    Big win: Ron Paul takes San Diego Straw Poll

    "It is no wonder our country is going bankrupt, it is run by lawmakers who are lawbreakers," Gordon said and continued with, "We will not stand by or compromise to the direct contradiction of our freedom, this present government."

    "It is sad that we are considered rebels, but really we are patriots who stand up for The Constitution with the powerful tool of the internet in which we cannot be stopped, we are too many," Gordon said.

    As in the words of Thomas Jefferson, "A little rebellion now and then...is a necessary for the sound health of government," and , "Every generation needs a new revolution."

    "We will continue with Ron Paul our leader, but Ron Paul is only a man, this is a revolution, let it not be said that we did nothing, let our voices be heard," Gordon said.

    You would be surprised. I live in the bay area, ca. and now especially after the last debate everyday someone will ask me about Ron Paul (from my car and t-shirt) or someone will honk and give me a thumbs up. Some hang out the window screaming "Ron Paul!!!"

    You realize that straw polls are irrelevant, right?

    The only voting that matters is when things start up in Iowa this January.

    Many Republicans & Democrats do despise Ron Paul because he's not a Big Government guy. And that really does piss off many in both parties. The Republicans are perfectly content continuing to be Democrat-Light. They want no part of a real Conservative. They just want Dr. Paul to shut up and go way because he wont conform. He wont be the old phony checkpant Republican they want him to be. But don't lose heart,we are making progress. Constitutional Conservatism is on the rise. The old checkpants are now on the run. Their numbers are thinning. So keep the faith. We're winning.

    To my surprise, San Diego is considered Mitt Romney's turf. Well.. not anymore, haha.
