    Ron Paul won hands down. All of the candidates were just parroting Paul positions. Who started to teach us about what the federal reserve is and why sound money ie gold and silver cannot be manipulated. Also who started the Tea party. Ron Paul planted the seeds of the grassroots.

    • brooke says:

      I completely agree. And I find it pathetic that our media is ignoring America’s opinion on who’s truly winning this race. Does the media really think we are overlooking the best candidate? Its outrageous and infuriating. The only way we will be able to successfully elect Ron Paul is through VOTING because God knows there will be little to no coverage over him. As long as social networks keep promoting Ron Paul, there’s an actual chance our voices will be heard.

    The reason Ron Paul wins these debates even when he is given little time to speak is due to the American people becoming more informed and educated on the candidates and who has the integrity to be honest with them rather than tell them what they want to hear or what will win votes. All anyone has to do is look into the history of these people and find out what they have always stood for. This along with the fact, the corporate media’s attempt to make up our minds for us has become overwhelmingly obvious. CNN, MSNBC, Fox etc. are corporate media who work for the war profiteers. Ron Paul rightfully wants to bring the troops home from around the world and the war profiteers don’t want their money going away even if it is at the cost of lives. Americans need to be more honest with themselves and realize what’s going on, they have been duped for decades by liars.

      I agree with you. The alotted time for Ron Paul was truely unbalanced. He is the only candidate who for years has tried to educate the public about how the Federal Reserve has destroyed the value to the U.S. currency along with giving our tax payer dollars to other countries, foreign and domestic banks. We don’t know what the Fed has done since it’s inception. A transparent audit for the U.S. taxpayers has been long needed.
      This war has cost us in the trillions with thousands of lost lives. Stop policing the world. We’re broke and we don’t need to borrow money from China anymore.
      NAFTA has destroyed our manufacturing ability in the U.S. China is not our friend. We just had the largest cyber attack regarding our military. They munipulate their currency to benefit their imports. Our goverment officials/Congress has not addressed these very very serious problems.
      Ron Paul is the only candidate who actually gives us details about how our country can return to prosperity, freedom of our rights, eliminating burdensome regulatory agencies, and restoring our currency.

    Funny how CNN did not have the balls to put up a poll.

    • Barbara says:

      They put up one poll on their website that listed only three candidates–Bachman, Perry, and Romney. No one else had a chance to be voted for because they were not an option.

  4. Jim Jacobson says:

    I think Michele Bachmann won. She made Perry look bad. Ron Paul was too whiny when it came to the Wars. My $.02

    • Iain Palmer says:

      when your brother comes home in a box because of some utterly useless war, then you can talk to me about whiny.

      • Shandrea says:

        Sorry to hear of your loss. Great job of sticking it to that idiot Jim Jacobson who sits on his couch eating tater chips spouting off like he knows something about war. Arm chair war propaganda! Fat, lazy, balding American who thinks he know what’s best for America. Get a clue Jim! And a treadmill!

      • Skeezz says:

        Your an asshole Jim. You would not say that if you felt Iain’s pain. I am sorry for your loss Iain.

  5. Bob WeeAddahBabee-EeetsaBoy says:

    The American people need to be educated on why our foreign policy isn’t working. The fact that Ron Paul was Boo-ed when he was describing what Obama Bin Laden said were the reasons he attacked, us is ludicrous! He was reciting out of the 9-11 commission report for pete’s sake! and he was boo-ed for that? The American people in that audience didn’t like hearing the truth? Are you kidding me? And then Wolf, after getting what he wanted quickly moved on. The powers that be are getting behind Romney. Beware America, you are being set up for more of the same.

  6. packeryman says:

    I agree with above statements, that Ron Paul wants to bring home all troops, close all foreign military bases, stop nation building, and stop trying to be the worlds policemen. This is the political ideology all the candidates should have along with Ron Paul’s ideas that our failed free trade policies should be renegotiated into fair trade agreements. But the Republican party has a problem with this political ideology, they are owned and controlled by large corporations, making unbelievable profits in wars, occupations and so called free trade(resulting in the demise of our industry and the fast disappearing middle class). It is obvious that corporate controls our news media(not just FOX) but all of our news outlets, other wise Ron Paul would get a fair shake. I have been looking for polls since to nights debate and all polls on the net show Ron Paul winning by 85% an above. Let see how the major poll takers try to spin these results tomorrow.

    RON PAUL SON! 2012!!!!!!

