    No, he can't win, but it's a shame. He certainly tops who is left in the race.

    On February 27th, 2007 Barack Hussein Obama said the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth."

    In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent."

    The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:
    "Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
    Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
    I witness that there is no god but Allah
    I witness that there is no god but Allah
    I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "

    According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim's complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam.

    Obama knows this from his Quranic studies -- and he knows the New York Times will publish this fact and it will be seen throughout the world

    Quote from Barack Obama's book, Dreams Of My Father:
    In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school"
    "I studied the Koran.."
    "The person who made me proudest of all, though, was [half brother] Roy .. He converted to Islam."
    From 'The Audacity Of Hope, "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

    From Dreams of My Father, " I FOUND A SOLICE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER'S RACE". Barack Hussein Obama

    From 'Dreams of my Father', "The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race (WHITE) would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart." Barack Hussein Obama

    From Dreams Of My Father: "That hate hadn't gone away," he wrote, BLAMING "WHITE PEOPLE — some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives." Barack Hussein Obama

    While we have a real candidate for President that is who I will support with all I can. Every one of them will continue the war, leave the borders open, take away more freedom and on and on except Ron Paul. I think people that say Paul can’t be elected do so because they are just unaware of the support and organization that he has.

    Ron Paul meetup groups 1,612 members 107,228
    Huckabee meetup groups 498 members 17210
    Obama Meetup groups 88 members 5,194
    Clinton meetup groups 52 members 1,596
    Romney meetup groups 11 members 106
    McCain meetup groups 0 members 0

    And this is just the tip of Ron Paul’s organization. All the other candidates have is the support of the main stream media which is controlled. They are all just a shell except for Ron Paul. Ron Paul support, is all grass roots and he has collected more donations than any president in history has the only Blimp for a President in History. Has more youtube, and google videos than any of the others and most of the videos on the other candidates are very negative. All most all the Ron Paul videos are very supportive. I say Join the revolution and support Ron Paul, he is the only one that is going to give the people any freedom.

    If people think their vote will be wasted by voting for him, and they vote for a lesserof the evil remaining, he will go by the wayside just like Ross Perot. The shame of this is, I truly believe that Ron Paul is the best choice for this country just as I thought Ross Perot would have been the best at that time. I am going to stand my ground and vote in what I feel is in the best interests of this country. My vote goes to Dr. Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul for President in 2008!

    He is the only HOPE AMERICA has. He will stand behind his OATH to PROTECT and DEFEND the CONSTITUTION. He will not try to destroy it like the Bush's & Clinton's & all the neocons. Let's help Dr. RON PAUL to dismantle the IRS, the Federal Reserve, & put this Country back on the path to being the greatest country in the WORLD with sound money like the Gold & Silver standard which the Constitution calls for. I ask ALL AMERICANS to re-read THE CONSTITUTION & THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
    then you will know exactly what DR. RON PAUL stands for and I'll be happy to stand right beside him along with all my fellow AMERICANS. It is not about Republican or Democrat. It is about right and wrong and Dr. RON PAUL is right for ALL FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS. Let's take OUR COUNTRY BACK. Let's ALL STAND Beside and Behind DR. RON PAUL. WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of LIBERTY to ourselves and our posterity WE MUST STAND WITH DR. RON PAUL

    Will PR win? i hope so. The road the States is taking is a dark and ugly one. It is where the rich lives in the apartments and dump trash out thier windows onto the poor. This may seem like a communist or socialist comment, but it is mearly a complain. Big Corps have the govornment in a noose created by itself. That mean, because the people is the govornmetn, they have the people by the noose. When they suceeed, the people will never see the light of freedom again. The federal reserve, a privatly controled insitiution unconsitiutionaly ratified, is where the gov't borrows money. Jesus H. Christ! The gov't is borrowing its own money. WTF kind of sense is that. The gov't is suppose to have the power to create money itself. That way, providing the people still have control over the gov't, there will be no greed in the factors in the amount of money created. Hence, no inflation which is now, as i see it, leading to a new depression. I was so scared out of myself that i actually was thinking of leaving the country (while retaining citizenship of course) to UK or JP. God willing RP is the man to save this god-forsaken coutnry. If he fails, i think, unfortuantely, that the corps will win...takes control of govt...govt opress...freedom chipped away...1984...
    Sure paranoid, mabey a bit crazy, but who the fk thinks its not crazy that the people is afraid of its own govt, answer that....

    The most important thing about the Ron Paul Revolution, is that is not just about Ron Paul. It is about the message...FREEDOM. And Ron Paul, humble as he is, will be the first to admit to that. Those of us who are sick and tired of the corporate control, and manipulative mainstream media reporting, now have an honest candidate that for once in most of our lives we can get behind and do all we can to see that he gets elected. I for one am not about republican this or democrat that. All I want is the truth, and a candidate that tells it. All I need is a candidate that I KNOW cares about me, my family, my country, and our future. Not someone that will drag us deeper into the global agenda, driving our country deeper into debt with the world banksters. Not someone that would increase taxes to fund socialistic programs that only benefit the mega corporations of insurance companies and big pharma drug companies. America needs a man that will follow his oath to defend the constitution, not continue to destroy it, or drag us into there (unconstitutional without congressional declaration) war. And will halt the planned North American Union where our constitution would become null and void. Give me LIBERTY. Give me RON PAUL!!!

    A note to Ron Paul supporters; Copy this message and post it everywhere you can.

    Democrats which I have been one of my whole life need to be informed that they can have two candidates that are for the withdrawl of our troops from Iraq. They all agree that out of the pool of Republican candidates that Ron Paul above all represents their views.

    The Democrats if informed and organised can make a huge difference by voting in these (OPEN) republican primaries. They don't know it though, help educate them and we very may well shock the republican party by seeing a landslide victory in the states noted above.

    Have you seen how many straw polls this man wins? Although CNN (Clinton News Network) and Fox News don't pay attention to him now...THEY WILL! This is going to be the under dog story of the century when he wins. He's campaigning on the internet, hitting the young just like Bill Clinton did on MTV in the early 90's...He's ahead of the game!

    I respect that BUT don't go by what you're reading on CNN and Fox News. Research how many people show up to his events, his support within the Military, the straw polls he wins and how momentum is gaining...He wins every poll on foxnews.com, cnn.com, msnbc.com and it's still not enough according to these news industry's

    CNN only talks about Hillary and Obama and Fox only talks about Rudy and Fred....the supporters of those candidates will obviously watch the network promoting their candidate.

    Howard Dean had similar momentum and enthusiasm, but when it got closer to the wire, his grassroots efforts couldn't compete with the money raised by the Kerry campaign. Ron Paul won't raise enough money or get enough attention (as you cited) to win any major primaries -- or the general election.

    But remember Fef, Bill Clinton polled nationally at 2-3% about this time in the 1992 election cycle. Also, the winner of the Iowa Straw poll has only won the election a handful of times. Regardless, this campaign can’t really be compared to any in the past. Ron Paul is not just the “Howard Dean” of this election. Or the “Barry Goldwater.” The Internet is a bigger influence than it has ever been in the past. People are more unhappy than ever before with the current direction or the country. Ron Paul is getting support from “across the aisle” like no candidate in recent history. Instead of Howard Dean, I would compare him to Thomas Jefferson.

    You can't compare apples (Ron Paul) to rotten oranges (Howard Dean)
