Ron Paul attacks eclipsing the real issues?

Ron Paul in the latest polls is the leading front runner for the GOP presidential nomination. And of course, when you are the leading candidate the smear campaigns will follow. The mainstream media mostly ignored Paul, but now the claims that Paul is a racist have been on almost every media outlet. Although these attacks have increased, no one has attacked him on his policies. Michael Tracey, a journalist, joins us to give us some insight on these recent attacks for the presidential hopeful.

It used to be one had to look hard to find anything about Ron Paul on the internet or the news. Then it would invariably say that Ron Paul couldn't possibly win because he is this, that or the other thing, then the article was immediately refuted by the comments section where his supporters would state that Ron Paul was just right for them. Now we have numerous articles daily and still, the comments immediately refute the lies. Why don't you just give up and wave a white flag mainstream media?

He's not an easy target, he is the CHOSEN target because the globalist oppressors who own and run the media, do not want a president that will NOT PLAY BALL with them….PERIOD! Ron as president would turn over their whole apple cart and they simply will not have it! I think more and more Americans are seeing through the electric curtain, largely due to Ron Paul who when you hear his own words, they absolutely do not match what the slanderous media is portraying.

Ron Paul or God help us all!!!

@skinnywhop87 Please, Ron Paul is clearly the most libertarian candidate. You don't have any clue what libertarian means.

@skinnywhop87 False, false (not his fault Cohen was acting camp) and again you don't know what libertarian means.

it's even simpler – the same interests that own the media and government don't own ron paul, hence the attacks. they'll step it up a gear in due time if RPs support continues to grow. one of few politicians with any integrity, regardless of his positions.

@TheEnneagram WTF are you talking about?

This is a tough year to vote because of Obama's worthless job as President and those GOP conservatives and their crazy beliefs.

But that doesn't ignore the facts that he wants to abolish SS,Medicare/caid.

People forget RP is from a generation that tends to be very homephonics… How many people can say they were entirely ok with gays from day one… I bet it took some time to get adjusted. So whether or not rp wrote those letter 20 yrs ago is a not a big deal.. 20yrs is a long time.. But his 30 yrs voting record has his name on it and continue so that is a bigger deal.

I did not know advocating less war and fiscal responsibility is considered extremist… isn't that what we do at home, like not warring with the neighbors or keeping our home finances in order with no debt…

@98bigbutt , yes that is true.. eventually but he did say he wants a transition to keep SS and medicare intact for the elderly and children. Eventually it will be phase out over 10-50yrs… Those programs are sinking with the entire titanic. With medicare, he wants to introduce market competition. Think car insurance (like geico) where you can shop around for the best medicare plan that fits you.

Best is to look at some interviews where he talks extensively about SS and medicare…

@bersberns yeah, it is sad; and very predictable, given that this is one of the most effective ways Russia can fight back against its encirclement by NATO.

@RaykwonDaKilluminati Agreed, the Banksters in collusion with the FED and almost all of our government are interconnected, so you may as well skip everything and go right to your Revolution, because the Banksters have no intentions of giving up their hold easily. The FED and the Banksters control our money, therefore they control the country, people are wearing blinders and never see this, the puppet in the White House just does their bidding and if they stray?

It seems so illogical that so many times I see these statements that Ron Paul can't win since I see so many people coming around to the light that he is the one who stands for that which the majority of people already do. Using logic it shows him in my eyes as the best one for the job. Perhaps then that logic and common since plays no role in the realm of politics then.

The main stream media is owned by jews. The media is also limited by the white house and lobby groups. Corporate interest out weigh common sense in Washington. Sad but true. When a "real" politician comes forward in favor of the public and not the special interest sparks will fly. The stattus quo starts to panic

I wish this guy were a better speaker because he's making good points. Ron Paul's policies and economics are brilliant! The newsletter story is just a distraction. Paul made a mistake as a publisher decades ago. He's not a racist homophobic conspiracy theorist. He is the #1 choice of minorities for the GOP race. Paul could easily win most every state. He's certainly got my vote!

Hopefully the RT/kremlin whores will be out prostituting their hideous selves tonight & will get themselves killed. We can only hope.

I love how the message "Barack Obama needs your help" comes up after any Ron Paul story now…yeah no shit he's your best competition because you suck at your job.

@4390100 True, people are blind to what the Fed is & how it influences politics & economics. But I too was blind to this corruption so there is hope & R.Paul is in a key position to 'Wake Up' America & the world. Well history shows what they do to those who stray or a threat, JFK, Robert Kennedy & Martin L.King are examples. I believe the real power lies in the people because its their co-operation with the system which holds it all together. Have to admire R.Paul's sacrifice all the best to him

Isn't it strange that the only man who would actually allow spending cuts to take place is seen as a fringe candidate.

@Homer177 im not worshipping i speak the truth… the only person who is willing to compromise on anything invovling the middle east…i would say stop trolling but i know if you do it wont make you feel better

@Homer177 ron paul by no means is a perfect candidate, and i not parroting any buzz words, ron paul maybe no different from any other rebublican but as of this moment i would pick him over the other candidates and obama, while your spouting nonsense about the past im looking towards the future the whole point of politics is to choose between the lesser of 2 evils there is no good in politics, ron paul currently is the lesser of 2 evils another 4 years down the track there will be another choice

lifeisaliewithoutaf
Guest

@lifeisaliewithoutaf also i never mention anything about history or freedom or liberty all i have tried to state is that ron paul is the only candidate with a peaceful foriegn policy despite his other more out there ideas which IMO are not deal breakers for me, he maybe no better then the other candidates but his ideas are different and thats a start.

Listen up America, am in freakin Africa and I support RON PAUL!!! Am Kenyan, from Obama's ancestral home, and I don't support him. Am not saying I didn't fall for the whole CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN thing, but I have since been informed. I know who the elite a.k.a status quo is.And now Kenya is in Somalia fighting a war that makes no sense at all and I suddenly realise how what happens in America affects me!! Please America, wake up and vote different, we are counting on you

america, you dont get it.. your so called "leadership" is leading us to ww3 and economic collapse. STOP THE WARS only ron paul has any credibility

@Internetkiddy Hehe, I am American and I AM voting for Ron Paul…I've been a supporter since the last election in 2008. We are fighting hard to convince others to see our way and day by day it seems we gain some ground. But you are right, there are a lot of people that still listen to the corporate media lies. So please don't list ALL Americans as dumb…but I may agree that a majority of the people may be if he does not get elected…but hey, he's doing great so far! Go NH!

"I wish this guy were a better speaker because he's making good points"

It's not Paul's fault that talking sense to cretins is difficult. It's the cretin's fault for choosing form over substance.

Seems like society now a days is more into critiscising rather than creating their own situations. What will happen when we kick everyone out of power who will lead us ? Ron paul?

If RT went to cable and became a mainstream network but kept this kind of coverage that would be a matrix breaking game changer.
