It's not ridiculous when you really think about it. People have been brainwashed by the media into thinking that they have to vote for the
candidates that the media put forward. They generally put forward the candidates that will most likely tow the party line.
Dr Paul, while being a Republican, is SO committed to his ideals and his GREAT ideas that the media don't know how to deal with him, so they ignore
him. They aren't used to a politician who speaks his mind, who has no hidden agenda, makes no backroom deals, is happy to discuss his voting record
(and sticks by his votes, rarely along party lines), and tells America how things have to work to be fixed.
It's not news when someone has ideas that will work. It's news when someone does something controversial. This is why Sarah Palin gets so much
coverage in the MSM (after all, most of what she says is very controversial) and why Dr Paul gets barely any coverage at all.
If more Americans got exposed to Dr. Paul's ideas, who WOULDN'T vote for him? Less Government control over every day life? Replace income tax with
a flat sales tax so everyone pays the same? Get tough on Illegal Immigrants? No matter whether your Republicrat or Democran, these are excellent
If Dr. Paul were to run for Prime Minister of Canada (were it possible, which unfortunately, it isn't), he would have my full support. I would even
work for his campaign.
