We all wish we had a leader like Ron Paul. :-(
I'm positive the only reason that he didn't win is because the mainstream media here completely destroyed his character. They succeeded in creating
the public mindset that he was unfit as an individual and that his policies are "crazy."
When I talk to my co-workers about politics, I usually start out by saying "Do you think it would be a good idea if..." and then I refer to any
number of Ron Paul's ideas and beliefs.
have I heard somebody say, "No, I don't think that's a good idea." or "I disagree with that plan."
Then I tell them, "Well, that's what Ron Paul thought," or "That's what Ron Paul wanted to do."
And invariably they respond with, "Isn't that the guy who saw a UFO?" (That was Kucinich, for the record,) or "Isn't he the guy who published
newsletters for neo-nazis," Or my personal favorite, "He's the one with all the strippers campaigning for him, right?"
And sadly, the closest thing we have in our media to Ron Paul is... us, ATS, a voice that nobody listens to except its own members. :-(
