Ron Paul Gets A VERY Close Third in Maine

Ron Paul Gets A VERY Close Third in Maine

Andrew Malcolm
LA Times
February 3, 2008

Former Gov. Mitt Romney convincingly won the Maine Republican caucus tonight with about 52% of the vote.

The current GOP front-runner, Arizona Sen. John McCain, is running a distant second with 22% and Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian-minded longshot, is in a very close third with 19% of the vote. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is trailing badly with only 5%.

With nearly two-thirds of the votes counted, Maine Republican Party Vice Chairman Scott Kauffman said, “It is very sure that former Gov. Romney wins the contest.”

Although Maine does not carry the political clout of many other states, it could provide a helpful psychological boost going into nearly two dozen crucial Super Tuesday contests this week for Romney’s forces, who lost to McCain in Florida, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Nearly half the delegates necessary to win the Republican nomination will be chosen Tuesday.

In a statement tonight, Romney, who was campaigning today in the upper Midwest after attending the funeral of Gordon Hinckley, the president of the Mormon church, in Salt Lake City, said, “Today the people of Maine joined those from across the nation in casting their vote for conservative change in Washington.”

The actual number of Maine delegates he won in the non-binding caucuses will be determined at a state convention in May.

It was a disappointing night for Ron Paul. The campaign of the 72-year-old, 10-term congressman from Texas with the well-financed campaign had hoped to pull an upset in independent-minded Maine. And he did come close to embarrassing McCain for second place, which Paul also won in the Louisiana and Nevada caucuses.

Maine Democrats hold their statewide caucuses next weekend.

 

Ron Paul Sweeps Northern Maine Caucuses

Fort Fairfield Journal
February 3, 2008

Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul scored a stunning upset win over all three of his opponents in the Aroostook County Presidential Preference Survey during the weekend caucuses just concluded. It also would appear that Dr. Paul’s supporters won the lion’s share of the delegate seats to the Maine Republican Convention in early May from the county.

There were 3 undecided voters in Aroostook County with regard to the presidential preference. This vote is a non-binding survey merely intended to indicate Maine Republicans’ preference for President. Delegates were also selected for many towns to the Republican State Convention.

Aroostook County volunteer coordinator of the Ron Paul 2008 effort, and Vice-chairman of the county Republicans, Steve Martin of Amity, had this to say about the upset results. “I love Aroostook County people. They are the most independent-minded and deeply-considerate folks in Maine. It is clear that Dr. Paul’s message of reduced government, lower taxes, personal liberties and non-interference in the internal matters of other nations struck a cord here in Aroostook County. Dr. Paul’s opposition to a Northern Maine National Park coupled with his deep respect for private property and gun rights also played a part in sweeping all three caucus locations.”

The county Republicans will be meeting again for their regular monthly meetings at the Presque Isle Inn & Convention Center on Saturday morning, February 16th at 9:00 AM.

With all Aroostook towns reporting, the results were as follows for Aroostook’s 3 caucus locations:

Fort Kent:
Ron Paul 3
Mitt Romney 2
Mike Huckabee 2
John McCain 1

Houlton:
Ron Paul 16
Mitt Romney 11
Mike Huckabee 8
John McCain 4

Presque Isle:
Ron Paul 29
Mitt Romney 27
John McCain 17
Mike Huckabee 16

Aroostook County totals with percentages:

Ron Paul: 48 votes 34.5%
Mitt Romney 40 votes 28.8%
Mike Huckabee 26 votes 18.7%
John McCain 22 votes 15.8%
Undecided 3 votes 2.1%

 

Ron Paul scores 1st in Bergen County straw poll

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZEX0hYOZIg

Ron Paul, the conservative Texas congressman and long-shot presidential hopeful, pulled off a small and symbolic upset in Bergen County today by winning a straw poll leading up to Super Tuesday.

The vote, sponsored by the Bergen County Republican Organization, drew more than 100 people to Hackensack, and included a boisterous contingent of Paul supporters, many from outside Bergen County. They listened to four representatives for the four remaining GOP contenders before casting votes, giving Paul a 52-40 victory over Arizona Sen. John McCain.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney placed third with 27 votes, while former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee got just one vote.

Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) spoke on behalf of McCain (R-Ariz.) and like others, invoked the memory of Ronald Reagan and wore a tie given to him by the former president embroidered with the words “democracy is not a spectator sport.”

He used that as a transition, saying McCain “is a man resolved to do first and foremost what is best for this country no matter the cost to him politically.”

State Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) stumped for Romney and, echoing a feeling from many of the old Republican guard in the room, said it was time to focus on the two “serious” GOP candidates, McCain and Romney.

However it was the Paul supporters who yelled the loudest, waived the most signs and eventually cast the most ballots.

Ron Paul Wins 80% in Arizona Straw Poll

Business Journal
January 11, 2008

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul won a straw poll this week held by an Arizona group representing young GOP entrepreneurs and business professionals.

The Republican Professionals Association conducted the poll this week.

Paul won the poll, with 80 percent of the vote, followed by Sen. John McCain of Arizona, with 12 percent. There were 515 votes cast, according to RPA.

McCain picked up the endorsement of the Tampa Tribune on Friday. He also has received a number of newspaper endorsements on the GOP side of the 2008 White House race.

Paul opposes the war and most government spending. He wants to dismantle the Internal Revenue Service and what he calls America’s ’empire’ abroad, including military bases and reducing foreign aid.

