The following poll reminded me of Ron Paul’s campaign for the 2008 presidential election:

Ron Paul won virtually every internet poll. Not only that, but he won virtually every straw poll physically attended by Repugs as well. When I say “won”, I mean WON – by a large margin. But sure enough, the “official” poll results showed him bringing in only a small percentage of the vote. And sure enough, the final vote reflected those “official” poll numbers.

This has me wondering if MSM internet polls aren’t really put out there to test the waters, so to speak, to determine how much vote rigging needs to be done to make the “official” vote count match the “official” poll numbers on election night. What do you think?

Those who have yet to understand the vacuous nature of electoral politics need only pay attention to the current presidential circus. I don’t know what additional evidence would need to be presented to demonstrate how elections serve but one purpose: to reinforce the delusion that members of the public have anything to say about the nature of the government that rules them. Anything disruptive of the placid mindset upon which the Establishment has grounded its domination of others must be eliminated. This is why Ron Paul has been dealt with as he has by the lapdog media.

In our Marshall McLuhan universe, public opinion polls have become substitutes for critical thinking. This election will amount to little more than a popular referendum on whether people prefer the mindset of Oprah Winfrey or Bill O’Reilly.

The election process is rigged to give you the illusion of a choice when in reality the choices are exactly the same.

Republican hopefuls are chasing the Democrats’ Hillary Clinton. Marvelous.

Now, where is Ron Paul in all of this heady discussion about these Republican “leaders,” as it were?

The “polls” say he is at about 4 percent. Whose polls? AP? Gallup? Fox News? Certainly not us.

These so-called polls are as biased and abusive as their sponsors.

The ugly and awful truth of the matter is that Ron Paul has actually won each and every televised GOP debate to date, and the GOP establishment is too embarrassed to admit it or even back him against the Democrat hopefuls.

As an analogy, this is clearly a case of the Oscars vs. the People’s Choice. However, the People’s Choice Award does not have to hire a Big Seven accounting firm to conceal the ballots. The “people’s poll” is winning this one hands down, and Ron Paul is leading the way.

Pity the losers of the Iowa caucuses and upcoming primaries. I give my support to Ron Paul for president of these United States.
