    Tho they won't admit it, it is speculated that Fox news decided not to hold an online voting after the republican debate tonight because of the embarrasing results from the last one. Ron Paul won it in a landslide.
    The PTB at FNC attributed this "fluke" to Paul supporters using automated computer equipment to "Steal" the vote.
    Tonight they switched their format to a text message vote.
    The results? Ron Paul won with 33% of the vote. The next highest was Guiliani with only 16%.
    Sean Hannity's first comment was "Here we go again". Later he said "The Paul supporters are hitting redial". I tried to re-dial to see and it wouldn't let you vote twice from the same number. At the end of the night Hannity had to admit that Ron Paul was the winner. He played it down with "sometimes these things happen".
    When are they going to realize that people actually like what the man has to say? What he says makes sense and a lot of American people support him.

    This on yahoo news


    DURHAM, N.H. - Republican presidential contenders voiced support for the Iraq war Wednesday night despite a warning from anti-war candidate Ron Paul that they risk dragging the party down to defeat in 2008.

    "Even if we lose elections, we should not lose our honor," shot back former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, "and that is more important than the Republican Party."

    Huckabee was in the majority, Paul very much in the minority on a University of New Hampshire debate stage when it came to the war. The politically unpopular conflict has emerged as the dominant issue of the 2008 race for the White House.

    The issue flared near the end of a 90-minute encounter in which all eight men on stage welcomed former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson to the race with barbed humor and pointed advice.

    "This is a nomination you have to earn," said former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. "Nobody's going to give it to you. Nobody's going to grant it to you."

    The debate unfolded several days before Gen. David Petraeus is scheduled to deliver an assessment of President Bush's wintertime decision to commit 30,000 additional combat troops to the war.

    Sen. John McCain, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Giuliani all stressed support for the war, at times even competing to show their commitment.

    "The surge is apparently working," said Romney, referring to the increase in troops.

    That brought an instant rebuke from McCain, who said, "The surge is working, sir, no, not apparently. It's working."

    Alone among the contenders, Paul, a veteran Texas congressman with a libertarian streak, made the case for withdrawing troops. That drew a sharp challenge from Chris Wallace, one of the debate questioners, who asked whether the United States should take its marching orders from al-Qaida.
    "No! We should take our marching orders from our Constitution," Paul shouted back, pointing his pen at Wallace for emphasis. "We should not go to war without a declaration" by Congress.
    Occasionally interrupted by applause, Paul doggedly stuck to his point. "We have lost over 5,000 Americans over there in Afghanistan, in Iraq and plus the civilians killed," he said during his exchange with Huckabee.
    "How long — what do we have to pay to save face? That's all we're doing, is saving face. It's time we came home," Paul said.

    And on Fox News website they have a write in section to state your opinion of who won. Several RP respondents posted.

    Even though I will most likely have o vote on an absentee ballot I plan to make SURE to vote in the primaries and vote for RP. The sad part...even though Im positive he will get a large majority of the votes in the primary (the real votes) I honestly doubt the vote will be counted to show it. I hope Im wrong but like has been said in the past, the pesants can vote all they want, its the one counting the votes that decides the outcome. Kind of like the media, its CLEAR from talking to folks as well as from any unaltered polling data that RP is by far the front runner in the race and yet I dont believe I have heard his name even stated on the news yet. You only hear about the ones in 4th or 6th place that the media aprove of and are given the impression that they are winning and the only 'real' candidates in the race.

    I truely HOPE we can beat the political machine and get him in but Im still sceptical that he will even be allowed past the nomination process.

    Results of the latest 23 straw polls around the country:


    First place in 9
    Second in 4
    Third in 4

    So, in 17 of 23, he is third or better....winning almost 1/2. Yet, his "polling" numbers are in low single digit ?

    I call Bullshit.

    Hey....Huckabee...here is what "Peace with Honor" looked like last time that phrase was trotted out by Nixon.

    How many times do we need to learn the lesson that Nation Building doesn't work ???

    What they don't understand is that our vote is the last bastion of our freedom; the very last. If they continue to ignore the voice of the people, there WILL be an armed rebellion. It may be a small one and destined to the back-page as another shooting spree-madman with a gun, we're here to help...type thing but it will be an armed rebellion despite their spin-doctors.

    I got to watch all of it when it re-aired last night. It's amazing how they pretend RP isn't there at times, and are even condescending at times. Add in the obvious anti RP crusade that Hannity is on, and I believe that Fox News People have been given the orders from above to downplay him.

    The treatment of candidates like Paul and Tancreado as "also ran nutjobs" just helps to solidify my belief that our election is already decided. Hiltery/Omama vs. Guliglinie/McKale are the "front runners" in a race that will not be decided by 'voters' but by the NWO hack's in the media.

    All I saw was the 'frontrunners' including Romney, doing 30second soundbite practice in front of millions. No real answers were allowed in the timeframe alotted. Hardley a debate![troll]

    OH yeah, Hannity suck's butt.
