Ralph Nader: America Needs Ron Paul Enema

Ralph Nader comes out and eloquently expresses why we need Ron Paul in the white house. Some people rightfully are afraid of his minimalist leanings, but I've always tried to explain that we just need 4 years of a strict constitutionalist to purge the shit from the system. Ron Paul is the only one that can right the ship. And when you have someone like Nader that's very big on government regulation saying the same thing, you've gotta take notice.

Quote From Nader's Blog:

He won’t admit it, but Ron Paul is practically running on my third-party ticket. And while I don’t agree with him on every point. I was impressed that he raised four million dollars in one day. Unless my campaign starts showing some signs of life, I might just vote for him next November.

Sure, I don’t particularly agree with his immigration policy of state-run militia’s running around on the southern border, shooting at anything that speaks Spanish. Nor do I sleep well at night thinking about his proposed dissolution of my precious EPA and Consumer Product Safety Commission. However, I think we can all agree that Washington is like the inflamed colon after 20 years without even a flake of Raisin Bran. What it needs is a Ron Paul enema — let’s let it run through the system, clean everything out — You wouldn’t get an enema every day — but we need one right now.

Tea Party 07

All the Ron Paul supporters should sign up here to make a pledge to donate to his campaign on the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Another one like last time, and he can be the frontrunner in funds raised for this quarter. I've pledged, will you?

Best New Ron Paul Video

When was the last time you saw something this inspirational from a political candidate? I almost cried.


Kucinich is Cool Too

I know I prattle on and on about Ron Paul, because I think most of the US' problems are caused by an overreaching federal government, but I understand many people still want a big federal government without some warmonger at the helm.

So I'm going to promote Kucinich a little here too. If Ron Paul didn't exist I'd be voting for this guy. He and Mike Gravel are the only Democrats planning to get us out of Iraq within the next 5 years, and who voted against funding the war. Obama and Hillary may talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk. They fund the war at every opportunity, and have denied that they would pull out of Iraq within 5 years.

Watch a good video of Kucinich with an intelligent interviewer. It's amazing to see him talk for 20 minutes instead of the usual 2 seconds he gets in debates. This is one guy with his head screwed on straight.


Ron Paul is a First Tier Candidate, Only Fools Continue to Say Otherwise

A few excerpts:

Straw Polls: Ron Paul has come in the top 3 in almost every single straw poll. He has also won most of them.

Ron Paul support is not actually measured by the Gallop polls. They only measure past primary voters(those people who were registered Republicans and voted in 2000)…but only about 25% of Ron Paul supporters voted in the 2000 Republican primary…that means that Ron Paul’s numbers are not 4%, but actually close to 16%

..a grassroots network that dwarfs the competition(47,831 members + 5,487 interested, growing at 6% per week)…compared to less than a 200 for the 2nd place, and 0 for Rudy

Ron Paul will raise the $500,000 in about 3 days, 14 hours…giving him plenty of time to raise $1,000,000 in 1 week. These are HARDLY 2nd tier numbers.

Why Kucinich, Gravel and Paul Are So Far Down in the Polls

This explains a lot


My New Hampshire phone rings (caller ID 000-000-0000 WTF?)and I pick it up out of curiosity. "This is (talking like a magpie so I haven't got a clue what the name of the company is)Research. Would you like to be part of a poll for the Democratic presidential primary candidate?" I agree and the woman rapidly reads the list of candidates. "Clinton, Obama, Edwards, Dodd, Biden and Richardson." I say, "Kucinich." The woman on the phone says "Who?" I say, "Kucinich. Dennis Kucinich." I hear coaching in the background - apparently the call is being monitored. "I'm sorry, but Dennis Kucinich is not on our list. Is there anyone on the list I gave you who you would vote for?"

So there you have it. Kucinich is down in the polls because he isn't included in the polls . . . and you can forget about Gravel, too.
