Ron Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll
    #368863 - 02/20/10 07:03 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Holy fucking shit! 

Ron Paul wins early conservative poll

The Washtington Post

The Associated Press
Saturday, February 20, 2010; 6:33 PM

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Ron Paul won the most support for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination in an unofficial straw poll of conservative activists attending an annual conference.

A libertarian from Texas who has railed against spending and the Federal Reserve, Paul won the Saturday contest at the Conservative Political Action Conference with 31 percent backing. He has sought the presidential nomination in the past and attracted a following among a segment of voters frustrated with Washington.

Participants cheered as their favored candidates' names were announced. Some members of the audience cheered while others booed loudly when event organizers announced Paul as the winner.

Paul spoke at the conference along with potential presidential candidates former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota. Romney won second with 22 percent, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin came in third with 7 percent and Pawlenty finished with 6 percent.

Fewer than a quarter of the 10,000 attendees participated in the balloting, an unscientific sampling that only offers bragging rights.

Sure.  That's why mainstream news goes so far out of their way to censor his debates.  Fox news didn't even show ron paul in their highlight reel except for maybe a few seconds.  They certainly didn't air any of his responses except during the live debates, when really they had no choice.  But they made sure his name was forgotten because familiarity is important more than any real debate.

There are few well meaning politicians, I'll give you that.  But they're out there.  The problem is the ones that are well meaning are just as powerless as the rest of us.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:
