CNN's 'The McRomney Show'

CNN billed it as a "debate" but it was really just a showcase for McCain and Romney to bicker and argue amongst themselves about irrelevant issues. It was CNN's McRomney show. The old media has already made up its mind about who the so called "front runners" are, and they are attempting to brainwash the general public. But the old media is not all powerful. Remember, tonight's show used to be called the Rudy McRomney show. What ever happened to that guy? For all its efforts, the old media couldn't get us to swallow Rudy as anything more than just a fringe candidate.

People, the old media isn't going to do it for us. In fact -- as you can see -- they're going to actively resist us. We have to be Ron Paul's media, going door to door and talking to people about Ron Paul. Go to the campaign site and sign up to become a precinct leader. You'll get a list of Independent and Republican citizens in your neighborhood. Go out and meet them. Give them literature. Talk to them. Get to them this weekend, just before the big vote in Super Tuesday states. You saw what we get from the old media: More of the same. The endless McRomney show. We must be the new media, spreading the news the old fashioned way -- one person at a time.

Further, the campaign should consider a one-on-one debate with Mike Huckabee. Huckabee made it clear how frustrated he was as well during tonight's McRomney Show. Huckabee differs little from the other two, so it would be an excellent chance for Dr. Paul to get his views out and contrast them with so-called "mainstream" ideas. The debate could simply be put up online, and would of course be an instant internet sensation. I'm sure Mike would like to get in on some of the r3VOLution's attention. Most importantly, it would force old media institutions like CNN to change their ways from merely presenting their favorite candidates, to actually engaging in real debate.

In the interest of increased public discourse and education, I hope that both the Paul & Huckabee campaigns will consider such a plan.

Clueless

McCain is clueless. Ron Paul, as we know, on the other hand is brilliant:

John Mccain responses

Is it just me or does it seem like Mccain is reading straigt out of a teleprompter??

Why they don't understand the constitution

The reason people are not upset about the trashing of the constitution is because they don't understand it. The constitution was written by men who read and understood the Bible (in several different languages). They used biblical principals to construct the constitution. I doubt if any of the candidates let alone most of the voters ever read their Bible or understand it.

It was offensive to see Dr Paul and Huckabee marginalized

I also noticed that McCain seems to have some emotional disorder.
His "shit eating" grins and strange body language looks to me to be a reflection of something not quite right inside his mind.

To me he looks like a dangerous person to be in a position of power. Fortunately, I don't think that any of the Republicans other than Dr. Paul could defeat the Democrats, particularly if Obama, the candidate of "change" manages to knock off Hillary.

This was a strange debate where the trivial seemed to take center stage. Nero fiddles as Rome burns.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Democratic Debate

I wrote the campaign that Dr. Paul should take up the invitation to debate with the Democrats! More air time and attract some independents and Democrats for those of us in open primary states. Plus, Im sure it will get a few of MSM to start writing and talking about him. Flood the campaign with requests for him to debate tonight!

The Paul/Huckabee idea is

The Paul/Huckabee idea is interesting, but I doubt Mike would agree to it. Based on this last debate, he wants to be taken seriously alongside McRomney -- not be further marginalized alongside Paul.

And if Paul were to propose this to Huckabee, it would be like saying, "Hey, since the cool kids wouldn't let me play in their sandbox, I made my own. You're welcome to join me!" That would make Paul look like a loser who's basically accepted that he'll never be one of those cool kids.

Boycott CNN

Let's hit them in the pocket book. The only thing they understand. Anybody have their email address so I can inform them they just lost a viewer?

The Mannequin and the Manchurian Candidate

My perception is that the Huckster is there to siphon off conservative votes from Ron Paul from those who don't understand the Big Picture. Either the Mannequin or the Manchurian Candidate are acceptable to the globalists. The CNN (Old Media -CFR) used this "debate" to showcase its two Republican candidates. Either of the two Democrat candidates are acceptale to them.

As long as one of those four candidates gets elected, nothing will change. More wars, more spending, more deficits, more inflation and less freedom.

