Be careful * Why Ron was not invited to the Jewish Coalition debate.* And what his campaign can do about it!Submitted by LunaTech on Fri, 12/02/2011 - 07:52
So, of course ridiculously claiming that inviting Ron Paul to the event would be like inviting Obama will enrage Paul supporters. This is a totally predicable consequence... It's so obvious that it proves that the establishment, regardless of what group they claim to speak for, are doing this specifically to incite a reaction.
I have a feeling that this is actually an attempt to pull some anger out of Paul supporters so that the media can try to use it against him. Why would he be excluded? Why would they compare Ron Paul to Obama?
By now we know that Ron's position on Israel exercising personal responsibility, something that they are totally capable of, and respecting their sovereignty is not popular among the more religious branch of the GOP. But, this is like comparing a BMW to a pushcart.
So make no mistake.. This will be recognized in the news. And what they are trying to do is create dirt on Ron Paul by searching for supporters who might act foolishly so they can play the anti-Semitic card. After all, they have absolutely nothing to run against Ron on except his foreign policy and what his philosophy of liberty means for the drug war and associated programs. The fact of the matter is it's starting to wear out and they need something new. Don't give it to them.
So what would I propose the campaign do to this un-American exclusion of someone who is pro Israeli sovereignty and a clear front runner in the early election states? Keep campaigning. Hold a Rally for the Republic and Pro Israeli event! Again present positions on essential issues with particular emphasis on goals to be friends with Israel, as well as all other nations. This will definitely attract media attention and would get mention in the news. I could even see it on Drudge.. 'Paul excluded from debate - Rallies his own, Draws thousands.'.
Damn it feels good to be an optimist.
They want to tell us that we aren't republican. We will show them what a true republic is all about. Starting with Iowa. Don't let them set the precedent and tell ourselves that if we are excluded from debates we will pretend we can ignore it. It'll just happen again and again.
