The Ron Paul Game: Let's play along with the media #TheRonPaulGameSubmitted by WIRP on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 14:40
I've created and play a game quite frequently, which I believe some of you also do , it's call "The Ron Paul Game". It can not only be fun, but it can be crucial in raising the consciousness of what is happening in the media.
How do you play? There are three steps.
1. You make a statement about Ron Paul, in the same spirit that our mainstream media (MSM) does.
2. You credit a MSM network, host, etc.
3. You add the hashtag #TheRonPaulGame to reinforce this meme.
Expose the lack of credibility of our MSM.
You can do this in your e-mails, twitter, forums, chats, and real life of course.
Ron Paul doesn't want to bomb Iran without information, CBS's Bob Schieffer reports that makes Ron Paul an isolationist. #TheRonPaulGame
Ron Paul predicted the Housing Bubble and economic crash, MSNBC reports his economic views insane. #TheRonPaulGame
Ron Paul fought against discrimination of blacks for decades due to the War on Drugs, CNN reports Ron Paul is possibly racist. #TheRonPaulGame
Only Romney and Paul poll 50-50 vs Obama among the GOP, FoxNews reports Ron Paul is unelectable. #TheRonPaulGame
I believe the community is familiar with this game that the media plays, but we can not only play along, but we do it better. We can make it much clearer what they are doing.
This game, or actually this meme, will help expose how ridiculous the MSM is. This is crucial in helping our fellow citizens become conscious of considering the source of their news. Many people, and not only older ones without internet, still do not realize how substandard of a job our MSM is doing. The sensational, lazy, dishonest, yellow journalism must be exposed. Otherwise when the MSM portrays Ron Paul as "Crazy Uncle Ron" or "Extreme Isolationist" or "Unelectable" they will not bother to think beyond that.
Feel free to also include other mainstream politicians to contrast Paul.
Newt cheats on wife with cancer, Ron Paul will destroy America's family values, reported by Fox. #TheRonPaulGame
Obama kills 16y.o. American with drone, a first, media reports Paul is bad for America's liberty. #TheRonPaulGame
The MSM's receding, yet overrated reputation of credibility is a major barrier to the movement of restoring liberty, peace and prosperity. If this meme spread, it can go a long way to exposing their lack of objective, credible, and thorough journalism.
