Are any of them aware that Ron Paul is already well into second-tier position (far from the “long shot” he was judged as at the campaign’s beginnings). He’s doing well in the various straw polls and has the largest internet following of any candidate.
The person that made that URL said some smut about the Paul campaign being fundamentally “different” so it just doesn’t “fit”. It wasn’t convincing.
I wanted to let you know that it is you my young gun neocon know it alls that
are the hypocrisy of the GOP that folks like me built when we voted for Reagan
for President. I imagine many of you were still sucking your thumbs when
Ronald Reagan was elected President. What has me riled, you may be asking
yourself? Well, I am writing to let you know that you should be ashamed to
leave Dr. Ron Paul off of your Presidential Poll! You see it is Dr. Ron Paul
who led the Texas delegation in the 1970s for Ronald Reagan the first time he
ran and was defeated. It is Dr. Ron Paul who helped to energize the Goldwater
era into the Reagan revolution that later took the United States by storm.
You do not know the definition of a conservative, and you are destroying the
GOP! You see, it is the baby boomers like me who made the party what it is,
and it is the baby boomers like me who throw the requests for donations from
organized GOP groups in file number 13. I am a Ron Paul supporter, and I am
ashamed that you have left the most conservative man in Washington DC off your
poll.. But beware because your actions may just come back to bite you in your
collective rear ends.
The more Big Govt RINOs and globalist Neocons purge bonafide limited govt Conservatives from the GOP, the more they ensure 8 years of Prez Billary. To trash the Ron Paul campaign is to follow Dudya off the cliff.
The RINOS and the neocons in the GOP can not stand the heat of the truth of Ron Paul’s message of limited constitutional federal government, sound money, and nonintervention. Any who do honest research will find Dr. No to be, as Jon Stuart said, a consistently principled stateman. Close the unconstitutional federal reserve with it’s private bankers, end the IRS, stop anchor baby abuse of the 14th Amendment, and abolish the Dept of Educaton so we can reclaim our republic and the next generation of free thinkers.
Make sure that you check you mail guard, because this guy has a spam filter on his email. You have to verify your email address by typing in a some letters. The letters that I had to type in were “crabby.” LOL
Well, I’d be more worried about Ron Paul being left off the “GOP Straw Poll” this if this were actually the GOP’s website instead of, like, three guys who can’t even come up with enough original ideas for their own blogs.
I just emailed them also to let them know that I have been a conservative republican for 30 years. I have not witnessed such disregard for fellow GOP supporters in my lifetime. These very type of people are really the END of the GOP as many of us have known it to be in previous years. It is by their own hands that never again will I donate one more penny to this communistic party regime formerly known as the Grand old party. These idgets even have the other Thompson on their skewed poll and he hasn’t even thrown his dirty little GOP hat into the ring to date. The more they display their Fascist behavior, the more I speak to people about Ron Paul. May God truly Bless Ron Pauls presidential bid in 2008. The name of the heinous site should be called “Neo-Fascists Bloggers’.
Posted this on GOPBloggers.org (waiting to see if it gets posted):
It’s a shame that you chose to remove Ron Paul’s name from the poll because you believe that there MAY have been spamming. If you have PROOF, you should present it and those responsible should be held accountable. All polls are subject to spamming, but it was my understanding that there were ways to deter this.
All you have done by not including his name as a choice is to either force his supporters to not vote at all, vote against everyone else and for no one, or pick their second choice as their first choice. In my opinion, this makes the poll itself even more unscientific and much less meaningful.
If you look at the data, it shows:
of those saying they are the most conservative (10), the plurality of 31.5% voted for “none” as their first choice
of those saying they were confident of whom they would vote for (5), the plurality of 33.2% chose “none”
Don’t these two pluralities at least suggest that Ron Paul supporters see him as the ONLY choice in the field?
Wouldn’t that explain the mystery of why they marked all others as “unacceptable”? Isn’t it likely that TRUE conservative voters want a TRULY conservative candidate, and won’t accept anyone else? Can’t anyone accept the fact that TRUE conservatives are tired of settling for the “lesser of two evils”? Doesn’t that explain why this is “a voting behavior not mimicked by supporters of other candidates”? TRUE conservatives don’t stick their finger in the air to determine who is the most popular at the moment. TRUE conservatives vote on principles.
When will Republicans stop listening to the Democrats and MSM and realize that they didn’t lose in ’06 just because of the war? They lost because the Republicans turned away from the conservative values they claimed to have, and ignored the Constitution.
TRUE conservatives, Republican or otherwise, did not settle for the “lesser of two evils” then, and WE WILL NOT IN ’08! We may or may not be able to stop this Republic from its downward slide into socialism, but it should not be aided by any TRUE conservative.
RNC, give us a TRULY conservative candidate to vote for or suffer the consequences.
For those of you who think that Ron Paul is “way out there” and that the CFR is just a “good ol’ boys’ club”, you can take comfort in knowing
that the SPP and NACC are busily working on opening the borders even wider
that in just days, Mexican trucks will be freely traveling anywhere in the United States
that President Calderon said recently that “Mexico doesn’t stop at the border”.
For those of you who think I’m “way out there”, we’ll have to wait and see. For those of you who don’t even know what I’m talking about, shame on you for even voting!
