Ron Paul Suporters Angry about New Proof Republican VOTING FRAUD Athens-Clarke County Georgia March 2012

March 18, 2012

New Proof Republican VOTING FRAUD Athens-Clarke County Georgia March 2012 – YouTube:

And Michael Medved during the 2008 campaign got so angry about third party efforts and told us all that we must work through the two-party system.

But see how they violate their own rules when their party grassroots starts thinking for itself.

And don’t buy that crossover baloney. Ron Paul supporters are coming from fundamentalist Christians, social conservatives, Bible thumpers, Jewish settlers, homosexuals and Lesbians, strippers and Puritans, young and old though especially the young, Obama defectors, former Herman Cain supporters, Mormons, Baptists, Hindus, atheists, almost any background you can think of.

What a shame that the Three Fake Conservatives are not standing up for fair treatment for Ron Paul delegates. What a shame that the fake conservative talk show hosts instead of defending the right of the grassroots for fair treatment for the only one with a real conservative platform. What a shame that they are all piling on him instead as his support begins to overtake them one by one.

RNC wants to throw the election again looks like, as they did in 2008, and that’s it. Then they pull out all the stops, show their fangs, and stop pretending to respect anybody’s rights, maybe declare an emergency, maybe have a false flag operation, and continue sending the dollar down the rabbit hole.


Iowa reflects America, slurs against farmers and whites are unmerited

January 3, 2012 angelical-to-ignorant-and-thus-too-irrelevant.html

I watched a CSpan interview with a journalist who has been covering the Iowa caucuses for about twenty years, and a couple of callers commented and asked about this very thing, about Iowa being an atypical American demographic.

He made the obvious point that if you go over the history of the caucuses, you’ll find that the results in Iowa show that each of the two major political parties there reflect the party as a national whole. He used 2008 as an example, when Barack Obama won the Democratic Party caucus and went on to win the nomination.

What did Andrea Mitchell say after Obama won in Iowa?

And what has she said about Alan Keyes (Obama’s opponent for Senate), Clarence Thomas, and Herman Cain?

And oh, my gosh, what would Andrea Mitchell say about this black-folks march against the NAACP?:

A representative from the New York City Charter School Center distributed flyers with excerpts of the NAACP’s mission statement to people entering the rally. Center officials argued that the lawsuit contradicts the NAACP’s mission to “ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race based discrimination.”

The NAACP spokesperson said they are in favor of alternatives to public schools, but the lawsuit seeks to close down 18 alternatives that are doing black students much more good than their government school neighbors.

One could argue that opponents of charter schools only want to keep black folks entrapped with inferior education without an alternative.

Freedom is for individuals, not groups.

“Let my people GO!”


Media lies and spin about Ron Paul

December 28, 2011

Dick Polman’s inanities in a Boston Herald article revisits the list of why leftists who love Big Government don’t like Ron Paul, telling Republicans –in an insulting way– why they should not vote for him. It exposes exactly the kind of inanities, to use his own word, of today’s oligarch-directed politics that passes for acceptable to lock-step media (note that I did not say “goose-stepping media”):


It is an example of why Americans are sick and tired of being told what to think, who to vote for, who is electable and unelectable, and sick and tired of being told they can only choose between bad and worse for their elected officials.

That’s why I picked it as a good way to answer the author’s own inanities and show again why people are gathering to Ron Paul who represents what Americans already believe about basic principles, and who helps demonstrate how to apply them.


Dick says: “Most GOP rank-and-filers are apoplectic about Paul’s ascent — as well they should be.”

No, Dick, not “rank and filers”. It’s the Republican hierarchy in checkered pants who are worried as they play a round of 18 links. The rank-and-filers are the ones who are discovering than not only do they agree with most of what Ron Paul says, not only are they accepting that the rest of it makes sense, not only do they realize that Ron Paul is the one with the best mastery of all his subjects especially the ones that the nation needs right now. They have discovered the difference between an honest Joe –that is, an honest Ron Paul– and a professional politician.


Now that Ron Paul is poised to actually win the Number One spot in the Iowa caucuses, the author says Iowa doesn’t count for anything. That’s what they lockstep (I didn’t say goose step) Oligarch Media will say if it happens.  They’ll say it doesn’t matter for the nomination or the election, never mind that Jimmy Carter won in 1976 and went on to win the Dem. nomination (like this guy admits), and never mind that’s where Dean flamed out most famously in 2004.


