Fox excludes Ron Paul from their forum

First off, Happy New Year, everybody!

Here's an article that details Ron Paul's exclusion from a Fox Forum that will be held just before the New Hampshire Primaries.

"Fox, meanwhile, has invited five GOP candidates to a forum with Chris Wallace scheduled for its mobile studio in New Hampshire on Sunday. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee received invites, leaving Paul of Texas and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California on the sidelines"

The funny thing is that Ron Paul meets all three of the criteria that Fox used as reasons to exclude him from the forum. Ron's response to news of this exclusion was classic:

“They are scared of me and don’t want my message to get out, but it will,” Paul said in an interview at a diner here. “They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative.”

Here is a great music video that is not captioned but is very visually appealing. It relates perfectly to the above news, as it takes a hard look at the biasness of the mainstream media.

Iowa's caucus process will take place Thursday night, January 3rd. For the first time ever, I am excited about a primary in a state hundreds of miles away from me! The general consensus amongst Ron Paul supporters is that finishing third is a win in our book, and that we'll shock the world if we finish second. I think it'll go Romney, Paul, Huckabee, Thompson, McCain, Giuliani, Hunter, but I'm an optimist.
