Update: January 5, 2012: Out of the 57 straw polls this year, Ron Paul has won 23 of them (40%), followed by Herman Cain, 17 (29%), Romney, 4 (7%) with Bachmann, Perry and Santorum tied for last amongst the current GOP contenders with 2 (3%).
November 11, 2011 (WASHINGTON, DC) - Through November 5th, 2011 Dr. Ron Paul has won more straw polls than any other GOP candidate. Additionally, Dr. Paul has won more straw polls than Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Michelle Bachman combined.
While the mainstream media was trying to sell the public the “Top Tier” contenders of Romney, Perry and Bachman, Herman Cain made a leap out of nowhere to become a contender.
With Cain’s recent sexual harassment scandals bordering on sexual assault, it appears that Ron Paul should run away with the rest of the straw polls as the people have voiced their opinion.
Rick Perry mental breakdown and incompetency of the issues further reduces the field of competition:
Unfortunately, the main stream media still continues to ignore Dr. Paul.
In a recent survey on the Bill O’Reilley show, Ron Paul crushed the competition, but O’Reilly, in a typical manner only FOX “News” can pull off, disqualified Ron Paul because Ron Paul supporters flooded the polls.
FOX implemented tracking cookies where you coud only vote once for any nominee, yet O'Reilley still disqualified Dr. Paul, despite Dr. Paul winning mroe straw polls than any of the competition.
First off, it’s obvious that Ron Paul is the main contender for the GOP, so it would stand to reason that FOX would receive a plethora of votes for Dr. Paul. Secondly, many Ron Paul supporters view FOX the same way Canada does. FOX News is not allowed in Canada due to a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.
While it is possible that some Canadians can receive FOX news, this is verified many times. On a Google search - banned Canada "fox news" – returns almost 48 million results. It’s too bad lying on broadcast news is not prohibited in the United States as well.
As this link will attest, the main stream media (MSM) is owned by 6 corporations whose lobbyists finance the campaigns of presidential contenders, such as Rick Perry receiving a financial pledge from Bank of America:.
Let us not forget Perry's ties to the Bilderbergs, who are a private group of globalists who discusses world policy and includes some of the world's most prominent politicians, bankers, businessmen, and media personalities.
When you research who owns the main stream media and what their agenda is, it becomes blatantly obvious why the MSM fears Dr. Paul.
Why are people jumping on the Ron Paul bandwagon?
When President Obama was elected, he ran of the slogan of “hope and change”. As we have seen in Obama’s first three years, there is very little hope and no change from the previous president, George Bush. Obama has run the same platform as Bush by continuing the Patriot Act, starting illegal wars that were not voted on by Congress and bailing out Wall Street while catering to the lobbyists who placed him in office.
In some ways, it’s good that Obama was elected because he is showing the world that it doesn’t matter if you are black or white, republican or democrat, the president will cater to corporations and lobbyists while ignoring our constitutional rights.
Of the "top tier" contenders, Ron Paul is the only candidate who opposes the Patriot Act which has systematically taken away our civil liberties through programs such as Homeland Security, FEMA and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as well as eliminating proper search procedures while arresting people who are deemed suspicious without allowing any legal representation.
This is what separates Ron Paul from the “pretender contenders”.
There is a reason why Dr. Paul receives more money from active military troops than all of the other GOP candidates combined: because he’s the only one who will bring them home immediately and the American public agrees with this sentiment.
The only people who benefit from war are those who make money off of it. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us about the military industrial complex on his farewell speech from office:
Ron Paul’s voting record is pristine. If you were to look at his voting record in Congress, he consistently stands up for our constitutional rights, even if it goes against his own Republican party’s views, such as voting against fellow Republican George Bush’s Patriot Act.
If being “unelectable” means standing up for our constitutional rights, then Dr. Paul has already received many more “unelectable” votes from the straw poll’s court of public opinion than most of his competition, combined.
