Ron Paul isn't helped by the Republican Party because Ron Paul cares about real issues and concerns from his heart and reasoning. He is the only one brave enough to call out real problems and hidden enemies of America like the Federal Reserve and the IRS. He's ahead of the curve and knows we should never even have implemented the Federal Reserve and we compromised our country, nor is income tax even legal. He isn't driven or controlled by corporate interests and he doesn't play the "game" like all the other politicians. Others in the party aren't leaders, it's an old boy's club that stick to the plan at all costs and do what they're told. Ron Paul doesn't fit in.
Ron Paul has risen on his own merit and the Republican Party is never going to support him, promote him, or let him represent the party, so they'll push any idiot in front of him who plays by the rules and behaves. Very unfortunate but that's exactly where we're at and he'll continue to be snubbed.