Note that even though here he is, first in Iowa polls, and the strongest second in New Hampshire, and despite being the candidate who has the ONLY chance to beat Obama in 2012 according to several polls,  this clueless Dick Polman still yet calls him “cranky fringe candidate”.

Hey, Dick, didn’t you get the memo? He’s not “fringe” anymore! And none of his colleagues call him “cranky”! We the people are NOT “fringe”!


Mr. Clueless says he “wants to erase the safety net”.

Hey Dick, didn’t you get the memo? The “safety net” has been ruled hazardous to your retirement and your health, and has a multitude of holes in it! It’s so crowded it’s about to crash and burn!


—Yeah, they just worry about the next lobbyist contribution, I guess

And you admit that his reasoning is that it’s unconstitutional, but what does that matter, you don’t ask whether it is or not, you just want to know how it will play out in Florida!? I live in Florida, and tell you, the more I talk to people about Ron Paul, the more I see that just getting to know what he stands for attracts people like a magnet!

And don’t you remember? The old folks got MAD at the AARP representatives who came to town halls pushing Obama’s health scare opiate!  They’re not fooled! I’m not fooled and I’m about to retire! Ron Paul says those who’ve paid in all their lives should get what they’ve expected, that the transition back to constitutionality should be tempered with reality and compassion.


What are old folks supposed to do when the dollar bubble bursts, as is inevitable? That’s the next bubble prediction from Ron Paul, who accurately predicted the end-to-end wars, the housing bubble, the financial crisis, that QE2 and printing money would not work.


Yeah, I once was a little nervous about “legalization of heroin” but guess what? Alcohol is addictive, still causes major pain and loss of life across the nation, and Prohibition DID. NOT. WORK.

And hey, didn’t you get the memo? Drug laws ARE. NOT. WORKING. NOW. EITHER.

And like Ron Paul says, at least with Prohibition the nation realized they had to have a constitutional amendment for it. Drug prohibition gets us crazy results like saying officially that marijuana is as dangerous as heroin (same FDA classification). Oh yeah, we don’t like heroin so we need the government to tell us we can’t have any.

I’m from the 1960’s so I can tell you it doesn’t work.


Where were these guys when Herman Cain was being lynched by a white mob? Using the black-on-white stereotypes that even Obama claimed affected his white grandmother?

Where are all these loudmouths on making the drug laws more fair for blacks and minorities? Where are they on the racism of the different treatment under the law of crack and cocaine? Hey Hollywood stars, “liberals”: how about demanding equal punishment for your cocaine sniffing as blacks get for crack?

The libertarian philosophy considers each person an individual, not as a “group member”. We are all members of the human race, and that’s that. There is only ONE “race”, and that is the HUMAN race.


And the old “desegregating” Civil Rights Act. Hey Clueless, if a black church wants to exclude whites (yes, there are lots of blacks who do talk that way, ask  Tony Evans), or if the Black Muslims want to exclude whites, I say okay, go for it. If Malcolm X wants to say whites can give money but won’t have a say in his organization, that’s also fine with me.

Martin Luther King’s battle was against Jim Crow laws and illegal secret wars against legalized Jim Crow segregation and he stood for equal treatment under the law. NONE of the candidates represent this as much as Ron Paul. Big Bad Brother government oppressed blacks under Jim Crow, and now the government hug of Nanny care is hugging them literally to the death of dependence.


Remember only four years ago they were calling Ron Paul “unelectable”, never mind he’d been reelected to Congress in his district a dozen times? They never imagined that he could win even the Republican nomination, because, they said, his ideas were so different from what we were supposed to think was Republican Party thinking.

But zealous writers in Big Government Media don’t always bide by the obvious truth, so in the face of the obvious fact that Ron Paul is winning over voters by the tens of thousands in Iowa and by the hundreds of thousands and even millions across America, they still keep repeating what they hope will be a self-fulfilling prophecy. It worked for them before sometimes, but it has quit working.


At least the writer gives him that: small government purity that has “inspired a growing fan base”. Then he mentions the four years of preparation by his followers in Iowa for this, but forgot that Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, and the rest have been in and out too.

They’re starting to pull out the heavy scare munitions too now. Telling Iowa that if Ron Paul wins, it’s all over for their credibility. The guy hopes that you forget that in his first paragraph he already said that the Iowa caucus process is “inane”. Although it’s obvious the only reason he really and truly thinks it’s inane is that voters are warming up to Ron Paul and he might actually get the Number One spot there.

The guy is full of unintended complements about Ron Paul:

Who else in that motley crew has accrued an army of enthusiasts?

