I’ve been keeping an eye on the number of Facebook fans of the 501c4 corporate presidential nomination called Americans Elect, out of curiosity more than anything else. Today, I noticed a spike at www.facebook.com/americanselect:
The messages they’re leaving aren’t expressing appreciation for Americans Elect. They’re applauding Americans Elect’s opposition: the stable of Republican presidential candidates and the current president, Barack Obama:
Ron Paul anyone??
Cain or Romney. Preferably Cain, Cause i think he stands a better chance of beating Obama.
Ron Paul in 2012!!!!
JON HUNTSMAN 2012!
I like myself.
Vote for honesty and integrity in 2012. Vote Ron Paul and help change the direction this country is heading in now. If you are fed up with politics as usual and not being heard by the politicians in Washington this is your chance to be heard and stood up for. If you want to see the purchasing power of your hard earned dollars stop dwindling then the choice is clear. Ron Paul. If you are tired of the endless senseless wars, nation building, and being the world’s policeman then the choice is clear. Ron Paul
Ron Paul for President 2012
Michele Bachmann for 2012. My opinion since she still supports our God that this country was founded on and is against same sex marriage. She has some other good views. It also surprised me that I decided on a woman candidate. No offense ladies, but she does have good ideas.
RON PAUL .. SMALLER GOVERNMENT.. WE CAN ONLY SAVE A COUNTRY WHEN THE POWER IS IN HUMAN HANDS NOT CORPORATE CLAWS.. COMMON SENSE GO READ!!
RON PAUL 2012 Unless you want more of the same
I like Ron Paul..He wants to elminate the IRS and other useless money sucking bereaucratic agancies and institute a national sales tax.
Jon Huntsman 2012
RON PAUL 2012
Ron Paul 21012!
and so on and so forth.
Americans Elect’s Facebook page has been absolutely flooded with these comments, made in rapid-fire succession, some with tongue-in-cheek and some seemingly not. I have no idea what this means, whether it’s a strategic move by Ron Paul fans to swing the Americans Elect process or whether it’s just some people having a bit of fun. It will be interesting to see if they keep it up and how Americans Elect might react to the scripted or unscripted action.
