Like my name suggests, I really am just a passerby. Anyway.

I think the above links are pretty clear. Let's watch Time spit in our faces.

And how about they add insult to injury. Look at the options. Note who is, and who -isn't- an option to vote for. "Vote for your choice" my ass. (pardon my French)

They acknowledge the overwhelming support for Dr. Ron Paul, yet beyond that completely ignore him.



Cheers, and bye.

Ron Paul is my person of the year. The elite MSM lap dogs will never select him or anyone else as person of the year that does not agree with their fascist agenda. I knew that fact but I voted for Ron Paul anyway :o.

Time's POY awards have been agenda driven for as long as I can remember-except for the time it was "YOU". :rolleyes:

here was what i wrote to them after seeing this...

What the FUCK TIME! Why in the hell did you ask people to post comments and then ignore who got 75% of your votes. Go look at your page for gods sake! Ron Paul should be the man. Fuck! You fucking corporate dicks make me sick as hell. i cant take much more of shit like this. These dick heads on the stage are bought and paid for. i hope you guys fucking go bankrupt. Cant count!!???


Sorry but i am sick of lies even when you can see for yourself who got the most votes. im loosing it people. our country is being destroyed by the crooked politicians and the crooked news media and public persuasion.

Ohh you are the one who wrote that. I gave it a thumbs down. Sorry... It sorta portrayed a bad image. ;)

What slime. They make a video that acknowledges "One name dominated the comments and responses; Dr. Ron Paul" and then they go on to show ALL the videos that were NOT for him and not a single one that was, then they tell you to go vote for "your choice" on a list that they compiled supposedly based on the YouTube response, and Ron Paul isn't on it.

I had a feeling this would happen but I didn't want to jump the gun and call them names for something they hadn't done yet.

Well, now let's give them some righteous wrath. Here's their "letters to the editor" (Rick Stengel) email address:

Ron Paul being celebrated by the MSM is a joke.

The MSM chose Obama for president and the MSM will choose Obama for Person of the Year.

I watched the 3nd video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55K1KwM-Wvc&feature=channel
There is a few broadcasters who agree with Ron Paul where are they? I don't like suze orman too much. She gives sound financial advice but seems like a power hungry cunt.
Now time magazine is making obama out to be like Roosevelt?! Also newsweek hinted him to be like lincoln. What's going on here? Its being inflated way too much and the media is running with the inflation. Obama has yet to sworn in and do something.
This heroification process needs to stop. Of course I voted 3rd party this year but something needs to be done to stop this monopoly. If you apply for a job will the manager just throw away all but 2 applications? How about a CEO position? I'm sure there would be more than 2 qualified candidates to run a country of 300million or so. I think we all know who should get the man of the year, but we all know obama will be the one.

It's absolutely remarkable that they left Ron Paul out of the choices for Person of the Year, given they gave 25 choices, and Ron Paul got vastly more plugs on Time's Youtube video than any one else.

I sent them a snarky email -- like it'd do any good though.

But boy, am I not surprised on the final 25.

/me rolls eyes.

Anyone know how to download this video so it can be posted on YouTube? It's got some funky player that doesn't let me download the .flv like I usually can.

People should hear TIME acknowledge RP's popularity, then simply omit him from their top 25.
