FORT LEE, N.J., Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Inflation Association - http://inflation.us - today officially declared Ron Paul the front-runner to win the upcoming 2012 presidential election. NIA is very pleased that Ron Paul won the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll of who attendees want to receive the GOP nomination to run for President in 2012. This is the second year in a row that Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll. He received 30% of the vote compared to Mitt Romney, who came in second with 23%. Sarah Palin received only 3% of the vote. 3,742 total people voted in the straw poll, which was twice as much as four years ago.
It is funny how when Ron Paul wins the straw poll, CPAC organizers are sure to say right before the results are read that, "It's not a Gallup poll." However, if it was Mitt Romney winning the straw poll, they would say no such thing. This reminds us of the mainstream media's all out efforts to marginalize Ron Paul during the 2008 election season. Every time the GOP candidates would have a televised debate, FOX News would have a text message poll where viewers can send a text to vote on who they thought won the debate. Whenever Ron Paul would perform favorably in these FOX News text message polls and receive a large percentage of the text message vote, FOX News would unbelievably make up excuses to try and discredit their own polling technology!
After a GOP candidate debate on May 15th, 2007, FOX News conducted one of these text message polls on who won the debate. In this particular instance, Ron Paul didn't even win the text message vote. Mitt Romney won with 29% and Ron Paul came in a close second with a respectable 25%. However, even when finishing in second place, FOX News felt the need to say, "How is Ron Paul's numbers so high? We've had so many emailers say that clearly some online communities are messing with the outcome." (While one FOX News host was saying this, the other one was saying "absolutely" in the background.)
Please see the NIA blog for a video we just posted of this incidence, as well as a video we posted of how FOX News worked overtime to try to downplay and discredit Ron Paul's 2010 CPAC straw poll win. We also posted a video from this year's CPAC showing the ignorant comments of Donald Trump, who claims Ron Paul can't get elected. (How many elections has Donald Trump won? Ron Paul has been elected to Congress eleven times.): http://inflation.us/blog/2011/02/the-political-establishment-is-afraid-of-ron-paul/.
NIA believes that Ron Paul's beliefs reflect the majority of educated Americans. In our opinion, Ron Paul's CPAC straw poll win two years in a row is very significant and suggests that our country is ready to move away from the Republican establishment that acts exactly like Democrats once in power. Mitt Romney is a part of the Republican establishment that has bankrupted our nation and put it on the brink of hyperinflation. Ron Paul is the only real candidate who would implement real change.
It is not Ron Paul supporters who are somehow able to manipulate the CPAC straw polls and FOX News text message polls, but it is the mainstream media who is able to continuously manipulate the minds of Americans into believing Ron Paul is some kind of a "radical" candidate who is unfit for office and has no chance of being elected. Ron Paul is the only sane candidate in an insane Washington, DC, which thinks it is OK to print $4.6 trillion out of thin air in order to bailout investment banks on Wall Street that produce nothing and Americans would be better off without.
During the MSNBC GOP debate back on January 24th of 2008 in Boca Raton, FL, Mitt Romney was given the opportunity to make 13 comments totaling 21 minutes and 11 seconds, while Ron Paul was only allowed to make 6 comments totaling 6 minutes and 31 seconds. At least MSNBC allowed Ron Paul to debate. He was banned from the January 6th, 2008, FOX News GOP debate in Milford, NH. Despite being banned, Ron Paul still received 10% of the GOP vote in NH. Rudy Giuliani, who was allowed to debate, ended up only receiving just 3% of the vote.
In the 4Q of 2007, Ron Paul was able to raise $20 million and ended the year with $7.8 million in cash on hand. Ron Paul doubled John McCain's fund raising during the quarter of $10 million. In fact, John McCain's campaign was broke at the end of 2007 and had $1.6 million in debt.
Ron Paul's $20 million in fundraising came from an amazing 130,000 individual donors. Ron Paul had real support from what was probably the majority of educated Americans who actually took the time to learn the truth about the candidates and their positions on all the issues. Despite this, the media did everything in their power to ignore Ron Paul and manipulate people into believing he had no chance of winning. They declared John McCain the frontrunner, despite the fact that he held the same positions as the Democrats on nearly every major important economic issue.
The media described John McCain as a "war hero", yet Ron Paul received triple the amount of contributions from military donors. Ron Paul received more donations from military workers during the primary than McCain, Huckabee, Romney, and even Obama combined. Considering that Ron Paul was the only GOP anti-war candidate, this says a lot about the current foreign policy of our country and if members of our military believe our current wars are worth fighting.
With the incredible growth over the past few years of alternative media organizations that speak the truth like NIA and the rapid decline of the mainstream media, when the 2012 election comes around, more Americans than ever will be educated to the truth about the U.S. economy and the candidates running for President. With food inflation likely to become America's greatest crisis over the next 12 months, just like it currently is in Egypt, and Ron Paul by far having the most knowledge about the Federal Reserve and how it is responsible for the world's food inflation crisis, we believe Ron Paul will have a serious chance of winning the GOP primary and 2012 presidential election.
