Unless he crashes and burns in the next two days, or Newt Gingrich’s camp has some ammo we’re not aware of, Mitt Romney will be the winner of Saturday’s Republican caucuses in Nevada. In addition, The Donald was slated to show up for a midday appearance Thursday in Las Vegas to hunt for his shadow and endorse Romney’s campaign.  —KA

The Washington Post:

After his strong victory in Tuesday’s Florida primary, a win in Nevada would solidify Romney’s front-runner status, demonstrating both his geographic range and the depth of his organization nationwide.

Both Romney and Gingrich plan a day of campaigning in Nevada, with Gingrich holding a morning rally at a manufacturing facility in Las Vegas and a roundtable session with Hispanics, and Romney campaigning in Las Vegas before flying to Reno for another public event.

Romney will be endorsed by business mogul Donald Trump, according to several people involved in Romney’s campaign official. The announcement will come at 12:30 p.m. Pacific time (3:30 p.m. Eastern) at Trump International, the businessman’s five-star hotel.

How come all America knows how to do anymore is wage war and meddle in other nations affairs?

Ron Pauls position on ending the military industrial state is more popular than any poll or owned media is willing to admit.

At stake are all the defense contracts throughout the states where military bases exist and where bombs, tanks, planes and warships are built, Yet the infrastructure crumbles and schools and communitity centers face continuing cutbacks.

Pauls position on ending the welfare state is one of letting the states deal with it, after all they are the ones on the front lines and by the 10th amendment are the ones responsible for fixing it, not the federal government.

He scares the bejesus out of the status quo and interestingly enough shines a light on how bad the media and our democratic voting ability are manipulated by ‘others’.  Pay attention.

Where is this “lefty” media of which you speak? MSNBC? please, they spend all their days walking along the center line. CNN? Roland Martin is the closest thing to a liberal they ever put on the air.

As for Ron Paul, its the CONSERVATIVE media that have buried his wrinkly old ass. If old Ron would just come out in favor of american imperialism, mix that in with his de-regulate and eliminate the federal government garbage, well shit, he’d look like Jesus Christ in a brooks brothers suit.

Every person left in the USA with half a brain knows that we have already been living in Ron Pauls america for the last thirty years or so. Lower taxes, no regulation, no oversite, every man for himself. How’s that working out for us?

I don’t give two shits if Paul is against the wars or not. You have to look at his whole body work. When you do, you see that he is just a senile old leftover from the John Birch society. Ronny Ray-Guns without the charm.

Do you notice how the lefty media just completely
blacks-out Ron Paul?  They do their best to pretend
he doesn’t even exist.  That’s because the entire
political message of the four more years of
Reagan/Dubya/Obama is based on throwing mud at the
Republicans.  The Democrats have nothing at all to
offer anyone to the left of Reagan these days, so all
they can do is to ridicule their opponents. 

So, they play the heck out of Newt Gringrich into a
much more serious threat than he ever really was,
while at the same time trying their best to ignore
the anti-Obama’s-wars and the anti-Obama’s-empire
campaign of Ron Paul.

If you love being ruled by Wall Street and the Dept
of Homeland Security, and if you love ever expanding
wars and ever growing defense budgets, then vote for
Obama or Romney.  If you want something different,
vote for someone different.

When are these idiotic voting zombies going to awaken from their trance and realize that the Romney’s Grinches (purposely misspelled), Obamahorror’s and the rest of their globalist ilk are all the same pathological lying, greedy criminals that are responsible for the collapse of this country, not to mention numerous others and the incessant wars not just against other nations, but freedom, liberty and life itself? Wake up people! By voting for these fools you’re only perpetuating the crimes they commit and the misery that it produces, including your own. You can’t complain when you continuously vote them into office and positions of power and in turn they only disappoint and worsen everyone’s condition save their own. By voting, by playing the game, you are in essence empowering them and aiding and abetting in your own doom. How many times and by how many different feet do you have to be kicked with before you realize you’re the ones supplying them the shoes in which to apply pain to your ignorant a**es? I hate to be crass, but I’m pissed that you people keep willingly participating in a game that’s rigged to lend support to the very system that causes you to complain about the societal ills in which we face. You will not get a solution to the problems we confront from the same demons that help to create them. PLEASE - WAKE THE HELL UP! Then again, maybe you are awake and the slimy media is up to what they do best - lie and/or misinform.

The newt never thought he’d make it this far. Heck, he doesn’t even have organizations in half the states.

He was only in it to sell books and solidify his 401K. He never thought for a minute that a bunch of repug rubes out there would take him seriously.

Jeebus, if it wasn’t for superpac money, none of the schmucks except Mittens would even be running.
