    Ron Paul is suppressed by both parties.

    Quote, "The media is trying REALLY hard to hide the fact that Ron Paul is a serious contender


    Ron Paul wins a "Who Won the GOP Debate" poll in Fox News, and after seeing how Ron Paul won by a HUGE margin, Fox News decides to quickly erase it. Funny how all of the media sources, both liberal and conservative, are trying so hard to keep him under the rug. Here's the original Fox News poll: Iowa GOP Debate - Topix [40,000 votes, he got 24,000 of them... more than 4 times the guy in second place].

    And these things are happening everywhere (meaning, Ron Paul getting a significant amount of support from both sides, and getting pushed off as insignificant.)

    And here is the new one Fox started (Ron Paul STILL winning by a landslide): Who Won the GOP Debate? - FoxNews.com. Guess they'll have to erase this one as well.

    What do Fox News, CNN, MSNBS, etc, and all these other garbage news sources have in common? They are all run by corporate interest!

    Now on to MSNBC:

    Once again, the Anti-Ron-Paul rhetoric is everywhere. Notice how MSNBC bolded out every republican candidate in the Iowa Straw Poll... except Ron Paul, as if he were last place or anywhere near there (Yes, they bolded out the last guy as well).

    First Read - Bachmann wins Ames straw poll

    These aren't just coincidence. Both sides are trying hard, real hard, to hide the fact that Ron Paul is a serious contended.

    Open your eyes folks: These things are happening LEFT and RIGHT (meaning everywhere and from both liberal and conservative sources).

    11 Everyone Thinks Ron Paul is Right

    Former CIA specialist and contributor to The American Conservative Philip Giraldi had some interesting insights today into just how much headway Ron Paul and his message is making with a broad spectrum of Americans:

    “I had two interesting experiences over the weekend, totally unrelated to the non-event of Hurricane Irene, which only dropped an inch of rain on northern Virginia. On Friday I went to dinner with a mixed group consisting of the women who are in my wife’s quilting group together with their husbands. All of the men were in their late fifties-early sixties and everyone but me and my wife was an evangelical Christian… Two of the men have been prominent in local Democratic Party circles and the remainder vote Republican. All agreed, to my surprise, that the US economy is broken and that it is the result of the wars and globalism that have marched together hand in hand over the past ten years. They also all agreed, even when they do not support specific policies, that Ron Paul is the only honest man running for the presidency. Which is not to say they all would vote for him, but the approval rating was 100%.”
    Mr. Giraldi then moves on to day two of his weekend:

    “On Saturday we had a reunion lunch with the CIA Rome Station class of 1980. The last time the whole group was together was shortly before the 2008 election, when everyone but me and my wife indicated that they would be voting for McCain-Palin. This time around it was different… I was kidded about my Ron Paul bumper sticker but everyone was quick to add seriously that Paul was the only honest man running, that he had predicted the economic collapse, and that his message has been consistent. They even agreed emphatically when I quoted Paul’s pledge to bring the troops home from overseas on the day after he is elected. This is coming from Cold Warriors, mind you, men and women who spent careers doing without question whatever their government asked them to do. Again, no one said they would vote for Ron Paul but nor did anyone say they would not.”

    Giraldi concludes:
    “Which is all to suggest that maybe something is actually going on in the body politic, that people are willing to listen to Ron Paul even though four years ago they would have thought such an idea ridiculous. And he has a passionate base of supporters. Do you remember the scene in the Godfather where Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) sees a Cuban rebel die for his cause and realizes that the insurgents just might win? Recent opinion polls seem to be saying the same thing. Whether or not Dr. Paul can actually win the presidency, his ideas about the state of the US economy and Washington’s catastrophic foreign policy have reached the mainstream and are resonating.”

    Sadly, no. We saw the same things in '08. It's just that now it's even more glaring because he's obviously 'top-tier' everywhere but in the eyes of those invested in the status quo (read: corporate media and the major party leadership). I don't have much hope for RP being elected, or even nominated, but in my view he's already won. Watching all the commercial candidates parroting his views from four years ago is proof of that.

    My hope for the Ron Paul revolution lies in building momentum for the freedom movement going forward. Most people who turn on to Ron Paul find it pretty much impossible to stomach the ridiculous shit the phony mainstream candidates spew, and they'll continue to look for candidates in the future who really care about freedom. I'd like to see him run third party and build support for the idea that we really don't have to limit ourselves to the same old republocrat nonsense.

    Perhaps – but the issue is he’s ‘suppressed’ by his own party.

    For everyone’s sake – including Paul – let’s hope this is his last failed attempt to become president.

    Ron Paul supporters need to face reality, that most voters don't like him, and won't vote for him.

    Why?

    Are you suggesting that we should give up support for the candidate we think is right simply because he isn't popular with the majority? I fail to see the logic in that. Doing that would really be a betrayal to the basic concept of democracy. I certainly wouldn't advise anyone to base their moral or political opinions on the popularity of their views. Sometimes being right requires taking a minority position.
