Et tu, Mr. Puplava? I thought you weren't part of the MSM
In this week's (5/21) Big Picture (24 minutes in) he has a q-call about Ron Paul http://www.netcastdaily.com/fsnewshour.htm - he responded: (24:50)
You know dave, he would be my favorite candidate for the presidecy, he's one of the few people in congress that understands, he'd make a great president, but at this point independent candidates have not done very well and I don't think we're quite ready, it's, it's basically we're locked into this two-party system, unfortunately and, you know, I'd love to vote for Ron Paul but it would just be sort of a vote that you know probably woudn't get counted because - ah - it would take away from the republican candidates. I just don't think he has a chance although he's a bright guy - one of the brightest figures in congress in my opinion, but we're not ready for Ron Paul yet...
Ron Paul is running AS A REPUBLICAN. Not an independent. He is working WITHIN the TWO PARTY SYSTEM. How can you take away from republican candidates by voting for a republican who is running in the primaries or caucus?
Doesn't he read the news?
If he thinks he doesn't have a chance for other reasons, fine, let him explain, but Paul isn't running 3rd party, or as an independent.
I think an email or call to clarify or correct things is in order.
