I have noticed out of all of the pictures of the Arizona debate, only 2 had Ron Paul in there. In fact, most articles about that same debate don't even mention Ron Paul. What is it that they don't want people to know? I guarantee if Mittens or anyone else had over 1,000 Vets and active duty soldiers march on there behalf; all 5 major networks would have been all over that. So, what is the deal?
I've found him to be very weak in the debates, on everything from National policy to foreign policy. Michelle Bachmann called him on it in one of the debates. She should've stayed in the race. But whatever. The fact is that Ron Paul doesn't take a strong stance when it comes to America's safety and well-being. America doesn't need a moderate. We need a strong leader.
I think his tone as well as his body is what makes him look weak. He is clearly the smallest guy up there and his voice is not commanding at all. I wish he would get angry at times, but I thought he showed some BB's when he yelled at the Arizona debate. There is a common misconception about his foreign policy, he wants to stop foreign aid and get out of all the countries we don't need to be in.
Standing up to an entire convention and telling them "the fact that we've been over there killing people and overturning governments is the reason 9/11 happened -- it's called blowback by our own CIA" is not weak.
It's outrageously courageous.
I'm watching Ron Paul on CNN with Pierse Morgan and this old geezer is a straight up dingbat! Like Romney, he can't answer a straight up question about health care and just babbles.
Ron Paul answered every single question presented to him. Pierce Morgan interrupted him on EVERY question - even casual questions about his family.
Just because you were expecting "government should do this" as an answer, doesn't mean he didn't answer the questions.
His thinking is very radical and if they report on him, maybe more people will start to listen to him and think what he says makes some sense. Those people at the top of the media food chain who control what the media puts out only want the public to hear what they want us to know. That way they can better control and manipulate public opinion.
It's clear why: Ron Paul will take away all their news stories by being sane.
The media moguls have illegal immigrants staffing their homes. The gardeners, the cooks, the maids, the nannies, the chauffeurs, the staff at their favorite hotels and private clubs. These rich and powerful people fear direct and personal retribution against themselves and their family members if they fail to bow and kowtow to the organized crime cartels running the human trafficking slave trade. Ron Paul would enforce immigration laws, the other candidates, not so much. And that’s all there is to it.
Ron Paul is for dismantling the Status Quo. A lot of powerful people have gotten quite comfortable.Do you think they want to give that up.
They don't and won't ever take Paul seriously. Some of his ideas are popular, but he has a tendency to go off the beaten path, therefore they dismiss him.
Pierse is tearing him apart. Can you imagine this guy going against Obama? Ron Paul needs to quit politics and take up checkers or shuffleboard.
Ron Paul beats Obama in national polls.
Pierse did NOT tear Paul apart. He just talked over Paul.
Ron Paul cleaned the floor with Morgan. Here's proof. Start at the 10 minute mark:
"Why shouldn't they depend on the British? Why don't the British take care of them? They have a lot of influence over there. Why don't the British kids go over there and die?"
Silence. the ONE time in the ENTIRE interview when Piers Morgan shut his mouth.
Ron Paul owned Piers Morgan LIKE A BOSS!
Piers - a British citizen - is telling Ron Paul - an American Congressman - that the US should send it's children to die for some government that 50% (or more) of the citizenry can't locate on a map.
Ron Paul, correctly, responds with, basically, you're not a citizen, and your government apparently doesn't care about the situation. Who are you to tell us how to kill our children and spend our money?
Hello. I wrote an hub in response to "Why is the media so afraid of Ron Paul" by 901Chris: "Why the Media Fears Ron Paul" at this link http://maryneal.hubpages.com/hub/Why-th … s-Ron-Paul
I had trouble finding your question again to announce my hub response. At first, you were on the first page of questions. This is a good question that I started responding to in the regular answer field, but it got so long that I made a hub.
Excellent question! Thanks.
They are not afraid of him...
as he is a vampire, it is very difficult to capture his image..either in a mirror, or on video
Why are they afraid of him?
His supporters are doing their job for them:
Boldly The reason the media is excluding Ron Paul is because they are slanted to the left and, more or less, control it.
Ron Paul gives solutions that make sense practically, but they don't jibe with the way the political system works. The media and most every politician in DC wants the status-quo. Why do we never see a legit third party? Both sides will attack, infiltrate, or water it down to remove the threat. With only two choices, either party is only one election away from power. The media plays the game with the parties. It's as much about compartmentalizing power and financing as it is anything else, IMO.
I think a ticket combining Ron Paul and Ru Paul would captivate America...
I thought Ru was dead?? Or maybe most people under 25 don't know who that is, and most younger people vote Ron Paul? I guess they were better off not knowing who rupaul is.
The real question, "Why are they afraid of Buddy Roemer?"
Exactly. He's not taking any corporate money. Why--he doesn't exist!
Maybe he doesn't exist in Massachusetts . . . down here, everyone stood up and took note when the FDIC couldn’t close his bank and give the cash and assets to a TARP recipient. He did not foreclose on borrowers, but worked with them.
Democrats and Rebublicans get out of the way and let us get the job done right!

Over the last couple of days a lot of media attention has gone towards a conspiracy theory involving Ron Paul and Mitt Romney banding together. They seem to be pushing it pretty hard which in my mind means that they are trying to paint Ron Paul as a sell-out. What are your thoughts?

It strikes me that there are 2 distinct types of people voting in the Republican primaries and caucuses: partisans and libertarians.The partisans are about 80%; they might have their favorite candidate, but in the end, they'll vote for whoever is up against Barack Hussein Ali Baba Mohammad...

I just stumbled on this story and am really impressed. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/2 … 09102.htmlThe story is about Ron Paul's stance that the fed should take a hands off approach to medical marijuana, that it should be down to the states. My only worry is that Obama campaigned...
