2012 GOP Race shaped entirely around ignoring Ron PaulSubmitted by JoshArizona on Thu, 10/13/2011 - 13:39
The entire GOP Race and media coverage of it is focused around one thing, that is ignoring Ron Paul.
They have to manufacture multiple candidates just to keep him down.
It started with Bachmann, she imploded. Ron moved up.
So they introduce Perry. Perry imploded Ron moved up.
Then they try to get Christie to run, he didn't.
So they take Herman Cain, focus a tsunami of media attention on an insignificant straw poll that only 2 candidates participated in and cost $170 to vote in. They purposely push him as the new flavor of the month, they create him out of nothing, and ignore Ron Paul and his 2 important recent straw poll wins.
If that wasn't bad enough, I wake up this morning and the headline on Drudge is Gingrich! He has at the top of the page, a picture of Gingrich and a link to a poll showing Gingrich as the new 3rd place candidate! This poll puts Ron in 5th place, where we were 4 years ago! It's completely absurd!
The media is way beyond just ignoring Ron, they are actively trying to destroy his candidacy.You can see this in the debates too. They purposely give questions intended for Ron to other candidates,they purposely ask questions that attempt to show him in a bad light, they purposely skip him on foreign policy segments and try to paint other candidates as the anti-war vote. They even tried to use Garry Johnson against him two debates ago.
What we have going on here is criminal! I can not stomach much more of this!
