Prepare yourself for some harsh criticism. I didn’t mean for this email to sound like  a personal attack but I guess it is.  Your May 27, 2007 article  “Conservatives not cozying up to GOP's big 3” has the unfortunate distinction of being the straw that broke the camel’s back.  So brace yourself….I have a few things I’d like to get off my chest…


SMAME ON YOU! How could you not mention RON PAUL in your “Conservatives not cozying up to GOP's big 3” article?

In my opinion, this was a gross oversight on someone’s part. I can only assume that the oversight belongs to the man who’s name occupies the byline.  Tell me, are you really this out of touch with what is going on in this country? Are you just trying to lose readers intentionally? I’m confused. Is there some covert, secret-society cabal responsible for staff writers like you perpetuating this Ron Paul media blackout? Maybe your being black-mailed by the NWO or the Illuminati? Does a  Free-Mason have pictures of you in a compromising position?


Seriously, what the heck is your excuse John, I’m poking fun at you, and ribbing you a little here, but I really want to understand how you could not mention Ron Paul in your article? According to an MSNBC poll held right after the debate, it was a landslide victory for Dr. Paul. By the way, do you know who sponsored the debate?  MSNBC!!!! So if any poll mattered or was relevant, it seems to me it would be the MSNBC poll. Again, gross oversight, not just on your part, but on the entire main-stream media establishment!


There were almost 80,000 people who voted for Ron Paul through that MSNBC poll. That’s a lot of IP addresses John.  Maybe you dispute the accuracy of this poll because it was an internet poll and not a so-called “scientific” poll?  Ok, then let’s move on to the polling performed after the second debate. The methodology had changed (cell phone poll) but the results were essentially the same.  Thousands upon thousands of Americans resonated with Dr. Paul’s message of fiscal conservatism, non-interventionalist foreign policy, individual liberty, real money,  and , in general, decreasing the size of government in almost every imaginable way. Ron Paul came in second with 25% of the vote, just behind Mitt Romney with 29%. By the way, Guiliani only got 19% of the vote and one has to wonder, how long Americans will allow Guiliani, the professional politician, to use the tragedies of Sept 11 to shamelessly pander to the electorate. How much longer can he get away with painting himself as a hero by using the deaths of thousands of Americans  as his pallet, brush and backdrop?   Make no mistake, Guiliani is no hero, but the man who has the courage to stand up and question our foreign policy and to ask the hard questions like, “Why did we get attacked and was there something we could of done differently?” that is a hero, and that is exactly what Ron Paul has done and is still doing. That is leadership. If Ronald Reagan were still with us, I would suggest that he cozy up to Ron Paul.  Truth be told, Ronald Reagan couldn’t hold a candle to Ron Paul issue by issue but I’ll let you decide if you want to look into that further on your own.


Unlike career politicians who see government as their violent vehicle to be used against others to obtain their social, political and personal agendas, Dr. Paul understands what government really is… an overly intrusive, centralized agency with a monopoly on coercion and force.  Ron Paul understands that the free-market can do wonderful and amazing things that government can never accomplish. It’s amazing what free individuals, engaged in free trade, in a free market ,in a free country can accomplish.  


Here are some of the questions and results from the MSNBC poll:





Next time, do your research before you go public, John.  If this media blackout continues with your newspaper, you can tell your editor that the SD Tribune will have at least one less reader.


So there you have it, there’s my opinion.  Hopefully, you’ll share this email with others at your paper because I am not alone in this matter. I am part of what will become the biggest grass roots uprising in the history of the country. The political landscape will change and we will have a peaceful revolution with or without the main stream media. I just thought you’d like to get in on the scoop since you’re a newspaper man. Take care, and no hard feelings. I’ll give you a pass…this time!


In closing, there is only one BIG GOP candidate, not 3,  and that candidate is the next president of the United States, Dr. Ronald Ernest "Ron" Paul .
