Business Insider: Where The Heck Is Ron Paul?


It struck me while I was listening to NPR's Morning Edition (well, it struck me many times before, but this was just too much).

The report (listen here) on the GOP debate in the evening covered just about everything you can cover in four-and-a-half minutes: the debate's focus on the economy; Sarah Palin's and Chris Christie's exit from the race; Herman Cain's from-the-outside strategy; Mitt Romney's 25% ceiling; and of course his “Mormon problem” as raised by Rick Perry—“this is something we're watching,” said Mara Liasson, NPR's national political correspondent.

I mean, come on. She also discussed how Perry is preparing for the debate to make up ground he lost in the last three debates. OK, great, we need to know this.

But where the heck is Ron Paul?

He is the one who did well in those debates. He won the most recent straw poll. He raised $8 million in the last three months from over 100,000 supporters. He is not some Tom, Dick, and Harry. He is a real candidate, unlike Palin, who dropped out, but he doesn't even get mentioned as a participant.

You don't need to be a supporter of him to be outraged. A Perry supporter or an ardent Democrat who listened to this report would also want to know that there is a legitimate candidate named Ron Paul.

My response...

In the 1930s, Walter Duranty was the NY Times' correspondent in Moscow. Over 20,000 women and children were dying of hunger in the Ukraine, but Duranty liked Stalin, so he would not report on this human disaster. The media today is full of Walter Durantys, liars for hire.

If you think the media's campaign reporting lacks substance and critical content, what about all the other stuff that they report on? In Pakistan, where they are constantly subjected to death and destruction rained upon them by the CIA's hellfire missiles, hatred for America is growing by the day, but you would never know that from media reports.

Only once in a lifetime do we have an opportunity to vote for a truly We the People candidate. The establishment is not too happy with this prospect, hence their efforts to marginalize Ron Paul, but we are more in number and they will find that out sooner than they think.

Ron Paul's support is deep and across all ages, genders, races, sects, cults and atheists. His diverse following contrasts sharply against the Sunday morning congregations that follow the rest of the GOP Politburo's favorites.

If you want more wars, more debt, more crony capitalism, more persecution of poor communities of color through the war on drugs, more central economic planning, more unconstitutional laws and regulations, more graft, and more pandering to special interests then Ron Paul is not your guy.

If you want a president whose special interests are We the People and the Constitution, who has a track record of integrity, honesty and consistency that will leave you speechless, who has a true understanding of monetary policy, economics, foreign affairs, health care and civil liberties, who is incorruptible and uncompromisable, who is hated by the establishment, but much loved by the people of all shades and sizes then Ron Paul is your only choice, a man with no equal among his peers.

███ ███ will prevail.

Although ███ ███ is persistently ignored by the press, fortunately, the internet is helping spread his message.
Soon ███ ███ will be second in the polls as Cain folds like a deck of cards. Then it will be ███ ███ against Romney, and Romney I don't think stands a chance with true Republicans.


This has been my direction of thought also for the last three weeks. As long as we as supporters do not give up! We must believe and cheer until they finally cross the wire. It may be a photo finish but it will be Ron Paul by a head.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I will use your comment idea all over the internet

Thanks antiwardoc.

This bothered me SO much last

This bothered me SO much last election, after I finally realized it really was happening. I suggested something then, but no one wanted to do it, so they probably still don't BUT, the stations BY LAW have to send their complaint file in total, to anyone who asks for it. It is in the FCC laws. This file is BIG and would be a real pain for them to mail it out. Too bad, they HAVE to. I suggest making a formal complaint to the FCC (again like we all did last time) and all of us then request this file.

details, please

Since you know about this, will you please post the relevant portion of the law/regulation?

Also, an example request letter would be helpful.

Thank you

Yes. Once the country survived "Yellow Journalism."

Today we do battle against Blind, Deaf, Dumb Pravda journalism.

we have to fight this

I am doing this right now at Occupy Toronto protest giving away leaflets and educating people -- so far from about 50 people only one person was negative.
People here even socialists and communists love Ron Paul -- it's amazing!
