Wow, what a welcome to Ron Paul!

Has Romney ever had a welcome like this?
I don't think so.

When Paul came to Dearborn, I couldn't even get inside the auditorium due to the capacity of building being far exceeded. Hundreds of us sat on the floor of an attached gymnasium to hear Paul's speech over the speaker system.

It was an impressive turnout.

Why did Paul come in a distant third place in Michigan?

Ron Paul's not good for the business as usual crowd. He's great for honest, law abiding, hard working citizens whether they are poor or middle class. Too bad the poor and middle class are the blood line leeched on by the corporations, bankers, oil tycoons, and the big business that is our federal government. The media and everyone else who runs the big show in this country will do everything they can to ignore this guy and write him off as a wacko. Just going to be more of the same if this guy is not elected president.

work by a large number of people—investigative journalists, computer security professionals and students, and voting industry workers—has shown that current DRE voting systems have massive and critical security flaws. Not least among these are the risk of computer fraud by the voting industry itself. Although counties require companies’ software and machinery to pass tests, there is no way to prove that the company uses that same software on election day. In fact, Diebold has already been caught secretly switching code after its machines had been tested in Alameda County, California, according to a November 6 story in the Oakland Tribune. Diebold workers also reported that the company switched software in Georgia between tests and the 2002 elections.
These concerns are compounded by the fact that most DRE systems—including all ES&S machines—have internal modems connecting them to external computers. Hackers able to decipher voting machinery code or voting industry programmers could thus issue instructions to the voting machines during or after the elections, after testing of the machines had taken place.

The establishment will go to any ends to make sure Ron Paul doesn't win a contest. If he wins 1 state no matter how small it destroys the myth that he is unelectable.

What are you new here?

Ron Paul actually has the most support, but the vote was rigged. So were the polls taken by various organizations before the voting that showed him have very little chance in Michigan. So were the exit polls today showing it wasn't even close.

All one big conspiracy.

No it doesn't, because he would still lose 49 other states and therefore wouldn't have enough delegates to get the nomination. Ron Paul might as well throw in the towel now...he simply doesn't have the support on a national level.
