Ron Paul and Kucinich are in the same boat.....neither fits into their party platform, but each representing the best of what their parties USED TO stand for. The parties now, have melded somewher in the middle, into one big ugly system, not offering the people any truly beneficial, populist choice. FOX and ABC should be fined for keeping Kucinich (ABC) and Paul (FOX) out of today's debates. The airwaves are for the PUBLIC INTEREST, not the networks' private crusades and whims.

But again, Dennis got 0.0%
I would pay to watch Dennis and Ron duke it out in a cage match.
Girl fight!!!
Nice WRONG statistic there, Wrong Paul. Your name suits you. You fear his message of TRUTH. He got 10%. And if a pathetic, no-idea loser like McCain would do us a favor and drop out (forever!!), Paul would suck up all his votes from the many, many conservative independents and disallusioned Republicans. That is a fact you can take to the bank!

Proof that kukucinich is insignificant:

MUNI LIGHT WAS SO IMPORTANT TO CLEVELAND THAT IT HAS BEEN SOLD - KUKUCINICH DEFAULTED CLEVELAND BECAUSE HE WAS INEXPERIENCED AND STUBBORN! HAD MANY FIGHTS WITH COUNCIL PRESIDENT GEORGE FORBES!
HIS ADMIN. WAS A CIRCUS & A JOKE!

AFTER BEING BOOTED AS MAYOR HE COULDN'T FIND WORK -IN THE 80'S HE MOVED TO CALIF. AND LIVED WITH SHIRLEY MACLAINE! HE WAS SO CHEAP HE COULDN'T MAKE THE PAYMENTS ON HIS MORGAGE OF HIS CLEVELAND HOME - WHILE LOAFING OFF OF HIS HOLLYWOULD LIBERAL FRIENDS! IN 1982 HIS INCOME TAX RETURN REPORTED EARNINGS OF $38!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT A LOSER!

HE WANTS TO END THE WAR AGAINST ILLEGAL DRUGS!

HE WANTS TO LEGALIZE SAME SEX MARRIAGES!

HE WANTS TO GIVE AMNSETY TO ILLEGAL CRIMINAL IMMIGRANTS!

HE WANTS TO GIVE DRIVERS LICENSES TO CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!

HE HAS FLIP-FLOPPED ON ABORTION AND IS NOW IN FAVOR OF MURDER!

WANTS TO ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY!

HE HAS A MALE-ORDER BRIDE!

HE SIGNED A LETTER OF "SOLIDARITY" WITH HUGO CHAVEZ!

AND KUKUCINICH CLAIMS TO HAVE SEEN A UFO AND ALIENS!!!!

I SAY AGAIN - THIS BRUDDER RUINED CLEVELAND AND IS VERY, VERY INSIGNIFICANT!!!!!!!!!!

PEACE & GOD BLESS, BRUDDER FUNK!

This is not about Dennis Kucinich, this is about WE THE PEOPLE!

We the people deserve to hear ALL the candidates in a fair platform before we cast votes in the primary.

It is not up to ABC or any other media corporation to decide for us who we can hear and who we can vote for.

9.9% of Republicans voted for Paul, netting him a punishing fifth place.

You're not too bright.

Another bone-head Paulbot who can't read. The Global Elite are watching you right now.

Paul got 3.2% of all 359,000 Iowa voters - a serious loss by any measure.

Are they gonna let every meaningless candidate on the debates - they'd last for days and low ratings! And what kukucinich says will put most people to sleep anyway!
kukucinich:
led Cleveland into default and ruined the city
admitted he changed his stance on abortion to get more votes in presidential campaign
flip-flops routinely to get votes
got a male-order bride
is INSIGNIFICANT
anti-U.S. military
is buddies with castro and muslim terrorist leaders
In short, and kukucinich is very short, he is a LOSER!!!!!!!!!!
Him & Paul, Both pathetic losers but ,guess what? They can now retire in the style they've always wanted to become accustomed to. They're not all THAT dumb!

Ron Paul turns in any unused campaign donations to the U.S. Treasury at the end of a race.

Typical blind Paulbot you are.

Ron got 9.99% of the Republican vote, and 3.2% of all votes assuming a turn out of 359,000 voters with his 11,598 votes.

Try reading all of the words.

Paul got ZERO in the Wyoming caucus. Nothing, zilch, nada, goose-egg. Zero.

Ron Paul says he will turn in any unused campaign donations to the U.S. Treasury at the end of a race. But, since he is not obligated to, there is no way of knowing if he will or, if he does, how much he skimmed off for himself first.

The broadcast and newspaper media has abdicated probably its most valuable tool. There was a time when the distribution of information was validation. This was probably because a name, a company, some organization's credibility was attached to 'the story'. Today, verification is fast and most are aware of the 'wiki vulnerability. This fast verification may reintroduce something that has been missing in many public arenas, SHAME.

From your fist posts I thought you were talking about Myth Ruiney. But to answer your questions..The so called War On Drugs has made violence increase and created narco cartels around the world, destoyed communities and lives and made America the greatest prison in the world. It IS time to end the war on drugs and put control back into drug control.

2. What the hell does 2 guys or girls marrying in some far off state have to do with your personal life..are you that insecure?

3. What do you plan to do with 12million illegals..deport them?

4. Flip flop on Abortion..that is ghouliani and Ruiney.(Proven fact, they even said it on the youboob debate.."i was wrong".

5. The death penalty doesn't deter crime.

6. His wife met him before he was a somebody..Are you jealous that she is hot.

7..I just tore you apart.

Ps..dr paul will be on cspan today at 3:30et. Time to meet your next president.:)

Iowa is not NATIONAL..i say we do away with the electoral college bs..1 vote 1 person.
ooops..then it would be President Paul. or Dr.President, or President Dr.. whatever.
There are no National primaries so what is your point. Kucinich received no support.
It's not a sign to dig in, it's a sign to get out because no one is listening or supporting you.

Electoral college serves a good purpose. If it were only popular vote, the candidates would only focus on the larger populated states and ignore everyone else.
Too many are ignorant or that or simply forget in their emotional response to something they don't like in the process.

I got warmed up today when the City of Henderson enforcement code came to my house to tell me I needed to clean some weeds out of my yard and move some garbage we had moved from the backyard to go to the dump. This was my reply to the City of henderson.
When you begin enforcing laws that matter is the day I will clean my yard. A nuclear waste route is planned to go through my back yard and you want me to clean a frickin weed out of my yard that grew by itself. We have been cleaning our back yard and have some stuff that needs to go to the dump and Iím being pressed by you to move it from my own front yard and I will be charged if I donít. If this is a place to call home. I donít want to be here. I have lived here for 28 years and have been attacked by redevlopement because of a bunch of greedy bastards that want to play God with others lives. They will help by giving me money and then put a lien on my house.?

Clean your own frickin house. I feel more and more Native American everyday...

The checks and balances are in place in Congress so what are we worried about?

These two gentlemen would give the people what the people already have if they would only come together and take it .. The Power to the People by the people for the people. As it should be.

Sorry you are feeling the pinch , good luck . My moms neighbor gets garbage gobbler /bwi , for some reason she can't get pick up, right across the road , they say they don't go out that far , actually she is a few hundred yards above the neighbor and they drive by her home both ways , she is on disablity and I truly think that is why , at 40 dollars a month they think she can't pay . She has lots of trash as there are two teens there and we have been under burn bans for months. Oh she's rural.

What do you think about Californias new thermostat control proposal , not mandatory yet but we know how that works.