But then the writer shows that he does not understand Ron Paul’s message at all, and he does not understand why people like him and his honest constitutional consistency and his ideas:

But those enthusiasts won’t like what I now feel compelled to say: Paul will peak in Iowa. Anybody who thinks the traditionally hawkish GOP will actually nominate someone who wants to get tougher with Israel and go easier on Iran, is smoking or shooting the stuff that Paul wants to legalize.

See, they just don’t get it. He doesn’t understand. “Traditionally hawkish GOP” does not define the rank-and-file. George W Bush had to campaign against nation-building in the 2000 season, but became the hawkish president.

He also lives in the land where people can believe in two contradictory things at the same time. If you ask him about Obama’s policies in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Libya, and whether one should consider Obama as “hawkish”, he’ll say no. Cue the cuckoo clock.

And he doesn’t understand something else that is different about the Ron Paul phenomenon. Ron Paul says nothing just to tickle somebody’s ear. This very point is an admission by Ron Paul’s enemies that he does not pander, and that the people he is winning to his cause are convinced by the logic of the ideas, and not the other way around.

It is like Ron Paul has said, his campaign and message has infiltrated the language of the other candidates, even, like the demand to audit the Fed, and rhetoric about the Constitution. Raise your hand if you think Newt Gingrich will push hard to audit the Fed. Really? Both of you?

Meaning, rather than peak in Iowa, Big Media will be forced by a Ron Paul win, to do one of two things: (1) treat him with the same respect that their audience and voters show him and let his message filter to the voters and do what they should have been doing –the watchdog role they claim but have not fulfilled, OR (2) prove that they care nothing for the truth, they care nothing for being fair, and are tools of the government-media complex.


Hey Dick! Maybe the Republican Party bosses have believed in a “muscular presence abroad” but they are NOT rank-and-file and certainly not the average American. When people hear that the USA has troops stationed in over 100 countries around the world, they are shocked! And when they hear Mr. Paul say we should bring them home and spend that money here in the USA instead of abroad, they cheer and cheer!

And when they realize that almost eight years in Iraq and Afghanistan have gotten us nowhere, and Iraq has kicked us out in favor of snuggling up to Iran, and when they are reminded that the United States gives TWICE as much aid to Israel’s enemies as it does to Israel, they’re shocked! Repelled!

One criticism is on the button when the writer says the Republican Party thinks “America can do no wrong”, but that’s the other candidates, but people listening to Mr. Paul are waking up to the fact that it is true that American foreign policy of interventionism everywhere is bad foreign policy and has a blowback element. Intelligence officials of the previous Republican administration and this one have said Ron Paul’s description of blowback as a major catalyst for animosity against America, is very much accurate.

And then the guy closes with the race card again. Not news, but they’ll keep bringing up that one.

Before getting in a twist about that, go ask almost any black what they think about Ron Paul’s position of condemning the racism of the drug wars. And what they think about his intention to pardon every non-violent drug offender from the first day in office. There is a reason the media is refusing to mention that one. If they wanted to scare off Republican voters, they would play that one up, except that if they did, then black folks would start paying attention.

And since Ron Paul is the MOST anti-racist candidate, I say Bring it on!

Ron Paul: First they ignored him, then they laughed at him, and they are not laughing anymore

December 18, 2011

Young India (23 September 1924) Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, vol.29 …..

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win!

Ron Paul:

First they ignored him.

He came up first in half a dozen straw polls, second in the first statewide Iowa poll, and they still pretended he didn’t exist. They kept him away from interviews, avoided mentioning him, the media pretending for the audience that he was nothing to be concerned about.

Then, they laughed at him.

But he kept going. Then between 2008 and 2012, suddenly the economy started acting just like Ron Paul had predicted to everybody. Gingrich is caught during the 2012 campaign interview cycle saying that no one could have predicted the severity of the housing bust or the financial collapse, but someone put that clip on YouTube right next to the clip where another network character interviewing Ron Paul is acknowledging that Ron Paul predicted it completely.

So as the 2012 campaigns got up into gear, they now started laughing at him. He is such a perfect gentleman, even with politicians on the polar opposite end of any of his positions, so they couldn’t catch him in personal insult exchanges. Although he is much aware of the total damage to the country done by the private banking cartel currency monopoly of the “Federal Reserve Bank”, he never used the word “traitor” to describe its chairman like Perry did. He has not lied or engaged in exaggerated hyperbole, so they can’t get a sound bite where he was actually wrong on facts.

