Boss Major.

I can't get over how clearly

I can't get over how clearly and succinctly Ben can articulate complex topics.

Are the Elections rigged???

Are the Elections rigged??? Does a bear poop in the woods?

As always, great report from Mr. Swann!

Let us disappoint the Men who are raising themselves upon the ruin of this Country. John Adams


duh!! The amazing thing is that people still think they are voting, for real....

Hey, can you please take a look at this and send to meetups, facebook, etc? Need a lot of help here


100 years ago

the 2 party process was more open to other views. The Republican National Convention of 1920 went through 10 rounds of voting before a candidate, out of 8 that were all allowed to speak, was chosen.

Now, we have the RNC doing all it can to quell any but one voice in the party. Booooo.

As Usual

Great Job Ben Swann!!
Gary Johnson will be on the Alex Jones Show 3rd hr.

Great new video: Are The Presidential Debates Broken?

Here's a great new video I found from the folks at THNKR, a new original YouTube channel, discussing how the current Presidential Debate system is broken:


Check it out and re-post elsewhere. Help spread the word that the current Presidential Debate system needs to be fixed!

The debates are RIGGED and SO are the elections.


Anyone who votes without using the strategy outlined in www.WriteInREVOLUTION.com is simply donating "digital currency" that WILL be manipulated and credited to whichever candidate has been preselected by the establishment to "win" the election.

since your making folks

since your making folks aware? , you should add that 40 plus states do not even count un-certified write-ins. Be honest!

Ron Paul 2016

which are the 6 states ?

Which are the 6 states where independent voters out-number the democraps & republiturds ?

What would the Founders do?


Ben is such a bada$$

Talking Heads

I didn't watch debate.But I did read drudge report this morning.They commented on how Romney did so so well.Looks like the mainstream voters out there took the DE-bait.Hook line and sinker.Fish on.Its funny to see this charade put on Americans.But also sad too.

Money talks and dogs bark

the entire situation with the campaigns, the conventions . . .

and now the debates is a debacle. Ludicrous.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Of course this "may be the last election controlled by this...."

This IS the last presidential election.

How can we dissolve the Commission on Presidential Debates?



U Can't!!!
The league for Women Voter Dropped their support for the Election Debates because the PARTIES took the debates over. They said fair debates are no long possible!!! And they were no great shakes.;-)
But far better than this Kabuki theater.

SO, what CAN we do?

What should we do??

Another rock solid report by

Another rock solid report by the best journalist in the country. Welcome to Amerika, ran by the Reprubicrat dynasty.

I like Ben but

this seems a little late. How about when they refused to let Dr Paul participate? How about having commies "moderate" the GOP debates? How about the stage placement of Dr Paul always at the outer fringe of the group even after Iowa? EVERYTHING is rigged.

Write in Ron Paul

This game is rigged. Obama and Romney are two sides of the same coin. Johnson isn't even allowed to play. I am going to write in Ron Paul. What about you?

POLL: Will you write in Ron Paul?
Vote: http://www.wepolls.com/p/12160354/Do-you-plan-to-write-in-Ro...

Gary Johnson

Why would you write in Ron Paul when Gary Johnson is on the ballot? I love Ron Paul and so does Gary Johnson. Your poll is skewed, as there was no Gary Johnson option.

"Your poll is skewed, as

"Your poll is skewed, as there was no Gary Johnson option."

It's a yes/no question about writing in RON PAUL, NOT about voting for the lesser evil.

Johnson is allowed to play.

He is on the ballot in all 50 states. I love Ron Paul but I'm going with Johnson on this one. My feeling is that if Ron Paul gets too many votes and Romney fails, Ron Paul and supporters will be blamed for it. This will only serve to further set back the cause of liberty, if, that's not the plan already. Just a thought.

No matter how we plan to

No matter how we plan to vote, if Romney loses, we will receive the blame. So don't vote based on trying to please the snakes. Besides, who cares what a den of vipers thinks?


if you write-in a state that

if you write-in a state that doesn't even count un-certified write-ins and a large majority do not. Then your wasting your time and should vote on sims/ps3.

Colorado write-ins are useless and will not be counted and 40 plus states join colorado.

Maine and a few others will count actual write-ins, if certified. that is why maine votes will count. Anyone writing in ron paul in states that do not count un-certified votes is just a feelgood motion that will never be heard and felt.

Ron Paul 2016

I can't believe how many

I can't believe how many people don't know that third parties exist. Seriously? You've never heard of them before? Our country is so screwed. This teacher is like "OMG surprise to everyone, there are other candidates!!! WTF?!"

It's not like these people are not paying attention for just this election. It's like they've never paid attention... ever... to any election... or politics in general. Sigh.

I think the teacher is VERY smart

I really think she was trying to get a reaction from the media. Because if you listen them you would never know about third parties. Kind of using sarcasm to demonstrate how screwed up MSM is.

Teachers Today Don't Seem to Know Much

Here she is teaching kids about elections and she didn't even know about third parties. I once had a teacher that taught history and she had never heard of the Bounty or any of the history behind it!


Jesse Ventura Presented this at the Ron Paul "convention" 2008

It needs to be kept in front of everyone's eyes.

The fact that there are those financially boycotting the debates to force the issue of inclusiveness is Good news.

These companies will need to be increased so that a more "prestigious" debate can visually overshadow the to major party debates.
