Ron Paul 'Net Storm

Free Market News Network is focusing on the spreading internet coverage of attempts to shut Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) out of upcoming presidential debates.

In fact, much of the social internet and blogosphere has been abuzz lately over perceived attempts by mainstream media and political insiders to stifle Congressman Paul and drown out his message to the American public.

Here's FMNN contributor Anthony Wile's take on "The Ron Paul Problem":

The GOP simply does not know what to do with Ron Paul. He can change the context of the presidential debates with one simple phrase - and indeed he did so by questioning how the "war on terror" got started...

The idea, as Ron Paul expressed during the recent debate, that America was not right in the first place to attack and destabilize the Middle East over the last 100 years or so is something that the monetary and power elite simply cannot stomach. Allow a frame of reference to creep in, allow "libertarian" principles to make themselves known, and the whole phony "right/left" paradigm collapses. Suddenly, the argument becomes one about freedom rather than the U.S. versus Bin Laden, etc.
