This is another "short one". Ron Paul makes writing articles easy. Just let him speak for himself, or let the people speak for themselves.

Ever wanted to take America's real temperature? Ever wanted to know what Americans are really thinking about their government and their media? Just read this. It's a random segment of contuous "comments" (what a nice euphemism!) posted by Paul supporters on ABC's web site after ABC.com first refused to list him as a participant of the debate while listing others who were not even there, then relented to an unwavering outburst of contempt and added him, whereupon Ron Paul garnered 89% of the vote within hours.

Then, ABC.com topped all of this off by insinuating that "It's evidence of something -- either passionate supporters, active supporters, or just one very savvy supporter who's able to vote several thousand times,' Greenberger said. 'If it leads to one or two stories in the mainstream media, that could lead to a bounce online, and could lead to some fundraising successes."

That really got Paul supporters going and drove them to post comments in an uninterrupted fashion, which then drove ABC.com to start deleting their posts, even though the posts were perfectly legal. No 'nettiquette' violations (mostly).

READ WHAT AN EVER-GROWING PORTION OF AMERICA IS THINKING:

Stop deleting my posts. What i said is true. Ron Paul will win and I am still voting for him whether you delete my comments or not. Stop it you fascists.

I am not a libertarian. I have always voted republican. I just read what all the republicans running for president stand for, and Ron Paul is the one that stands for what most americans want and need. Our freedom for one. This has really opened my eyes to what is going on in america. Very,Very Sad! Be FAIR ABC report the real news.

MSNBC's poll uses an IP Filter. How do you think people are forging there votes.. Is a small number of Ron Paul suppoters voting again and again? No, most likely anti-war democrats are voting for Ron Paul.. however does there vote not count? They are Americans, and they may want to vote for Obama overall.. but in the debate.. they think Ron Paul won. The vote is not solely for mindless Republican neo-cons.. but for everyone. I'm for Paul this year! Paul in 08!

Ron Paul has my vote. If there was still any doubt about what our mainstream media was all about, that doubt was removed during the run-up to the Iraq war. "Viral marketing"... give me a break. "We the people" are sick of the usual crooks and liars that we are given to vote for. Ron Paul has the stones to tell it like it is, and that genuinely impressed America. ABC, you and the rest should be ashamed of yourselves. Even the Diane Rehm show on NPR discussed the MSNBC poll, and ignored Ron Paul! Man, when NPR behaves like the mainstream media, you know we're in big trouble! I emailed NPR, and urge you to do the same. Peace.

Ron Paul is harnessing the tens of millions of voters who usually don't vote in Socialist A vs Socialist B elections. Only bribed mainstream media is keeping him down.

your comment on Ron Paul's myspace, Last week he had 6,000 since the debate he now over 12,000 Hillary has 57969 friends. Barack Obama has 54813 friends. John McCain has 29520 friends. What are you scared of, Report the story, It's America's decision on who they vote for, Not yours by leaving out those who are running. Lets us decide

I cannot believe that ABC cannot believe that Ron Paul has so much support. Who do you want, Hilary? Please... Ron Paul is the only candidate running that cares about the people and the Constitution. The only "viral" about what is going on is that supporting Ron Paul is contagious. You can't help but want to support someone that cares so deeply for this country, as opposed to how much money they can steal from us.

This proves that ABC is not a legitemate news network. They would like to pick our leaders for us people. Rick Klien is a scumbag propagandist.

Get real, ABC. This pitiful article on Ron Paul is obviously a "hit" piece. Is there a single outspoken "mainstream" journalist who is *not* pushing an agenda? Count me as one more fed-up American who will be voting for Ron Paul. It's past time for some radical changes in DC; and the first step is to boot the Democrats and Republicans in power, and downsize the state. ABC can report the facts or get left in the dust.
