Ron Paul is already the object of spin and media control. News sites, it seems, are almost deliberately trying to exclude him from the overall debate. Pundits push him off as "kook" "extremist" and "fringe" without a discussion of the reasons behind his positions. Debates are a great way for Ron to explain himself. One way that he is being portrayed as a "kook" is to imply that he wants to shut down the Fed completely on his first day - this is misinformation used against him. The idea of messing with our money (meaning the money that people still think is worth something) scares people, and they are very willing to avoid him because they don't understand this subject. I'd like to see Ron given the chance to put off this kind of spin - give him the chance to explain to people that he has no intention of turning this cake upside down. Give him the chance to explain simply, as he is soooo good at doing, why it's important to begin, just begin, dismantling the power of the reserve over the price and cost of our very labor. I know the answer, which is why we are here and supporting him, but there are people out there who are listening to Limbaugh, who labels him as a kook. We have to find a way to counterract that influence.