Ron Paul Wins Presidential Election

Resist / Revolt
December 5, 2007

According to Google Trends, if the election happened today, Ron Paul would be the next U.S. President. In a competition between Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul is the most searched for presidential candidate in the 2008 election. What CNN doesn’t realize, what the neocons don’t realize, is that Google is all-powerful, even beyond them. Google Trends accurately predicted the last U.S. President, George W. Bush.Will Ron Paul’s popularity continue to rise and spread? We hope so.

‘View’ hosts grill Paul on abortion

‘View’ hosts grill Paul on abortion

Nick Juliano
Raw Story
December 4, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7kKSSbPJbM

Ron Paul defended his anti-abortion stance during an intense grilling from the women hosting “The View” Tuesday, acknowledging that he was unlikely to convince the pro-choice women of his position and that it would be virtually impossible to completely outlaw the procedure nationally.

“I don’t think we’re ever going to reach a stage where there will no abortions,” Paul said. The Texas congressman, whose long-shot bid for the Republican nomination is gaining steam, said he would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned. But Paul said state governments should be able to decide for themselves how to regulate abortion. “But I want to sort this out the way the constitution mandates, and that is at the local level.”

Paul, a former OB-GYN, said his anti-abortion position was based on his view that a fetus was a human being with the same rights as any other person. Just as he advocated personal privacy that would not give people the right’s to commit murder, he did not view a woman’s claim to her own body as superior to the fetus’s right to life.

“It’s a legal position because I honor and respect the rights of the mother. But your home too; your home is your castle,” Paul said. “I don’t want any government in your home: no searches without warrants, no cameras. But you can’t kill your baby in your home.”

The hosts spent several minutes discussing Paul’s abortion position, although they spent virtually no time on the libertarian lawmaker’s fierce opposition to the war in Iraq and his calls for limiting American intervention abroad, which have garnered him substantial support online.

Paul is the first candidate to appear on the popular daytime talk show since a writers strike began last month. Democratic candidates have said they would not cross picket lines to appear on The View while the strike persists; a CBS-sponsored debate could also be canceled because of Democrats refusals to participate if that network’s news writers call a strike.

On Tuesday’s show, Paul — a proponent of returning to the gold standard — said the dollar’s ongoing loss of value is “one of the most serious threats we’re facing today.”

Paul was visibly agitated when co-host Joy Behar told him, “you probably are not going to win and you know that,” then asked who among the Republicans he would be willing to vote for.

“You want those pro-war people to win?” Paul asked. “No, you don’t. … If they come around endorsing my anti-war views, and pro-free-markets and sound money, yeah I would consider it, but I don’t have anybody now that I could vote for.”

Paul: Republicans Face Certain Defeat With Pro-War Candidate


Paul: Republicans Face Certain Defeat With Pro-War Candidate
Congressman says base must change views on Iraq or forget about the White House in 2008

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
December 3, 2007

Ron Paul has a message for the Republican base who continue to offer blinkered support for the endless occupation of Iraq – pick a candidate who has vowed to bring the troops home immediately or surrender the White House in 2008.

“Since 70 per cent of the American people want out of the war and they’re tired of it – the Republicans better pick somebody who is opposed to the war or have a new foreign policy or they can’t win,” the Congressman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer yesterday.

“The sentiment is shifting, the people are sick and tired of the war, we can’t even afford it, we can’t even fight the war without borrowing the money from the Chinese – so it doesn’t add up – it really doesn’t matter whether I’m right or wrong, the war is going to end because we’re going to have such a political and financial havoc here….this is usually how empires end – by spending too much money maintaining their empires,” he added.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTj3STZqviY

The Congressman’s warning is backed up by the polls. A recent Zogby survey found that a sizeable majority of Americans will not vote for a pro-war candidate. Zogby polling analyst Fritz Wenzel agrees that Ron Paul is the strongest contender out of the entire Republican field to go up against Hillary Clinton because of his lone anti-war stance.

In an earlier part of the interview, the Congressman elaborated on his response to Senator John McCain’s feeble attempt to smear Paul as a Nazi appeaser during Wednesday night’s debate.

“First off, Iraq is not Nazi Germany,” a humored Paul commented.

“I thought it was Hitler that caused world war two, not the American people….it didn’t make any sense – then he was awfully confused about isolationism versus non-intervention – there’s a big difference,” said the Congressman.

Paul said that non-interventionism meant not getting involved in other country’s affairs and “not pretending that Iraq is Nazi Germany.”

“Iraq had no army, no navy, and no weapons of mass destruction – it had nothing to do with 9/11 – so the comparison makes no sense,” he concluded.

McCain’s claim that U.S. troops want to stay in Iraq has no basis in reality.

Out of all the Republican candidates, Ron Paul has by received far the highest military donations, that is donations from members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. The Congressman has received double McCain’s total and over eight times the amount garnered by Romney or Giuliani.

The troops support Ron Paul because Ron Paul advocates bringing the troops home.

Moreover, a recent Zogby poll found that the Congressman also has the highest support amongst military families, far ahead of Giuliani, McCain or any of the other Republican stooges who want to keep the troops in the meat grinder.

