So, if the Ron Paul Movement has struck a chord, then why did he not do better in the race for the GOP nomination? Read his full post here.
1.) Well, because it is a movement that has just started and it takes some a little bit longer to catch on than others.
2.) Because some already had a favorite going into the debates and were not listening to any of the others anyway.
3.) Because most didn't watch the debates at all.
4.) And finally, ah hem, because there is an establishment conspiracy to keep Ron Paul's campaign from embarrassing the Republican Party.
Oh yeah, I know, conspiracy theories are not allowed and conspiracies do not actually exist. Although, if that were true the word itself would not exist and you would not know what I am talking about. In fact we all conspire and have conspired since the first grade and some of the conspiracies become known, like the tobacco industry fudging its figures on cancer or the recent expose of the KGB planting false scientific information in the west about a so called "nuclear winter."
No, I am not suggesting that a bunch of 80 year old Knights of Malta met at a secret location in Manhattan and voted to bring down Ron Paul to fulfill some 1500 year old promise to a French King. Or even that the Masons did it. Or even that the GOP drafted a secret memo. What I am saying is that he has been the subject of numerous meetings of GOP establishment figures and they have exchanged ideas and techniques for keeping him and his minions at bay. I know because I was accidentally and spontaneously in the middle of just such a conversation.