  8. David J. Lindstedt, Sr, MSG US Army (ret) former Marine 1953-1965 says:

    Without question, Ron Paul, knows more about the Constitution and lawfull money, than anyother candidate. Why is CNN promoting, liberal Democrat, Rick Perry, as a “conservative”. Not supprising. Ron Paul, is the only candidate to demand and end to 10 years of endless war, fought by “grandpa”, the Viet Nam and Desert Storm veterans of the National Guard and our Reserve Armed Forces, many with 3 and 4 combat tours. APAC and the Israeli lobby has American blood and American money, being expended into infinity, yet no one can explain what brought down building # 7 at the WTC, after 10 years. Time to bring the troops home and American money back to America.

    Big problem is these lop sided media managed debate between media created candiidate, with equal time for all to speak.

    • Sandor Bors says:

      Agreed! There are so many more questions about 9/11 that need to be answered. WTC 7 smells of controlled demolition which brings the whole house of cards down and those of the military industrial security banking elitist complex who were involved. Many sleeping Americans are in for a rude awakening.

  9. Stacy Young says:

    Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate that is actually worth voting for. Everyone else are typical politicians and they are the fabric of the establishment! Don’t vote for the same old crap! Ron Paul speaks the truth, has integrity and a 30 yr voting record in Congress that matches what he says and has also said! Listen to what he says, it all makes perfect sense.

  10. Dot Schexnider says:

    Sorry to disagree with many of you, but I think Ron Paul sounds like a nut! Who’s way out? Ron Paul is, that’s who.

    • OrvilleWyatt says:

      Ahhh, a consensual slave afraid of liberty – you know, a traditional R or D.

      How quaint. How 20th century

    • Buck says:

      So who do you think won and why? or are you just a schill obama queen

    • Judith Royal says:

      Isn’t it strange how those who favor Ron Paul support their opinion with FACTS, while those who oppose him simply attempt to apply LABELS? Of course, it’s getting harder and harder to find facts that can support opposition to Paul!

  11. Barbara says:

    I don’t think Ron Paul sounds like a nut. I think he sounds like an honest man who wants to try something different instead of more of the same.

  12. OrvilleWyatt says:

    If you don’t think the good doctor’s support is real . . . Than do tell why no one is mobilizing to makes sure YOUR phony wins EVERY poll?

    End the wars, end the Fed, end prohibition.
    Read Thoreau, read Bastiat, read Paul

    • Jan says:

      Love this:

      “End the wars, end the Fed, end prohibition.
      Read Thoreau, read Bastiat, read Paul.”
      – Orville Wyatt

      Mind if I share it via fb and elsewhere?

  13. trumpsahead says:

    Ron Paul does not want to try something different, he merely speaks about what is right and honest: The wars America is involved in, Iraq, Afghan,Pakistan,Libya and more were never declared wars by Congress – they are unConstitutional.
    The bailouts were unconstitutional. Free market is what this country is all about. If you make a mistake, you pay the price, you don’t get a bailout.
    As far back as the Bible, the State, Agad, was destroyed by God when its King was haughty enough to take Sacred soil from Babylon. And Did you see the movie “Jeremiah Johnson” with Robert Redford where he was conned to take 20 pilgrims through a Sacred Indian burial area with the result that all were killed by revenge for desecration.
    It is an unwritten law of our Planet Earth, you don’t disrespect what is considered Sacred, sacred land, artifacts, bldgs, temples, burial areas, etc.
    So Ron Paul is correct – Why shouldn’t Iraqis and Pakistanis etc be fuming and want revenge, when after such sacrilege, all they can see is revenge. Isn’t that exactly what we wanted after 9/11?
    Anyone who thinks people around the world are “jealous” of Americans are truly nut jobs of the highest order. Jealous? I dare anyone to say that two years from now; we all will be wishing we lived far far away from this hell hole we are creating. Show me someone today who is Not complaining about our tyrannical govt? Jealous, look up the meaning of the word.
    If the masses cannot see that the Constitution is the greatest living American document ever created, we may very well be doomed to slavery.
    RON PAUL OR NO ONE 2012!

  14. Gary Smith says:

    To the five who voted for Rick Santorum… why?

    He’s the worst of the bunch.

    95% of the voters have it right; Ron Paul won and it’s not even close.

  15. noel says:

    Yeah totally surprised at how developmentally challenged Rick Santorum’s statement regarding the 2001 attacks was; WHAT? you think people halfway around the world are investing all that time and money (not to mention their lives) ’cause they hate our constitution? Are you freaking kidding me? What do I care if some guy in France gets all the best looking girls in his hometown? (analogy) What a dumb-a** – I wouldn’t be surprised if those booers were part of a set-up. That question sure was.

  16. Dang says:

    Thanks Dr.Paul for his perfomance in the debate…he is honest and stick to his guns for 30 years. Shame on the Media which has nothing to do with real journalism,they skip Dr.Paul on important question and they make the public think it is just a Romney /Perry Contest. But this effort to ignore Dr. Paul will fail because the people already woke up!
