Ron Paul; by the numbers

August 25, 2007

   I have come to the conclusion that people really don’t wish to support a candidate without understanding what effect the candidates platform will have on them economically.  That being the case, I thought I’d share with you The fiscal impact Ron Paul’s vision will have on you.  First, I’ll give it to you scientifically.

1.   uh, I dunno.

That takes care of the scientifically derived at numbers for Ron Paul’s issues.  Now we shall move on to the rhetorical.

1.  uh, I dunno.

   You see, Ron Paul isn’t giving us any numbers.  There is nothing substantive in what he says.  He will save us money by ending the war, but then he will spend it defending our borders.  There is no economic model designed to tell us what his constitutional form of government will cost/benefit us, but rather merely the assurances of the good Dr. and his merry men.  I suppose a Robin Hood analogy is inappropriate, because from what I can tell the one thing that is certain is that the poor will be screwed severely by a Ron Paul presidency.  That hardly matters of course, because poor people vote democrat, don’t they?  Hardly, but they aren’t going to be voting for Ron Paul.  They know he hates them, as do any liberals that have paid attention over the last two decades of Ron Paul in office.

    The crossover vote isn’t going to happen.  The vast left wing media armada will put the boots to Ron the minute he appears to be a viable candidate.  The left wing blog world already has, and if you read the daily kos you know what I mean.  Basically, Ron Paul’s only supporters are those who dream of a mythological kingdom where honesty and fairplay conquers reality, and a small time doctor can live his dream of  colonial domination.

   Show me some numbers.  Anybody.  Give me something tangible that would make me think Ron Paul would make my life better.  Don’t offer me his dream of freedom, because freedom in todays society is something you have to take.  Don’t give me more rhetoric about the free market making everything right.  The free market has long been fraught with fraud and corruption, and in no way benefits the vast majority of American people.

   It’s smoke and mirrors gang, until he proves otherwise, and thats why the mainstream media doesn’t cover his campaign.  There is virtually nothing to cover.


The good news for Ron Paul

August 25, 2007

  I decided to do a little research this week, and I have to tell you it cost me dearly.  While I’m not yet willing to gouge my eyes out with rusty spoons, I can think of nothing more mind numbingly boring than checking out Ron Paul meet up group numbers, etc. etc.

   You see, for me it doesn’t matter how wonderful a person you are, nor how right your ideas may be.  What’s important is can you become president, because if you can’t you are an irrelevent side issue to the campaign.  What I’m finding is a lot of very old in blog years news about Ron Paul and his supporters.  I know, you figure its August, and nothing really happens in August.  Fine.  If you’re Hillary Clinton, or Fred Thompson, or some other well known politico.  If you are still struggling with name recognition(and you are, pauliacs), August is your month.  Nobody else is doing anything.  Even the Iraqi parliament is on vacation, so its a grand chance for you to make a move.  Guess what?  You wasted it.  Your poll numbers haven’t changed a bit.  The best number in August is the Fox News Poll which put your total within the margin of error.  That’s right.  It’s quite possible that your 3% is the best national poll number you’ve ever received, and it’s still miniscule.  Hard to imagine a birthday bar-b-q is going to change that.  I think Ron Paul takes his campaign as seriously as the mainstream media.

I did however find good news.    I’ll lisyt the candidates and their vote totals, and then I’ll tell you what it is.

Ron Paul:  48,300,000

John Edwards:  41,800,000

Hillary Clinton: 9,160,000

Fred Thompson: 6,310,000

Rudy Giuliani:  2,880,000

Barack Obama: 2,770,000

   Thats the number of results you get when you type their names, capitalized, in your google search engine.  This means that Ron Paul and John Edwards are way out in front when it comes to….well…having their names typed in a google search engine box.

Better than nothing.  But they still come in behind porn,  viagra, recipes, George Bush, HIV, and cartoons.  It would be nice if your a Ron Paul fan to see something significant in the numbers, and I don’t mean we now have eighty eleven meetup groups with a total of 46, 000 members.  His campaign is growing excruciatingly slowly when you consider you only have 5 months till the nominees are picked, and then it will be all over but the cries of “we was robbed.” 


Ann Coulter gets whiplash

August 25, 2007

  I was impressed, nay intrigued that the jaw clencher was calling out the Bushies, and then half way down the article her meds kick in and its all about the liberals again.  I’m not sure if she’s suffering from schizophrenia, or if she’s really Bill Maher in drag.  He should invite her on.  It’s hard to get that much closeminded hatred in one room.  Che Guevera and Adolph Hitler are both dead.


News that fails to amuse

August 25, 2007

  Hard not to start with this.  Actually, some coming later seem worse, but I can’t stomach them right now.  17 pounds of weapons grade uranium s missing in China.  apparently, it was passed around by different folks so much it got lost in the shuffle.

after admitting to killing dogs that lost fights or were unworthy, Mr. Vick apologized for poor judgement.  what the hell.

I’m not even sure what to say about this….people suck doesn’t quite cover it.  How does one ignore cries for help from someone being sexually assaulted?  I’m apparently not evolved enough to understand this one.

yaye…i’m happy for em…can we really not talk about wrinkly old people screwing? and the oral sex thing…welll, boys and girls, thats just about the grossest imagery since  pinhead.

another food recall.  Whats with getting crap on food, and then selling it to people?