So they still called him unelectable, and in between nervous laughter, said his ideas were nutty, like the CNN anchor who told the reporter, “heh heh, Hold the Ron Paul stuff”, while they kept the lie going about the “three front-runners” for the #1, #3, and #4 winners in the Iowa Straw Poll, skipping the obvious “surprise” of Ron Paul, #2. Nervous laughter indeed.

Okay, so with the polls as they were, they were flummoxed because RP was in the top-tier, so now they had to fill the podium with way too many presidential contenders in the debates among the candidates.

So cue more laughter, call him an isolationist, and then start merging into the next phase, and get angry about rogue states like Iran that are a clear and present danger to the United States. Yes, that’s right, you are hearing that right, ladies and gentlemen, we cannot let Iran get ahold of one nuclear bomb because then it will be too late and what will we do? We only have about a zillion nuke warheads we could rain down on them after all.

And shush, don’t tell anybody we could just let Israel loose off the leash and cut off all the aid to the region, where we give twice as much aid to Israel’s enemies as we do to Israel. God knows with half the Republican candidates calling for a war on Iran, we don’t know why they would want to arm themselves with nukes. How dare somebody suggest they might simply want to defend themselves?

O’Reilly does an Internet poll, and Ron Paul and Herman Cain place first and second (he didn’t say which) so of course he disqualifies them because they cheated. How does he know they cheated? Because they won 1st and 2nd place of course. Then he names the winners: the other guys. So now O’Reilly officially joins the informal Propaganda Cartel.

But his numbers kept going up. He wins the CPAC poll, and all of a sudden the usual media oligarch-picked “experts” (ha ha) say it doesn’t matter.

Then he won the California Young Republicans straw poll, but they skipped over covering that.

Then he won the 2011 Values Voters poll, in a conservative gathering, showing that conservatives are hearing the message. So Oligarch Media sent out a memo to their talking heads: it doesn’t count, because Ron Paul voters cheat. By actually voting. Not fair.

Now, they’re fighting him.

So his numbers kept going up. He wins the CPAC poll, and all of a sudden the usual media oligarch-picked “experts” (ha ha) say it doesn’t matter. Then he wins the California Young Republicans straw poll, and they skip over covering that. Then he wins the Values

So now they’re starting to fight.

For example, I heard Rush Limbaugh tell a whopper of a lie to try to stop him, saying he has no chance to beat Obama. Rush knows he has no basis at all to say this, because every poll and every indication is that he is the one with the BEST chance of beating Obama, and wins over more independents and self-identified Democrat Party respondents than any of the other Republican candidates.

So now when they call him isolationist, instead of snickering, they’re growling like bit dogs. It’s the hit dog that howls.

By now they ALL know he is NOT isolationist, in fact, Ron Paul believes in engaging with more countries than they do.

And they know he is a non-interventionist and is not isolationist, and explains that his position on foreign affairs is like Thomas Jefferson’s, and worked pretty good for about 150 years or so for us:

Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Mark Levin went ballistic on one Ron Paul caller, shouted him down and wouldn’t let him talk, yelling the same old tired mantras about Nine-eleven, and terrorists and national defense. And of course telling his call screener, on the air even, to nix all the Ron Paul callers.

But see, Ron Paul is not pandering to the oligarch’s media scripting. We are supposed to all be good team players, and just line up on the Robin Hood side (“tax the rich”) or the Neo-Con side (no cuts to defense, join the “Occupy the World” movement).

A growing number of we the people are tired of going along with the Big Media idea of what we’re supposed to do.

He doesn’t pander to audience popularity or saying something to get elected either.

Like the Limbaugh said, Ron Paul does not just say what people like to hear, he just tells it like it is, tells it as he sees it –no teleprompter necessary, by the way– even when his audience doesn’t like it. And he obviously knows his subject every time he says something.

The more people are able to hear from Ron Paul himself, and hear what his ideas really are, the more supporters he gathers. And the ones who understand his ideas never go back, because his candidacy is riding completely on his ideas. In other words, it’s not just a matter of getting rid of Obama now, it’s not just voting against the other guy, here is somebody with ideas you can actually positively support who obviously knows what’s going on in the economy, the lone voice of warning that told us what would happen, and for thirty years never wavered from consistent positions and never compromised his vote. Finally. Maybe they’ll do a movie somebody, “Incorruptible”. My Dad told me never to say never, but thirty years is a pretty long time for a politician.

No demagoguery. No shilling for corporate cronyism. He doesn’t cover up for the Fed, just blows off their cover. No isolationist.

