Yesterday ago presented the mass media’ self disclosure that it was ignoring Ron Paul for this reason or that. Today, Paul, whose support base has suddenly become the target of some aggressive lateral grab tactics by fellow GOP presidential candidates, was interviewed by CNN’s Piers Morgan, in an Q&A seeking, among others, to find why it is that Paul, who to everyone’s great dismay (not ours) may actually be the GOP’s top candidate for the presidential position, is being slighted in his own view. Paul’s take: “they’re afraid of me, they don’t want my views out there, they’re too dangerous, we want freedom and we’re challenging the status quo, we want to end the war, we want a gold standard, and their view is that people just can’t handle all this freedom, they want dependency, they want socialism and welfarism, so I think they don’t like to hear our views, but I think we’ll make the best of it and we’ll do very well.” Paul proceeds to cover his relationship with Bachmann (disagrees with her views, as she is “not as far from the status quo as he would like her to be”), why Paul’s anti-war program is a challenge not just to GOPers but to Obama as well, with his numerous war fronts, how Paul at 75 is finally resonating with the majority of the US population, but most important is Piers Morgan’s question on how Paul plans on becoming one of the fold and “making himself more electable”, confirming precisely the bias that the idiot media holds against what can easily be the most honorable candidate in not just the GOP’s but all party ranks. Paul’s response: “why should someone soften their viewpoint on defending the rule of law and defending the constitution: that would be foolish. Extremists have been in charge for the last 4 years since they’ve been allowed to print money at will, so that’s why we have overextended ouselves overseas, that’s why we have inflation, depressions, inflations.”…etc. When the mainstream media, and when Rick Perry, understands what Paul is talking about, that i when America will be worthy of a good president. Until then, it will have to make do with whoever win the popularity context in any given day, regardless of the amount of lies uttered in process. After all, as Morgan makes it all too clear, it is all just about “being electable” … the same reason America is currently on the verge of the end.
