If they had asked me to participate, Ron Paul would be in the lead!

Ron Paul, who gets NO media coverage, unless they want to piously ridicule him, STILL is in 3rd place, less than 4 percentage points behind Romney. Paul is the only candidate speaking the unvarnished truth and it is SCARING the heck out of the entrenched power structure.he has no agenda other than to do what is right and necessary for our COUNTRY, not any special interests or billionaire donors. Just listen to him --- not to the people with a vested interest in seeing him lose....
