Because Ron Paul has Character, and Dignity. He doesn't buy into our system the way it is being run -- by immature "Leaders" that get along worse than school children. He doesn't respect and UNDERSTANDS that our media are puppets for X and Y parties, for their own agenda -- they aren't agents of truth.
Ron Paul speaks his mind,.. he speaks truth, and common sense. Sadly these are things that a majority of people don't even recognize when they hear them anymore. Instead a majority of people believe whatever news station they favor blindly. Until people wake up and do a little thinking for themselves and arm themselves with the FACTS this type of Ill-run government will remain, get larger, and personal liberties will continue to be etched away. We may already be too far down the process of losing control to a tyrannical and oppressive government that when and IF people woke up with a leader like Ron Paul (or another that has true motivation to restore our country FOR the people) that we simply couldn't repair the damage.
We already don't know where to start to fix our titanic issues -- and as such we just ignore them and play the 'blame game' -- as if blaming X party is going to help the problems we face as we go down in flames.
I am not doom and gloom -- I used to have immense pride in our nation,.. now I am simply baffled at where we have wound up, and feel quite helpless to do anything about it alone. The shift of power is insane -- the People of this nation have no power - even though technically our leaders only supposedly have the power we give them. The fact is a vast majority of the population of this country are sheep,.. that are uninformed and actually believe the pathological lies our current administration portrays -- and even worse SUPPORTS the administration among a country failing in more ways than it succeeds.
If Ron Paul sued the media for slander it would not be consistent with his character -- and I would, frankly, be dissappointed. It would accomplish NOTHING positive,.. he doesn't need money (aside from the BILLION+ to run a successful campaign) -- And he would be dropping to the level of his peers who , by and large, are lost in the world of political games.
I sincerely wish Ron Paul was 20 years younger.. and Americans would get the real coverage of his purpose and plan for America -- instead of becoming arguably too old to hold the office (though I think he would be fine in 2016..) -- instead the media suppresses him, and as such the American people don't KNOW Ron Paul, and what they know is negative due to the media. Ron Paul is one of the only presidential candidates that has stayed nearly 100% consistent in his common sense and smart views and ideology throughout his entire political career. Remember, he is a medical doctor as well.. this guy is not only smart but can and does , for lack of a better word, OWN other candidates in debates -- he is miles above other political pun-dents and yet he is suppressed and slandered by the media on both sides because he makes SENSE. Go figure.
I hope America gets new leadership in 2016 that has half the capacity and ability of someone like Ron Paul -- if not, I don't see how we can possibly sustain ourselves. We have a very short rope with which to survive as a nation. On the same token we also have the ability to be the greatest nation on earth --
