Ron Paul beats McCain in Maine

 More from WestWave99

“Ron Paul is primed to finish second with likely 35 percent of the total delegates.  In the actual election of state delegates the so-called “frontrunner” McCain is far behind Ron Paul.”

Here we have according to the Tennessean a candidate who doesn’t actually exist, beating the media anointed “front-runner”. Now why isn’t that news? I watched the news tonight. Romney and McCain got plenty of air-time, and Huckabee got a minute or two himself. But not a single mention of the name Ron Paul. I have to go to the Daily Paul to find out what’s going on with the campaign.

Any American who loves their country and wants even a small measure of truth should be outraged.

Just for clarity – The Almost Daily Binx is non-partisan. Binx101 is, but not the Blog – we welcome our contributors and we’ll feature and discuss subjects with open minds. This is not a campaign stop for anyone. This, however, is as much about Ron Paul’s treatment as it is about the media that routinely mistreats him in order to influence what Milton Friedman described as, the ‘invisible arm of the market,’ albeit, in this case attached to the body politique.

The original comment to WestWave99 from Gary:
I’m not patronizing you when I say that Ron Paul’s comments about the inane silliness of the McCain-Romney on non-issues was one of the few points of reason and intelligence expressed. He also made salient arguments on other “real” issues and I was turned off by the way he was ignored and cut off by the moderator.
A voice crying in the wilderness with fundamental reason and wisdom, we just don’t listen, do we……..?

WestWave99 responds:

This was the only debate I didn’t watch. I did tape it, but after reading about the debate on-line, how he was marginalized, I haven’t been able to watch it. In 90 minutes, he got 5 questions and his answers were cut-off. I did see the clip of the debate of his answer to the question about McCain’s comment about 100 years on Iraq.
Check out what they did in the Tennessean today. Scroll down the page, and look at the newspaper coverage of the election. We’re down to only four GOP candidates, but the paper says there’s only three:
Never mind that when Paul spoke here, he rallied 1600+ Tennesseans. Never mind that you see signs everywhere for Paul and none for any other candidate. Never mind that Rand Paul has been all over TN campaigning for his Dad. Never mind that he is the only candidate with a campaign HQ.

As a Paul supporter who has followed all news coverage of the election, I’m not surprised about the last debate. Since the primaries started in Iowa, and then New Hampshire, there has been a media “black-out” of my hero, Ron Paul. No mention of taking 2nd in Nevada, no mention of winning first place at the Alabama state GOP convention by receiving 2/3rd’s of the delegate votes on the first ballot. No mention of second place at the Louisiana caucus despite having 500 Ron Paul votes illegally nullified by the state GOP party. Our delegates did in fact register before the deadline and yet were not counted. Had they been counted we would have taken first place. No mention of 2nd place at the Maine caucus on Saturday. Here’s a short article on the black-out, but there are many more:

The question is WHY?

And the answer to that is Ron Paul’s fundamental platform which challenges the stranglehold on our society by the war cartel, the banking cartel, the pharmaceutical/HMO cartel, and the media cartel, just to name a few.

The reality is that a vote for any other candidate, including Obama, is a vote for the status quo; big business subsidies, big government, more war, big taxes, big deficits, and big assaults on our constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The Ron Paul Revolution is not about Ron Paul. Ron frequently makes this statement and his supporters concur. It’s an intellectual revolution. He’s been an educator for more than 30 years. And our bid for the White House is in reality an effort by his legions of fans to get Americans educated about the virtues of freedom, liberty, constitutionally constrained government, sound money, economic reform, personal responsibility, and shutting down the welfare/warfare state, before the collapse of our monetary system occurs. The national debt is nearly 10 trillion dollars. Bush is now preparing a 3 trillion budget to send to congress for 09′, and the democrats are clamoring to get elected and “roll out” their new national health care insurance plan. Who will pay for it? You and me. But bear in mind that we haven’t yet even funded the prescription drug benefit plan. No one wanted the Rx drug plan, not even the seniors. So why did congress pass it? Because it was “pay back time” to Big Pharma who contributed heavily to Bush’s campaign coffers in Y2K and 04′.

You might ask, What’s Going On Here? Why the fear mongering? Why the war mongering? Who’s in charge, calling the shots, controls Big Media, censors/filters the information flow, what’s their agenda & why?

I cannot answer all of those questions for you. But if you are inquisitive and find your curiosity piqued, read the book I gave you, and then learn more what my hero has to say,

That’s enough reading material for at least two years. There’s more, but I don’t want to overwhelm you.
