Transcript

Gerri Willis: Yep, Ron Paul. Here’s what you’re tweeting me @GerriWillisFBN:

“The only real candidate is Ron Paul. Come on Gerri, you know this by now, everyone else is for endless wars and big government.”

And Frank writes:

“He’s not getting the attention he should, however I do not think he will be the last one standing.”

And Jim says this:

“I believe he is. His plans for our government are basic simple and easy to implement, no story there for the media.”

And finally from James, James says:

“He has no chance to win.”

All different. Here’s your chance to weigh in on our poll question tonight, is Ron Paul being ignored by the media? Log on to GerriWillis.com, take the poll on the right hand side of your screen. I’ll share the results at the end of tonight’s show.

[Break]

Earlier this hour we debated whether presidential candidate Ron Paul is getting enough attention. He basically tied with Michele Bachmann in this weekend’s Straw Poll but she got all the news coverage, not to mention his Texas colleague Rick Perry stealing all the headlines.

So we asked on GerriWillis.com: Is Ron Paul being ignored by the media? 97% of you said “Yes he is” 3% said “No”, and listen to this, we have voters from 26 different countries voting in that poll, be sure to log on to GerriWillis.com for our online question every weekday.

    Is Ron Paul being ignored by the media? lol
    In my local paper they had an article on the Iowa Straw Poll. The candidates listed (with pictures) were Bachmann (who won), Perry (who came in a distant 3rd), and Romney (who wasn’t even there). Ron Paul lost the Straw Poll by less than one percent (28% to 27%) yet he wasn’t even mentioned in the article.
    Ignored? Biased? Conspiracy? Or just propaganda? You decide, I’m going with all of the above.

    Fox business is the libertarian wing of the Murdoch empire. You would never see this on their flagship channel.

    I’m surprised they even showed the results. Her and FOX in general got their asses handed to them by asking such a stupid question.

    How come Ron Paul wins all these Straw Polls, but then when it comes down to the real voting he somehow magically has far less votes?

    Government manipulation of vote numbers much?

    BOYCOTT! Fox News got caught, along with several other News outlets, because of Jon Stewart’s segment and only because of that are these damage control pieces coming out. It’s not over. The only way for you, The People, to strike back at these establishment goons is to use your power of Organized BOYCOTT. Find out who is behind the Ron Paul smear campaign and BOYCOTT them. It is more effective than violent revolution. Destroy their money base. Organized Boycott for Liberty 2011!

    This country is becoming pathetic. Since when did we decide not to vote for a good who we honestly believe has good morals for people who are obvious crooks because, “HE HAS NO CHANCE TO WIN!” Talk about pathetic.

    You support somebody because you support them, not because you don’t think they can’t win. No morals and integrity left. No wonder most people today have so many problems in their lives.

I am young, but only I on Face Book pay attention to politics, everyone else cares about “the movies last week”. Seriously GET THIS PRO IN THE OFFICE NOT SOME CLOWN TRYING TO KEEP HIS AGENDA.

    God bless you Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul is a Saint! Listen to his logic, intelligence, wisdom, sincerity, integrity, honesty, and conviction! He is the only politician who is interested in the welfare of American people and the world. The other jack asses are interested in their own agenda and have sold their hearts and souls to the special interest. Ron Paul for 2012!

    You guys I have a great slogan for ron paul. you know how trying to persuade the average person to vote for ron paul is really hard because they are not that smart?
    well instead of explaining how sound monetary theory is good for them
    , we just keep it short and simple and say

    Ron Paul = NO INCOME TAXES

    They will say “duh, he is just lying its impossible”

    then we quickly counter with his perfect record of honesty in office, and you are set, we got another ron paul supporter!

    The revolution is not just about getting RP elected, he is already my president. And the demorebulicratican regime has no real authority. If u support true freedom, than we must work to educate america. Freedom is truth, and truth is real power. They have only lies and deceit, and just look where that has gotten everyone. As american’s it is our duty to fight for the constitution, and make sure that RP’s msg is heard long after he has gone.

    From the censorship of Ron Paul in 2008 to a man being appointed to the Oval office who isn’t Constitutionally eligible to serve, to police arresting Americans for dancing at the Jefferson Memorial…Other countries have stormed the streets in mass numbers over less. What the!? is wrong with you people? What are you waiting for; the government to seize control of the only tool you currently have to organize.

    Get Angry already!