 

Obama Supporters Fail Attempt to Emulate Ron Paul’s “Money-Bomb”

Ron Paul’s campaign raised $4.2 million from 37,000 supporters on Nov. 5th and other candidates have taken notice. A Barack Obama supporter created an event called Barack’s Friday that was supposed to raise the campaign $5 million on Nov. 16th. The event was a LITERAL BOMB; the event raised a mere $4,650 from 72 individuals.

Here is the proof from Barack’s website

Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney have also failed to emulate “money bombs” of any substantial significance.

Contrast that, to having hundreds of people travel from all around the country, quitting their jobs, and going into personal debt, to campaign in New Hampshire door to door in 3 degree windchild for Ron Paul. Read the article from salon.com about the lengths Ron Paul supporters are going through to save the country.

All Obama’s money is coming from corporate PAC money because people aren’t enthusastic about him. All Ron Paul’s money and volunteers are coming from people who know we are living in serious times and don’t want, but KNOW we HAVE TO change the country/world, AND SOON before it’s too late.

The dollar is collapsing; economists admit we’re probably going into another Depression soon. Ron Paul’s solutions for the economy/foreign policy are what we need to turn around. Not Barack Obama, who offers no solutions to this issue and says attacking Iran is OK and fear-mongering just like everyone else “we need to stop the terrorsits”!

Go to google news and type in “dollar” and research it yourself. Then go research what Ron Paul has been saying and doing in congress for 3 decades about it.

Ron Paul Wins Virginia Straw Poll

Ron Paul Wins Virginia Straw Poll

Tyler Whitley
Richmond Times Dispatch
December 2, 2007

ARLINGTON — Texas Rep. Ron Paul easily won a presidential poll at a Republican Party of Virginia conference here yesterday.

Paul polled 182 out of about 500 votes cast. Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson finished second with 112 votes, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee finished third with 51 votes.

The straw poll was held at the 24th annual Republican Advance, generally attended by activists and grass-roots workers, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in the Washington suburbs.

Republican officials dismissed the poll’s outcome, noting that Paul has been concentrating on winning straw polls all over the country.

Paul bused in young supporters. They waved signs and shouted loudly when his name was mentioned.

“He brought people in here. What is more critical to look at is who finished second and third. That is a more true indicator of the feelings of the Republican Party of Virginia,” said Tucker Watkins of Randolph in Charlotte County, a former 5th District GOP chairman.

Virginia Republicans and Democrats will each hold presidential primaries on Feb. 12. Because several other states have earlier votes, many observers think the nominees of the two parties will be decided by the time Virginians choose.

The major candidates, occupied in Iowa or New Hampshire where the earliest nominating contests will be held, sent surrogates yesterday.

The meeting brought good news for former Gov. Jim Gilmore, who is seeking the party’s nomination to run for the U.S. Senate. A prospective opponent, Del. Christopher B. Saxman of Staunton, said he would not seek the nomination. He said he would not be able to raise money while the General Assembly is in session this winter and so would not be able to mount a credible candidacy.

Del. Robert G. Marshall of Prince William has hinted that he might run, but he did not show up and had a friend read a statement prepared by him which indicated he likely would not run.

Gilmore in a brief speech to the Republicans, urged against defeatism and said he could beat former Gov. Mark R. Warner, a Democratic candidate for the seat now held by Republican Sen. John W. Warner, who is retiring.

“We’ve won two statewide contests [attorney general and governor], we’ve carried Northern Virginia twice,” Gilmore said.

 

Media Getting Wind of Ron Paul Blimp

Colette Von Hessen
Nolan Chart
December 1, 2007

It was bound to happen. The mainstream media are starting to get wind of the Ron Paul Blimp. Yes, you read that correctly — a blimp. In case you have been hiding under an Internet boulder, Ron Paul’s wildly creative and resourceful supporters have been up to their old tricks again, much to the dismay of leftists around the country. I’m sure the neocons at Redstate will have their fun with this one, too — they surely miss the traffic now that they’ve banned Ron Paul supporters from posting anything about the candidate on their blogs. Ron Paul? Das ist verboten! But back to the dirigible: a blimp is born, and his name is Who is Ron Paul?


The Los Angeles Times published a piece today called “Foot Soldiers for the Ron Paul Revolution.” Yes, you read that correctly: the L.A. Times actually referred to the revolution as just that, a revolution. In the article they mention the Ron Paul Blimp as part of a laundry list of decentralized campaign achievements at the grassroots level: “One Colorado backer quickly raised more than $350,000 online this week, with a plan to launch a Ron Paul blimp.”

Who in the old media will be next to discover the airborne Paulmobile? We’ll be waiting…

Romney Supporters Caught Voting Multiple Times In Florida Straw Poll

Mitt Romney bought himself a victory in the straw poll for Republicans at a rain-shortened barbecue in Vinoy Park. Romney got 893 votes, besting second-place Ron Paul’s 534 — despite Paul’s shuttling in supporters on a rented trolley and shuttle. The campaign had a plane sporting pro-Paul slogans and a boat touting him, too.

In fact, Paul supporters dominated the crowd, which reached an estimated 1,000 people. Tickets for votes cost $20 each.

So how did Romney do it?

“I voted 20 times,” Derek Gyongzois, 38, of St. Petersburg exclaimed after casting ballots.

He said he works as a volunteer for the Romney campaign (and begged a reporter not to print his 20-vote tally). Did he buy the tickets?

“I don’t have that kind of money,” Gyongzois said.

He wasn’t the only person voting more than once. Paul supporter Mike Wagner, 57, of St. Petersburg: “This thing is rigged.”

