This is probably on the wrong site since this has a size able amount of Ron Paul supporters, many of which are also members of his "fansite." So if
you want to flame go for it.
This Question has been in my head for a while and many other Americans are probably wondering the same thing.
Why is it so hard to believe that the American People just don't like Ron Paul?
Every topic is about the Main Stream Media ignoring Paul, Manipulating Polls etc.
Few Legit polls have him in double digits,(Last Polls I've he been around the 7-10% range.) He's hovered around 4th-5th place for awhile.
If this was the 80's-90's one could make the argument that maybe The American Voter is not being told everything. But we are in a socially connected
generation, in the age of Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Blogs, Vlogs (video blogs for those not PC literate) etc.
If the American voter wanted to know about any candidate they could log on to the internet and find out. They are not blinded by the big bad
establishment media. Today we have ways of fact checking basically everything that comes out of someones mouth, we can look up a candidates history,
info about their family, what they voted for while in public office, how they ran their businesses and etc.
My Point being if there was a "media blackout" against Paul or any candidate, it can easily be overcome, by an intelligent voter or potential voter.
The fact that Paul still has a lack of support (he's not leading any legit polls)outside of his fan site, this site and a few other groups, could
possibly basically mean maybe voters just do not care about this guy. Maybe they consider him unelectable. Maybe they just don't like the guy.
It's not because there is a "Main Stream Media Conspiracy" to ignore him.
People have researched him, and they have said "No Thanks"....again.
That's all there is to it.
