I like articles

like these that repudiate the MSM's exclusion of Ron Paul.

To me it seems like the MSM is losing its grip on the minds of the masses.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

And the media is killing their own credibility

I don't think they realize that. They figure they still have control over the people, when in reality many people are waking up to the media distortion and disinformation.

We have the freedom of the Internet to thank for that.

But it's also a reason why the establishment and government is trying to infringe upon the Internet now too.

Wait till Willard gets the Huntsman surge! ALL those fanatical

Wait till Willard gets the Huntsman surge! ALL those fanatical Jon Supporters!

"Jon Jon Jon Jon Jon Jon Jon!"

*Ahem* "I quit. Like a lil biznitch."

"Oh. Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!"

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Actually, I bet more Huntsman people will come our way

Than Mitt's. Jon Huntsman made it a main point to emphasize that he was different than Romney, and some of his policies are closer to Ron Paul's.

Ron Paul actually praised Huntsman on national TV for being thoughtful when he was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Yeah. Then Jon slaps Ron in

Yeah. Then Jon slaps Ron in the face with the muncharian commercial hit piece. Thanks hunt.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

Right, but interestingly supporters can be fickle

At least for the other candidates. That means they can switch over very easily, regardless of what their candidate tells them to do after he quits.

We've seen support for other candidates yo-yo up and down.

"Thanks hunt"... think you

"Thanks hunt"...

think you spelled it wrong

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Thank you for picking up on

Thank you for picking up on that. ;)

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

Ah, now I see.

Muncharian commercial?

Would a Doritos commercial be considered a muncharian commercial?

I love the photo

And if I am not mistaken, he got a better fitting suit. He looks quite sharp in that photo, and it is good to see him smile.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

In the end, it did not gain enough traction to get anywhere.

So I guess those of us that like it are a select few, or it got drowned out by other stuff. I would have liked everyone here to see this photo, it's inspiring.


He does not like to waste money on new suits if the old ones aren't worn out. I'll bet some are many, many years old.

If you can imagine that frugality applied to the federal government...

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

very much like Sam Walton,

very much like Sam Walton, who drove that old Ford truck everywhere he went, and Warren Buffet, who has lived in the same house for like 50 years.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

That's what I figured years ago too.

His suits always bothered me a little bit when I was a new supporter. I thought, "why not get a nice fitting suit?" They are often very loose and too big on the shoulders. He wears better fitting shirts now, but I think maybe he just sticks with older jackets that maybe fit him better when he was younger, simply because they are not worn out yet.

I don't really even care anymore.

It's Ron Paul's message of liberty that matters.

Ah, good. I was beginning to think I was alone here.

I couldn't figure it out, I thought maybe everyone else thought the photo showed too much character, was too close up, or maybe it just looked too happy instead of serious.

To me it looks much better than the re-colored photo at the top of Daily Paul. That one reminds me of those old black and white movies that were recolored resulting in a strange skin tones that are just off and unreal, kind of surreal.

Nobody else likes that photo?

Too happy looking?
