In the endless surging thread you had emilybh all youtubishly giddy about Ron Paul drawing a crowd of 5000 in Maryland. Look where that got him in Maryland, he came in 4th losing to Newt Gingrich who is hardly even running a campaign anymore. Obviously Ron Paul drawing a crowd does not mean he'll draw enough voters to the polls.

It has nothing to do with the MSM ignoring this event in California, it has to do with a very small percentage of the population caring about it because it is not a significant or newsworthy event.

Ron Paul breaks another record with 6,200 people attending a town hall in CA.
There is much MCM doesn't cover so I wouldn't expect things to change soon. However, there is a reason they are losing viewers. Nice to see the numbers rising.

It has everything to do with the game being rigged, that becomes ever more obvious to anybody that's paying attention and we are not finding any humor in it. Perhaps next time it will be your candidate being sidelined.
Why are you spending so much time on Ron Paul threads when you don't support him? Couldn't your time be better spent promoting your choice? This is where we want to be, what's your excuse?

Why did Ron Paul drop out of the race anyway?

I can't wait to see what happens at the UCLA town hall tonight. The venue sits 10,000

No, Ron Paul drawing a crowd in California is not a newsworthy event in anyone's eye but rabid Ron Paul supporters. He isn't "being" sidelined with this, he sidelines himself by doing events in a state that doesn't have a primary for two months and barely registering a blip in the three primaries actually being held.

I don't promote anyone, and if you want threads to just consist of starry eyed fans talking about how glorious Ron Paul is I suggest you go register at one of those Ron Paul forums.

Would you like me to find every Romney/Cain/Obama/Perry/etc. thread that you've participated in on here?

Because Ron Paul has, what...50 delegates? He hasn't got a chance in hell of being nominated. Neither does Gingrich.

It's not an MSM plot, they follow the leader.

The American people do not want your gimmick.
Every poll says so, Every results says so.

Its your choice if want to believe Alex Jones, info wars,and the Multiple Ron Paul fan clubs websites and their conspiracies they come up with.

Sadly his fans want to take the result out of the voters hands. I'm sure for someone dead last in popular vote would help a lot.

You should like this is ONLY happening RIGHT NOW. It is on going. Go look back on it when we still have tons of people on the race.

You don't even know what you are talking.

What we want is push back the majority rule. Why should majority has control of the minority? Why do they allow to take away my hard enough money.

Yes, you all talk about fairness.

Go talk to A student see if they see it is fair to share their grade with C/D student who hardly put any time into their study.
