It appears that the MSM has begun a campaign against Ron Paul. They really are quite scared of his message with the massive influx of Fred Thompson articles.
They are now stating that Fred Thompson is an alternative to Romney, Giuliani, and McCain. He is not an alternative to them. If you are being fooled by the media's attempt at trying to steal votes from Ron Paul, let me give you some quick facts about Fred Thompson.

2). A quick Google search tells you that he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. This is a very very bad thing. The Council on Foreign Relations wants global government. Perhaps you have heard of the New World Order. Well this group of people are the think tanks behind the agenda. Other CFR members include David Rockefeller, Colin Powell, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Thomas Kean, Bill Clinton, and Paul Wolfowitz. They destroy sovereign nations and want to form the North American Union. They answer to higher ups and will vote for any measure that will further their goals. They believe in the idea that "the end justifies the means".
3). He "used" to be a lobbyist for Westinghouse and General Electric (which owns NBC Television). We do not need another lobbyist in the White House. Didn't we learn our lesson with Dick Cheney giving away no-bid contracts to Haliburton? A company of which he used to be CEO.
4). Linked 9-11 to Saddam as justification to go to war. His quote from a TV Commerical with Citizen United to advocate WAR. He made a TV COMMERCIAL saying we should go to war. That is unbelievable.
"FRED THOMPSON, ACTOR: With all the criticism of our president's policy on Iraq lately, Americans might ask, What should we do with the inevitable prospect of nuclear weapons in the hands of a murderous and aggressive enemy? Can we afford to appease Saddam, kick the can down the road? Thank goodness we have a president with the courage to protect our country. And when people ask what has Saddam done to us, I ask, what had the 9/11 hijackers done to us -- before 9/11?"
5). Served on the legal defense fund for Scooter Libby who was convicted of lying to federal investigators.
"Thompson, who describes himself as a friend of Libby's, is one of the members of the board of his legal defense fund, which is trying to raise $5 million. So far, the fund has taken in more than $3.5 million, an official with the fund said."
6). He supported McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Act and the Shays-Meehan bill. On May 2nd 2003, the courts found Constitutional flaws in the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Act. The other bill Shays-Meehan was also found to be unconstitutional by restricting free speech. On February 12th 2002, the ACLU urged representatives to vote no on this bill. Here is a nice overview of what it really does. Yet Fred Thompson voted yes to both!
Fred Thompson is no different than Giuliani, Romney, or McCain. Don't fall for the Mainstream Media's attempt at pulling votes from a true conservative, Ron Paul. We need to expose this attempt of the media because it is clear they know people are looking for an alternative. Obviously they are afraid of Ron Paul as that alternative since he is not under their control and will not continue their NWO, one world government agenda. Clearly Thompson is working towards an agenda that is not in line with our best interest, which can be seen from his voting record, his past lobbying positions, as well as his membership of the CFR.
