Texas radio show host and documentary filmmaker Alex Jones recently made a call for Republican Congressman Ron Paul to run for the Presidency in 2012.
Documentary filmmaker of such pictures as "Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement" and "Fall of the Republic," Alex Jones recently drafted former 2008 Republican Presidential Candidate Ron Paul for the Presidency in 2012, according to Russia Today.
He said: "Just because he has a good chance of winning doesn’t mean he’ll actually win, but resistance is victory, and we need him in the campaign, in the debates, to be injecting real issues and shattering a left-right paradigm and showing that both major political parties and the candidates that they select for the people are controlled by the very same shadow interest that are now openly starting up this new world order, this global government."
Jones added that since President Barack Obama's approval rating is slipping, now would be the perfect opportunity for a "truly Constitutional candidate" to run for the Presidency. He also thinks that Dr. Paul's 2012 bid would "wake America up" and force the mainstream media to report the important issues.
Digital Journal reported last week that the Los Angeles Times and CNN were making speculations that the author of “The Revolution: A Manifesto” and “A Foreign Policy of Freedom” would seek the Republican nomination in 2012 because he is delivering two speeches in the key states of South Carolina and Iowa, which are important states during the primaries.
In March’s Conservative Political Action Convention straw poll, Ron Paul received 13 per cent of the vote, while former Massachusetts Governor and 2008 Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney won the event with 20 per cent.
At the Value Voters Summit that was held in Washington in September, Mike Huckabee garnered 28 per cent of the vote, while the OBGYN did not make the top five.
Nevertheless, Jones believes Paul “would be the only candidate to foster debate on real issues, and would be the only candidate to operate under the Constitution’s guidelines.”
