Ron Paul was popular in Florida, but not according to the vote.
A message from a Ron Paul supporter in Florida:
I wanted to share my experience canvassing here in Broward County, South Florida.
As you know, Dr. Paul took 3% of the vote yesterday in Florida. A friend and I signed up on the campaign’s website to be a precinct leader, and took it upon ourselves to canvass 13 precincts in Broward County. I’m proud to report that in the precincts that we canvassed, Dr. Paul came in second to John McCain.
That’s right; Dr. Paul beat Romney, Giuliani and Huckabee. This happened with almost NO media coverage of Dr. Paul. It’s particularly noteworthy, because Broward County is a stronghold of Rudy Giuliani.
But CNN claims that Ron Paul got only 62,060 votes (3%) in all of Florida. CNN doesn’t even put Ron Paul’s name on their election graph – coloring his section in gray. And does CNN mention that Florida has had corporately owned Diebold elections for the past 7+ years? No.
But this was Giuliani’s last (and pretty much only) stop in this race. In his “thank you” fairwell, he almost forgot to mention Huckabee, but remembers Ron Paul, admitting that Ron was the winner of all the debates “on that thing where you call in all the time… I used to watch it afterwards when I’d go back to my room and Ron Paul would win all the debates.”
It seems Giuliani will now ‘go back to his room’ only to continue to realize that Ron Paul is winning. Now that he’s quit, at least he knows that the next time he hears a mob of Ron Paul enthusiasts – it won’t be at his public events.
There were 11 Republicans at the start of this race. There are now FOUR.
Some media claim that the entire race comes down to McCain and Romney, probably suspecting Huckabee will drop out since he did worse than Giuliani in Florida and his campaign is going broke. And ignoring the fact that Ron Paul even exists.
But ‘the man who has no chance’ is still in the race, and his campaign is growing stronger and stronger, and has another huge fund-raising event on February 1st.
Hopefully by now, nearly every American has asked themselves, “why is the media ignoring this one candidate – Ron Paul?”
The owners of the mass media depend on a corrupt government. Ron Paul will cleanse and reduce the government. So they don’t want him to win. But now they can’t stop the revolution. Go Ron Paul, go.

The ‘policy’ of the mass, mainstream media started being defined by J.P. Morgan interests, including Morgan, Rockefeller, Warberg and their powerful colleagues, who purchased a majority of the most-influential media companies and then formed The Council on Foreign Relations to ensure and continue their domination over the world economy.
The objective of these powerful men is “to create a world system of financial control, in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country, and the economy of the world as a whole.” – Professor Carroll Quigley
Wikipedia: Council on Foreign Relations
The Council has been the subject of many controversies, partly due to the number of high-ranking government officials in its membership, its secrecy clauses, and the large number of aspects of American foreign policy that its members have been involved with, beginning with Wilson’s Fourteen Points.
Many organizations, such as the John Birch Society, believe that the CFR plans a one-world government. Wilson’s Fourteen Points speech was the first in which he suggested a worldwide security organization to prevent future world wars.
Some believe that the CFR is working towards a North American Union, a joining of the three governments of Canada, Mexico and the U.S.
In 2005, CFR task force co-chairman Pastor testified in Congress in front of the Foreign Relations Committee: “The best way to secure the United States today is not at our two borders with Mexico and Canada, but at the borders of North America as a whole.”
The CFR task force he headed called for one border around North America, freer travel within it, and cooperation among Canadian, Mexican and American military forces and law enforcement for greater security. It called for full mobility of labor among the three countries within five years (by 2010), similar to the European Union.
Following 9/11, President Bush and seven top officials of his administration waged a carefully orchestrated campaign of misinformation about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.
President George W. Bush and seven of his administration’s top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.
You can see the official LA results at the Louisiana Secretary of State page (results aren’t due until Feb 9 2008).
For everyone wondering what actually happened in Louisiana:
The first thing to know is that Louisiana is known for having an overly-complicated system for their caucuses, as you can see by the rules here. And this isn’t the only LA election that has drawn speculation.
The mainstream media hastily claimed that John McCain is the winner – based only on provisional results – but as we already know has happened in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and in other states so far… those ‘results’ are controversial.

Ron Paul Campaign Files Caucus Challenge with Louisiana GOP
Multiple errors in process leave caucus results unresolved
ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – Yesterday, the Ron Paul presidential campaign filed a letter with the Louisiana Republican Party to contest the credentials of delegates to the state convention.
Under state party rules, campaigns have 72 hours from the end of the caucus to file such a contest. This contest was filed in response to multiple problems with the caucus process.
“The initial failure of the Louisiana GOP to properly determine who was and wasn’t eligible to vote threw this entire process into disarray,” said Ron Paul campaign manager Lew Moore. “However, voter eligibility was just one of many irregularities with the caucus process. We are filing this contest to ensure that we can challenge the results if it appears that delegates were improperly selected.”
The Louisiana State GOP changed the rules at the eleventh hour to allow other candidates to file more delegates, even though there were plenty of delegates to compose full slates in each congressional district. At the time of the original January 10 deadline, Ron Paul had the largest number of delegates pledged to him. The party then changed the rules to give other candidates until January 12 to file more delegates.
In addition, due to mistakes by the Louisiana GOP, hundreds of voters were forced to file provisional ballots, including nearly 500 that could change the outcome of the election. According to the LA GOP, caucus locations relied on a voter list from November 1, 2007 or perhaps earlier despite the fact that under the caucus rules, voters need only have registered Republican before November 30, 2007.
There were even instances at the caucuses where state-certified Ron Paul delegates appearing on the ballot were forced to file a provisional ballot despite the fact they were pre-approved as delegates.
Basically, this ‘challenge’ is to first make a statement: if things don’t seem right, we’re going to investigate.
The charges are at the Louisiana GOP for not
1) ensuring voter eligibility – forcing eligible voters to use untrustworthy provisional ballots as well as
2) changing the rules by adding two more days for filing delegates.
Before the rule was changed, Ron Paul had the most delegates.
Voters who changed their party to Republican in November (the rules allow until Nov. 30th) were not listed on the outdated voter lists used at the caucus locations – these voters had to fill-in provisional ballots.
How reliable are provisional ballots? Well, in the 2004 election, at least 1.9 million provisional ballots were cast nationwide, and 676,000 were never counted due to various states’ rules on counting provisional ballots. It’s obviously a problem worth fighting.
To me, it just seems like a potential way for a caucus to be manipulated into forging fraudulent results. In primaries its easy: just install machines to take votes that can’t be double-checked – but Louisiana’s caucus has it’s own tactics.
Do people really still believe in the election process? What kind of democracy is this?
