The MSM doesn't take Ron Paul seriously because his BASE is made of an unknown social networking quagmire of foreigners, underage kids, and
people of uncertain confidence level in their candidate to even show up and vote at all. This ATS poll only reinforces this image.
completely disagree, the media is ignoring Ron Paul because whoever runs the stories and propaganda behind the mainstream media is threatened by him
and is almost blacking him out from the public. It really sounds like paranoid conspiracy theorist mumbo jumbo, but the sad reality is this is
actually happening and it's been made blatanly obvious in the past several years that the media is controlled.
Ron Pauls stance on issues are pretty simple, and I don't think the age of his supporters really matters anyway. As long as they are 18 year old
American citizens, they have the right to vote just like any senior citizens or middle aged people.
He wants to end all of the wars....jeez, what a renegade politician, we don't want a daredevil like that in office! No wars? Who will we kill? What
countries could we invade?
He wants cut spending heavily which will help to chip away at our massive debt.
He wants to legalize all drugs and leave the freedom of choice up to the individual and leave the government out of it.
He wants to back the federal reserve with gold in order to protect the money from corruption.
He wants to protect individuals rights and enforce/apply the Constitution no matter what the situation.
He wants to limit the power of the federal government and protect the citizens.
IDK how any of those could be seen as the ramblings of an insane, unrealistic president. Ron Paul takes legitimate positions that make a lot of sense
and for the most part are obviously the more rational thing to do.
His only chance to make the general election at this point is as a third party candidate that places him guess where? In the same dismal third
place position out on the fringes.
You can partially thank the mainstream media for silencing him for a while, for example pushing other
candidates onto us when Ron Paul almost got second in the Iowa straw poll and should have got lots of attention. But there is still quite a bit of
time until the elections, and I bet by then nobody will keep him quiet anymore and he'll have tons of supporters.
The reason Obama came from out of nowhere is because he got the Party to back him, do you see the Republican Party in any scenario setting up
camp behind Ron Paul?
Yes, this situation is a great example of a crucial flaw in the two party system that has arguably screwed this
Those are just some of the facts that make crying about the MSM dismissing Ron Paul look like a desperate cry from the wilderness.
Dude, MSM is blacking him out bigtime and it is completely obvious.
The story Jon Stewart ran showed probably 10-15 examples of the major media stations giving Ron Paul the cold shoulder in situations where they
clearly should have mentioned him and would have were he another candidate. Yes, a comedy channel provides honest and unbiased reporting while the
major media outlets are extremely biased propaganda machines....
