Rep. Ron Pauls defense of Irans nuclear weapons program should surprise no one. The same resentment motivates Ron Paul and the Iranian leadership a paranoid hostility toward a world that is swiftly changing and has little mercy, and a Millenarian desire to return to a mythical, untroubled past. Get rid of the Federal Reserve, scourge the bankers, return to a gold standard and erect a wall around the United States and we will return to when? To 1957, when the Russians launched the first space satellite, alerting the United States to the danger that it might lose the Cold War? Then, as always, we prevailed, but by the skin of our teeth. Ron Pauls program is an American version of the Iranian desire to return to a world of Islamic purity that never existed, any more than did a golden age of American isolationism.

That’s a fairly low number compared with the number of Paulbot zots that rolled in before this thread over the last week or so. Add to that the Romneybot zots that had occurred, and it would be a significant number. Not sure the completion of the Iowa caucus has anything to do with the drop off in numbers as we have the NH and SC primaries coming up. Any ideas?
You’re right, the Paulbots have quieted down quite a bit since the Iowa caucus. They’re an unpredictable hive, and it’s hard to know what moves them to swarm at any particular time. Maybe there’s been a change in the phase of the moon that sent them drifting out on the tide with the shrimp. I don’t know if the’ll swarm again, though they might if their hero finishes second in NH.

That brings our January FReepathon pledge to a whopping $10 each, for a combined total of $70 between the seven of us on the pledge list.
I'm thinking we must might hit $100 by the end of the month.
EnglishCon has asked to be added retroactively to the beginning of the pledge, so he will be adding $10 to our total, bringing our combined pledge to $80. Thank you, EnglishCon!
For those keeping score at home, here's our list of January zotees to date. Gone, but not forgotten are:
Wave bye bye to Linda Liberty here:

Should I alert you when I find some Ronulans? I found a few yesterday. They’re still here.
I took notice of this post from JimRob yesterday in response to a RP supporter on the FReepathon thread who asked him if RP supporters were welcome on FR:
"Obnoxious flaming Paul spambots who cant control themselves often get the boot from FR."
I took that to mean that JimRob sees Ronulans as distinct from obnoxious Paulbots, which certainly makes him a much more even-handed wielder of power than I might be. That's probably a good thing.:-)
Do you think Jim Thompson would mind if we hit the "abuse" button on those we think might qualify as "obnoxious flaming Paul spambots who cant control themselves"? Or would it appear too close to the doctrine of unclean hands since we're part of the buck a zot paulbot gang?
(Courtesy ping to Mr. Robinson since I'm posting about him)
Aha, my understanding grows. If I find someone who might qualify as an obnoxious flaming Paul spambot, I will alert you. Absolutely Nobama would be better than me and so I ping him thusly.
Wave bye bye to JakeS here:
That brings our Freepathon pledge to $12 each, for a combined total of $96 for the month of January...so far.
Ping away, LJ!!
Wonder if we’ll make it to $20 each by the 31st.
You were right - this IS fun!
Possibly the first time ever that Paulbots have been useful too.
It looks like a promising thread to catch another Paulbot in our zapper. Gosh, I hope so! We only have 4 days left in the month to get us over the $100 hump. Pickings have been pretty slim this week.
Just damn. The one guy I was pretty sure might get a zot had 3 of his posts deleted, but he lived to tell the tale. Maybe the thread can snare another Paulbot though. I just bumped it, trying to wave a shiny object in their direction.
