    At the CPAC convention, winners of the straw poll for Republican POTUS nominee were:

    Ron Paul, 33%
    Romney 22%
    Palin 7%
    Pawlenty 6%

    I'd vote for Ron Paul, but it surprised my that he even got noticed. Now there's a guy who'd kick some azz for us.

    Or he'd at least say he would, much like on his web site how he says he doesn't support earmarks yet has not once stood up for this position by turning one down.

    It IS interesting. I'd never have thought Ron Paul would have beaten Romney. But, there's a few years to formulate a campaign and a few million or so to be spent...

    We need someone much better than him. He does not have what it takes to get elected in the general election.

    Ready or not, we need Ron Paul in the oval office with his name on the desk. You tube Ron Paul and... pick your issue. He'll nail it to the wall with only facts and curt. That's a man.

    Ron Paul For President Of The United States Of America!





    You've got my vote sir.

    I had to write it in, but I voted for him last time. It is a great thing that he won the straw poll, but, as usual, if you look at the newspaper stories, it's all about NWO lackey Mitt Romney - never a peep about Ron Paul. No wonder the MSM are all going bankrupt - they wouldn't recognize the truth about anything important if it jumped up and kicked them in the face...

    Like the last time around with McCain, I am sure that the Liberals would love to see Ron Paul as the candidate. He is no threat to them, since he would never pull the independent vote and the Republicans would lose.

    I like him and what he stands for but I like the agenda of Palin much better. She is not the best speaker, but is a pro-gun candidate that wants to use America's oil resources to get off the middle eastern oil and stop the outflow of equity in the form of the balance of payment deficit!

    Ron Paul's libertarian agenda is very narrow and only appeals to the strict Constitutionalists. They are growing in numbers within the Tea Party movement but I doubt they could be a threat to the Obama thugs in the next election.

    Romney is a great speaker, has lots of experience but for some reason the fact that he is a Mormon seems to scare some folks. He may be the best choice of all, but who knows what will happen between now and 2012.

    I am more concerned about the 2010 Congressional elections myself. I want to see a Congress that can put a stop to this Obama march to Socialism.

    Romney is a Messachusetts RINO. He's a wolf in sheep's' clothing. Look for the MSM to get behind him just as they did McCain, and then dump him after the nomination just as they did McCain, and swoon over a progressive.

    Romney is not a constitutional guy.

    McCain wouldn't seal our borders. He voted for the big spending, always. He has no true principles. He's against waterboarding and for closing Gitmo. I appreciate him as a war hero and thank him for it, but he's a lousy senator.

    We need someone who loves our founding principles and our constitution and our country as founded above all else. That person will have to be elected by a grass roots movement because the progressive MSM will try to trash them. Palin scares the MSM so bad they can't stop trashing her for being "dumb." At least she didn't visit "all 57 states" as Obama said he did, LOL. Imagine if Palin had said that.

    Yep, I agree. When McCain did the McCain/Feingold bill that was it for me. Then he votes in favor of Amnesty. Too darn old and senile, I guess.

    Good information on Romney, I was not aware of some of his positions on Gitmo and spending. Look like Palin has my vote unless someone else comes along who has Reagan principles.

    I don't trust Palin at all. When she agreed to go to Arizona and personally campaign for McCain who has all of those issues, that did it for me. Are these people all part of the same club?

    I think that was a debt that she had to repay. I know she is not a big McCain fan but he choose her and has certainly added to her personal appeal and fortunes.

    But if put into office I believe she would not be influenced by many. She is a very headstrong individual and goes with her gut instincts. Just my personal opinion.

    Another NWO puppet - she's stumpin' for Rick Perry (NWO owned and operated) against Deb Medina in Texas. Kind of let's you know where she really stands... I firmly believe that you don't get on the ticket (either dem or rep) unless the real powers that be approve. You have to either be hopelessly compromised and thus controllable, or fully participating in the NWO agenda. The two major parties are just two heads on the same dirty bird. We get pissed at one party, then vote in the other one - nothing changes, same program no matter which one you put in. It's time for a real change, with people who take their oath to the constitution seriously.

    Indeed.

    Agreed, particularly regarding Romney and firearms rights. I've had enough of his "hunting" rhetoric. He gives up and cops out of that argument much too quickly.

    Yeah, but if she's independent and has a spine, would she sell out to someone who won't seal our borders, who wants amnesty, who won't allow waterboarding, who wants to close Gitmo, and who's a big spender, etc?

    Surely at least in Arizona we need to seal our borders?

    If she has a debt to repay, does that mean she can be bought?

    I think you will be hard pressed to find anyone that rises to the level of a Presidential Candidate that does not owe his/her career to several supporters.

    I think the alternative of a third party, like the Perot attempt as an example, is to guarantee that Obama and his thugs will have another four years in the saddle. That will just split the conservative side of the contest and the liberals would love to orchestrate that little maneuver.

    When the Tea Party Supporters, The Second Amendment March Supporters and the Republicans all join together and choose the leaders, that is who will get my vote. That is the outcome that I think will happen and I think it will force most of the RINO's out of the conservative party.

    Its the election coming up that is the important one because the outcome will show the country the direction that the voters in America want the country to go in. If there is support for Obama, we may be doomed. But if the conservatives win big with individuals that are strong on the fundamentals of our Constitution then that will set the tone for 2012.
