Was Maine Stolen from Ron Paul?

• www.thenewamerican.com
The mass media have repeated the official results for the Maine GOP presidential caucuses that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney narrowly beat Texas Congressman Ron Paul by a 39 percent to 36 percent margin. But the official results are incomplete. And postponement of the results from one of Ron Paul's strongest counties, Washington County, because of a forecasted  snowstorm may alone have tipped the balance in Romney's favor.

Ron Paul's campaign confidently predicted victory when the final votes are tallied. "Only 194 votes [statewide] stand between Paul and a first place victory," RonPaul 2012 blogger Jack Hunter pointed out in a post after the media declared Romney the winner. "Washington County is a stronghold for Paul and has yet to report. It might be a week before we know the final outcome there and Washington County is expected to yield 200 votes or more." Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum placed third with 18 percent of the vote in the official Maine caucus statewide vote tally, while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich placed fourth with six percent of the vote.

Hunter's prediction is not braggadocio. In south Washington County, Maine, Paul beat Romney by 132 votes in a February 7 Cottage Grove precinct-level caucus preceding the county "super-caucus" that was supposed to be held February 11 but will now be held February 18. Maine's South Washington County Bulletin reported February 8: "In District 57 ... Texas Congressman Ron Paul was the favorite among Republicans. Paul earned 237 votes in the non-binding poll, followed by Santorum’s 209 votes. Mitt Romney had 105 votes in the district, Newt Gingrich 61 votes."  The February 7 south Washington precinct-level caucus results, which were not reflected in the official statewide total, were alone sufficient to offset two-thirds of the difference between Romney and Paul in the official statewide totals.

Yes, the U.S. presidency was also stolen from Ron Paul, including this coming November 2012 presidency. Yes, he has been running for president decades ago or many years back, and he always won, but the presidency was always stolen from him. After 2012, he will run again until he could no longer walk without a cane or a mechanized scooter. But he could never stop or give up.  He is the only hope of those who need a president from the "lunatic fringe" -- in the words of a New Hampshire newspaper.

All primaries are won by Ron Paul -- except that he was "cheated". So long as Ron Paul is not announced the winner, all primaries are fraudulent! No primary was conducted right if Ron Paul was not the winner! How about that? In this website, only one candidate is running -- Ron Paul.  All others are nuisance candidates. How about that too?

Here's an easy way to make an educated choice about who to vote for in November:

Google and watch these three youtube documentaries:

"Power of Nightmares" - foreign policy truth BBC documentary

"Money as Debt" - clearly explains who controls the money and power

Google "Michael Scheuer Iran" - ex-CIA head Bin Laden unit explains our foreign policy and fear of Iran

Google and watch "Predictions in Due Time"

Then you can consider yourself educated and ready to cast your vote.

Okay, you can blame anything until you turn blue -- but Ron Paul can never win, will never become president of the United States even do you swear that the sky will fall if he doesn't become the next president of the United States! He cannot be elected ... he is  "unelectable" ! How hard this is for you to understand, why ... I really don't know. It is so funny and the public has a stomach ache laughing when you explain that he didn't win any primary because he was "cheated". For many years Ron Paul has run for president, it is the same kick in the bucket -- he was "cheated".  Oh, boy ... when will you ever learn ...
