Media Blackout and Distortion of Ron PaulSubmitted by fjehlik on Wed, 03/28/2012 - 11:58
Well, the video speaks for itself. We grassroots organized a group to March in the Chicago St. Patrick's day parade. We had Veterans for Ron Paul on point, a classic car, a home built float, 5000 Brochures, 1000 RP Slim Jims, kids for Ron Paul, and 1700 chocolate gold coins to pass out to the kids. Oh, and Lady Liberty, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, John Adams and George Washington.
The media ensured everyone that no presidential candidate was represented. Apparently, we followers wear the same invisible super secret cloak Ron Paul adorns.
i quickly counted over 175 before we started. In addition, a Republican friend of mine (who does not support Ron Paul but is active in local politics) sent me this message the next day:
I just had a nice conversation with one of my political mentors David. I've been doing political parades with him for over 10 years. He said your parade last weekend was one of the best he's seen. His three year old really liked the chant "end the fed". Good work gents. Keep up the good fight!
So there you have it; We didn't happen. Neither are any of the delegates taking local districts. Neither is Ron Paul's popularity.
That's the kind of not happening i can get behind. Keep the faith and keep pushing- you aren't alone anymore.
