I am begging you all PLEASE upset the main stream media, upset the republican washington mechine, show America that we are sick and tired of the politics that has brought our great nation to her knees and close to tyranny. Please vote for Ron Paul. You all have a say in the matter. Last primary election, the republican nominee was decided before my state (west virginia) even got to vote. I love this country and I want my kids to grow up in a free society where they don't have to be subjected to harassment by the tsa, where they can be a success if they so choose. Mitt Romney and the other established republicans are all the same. They will talk a good talk then get to washington and carry the same policies as the administrations before them. Ron Paul knows the constitution and would abide by it. Please help those of us who don't have a voice, thank you.

The Ames poll is worthless. In '07 Romney won the poll, Huckabee won the later caucus and Mc Cain won the nomination. Obama of course won the Presidency. The winner in Ames doesn't mean anything.

Maybe so, but it does force the media to mention Dr. Ron Paul.

I know you like Paul but he's considered a nut by mainstream voters. He won't last long when his competitors take off the gloves.
