Watching mainstream media, one would think that Rick Perry or even Mitt Romney are candidates of choice of the conservative Americans. LIE – LIE -LIE – LIE
Even Jon Stewart knows that an effort is pushing to eliminate ANY conversation of RON PAUL. Only those of us who seek the TRUTH from beyond MSM know the REAL TRUTH. There has been no mention of the audit of the FED, which 1st phase was released on July 27, 2011, initiated by RON PAUL and supported by Vermont’s Bernie Sanders. We hear King Perry touting his sermons and grabbing these talking points from Paul’s efforts. MSM of course makes it appear that these ideas were Perry’s and “he’s our man”. ….but WE know better. Here are just a few articles exposing the fear that mainstream has of Ron Paul, and also telling their readers that Dr Paul IS a candidate who is serious about America and not about the “he said – she said – they said” tactics of the other candidates.
Ron Paul’s new AD at end of article! Strong, to the point!
Why the American media hate and fear Ron Paul
Ron Paul seems to be media poison. He came within nine tenths of a percentage of winning Saturday’s Iowa straw poll, yet featured in hardly any of the political coverage. The result was strong enough to elevate the lady who placed first (Michele Bachmann) and eliminate the gentleman who came third (Tim Pawlenty). Yet, as comedian Jon Stewart has lamented, the media has actively ignored the poor fellow who ran second. In a particularly shoddy bit of reporting, CNN refused to cover Ron Paul’s speech in preference for footage of Sarah Palin. The show’s host told his roving reporter, “If you get video of Sarah Palin or a sound-bite from her, bring that back to us. You can hold the Ron Paul stuff.”
Ron Paul is a serious candidate with a real constituency, a twelve-term congressman who ran for the Presidency twice (as a Libertarian and a Republican). He is a doctor, a veteran and a fine public speaker. I saw him orate at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference and was bowled over. For ten minutes I was spellbound by his rapid-fire straight-talking, which detoured into scholarly pot-shots at the American-Philippine War of 1899 and John Maynard Keynes. He polled first in the Conference straw poll, a feat he repeated in 2011. Yet even when he romps home, the media pretends he doesn’t exist. If Ron Paul were to win every single primary on next year’s Super Tuesday, the New York Times would run with the headline “Mitt Romney Comfortable Second – Nomination Assured”.
Ron Paul confuses the American media because his ideology is an awkward fit for the two-party system. As a libertarian, he is anti-war: a position better represented among the Democrats. But he is also against welfare, which makes him more attractive to Republicans. From this anti-government philosophy he could construct a “leave me alone” majority that appeals to independents. That’s the big plan. read more….
Are the media scared of Ron Paul?
By Peter Grier, Staff writer Christian Science Monitor / August 17, 2011
News outlets routinely treat the Ron Paul candidacy as a hopeless case, if they mention him at all among GOP presidential hopefuls. He cites fear, but bewilderment might be a more accurate reason.
In an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, Representative Paul ticked off the reasons that reporters should list him in the top tier of Republican wannabes. Paul noted that he did well in the Iowastraw poll, has a strong organization, and can raise money. But news outlets routinely treat the Ron Paul candidacy as a hopeless case, if they mention him at all among GOP presidential hopefuls. He cites fear, but bewilderment might be a more accurate reason.
“They don’t want to discuss my views because I think they’re frightened by us challenging the status quo and the establishment when it comes to foreign policy and monetary policy, the entitlement system, because my views are quite different than the other candidates’,” he said on Fox. read more….
Once a fringe candidate, Paul shaping 2012 race
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ron Paul, once seen as a fringe candidate and a nuisance to the establishment, is shaping the 2012 Republican primary by giving voice to the party’s libertarian wing and reflecting frustration with the United States’ international entanglements.
The Texas congressman placed second in a key early test vote Saturday in Ames, coming within 152 votes of winning the first significant balloting of the Republican nominating contest. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota won the nonbinding Iowa straw poll, but Paul’s organizational strength and a retooled focus on social issues set him up to be a serious player in the campaign.
“I believe in a very limited role for government. But the prime reason that government exists in a free society is to protect liberty, but also to protect life. And I mean all life,” he told a raucous crowd on Saturday.
“You cannot have relative value for life and deal with that. We cannot play God and make those decisions. All life is precious,” he said, opening his remarks with an anti-abortion appeal to the social conservatives who have great sway here in Iowa’s leadoff caucuses.
Later Saturday, Paul won 4,671 votes, or roughly 28 percent of the votes from party activists who flocked to a college campus for the daylong political carnival….
