Ron Paul would be like JFK. unfortunately another US president assassination would not be a good image at all for the U.S and would anger the public too much and take it too far so it's far easier to discredit him, and to manipulate data to shun him out of any mainstream race to the White house.
The fact is, he at one point was beating Romney in the polls, however all the coverage was on Romney and some other shmuck, and the idiotic American public just went "baaaahhhaaaaaaa" and thought they only had a real choice of 2 people.
The fact he wants to end the Federal Reserve isn't going to win him any steps up, something which many believe was the result of JFK's demise, Lincolns demise and several other government officials. 2012 is different now, and the TV can train people how to think, which is why it's easier to use mainstream media to "assassinate" a character, because it's legal and a lot cleaner to do so
My only wish is to live well. To form memory's which demonstrate a full enjoyable life!!! I am not Greedy
