Ron Paul has been a guest on Alex Jones' show many many times over the years and just because a man likes to talk to Alex's audience does not mean he is a 9-11 truther. There is no proof or evidence to this statement other than him speaking on Alex Jones' show. If we want to start creating weird connections like this, then anytime Ron Paul goes on the Old Media shows does that then make him a neo-con? A Bush supporter? Or perhaps a Liberal? As Ron Paul has said, we need to come to our senses here. Why are we allowing the media to undermine the growing movement of Ron Paul?
Can't we all just agree that the Old Media is intentionally using this as an excuse to smear Ron Paul? There is no basis to these claims because the interview in which Ron Paul spoke, I don't recall hearing anything about 9-11. In this article on infowars.com, there is no mention of 9-11 either. Now it does say that Ron Paul believes we are in danger of false-flag terror. Did we just forget a few days ago Michael Chertoff said that he had a "gut feeling" we would be hit by al-Qaeda. So it's okay for the Homeland Security chief to use his instincts to predict terrorist attacks-mysteriously not being able to stop them though-but it's not ok for Ron Paul to say a similar thing?
The media is doing a very good job of creating conflict internally within the Ron Paul grassroots. They are experts at dividing people and are using this intentionally. If Ron Paul thought it was a bad idea to go on the Alex Jones' show, then he would not have done so. Since he went on the show on his own accord, the blame should not be placed on the Alex Jones' audience. The 9-11 movement, Alex Jones, and even Ron Paul is improperly being blamed for something that have no control over. And as it seems a good portion of the Ron Paul supporters are pointing fingers to anyone who gets in the way or who speaks about a topic that differs from their belief systems. This is a dangerous mindset and attitude we have embraced and it's causing in-fighting.
We can't afford to be fighting with each other if we want Ron Paul as our next President.

Ron Paul believes in freedom of the individual. He knows that our civil liberties are vanishing rapidly all in the name of the "War on Terror". Ron Paul understands that you must protect all speech whether or not you may agree with it because that is what we are guaranteed by our Constitution, The Bill of Rights and our Creator. We have these documents to guide us through out our lives and to keep tyrannical governments at bay. Well recently our government has become more and more tyrannical and Ron Paul knows this.
As we know the media attempts to smear Ron Paul's name on a daily basis by constantly adding "longshot candidate" to every article written about him. They take his words out of context and intentionally attempt to link him to movements that have a bad connotation associated with them. The media is not hurting his campaign at all in my eyes because their attempts to cover up his message is actually stimulating more support. Human beings are naturally attracted to things we are not allowed to do or see. So when the mainstream media smears or tries to completely ignore a presidential candidate, it encourages people to look into Ron Paul on their own.
Well when a person begins to do research on the matter, they may find themselves on one of the Ron Paul forums that are run by Ron Paul supporters. This is exactly what happened to me. I was looking around for more Ron Paul information, news articles, and video clips and came across ronpaulforums.com
Now this forum is an excellent resource for campaign materials and it's a great place to see information that is not indexed in the Google search engines. However there is a significant attempt at censoring those who talk about any other subjects that the admin does not agree with.
It is a private forum, but it scares me that a Ron Paul forum, a man who believes in individual freedom, is attracting supporters that wish to censor any discussions of a new investigation of how our government failed us on 9-11.
It does not matter if you agree with the official story or another theory, people are allowed to speak about what they wish. Just the mere talk of this is not hurting the campaign. The discussions are not in the general forum and are moved to a section where anyone lurking knows they are heading into an area where there will be debates.
The real people who are hurting Ron Paul's campaign are ourselves. The in-fighting that is currently going on within the Ron Paul grassroot campaign is shameful. Completely shameful! We all want Ron Paul to win the presidency. Our personal reasons behind why we want him to win may be slightly different. However, at the end of the day we ALL want our rights back. We ALL want the government out of our lives. We ALL want to live our lives without having to worry about being wiretapped, video taped or harassed by police on a daily basis.
For those who are trying to stifle free speech on Ronpaulforums.com I urge you to dig within yourself to see why you do not want debates and discussions to take place? Why are you sending a chilling effect to those who are proud, big time supporters of Ron Paul? Those of you trying to stop free speech are driving people away from the forums.
So who's really hurting the Ron Paul campaign? We are! Yeah that's right.
The media does not need to destroy us because we are destroying ourselves by going against the fundamental ideas of this campaign; Individual freedoms.
Gambling911.com Special Contributor Jennifer Reynolds has a lot to say about 2008 Presidential candidate Ron Paul and the continued "disrespect" he is receiving in the media, a "disrespect" not shown by online oddsmakers who give Ron Paul a respectable 15 to 1 odds of winning the 2008 US Presidential Race.
Ron Paul continues to be among the most sought after subjects on the Gambling911.com website. His political web-based strategy has caught the attention of other politicians across the US from Hillary Clinton - who incorporated a brilliant online video taken from the Sopranos finale - right down to local political races including those in Gambling911.com's own stomping grounds of Miami Beach where preservationist mayoral candidate Matti Bower is planning a major YouTube-focused campaign while Commissioner Michael Gongora (running for re-election) already is.
"Paul at his age is the last person you would think to be Internet savvy," says Gambling911.com's political analyst, Carrie Stroup. "For all we know, he may not even be able to log onto a computer. But he's got great people behind him that are pushing the online initiative and it is working in a major way. The appeal is to a younger, more Internet experienced audience whereas the mainstream media tends to gather opinions from a much more mature segment of society who may not be quite as familiar with the Internet."
