Note the usual low angle shots to make the Ron Paul crowds more impressive. Count the actual number of Ron Paul supporters, not many.

This technique was perfected by the anti-war movement in the 60's. They'd stage a set up of marchers or ralliers, all perfectly framed to fill the picture and give the impression of a large crowd. They found that a pyramidal format was best, with the leaders standing on a platform of some sort, with the backs of the heads of onlookers between them and the camera blocking the view of all the empty space around them at ground level.

Ron's got a way to go on technique, but not bad for a beginner.

But what really matters is who shows up to the polls on primary day. only 10% vote and you can bet your dollar that every single Ron Paul supporter will be voting on those days. If I were you I wouldn't call the election just yet.(However if the GOP nominates another neo-con, warmonger fascist such as Rudy McRomneyson, the GOP will see the biggest defeat since Hoover)

Oh no, some people don't like you to talk like that! Can I ask why I am not allowed to refer to the top tier as that term? It isn't racially insensitive, it doesn't slander anyone and it doesn't break gunboards terms of service. So why should I stop saying it slim tim? Is it because you support fred thompson?

I did. My session equaled my usual NY Times editorial reading time about about what we MUST do:

2 seconds.

The Ron Paul propaganda fest was more interesting.

Here's some tips on making believe you've got a mass movement:

1. The right way - mass everyone together.
2. The wrong way - split up into special interest groups, like Lesbian Librarians for Ron Paul:

Lizzies like Ron? Maybe he is their favorite gynaecologist? Wonder why?

Considering those are not Ron Paul supporters.

Here is a good picture of the typical group of Ron Paul supporters.

...Just when I thought you couldn't be more ignorant, naive, and stupid...you show us another level of depravity.

How sad.

Bush is waiting for your re-enlistment. The military is pretty strained right now, with having to fight this long, drawn-out, unconstitutional, immoral war.

I wonder, did you retire in 2003 before the Iraq war or after? Did you even serve in Iraq?

Its easy to keep pushing the war on and on when it is not you that is doing the fighting. Our soldiers have fought as best as they can but the ideologues running the show have let them down and its time to come home.

I have more time in service than you are likely to have time on this earth.

That is why I never have to dance around issues and avoid the truth the way you tend to.

You are socialist scat trolling for attention.

(and I am being kind here)

I am glad people like you represent an extreme and very unimportant minority.

I feel bad for Ron Paul knowing that silly bastards advocate for him.

He has a hard road to travel without the support from the voices of the "workers party".

With people like you on his side, who needs enemies and issues?

He is effectively being torpedoed by his supporters.

You are doing a fantastic job at making sure he is laughed at.

Guilty by association and without a choice.

And you still didn't answer my question but thats ok. I'll ask it again. Did you serve in Iraq?

Oh and explain to me how I am a socialist. Go ahead explain. I'm all ears. And don't give me this "I dont have time to quarrel with you" bs, you've got time to reply with those mindless expulsions of psycho-babble so you have time to answer two questions.

You certainly haven't served anywhere.

( Maybe some prison time, certainly not military time. )

I will tell you when I was last in Iraq after you post about the last time you were locked up in county for CSC.

I will tell you this:

You continue to repeat the same few words and phrases you have repeated since the beginning.

You are not debating anyone.

You are not even remotely qualified to debate with anyone here.

The only variation you show is the weak insults you try to hurl at those who disagree with you.

Then you accuse others of being brain washed?

Try reading your own crap and see how completely ridiculous you are.

Wow, more evasion of the discussion. And you still haven't answered my question, so I'll ask it a third time; Did you serve in Iraq during the current war?
Also, how am I a socialist?

Please note that the "Ron Paul supporters" in your posted picture no sooner got elected than they went to war with a half dozen Indian tribes - all undeclared - and later the French - the famous "Quasi-War" - and passed the alien and sedition acts suppressing freedom of speech and of the press.

Are you sure they aren't all Rudi Giuliani supporters? With all those wigs?

Or is everything you think you know wrong?

Well indians were viewed back then the same way terrorists are now. You can't declare war against a terrorist organization. The founders were perfect by no means, after all Jefferson talked about the equality of all men, but then owned slaves.

Atleast I question things, unlike you with your sweet little Hitler-Youth like obedient qualities.
