This isn't complicated. 2020 is a referendum on Trump.

The job of the Biden campaign is simple, and Trump is helping.

The media blackout of Lyndon LaRouche is REAL

The media blackout of Lyndon LaRouche is REAL
January 14, 2012 03:27AM
Lyndon LaRouche is running for president again, just like Ron Paul. He's a credible, real candidate just like Ron Paul.

But the liberal/conservative/elitist/corportate media keep ignoring him.

Why does Ron Paul get all this media attention but everybody ignores LaRouche.

It's just not fair, darnit!

What are his poll numbers? Is he running as a Rub?

I agree that the MSM doesn't cover third party candidates and they should.

But let me know when LaRouche takes second place in a Republican primary.

Cascade,
LaRouche has been running as a Democratic candidate for president for decades. Given the lack of competition this year, he's probably in second place to Obama. Not that the main stream media will report that. It's a blackout.

He's not running.

In fact it seems that Obama's only competition is a few guys who can only make the ballot is a couple states.

Contrast that to Republicans that are getting a pass, in order to run in your states
despite not qualifying in time.

They're not getting a pass. The judge threw out their case stating "They played the game and lost, and now they want to change the rules"

Only Romney and Ron Paul are on the Virginia ballot.

Excellent. And since Virginia trended blue in the last election, a showdown between Romney and Paul should allow us to guage his support.

If Romney crushes Paul in the Virginia primary, will you please accept that he is merely a fringe candidate with no widespread support?

Ron Paul claims to believe that free markets should be left alone. Capitalism is a rational system and should be left alone. If that is the case, he has nothing to complain about. By his ownh reasoning, the media is a capitalist system and is acting rationally. Either he deserves to be ignored, or everything he believes about capitalism is wrong.

Robert. I'll accept that with a caveat.

If Romney crushes Paul in Virginia and Paul doesn't do well in many other states I'll throw in the towel and place my support behind Stephen Colbert.

And as for your second point, Paul has pointed out numerous times that what we have is NOT capitalism but corporatism.

The difference between capitalism and corporatism being... ?

Not sure it matters since I suspect the "capitalist" media (outside the Ron Paul newsletter) is probably no more supportive of his campaign than the so-called corporate media.

Here's a decent read about the differences and explanation of corporatism.

In a nutshell, what's the difference?

It's hard to put that into a single sentence without glossing over many things but I'll try.

Corporatism is collectivist, Capitalism is individualist.

Now that is very, very simplistic and doesn't get into the effects of corporatism on government, business, famlies, economies, etc. The issues of collective bargaining, manipulation of laws and control over sections of society do not enter into such a simplistic and purist contrast.

Since this thread is addressing Ron Paul, let's let him talk about the issue:

"Corporatism is a system where businesses are nominally in private hands, but are in fact controlled by the government. In a corporatist state, government officials often act in collusion with their favored business interests to design polices that give those interests a monopoly position, to the detriment of both competitors and consumers.

"A careful examination of the policies pursued by the Obama administration and his allies in Congress shows that their agenda is corporatist. For example, the health care bill that recently passed does not establish a Canadian-style government-run single-payer health care system. Instead, it relies on mandates forcing every American to purchase private health insurance or pay a fine. It also includes subsidies for low-income Americans and government-run health care “exchanges.” Contrary to the claims of the proponents of the health care bill, large insurance and pharmaceutical companies were enthusiastic supporters of many provisions of this legislation because they knew in the end their bottom lines would be enriched by Obamacare.

"Similarly, Obama's “cap-and-trade” legislation provides subsidies and specials privileges to large businesses that engage in “carbon trading.” This is why large corporations, such as General Electric support cap-and-trade.

"To call the President a corporatist is not to soft-pedal criticism of his administration. It is merely a more accurate description of the President's agenda.

"When he is a called a socialist, the President and his defenders can easily deflect that charge by pointing out that the historical meaning of socialism is government ownership of industry; under the President's policies, industry remains in nominally private hands. Using the more accurate term — corporatism — forces the President to defend his policies that increase government control of private industries and expand de facto subsidies to big businesses. This also promotes the understanding that though the current system may not be pure socialism, neither is it free-market since government controls the private sector through taxes, regulations, and subsidies, and has done so for decades."

I think it's the other way around; corporatism is when corporations control the government. The result is the corporate state, which is what we have.

I think it could be said both ways at this point. There seems to be little difference between the actions of the individuals within the two areas.

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."
Benito Mussolini
