2. ron is anti- government and an anti-semite
he`s the perfect candidate for the average viewer of fox news. he`s also the only candidate that appeals to the citizens of the ayran nations.

5. That's a serious charge...

Why don't you put your money where your mouth is and present some facts? Btw, I couldn't care less about Ron Paul and have no intention of voting for him, but I also think the label "anti-Semite" gets tossed around way too much-especially at people who criticize Israel, no matter how well deserved that criticism might be.

7. I love the awkward silence of Romney when he realizes he's
second to the guy that just said our foreign policy has been interventionist.

8. i`m going to retract my statement about ron being anti-semitic
i based my statement from the posters i read at stormfront. i should not have used them as a source. i will stand by the statement that the ones who do vote, ron is their candidate of choice. they like us, have no use for the current government and although we both agree on somethings, there is no other common ground.

9. I appreciate your quick reconsideration, Madrchsod. You have stumbled onto something, tho
Ron Paul is unrealistically idealistic and I think a bit naive about how the economy works to think that you can have a successful government that leaves virtually everything to the unregulated private sector. But if his ideas are nuts, they're a genuine and honest nuts rather than the cynical demogoguery of his nine opponents.

In coming across the neo-nazi propaganda where the perpetual outsider/losers of Stormfront reveal their bias for another outsider, I think you've stumbled onto how the Rove clones running Romney, McCain, and Guiliani's campaigns are going to take down Paul. If the skinheads are singing his praise, expect to hear Paul smeared with an alleged assocation with neo-nazis in the next few months.

Ron Paul is not an anti-semite: he's a sincere, idealistic, patriotic man who really thinks he can salvage the Republican party. He's in for a world of pain as he inevitably finds out he can't. He'll probably also pick up a well-funded primary opponent this fall for the spring primary elections who will ruthlessly use these soon-to-be ginned up smears against Paul. He's a loose cannon that the Republican establishment is going to feel like they have to shut down.

13. Correct
Too idealistic and not thoughtful enough for the real-world. He'd be a dangerous, weak President with good intentions. That said, he's the best on that side.

10. So, did Ron Paul win in the end of the poll?
I assume as the evening went on, the Freepers got their acts together and got votes running for the "real" conservatives.
