pulsar.gif - 2171 Bytes Ron Paul's Campaign Strategy
"... On "Super Tuesday," February 5th, there will be 22 primaries and caucuses. I have a hunch that we're going to do very well. But, of course, the media and the rest of the establishment refuse to recognize that. It's the attitude of the small child who covers his eyes to make something scary go away. But we are not going away.

"While the media focus on the couple of states they claim are important, we're competing everywhere. And the reason that we're able to do that is because of your grassroots support. You all are an asset that no other campaign has: donors, and activists who want no special deals from the government, just the Constitution.

"We're competing very strongly in all the caucus states, and in all other states where delegates are up for grabs. And we're going to keep picking up delegates. Our strategy's already working.

And we're committed to winning states. I have little doubt that if we can double our efforts in this coming week, we're going to grab many delegates from other candidates. Then we'll start getting ready for the biggest moment of all - the convention in September.

pulsar.gif - 2171 Bytes Ron Paul Campaign to Louisiana GOP: Count All the Votes
State Party Blunders Put Caucus Results in Question
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the Ron Paul presidential campaign calls on the Republican Party of Louisiana to count all the ballots submitted in the state’s January 22 caucus.

“The 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. “The party needs to correct this mistake by counting all the votes immediately, and releasing the results.”

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 party officials, caucus locations relied on a voter list from November 1, 2007 despite the fact that under caucus rules, voters must have registered Republican by November 30, 2007. The Louisiana Secretary of State reports that 2,709 Louisiana residents registered as Republican between November 1, 2007 and November 30, 2007.

In multiple instances on caucus day, state-certified Ron Paul delegates that were on the ballot were forced to file a provisional ballot despite the fact they were pre-approved as delegates.

The Louisiana State GOP also changed the rules at the last minute to allow other candidates to file more delegates. 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.

Ron Paul at FOX Debate: 2008.01.10
rpfoxdebate20080110_sm.jpg - 17951 Bytes
Carl Cameron [FOX]: "Another question about electability. Do you have any, Sir? (laughter from candidates and audience) There is always the question as to whether or not you're viable. Your differences with the rest of the Republicans on this stage has raised questions as to whether or not you can actually win the Republican nomination, Sir.

Watch Ron Paul's answer.
He changes laughter into widespread applause:
Are you viable?
Ron Paul buries guilt by association attacks
Ron Paul is certainly electable in a fair election and vote counting/reporting process. A blind national poll compared the policy positions of candidates (A,B,C) without the candidates being identified by name. Ron Paul ran away with this national poll because Americans prefer his policies over those of the system selected candidates. The US vote counting/reporting system, however, is rigged. It can be rigged because the voters have no mechanism to audit their own vote after the polls close - even with paper ballots. Here is the solution to the vote counting/reporting element of our election process. However, to implement this solution, we must first retake the US House of Representatives and/or the Presidency.

"We have been following developments very closely and are deeply disturbed by the extensive and credible reports of fraud in the election. ... We call for a full review of the conduct of the election and the tallying of election results ... because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse."
-- US Secretary of State Colin Powell regarding the 2004 Ukrainian election which was recounted and over turned based upon the final vote not matching the exit polls --

"... We are seeking to reverse more than a century of big government, of the warfare-welfare state, of Federal Reserve's dollar manipulation, of a fat and happy military-industrial complex, of the subversion of our Constitution. So all the media and other "second-hand dealers in ideas," as F.A. Hayek called them, who have a vested interest in the current order, will do everything possible to smear me. They will do and say anything to try to block our movement. Even vote fraud is not beyond these people."
-- Ron Paul Typepad, Message from Ron: Onward!, January 10, 2008 --

Excerpt ...
"... This isn't just another ho-hum, rah-rah election and we cannot treat it as such.

"The question is this: Had these voters not stepped forward and put their complaint on a Ron Paul blog site, would the county clerk have corrected the "error" and Dr. Paul's real vote numbers entered as official results? Does her excuse ring true? Not to those of us who have been into the vote fraud issue for so long. How many more missing votes are there for Ron Paul?

"This whole process is a travesty. Ron Paul is moving on to the next primaries, but what about the mess left behind? He simply can't afford not to get those delegate votes. One thing people aren't paying enough attention to is that each of these primary "events" gets the candidate convention delegates. Go to this news item which gives the delegate count. Ron Paul has zero. If he doesn't start racking up those convention delegates, forget the White House. He can't do that if the vote is being stolen because those delegates hinge on the vote. Rasmussen had Dr. Paul at 14% for New Hampshire. FAUX had him at 8% all day and the machines made sure it stayed that way to the final "count." The chatter all over electronic and print media the day following the primary: all these polling orgs have egg on their faces! It's called eating their own when it's expedient - place the blame away from the true culprit. The bull, the cape and the matador.

"I don't know who is advising Dr. Paul or if he's even being told what's going on. There is no shame in a candidate paying for a hand recount. The shame is doing nothing about it and moving on as if everything is okay. It's not. Look at all these dedicated Americans fighting for every vote for Ron Paul. Is his campaign simply going to blow off this fight for his votes? In four days it's Michigan, the same thing happens and his campaign just says, oh well, off to the next state?

"Right now the polls are showing Congressman Paul at a pathetic 4% for South Carolina. That state is considered a crucial one, yet South Carolina is going to use voting machines banned in other states! (see here) There will be NO delegates for Dr. Paul if this happens because the machines will keep the vote count below 10%. Take ten minutes to watch this test of a vote counting machine where 6 no votes and 2 yes votes are fed into it. The demonstrator confidently hits the button to get the vote tally. The results: 7 yes and 1 no. The demonstrator is shocked. Not me. This is what's happening to our elections and Ron Paul is the number one target in the presidential race on the GOP side.

