    I think most the RP supporters here agree that the strategy has been implemented to perfection

    why is this not appropriate?

    If delegates are being incorrectly reported shouldn't that be something that people get upset about?

    Americans aren't suppose to get upset about stuff like that. Just vote Romney or Obama and be happy about it, dammit!

    oh, sorry I misunderstood. I personally feel that the best candidate should be anti-war, pro-sound currency, and he doesn't go back on his word all while keeping the liberties of Americans the first priority. So out of Obama and Romney who best fits my priorities?

    Just assure me, there aren't people claiming to be intelligent, and also claiming you can waste a vote ITT are there? Surely not. Only idiots think you can waste a vote.

    sadly, we actually still have people who get it not voting at all out of defiance to the current system.

    If there is voter fraud people should get upset. If it changes that the projections are off and RP gets more delegates nobody gives a shit because it doesn't change anything. Romney is the nominee, nobody cares how many delegates RP or anybody else receives, the primaries are over

  8. Can you imagine what would happen if people thought the election system in this country was corrupt or had pervasive fraud? lol nothing.

    Shut up and vote for Obama since he's the only one with a chance to win.

    You are honestly just becoming a big troll in this thread

    we get it, you don't like RP. I don't think anyone in this thread including myself thinks RP is going to win the nomination...we just like the message and we love how his grassroots supporters are beating the system at it's own game to win delegates and take over multiple state parties.

    Even when we know the system is corrupt there isn't really much we can do about it.

    so because it doesn't change anything we shouldn't even vocalize that something wrong is happening?

    That isn't true, I like Ron Paul. I hope he does have a speech at the convention

    Just saying watching the delegate updates of an election that is over is entertaining (I am far from alone in this view). And obviously the media isn't going to give it much attention, only like 1% of the population cares. Romney won

    To be fair, only about 2% of the American public cares, or knows squat about any of the three candidates.

  17. actually Fox just talked about today, specifically about how RP now has a plurality of delegates in at least 5 states and will be on the nomination ballet. still confused as to what that means, but it sounds good at least.

    and in terms of entertainment, i think the networks will start going more full steam with this, as they will have a lot more reporting and sound bytes to come out of this, if a lot of the states are falling the way these ones so far have.

    It means Ron Paul won 5 states, which is necessary to be eligible for nomination at the RNC in Tampa.

  21. LOL - i watched the "debate" and didn't think it was worth commenting on. If this paragraph quoted from Krugman in your article is an admitting to losing the debate, i don't know what to tell you.

    "Think about it: you approach what is, in the end, a somewhat technical subject in a format in which no data can be presented, in which there’s no opportunity to check facts (everything Paul said about growth after World War II was wrong, but who will ever call him on it?). So people react based on their prejudices. If Ron Paul got on TV and said “Gah gah goo goo debasement! theft!” — which is a rough summary of what he actually did say — his supporters would say that he won the debate hands down; I don’t think my supporters are quite the same, but opinions may differ."

    (their emphasis in bold, not mine).

  22. Well just from body language and their tone of confidence behind their arguments I would say RP won. Krugman came across as weak.

    I know this..what weve been doing over the past so many years isnt really working anymore. This is basically what Krugman wants to do. He just wants the fed to print money and its hard for me to side with someone who actually wants inflation. How the fuck can inflation be good at all??

    RP also clears up his stance on the Federal Reserve very well. He does not want to end the Fed just open up competition. This part of the debate was important for me as I tend to not know as much about RPs economic policy as I do his personal liberty views.

    Cant believe so many people write off RP. We are a nation of sheeple.

  23. The 'debate' isn't worth commenting on, tbh.

    And that article is mostly garbage.
    Add jesterwords to Rail
  24. i mean come on ... shirley you can't be serious. One of the highlights from the "debate" was Ron Paul complaining that the Fed is filled with a bunch of those smart college educated economists who do nothing but study and write books, and teach and other useless stuff. All those smart guys are ruining the country!!

  29. lol sorry man

    they are both american professors that think they can consistently and correctly predict human behavior too

    can you imagine what would happen if someone actually could do this? they could be trillionaires and world dictators. One of the dudes (Sims?) wrote a model that does exactly this. I bet he's wrong, any takers?

    they actually did say Keynesian is a simplistic theory that is outdated, that made me happy, but they also want to take central planning to new heights because THEY KNOW how to manipulate the economy, that made me sad.

  30. i'm all in favor of educated responses to any issue including economics - and like most things, our model evolves as we gather more information and adjust. Whether you support Keynes or others, it's a healthy debate when facts are presented, data is analyzed solutions are proposed, and so forth. I just find it ridiculous coming from someone like Ron Paul (who i actually like) to basically say all those smart economics guys running the Fed don't know what they're doing.
