"A Poll worth getting into.

Though many of us do not read Reader's Digest there are a lot of people that do. They have a poll to rank the candidates and most of them aren't doing well unfortunately the next president of the united states is not there. Please go there and rank the rank candidates that they do have and just below them make sure that you do a write in candidate for Ron Paul. If we get enough Meetup groups around the country to do this they may add him and they do a Bio on the candidates so this may enlighten some of the 80 million people that get the magazine.
Take this poll at http://www.rd.com/channel/election-2008/

In this page: http://www.rd.com/gradeTheCandidates.do

It says: "Do you think more candidates should be included in our tool? Another politician? Or a non-politician perhaps?"
and a link that says "Tell us your top write-in choice for President!", where you can ask them to include Dr. Paul.

Sent: "Dear Sirs,

You left the best possible candidate of all out you Election 2008 Tool - Ron Paul.

Ron Paul is the only candidate that I can name who consistently acts to uphold and defend the Constitution at every possible opportunity. He has more honor and integrity than the rest of them combined.

Please correct this oversight.

Thank you,


I wrote RP in.
