First off, I am not on any side, and I do not endorse any candidate. My intention is to show exactly what the title of this post states. Watching the Sunday talk shows and looking at the reporting from this weekend’s Republican straw poll, you would not think that Congressman Ron Paul even participated in the event. Paul came in a very close second to Representative Michele Bachmann in a field of Presidential Candidates. Bachmann received 4,823 votes; Paul received 4,671 votes, which represents a margin of just 152 votes. To me, it appears to be a statistical dead heat, especially when you consider the next closest competitor, Governor Tim Pawlenty, received only 2,293 votes. Pawlenty’s distant third place finish effectively blew him out of the race.

Watch 16:43 - 20:58 Watch the whole documentary to see some of what goes on behind the scenes. This is good. You can't even be mentioned as a top candidate if you are actually serious about changing real issues (poverty, homelessness, ghetto, wars, Federal Reserve, etc.). This shows you that if the controllers of the media --the owners, board of directors, and/or the men the media-heads meet with at the CFR, Bohemian Grove, and Bilderberg-- didn't want Obama, he would have hardly been shown to you or mentioned to you! The media selects the candidates, you then select from those they've chosen. And if it's a presidential race, the Electors then choose the president: Wake up.
