Explain how countering the obvious bias of mainstream Republicans (something you should be thankful for based on your obvious leanings) while working within the existing system is subverting the will of the voters.

Are you of the mind that only the candidates with the most money and those that best parrot the viewpoints of their side of our corrupt two party system deserve a shot at being elected?

It's little wonder there is no meaningful change in the political climate here. Even those on the other side clamor for the party they oppose to reject anyone that actually endorses change.

i bet the people complaining are the same people that would mean

"it is the fault of the voter for falling for fake advertisements by the powers that be, so they get what they wish for being brain washed slaves they are"

*nods* seems like it.

They cant think for themselves so need the television to think for them and they have no principles so go by the whims of peers hence 99% of these types of people are extremely lazy.

which is why i say the supporters of the 3 stooges are ones whom are too
immature/old= lazy/stubborn type people.

Age has nothing to do with it. its the way these people conduct themselves.
ill informed and stubborn oh also extremely selfish.

But anyway go ron paul. they play their games fine we will do our best to defeat these evil ones.
let the force be with us.

I already pointed out that you imply intent. You do not know what this is. In fact, there is more supporting evidence, as to what the intent is, yet you redirect this intent to some subversive scheme or conspiracy.

not at all even a possibility in my opinion. Frist of all, my guess is if Newt doesn't win Al and Misssissippi or one of the two on Tues he is gone and will give his support to Santorum. Still his delegates are bound, as I understand it to him, first round regardless. There are so many good Republicans in the back wings, Rand,even if you support him is still too controversial and too new to stand a snowballs chance in Hell of getting the nomination and why in the world would you think, in a million years Paul would have the final say?

Does this really matter? Paul has been nothing but a huge loser in this campaign. I mean its sad to see someone lose that much. Pathetic.

Here is a question: When someone is so arrogant that they believe anyone who thinks differently politically than them is flawed morally or intellectually -- do you think that that actually helps the political process?

You are telling me that the Ron Paul camp and Ron Paul himself isn't actually public about trying to secure more delegates even when they finish 3rd or 4th?

How can you have the moral high ground that is such a common theme with Paul fans when the goal goes against the will of the voters?

Ask that question of your fellow liberals. They embody the movement you supposedly reject.

Yes there are people on all sides that are arrogant. I personally see more of it from Paul supporters than any of the other candidate's supporters from Obama to Santorum.
