    the thread title is profoundly misleading...

    who cares who's posting the Pro-Paul YouTube videos? in his campaign or out, the fact is he's the most watched candidate on the net...

    Then we can say your video had 100k hits in 3 hours , so many people watched it , wow cool , awsome ...

    give me a break... so now we're suggesting that Paul's web popularity is merely the act of a few geeks refreshing the page all night? lol...

    The point seems to be: no one really cares.


    Same goes for Kucinich.

    Sorry if that hurts the feelings of those who support these candidates, but the reality is they have gained no substantial public traction. Both are on the fringes of the debate, too far off into conspiracy theories and the like. Again, no offense intended.

    No harm, no foul.
    Which conspiracies are you talking about?

    Also, why do you think it is that they are not heard from? It may be their poll #s (I'll give you Kucinich), but that's not the case for Paul, who is doing better than Thompson, who is indulged for his neo-con jive and his "mainstream" sensibilities

    More than anything, it's a numbers thing. Alan Keyes has not officially retired from the campaign, has he? Yet, he hasn't been seen on TV, invited to debates, etc., for a month. He's got a narrow message, too. If one's message appeals to only a few, they don't get coverage; if no coverage, they don't have a prayer. So to speak.

    So not only does Paul have to have better numbers than Thompson, but he also has to have a mainstream message, one that makes for conventional, conformist agreement among the powers that be. Is that what you're saying? Are you willing to go along with Status Quo forever?I doubt it.

    Ron Paul is a true patriot. He cares about the country and the constitution.

    You cannot be a Patriot fan.

    You HAVE to be a Raider fan... only they are as inept as your views, maam.

    you've just summed up your mission statement... full of offensive sentiment, if unintentional, and highly inaccurate...

    So, all you Paulians, vote for him!!! You can write his name in, you can picket MUR in Manchester (kinda late, though), or how 'bout BZ, et.al., in Boston. Go for it!! Paul will let you grow and smoke all the weed you can force into your body; he'll let people co-habitate with racoons and skunks; he'll let you do ANYTHING YOU WANT because he WILL SEND THE GOVERNMENT HOME!!

    Ron Paul: an ancient hippie with now short gray hair and a suit. Frank Zappa and Jerry Garcia love 'im. Abbie Hoffman does, too!! Far out, man!! "Just leave me alone so I can bliss out, man!!"


    Hey, it's a free country, vote for him if you want!!!

    i'm going to easily guess you're talking to me, smarmily yet directly, with this tripe... considering i'm the only person on this board who has expressed support of Paul openly... and considering the lame grass reference of ridicule you're so fond of slipping in ... after i, once, mentioned i happen to indulge on rare occassion... (as if anyone on earth needs to smoke a joint and relax worse that YOU... lol)

    but, what an inaccurate, grossly exaggerated portrait of the man, and his belief system... how typically you...

    by the way, are you the one who made the PM complaint about me to our conservative moderator regarding the Philip Agee thread? you know, for the 'preecher' comment you admitted you were fine with? i can't imagine any other explanation, so please man-up and admit it openly for the forum to enjoy...

    Why, no, I didn't complain. Can't you read?? I said, "Preacher man? OK, I can live with that." Though you meant it to be derogatory -- nothing new there in your approach; it's what you do -- I am not in the least bit ashamed of saying what God has put in my heart.

    You should know me by now: if you p!ss me off, I put it right back to you. And since you want to talk about "smarmy", no one on this list comes close to you in the "smarmy", nippy, heel-biting, little dog antics that you specialize in. You are "first dog" in that category!!!

    Now, go vote for Mr. Free-for-all-Chaos, Ron Paul. It's YOUR vote. You can even probably vote for Pat Paulson or even good 'ol Gus Hall, if you want. Or Elmer Fudd. LOLOL.

    Whomever doesn't vote for Mr. Paul:

    Is NOT a true patriot...

    Does NOT care about their country...

    and...

    Does NOT want their constitution.

    actually, no i didn't... and that's why i asked the conservative moderator who PMed me about it, otherwise i would have chalked it up to yet another YOU complaint and went about my business....

    because, i was given an infraction point for that thread, and i can't understand what for...

    so now that i've eliminated you, i'll go ahead and assume it was none other than FTW, the only other poster i addressed in that thread, who found my post "insulting" and went ahead and gave me points for it...

    as do i to you... and will continue to... glad we got that out of the way...

    that's humorous deduction... because reality tells anyone who reads here that i bludgeon you right over the head with my message... i certainly don't "nip at heels" as you curiously, conveniently view it...

    smarm is not a word that describes my approach to debating geopolitics, sorry Fog... i'm not sleazy, i'm direct and honest... false earnestness? that would be you; just look at your newest clinton rant to no one...

    Chaos? lol... is that what you take from Ron Paul's ideal for America? he wants chaos? ... based on what? that he wants every American armed with a gun? lol...

    i'll let you get back to your grand plans for western societal subjugation, control and theocracy now...

    Bliss out? WTF does that mean?
    Ron Paul is a Navy Veteran and a medical doctor. Hoffman, Garcia and Zappa are dead. Don't diss my homeboy Abbie. And Zappa was a musical genius who never did drugs.
    God forbid you do whatever you want and have the government out of your business!
    Is there anything in this post that isn't wrong?

    Oh well...I'm off to work for another day to pay for 1/2 of my taxes for this week.

    PC I know I have taken my shots at you on this board, but I do have an honest question for you.

    1. You seem to imply you will/would vote for Paul. I would just like to know how you feel about his economic and social issues. He actually seems more conservative than Bush.

    2. Do you agree we should disband the DOE.

    3. He doesn't seem to buy into global warming/kyoto, do you?

    Oh, it's the "beast" you are looking for!! How's this: look inside YOURSELF!! You've got all you can handle with the stuff that's inside YOU. Chasing after the specks in others' eyes while you ignore the logs in your own eye is pretty "beastly", eh. Yeah, it is.

    .

    Echo chamber: Hey, you all who love Paul!! Vote for him!!!! It's your right. Do what you think is best.

    But, for God's sake, don't ever expect others to follow your lead just because YOU say he's the best thing since whole grain bread!! Paul is a far-out Libertarian who thinks doing drugs and having sex any way anybody wants is just peachy fine. It ain't and it also ain't.
