More Ignorance of Ron Paul on NBC

I am watching NBC Today show and Rachel Maddow is on right now. They are talking about "Tea Party Favorites" and spent all this time talking about Bachman vs Sarah Palin and then Pawlenty and then she talks about literally every other candidate, Cain, Romney, Christie, etc and not even one mention of Ron Paul.

This is a problem the campaign staff neglects

Ron Paul has NO help from his campaign staff in media events. They should have spokespeople lined up to be interviewed in the press, but instead, they let Ron Paul do it all by himself. The media does not want Ron Paul, and they consider him a dangerous enough threat that they are going out of their way to leave him out of the discussion. The only way to combat this is to enlist dignified spokepeople who will get in the news and fire back, and I don't see this happening.

Turning of the TV has improved the quality of my life

I believe, until everyone who really supports Ron Paul comes out of the closet and places the bumper stickers and yard signs out, we are wasting our time with MSM who ignors us with great pleasure.

Rachel Maddow is vile.

Rachel Maddow is vile. No scruples at all. She is not anti-war. She is anti-R.

She made nice-nice with Ron Paul when she saw him only as a thorn in the GOP's side. Same thing with Rand. When it became apparent that Rand might beat the D candidate, she turned on him. Now that Ron Paul genuinely threatens Obama, she has turned on him too. She will either revile him or ignore him. Ignoring comes first.

..and on MSNBC yesterday too...

I couldn't tell you the name of the show because I'd never heard of it before, but when they did the analysis of the GOP 2012 field they mentioned that nobody has distinguished themselves on foreign policy. They said the only difference between any of the candidates was how long they'd take to get the troops out of Afghanistan. Yeah, it's absolutely deliberate. MSNBC is the progressive counter to Fox and they wouldn't want their handful of viewers to know there's a Republican who is more anti-war than Obama (which isn't even really saying much).

its not ignorance

its intentional omission, this is going on everywhere the monolithic estamblishment has influence. When you notice this being done take note and understand from that point foward that that media outlet is tainted and view everything else you get from it with a much more sceptical eye.

Main stream media is a sea of lies and a black hole of omissions

Much of this is accomplished with the reporters not being invited to the party.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

From what I understand there is

From what I understand there is no "Tea Party" instead there are several "Tea Parties" all over the country, they are independent entities each with their own way of thinking, although they may have some similarities here and there they can be completely different from each other.

RP: "My first name is Ron and my last name is Paul"

SP: "Wow, you have two first names. Nobody is going to elect 'Ricky Bobby' for President."

RP: "Do you care about anything important?"

SP:"One time I killed a moose and took a picture with it."

We Are Not The Tea Party

We are the Liberty Movement. The Tea Party, for the most part, is a bunch of theocratic, war mongering statists. They have little or no understanding of libertarian philosophy. Actually I doubt most have any philosophy at all.

Their positions are determined by beliefs. For some it is their belief in American Exceptionalism. For some it is their religious faith. But in the end they have done very little thinking about the effects of forcing their beliefs on others both foreign and domestic.

There are some issues where the liberty movement agrees with the Tea Party but in general they are two different animals. Given time we can convert some of the tea partiers to libertarianism. Most are, in the short run, not going to understand.

The Ron Paul followers started the "Tea Party" but it no longer belongs to us.

Good

Well said.

I agree...

avoid the distractions.... focus on Liberty!

SPOT ON!

Great analysis Windcharmer.
