    I would rather lose seeking the truth than to win believing a lie. With that said, the main stream media needs to realize you can only cover a lie with a lie. Truth cannot cover a lie but only expose it. Consider this the year of your exposure.

    So sit back and continue your lies while watching the truth PREVAIL.

    MD has been blue for so long, even the Republicans don’t know what a Constitution-based conservative is. Romney? Perry? Gimme a break!!

    Many of us in MD need to change our party in MD to republican so that we can vote. Many libertarians, independents and even some democrats must register as a republican in Maryland to vote in the primary as a republican. I just sent my change in from libertarian to republican (temporarily) and so are/have many of my family members, so it is likely that the real voting numbers could be even better.

    Ron also came within three votes of beating out Herman Cain in a Georgia Straw poll. If he’s dominating in all these straw polls, that means the popular vote is his. This emphasizes the mainstream media’s shameless propaganda. The people will not be ignored!

  • John Fowler

    Even if the results are accurate, its not a bad showing at all in a state where Ron Paul has not historically done that well (4th place in ’08). So they cannot say that this is a state that is more receptive to someone radical or has a lot of “Paulites” or whatever. This proves that Ron Paul is every bit the frontrunner we have been hoping. Bachmann is finished, and the Palin hold-outs will come to RP, I believe. This is the year for Ron Paul!!!

    Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln Fought Against the Idea of a Central Bank. JFK passed a bill issuing Silver Certificates & was assassinated 5 months later, the bill was rescinded immediately upon his assassination by Lyndon Johnson. Ronald Reagan talked about the Federal Reserve being Corrupt but made no efforts to stop it.

    “No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.”
