What’s worse?

The fact that presidential candidate Ron Paul is a regular guest on a radio show that talks about US government mind control conspiracies; or that, of the current field, he’s the one I’m more likely to vote for?

    When you consider the degree of co-operation between the government, the schools and the “press” in “better government through social engineering”, it would only be natural that the rather crude methods in use today would be replaced by more sophisticated and advanced methods.

    Now, pass me my hat

    I don’t care how fringe he may be, he ought to be getting at least the level of media coverage that Al Sharpton was getting four years ago.

    Instead, there’s a media blackout.

    He’s a valid candidate from a major fucking party. This is an example of pure mainstream-media bias.

    Alex Jones is laughing all the way to the bank. His show is a big hit and he is making a ton of money.

    Ron Paul should think about how it makes him look to appear on the Alex Jones program. Not very good PR.

    Is there a media blackout on Ron Paul? If so, it’s because he isn’t a very viable candidate. Now, instead of arguing with me about his viability, take yourself and your credit card over to RonPaul2008 and make him viable.

    Really, it’s all about the money, and he’s currently at about half a mil, while other republicans have 10 and 20 times more.

    All the press has been about the “top three Republican” candidates. Seriously, the man has zero press. Every minor Democrat got a better deal four years ago.

    If he does not get that critical early coverage, you are dead in the water and can’t attract funds to look like a serious candidate. Unless, of course the media decides to pimp you like they did with Ross Perot.

    Looks like Al only ever scraped together $611k.

    here’s some numbers from open secrets:

    So it looks like he’s gotten almost all his funds from individuals, next to none of his funds from PACs or from federal matching funds, and he’s up to $638k. That’s not newsworthy?
