Bless my stars…I’ve had Ron Paul on my MySpace friends list ever since I saw he had announced a candidacy via his website about a month ago. I noticed something “funny” about the media that I had noticed many times before shortly afterwards…this guy gets ZERO press. Not just in the conservative or liberal publications exclusively either…I mean he wasn’t listed anywhere! Why?
Here is a classic Ron Paul interview on FoxNews concerning IRAN from March of 06:
Now you KNOW why Ron Paul doesn’t get support from the Neocon Hawks.
Ron Paul is a TERRIBLE politician (among his contemporaries, he is nearly a pariah for sticking up for the principles of classic conservatism, and his staunch libertarian stance when it comes to issues of personal liberty, OH YEA…and he wants to abolish the Federal Reserve Act.) This next clip shows Ron Paul blasting the Fed for lack of transparency.
Lo and behold, a new day dawns for Ron Paul’s fledgeling efforts to get a spotlight in what could be one of the most interesting presidential elections to date. FOXNEWS has finally broken the code of almost deathlike silence that the media has adopted in regards to this brilliant man and his candidacy. Today on their website you can finally get a glimpse of the Ron Paul that many of the rest of us have been keeping tabs on…read the article here.
I linked to the author of the FoxNews article, Rodley Balko of Reason magazine, and found a pretty good blog that included this commentary as part of yesterdays post:
Which brings me to the most obvious refutation of Medved’s offensive post—President Bush. The same man who famously named Jesus Christ as the philosopher who most affected his thinking in the 2000 primaries has claimed the power to spy on U.S. citizens without a warrant, arrest them without a charge, detain them without a lawyer, hold them indefinitely without an indictment, torture them, try them in secret without giving them access to the evidence against them, and convict them without a jury. Some in his administration even believe the government should be able to arrest journalists who dare expose these abuses, and charge them with treason.
