    We don’t need a Department of Consumer Affairs. We can form our own. People Power Price Control.

    All the oil companies change prices at the same time. We can target the giant, Exxon Mobil, the rest will get the message. Just pass up Exxon Mobil and get your gas on the other side of the street or on down the road. With a little effort, we can get big results.We need to fight back at the pump.

    Let big oil take the loss if they can’t negotiate a better deal with OPEC. They are the only one to blame. It is time to stop the BS about who is to blame for high oil prices.

    Inflation is an euphemism for theft. We can stop it! Get this message out. Put it on Facebook, Twitter and Email it to the News Media and your friend. It can be the shot heard around the world with your help! We don’t have to take it. We can target them one at a time. Visit the Internet Free Press. I will keep you posted.

    The oil companies are fixing prices. If they don’t, why do all the prices change at the same time? Isn’t this a violation of the law?

    Dear Mr. King:

    Before I begin with the issue at hand, I would like you to know that I respect you as a fair-minded reporter. However, during your discussion with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus you had the perfect opportunity to prove that some of his statements were grossly misleading, particularly his comment about the RNC’s adherence to its rules. Following one of his comments, I was hoping that you would show the video about the apparent Republican delegate fraud that occurred on March 10th in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia.

    In response to the video, I sent an email to the attention of Chairman Priebus, entered a post on the GOP website and made a submission to CNN iReport. Essentially my response was as follows:

    “The RNC has a responsibility to ensure that state GOP leaders adhere to its party’s rules. The RNC must investigate and respond to the numerous allegations of 2012 primary election fraud. Particular attention needs to be given immediately to the apparent Republican delegate fraud of March 10th in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, with serious consideration to the removal of county chairman Matt Brewster and nominating committee chairman John Elliot, and order the convention to reconvene. Personally, at this time I’m not even a Ron Paul supporter, but I hesitate to support any GOP candidate if the RNC continues to ignore violations of its rules which were intended to support the process of a democracy!”

    MSNBC recently aired a report about alleged fraud in connection with the GOP primary elections in Maine.

    Regardless of party affiliation or of GOP presidential candidate preference, the GOP’s apparent ongoing intent to suppress support for Ron Paul is an outrage in which the principles of the American democratic process are being sadly compromised.

    The appalling actions, or lack thereof, of certain state RNC leaders and the RNC should be aired on CNN; the public relies on respected national news agencies for the truth. The appropriate individuals need to be held accountable and questionable actions rectified by the RNC. All national political parties need to demonstrate a position of integrity with zero tolerance for fraudulent actions… the future of our country depends on it!
