Ron Paul's Special Interest Groups



When you're looking to understand the popularity or lack thereof for a particular Republican candidate, all you have to do is "follow the money."

And when you do, you see why big corporations see Paul as a threat. Because there is no corporate special interest winner with a Ron Paul victory. And television and media companies run on the advertising from these big corporations. It's why he doesn't get the positive coverage. It's why he doesn't get the air time his polling numbers deserve. It makes perfect sense.

But why don't small and medium-sized companies see Ron Paul as their best shot? A world where all companies are forced to profit by providing their customers with differentiated awesome, and not just buying off (legislating) monopolistic and restrictive deals that limit their competitors.

You would think Paul would start to get more and more corporate backing - from all the smaller corporations not involved in the backroom dealings who see Paul as their path to the table?
