  • pt
  • As the world’s only super power, maybe it is inevitable that we are as mocked as we are envied, but America’s reputation has suffered significantly from world opinion against our policies in Iraq. How can we improve our national prestige to be effective diplomatically?

    Time to act.

    The Media continues its blackout of Ron Paul despite the Straw polls he has been dominating and the republican and open caucuses throughout the USA. He has won every debate according to the people,he has the money donations from the people not corporations or lobbyists.Only person answering questions, giving solutions, telling truths and getting this nation out of war now. Yet still on CBS Katie Couric is asking 10 candidates questions and Ron Paul is not included. We have met the enemy and indeed they are in our backyards and in our living rooms.
