I had heard grumblings in blogosphere about the media not giving attention to Ron Paul. This morning I actually seen evidence of it on MSNBC's Morning Joe. The host's were going over poll results from Republican candidates in national and various states polling. In nearly all of the Polls Paul was either second or third........but they did not even mention his name ONCE. Instead, they only mentioned Romney, Perry, Cain...and they even mentioned those way down in the polling like Huntsman and Bachman. Thus, I have to say that I agree with the sentiment that there is a conspiracy against Ron Paul.....and that is not to say that I am a supporter of Paul overall, but I do think he and Dennis Kucinnich are the only politicians that I know of who actually believes in SYSTEMIC changes, like doing away with the Federal Reserve and changing the way our military is deployed around the world.
The truth be told its the MSM that makes or breaks candidates. The media can make you or break you by omission or commission, by digging up dirt or not digging up dirt, by exposing dirt or not exposing dirt, by attention or no attention, by biased support or biased opposition, etc. Ron Paul polls high....much higher than the attention he receives from the media and one has to ask why?
As I mentioned before, the main problems of this nation are not born from the issues that the two parties disagree with, such as abortion, gay marriage, social programs, etc. Rather, its the issues that both parties agree with, like the role of the military, the role of the federal reserve, the support for corporation and the Banking System as is. It is in these areas that much of our success and rise as a nation exists and its these same areas that are rooted in the current fall of our nation.
People like Ron Paul are a threat to the system. He potentially represents REAL change to the system and the corporate media has a gag order against his promotion.
A system is a living entity that seeks survival. It will not promote its destruction by elevating someone to a position of power that will harm it. The system will only allow the promotion to power those who will promote the system.