Before rain cut short the event, Paul supporters were voting multiple times, too.

“This is the best election money can buy, anywhere,” said Pinellas County GOP chairman Tony DiMatteo, a Rudy Giuliani supporter. Giuliani received 39 votes, followed by Mike Huckabee’s 37 and Fred Thompson’s 21. John McCain had 12; Duncan Hunter, 4, Alan Keyes, 2; and Tom Tancredo, 1.

Will Ron Paul Be Excluded from Iowa Debates?

UPDATE: Iowa GOP and Ron Paul Campaign Headquarters: Ron Paul is not out of the debate

Ron Paul Radio
November 9, 2007

LB interviewed the Iowa GOP and Iowa Ron Paul 2008 campaign headquarters. In a live interview on the Soapbox Spectacle, John Zambanini made clear there is no attempt to prevent Dr. Paul from participating in the December 4th debates. Polling of Iowa voters by American Research Group and the Des Moines Register indicated the 5% threshold has been reached. Mr. Zambanini stated that “the campaign would like to remain on friendly terms with the state GOP and any effort to call them in response to claims of Dr. Paul being excluded should be avoided.” Please do not call the Iowa GOP.

Rasmussen shows Ron Paul currently polling at 5% following the November 5th fundraising blitz.


Will Ron Paul Be Excluded from Iowa Debates?

Jones Report
November 6, 2007

A press release today indicates that Ron Paul could be excluded from the December 4 Iowa Debates if he doesn’t average at least 5% in poll indexes related specifically to telephone polls, the American Research Group, Inc. poll and the Des Moines Register poll.

The exclusionary tactic comes just after Ron Paul raised a record $4.2 million online in a single day– gaining national coverage and boosting his campaign profile.

However, a brief post from Des Moines Register does list Ron Paul as included, but leaves off Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo:

That would include former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Arizona Sen. John McCain, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson. It could leave out U.S. Reps. Duncan Hunter of California and Tom Tancredo of Colorado.

But Ron Paul only polled 4% in the October 1-3 Des Moines Register poll and only 1% in the American Research Group, Inc. poll. The rules state that eligibility will be based on the “most recent” polls, so the question of his inclusion is still unclear.

The registration deadline for the debate will be the last day in November, according to a spokesperson from the Republican Party of Iowa.

Paul has typically not done well on ‘land line’ telephone polls, yet has dominated the straw polls across the nation and has unprecedented support online and has led nearly every post-debate poll in the primaries.

Ron Paul skeptics point to his 5th place position in the Ames Straw Poll, yet he placed above Giuliani, Fred Thompson and John McCain.

Ron Paul Supporters Prove CNBC’s Ratings Stink

Ron Paul Supporters Prove CNBC’s Ratings Stink

Mark Anderson
Op Ed News
October 13, 2007

After the most recent Republican Party debate on CNBC, the network ran a post-debate poll, which was promptly removed after too many Ron Paul supporters voted. In all seriousness, the explanation for removal is that Ron Paul supporters voted. In other words: CNBC didn’t like the results, so then removed their own poll.

This prompts the question: if poll results are to be discarded because you don’t like the results, then why even run a poll? This almost causes me to wonder if the “scientific” and “legitimate” polls are also designed to achieve a pre-ordained outcome. If a polling company gets something other than a desired result, do they change the results, or throw the poll out altogether?

In the CNBC editor’s explanation, he writes: “Now Paul is a fine gentleman with some substantial backing and, by the way, was a dynamic presence throughout the debate , but I haven’t seen him pull those kind of numbers in any ‘legit’ poll.”

You see? Pursuant to this calculus, all polls must show the same results – which makes them something other than real polls. If there is a disparity between two polls, then the one showing Ron Paul in the lead must be wrong, and then discarded. If, on the other hand, say, Rudy Giuliani had won the poll by a hefty margin, would they have discarded those results as well?

Which prompts the question: if Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, and John McCain are the true front-runners, with legions of fans everywhere, why can’t they replicate the same thing Ron Paul supporters are doing? Where are the supporters for the other candidates?

What exactly makes the offline polls so much more scientific? In those polls, the polling companies get to choose the respondents. In online polls, people can choose to respond. Let’s not forget that elections are not conducted the same way polls are. The media and the polling companies do not get to choose who they want to vote.

Ron Paul has dominated virtually every single post-debate poll, causing the media to ignore and conceal the results of their own polls. The media has ignored so many Ron Paul debate poll victories that I have lost count. After Ron Paul does well in a poll, there is always some status quo conspiracy theorist to come along and accuse Ron Paul supporters of “spamming” or “hacking” polls, albeit without offering any evidence.

Many people who have researched this issue more than I have concluded that “spamming” polls isn’t as easy as pretended. For example: polling software will prevent a single Internet Protocol address (i.e., I.P. address, which is unique for every computer) from voting more than once.

Okay. So it is possible to vote a plurality of times in a single poll. Although I have never attempted to vote more than once in any poll, theoretically, I could have pulled off such a feat by voting once on my computer, and then, I suppose, drive to a friend’s house to vote from their computer as well. But so could any other candidate’s supporter do the same thing.

If we are to assume that if Ron Paul does well in a poll, it must have been due to a certain percentage of spam votes, then it would only be fair to assume the same trend for all of the candidates. Do Ron Paul supporters have super-secret poll spamming technology that nobody else knows of? Are only Ron Paul supporters motivated enough to attempt this?

