Why isn't Ron Paul getting his due attention in the media?
post debate polling results
In the polls after all of the GOP debates, so far, Ron Paul has not just come out as the winner he has come out as the winner by HUGE margins IE; in the June debate he rated 65.5% and his nearest rival got a mere 14.5% with the "big names like Michele Bachmann having a dismal 5%.
In the August, 12 debate the results were very similar. These are the FOX news results and whether you like Fox or not one must admit that they are most representative of conservative republicans. In the far more left leaning MSN polls the margins aren't quite as huge, but he still beats his opponents by double numbers and was the only candidate who came out above the second place "there was no clear winner" option. Ron showed 35% with the next runner up at only 11%, again Bachmann and Romney were very low.
So my question, or point, is that Ron isn't getting hardly any press; and much of what he does get is negative. Why?
My theory will sound like a conspiracy theory, and I am not one to buy into such things but consider this one.
Ron Paul wants to get rid of the Federal Reserve. Contrary to what most Americans believe, the Federal Reserve has nothing to do with the government. It is no more Federal than Federal Express. It is a completely private enterprise owned and run by the worlds wealthiest and most elite. Yet it controls our banks and our money. In fact if you look at any US currency the very top line reads "Federal Reserve Note" and they control the US Mint and the printing of all US currency.
These wealthy elite also control the highest echelon of the media; and it is my theory that they are torpedoing Ron Paul's candidacy intentionally.
Before you write me off as just another loony I will point out one other thing.
People, especially Americans, are saying we are involved in the Middle East for oil. Think about this; we were already buying all of the oil involved from relatively stable existing governments, at the going rates. Why rock the boat and spend trillions of dollars, and kill hundreds of thousands of people including our own, when the resulting oil costs won't change, and will in fact be more expensive?
But guess who owns all of the major arms makers? Guess who owns all of the major players in "Nation building"? That's right it is the same wealthy elite who control the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve not only control US currency and banks they control most Western banks including most, if not all, of the members of NATO and the IMF.
