The disinformation will cost ron paul the election , he needs to use the mediaSubmitted by guiltyspark on Sun, 07/17/2011 - 18:05
Simple fact is i run into people online daily who say "oh that guy wants to repeal the civil rights act" or "oh ya , shutting down the DOE would mean all public schools would close down."
The ignorance of the american people is astounding when it comes to politics in general , all it usually boils down to is a popularity contest and ron paul sadly wont be able to win this election using conventional state campaigning.
If anybody on this forum has direct access to ron paul or his campaign people , we need him to start educating the people on his plans. People dont know what the "Fed" is , so when they hear him talking about shutting everything down people get scared and think he is a radical.
People need to know how his plans will change the economy and how it will benefit the people.
Why cant he spend a big chunk of his money for an hour long special on fox or cnn or something where he explains all of these plans out so more simple people can understand.
Because right now on fox while he appears often , he is overshadowed by people like bachmann and whoever else is running.
He wont win this with word of mouth alone , and when he explains his plans he never explains the outcomes of the decisions so people not familiar with his policies will think he is a radical because other canidates dont mention ANY of these things in their debates.
Does anyone have access to him to inform him of this?
