Being ignored? Please clarify being ignored.
I see his face on tv day and night.


And he's somehow "an outsider," yet I see more MSM coverage of Trump than any other candidate.

How often did television-news outlets carry out stories of Ron Paul's policies and mention his name? How much time was he given during the debates?

How much has time Trump been given by the mainstream narrative?

The same mainstream narrative many outright dismiss is the primary platform for how Trump conveys his message (and Twitter - but if you use Twitter for political learnings I feel bad, honestly) and his cult followers still call him an "outsider."

So?
How many devices does Hillary have?


I think Hillary's staffers keep her very simple since she has shown she can not really comprehend all that crazy electronic/computer stuff. I bet Bill didn't allow here to play around with the VCR either.

I don't think his point was about the parties fighting or slandering each other but the fact that right now both major parties are having internal problems which weakens their strangle hold on politics. This has allowed for possibly the first time in a very long time for the people to actually change the system with their vote.

It's possible that in one shot we could shatter both elite parties once and for all and get some new blood in there that will change the system. Both sides have backed troubled candidates which has fractured their hold over election outcomes. If the voters wanted they have the chance to strike while the two party system is weak. This may be the only shot there is also. After this election both sides will regroup and become too much for anyone to deal with again.

The enemy has made a major mistake and exposed it's weakness but it might not be for very long. Strike while the iron is hot as they say. I doubt we'll get another shot any time soon.

Has your head been in the sand? The DNC and MSM are in an active conspiracy. see wikileaks, they did not deny. When facing propaganda not news the rules are different.

She doesn't think the news is fake like we do.
MATBE even believes what the government tells her...which we don't.
I say WE because I don't know anyone who does and admits it..

Ron Paul was easy to bury in the news cycle. He became quite popular in the news right before the iowa caucus when he was in the lead. Those racist newsletters were ran on the news cycles, interviews where all they did was ask "do you disavow".
If he would have had a consistent lead in the polling it would have been different.
the 2012 election was different, each candidate was cycled up ahead of romney by positive coverage and then berated for a couple weeks causing them to crater.

Trump was simply too big and popular to ignore, thus a different strategy was used, but it failed.

I think Trump wears quality pantsuits. Only the best. Fabulous. Very Presidential. If he'd just lose some weight he would be at least a 6 or 7, you know, for his age...

Your first sentence demonstrates my point exactly.

Ron Paul was buried. Media blackout.

Donald Trump? Not. Even. Close.

But then again, Ron Paul talked in substance and idealogy and not tweets and memes. The American people fiercely support the latter whilst ignoring the former, imo.

To compare Paul and Trump is an insult in my honest opinion.

I've heard many pander the excuse that "Ron Paul has been involved in government and what has he done, he's a part of the government," yet they have no problem with established clowns such as Mike Pence or Gingrich (LOL).

It was the same thing with Bernie (who I by the way never supported), but it suddenly is no matter applicable to other candidates... and it makes no sense.

Ron Paul was a serious chance for America to embrace something different - and the American people have spoken unequivocally and resoundingly with a "we want the same to remain."

Again, Americans are supporting and cheering for the same - whether it be Trump or Hillary.

The fact that the "oh so evil mainstream media," carries these two candidates in a constant WWE-style scripted perpetuating cycle of faux "enemies," should be telling to anyone who has been paying attention.

I haven't watched television in years, but the media presence of Donald Trump is real.

Yet he's an "outsider." Yeah, right.

The first thing I would have done if I was running Trumps campaign was changed his Twitter password and blocked him from it. Then I would have made him read his speeches and let him go off and attack a random group of people that were going to vote for him. I know they have a Trumpsitter now that suppose to keep him calm and under control and they give him those bog flash cards to remind him what his message is but, he needs to be coached and controlled so he can at least pretend he looks like a leader and not a crazy drunk guy.
