If that's true, they're also blocking the one about John McCain. I'm assuming they're taking out anything politics related from that field.

McCain's has a 1012, and should be there as well.

Of course, maybe it was blind error that left out Paul and a tasteful decision to leave off McCain.

1200 diggs! Whatever happened to Digg?

I guess it died to Facebook and twitter...

Good thing too. We owned that placed when we tried, but overall, democratic news devolved into a cesspool.

I'm happy we had one win today for Paul, it was a battle!

I'm happy about my vote for Baldwin too and I feel good about it. I'm so glad I didn't blindly vote for evil. I voted for the right person.

But, what's probably most important, is that I've learned more in the last six months about politics and our government than I have in my entire life.

It's the journey, not the destination.

907 Diggs! Please help Digg up all the replies, even bad ones!

Let the bad be heard - comments only reflect upon the poster. Plus negative comments help bury a Digg (I'm prettty sure now).

Some of them are buried kind of deep, are negative and could use a few diggs (just hold your nose)


Ron Paul's Convention Speech

I have posted here before

I have posted here before about going back and forth with one of my liberal friends about RP, monetary policy, etc., and he has NEVER said word one in a positive light about Dr. Paul. I sent him the link to this article, and here was his reply:


"Well this certainly explains all the Google and Microsoft donations"


"Those donations are from employees, not the companies.
i think there's a libertarian bent among some employees of those companies, that's all."


"It's sometimes hard to tell companies apart from their employees, many of whom are shareholders, but a lot of people who value privacy and are against internet censorship definitely donated to him."


"i am sure there's some truth to what you're saying, but i am also sure there are a lot of other reasons some of those folks like Paul, for example drug policy (lots of stoners at Google).

Most of those donations are in the couple-few hundred dollar range, none more than 2300 (at that end i am sure there are some shareholders).

i think employees of those companies also donated a lot to the other candidates, if i remember correctly.

but employee donations aside, i personally respect Paul's advocacy for privacy."

Now that's what I call progress.
