Funny, during the presidential primaries the media did all it could to either ignore Ron Paul or make him out to be a crazy. Now, in the last few weeks, they all seem to want his opinion, since his warnings and predictions were right.

I’ve seen a lot of good clips, but I particularly like this one from today.

 

I Voted For Ron Paul Tonight February 20, 2008

This was the first time I have been excited to vote. I feel like my vote actually means something important, even though Dr. Paul isn’t going to win the nomination. The momentum that his campaign has gained¬†is really amazing and there is reason to be hopeful about the future, I think.

 

America Loves War February 7, 2008

Pardon the vent, but seriously, what is WRONG with people?¬† I just don’t understand. John McCain?

Supposedly, the American people are fed up with the war, yet they’re voting for the biggest warmonger of the bunch. Everything else aside, why anyone would vote for a guy who is happy to be in Iraq another 100 years and says that there are more wars coming, is completely beyond me. Even more baffling, some apparently believe that he is an anti-war candidate, and that is why they are voting for him. Huh? Ben says this is because he’s against torture (one of the only positive things about him), and people confuse that with being against the war. Good grief.

If people are dim enough to vote for this guy, I guess our country deserves him.

It’s all pretty depressing.

On a side note, the TV is on and World News Tonight has a segment on Super Tuesday, and Ron Paul is mysteriously MIA. Not a mention of his name; not a glimpse of his face. They talk about every other candidate who is still running, giving a fair amount of time to each. It really is dirty what the media is doing to him. Thanks Charlie Gibson for enlightening us all. What a joke this all is.

 

Great Ron Paul Article January 31, 2008

I’ve never visited this blog before, but the article title caught my eye, so I checked it out. It’s is a good read. I think, in particular, it has a lot to say to fellow Christians, and I hope it will provoke thought.

Why Are Ron Paul’s Supporters So Angry?

I have struggled with much of the same frustrations that Baldwin expresses in his article. I just keep asking myself “why can’t they see?” It seems so clear, yet the vast majority of Americans, including Christians, seem more than willing to follow the biggest smooth talker off a cliff. Christians, of all people, should be discerning, yet many seem to embrace a candidate simply because they invoke the name of Jesus. Nevermind what direction the candidate wants to take our country.

Why don’t they give Ron Paul a chance? What a shame that the vast majority hasn’t a clue what he believes and what he could do for our country! We are on the brink of disaster. It seems most want to ignore that fact. Maybe our problems will all just go away, right? Maybe it will all be solved by a tax refund. Ooh, free money from the government’s secret money tree!

Ron Paul has been ignored and marginalized. As Baldwin points out, he has been censored and excluded from debates.

This is a great clip, which apparently was edited from the debate. He speaks so honestly and calmly, despite the snideness of the moderator.

It will be interesting to see what the next year brings. It’s not gonna be pretty.