Or, what about Sean Hannity explaining away the results of FOX News’ own poll by saying that Ron Paul supporters were “re-dialing” in text messages? That one was done via cellular phone text messaging, and it was impossible to vote more than once from one cell phone. Well, I suppose I could own more than one cell phone. But then so could any of the other candidate’s supporters. Only Ron Paul supporters “cheat” now? Is that it?

BTW, I only have one cellular phone, as I can barely afford to pay my only cellular phone bill.

If Ron Paul supporters are so technologically savvy, are so willing to cheat, and possess such secretive technology that seems to escape everybody else, then I must say I feel much more re-assured about the future of U.S. elections. We should have no problem stopping Diebold from tampering with the real election results, right?

It shouldn’t be so hard to believe Ron Paul could do well in polls for those who pay careful attention to the news. Albeit, one has to look hard for the news coverage. Ron Paul has been doing very well at straw polls. “Spamming” a straw poll in which the person must show up and vote in the flesh would be a fairly difficult feat to pull off.

When I looked at the results of the CNBC poll which was removed, the first thought that came to my mind was that CNBC may be trying to conceal more than just another Ron Paul victory.

There were just over 7,000 votes cast in their poll. Ron Paul garnered 75% of the vote. This means approximately 5,250 votes were cast for Ron Paul, leaving the other 8 candidates with a combined total of approximately 1,750 votes.

If we are compelled to abide by the mainstream media’s “scientific” curve, then we are allowed to give Ron Paul no more than, say, 2% of the total. This means we can add approximately 36 votes for Ron Paul onto the 1,750, throwing out 5,214 Ron Paul votes. This leaves us with a grand total of 1,786 votes cast on CNBC’s post-debate poll.

What do I see in this? Either a)There was no spamming, in which case Ron Paul supporters outnumber CNBC viewers by far, or b)As CNBC claims, Ron Paul’s total has to match the “scientific” polls, making everything else “spam,” meaning CNBC had only 1,786 viewers who voted in the poll.

From what I can tell, CNBC should be very concerned about its own ratings. The old media is dead. If polls showed that more than .05% of the population watches CNBC, I couldn’t believe it. I would have to discard those poll results. Maybe CNBC is trying to conceal its piss poor ratings.

How else do you explain the supporters of a man garnering “2%” in the “scientific” polls organizing so effectively that they are able to skew poll results of a network television station 3-to-1 in their favor, against 8 other candidates?

Smear Campaign Against Ron Paul Goes Into Overdrive

Smear Campaign Against Ron Paul Goes Into Overdrive
Corporate media peddles ridiculous conspiracy theories that Ron Paul’s meteoric popularity is entirely fake

Steve Watson
Infowars.net
October 12, 2007

The smear campaign against Presidential candidate Ron Paul has hit an all time high with the corporate media today ludicrously declaring that the Congressman’s immense worldwide popularity is all a huge con emanating from Dr Paul’s own office.

Rupert Murdoch owned Australian outlet News.com.au has today disseminated the most insidious and farcical report concerning Ron Paul to date.

Headlined Republican Ron Paul in possible ‘fake online campaign’, the article attempts to convince the reader that every aspect of Ron Paul’s popularity, from his you tube website, to his dominance of online polls and debate polls has been totally faked by his own staff!

The astounding accusation reads:

A CANDIDATE for the US presidency is being buoyed by a massive online campaign that may be a fake grassroots movement organised by party staff.

Head of Flinders University’s Department of American Studies Don De Bats told NEWS.com.au that it “sounded like” an astroturfing campaign.

Astroturfing is the term used to describe a fake grassroots campaign, where members of an organisation create the illusion that “ordinary people” are behind the movement.

Note how the author of the article uses words such as “possible” and “may” and sounded like” to cover the fact that its content is total baloney from start to finish and could even be considered libelous.

From what I can make out (please correct me if I’m wrong because this trash is almost incoherent) the author, Mark Schliebs, then makes a pathetic rambling attempt to sell the notion that because popular youtube videos of Ron Paul were uploaded by the same person with the username RonPaul2008dotcom this means it is some sort of massive fake conspiracy???!

As blogger Darryl Mason points out in this excellent rebuttal, “The RonPaul2008 channel is an election channel, which every presidential wannabe who is seriously pursuing an online audience also has, including Billary, Giuliani and Barack Obama. It’s an online campaign, so of course Ron Paul supporters or Ron Paul’s own office is going to post clips, just as the teams behind Giuliani, Billary and Obama are now also doing.”

Ron Paul’s most popular clips on youtube have received tens of thousands of views, where as figures for Rudy Giuliani’s most popular clips are in the low hundreds or even in the 90’s. Ron Paul’s youtube channel has been viewed 4.5 million times by supporters, is youtube in on this mass conspiracy too? Is youtube fixing its viewing figures for Ron Paul?

To add insult to injury Schliebs then throws in the “expert analysis” of an American studies professor. Not a technological expert or an experienced internet campaigner or someone within another successful grassroots organisation, but a guy who lectures about Abe Lincoln to 17 year olds:

Professor De Bats said that for a relatively unknown candidate like Dr Paul to have so much prominence online was suspicious.

“I would not put any credibility on those results,” Prof De Bats said.

“I find it terrifically surprising and unlikely (that Dr Paul would attract that level of response).”

