Re: Why is Ron Paul being hidden from us?
I agree with you that the media is completely out of control. While we are in the midst of a presidential election, the news networks have been covering Brittany Spears and Lindsay Lohan. Our so called "news" is nothing more than entertainment. This brings me to my point about why Ron Paul is being hidden. It's the same reason that no one on the Democratic side even knows about Kucinich or Gravel. The media decides who is mainstream, not based on the candidates ideas, but on ill-based concepts about what the candidate is like. Paul, Kucinich and Gravel aren't invited to debates (which are supposed to be a way to inform the people of the candidates positions) and even when they are, they are pushed to the side off camera. The fact is, their ideas aren't radical. They're moderate in any country other then ours. They aren't hidden because of their ideas; they're hidden because the media decides that if you aren't a Clinton or a Bush or a big state governer, that your ideas aren't valuable. Our so called "fourth branch" of the government has completely failed us. They don't report on elections; they try to predict and decide them. Paul is a great candidate, just like Kucinich and Gravel, but their ideas can't be heard while our source of information is a corporate, cash-driven machine.
