“Anyone but Mitt”??

So, it’s “anyone but Mitt”, eh? Let’s look at what we got: Gingrich as “frontrunner”? Considering his comparison to Cain, with all his personal problems – which forced Cain to bow out – how can Newt hold on to this sudden surge in the polls?  With two affairs and failed marriages it’s hard to believe that people are going to give Newt a pass on this when Cain could not get one … regardless of the fact that the Mainstream media seems to be doing just that.

The comparison between Gingrich and Romney holds no stark contrast.  It’s more like looking at twins considering they are both huge Flip Floppers !! Since all the information regarding Romney’s flips have come out he’s declined heavily in the polls. And Newt should meet the same fate as the information regarding his flip flops becomes more widely known.  That is being helped by Ron Pauls new “attack” ad. Which seems a bit out of character for the Congressman but understandable when taking into account Newts machinations to keep Ron Paul from winning election to Congress when Paul had decided to return to the political arena.  What is disturbing about Newts flip flops compared to Mitt’s is that the flips are much more recent.

As I watched the news today with all the talk about where Cain’s supporters were going to go – particularly in light of the “anyone but Mitt” condition – I heard Santorums name mentioned. Not one mention of the only other candidate with double digits in the polls: Ron Paul. Rick Santorum tied with Michelle Bachman at 6% whereas Ron Paul took 2nd with 16%.  The talking heads went on and on about how Cains supporters were looking for someone that wasn’t “main stream” and didn’t fit the “status quo”, someone “outside the box”. And there were, of course, the many mentions of the “Tea Party” as has become common these days.

The media states that Herman Cains supporters do not want “more of the same”.  Romney represents that “same ol’ song and dance” that has been strangling them for decades.   At first, Gingrich seemed like a good alternative.  But after being reminded of Newts true stance on many of the important issues he falls far short of being someone “outside the box” and resonates a tune more akin the “status quo”.  Even Rick Santorum falls into that niche very nicely.

“What about the lovely Michelle Bachman?”, you inquire?  It’s nothing personal … but I think her shrill and whiny voice is the biggest turn off.  It’s hard to fathom this woman as a strong leader. As someone that will do what must be done to protect the borders and the security of the nation.  As easy going as Ron Paul demonstrates himself to be, you might be inclined to think the same of him.  Have no fear in this regard.  Even though the MSM reiterates the same old accusation of Paul being an isolationist – which is far from the truth – there is no need to fear that, as President, Ron Paul would be too timid to take necessary military action.  He was, after all, a military man. (Note: Paul is supported by more military personnel than all other candidates COMBINED.)

So, where are all the Cain supporters going to go?  Isn’t it obvious?  They are jumping on the Ron Paul bandwagon.  Congressman Paul has been an “outsider” his entire political career.  The Congressman has never wavered in his position on the issues for the last 30 plus years and has demonstrated that not only in speech but by his record.  This is a man of integrity.  And that resonates well with Cains supporters and all self proclaimed Tea Party activists (which were born from Congressman Pauls 2008 Presidential bid).

Will Iowa  and other early primary voting states hold a surprise for the GOP and the nation?  Will we see an end to the Gingrich surge and a rise of the “Limited Government” Libertarian Congressman from Texas?  All signs seem to point in that direction.

Media Blackout Backfire?

We have seen how the Media has attempted to manipulate this GOP Primary with exposure time on the news and during debates.  Of all the candidates, Congressman Ron Paul is the most disrespected by the Media.  They cannot claim they are not intentionally running a Blackout against Congressman Paul any longer.  It is very apparent and they have even supplied the evidence of such.  Candidates polling in the single digits get much more talking time in debates than does Paul who consistently polls in double digits.  Let us also note that Ron Paul’s “Plan to Restore America” gets zero discussion time as the Media focuses on Cain’s 9-9-9 plan or Perry’s “Flat Tax” plan (neither of which offer a real solution).

The latest Bloomberg Poll, released on Monday, has Cain at 20%, Paul at 19%, Romney at 18% and Gingrich at 17%.  Basically, this is a tie with the margin of error being 4.4 percentage points.

In the coming weeks it will become increasingly difficult for the Media to continue its Blackout of Congressman Paul.  I predict that with each Ron Paul success the Media will begin speaking about the imagined predicament the GOP may face with a “third-party” run by Ron Paul, totally ignoring the fact that he may actually win the GOP nomination.

The Media Blackout of Congressman Paul has not been as easy this election cycle as it was during the 2008 election cycle.  This may be in part due to the successes of the Tea Party which had spawned from Congressman Paul’s 2008 election bid, a fact that the Media fails to mention in any discussion of the Tea Party.

The Media has been adept at failing to mention that Congressman Paul’s 2008 election run has also changed the focus of political issues around the country as well as the tone of this campaign.

Has the Media committed its final act of sabotage against the American election process?  Has the Media’s attempts to manipulate the nations voters had enough exposure to force the People to seek information elsewhere?  Only time will tell if the Media will continue its attempts to control the outcome of elections or will return to its roots as a “truthful” provider of information.

Honestly, I was surprised to see Ron Paul listed Second in the Headlines.

Note from John Tate

90 seconds.

That’s how much of the first hour of tonight’s GOP debate was given to Ron Paul.  90 measly seconds out of 3,600 seconds.

The remaining 3,510 seconds were spent with the other major candidates:

** Declaring their desire to start wars in Iran, Pakistan, and Syria;

** Rehashing their support for torture;

** Agreeing that President Obama has the right to unilaterally assassinate an American citizen without a court conviction;

** Explaining their plans to continue nation-building, policing, and occupying countries across the globe.

It literally made me sick watching the mainstream media once again silence the one sane voice in this election.  The one dissenter to a decade of unchecked war.  The one candidate who stands for true defense and actual constitutional government.

Ron Paul was silenced, in perhaps the most important debate of the cycle.

You have to ask yourself why.

I think I know the answer.  Both parties have perpetuated the foreign policy that is bankrupting our nation and tearing apart the world.

Both parties have started wars without proper congressional authorization.

Both parties have fabricated reasons for war.

Both parties’ outrageous spending has taken us to the brink of disaster.

And if the other candidates on the stage tonight are to be believed, then there is only one candidate who would break the globalists’ stranglehold over our foreign policy, our Treasury, and the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors in the armed forces.

Ron Paul could change history.  He could save our great nation from its own devastating policies of the past 10 years.

If his voice could be heard.

The media has once again BLACKED OUT Ron Paul.

I have to ask my readers if they honestly believe the media is doing their job of giving you the information you need to make a knowledgeable and educated choice for the highest office in the land? Sure they’re not. They don’t want to inform you… they want to manipulate you. Not only do they want more of the same but they do not want the direction this union is headed in to change. They want to see you in chains.
