Comment: Thanks Rachel!

Thanks Rachel!

About a month ago, a friend of mine and I went out for drinks -- he is/was a Gingrich supporter -- and I shared with him what I felt might be happening with the Dr. Paul's delegate situation, which is coming to pass. While I'm glad that Rachel Maddow and a few others (thanks Ben!) are covering this, it's sad to me that my buddy and many like him will be blindsided by this news. He laughed/scoffed when I shared the possibility of Dr. Paul taking a lions share of the delegates.

Nothing in me wants to say to him, "I told you so." It's sad to me how tragically bad the MSM is with regard to the truth. It's a free country (well...) and they can run their business how they wish (again, well...), but I found myself discussing this with my children today -- informing my 12, 10 and 6 year old how skeptical they must be toward all things media. To never take what CNN, FOX news, MSNBC (and the likes of) or their reporters say at face value. It felt icky to engage them on this level, but it needed to be done. They'll be better for it. This whole thing just strikes me as ridiculous and sad.

May truth prevail! May Freedom ring! May our children, and their children, and their children have and possess true freedom in all of it's lovely forms!

Go Ron Paul!
