Ron Paul OK with New Hampshire result!

Ron Paul has issued a statement concerning the flurry of reports about the vote-rigging allegations in the New Hampshire primary.

"In New Hampshire, while I would have hoped for a better result than eight percent, I am convinced that vote fraud played no role in this result. Rumors of vote fraud were investigated, and in the end they proved to be the result of errors in early media reports that were not reflected in the official numbers. In one notable case, when a campaign staff member contacted an individual who had on the evening of January 8 claimed that his vote had not been counted, the person said that he had made a mistake and that the next morning the error in reporting on a newspaper website had been corrected both in the media and -- most importantly -- in the official tally."

This election is proving to be an electrified one, partly due to the number of serious candidates for both Republic and Democrat parties. However, it is still the case that candidates like Ron Paul need to fight the media in getting a fair hearing. Paul is on the same level at the ballot box as Guiliani and Thompson, but they both these guys are more pro the existing political system. Change is not something that easily flows from their lips.
Ron Paul is the only true Conservative with the ability to lead effective and lasting change. That will be good, not only for Americans, but other countries too.
