If you will recall, there was plenty of talk and media time for Ron Paul, but once the real campaign started (Iowa and esp after his unreported Iowa victory), the media resorts to the black out and/or a smear campaign.
What the PTB want is to suck a bunch of good Americans' energy, time, and money into a national race, when THEY know the election is rigged and they can easily manipulate the debate.
Thousands would show up at Ron Paul rallies, and a few dozen to Mitt's, but it didn't matter, did it?
They WANT to draw the suckers in, the "believers". I was one. I suppose I still am to some degree. But this is why Fox talks about Rand as the frontrunner. They want to let this national race (which they control 100%) occupy your time, and distract you from doing meaningful, powerful things like going to talk to your local sheriff.
Don't get me wrong, I will monetarily support a good candidate like Rand, but after 2008 and 2012, we all should absolutely know it's all controlled at the national level. Rand doesn't have a chance, and IF he does get close, they'll take him down, like Larry McDonald, whose popularity and appeal was growing exponentially the time his plane was shot down.
The lesson? We must focus on the state and county.
