I voted.

And then there's this whining about how us Ron Paul supporters are allegedly 'ballot stuffing': http://forthardknox.com/2007/08/02/ballot-stuffing-ron-paul-style/

Well, another trash article appears with zero proof! Like Hannitys text poll. The scary thing, ex Rons votes is that noone gives a rats behind for the announced frontrunners? Thompson got solid support in the poll, i'll give him that, was his ballots stuffed? But Rudy McRomney, the hand picked cfr candidates get little support, have zippo grass roots. When its all said and done Dick Armey can gauge how much of it is ballot stuffing vs, hard core grass roots support. No matter, Ron would have beaten Thompson handily and crushed the frontrunners into oblivion anyway. What it does show for sure is that those who know Ron and hear him speak are hooked, and we have to word of mouth him to everyone. No proof of ballot stuffing yet they feel an article is necessary? OH well, March on. And McCain who gets zero support and is broke gets the front podium at the debates? He should be cleaning the toilets in the back.

Totally! It's amazing how some folks are peeved because there's a public poll, and some enthisuastic voters are actually voting for the candidate of their choice, what a notion!

And yep, I voted once only.

the results on Dick Armeys straw poll so why anyone says its ballot stuffing is beyond me. I will not sign up to comment on the ballot stuffing article but if someone has please forward this to them.

and results to be reported to national media, of course they will not report it to you. To me the poll says noone is interested yet, the other candidates have tepid support at best and more important those interested in a change love Rons message. If they say it was ballot stuffing without looking into Thompsons decisive win over other CFR candidates, its a farce of a headline. It also says McCain who will be given a preferred spot in the middle of the debate does not warrant preferential treatment and should be dropped to second tier.

You know, getting Ron Paul that 2.4 Million last quarter was the biggest spamming we have done yet.

Dr. Ron Paul smoked 'em all!

Hollywood Fred only got 29% of the votes Ron Paul got.
