There is a war going on folks.
No missiles, no bombs, no bullets, but a war none the less.
This is a war against democracy, a war against free speech.
Ever since Ron Pauls amazing showing the other night on the Republican debate, people have been pouring into the polls, forums, and other places on the net to demonstrate their support for Congressman Paul and the ideas he has put forth, and to share their thoughts about the debate.
At first, the 'Big Money Media' like ABC and Yahoo made an attempt to accomadate this feedback by giving us a place to post our comments about their articles.
It would seem that as soon as it became clear that there was a ground swell of support for Mr. Paul they went into 'bury' mode.
Finally in desperation, realizing that there was no way to stem the tide, they started blocking favorable comments for Mr. Paul. When that didn't work, they finally started removing and shutting down these forums and comment sections of their websites.
This naked attempt to silence the voice of the American people and control what is said about the candidates by the media elites, is nothing less then outrageous.
"ABC News Silences Posters ... As of yesterday, I can no longer view comments on stories at ABC News. I had joined members of the Digg community yesterday in commenting on an ABC News story about Ron Paul. In order to do this, I created a user ID on the ABCNEWS.COM website. Today I went to read the news on ABC's web site, and wanted to comment on another article that I thought was interesting. When I added my comments and tried to post, I was asked to log in to the ABC News site, so I did. The news article re-appeared, but now without any comments section at all. Not only can I not post comments on ABC News, but I can not read comments on ABC News stories while I am logged in. As soon as I log out of the web site, I am able to read posted comments. ABC has effectively silenced me as a contributor to their discussions for my actions on the Ron Paul story that I posted about yesterday."

"Yahoo news took down their bulletin boards a while back because it was becoming impossible for the Freepers and the army psyops guys to manufacture any credible semblance for Bushevik support among the posters. When the overwhelming volume of posts became anti-Bush and anti-war, Yahoo took the boards down just like ABC just did."

"Exact same thing happened to me. ABC News does not want our comments and that is why they are playing games on their website by not posting comments. We must continue to use alternative media. Here is what I tried to post on the statist ABC News website:
"Congressman Ron Paul is a fine gentleman who believes that politicians should actually follow the U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Such behavior - following the Constitution - would be news to most current members of Congress and the Executive branches of government. Perhaps we should listen to what Ron Paul has to say."
Hardly the ravings of some political hot head !
The zombies in front of their TVs watching '24 Hours' aren't going to.
The idiots in the malls working on their 5 credit card to buy that Chinese junk they don't need, aren't going to.
The folks sitting around reading the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal damn sure aren't going to.
The Internet is the last bastion of democracy in this country, and if you want to keep a 'free Internet' then it's time to roll your sleeves up and get in this fight !
It's time to get 'creative' and start pushing these school yard bully's back where they belong, because if we don't ... (Censored!)