Nancy Reagan

I wonder if Nancy Reagan noticed how her Husband's name was trashed and the sham that occured last night in his Library.

I really hope she stands up and tells off CNN for this sham, though probably not :(

Supposedly she is supporting

Supposedly she is supporting McCain. Perhaps she could have her astrologers help him out on economics, foreign policy, and history.

Paul vs. Huckabee

It could be the PayPerView event of the century .

Federalist #8

McCain and Romney need to read it.

Maybe they think Paul is foolish, but can they say they are wiser than the authors of the Constitution?

"The violent destruction of life and property incident to war, the continual effort and alarm attendant on a state of continual danger, will compel nations the most attached to liberty to resort for repose and security to institutions which have a tendency to destroy their civil and political rights. To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free."

"It is of the nature of war to increase the executive at the expense of the legislative authority."

"The perpetual menacings of danger oblige the government to be always prepared to repel it; its armies must be numerous enough for instant defense. The continual necessity for their services enhances the importance of the soldier, and proportionably degrades the condition of the citizen. The military state becomes elevated above the civil. The inhabitants of territories, often the theatre of war, are unavoidably subjected to frequent infringements on their rights, which serve to weaken their sense of those rights; and by degrees the people are brought to consider the soldiery not only as their protectors, but as their superiors. The transition from this disposition to that of considering them masters, is neither remote nor difficult; but it is very difficult to prevail upon a people under such impressions, to make a bold or effectual resistance to usurpations supported by the military power."

Why I Joined the Revolution

I thought Dr. Paul knocked it out of the park last night with the time he was given. There's one huge point that I haven't heard articulated yet, & it's the reason why I joined the revolution.

I've never connected with either Democrat or Republican party -- or more accurately I should say I never connected with liberals or neo-conservatives. The reason I joined this revolution is based on government intervention. The liberals want government intervention in domestic issues i.e. welfare, healthcare, education, etc. & the neo-cons, who've controlled the Republican party for too long, want government intervention in foreign policy. Both sides argue that the answer to both our domestic and foreign problems is MORE government intervention! This point is layed out brilliantly by Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr. in the foreward to Dr. Paul's A Foreign Policy of Freedom book. For anyone who hasn't gotten it yet, I highly recommend it.

I wish this point of government intervention both domestically & overseas would be hit home. The reason we're in such sad shape here & abroad is because of government intervention -- how can more government intervention be the answer? This is the position of the founding fathers & all we're saying is, let's follow guidelines they gave us! Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I just haven't heard this point articulated in any of the debates -- linking both parties together by a common thread, more government intervention & then proposing a totally different approach, the one our founding fathers layed out for us.

great post

He did mention the fact that the government should not run the economy but let the people and market direct it. What I like about your post is the way you articulate this concept as domestic noninterventionism, which unifies the entire concept. There is no one like Ron Paul out there except Ron Paul!

To: Kent Skates

Just want to say---an excellent post!!

He did

During this debate he plainly stated he didn't think the President should be running the economy or running out lives in a great way. I hope it opened up many peoples eyes. Sadly few people ever watch these debates, remember when they used to be broadcasted on major over the air networks, now its on news stations that only news junkies watch, while everyone else is watching "Dancing with the Stars"

mirror image

let us make some you tube style commercials w/ the pundits marginalizing Ron Paul's issues and marginalizing the constitution and the will of the people and end it w/ "pundits dont pick presidents we the people do "

p.s. it would be helpful to mention which war profiting companies own these media outlets

Great IDEA, and GREAT tagline....DO IT!

We could all definately make this go viral and worldwide...all our friends in Europe would help in this effort too. This would make alot of press in the nations.

Please do it.

My take on Ron Paul and the three Stalinists...

Just a few of my thoughts on what I could only call Ron Paul and the three Stalinists on stage.

Obviously, CNN's "debate" format coupled with the performances of Anderson Cooper and the two corporate drones from Politico and the LA Times created an atmosphere that was hostile to any appearance of fairness or propriety and was nothing but an episode of discrimination and prejudice toward the one non-Corporate Military-Industrial Media-blessed, non-CFR-styled candidate, Congressman Ron Paul (and, ironically, one theocratic-war-preacher from Arkansas).

