Actually, Mitt Romney is secretly winning a lot FEWER delegates than you think
It's not just about Romney losing the upcoming contests, its also about him losing the delegates he supposedly already has...
The Mainstream Media and political bigwigs in both parties have declared Mitt Romney the presumptive GOP nominee. This “presumptive” declaration is at best premature when even favorable estimates have Romney hundreds of delegates short of reaching the magic number of 1,144 delegates required to win the Republican nomination.
Romney needs about 300 more delegates from the remaining 14 contests to claim the nomination.
Meanwhile, there is a final charge being mounted by the anti-Romney, pro-Paul alliance to make sure Romney does not reach the 1,144 by contesting the last 14 states or by winning hundreds of delegates in states he's supposedly already won.

"...New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s latest piece “Death of a Fairy Tale” is yet another rant against austerity measures in Europe, especially in Britain. Such measures, he argues, would be disastrous for the United States, even though the world’s superpower is now more than $15 trillion in debt, with the highest deficits since World War Two. Krugman has consistently argued for a big government approach towards America’s economic problems – greater stimulus spending, higher taxes, and more bailouts.
The Nobel prize-winning economist’s article is highly misleading in its claim that austerity is the cause of Europe’s economic woes today, an assertion that is not backed up by any evidence..."

[InfoWars] Warrantless checkpoints in the city of Liberty, Kentucky that were used by authorities to interrogate drivers who refused to display a sticker in their vehicle have been ruled unconstitutional by the Kentucky Supreme Court.
Residents who refused to buy the $10 dollar sticker were targeted after city officials ordered police to set up roadblocks. Those displaying the sticker were allowed through but refusniks were interrogated and had their vehicles searched, a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment.

The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."
"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

Ron Paul dealt a quiet, but embarrassing, blow to Republican rival Mitt Romney this weekend, scoring an impressive delegate victory on the presumptive nominee's home turf.
Nice to hear RP's name in MSM without all the bile attached.
I was at work and there was a female reporter out front w/ a camera, all by herself.
So I walked up and asked, where's the cameraman?
She laughed and told me it was a one woman show. She was doing a story on DUI arrests in Myrtle Beach. 49 last YTD and 159 YTD this year.
I told her about MSM massive declines in viewership. She knew.
I asked her why she thought it was happening, she knew.
I brought up Ron Paul and the MSM blackout, she knew!
I told her about all the recent States and Delegate wins, she did NOT KNOW!
Ben Finally posted it, enjoy.
Great news: I have a guarantee of $2,500 to use for SB mailings in Arkansas. The money kicks in WHEN we match it. My donors are FIRED-UP by our results in LA. Let’s show them what we can do and match their funds quickly. More could be coming!!
I know a lot of people in Arkansas who are pro-Ron Paul, including several owners of health food stores. Let's combine mailings with canvassing and calls. With Santorum out of the race, we can open even more eyes.
After hitting the streets all over the country, I am convinced about one thing. It’s that if you show enough Americans about Dr. Paul’s message, you will win plenty of converts.
Let’s use one of our most powerful tools, the Super Brochure, to win the upcoming states. We can win Arkansas. We just have to combine the canvassing, with direct mail, and, finally, confirming the vote. So, let's get out the vote through direct mail--buy your precincts, now:

“Thank you for wearing that.”
As a married man with two children, the days of me putting great thought into what I am going to wear for the day have long left me. However, this past weekend I did take great pride in wearing my Ron Paul t-shirt. Now I have worn the shirt before to family outings, public places and even on vacation in Boston when my wife and I walked the Freedom Trail. But this past weekend was special.
I have the great honor of being a part of a committee that hosts an event every year where students all across the state of Ohio can come and compete in various events. All totaled, about 1,500 students and countless parents, volunteers and pastors – yes pastors – attend the event. See, this is a religious event full of the most devout evangelical Christians that you can find. And since the majority of my time is spent running around and conversing with students, I saw it as an opportunity to help educate the next generation – should they ask of course.
However, much to my surprise, I was stopped by more parents and pastors than I can remember. Some simply said thanks and some briefly chanted “President Paul”. But a great deal of them stopped with legitimate questions. One man in particular, a pastor of a fairly large church, stopped me to discuss two “issues” that he takes with Dr. Paul. His first was his desire to legalize marijuana. After a brief discussion where I explained the costs of the War on Drugs along with the ease at which I was able to purchase pot in high and the difficultly with purchasing alcohol (I wasn’t always a Christian), he quickly relented on this issue. I could tell that this was only a side point for him, and that his greatest hang up with The Good Doctor was coming next.
