The good doctor Paul came in second place to Romney in Washington’s caucus with 25 % of the vote. Ron Paul might’ve even collected the most delegates out of WA when it all resolves. This is a good day for liberty, a second place showing the real alternative to three big government, big spending moderate candidates. Let’s hope Paul can gain a little momentum heading into Super tuesday, anything can happen!
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum recently dropped some prophecies for us. ( He actually said this, look it up)
“Satan has his sights on the United States of America!” Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has declared.
“Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so deeply rooted in the American tradition.” – Rick Santorum
Thanks for that one Rick, we’re scared shitless.
We do not know what Rick’s been smoking, we have to find out… Cause that sh*t is blazing!
Des Moines Register poll from Iowa on presidential candidates show Ron Paul beating Obama with 49 % to 42 %.
Also: An Ohio poll from FOX NEWS shows RP beating Obama with 42 to 41.
“If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.” – Ronald Reagan
“Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” – George Washington
“There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.” – Robert Heinlein
“The most fundamental purpose of government is defense, not empire.” – Joseph Sobran
“The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.” – Milton Friedman
“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams
“There is only one kind of freedom and that’s individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it.” – Ron Paul
“I don’t want us to worry about the borders between North and South Korea and between Iraq and Syria, I want to worry about our own border.” – Ron Paul
Dr. Paul came at second place in the Maine caucus straw-poll, at 36 % only 200 votes short of Romney’s 39 %. It is definitely a very frustrating day for all liberty supporters who anticipated a Paul victory today, but lets not forget that our votes more than doubled since 2008. And one more thing: lets not forget we most definitly walked away with the most delegates.
Do not trust the media projections of the candidate’s delegates, since they are totally delussional and based on percentage numbers, while the real process is much more detailed and complicated. It involves the need for heavy grassroots support and enthusiasm, and we all know RP fans top that category.
Ron Paul is winning the race for delegates thus far!
You have all probably heard about Santorum’s winning streak this week. Well guess what, those wins did not count! Rick won the straw polls in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri, but those are just beauty-contest numbers. I.e not a single delegate was handed in Missouri and the other two states were just in the first step of the selecting delegates-process.
The awesome news:
Ron Paul , thanks to his amazing, motivated supporters did very well this week. Paul supporters are organized and are doing a great job of gaining delegates. When the delegate count is decided, we may have come first or at least second in delegates in all three states.
Here’s an example
In one precinct in Larimer County, the straw poll vote was 23 for Santorum, 13 for Paul, 5 for Romney, 2 for Gingrich. There were 13 delegate slots, and Ron Paul got ALL 13.
In a very recent poll from Reuters, Paul came in second to Romney. Paul at 21 %, Mitt at 28 %. The best part is, Romney has dropped heavily since the latest national polls while Paul has gained 5 %. We are seeing a steady and permanent increase of support for dr. Paul.
On to some other great news:
Ron Paul has very good chances of winning in Maine this weekend. The organization of hard-working supporters are doing a great job and when looking at the total votes counted from the early caucus counties thus far, Ron Paul is leading!
This race is wide open. What we need now is a win in Maine to gain momentum, we need some kickass debating from Paul in the upcoming debates and we need all supporters to keep doing a great job. For now, we have good reasons to be optimistic.
