FOX News.com Kills Link to Poll Showing Ron Paul As Clear Winner of Last Night’s Debate


Link takes you to a blank page

Although Congressman Ron Paul was allowed virtually no time to speak last night, he still emerged as the winner of last night’s debate on a FOX News.com poll. But when you click the link “Who Won the Debate?” on the YouDecide archive page that displayed the poll originally, a blank white page comes up that says, “No content item selected” in the upper left hand corner of the screen. This link takes you directly there.

I wonder if the reason behind the killed link is because before the link was killed, Ron Paul had nearly 40% of the vote, making him the clear winner. Here is a screen shot of the poll obtained by PrisonPlanet after the poll had reached over 70,000 votes.



Here is a screen shot of what you see now when you click the link



This may be a glitch and it may be restored later on, but for now, it is being blocked for some reason.

is there somewhere to watch the entire thing?

Q1 - what would you do without state-education?

What would happen to people who couldn't afford private education?

Nobody would argue state-education system was perfect - but that's no reason to abolish it, especially if the alternative is private education, which would exclude most people, most likely.

I would like a response - I think anyone supporting RonPaul really needs to be able to make one.

Abolition of state-education (as flawed as it might be) is a very serious deal.

State education is probably the single most effective way to combat ignorance and poverty and seems easily the most viable option to promote democracy, self-realisation and to provide opportunity for the poor.

Even a poor state-education is infinitely better than none. It's something that can always be improved, it will never satisfy. But that shouldn't allow people to argue for its abolition - at least nmot without having a very good, solid alternative.

So what is it?

Personally I am very happy that wealthy people must pay taxes to support the education (and healthcare) of the poor. The liberty and opportunity of the poor must be weighed against that of the rich. What's the alternative?