I find it terrifically surprising that such awful journalism can make it into umpteen nationally syndicated newspapers, but it still has.

The piece reads like Schliebs has been ordered to attack Ron Paul and has just taken a wild stab in the dark with no foundation of evidence or substance and then had the gall to find some unwitting person with the letters “PhD” after their name to agree with him.

Similar claims denying reality have been made about Ron Paul’s dominance in polls after Republican debates. Despite the fact that most major media organisations only allow one vote from each IP address or mobile phone, for text messaging polls, corporate media outlets keep suggesting that their own polls are being rigged and hijacked by Ron Paul spammers.

In a familiar move CNBC even removed its own poll on Tuesday night just hours after the debate had ended when they realized Ron Paul was winning by such a wide margin.

Today CNBC Managing Editor, Allen Wastler, responded to demands for an explanation by clearly stating that CNBC pulled the poll because Ron Paul was winning. Wastler then also spouted the conspiracy theory that every poll is being rigged for Ron Paul to win:

Now Paul is a fine gentleman with some substantial backing and, by the way, was a dynamic presence throughout the debate , but I haven’t seen him pull those kind of numbers in any “legit” poll. Our poll was either hacked or the target of a campaign. So we took the poll down.

The next day, our email basked was flooded with Ron Paul support messages. And the computer logs showed the poll had been hit with traffic from Ron Paul chat sites. I learned other Internet polls that night had been hit in similar fashion. Congratulations. You folks are obviously well-organized and feel strongly about your candidate and I can’t help but admire that.

Some of you Ron Paul fans take issue with my decision to take the poll down. Fine. When a well-organized and committed “few” can throw the results of a system meant to reflect the sentiments of “the many,” I get a little worried. I’d take it down again.

What kind of twisted logic is this? Ron Paul has more fans and is attracting more committed and organised supporters than any other candidate, so it’s not fair? We are talking about the lead up to a democratic election for crying out loud, THAT’S THE POINT OF AN ELECTION, TO DETERMINE WHO IS THE MOST POPULAR!!

Dear Mr Wastler, some Ron Paul detractors take issue with the fact Ron Paul is trouncing the opposition. Fine. But when a well-organized and committed “few” can throw the results of a system meant to reflect the sentiments of “the many,” I get a little worried.

If a huge mass of people vote for Ron Paul and don’t vote for Giuliani, too bad for Rudy, that does not mean the poll has been “hacked”! If you don’t show up to vote, your vote doesn’t get counted my friend.

If a football teams scores more points than their rivals because their players come out more committed and stronger, does it mean the game was rigged?

Many Neo-Con blog sites now do not even include Ron Paul in their polls anymore, pretending that he doesn’t exist because too many people are voting for him!

How ridiculous is this going to get? If Ron Paul won the primaries and won the election would he then be stripped of the presidency because too many people want him to be president?

And I guess every other facet of Ron Paul’s campaign has been rigged too. I guess the 5.1 million dollars he has raised is totally fake. I guess the fact that Ron Paul is the only Republican who is gaining in campaign funds is also fake. Ron Paul has won more straw polls than any other Republican candidate, that’s fake naturally. The sun that came up this morning, that’s fake too.

Corporate media outlets and interests are clearly frightened to death that the Congressman and his campaign of freedom and limited government has quickly become a huge phenomenon and that there is now a very serious chance for a Ron Paul candidacy.

Ron Paul Revolution Rally Draws 800


Ron Paul Revolution Rally Draws 800

MSNBC
October 1, 2007

Even a half hour after Ron Paul‘s “Revolution” rally ended in downtown Manchester, there was a crowd larger than other candidates could only hope to draw. The campaign estimated that as many as 800 people showed up as the Texas congressman kicked off a canvassing effort in New Hampshire’s three largest cities.

 

The campaign gave out buttons asking: “Who is Ron Paul?” But who are Ron Paul’s supporters? “I think they’re new to the process,” said Paul’s son, Rand Paul. “We definitely have Democrats that are crossing over, Libertarians crossing over, Independents crossing over. And I think the people that come out are definitely gonna vote.”

Rand Paul said that every day he’s surprised at “how big” his father’s campaign has gotten. Last week, they asked supporters to raise $500,000. “They passed that in three days, and now we’re asking them to raise a million,” Rand Paul said. By Sunday, they had done just that. And Rand Paul said his father might end the third fundraising quarter with more cash on hand than most of the other Republicans. “We may have more money on hand than Romney if you subtract what he’s given himself,” he said.

Paul rejected a comparison to Howard Dean‘s Internet fueled 2004 campaign, which fizzled by the time votes were actually cast. “My dad has been going around the country for 30 years, and has a following,” Paul said. “It’s definitely a committed core. Howard Dean didn’t have that cohesive message and a philosophy.” What Dean and Paul have in common is their anti-war message. And Paul said his father’s stance makes him the Republican with “the best chance of getting independent voters over.”

 

WMUR-TV To Ron Paul: Drop Dead?

FMNN
October 1, 2007

Once again New Hampshire’s state-wide TV station apparently declined to cover GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Tex), even though his well-attended “Family Day” rally took place this past weekend in Manchester where WMUR is headquartered.

