Default Why does the media pretend Ron Paul isn't running?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7M21...&feature=share

The Russian media broadcast this but the US Media didn't even mention it. I'm coming to the conclusion that Ron Paul is the best man running. He seems to be the ONLY candidate who is more interested in the rights and well-being of American citizens than just promoting his own political agenda and boosting profits for his friends and special interest groups.

If our soldiers support Ron Paul, that's a pretty good endorsement.

imo this selection process has been a disaster for the GOP as what i thought it had been ... unfortunately, there are many like you who think RP is the best, but it's doubtful that he gets picked .. there will be a big rift in the party regardless of who is picked and it won't get that person elected . ....

I know. That's my personal confliction. The GOP won't let him get picked so the TRUE Americans who know he's the best man for the job, will write him in. That will split the Republican vote and open the door for 4 more years of Obamanation.

I like many of Ron Paul's libertarian ideas but his foreign policy is naive at best and disasterous at worst; legalizing drugs would be a big mistake as well.

His age (77) is also a factor, he's just too old to be starting a 4 yr. term.

The GOP really shot itself in the foot "reorganizing" the primaries and caucuses after the McCain nomination. It might have been a good idea had there been democrats competing for a nomination as well but with an incumbent it's just pointless.

Romney will be the nominee and the sooner that happens for the GOP the better, in my opinion. All this divisiveness just makes an Obama reelection more likely.

I'd sure like to see his son, Rand, run in the future. He also seems like a strong constitutionalist and is personally and politically fiscally conservative but isn't as eccentric as his dad. I do agree with you though, Mike, that the press basically just ignores Ron Paul. I sure like his honesty and integrity.

I like his foreign policy. Get us out of everyone else's business and take care of things at home.

I'd like to see 8 years of Ron Paul followed by 8 years of Rand Paul. USA should be pretty well back on it's feet and on top of the world again by then.

i could be wrong, but isn't the current foreign policy or an adaptation of it what got gwb re-elected a second term and also got other presidents elected? i understand the whole, let's mind our own business, but i think there is a lot to gain from doing what the US does ... sure it spends money, but it also makes money ... it just isn't being done out of the goodness of their hearts ...

I'm not talking about world trade. I'm talking about the trillions we spend having a US base in almost every other country. We don't need to be the world's policemen and most of the world hates us for it anyway.

I'm sure Ron Paul has some things we won't all agree on, but I can confidently say he's the best of the bunch we have running.

He’s been in public office since the Seventies, what can you point to and say ‘he started this!’ or ‘he ended that!’ or ‘he changed this forever!’ If he hasn’t really made a name for himself in thirty some odd years of constant employment as a professional mover and shaker, can you convince me that he will suddenly become dynamic once he has this office instead of that one?

Even if I agree that all of his ideas are good ones (I don’t), if he wants my vote for President he needs to prove he can make things happen, and he needs to get started about ten years ago.
