Public Policy Polling calls Ron Paul "Strongest Candidate"

The popular Public Policy Polling organization recently tweeted the above comments, drawing attention to what has been said by many of Ron Paul’s supporters for quite a while: Ron Paul is the GOP’s best chance at dethroning Obama from the White House. Aside from sound constitutional and moral principles, Ron Paul is simply the most logical choice for the Republican Party. The only reason the mainstream media has been trying to sabotage his campaigns for years, is because with a Ron Paul White House, their corporate welfare would end.

With Ron Paul the GOP frontrunner, will Mitt Romney run 3rd party?

While every other GOP candidate has seen their numbers briefly soar, only to come crashing down as the mainstream media replaces them with a new flavor of the week, Ron Paul has seen his numbers consistently rising. First he was “steady at 10%,” then a “solid 13%,” and on to become “a consistent 18%.” The latest polls have Paul in a statistical tie with Newt, now garnering over 20% of the early caucus-goers’ support. Clearly, the only thing vaguely inconsistent about Ron Paul are his numbers…they just won’t stay the same because they are perpetually going up – much to the mainstream media’s dismay. As he has risen to become solidly in the GOP “top tier,” media pundits everywhere have begun an all out “3rd party” assault as a last ditch attempt to discredit the increasingly popular candidate – asking Ron Paul at every opportunity if he will run 3rd party – so desperate at times as to ask the same question 8 consecutive times in a row with different wording, eventually pleading for Ron to simply acknowledge that he wouldn’t specifically say no.

The days where the mainstream media had the influence to suppress popular/threatening ideas are all but over. To be sure, they won’t go quietly into the night – with people like FOX’s Chris Wallace recently claiming that an Iowa vote for Ron Paul will altogether discredit the Iowa caucuses. But such silly claims really don’t matter anymore, just as Chris Wallace and other pundits are becoming increasingly irrelevant. It’s time for the MSM to surrender their propaganda and wave that white flag – the people, armed with the internet, are finally able to think for themselves.

With Ron Paul’s support recently catching up to the current flavor of the week, Newt Gingrich, it’s becoming evermore relevant to ask candidates like Mitt Romney,

“with Ron being the GOP frontrunner, will you, Mitt, consider running 3rd party? How about a 3rd party run Mitt? Hey Mitt, if you don’t pull through, could we see a 3rd party run? But you won’t rule it out? So if Ron Paul gets the nomination, you won’t specifically rule out running 3rd party Mitt? Hey Mitt, who’s the true conservative between Ron Paul and Newt? Will you support Ron Paul assuming he gets the nomination? 3rd party Mitt?”

Much to the media’s chagrin – the tables have turned.

Watch the most recent “3rd Party assault” on Meet the Press 12/12/2011 – just before the new poll numbers were released showing Ron Paul comfortably ahead of Romney, and in a statistical tie for first place with Newt Gingrich.

Update: Here is a compilation video someone made of the “3rd party assault.” Oh yea, and Ron Paul is now solely in first place in Iowa.

It has taken a while for the mainstream media to cover the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. Now 10 days into the protests the coverage has begun, but is the media spinning the purpose of the demonstration? Marcel Cartier, a rapper and activist who was at the protests, shares what it was like. He is joined by Chris Chambers, a journalism professor at Georgetown University, to give us some insight on why the media avoids covering the protests.