Sources close to the rally claimed that WMUR cameras and reporters were nowhere to be seen. The seeming lack of coverage by the TV station is notable, because New Hampshire’s newspapers do not reach the state’s several million citizens the way its single, state-wide TV station can. In one or two segments, WMUR 9 – an ABC affiliate – could educate hundreds of thousands of viewers about Ron Paul’s libertarian-constitutionalist message. Additionally, local coverage has a chance of being picked up by the national ABC network. But that coverage has, according to Ron Paul sources, been minimal thus far.

When it came to the recent Family Walk, the WMUR station was called numerous times, according to sources close to the campaign. The answer volunteers and staffers received was always the same: The station does not select news stories until the day of the event. In this case, WMUR eventually made a decision to cover presidential candidates John McCain and John Edwards, and reportedly two other candidates as well.

FMNN came into the possession of an email making the rounds in New Hampshire that stated WMUR actually carried a segment “on four candidates having events in NH this weekend.” But not Ron Paul. WMUR’s lack of enthusiasm for covering the candidate might be more understandable had not 30 of Ron Paul’s children and relatives shown up to campaign for him on Saturday. At nearly the same time, last-minute Ron Paul donations totalled over $1 million, and he is moving up in the New Hampshire polls.

The confluence of news events: the Family Walk, the fund raising, Ron Paul’s headway in New Hampshire would all bode well for signficant news coverage. Yet none was forthcoming from New Hampshire’s only statewide station.

C-Span, as FMNN has reported, covered some of the New Hampshire events that Ron Paul participated in over the weekend, and this makes the lack of coverage by WMUR all the more puzzling.

“Is it bias?” mused one top level Ron Paul volunteer. “Whether or not they approve of Ron Paul, they should make a pretense of being even-handed.”

This volunteer and others said that the WMUR execs that had answered the phone had been cold, short, “even rude.” And she added, “Maybe they were getting a lot of calls. But they still didn’t respond. They never have. In this case they said they were ‘too busy.'”

A search of WMUR archives reveals that the few available clips on Ron Paul are mostly debate-related. The most recent features Ron Paul explaining how the war on drugs has failed, and is from the recent PBS debate. Yet WMUR’s political coverage is seemingly recognized as outstanding. Wikipedia had this to say about WMUR 9:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WMUR-TV

During election seasons, WMUR is well-known for organizing and producing some of the higher profile candidate debates for ABC News, as well as CNN, before the first United States presidential primary. On March 9, 2005, as a result of its coverage of political events, the station won the “USC Annenberg Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism” for the third consecutive time.

Ron Paul Sees Crisis Ahead For Country

Ron Paul Sees Crisis Ahead For Country

Seattle Times
September 17, 2007

Texas Congressman Ron Paul said in Seattle on Friday that America is approaching an economic and constitutional crisis due to growing debt, bad trade deals and assaults on personal liberty.

And even if he beat all the odds and won the presidency next year, he said, the problem would be beyond what he alone could fix.

“The time is coming. I believe that the great debate is coming,” Paul told more than 400 mostly young people who attended his constitutional lecture at Seattle University.

“We have become soft on the issue of liberty and we have become more concerned about our personal safety and our personal economic well-being and an illusionary trust that government can make us perfectly safe and protect us perfectly in an economic way,” he said.

Paul said young people will have to decide whether to go along with the “clichés” that say the Constitution is a living, flexible document.

“It is a philosophical struggle,” he said. “If you are for a strict interpretation of the Constitution, if you are truly for liberty and for limited government … then the law will come along.”

For Paul, who ran for president as a Libertarian in 1988, a strict interpretation of the Constitution would mean a lot of changes. Talking to KIRO-AM (710) host Dori Monson earlier in the day, Paul said he thought the government could be cut by 80 percent. That’d be enough that there’d be no need for the income tax or a replacement tax, he said.

At Seattle University, he said Congress has willingly given away far too much power to the executive branch, particularly when it comes to foreign policy. He said the president is commander in chief of the military, but “he’s not commander in chief of the people of the country.”

Congress should reassert itself with trade policy as well, he said, and not leave the administration to set tariffs or make deals with “WTO or NAFTA or CAFTA,” trade agreements he pronounced with such disdain they sounded like diseases.

States, Paul said, should rely on a principle in the Constitution that allows them to ignore decisions by federal courts on issues that could be described as dealing with states’ rights.

“I see the Constitution as being written precisely for one purpose — to restrain the power of government; never to restrain the people,” he said to great applause.

Paul had a full day of events in Seattle, including fundraisers and rallies. Speeches have become rarer in presidential politics. Some candidates come to town with no public appearances, or only for base-building rallies.

The lecture was organized by Seattle University law students. What’s the appeal of Paul to the young supporters?

“Everything,” said Malisa Gurule, a third-year law student who headed the drive to get Paul on campus.

Gurule, 25, said she had never donated to a presidential candidate until she saw Paul in the Republican debates. She’s also never voted in a presidential primary or been involved in a caucus, though she says she will do whatever is needed to help Paul get the GOP nomination.

“He’s the only person saying something different,” she said. “He’s not afraid to attack the status quo.”

Hunter Wins Texas Straw Poll – Ron Paul Third

Associated Press
September 2, 2007

FORT WORTH, Texas – California congressman Duncan Hunter won Texas’ first Republican Party Straw Poll on Saturday in a low-turnout event that lacked the top-tier presidential candidates.

Hunter got 534 votes, or 41 percent of the vote. Former Tennessee senator and actor Fred Thompson, who is expected to announce his candidacy next week but was not at the event, came in second with 266 votes, or nearly 21 percent. Texas congressman Ron Paul came in third with 217 votes, or 17 percent.

