It's funny how people who voice their dissatisfaction about our corrupt election system, a candidate or presidents policies are considered fanatics.
The public is expected to standby and quietly accept corruption in government and politicians and presidents who selectively choose their audience to
show a false sense of public support.
The last time I checked, we were still supposedly living in a democracy. Our constitution gives us a right to openly express our dissatisfaction
about government policies, a candidates ideas and corruption in politics. It's what sets us apart from dictatorships and a communist form of
government. We don't need to look over our shoulder and worry if there's secret police ready to arrest us when we express our dissatisfaction with
our political leaders. (Having said that, I feel we are slowly losing this basic right).
The media and powers that be, silenced Ron Paul from the beginning of the GOP campaign. They labeled him from the start as being controversial and
his supporters as being fanatics. Anyone who has ever taken advertising 101 understands repeating a statement enough time makes the public believe in
your product. Unfortunately in Ron Paul's case it stuck. They created a product image of Ron Paul from the start, and carried it through like an
advertising campaign. By the time Ron Paul was able to get any kind of media attention, the damage was already done. Those voters who vote by a
candidates popularity, looks, and a candidates media saturation bought it hook line and sinker. There's no level playing field in any election.
The candidates who are backed by the larger corporations are pushed to the front by the media, and the party selects the candidates who's policies
fit best with their future agenda.
I don't get into watching party conventions, but the GOP convention this year should promise to be quite entertaining. I hope Ron Paul does ruffle
some feathers because our party system needs to be shaken up and the corruption exposed.
