“I'm voting for Rocky Anderson in the general election, but I'm definitely voting for Ron Paul in the primary and sincerely hope that he wins the GOP nomination. It would be invigorating for this country to have an actual choice in the election.”

“Really like Rocky! I'm for anyone that shakes up the status quo.”
“Under Obama's new NDAA he is legally allowed to come into your house, arrest you, imprison you, and torture you, for as long as he sees fit and without providing justification for it. And without your Constitutionally protected right to due process. Are those the civil liberties I get for supporting Obama?”

“No, those are the civil liberties you get for supporting Obama in 2008, but electing Republicans in 2010. For it is the Republicans in Congress who insisted that clause be in the bill. President Obama did NOT want it. That is WHY he threatened to veto it earlier.”
“I'll take Ron Paul's baggage over Obama's baggage, thank you very much. An end to incessant war-mongering, fear-mongering, the military-industrial complex, corporate welfare, the war on drugs, and torture. That's worth it to me.”

“Please do not forget the trampling of our civil liberties (if any still exist).”
“Good post. Definitely disillusioned to see this show taken off while they renewed the awful Enlightened. I don't know if I'll be cancelling HBO yet like the commenter below, but I'm definitely running our of reasons at the moment.”
“Very well said. Paul is the only candidate from EITHER party that wants all the troops home and for the US to stop bombing a half-dozen countries. And that's not a "fringe" position amongst the actual American population. Good luck getting the corporate media to inform people of this fact.”
“I'm sick of people saying that he is caving. It's not "caving" when you do something that you want to do. He is serving his corporate overlords, same as all Democrats and Republicans do (with very few exceptions e.g. Sanders).
The only real change will come about when people stop voting for the two corporate parties.”

“He's "focusing like a laser beam" on the economy.
UNLIKE Boehner & Co. who have broken their promise to do that.”
“"One flaw in Stewart's argument last night was that he presented the whoops and cheers for Paul during last Thursday's debate as evidence of a larger influence. He should have known that this was just evidence that Paul's throngs know how to pack a room and make themselves heard."
Really? Polls have consistently shown that a majority of Americans want OUT of the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars. Why wouldn't Paul's comments highlighting the fact that he is the only anti-war candidate in the race be "evidence of a larger influence"?”

“I read that line as a bit of sarcasm sort of dismissing the notion that Paul only got this far because of his die-hard supporters who can cheer, hoot, and holler.”

“Its kind of hard for a candidate to gain in the polls when the media marginalizes the candidate from the outset. Loook what happens to Kucinich. Even if there is backing, the invitation to debates doesn't come, but the ridicule does.
I'm so tired of the country becoming nothing more than a corporate controlled resource for executive bonuses that I would think about voting for anybody who restored sovreignity to the people.”
The complete ownership of our government, and therefore our country, by Wall Street and the multi-national corporations should be the front page headlining story every single day. Sadly it's hardly even talked about anymore in the media ..... that are owned by those same organizations. Hmm, that's odd!”
