Assuming of course that you believe that election results are actually based on votes:

Ron Paul, losing early primaries to Romney, will run as an Independent, splitting the GOP vote in the national election and giving BO a second term.

On the other hand, who gives a shit. They are all the same in the end, and whoever is in the White House the one thing you can count on is that the vast majority of citizens will get increasingly fucked over for the benefit of the Goldmans, Exxons, Halliburtons, GEs and so on.

If Ron Paul doesn't win I would still rather have Obama than Romney. Romney is a corporate pimp. This guy is running on the moniker of "I'm a businessman". Obama is political garbage and it will take awhile for the americans who aren't awake yet, to figure Romney out. If we get Obama at least we can try to get a Democrat congress in and find out what Obamas true colors are. SOPA and NDAA are killing this guys credibility though. Not to mention all the Wall Street banksters he has hired his administration. Wow just reading this makes me feel like we might be fucked!

ALL are the same, EXPECT RON PAUL. Who does not get mone from those people

I think you are correct he would split the republican vote, probably more than the Obama vote. I know a fair number of democrats, especially younger ones, that like Paul. Most everyday conservatives feel his foreign policy is too far out.

I've become convinced the President has been deliberate, and I'm certain his strategy of silence surrounding the prosecution of wall street fraud will prove eminently successful -

  • at further provoking the public, encouraging engagement that might otherwise be lackluster if the admin acted - if the admin were to act it would reinforce the perception that we [the public] don't need to get involved because the right things are getting done - the right things are not getting done, our participation is required to get them done - and that message will be heard loud and clear by the public

  • at identification of those District Attorneys who have the evidentiary necessities for prosecution yet resist - laying bare networks of nitwits engaged in corruption

That is quite an optimistic opinion about a dedicated corporate tool.

It could even be wrong - but given some of his other moves, I'm willing to give the President the benefit of the doubt.

I do suspect that between Wall Street and the repelican party they have somehow managed to hold the entire economy hostage - necessitating the appointment of insiders.

Hostage taking has been an integral repelican strategy since at least Clinton.

Nah, even a full on sociopath would have already caved in under the pressure to prosecute, aisle side would have made no difference. You may or may not know what that makes him depending on if your writings are actually what you believe or just a shill act.

Keep in mind, over 250 of Regan's gang was prosecuted.... for far less. The American public hasn't forgotten how it was to see DC suits getting grilled and drilled.

Wait, I'm talking to a guy that missed Ross Perot's candidacy, so you too may have not been paying attention then either.

Ray-guns crew interfered in what were ongoing criminal investigations, and it turned out, were significant players under those investigations, as demonstrated by Barry Seal, whose death they helped engineer.

But don't worry. Once the public discontent reaches critical mass I'm confident you will see the President take charge - and get so much more done than if we acted now.

It makes me all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.

Interesting that public discontent not being strong enough prevents a Constitutional Scholar and Harvard attorney from prosecuting obvious and blatant criminals. I suspect your warm fuzzies may be short lived and hollow. Nobody has prevented him from subjecting any of these criminal$ to the full force of the law, other than it sure appear$ he'$ quite cozy with mo$t of them.

we will see . . . with luck we'll begin hearing about arrests and their gop-py connections by mid summer . . . .

bwa hahahaha

That sounds like you believe Pelosi shouldn't be prosecuted along with all the rest of the elected servants who are guilty of insider trading. Don't answer, I already know any demo-crime is to be suffered by all. Just like your upholding Holder, he's flat out wrong and guilty.

Pelosi is an interesting case - I have not seen the evidence, only allegations - if they have merit then she has something to answer for.

As for Eric Holder - you don't have anything on him. If you did, he would no doubt have been arrested long ago. After all, he is a Black Man in a position of significant power . . .

and that is no end of irritation to racist righties wherever they are . . .

Wow, you choose to ignore reality. The SEC told congress implicitly that most all of them could be prosecuted for violations of insider trading laws. Most all of them do it. The evidence, and even blatant admissions, exist. Party affiliations mean nothing.

Holder's obstruction of justice and multiple perjuries before congress have been recorded and broadcast for all to see. Let's assume I am right, why would he not be prosecuted? Dems and Repubs both have directly called him on both charges because it's been as blatant as the insider trading, the bailouts and everything else the de facto DC plutarchists are easily shoving down the throats of ANYONE who remotely buys into the bi-party diversion and smoke screen.

I'll assume you failed to catch any of the broadcasted hearings when Holder clearly perjured himself, multiple times, and willfully refused to produce documents which have been subpena'd as far back as early last year.

As far as I know, he still hasn't produced the documents.

Let's assume I am right

Why would we do that? If Holder had actually perjured himself, as you allege, I have every confidence the repelicans in Congress would hold him accountable, and not for any particular commitment to the principle of Justice mind you, but rather for the political gain to be had from associating his scandal with the President who appointed him and is up for reelection.

You don't think things very far through before you latch onto them, do ya.

I'd show you the videos but I know you wouldn't watch them even if they came over the airwaves onto a tv you may or may not have. Otherwise you'd already know.

NOBODY is getting prosecuted BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL CRIMINALS.

Line them all up in a circular firing squad would do the trick.

I'm certainly not the one with a problem of not thinking things through, or rationalizing fanciful notions.

Oscummer and Holder both belong in prison for fast and furious

That actually began under Bush. It deserves a close examination.

And I am going to enjoy watching the chief justice of the supreme court, a conservative activist administer the oath of office, to President Barack Obama.

That will indeed be a pleasure. I'll be sure to think of you, cringing, in some dark hovel, waiting for the end of all you know . . . .