What took place last night at the Reagan Presidential Library was a disgusting and obscene fraud. It was an affront to American representative democracy that what was portrayed as a "debate" while in reality was nothing but a form of mass-mind control.

That said, it was a testament to the leadership, integrity and strength of the Honorable Dr. Ron Paul to deliver his message as clearly as he did in the midst of so much knuckle-dragging.

I realized last night that a great deal can be learned from what was omitted from the rhetoric of the Stalinists on that stage with Ron Paul last night.

None of the CFR-styled candidates (Hucklebuck, Willard, or "Keating Five" McCain) has the courage or honesty to discuss the fraudulent Federal Reserve Banking system like Dr. Paul does. None of the NeoCons on that stage would dare to debate the merits of the American Empire (or even call it what it is). They are all COWARDS in their abdication of these issues. Apparently, some people in America would like to elect one of these lemmings as Commander-In-Chief. Not I.

They talk about cutting taxes and cutting spending, but only Ron Paul talks the talk and walks the walk. Ron Paul was the only soul on that stage with the honesty and integrity to lead this country back to greatness.

I also wanted to add that I recall Anderson Cooper making the remark at the end of the debate that the Democrats would debate on Thursday and made the remark in passing, jokingly, that any of those Republican candidates were invited to the Democratic Debate. I would urge Ron Paul to take up CNN on this offer and sit with Obama and Clinton tonight. What do you think?

"...a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people." -John F. Kennedy

Obama vs Clinton vs Paul

I completely agree. He needs the public attention right now before heading into Super Tuesday and what a headliner that would be! He would be able to insert some contrasting views to what are pretty similar policies that Obama and Clinton bring up. He may even get some converts.

The media could not ignore this, its too sensational. Though, I doubt CNN would actually let him do it.

If the Founders had given up so easily

We wouldn't have this country. Hang tough, people.

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
― Albert Camus

Foundations

The founders tried to build upon good land and set good foundations.
If Ron Paul don't win this they might have just as well built their foundations on a swamp. -Swamped with dollars and paved with disenchanted slave workers and alligators chomping at your ankles for more and more taxes. I say taser those alligators and pave your pavements with gold my friends.

Mc Cain is an alligator
he took my legs away,
I got up and shouted-
I hope you get indegestion
and suffer all this day

Ron Paul gave me new ones
I said 'thank you very much'
Lets go do lunch - he said
- but we're to have- to- go -do Dutch.

I don't have any dollars left,
they were in my trouser pocket'
He said OK,- I'll pay- with the money saved.
I have gotton tons of cash left-
'on cancelling that nuclear rocket'.

'I always thank of all you canvassors and precinct leaders and delegates who were at the front line and caucuses.
Good luck out there &Thank you. You're a gift.

What I would like to see..

...is someone make a Youtube video either in the form of a Saturday Night Live skit showing how rediculous CNN, FOX and the others have been.

or

A youtube video showing a short debate giving Dr. Paul all the air time and over exagerating the lack of time given to Mitt and McCain.

Think back over the years. One of the best ways to draw attention to something is to be satirical about it as to draw attention to what is unjust. Besides, we need some humor in our camp. Yes, the cause is a serious one but anger and frustration will drain a persons moral as fast as anything.

I like this idea for a youtube video

I wish I had the skill set to produce it myself.

I think it would be great to just allow McCain enough time to mutter about "Pork Barrel spending, Bridge to nowhere, radical islamic extremism" and of course doing his name dropping. He's already a self parody and been horrible in the debates -- I can't see how anyone can watch his performances and walk away impressed.

Romney is much slicker and polished, but his biggest flaw in debating is that he will rarely answer the question. He will talk about anything under the sun to avoid directly answering the question. So I would emphasize that aspect.

Huck is just a flat out hypocrite and I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to splice together segments of his pro-war rhetoric with his all-loving phony religious b.s.

You could use all debate-sourced content and be pretty successful I would think.
