If you have been following Ron Paul's run for president, you know by now that he has had more obstacles placed in front of him by the mainstream media and big government than any of his colleagues. He's been cheated in New Hampshire and Louisiana, the media ignored his second place victory in Nevada, and he's been given (on average) about one-third the speaking time of other candidates during debates. This is happening because Dr. Paul is NOT an establishment candidate. Simply put, the corporate mainstream media (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CNN) has been giving him little or no coverage since the beginning, favoring the candidates that would benefit them the most, if they were elected. So, it is no surprise that CNN cheated him again in the California debate, the last debate before Super Tuesday, in favor of their establishment puppets. Why? Well, because the polls show that Ron Paul (not McCain or Romney) is the only Republican that can defeat Hillary in a general election, and there was no way the Clinton News Network (CNN) was going to let that happen.
Ron Paul was asked only 5 questions by the faux-journalist and government mole Anderson Cooper (Yes, this member of the Vanderbilt dynasty was also a CIA trainee recruited from Yale when he made the "switch" to journalism. Just google his name and CIA). Anyway, Paul got 5 questions total, compared to McCain who was aked 15 questions and Romney who was asked 17. That's less than one-third the speaking time. And that's not even counting all the time McCain and Romney wasted during their little lover's quarrel. How could this be called a debate, when one debater received three times less time to make his points than the others? Huckabee supporters should be furious too, as the pastor is being phased out as well. Any sports fan will tell you that "time of possession" is a crucial statistic in the outcome of a game. Luckily, Ron Paul can score the same amount of points in one-third the amount of time. What CNN, "our news leader," really put on was not a debate. It was a complete farce, a lie, a sham, a publicity stunt promotion for their 2 favorite Republican candidates - the ones most likely to lose to Hillary/Obama '08. Even the seating was arranged in a way that the next days photos would show only McCain and Romney in photos closet to the "moderators", as if Huckabee and Paul weren't even sitting on the same panel. Talk about Framing . . . literally.
This is really a shame and a complete disgrace, and the people who will suffer for this deception are only the American people because almost everyone who hears Ron Paul speak wants to vote for him. But people don't get to hear him because the corporate mainstream media minimalizes his participation and ignores their duty to cover all the candidates. They are afraid that once Dr. Paul turns his watchful eye from the coruptions of the other establishment frauds (the Federal Reserve, IRS, the Military Industrial Complex, the Medical Industrial Complex, and useless money pits such as the UN, Dept. of Energy, Dept. of Education, and Dept. of Homeland Security), that he will eventually make an effort to restore the integrity of our media outlets. Its past time that Americans were given the news as it happens, not how it is framed by the corporate media. Mass Communication has become a joke, and we all know it. If it wasn't for the internet, the only way to transmit a truthful message would be word-of-mouth like in a Ray Bradbury novel. And the government is working hard day and night trying to control the Internet. They just might do it too. But even if they do, rest assured communication will evolve into something else that they can't control, just like our will to live free and unoppressed.
But wait, there is hope for America, and even the blind corporate mainstream media realizes that Ron Paul is that hope, and thats why they fear his message. You see, what the establishment doesn't realize is that the Ron Paul Revolution is bigger than Ron Paul. They can silence one man, but try silencing millions, try silencing ideas. They can't do it because this is a revolution of the mind, not of one man, but of the country and it is spreading like wildfire, releasing people of all ages from their apathy, freeing them from the matrix. Ron Paul is just the beginning, the cornerstone that we built around, the voice that brought us all together. He laid out all the puzzle pieces for us so we could get the whole picture, and now we see it with open eyes and open minds. He expresses the ideas that everyone knows to be true, despite the establishments attempts to dodge them and demonize him. He's the alarm clock that has woken so many of us up to the deception and corruption of big Government, their brothers in Big Corporations and their mutual PR machine, the mainstream corporate media.
The establishment fails to realize that the revolution is not about one man, its about a much larger truth movement. Its about exposing their plans of a North American Union and an eventual One World Government. It's about reversing the trend of the last 7 years, injecting the spirit of freedom back into every American by restoring our civil liberties and helping us realize our individual power. Its about exposing the liars in Washington who say that socialism, communism, rigged elections, torture, war and poisoned food, water and toys are all good for us. Its about holding the political criminals accountable for what they have done to this country, and to prevent it in the future. Like Alan Moore wrote in V for Vendetta, "The people should not fear its government, but government should fear its people." Partisan totalitarians can succeed in controling the government, they can control the media, they can even control our elections, but power and corruption will always lead to one thing - Rebellion, because they cannot control the will of the people. We will live in fear and silence no longer, because we will remember that we were once truly free and we can be free again. Its time we all joined together and rallied behind the leaders of the revolution.
