June 2nd...

Here is the Ustream Link for the Missouri State Convention...


So lemme get this straight...

CNN, at 52% reporting now, says that 1/2 of a Million people showed up to vote tonight for the republican primary...

A week or so after the last of R$'s competition "dropped out."

So half of a MILLION people felt the need to show up at the polls to vote for a man running unopposed???

There is NO WAY IN HELL that anyone showed up today to vote for R$. NOT A SINGLE ONE. NADA.

Sure, some may have gone to vote for their local officers and pushed the R$ button while they were there, but you don't get turnouts like a Half MILLION PEOPLE for that!

These votes were mostly ALL FOR PAUL. I'll be waiting with baited breathe to see the results of Dr.K.Research's attempts to uncover fraud today...


I hope when you guys claim your country back...

I hope that when you guys claim your country back that you celebrate by doing the following to all of the voting machines.


Moving on to the delegate stage

Ok, so we all knew this was going happen; Ron Paul is not going to win the Texas Primary. The important thing is the delegates though, right?

When will the delegates be decided in Texas? And will Ron Paul be able to secure any of them? I read somewhere that the delegates are allocated proportionally or something similar, and that you need a certain %age of the primary to qualify for that. Is this true?

Texas Apportionamet Rules

The best document I have found for the various RNC delegate apportionment rules is:
2012 National Delegate Chart

I hope this helps

Everyone, go look at Lamar County

Michelle Bachman was virtually tied with Mitt Romney and now she's completely dropped out.

I saw that too?

Whats the deal with that, Bachman and Romney were tied on 2079 votes I think. Didnt get a screenshot of it though, bugga.

It was weird.
