    I agree. I actually grew up in Ct, where you do register for a party (even Indy). I know when I worked elections (as a kid) we would use the rosters of voters (per party) to phone-up, make sure they voted, or arrange rides to the polls. But, when I was 17, I moved here for college, and when I registered, it was as a person, not a party.
    I double checked this on three sites the other day (since my voter-card has no indication of R, D, or I) & was right-I vote in whatever primary I wish.

    Can we get some more protection on Dr. Paul please? You know if he gets that close to winning it all they will take him out like the Kennedy’s. Let’s all protect the hell out of this man.

      I agree. I am starting to worry. Too many vested interests in big government and then there are the psycho loners like Mark David Chapman who target beloved celebrities.

    The media has tried to stop Ron Paul from reaching the masses. We have proven that we can circumvent mainstream media and spread the message ourselves. We will not be stopped. We will be heard. Ron Paul 2012.

    only thing that worries me is that 2008 he was winning polls as well…he’s grown even more not, but we just need to keep spreading the message outside of the web (I think) .. Ron Paul supporters are just so much more passionate than any candidate than I’ve seen in such a long time (even Obama)

    How the hell did Rick Perry get 29% in California? I live there and I don’t see these people any where. And this “Ron Paul!” cheering is disturbing. I hope I’m never that into a political party. What if he lies like all other politicians before him, or there’s something else going on here? Are we not repeating history yet again? I hope he wins, but I don’t like his stance on health insurance.

      Well I have relatives who want cradle to grave security, regarding insurance. Would you start an insurance company if you were forced at gunpoint to insure those with pre-existing conditions? I would not. And I am getting medication for hypothyroidism and blood pressure. But I planned ahead for health problems by exercising regularly, avoiding obesity, and above all, putting health over career and relationships. I can afford to pay for my health care as a result of planning for older age.
