They are so scared of this. The talking heads at Fox and other anti-paul advocates blow my mind on how they try and talk trash about Dr. Paul but
have nothing credible to say about him. These are the kind of idiots who are given a shovel and told to dig a hole only they are to stupid to see the
hole is for them.
I'm glad people are finally waking up and are getting fed up with the b.s. the system has become.
Time for an overhaul.
Ron Paul 2012
Who's scared? Why is this a conspiracy? Who's "waking" up? Fox News is on one hand the mouth piece of the Republican Party, nothing more than paid
dis-info agents....and on the other......Mr. Paul is a Republican and in this case “they” are against him? Do you realize "waking up" is an
obnoxious, self-important term; as though your heads and tails above everyone else?
The simple fact is Mr. Paul's populist positions play well with highly motivated, passionate, primary voters. This is not a sampling of the general
electorate, who will have many months to vet out the entirety of his decades long service (and statements). This is the problem.
Remember the primaries, four years ago? Who was in the lead? Who went on to win the nomination? The issue for the republican establishment isn’t due
to any fabricated boogymen. It’s about winning the Whitehouse. If Mr. Paul wins the primaries, his entire body of political work will fall under
scrutiny. Every wacky thing (as far as the general electorate is concerned) he’s said will fall under the microscope. All the things you (the royal
you) like to forget about his past, the media at large and certainly his opponent, wont. Look at the shock in this very forum over Mr. Paul being
asked about claimed racism. Do I think Mr. Paul is a racist? Heck no!
Putting someone up against President Obama who can win is THE issue. This forum is not representative of the general all around public. It’s a
conspiracy web site. Outside of this vacuum, there are political realities that will not be ignored.
Again, for the record, I am 100% pro-Paul. I am also a realist. The more we sit in our echo chamber and bury our head in the sand as to the political
realities of an election, the more we stand to loose. I am simply trying to interject realistic conversation into and otherwise rabidly obsessed
political view point that, ultimately, leads to failure.
If we can’t put the fantasy of Mr. Paul down, and realize the political reality of Mr. Paul, he’ll never win. I’ve often though the reason Mr.
Paul doesn’t get any further than he does is because of his supporters’ refusal to acknowledge his baggage. Don’t run from it. Don’t label
everything a conspiracy (it comes across as kooky, and quite frankly, is) and deal with these issues at a grass roots level.
Oh, and push yourself away from the keyboard and go vote.
Again, for the record, I am 100% pro Mr. Paul.