Crowd support seemed split between Hunter and Paul, whose supporters waved signs and chanted his name throughout the day. Other candidates attending were Chicago businessman John Cox, who got 10 votes; counterterrorism expert Hugh Cort of Birmingham, Ala., who got three votes; and tool-and-die maker Ray McKinney of Savannah, Ga., with 28 votes.

Each of the other absent but better-known candidates received less than 7 percent of the vote. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee came in fourth with 83 votes; former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani got 78 votes; former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney received 61 votes; and Arizona Sen. John McCain garnered eight votes.

Others who didn’t attend, Kansas senator Sam Brownback and Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo, each received six votes.

The Texas primary is March 4.

The Texas straw poll is only for party activists, and those casting ballots must have been a delegate or alternate to a recent GOP state or national convention. Last month’s Iowa Republican straw poll, in which Romney won, was open to any voter who paid for a ticket.

Texas GOP officials had said they expected 2,000 people to vote Saturday, but only 1,300 did.

Ron Paul Wins Washington Straw Poll

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – Representative Ron Paul won the South Sound Ronald Reagan Republican Club’s straw poll last night in Snohomish County, Washington. Dr. Paul received 30 percent of the vote, beating out Fred Thompson who garnered 27 percent.

The victory continues a string of straw poll successes for Dr. Paul. In the past week, the Republican congressman and OB doctor won contests in North Carolina, New Hampshire and Alabama.

“Our campaign is growing by the day and continues to build momentum,” said campaign manager Lew Moore. “This victory demonstrates strong grassroots support in the important state of Washington.”

Establishment Media Ignores Ron Paul Straw Poll Success

Establishment Media Ignores Ron Paul Straw Poll Success
Press lauds Romney’s victory in meaningless Iowa contest, yet barely acknowledges Texas Congressman’s sweep of Alabama and New Hampshire

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
August 20, 2007

The establishment media has sought to bury and scoff at Ron Paul’s dominating success in the Alabama and New Hampshire straw polls, while exalting the meaningless Iowa contest as a bellwether benchmark of national sentiment simply because their stooge Mitt Romney was the winner.

The Texas Congressman completely demolished the opposition in the Alabama straw poll, achieving 216 votes (81%) compared to Romney’s 14 and Giuliani’s 7.

He also trounced the contest’s only southerner, Mike Huckabee, by a clear 210 votes.

The Alabama state primary will play a very prominent role in next year’s presidential election because it is expected to be moved forward and become one of the first.

Ron Paul was also victorious in New Hampshire this weekend after garnering 73% of the vote at the Strafford County GOP straw poll.

All the candidates had representatives in New Hampshire and Paul easily beat off Tancredo and Huckabee, who were there in person. A PR attempt on behalf of the Romney campaign to place signs all around the venue got a return of just 26 votes.

The significance of straw polls can be debated back and forth, but what can’t be argued is the fact that Mitt Romney received lavish coverage from the media after his success in Iowa – despite the fact that the Iowa straw poll has historically proven to be meaningless – yet Paul’s victory in Alamaba and New Hampshire was met with muted dismissal.

“Now, granted, Alan Keyes won the last contested GOP straw poll in 1999, followed by Orrin Hatch, with eventual nominee George W. Bush coming in third,” writes Outside the Beltway’s James Joyner, “But Pat Robertson won the Iowa straw poll in 1987 and the press still pretends that contest is meaningful. Indeed, the winner in Ames has only gone on to win the nomination once. George H.W. Bush won the poll in 1979 and went on to lose the nomination to Ronald Reagan. Then, Bush lost the poll in 1987 (to Robertson) only to win the nomination. The other George Bush won in Ames in 1999, though, and also won the whole thing. So they’re 1 for 4!”

If the race was on a level playing field and the establishment media afforded as much attention to Ron Paul’s success as they gave Mitt Romney after the Iowa straw poll, the Texas Congressman’s campaign would be given unstoppable momentum, which is why at every turn the press have sought to dismiss, ridicule and ignore the only Constitutional candidate on the roster – Congressman Ron Paul.

(CNN)–Mitt Romney added another straw poll victory to his resume Thursday.

Illinois state Republican party chairman, Andy McKenna, said Romney won the Illinois Straw poll at the Illinois State Fair.

“Congratulations to Mitt Romney, whose strong showing today indicates he has begun to put together a strong statewide organization,” McKenna said. “There’s no question that Illinois’ demographics closely match those of the United States and this could be an indication as to whom Illinois voters are leaning toward this coming February.”

Romney secured an overwhelming victory with 40.35 percent of the vote. Former Senator Fred Thompson, who is expected to formally enter the race for the GOP nomination next month, came in second with 19.96 percent of the vote.

The Illinois Republican party sponsored the straw poll during its Republican Day festivities at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.

To be included, participate candidates were required to have participated in one of the previously held debates with other Republican candidates, or have polled above 5 percent in a national, independent poll.

Final results of Thursday’s Illinois straw poll:

1. Mitt Romney – 40.35%

2. Fred Thompson – 19.96%

3. Ron Paul – 18.87%

4. Rudy Giuliani – 11.61%

5. John McCain – 4.12%

6. Mike Huckabee – 3.04%

7. Sam Brownback – 1.08%

8. Duncan Hunter – .65%

9. Tom Tancredo – .33%