With grassroots supporters doing unpaid enthusiastic groundwork for him, and explaining directly to voters, ever more people support him. As it becomes OBVIOUS that they cannot stop the message of radical freedom, more people gather round.

Now, he is much more than just “electable”. Representing his ideas that Americans have always loved, he is much more than the one who can do best against Obama. For the first time, people of all kinds and from all professions and lifestyles are joining in realizing that here is a candidate they can support.

Because for a change, he is not just “the least bad”.

He is not just somebody who is “better than the other guy”.

Finally, here is somebody who you can enthusiastically support. Somebody that the crony capitalists are actually afraid of, the ones who laugh in private meetings about left-leaning candidates who say they are going to stick it to them. Both crony capitalists and phony Robin Hoods.

Even Rush Limbaugh is even nervous. That’s the guy who said he was even almost relieved that Obama was elected because he didn’t “have to carry the Republicans’ water anymore”.

Rush lied, I’m sure of it, when I heard him say that Ron Paul is the only one who cannot beat Obama. Because if he’s been paying attention to anything on the subject, if he’s been keeping himself updated on it, if he knows anything at all about what he’s talking about, he knows that Ron Paul is the one with the BEST numbers, the BEST indications, in a matchup against Obama.

In fact, he’s probably the ONLY one, because the Republicans are acting like they believe this stuff oozing out of rotting media about them all having a poor chance against Obama. They aren’t even using their best openings. Americans STILL HATE socialized medicine. They STILL HATE the raid on the Treasury.

Except the thing that raises Americans’ hackles the most, is the giveaway of trillions of dollars given away to prop up European banks, both private banks and the private cartels they call “central banks”. Trillions for corporations, for Wall Street.

The other Republican candidates are getting millions for their campaigns from big banks. But Ron Paul has forced them to TALK about the Fed and housing bubbles and Fannie Mae (keep sweating Gingrich) and socialized medicine’s attack on health (keep sweating, Romney)!

The message is clear.

Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate we can trust to avoid these endless wars.

He is the ONLY candidate to REFUSE to go to war without a constitutional declaration.

He is the ONLY candidate we can trust to immediately strengthen national defense, by bringing home the troops from the 130 countries where they are scattered around the world, and put them on our soil where they can actually defend against any threat, and concentrate on strengthening them instead of this thinning them out. Oh yeah, borders? Yeah, on the borders.

And he won’t sell guns to violent criminal gangs like the guys in Obama’s ATF that were promoted after they were exposed. Now that’s bold-faced. In my opinion, the only reason they were promoted would be because they were following boss’s orders. It’s a one way to keep whistleblowers quiet, I suppose.

And he will do all possible to stop the endless printing of money, now done by just entering numbers in computer screens.

End crony capitalism.

End the Fed. Restore real money.

That will restore the economy quicker than anything. Sure, government is limited if it can’t print money, how’s that working out for ya?

Against abortion? He proposed a CONSTITUTIONAL method to in effect “repeal” Roe v Wade without needing a constitutional amendment, and he was appalled (me too) at the way the Right-to-Life organizations ignored it, and did not push it. Instead they got the Christian audience all giddy about Bush saying he was kind of in favor of a constitutional amendment. Give it a break!

But lots of abortion supporters are in favor of him. Remember too that opposition to abortion has penetrated among atheists too.

And gays support him in great numbers too, although is openly a Bible-believing Christian. The reason is, he is for the same freedom as Christ is. Remember the “adulterous woman”? Jesus told her “Neither do I condemn thee. Go and sin no more”.

Most preachers miss the big point there. It’s “Neither do I condemn thee”. He did not join the rock-throwers. We are all sinners. Ron Paul should mention that story of the adulterous woman. We need to stop throwing stones, start telling sinners Jesus loves them, he does not condemn them, we will not send out big guns and laws against them, so that way they might actually listen when we admit we’ve sinned too, we drop the stones and say “Go and sin no more”.

A good number of the links below show that now they are getting scared that Ron Paul might actually win the nomination AND THE PRESIDENCY, so the conservative talk show hosts are unleashing both barrels with the only thing they THINK they can get him on with voters that want to stop runaway rogue government, what they call “national defense”.

Now on national defense, keep in mind that the guys that are on the battlefield, who actually put their own lives on the line for “national defense”, our men in uniform, the ones who know our international enemies better than anybody, they have said with the loud voice of their own money and their own numbers that Ron Paul is their man. He beats out all the other candidates including Obama in numbers and total amount of donations from active military.

