Ron Paul Draws Crowd of 8500+ at UCLA
Whenever big gatherings of Ron Paul supporters happen the mainstream media runs for the hills. On April 3rd, Ron Paul held a town-hall style event at Chico State in California and drew a crowd of 6200+. On April 4th, Ron Paul held an event at UCLA's tennis complex and drew a record-breaking 8,500+ attendees. Both Santorum and Romney haven't yet held events as big as this.
As the UCLA crowd welcomed Ron Paul to the stage, Paul responded," I guess they will hear us soon", referring to the blatant mainstream media blackout of his campaign. Paul went on to discuss how America is well on the way to becoming a totalitarian state as our government passes unconstitutional acts like the NDAA. The event was electric and everybody there was ready to take the fight for freedom all the way to the convention in Tampa.
The mainstream media has totally ignored newsworthy stories like this, just as they did with the Veterans' Day March on Washington for Ron Paul. Interestingly, on the very same day Ron Paul held the event at UCLA, FOX news did a story titled "Where in the World is Ron Paul", and wrote how "quiet" the Ron Paul campaign has become as of late. The real question should be: "why is the mainstream media so quiet about Ron Paul". Perhaps if the media did some fair reporting, Ron Paul would might actually win some primary states. This is honestly getting ridiculous. Anybody who has any knowledge of the caucus process realizes that the media falsely bases their delegate estimates off of straw-poll popular votes in caucus states. In terms of delegates, Ron Paul is likely neck and neck with Santorum, but still behind Romney. Paul has likely secured pluralities in six caucus states, which means he will definitely play a major role in Tampa. Share this to get the word out about the media not doing their job and share this to spread the message of liberty.
