Was Ron Paul Robbed in Iowa?

Here's Lew Rockwell's reasoned take:
Many LRC'ers think so. I don't know, though I will have more to say. There are polling and other oddities. But I do know this: politics is a dirty, rotten affair, full of bribers, bribe-takers, liars, demagogues, and worse. Trillions are at stake in this nomination. Politicians will start a war and kill a million people for less. Are we supposed to think that they would cavil at electoral skulduggery?


  1. Doesn't's the number of delegates that counts. At best they may have stolen 1 delegate from us:-

    Nonetheless, we need to socially boycott what the blogosphere thanks to Alex Jones & Gerard Celente has dubbed "presstitutes" just like during apartheid South Africa their tourists were boycotted in the rest of the world.

    eg: Do not serve them in your restaurant/do business with them etc.

  2. According to a lot of sources Ron Paul was shut out for delegates... I'm seeing conflicting sources all over the place.

  3. I agree with Lew...we really don't know what went on.

    However, messing with elections is chicken feed for the powers that be. They're involved with elections all over the world. To think that Iowa would be 'left alone' would be kind of naive.

    For Ron Paul to win, support will have to be massive, and enough to overcome even election tricks. Fortunately, this is possible.

    **If** the time is right, then nothing the opposition does can stop Ron Paul. Every decision they make, will in hindsight, turn out to be the wrong one.

  4. I don't have a hard time believing that Paul could have finished third, without any skullduggery, for a variety of reasons. But the eight vote difference clinches it for me. I draw two possible inferences. The GOP fixed it and they are flaunting it. Or they fixed it but there was dissension about who the winner should be, so they satisfied both sides.

  5. Yes, he was, but it won't make the difference on the nomination.

  6. If the CIA is on record fiddling with elections in Italy, Syria, and every other corner of the globe, then simple messing around with in Iowa (especially with electronic voting machines, I just dont know if they were used for this) is child's play.