Instead of spreading them out so thin all around the world in 130 countries, he would bring them home. Why should we spend money on bases where they are not needed and no longer needed, especially Europe and the Middle East.

They would be HERE and ON OUR BORDERS protecting national defense, instead of scattered, and the budget for those bases would be spent HERE where we NEED it instead of “over there”. Michael Savage’s rants about “borders language and culture” would even be buttressed. Protecting the border, especially on our southern border now with a major cartel war going on just south of it, is the best national defense possible.

That, and the fact that an economy that is about to collapse in the most dramatic fashion cannot continue to sustain this military infrastructure around the world. We can’t afford it. A weak economy cannot support submarine building, space defense.

“Major Media” Esposed by Ron Paul

November 18, 2011

Looks almost like they WANT to make it obvious they are monolithic, homogenous, and are all playing the same game for somebody, and want to suppress this anti-Establishment message of freedom from an honest maverick:

Palin sticks up for Ron Paul about media black out (Daily Show video)-

Ron Paul nearly tied for #1, surging in Iowa poll, as people hear his message

November 18, 2011

Ron Paul‘s poll numbers are surging as people discover what his message really is:

He’s within the 5-point margin of error for a tie with Herman Cain for first place in Iowa, according this new Iowa State University/Gazette/K

What this means is that when people get a chance to actually hear Ron Paul explain his positions, without the media filters, they respond to this message. Many realize he is speaking the same things they’ve been thinking all along, with others it’s like something they were thinking but now it’s like they have permission to think differently than they’ve been told and it resonates. Still others realize that his message of freedom makes sense.

And best of all for many, his record speaks louder than his words, or gives a perfect echo to his words. Here finally is a man we can trust based on his record to actually do what he says he’s going to do. He votes exactly as he says he will, with no turning and is considered the most honest man in Congress. If a bill is unconstitutional, he has sometimes been the lone single vote against it.

People know he’s not out there playing with his words to get votes like you sense with a lot of the other candidates. With him, it’s what you see is what you get.

Black Republican Presidential Candidate: Twice as Dark as The Democrat Party Candidate

November 5, 2011

Ann Coulter‘s views are generally out of favor in my yard because of her unthinking retorts to Ron Paul and insisting on Chris Christie as presidential candidate —not as strong in good things as his public persona would lead one to thing.

Internet Censorship: SOPA: Hollywood Finally Gets A Chance to Break the Internet « Censorship in America:

November 1, 2011

Internet Censorship: SOPA: Hollywood Finally Gets A Chance to Break the Internet « Censorship in America:

One of the Framers of the US Constitution –was it Thomas Jefferson?– said the tendency of government is to grow. People with a little bit of power tend to use all the power they got, and even the ones with good intentions see more good things they can do so they push for more power to that.

But it’s a death of a thousand cuts to freedom, because every time any government gets a little more power over the lives of its citizens, the citizens become more like its subjects instead of its sovereign as it should be. No matter the illusion of the slow incremental changes either; by the time most of the people realize what’s going on, it’s too late.

Besides some people prefer political and technical “experts” to do their thinking for them. That’s why they –we– don’t act up enough when attacks on liberty are underway.

The new battleground is the Internet. Before this new two-way medium came available, the top-down control over media by the military-industrial government-media complex was a pretty heavy grip, with talk radio of all stripes providing a spot of relief from the monotony of listening to the one-voice big-government political fodder we were supposed to buy into.

But when private industry got hold of the Internet and it came widely available, individuals that thought they were alone in their thinking began to find each other.

One result is that all of a sudden, many of us found that there were some voices all along that spoke the things we were already thinking and sometimes telling our friends and neighbors. Some of those things were spoken among groups with ugly ideas, but some were refreshing views on the world.

Ron Paul said he was genuinely surprised by the upswelling of great numbers of supporters that made him a credible candidate in 2008, despite the attempts by Big Corporate Media to ignore him.

And by 2011, they can no longer ignore him. They still try to ignore him all they can, they try to crimp his message, but it’s looking like in this case they cannot find one piece of dirt on him, because they would have uncovered it a long time ago. They’re in a bit of a quandary, I think, with him, because they’re running out of ways to stop him. Their only chance is to convince people that that he might not beat Obama, and Americans are so repulsed by the idea of more Obama that they may go with Herman Cain as the best hope for stopping the Obama administration‘s ongoing attack on America’s freedoms, who will only continue the failures of the same checkered-pants Republicans that are entrenched as the party bosses already.
