The New Hampshire primary results were a great disappointment, but hardly a disaster for the Ron Paul Revolution. Dr Paul's supporters, being primarily bright young people, will learn the lessons of that event and increase their efforts—and their effectiveness—in future. This revolution is about more than Dr Paul and his current campaign, anyway; it's about the message of libertarianism, the philosophy of liberty.

Most of us old timers know that the US election system is designed to perpetuate the strangle hold of the "Two [sic] party system", just as we knew (and predicted) that the government-licensed "main stream media" would attempt to strangle the Ron Paul Revolution. We pointed out that they would first ignore Dr Paul's campaign and its message of liberty, then belittle and, finally smear Dr Paul in an attempt to smother the message of peace, prosperity and Constitutional government. These things they have done as the Ron Paul Revolution progressed.

One of the jackals of the MSM, one Andrew Malcolm, is giddy with delight at the poorer than expected showing in New Hampshire. In the asinine column he writes for the Los Angeles Times blog, he crows about how Dr Paul is "a loser—again" and mocks the confidence of his supporters. The great sage then challenges them to "...explain in specific detail... why Ron Paul lost so badly in New Hampshire..." The tone of the article is typical mainstream media hack; smug, sneering, blustering, bullying and baselessly arrogant. His is the false confidence of the petrified, putrefying ancien regime. "Let's hear it," Humpty Dumpty commands.

Okay, smarmy boy, here it is, and try to grasp the subtleties: there is a much larger base of support for Dr Paul than the 4% you MSM hacks constantly claimed until Iowa. Even the "poor" showing in NH of 8% should make that clear even to you: Dr Paul received double what you hacks claim is his level of support despite your efforts to keep the voters in the dark about him. We not only said all along that there is much more support for Dr Paul than you hacks claimed, but we also pointed out that, aside from the occasional smear, you media clowns have avoided discussing Dr Paul's campaign.

Being excluded from the Faux News debate is just one more example of the MSM's idea of a level playing field. Despite the reference to Dr Paul's appearance on the Jay Leno Show, this is not equivalent to being in the televised debate, and even you know it.

Don't bother citing the few articles that are the exception; we aren't fooled. We are awash in a tidal wave of MSM jabber about the "momentum", religion, "youthful charisma" or "leadership" of the candidates of Big Government and eternal war. We are drenched in blithering about who is more "ready" to continue to lead the American people down the garden path to ruin. It's no more elucidating of anything of importance to the populace than is the latest on Britney Spears or Brad Pitt.

Meanwhile, Dr Paul's discussion of specifics like how the Federal Reserve is an unconstitutional disaster gets ignored, as does his explanation of the link between the imperial wars and the weakening of the dollar. Ron Paul is all about substance; you statists are all about smoke and mirrors, creating false impressions by saying the word "change" frequently and always in the abstract, and general fear mongering. After all, if the masses ain't scared, they won't let Big Brother save them with the lovely Patriot Act. But the MSM try to keep the people ignorant of the alternative to More of the Same Old Lies and Nonsense, so too few people have actually had a chance to hear Dr Paul's message. That's the main reason we did less well than we expected in New Hampshire.

The people who support Dr Paul are overwhelmingly young and inexperienced in the ward heeling machine politics of your candidates. They will have to make super efforts to counter the effects of your smear-and/or-ignore campaign and vote fraud. They will, too. They aren't in a defeated mood; you should see the clip of CNN showing Ron Paul headquarters after the "loss". This is not a dispirited revolution.

Andrew, you represent all that is worst in American political life; the wars, the renditions, the collateral damage, the gestapo shakedowns at the airport, the lying and slandering of any who threaten your various fiefdoms... That's why you shills for the State are the ones who are scared now. The Ron Paul campaign is just getting started, and the Second American Revolution to which it is giving life will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, for, once again, the times they are a-changin'.

Sneer and mock all you like, you clown. It won't do you any good.

And it won't stop people from continuing to hear the message of...

Peace and Liberty.



Kaptain Kanada, aka Manuel Miles, is a nasty old curmudgeon who lives to torment the God damned nation-State, feminazis, mercantilists, Darwinians, warmongers, socialists, global warmites, Vegans, abortionists, animal rights nutsos, and the "politically correct" of all stripes. He is not a nice man, and you wouldn't want him for a neighbour—at least, that's what his mother says, and she should know. If something he writes upsets you, he won't care; on the contrary, he'll feel that he has succeeded in his efforts.
