Iowa Won!

In Saturday's straw poll in Iowa, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas was voted into a statistical tie for first place with Michelle Bachman.  The purpose of this poll is to figure out who the potential nominee for the Republican presidential candidate may be.   This is an absolutely astounding victory in Iowa for the most anti-war, pro-civil liberty, strait principled politician of all time. 
In spite of Paul's result, the two big stories are Bachman's (an Iowan) win and the seething simp Pawlenty dropping out.  Almost no mention of Pauls tie for first.  Several sources who traditionally may not agree with Ron Paul have picked up on this and come to the defense of the Congressman, like Politico, and the Huffington Post.

And this little gem put together from CNN clips does a fair job at pointing out the confusing mass ignoring of Ron Paul

I would like to know what it is about Ron Paul that causes the media as a whole to ignore his campaign and victories like the one in Iowa this past Saturday.  Is it his consistent and clear anti-war message of a non-interventionist foreign policy?  Is it his encyclopedic knowledge of the federal reserve and Americas fiat currency that makes him a terrible threat? 

If you have read any of my previous posts, you will get that I am no conspiracy theorist, but hot damn, whats going on?  It seems like maybe I should make myself a tinfoil hat, because something just aint right. 

Ron Pauls going to be in Concord NH this Wednesday, the 17th.  Come see him and help him open his New Hampshire Campaign office in style. 


  1. Maybe it's because the markets don't see it happening.

  2. The markets? The unfortunately ultra-regulated online gambling market? That market can't see cause its wearing government issue drunk glasses. Its not really a market. Are corn prices really market drivin? Try running a chainsaw with ethanol infused gasoline for a spell. That aint no market at work.