"If this continues into "Super Tuesday," Feb. 5th, it will be all over for Ron Paul. If there isn't some accountability at this stage, we're going to see more of the same. Same old game I've watched for 14 long years when I became aware of fraud fraud. As hard as this quiet, decent and honorable man has worked during his candidacy and for all the dedicated supporters of his, how can you simply over look what's going on and not challenge it? What message does that send to supporters? How can a candidate expect his ground troops to get out there and fight for every vote for him, if the candidate won't even make the effort to verify every vote has been counted fairly when there is evidence of vote tampering? It's not money for a hand recount because we have opened our wallets big time. There are things that simply must take priority."

What we don't know is why the victory is so much different in fact, than the polling ahead of time, including what we call the Exit Polls were telling us.

"I [Bev Harris] just got off the phone with
Jennifer Call, Town Clerk for Sutton [New Hampshire].
She confirmed that the Ron Paul totals in Sutton were actually 31,
and said that they were "left off the tally sheet"...

"This is not an acceptable answer, especially because one of the most common forms of fraud in a hand count system is to alter or omit results on the reporting sheet. Hand count is lovely, transparent. They then fill out another reconciliation sheet, often in front of witnesses, and it looks fine. Then they provide a summary or media sheet with the incorrect results."

FOX Stock at 52 Week Low Due to Electioneering Charges — NewsWire / New York / 1-5-2008

Fox News parent company NewsCorp (NWS/NYSE) has lost over $3 billion in market capitalization in less than a week as the stock plummeted to a 52 week low amid electioneering charges against Fox for excluding [RON PAUL] a major presidential candidate from a nationally televised forum. Many feel Fox is trying to rig the election.


"Bias has to do with the elimination of points of view,
not presenting a point of view."

-- Roger Ailes, the president of Fox News,
in his 2003 interview with Broadcasting & Cable magazine
regarding liberal bias in the mainstream news media,
Conservatives Betrayed --

from a nationally televised forum
just prior to the New Hampshire primary.

"[FOX News is] scared of me and
[doesn't] want my message to get out,
but it will.
They are propagandists for this war and
I challenge them on the notion
that they are conservative."

"Black Box Voting needs live IOWA CITIZEN REPORTS on Jan. 3. Note that the Iowa caucuses must allow observers and must allow both video and photography, as long as you do not disrupt the proceedings. You do not need to be a member of the party to observe or videotape (but you must be registered for that party if you want to participate in the caucus).

"... 1) Black Box Voting has received reports that political operatives have urged citizens NOT to ask too many questions and NOT to take photos or video of precinct caucus results, warning them that only "conspiracy theorists" would want to independently confirm the announced results.

"It is your DUTY as a citizen to oversee your governmental processes. Because Iowa caucus procedures lack basic checks and balances, such as posting the precinct caucus results at the precinct caucus location for the public to examine, it is actually very important for members of the public to take video and photographs and share them.

"2) The Iowa Republicans have NOT publicly agreed to promptly release precinct results for the Jan. 3 caucus. Instead, we are seeing bait and switch tactics, as they emphasize to caucus participants that the counting will be done in public at the precinct. While they keep your eye focused on the front end, a switch can take place at the back end. When they release a total result to the media without releasing the individual precinct results at the same time, there is no way at all for citizens to confirm that their precinct results added up to the announced total.

"Please CONTACT both the Iowa Republican Party and the Iowa Secretary of State to tell them you expect to see those precinct results published at the SAME time they announce the statewide total. Iowa Republican Party: (515) 282-8105 Iowa Secretary of State: 515-281-0145 515-281-7142 (Fax) "

States Question Electronic Vote Machines
"... states have found critical flaws in the accuracy and security of their electronic voting machines, forcing officials to scramble to return to the paper ballots they abandoned after the Florida debacle of 2000.

In December alone, top election officials in Ohio and Colorado declared that widely used voting equipment is unfit for elections.

"... The swing states of California, Ohio and Florida have found that security on touch-screen voting machines is inadequate. Testers have been able to disable the systems and even change vote totals.

The Israeli Defense Firm That Tallies The Iowa Caucus

By Christopher Bollyn
"The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the nation's attention will be directed to the results, which signify the beginning of the U.S. presidential race. But does anyone watch who tallies the results of the Iowa caucus?

"The Iowa caucus results were tallied in 2004 by a company that is headed by a man whose company was bought by Elron Electronics, the Israeli defense firm. I suspect that it will be the same this year. Don't expect to see any grassroots political activists doing the tally in Iowa. The Israeli defense establishment takes care of that part of the American 'democratic' election process."

FOX News Scared of Ron Paul
Afraid to report and let you decide
"Ron Paul’s campaign says he’s planning an alternative event at the same time as the Fox New Channel’s Republican forum in New Hampshire on Sunday if the network continues to hold back on an invitation, a campaign official tells Politico.

"... Jesse Benton, Paul’s national press secretary, said he likely would hold a town hall with New Hampshire citizens — an event that would amount to counter-programming and would likely generate considerable publicity for the anti-war libertarian.

"... Paul announced he raised $19.5 million in the last quarter of the year,
and party sources say that is more than any other Republican campaign.

"... Benton said the campaign has placed about six calls to Marty Ryan, executive producer of political programming for Fox News Channel but said they have not been returned."
