I think from the mainstream media’s point of view, it’s their last resort to simply ignore Ron Paul. And that is actually a great sign. It shows that their ideas are morally bankrupt and the second they attempt to engage they know they will lose the argument.
Ron Paul is not going to be elected to any position of power, that is a given. His ideas on the economy, liberty, freedom, and ethics are great.
The only problem is that he chose politics as a venue for those ideas. Politics will not set us free, it will only keep us enslaved. The day we let go of it, is the day we’re free :)
