It appears the mainstream media has decided that Dr. Ron Paul, for whatever reason, should not be the next president of the United States. However, in an age of widespread internet access, it really shouldn’t matter what the mainstream media decides to cover. In the final analysis, American voters will get what they deserve. Dr. Paul was a legitimate candidate in the last presidential election. He was similarly ignored and belittled by the mainstream media. That notwithstanding, any interested person with internet access could have easily learned everything there was to know about candidate Ron Paul. Instead of opting for the one candidate who was interested in derailing the out of control gravy train unleashed by both the Republicans and the Democrats, American voters once again opted for the clueless, slick talking, handsome, tax and spend guy. It seems every four years they opt for the clueless, slick talking, handsome. tax and spend guy; whether it is the Republican or the Democrat. Dr. Paul is a “throw back” to an earlier time when Americans believed they were in charge of themselves and “freedom” was more than just a buzz word. Wouldn’t it be great if the average American returned to an earlier time when spoon feeding from the mainstream media wasn’t as effective because large groups of people actually thought for themselves?
