    From what I understand, there hasn't been a confirmation or a denial, either way.

    There also seems to be conflicting reports about WHO exactly makes the decision in this case, the NH GOP, or Fox News. There doesn't seem to be a straight answer coming from either.

    Regardless though, ONCE AGAIN i'll say this...THIS IS AMERICA. A news organization, especially one as influential as an MSM outlet such as Fox, not including certain candidates, is WRONG.

    If it's Fox making the decision, shame on them, and shame on anyone who supports it. If it's the NH GOP, then they'll be getting their dose of discontent from plenty of people.

    Why does the establishment keep trying to hold RP down? What's the big fucking deal? He's not going to win ANYWAY, right? So why not INCLUDE his 'kooky' ass? What is everyone so damn afraid of?

    EDIT: As a sidenote, I believe this is supposed to be held at St. Anselm College...

    That may just be the biggest support base, as far as colleges go, that RP has. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of people who attend St. Anselm that are RP supporters. I've personally seen it with my own eyes. Don't expect many people to even show up to this event if RP is left out.

    Sounds like you've got more inside info. Let us know what you can. For my part I'm inclined to believe that Fox News would do such a thing, but hey.

    All I really have to go on is browsing online. I get a lot of my info about what's going on in the RP world from dailypaul.com and ronpaulforums.com.

    There are a lot of people at those places that are way more informed than me.

    I actually thought that's where you got this from, because the 2 threads you made about RP are both some of the more discussed topics at Daily Paul.

    I wouldn't put it past Fox News OR any state's GOP party leadership to pull this kind of shit. They've been doing it since Ron announced his candidacy.

    The only thing that's going to stop this shit from continually happening is for Ron to win or place high in some primaries. THAT'LL shut em the fuck up.

    First up, Iowa in 2 days. I have to admit, I'm concerned about that Bollyn piece.

    Why can't ballots just be counted by hand in public? How is this a democracy if ballots are counted behind closed doors, away from public scrutiny? We're supposed to just TRUST people to do the right thing? Come on.

    I need to educate myself on exactly how the Iowa system works.

    Please don't stop at Wikipedia, though. If you really want to know, you should make some phone calls at least. Wikipedia isn't 100% iron-clad accurate. Any idiot can go in there and edit it to their liking.

    What I do know, is that there will be plenty of people keeping an eye on the voting process during the entire course of this election cycle. There are also safeguards that will be implemented to make sure the final vote count is accurate and truthful. I hope so, anyway.

    :clap2:

    If the public can be videoed and monitored every damn place you look today, then why can't the voting process and the subsequent counting of paper ballots be under public scrutiny via the camera?

    Any questions could be settled right on the spot locally anywhere in the process in full public view...thus avoiding any after-election nonsense.

    So when the Dems refused to participate in debates on Fox, what was your opinion then?
