On State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Candy begins by addressing something that everyone has become well aware of: “Ron Paul, you engender great passion from your followers.”

The media has cleverly differentiated “Ron Paul followers” from “Americans” without anyone realizing it. Through simple rhetoric like the above statement, the media has found a loophole to acknowledge Ron Paul’s surging support, while continuing to marginalize him. I propose the following rephrasing that carries the same truth, but with a whole new meaning:

Old Phrase:

“Ron Paul, you engender great passion from your followers.”

New Phrase:

“Ron Paul, you engender great passion from Americans.”

It’s important to remember that the people who have such passion and determination for Ron Paul are indeed Americans with the same rights as the significantly less passionate and often temporary followers of Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.
