My theory of Dr. Paul's recent interviews.

Dr. Paul has been on TV ALOT recently. He is taking his usual stance of no-compromise, liberty first.

If I listen to the words he says, and more importantly, the host of the show he is on, I begin to see a strategy come into view.

On msnbc, he asked the punishment for people who violate the Constitution. He also asked why Republicans were defending Obama.


On Piers Morgan, he asked the same.

He is using the establishment media against them. I dont have any clue why they would even let him on camera knowing full well what he will say.

My hypothesis is this: The plan of using the media against the establishment that censored him to bring it down. If our country lasts until 2016, he will have 4 years of public voice, on top of the his congressional record to speak to the masses and get the votes for the presidency.

What are your thoughts?

RP for Pres?

When was the last time the majority of the American people made a really good choice, as far as elections or popular opinion on any subject? I don't know if it's happened in my lifetime. We might be close, but we aren't quite there yet.

I think it is a 180 from that

Ron Paul is asked to interview so that he, and those like him (like us) can be polarized as being the ones to be "watched". Remember, every propaganda channel has made a point of revealing that Snowden donated to Ron Paul. I think the goal is to paint us as fellow traitors, or at least ones who want to bring down the government. With so much propaganda-dripping statements out there about how Snowden is creating a threat - it would be very easy for them to get most Americans to support the arrest or at least the "outing" of "anti-government rebels working with foreign governments" (the Chinese & Russians)
....with a little "they hate Obama because he is black" thrown in for good measure.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

it's funny how those who

it's funny how those who doubted Ron are now kissing his ass or slowly adopting his ideology.

I guess it's true when Gandhi said, "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win."

A few thoughts

The reason they have him on is because their ratings spike and they have to look like they care for some credibility.

I like

your hypothelizational dialect regarding this matter.

I like

your new word. I'm having fun just trying to pronounce it with conviction. :D

I thought you were going for a different conclusion

When I read the end of the "teaser", which was: "On msnbc, he asked the punishment for people who violate the Constitution. He also asked why Republicans were defending Obama." -- I figured you would conclude with "the penalty as written in the Constitution is death."

Still, I liked your analysis. I'd add that the media now knows what the administration is capable of after it has gone after their phone records et al, so they're doing real journalism for a change.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I think they think

that associating the whistleblower with Ron Paul is a BAD thing.

They are trying to convince the public that the whistleblower is just another "whacko", and to prove it.... here's Ron Paul to SUPPORT this "traitor".

Of course, RP always takes over an interview and makes so much sense that they lose big time. (That is why you always hear sighs and groaning from the commentator).

The beauty is that from another perspective, they are allowing RP to say "I told you so".... and more and more people are listening!!!!

Cutting their noses off to spite their faces used to be the expression.

Viva La Revolucion!

IMHO He may have been on as a tool for the right

to use the brightest freeist mind of what they think is their lot to tarnish the funding of NSA. IMHO this may be a way for the Z's, through the Chertoff group, to starve the NSA of money so homeland (mostly controlled by Z's) security can takeover major surveillence programs with more centralized command.

With that said, Ron Paul speaks the truth whether the Z's think they are using him or not... in the end their arrogance will stain their silk screen and all that will be left is a meal.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

If he took action...

....and got some PR and oratory coaching....

...he could be our next president.

Stranger things have happened. RP is still my man. I love the guy. Voted for McCain in 2008 and RP in 2012.

I hope my voting record can show how the populous can WAKE UP....as I did.

There are more of us now than ever before. Maybe...just maybe...we can convince him to come out of retirement.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.


I love Ron Paul but he is not going to be president.

Wait now

During the elections, He was characterized as "kooky" and they tried to label his Constitutional views as extremist.
Now, they can't get enough of him.
I just hope those that brushed him off in 2008 and 2012 will realize they made a terrible mistake.
Letting MSM tell them how to vote.

Dr. Paul is doing what he has always done but my theory on

the media letting him on TV is that these dying cable "news" (propaganda) shows need Dr. Paul for credibility and a desperate attempt to boost their ratings. They sneered at him and insinuated he was a nut for eight years, now they are trying to make a living off of his coat tails.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

thanks for your thoughts! so

thanks for your thoughts!

so you dont think its any kind of strategy, just the media needing ratings?

Ratings and hoping for a gottcha sound bite.

They still serve their masters. Profits and control of the masses. That's what it's all about.

And no, Dr. Paul is not seeking another run. He didn't really want the job in the first place. But, he will continue to educate wherever he can and help gather support for Rand.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”
―Emmet Fox

If he wants to continue to educate...

...he must realize that there is no bigger megaphone than the Presidential Nomination of an Anointed Party.
