Ron Paul – Clearly a Top-tier candidate

Ron Paul – Clearly a Top-tier candidate

It appears the mainstream media (MSM) is starting to take notice of Ron Paul as a Top-tier candidate now that he has raised over $5 million dollars in the 3rd quarter. Clearly, this is a feat only capable of top candidates. Yet their bias still prevails.

They act surprised by the fact that Dr. Paul has a large Internet following but is only receiving 2 – 4% in the polls. Have they not considered that perhaps the reason for this large Internet presence is that they will not give him equal coverage on the TV, radio, or in the papers? …or that the Internet is the only forum left that hasn’t been taxed and regulated by the government and henceforth is not beholding to corporate or government interests unlike themselves? They also don’t seem to deem it very important to stress where the poll numbers are coming from. They are coming from calls made to republicans that voted in the 2004 primary. A good majority of this voting block are neo-cons. This is clearly not the place where Ron Paul is getting his support. His support comes from peaceful republicans, democrats, independents, libertarian and all freedom loving Americans and as such, these polls mean nothing when measuring Ron Paul’s level of support.

Moreover, why do they incessantly preface Ron Paul’s name with “the anti-war libertarian congressman from Texas”? They do not preface Rudy Giuliani as the liberal Republican dictator-like mayor from New York or Hillary Clinton as the pro-war socialist Senator from New York.

The media seems to think it is important to continually report, to the point of upnoxiousness, that he is an isolationist. This cannot be any further from the truth. He is a pro-defense veteran and a non-interventionist. This means he does not believe we should invade small third world countries that pose no threat to our national security but does believe we should protect our borders and trade and communicate with all nations. That is hardly an isolationist!

Finally, one last tidbit you won’t hear on your TV. Giuliani, Romney, and McCain all collected lower contributions in the 3rd quarter than they received in the 2nd quarter but Ron Paul increased his by 114%.
