Jon Stewart wants to know. Ron Paul is the only candidate in either party who opposes the wars. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with it? He also thinks The Fed is evil and we certainly can’t have that as a topic of debate. Arguably, Ron Paul is the only serious candidate since he’s the only only who talks about serious issues. The rest content themselves with sound bites, spin, and vague generalities. And so does the mainstream media.
Our mainstream media is too often a captured entity, regurgitating Beltway spin, deliberately oblivious to the rest of the country. Sure, I disagree with Ron Paul on some issues. But clearly, he is a top tier candidate and should be treated as such.
