I didn't see that as Trump dissing Ron Paul, he was telling the truth. He said he likes him but he can't be elected, and he's right. Trump knows the
whole thing is fixed, mainly by the media.
Now as far as Trump being elected........
It sort of saddens me to agree.
It seems that for many patrons of the "produced" news format, their continuously slipping IQ has gone unnoticed.
The media (and I know people hate to lump CNN and MSNBC in with Fox) is, in it's entirety, entertainment
It does NOT in any way have to be factual, literal, or representative of reality. In fact, the law has already stipulated this in more than one case.
So-called "News" agencies are NOT responsible to convey facts, nor are they obliged in any way to make that caveat known to its consumers. "Accuracy"
is not required in theatrics.
Media, (e.g news) is a "commodity" which is "marketed" and "produced" for "consumption."
The media was not always so. There was a time when it's mandate came from the people. But then, corporate citizenship and then ownership changed all
that. Many here are not old enough to remember when activists groups would confront media companies for their blatant (or not so) manipulation of the
public... when was the last time you heard about that kind of thing? It's almost (maybe even already is) criminal to 'waste' the courts time bringing
such matters up for judicial review.
Why? Because politically appointed regulatory office-holders are the final authority in such cases....
Trump is a well-entrenched financial mogul (aside from being a narcissistic elitist) ... I guarantee he will be forced upon the American people... who
WILL take him seriously, because the MEDIA will CREATE the appropriate setting.
The Media, who's principle beneficiaries are the transnational financial cartel and corporate combines which engineer what the public consumes do not
accept that the nature of governance proposed by Dr. Paul is compatible with their notion of the ever secretive keystone "continuity of
.... where the continuity refers to THEM and not the governance itself.
It is not IMPOSSIBLE that we might be pleasantly surprised by the near future in politics.... but it is something that those already in place are
shameless about laboring to avoid....
When cheaters are already in power, transparency is the second to LAST thing they would ever want.... accountability is the last.... (hence the
corporate world is ruled by laws that allow the guilty to claim "no wrongdoing or guilt" as they pay a fine and prepare for the next
