Why Are Young People Supporting Ron Paul for President?
The answer is plain and simple. Ron Paul has a simple message that is pure, inspiring and young in essence, but it’s because of the internet and the opportunities it gives to research information from all sources, enabling a fuller understanding of the situation, which gives Dr. Paul the edge among that demographic. Our younger generations who have grown up on the internet have reached the voting age. They no longer have to resort to their news from the dinosaur corporate media, which often tries to dictate how you feel and think about certain topics.
This is why the mainstream media doesn’t talk about Mitt Romney’s abysmal record of fiscal conservatism as governor or Rick Santorum’s hypocritical positions on social issues or the fact that the 3 candidates not named Ron Paul are essentially the same person with the same nanny/authoritarian approach to government…it’s just that they have an “R” before their name when it appears on the television screen.
People within the ages of 40+ are the majority of people who are anti-Ron Paul, because they did NOT grow up with the internet and do not fully grasp or understand the power of information that the internet delivers. They get their news through FAUX, MSNBC, and often form their opinions based on reports from only one station. Whether you like to admit it or not, you probably have only one station that you watch BECAUSE they cater to your views… but how can you have full grasp on any topic until you hear all sides?
Republicans and Democrats, for the most part, are the same people with a different color tie. While they may differ on some social issues, many policies that negatively effect America the most are the SAME. Both parties rack up major debt, cause runaway inflation and enter into illegal wars. Since 9/11 they have used fear to manipulate us and to trick us into giving away some of our freedoms in the name of “saftey”. Whether you realize it or not, the Obama administration is no different than the Bush administration when it comes to destroying the freedoms that Americans were led to believe, and some still believe, they had.
As long as 90% of the media is controlled by 6 corporations that are in bed with government, we will continue to have these robot candidates with the same agenda.
So, what makes Ron Paul different? Well, just about everything. If you look at everything from his foreign policy to monetary policy, he is against EVERYTHING that the mainstream stands for. Many people try to associate this with a bad thing, but can you honestly tell me that you like where our country has been headed over the last decade? Ron Paul is so different that the media continues to try and discredit him and ignore him, but luckily we have the internet to teach us otherwise.
While we try to encourage you to support Ron Paul, our main goal behind these articles is to help educate our viewers with a new way of thinking. Teach people to look at all sides of a story or topic before forming your opinion. Don’t take everything you hear at face value, especially when it comes from the media or a politician. This is our country and it is OUR job to be responsible when we chose who to operate it.
