During the last election the media asked Ron Paul about racist news letters. They insinuated in interviews that the Congressman had written them. They pointed out his name was at the top and he admitted to being the publisher but Paul over and over again explained to the “journalists” that he did not write the five or so passages. Fast forward to the present election. Two weeks before the Iowa election, “journalists” from FOX, CNN, NBC, and ABC all asked the same questions all day, every day. The timing as well as the redundancy of these questions by the media was very interesting.
When a man whom I now consider to be a real investigative journalist saw this and decided to get to the bottom of it. It took only weeks for journalist Ben Swan to uncover in a few weeks what all the other media couldn’t uncover in four years. If you believe the others didn’t know I have a bridge for sale. So why did the media try to paint Ron Paul as a racist? What about Ron Paul scares the media so much that they would do such a thing?
All the months leading up to the election we heard he cannot win. Then when it looked like he might win they did this. Why? Did they do this to any of the other candidates? Ron Paul has been married to the same woman for over fifty years. He turned down the Congressional pension. He didn’t even want to run for President but felt it was his duty to do so with all the corruption going on. Do I support him? Yes, I would support any man or woman with the same attributes.
We hear all this talk about the President being “Commander and chief.” He is, so long as the Congress declares the President Commander and chief. That is according to the United States Constitution. Congressman Paul pointed that out in the New Hampshire debate. “We don’t have a king.” We don’t even have a democracy which is drilled into our heads every waking hour of every day. Benjamin Franklin said a democracy was “two wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner.” We have a republic form of government with checks and balances. You the people make the decisions through your elected representatives, not a king or dictator.
The freedom of the press was first on the list of rights because it is the responsibility of these journalists to tell the people the truth. It is not the responsibility of the press to take money in the forms of grants, bailouts, or large donations to pick the President or any other elected representative for that matter. My hat is off to Mr. Ben Swan for being an actual journalist and providing we the people, the truth.
