Today I typed Ron Paul into my Google search engine, and the Google News section didn't pop up. I had to click the "News" tab just to see what was up. I went back to a normal search, looked through the whole first page, then the second page, then the third page... Google doesn't post "News results for Ron Paul" when you search his name... I'd been noticing that they would post pictures OTHER than Dr. Paul, whenever the Ron Paul news would come up, or that the link would be put lower and lower on the page. What's up, Google?
I googled 'Mitt Romney' and News results for mitt romney was the FIRST link that popped up.

And now, it takes me a while to load up Ron Paul forums, is there construction going up on this page or is my high-speed internet just slower at picking up this website? I'm not tech-savvy or anything, so I don't really know if my concerns are legitimate, but they're concerns nonetheless.

One things for sure, if they think they can shut out/censor/blackout Dr. Paul's message, then they can sure as hell expect me to join Dr. Paul in his march on Washington!!! :mad:

The press is still reporting on Mitt Romney
They are not for Ron Paul

This is why many people have assumed he has dropped out, and google is not returning news results; they are not relevant anymore.

if you search "mccain" it will often (it did two different times for me today) do the same thing (not show the news links). It does if for paul every couple weeks or so.

RucdelaSpook, who do you think setup Google and why?

I have no idea. I guess I could look it up on Wikipedia. I saw a documentary on Google once, and it looked like a bunch of college kids made it. I do think that Google has a lot of power though. In the interview with some blond woman (i think she was vice-president or something), they asked her why Google just retains everything and why they never delete their user information. She kind of gave a bad reason why they were doing this (something about how it went into the efficiency of their search engine and the algorithms, and that it was faster to keep a memory of what the user was trying to look for), but I was a little concerned. That's one of the reasons why I don't use Gmail-- if that makes any difference. Also, because some Chinese guy got sent to prison (and killed?)because they bowed to the Chinese Gov't. :eek:

Some time ago on these forums I read about a Google equivalent, or front end that did not record users' search terms. Does anyone know of that alternate Google like search engine?

Thanks

I will be darned They are a member according to that. My membership list does not show that, but shows Reader's Digest, which is not on that list. It would be almost impossible to boycott all those companies..what have we let our nation become?
