Despite receiving more than $18.8 million in contributions this quarter (over $7 million more than Giuliani, the top fund raiser in the last quarter) and according to the most recent Rasmussen poll of likely Republican voters in New Hampshire, placing ahead of Thompson and in a statistical tie with Huckabee and Giuliani, Ron Paul has been excluded by Fox News from their next debate in New Hampshire.

"They are scared of me and don't want my message to get out, but it will, they are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative." Ron Paul

It is very sad that Ron Paul will be excluded, but not surprising from the government propoganda station. I probably wouldnt see that debate anyway, I get sick to my stomach listening to the filth spewed by Faux News.

Ron Paul and every candidate have the right to be heard and we have the right to equal public time from every candidate, particularly when so many are undecided and feel their choices so limited.

Ron Paul is against the republican establishment so of course Faux News is going to exclude him. I have decided that I will either vote for the democratic nominee or Mayor Bloomberg (if he runs), because the republican party literally makes me sick.

I've heard that many folks feel exactly the same way about the Democratic party! LOL!

I think, therefore, that alot of people may need to get themselves to a doctor to get better to get a prescription for a 'chill pill', because one way or another alot of people are going to be sick! sick

As far as I am concerned, life is much too short to feel sick over anything or anyone... wink

Blessings for the new year,

I certainly have no illusions about the democrats. If I were close enough to all of the real going's-on in the political world, I probably would never vote again. Happy New Year! smile See, I'm not a complete grouch! wink

Alice,

I didn't say that I wasn't a grouch. I'm just not a complete grouch! wink

That is so well said. I can easily get furious with politics (and other things as well); but what does my fury change, and what good does my displeasure do -- except to make myself sick and poison my mindset and my dealings with others?

I'm certainly not good at it, but I can begin to see the wisdom of the Fathers who advocated dispassion.

Lord have mercy !

Again: well said, Alice.

I heard that Fox received so many emails complaining of their exceedingly evil action in excluding Ron Paul that their computer system was shut down. If only enough emails could be sent to shut them down forever.

I could understand the claim that Ron Paul is not a conservative, but I would like to know on what grounds they excluded him. They must not suspect that he has or will gain much support in the caucus.

AS a devout Monarchist, I find the whole system appauling. Wer select out leaders based on nothing more than popularity, and let them run in a ridiculous system in which they rely on parties, wich in turn support agendas, which themselves divide the nation.

The whole thing makes me sick.

Give me a good old fashioned constitutional Monarchy any day.

We will see what happens tonight in Iowa. If Ron Paul can place third, it will be big. My prediction for Iowa are:

1.) Romney
2.) Huckabee
3.) Ron Paul
4.) John McCain
5.) Fred Thompson
6.) Rudy Gulianni

1.) Obama
2.) Clinton
3.) Edwards


Anyone else want to play the prediction game for Iowa?
