I'm sure many of you watched the debate tonight, which for all intent and purpose, was Perry vs Romney, with six other bystanders. I'm not completely
positive of this, but pretty sure, that Ron Paul received only four direct questions, with three thirty second followups, and was left out completely,
of any major question. He was left out of the healthcare question all together, as a physician! During the lightening round, at the end, which lasted
about 20-25 minutes, he was only asked one question, the last question of the debate, which had nothing to do with what everyone else commented on.
In fact, it seemed that the hosts would ask Romney a question, and ask Perry what he thought about his response, or vice versa, and then they would
ask the others what they thought, after Perry and Romney gave their opinions, and Ron was left out, repeatedly. They then would ask Ron a question
which had nothing to do with the main conversation between candidates, and seemed more curious about his opinion on the FAA and TSA, then anything
else. He didn't even get a chance to really answer any of the questions the others were asked.
Now I realize others were partially ignored as well, but they haven't done nearly as well in the polls as Ron has. Given the recent polls, Ron should
have been asked a few more questions, at the least, or at least included somewhat in the main conversation.
This debate made me sick to my stomach. It wasn't the candidates, or the answers to the questions, but how blatantly obvious it was that the MSM was
intentionally ignoring Paul. Ron Pauls success in the polls show he's right there with who MSM considers as 'top tier" candidates, yet it's blatantly
obvious they simply push who they want to be a top tier candidate to the forefront. I slowly became infuriated during the debate, and almost didn't
watch the entire thing. It was a sham, a mockery. It's fine if you don't like Ron, or prefer another candidate, but everyone has to admit, it is no
where near a fair playing ground, whoever you support, and what we are basically seeing, is MSM making celebrities out of "their" picks, and ignoring
Is there any hope? Will this ever change? Ron was somewhat ignored in the last debate, and tonight was far worse. As a younger person, in my late
20's, it's both embarrassing and infuriating to see many adults, of all ages, just blindly eat up this crap, and remain oblivious to the fact that
elections are rigged and paid for, corporations pick candidates, and control the flow of information(mainstream), to the point that we can't even have
a fair debate! It's infuriating!
I think it was Ron's second question, after we hadn't heard from him in 15 minutes, and the host asked some some completely random, off the wall
question. Ron's response, was basically "hey, there are other people up here too, and you didn't ask me, or let me comment on any of the other
questions, give me my time to answer them". The hosts facial expression read "yeah, so what?", and then told Ron to finish his sentence or he was
done. There was a clear agenda here.
I really feel bad for Ron. You could see him just itching to get into the debate, yet the repeatedly just skipped over him, and as the polls show, he
deserves more respect in this kind of a setting. he has a much larger following now, then he did three years ago. They are so scared of his answers,
they won't even ask him a question.
