I have a fear that the mass media, with their inaccurate "projected" numbers of delegates, will inform everyone that Mitt Romney has reached the
special required number to clinch the nomination, hence convincing people that voting is no longer necessary, the process is over, and Ron Paul is out
The Republican party will close up shop for further primaries, declare Mitt Romney the nominee before the convention in Tamp Florida even occurs, and
no one will be any wiser.
If the process means anything and has any credibility, then things truly should not be over until the large woman sings. But we all know the media's
need for the "Breaking story", making sure they float along on their own cloud nine of being first to announce anything, even if they are wrong or
not providing all the facts.
Everyone wants things to be done so quickly! Sit back and enjoy life! Instant gratification isn't everything! Especially when it's something as
important as who leads your country's Government and influences how you live your life.
And this is more directed to Calvary Scout as a response because it supports what I was about to say:
What was quoted above by danj3ris is a great point. The media has (possibly had) the power to change people's opinions by selectively omitting or
modifying the information. "Projections" are not truth, but people believe them anyway because they are put out there. We know for a fact that the
CFR (which controls the media) uses media of all kinds in collusion (that's why they all sound like parrots), and through this collusion a public
opinion can be swayed or created from nothing other than repetition of "information", true or false.
Now, by you saying what you've said about him not having support, it appears to me you've bought into this hence why I said brainwashed. Because it
is obvious by going to rallies and seeing the physical people (the VOTERS) of each group, Paul has immense support. With media constantly creating
the illusion of him being out of the race, unimportant, and non-viable candidate, it literally becomes so (to those mired in the effects of the
washing.) That's why I said, it begins with you. You have no idea if your belief in him and his principles will create the change needed in others
around you, to create the change as a whole that we desire. But we do know that if you do nothing, then truly nothing will happen. And to do nothing
is by default failing to stand up for what you believe.
I'm not mad, I'm not pissed. What I am is tired of the rhetoric answers that are not contrived of someone who is thinking on their own, independent
of the wash effect the media creates. I am tired of people counting someone out because the media says so. I am tired of people believing that doing
nothing is OK. I am also tired of people dragging unimportant topics to point (like age.) He is healthy as an ox, and probably could outrun me and
possibly you. Let me say this: When your conscious is clear and your Karma is good, you tend to live longer and more healthy. Dr. Paul has nothing
to be ashamed of in his entire political voting career, no regrets about voting the way he does, and I'm betting he sleeps well knowing he's doing
the right thing. I can't say that for all the other Presidents before him. Observe that those who have to bend their will to others against what
they believe, they will age rapidly. Because it is against who and what they are, it devours them from the inside.
Think about these things vs. just responding off-handed as an attack or some form of come-back. I'm not here to attack I'm here to set the record
straight and inform.
Someone who is informed will make better decisions, and I am convinced that is ALL we need to win this election.
