The Media: “Ron Paul? Who???”
Jon Stewart was talking about this several weeks ago on The Daily Show. Ron Paul had come in second in a poll in Iowa, and almost every newscast went on and on about the winner — Michele Bachman — and the candidates who came in third and fourth. Not a word about Ron Paul.
This past Saturday, Ron Paul won the straw poll at the annual
First of all — WTF??? How did a convention of Salem Witch-hunting snake-handlers end up voting for a Libertarian??? Unlike the two-faced schizoid Republican Party, Ron Paul actually means it when he says “limited government.” He’s against the wars on: 1) Iraq, 2) Afghanistan and 3) drugs; and he doesn’t hump the Bible. What were these people thinking???
Anyway, besides the straw poll votes in Iowa and at the Values Voter Summit, Ron Paul has also won similar polls conducted by the California GOP and the Conservative Political Action Conference. And yet he remains invisible to everyone except his diehard supporters.
I personally don’t want a Libertarian for president, but it’s refreshing to see somebody who actually means what he says. You won’t find Ron Paul yelling “Small Government” while quietly working to ban abortion, increase the prison sentence for drug use, deciding which sovereign nation to invade next…
This is probably why so many “Freedom”-shouting Republicans hate him.
