    How you decide on primary candidates to vote for? - I don't! they're selected by MSM

    I know I do not. I saw this same exact poll on this board in this section, but here is the problem - it did not have the most important option - the fact that establishment media decides this for us, not the people. so the real question is how does establishment media decide who is to be on stage for those primaries to begin with? they just select their trusted people, and if someone like Ron Paul becomes an obvious winner among their trolls, they use every dirty trick in the book to destroy him like a runaway train. Establishment supporters will deny this claim, but I will make a simple poll to see where the people stand, and then they can make claims that people are stupid (yet they are the ones who bring up democracy and elections and primaries)

    I choose who I vote for. I don't let the media decide for me.

    I do not know if the media chooses the candidates or not. A person must decide whether to run or not by themselves. The media does push certain candidates that is for sure. But what the media does is a huge disservice to the American Public. They concentrate on the horse races and polls. What candidate stand for, they stances on the issues and their visions are not portrayed by the media. It is left for the candidates to get their messages out. Which in a way is right.

    But as many hours the media broadcasts polls and news about who is ahead, who is falling and who may be rising. I think the public as a whole would be better served if the media ran a few pieces on what all the candidates stands. Perhaps a 5 or 10 minute segment comparing each candidates views on the issues of the day. But they do not do that, they will continue to just talk about the horse race and rarely nothing else.

    I do not think this is the media choosing the winners per se. But what ever it is, it certainly is a disservice to each and every one of us.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Right. And despite different wording you and I use, I still think both of us are saying the same thing - think about it - why did establishment media had to SMEAL Ron Paul campaign while allowing someone like ex fed chairman Herman Cain to be a Tea Party spokesman?

    Yes, I'm sure Rons problem was the media and not his horrifyingly stupid economic and social platform.

    I see you are trying to twist, be sarcastic, confuse etc. but can you explain to me how in a referendum he wins against all other popular MSM candidates? in other words if you allow positive as well as NEGATIVE voting for Ron Paul and select 5 or 10 other most popular MSM politicians, then deduct negative votes from positive votes and he wins. is there any way you can explain this fact without twisting, derailing, trolling? I do not think you can my friend, because all your MSM popular candidates starting with Obama at the top are a TOTAL FRAUD

    Using caps does not make something true.
