Why does the Establishment GOP Hate Ron Paul?

It is absolutely fascinating to watch the Establishment GOP running scared out of their britches over Ron Paul.  Why do they hate this man?  Wikipedia tells us this:  A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Paul is a graduate of Gettysburg College and Duke University School of Medicine, where he earned his medical degree. He served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1963 until 1968. He worked as an obstetrician and gynecologist during the 1960s and 1970s, delivering more than 4,000 babies, before entering politics in 1976. 

Sounds like a pretty down to earth guy to me.  Ron Paul has been married to his wife since 1957 (unlike Gingrich, who is on his 3rd wife) and has five children, one of whom, Dr. Rand Paul, is a United States senator.  According to University of Georgia political scientist Keith Poole, Ron Paul had the most conservative voting record of any member of Congress since 1937."  Yet, the King of Conservatives - Rush Limbaugh - absolutely hates Ron Paul and anyone who supports him.  Why doesn't Rush, who claims to be a conservative first and foremost, love Ron Paul?  Why instead does he call Ron Paul a kook and say Congressman Paul is the only unelectable GOP candidate? 

The answer is simply that Ron Paul won't play the Establishment's game.  He truly does believe in the Constitution.  He was not afraid to oppose the Iraq war back in 2002, going against not only the Republican party but many of the Democrats as well, including John Kerry and Hillary Clinton.  According to Wikipedia:  "Paul was one of six Republicans to vote against the Iraq War Resolution, and (with Oregon representative Peter DeFazio) sponsored a resolution to repeal the war authorization during February 2003. Paul's speech, "35 Questions That Won't Be Asked About Iraq," was translated and published in German, French, Russian, Italian, and Swiss periodicals before the Iraq War began."  He is about the only candidate of any party who can truly be counted on to defend the Constitution, unafraid to speak out against such unconstitutional laws as the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act, and calling out the government for murdering US citizens, i.e., Anwar al-Awlaki, an American born citizen who was declared a terrorist by the Obama administration and murdered without trial.  And Ron Paul's position on the Federal Reserve completely outrages the Establishment.  Paul is the only one who is unafraid to call out the Federal Reserve as the unconstitutional and unlawful institution that it is. 

Wikipedia states the whole matter succinctly:

Paul endorses constitutional rights, such as the right to keep and bear arms, and habeas corpus for political detainees. He opposes the Patriot Act, federal use of torture, presidential autonomy, a national identification card, warrantless domestic surveillance, and the draft. Citing the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, Paul advocates states' rights to decide how to regulate social matters not cited directly by the Constitution. Paul terms himself "strongly pro-life",[194] "an unshakable foe of abortion",[195] and believes regulation or ban[196] on medical decisions about maternal or fetal health is "best handled at the state level".[197][198] He says his years as an obstetrician led him to believe life begins at conception;[199] his abortion-related legislation, like the Sanctity of Life Act, is intended to negate Roe v. Wade and to get "the federal government completely out of the business of regulating state matters."[200] Paul also believes that the notion of the separation of church and state is currently misused by the court system: "In case after case, the Supreme Court has used the infamous 'separation of church and state' metaphor to uphold court decisions that allow the federal government to intrude upon and deprive citizens of their religious liberty."
We don't have to worry about Ron Paul saying that life begins at implantation, as Newt Gingrich has said.  Ron Paul doesn't flip flop like almost all other candidates.  Ron Paul is for real, and the Establiment can't stand him.

Ron Paul has won straw poll after straw poll in the past few months.  You don't know about that because the MSM doesn't want you to know it.  And now Congressman Paul has an excellent chance of winning the Iowas caucus.  And the Establishment is throwing everything they can against him and hoping against hope that something will stick.  Check out this article.  The Governor of Iowa says that if Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucus, everyone should just ignore it.  Reminds me of a few months ago when Bill O'Reilly ran a poll on his show asking viewers to vote for their favorite candidate.  When Ron Paul and Herman Cain won, O'Reilly threw it out, saying it was a false result.  Why does anyone believe these establishment figures?

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad’s rhetorical act of sabotage against his own state’s Republican primary, with his insistence that a potential Ron Paul victory should be ignored, represents an outrageous attempt to tamper with the election process.

As we reported earlier, Branstad told Politico that a Paul victory in the primary should be dismissed, urging Republicans to ignore the legitimacy of the result if the Texan Congressman comes out on top, which recent polls suggest he has a very good chance of doing. Politico adds that many fear “such a result….would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.”

“People are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third,” said Branstad, adding, ““If [Mitt] Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire and the other states,” comments taken to mean that Republicans should “ignore” Ron Paul, according to Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns.

Branstad’s comments represent a treasonous effort to delegitimize the veracity of his own state’s primary. There are truly no depths to which establishment stooges like Branstad will sink in order to denigrate Ron Paul’s campaign.

Far from a potential Paul victory causing “irreparable harm” to the Iowa primary, as Politico would have it, Branstad himself has already done “irreparable harm” to the sanctity of future caucuses in the state.

Branstad is not only attempting to sabotage Paul’s campaign, he is directly undermining citizens in his own state by openly declaring that their vote is worthless, even though Paul is the current frontrunner.

The Governor has indicated said that he probably won’t endorse a candidate before the Jan. 3 caucuses in Iowa.

However, in an Associated Press interview last week, Branstad said he didn’t think Newt Gingrich “has the discipline and focus to be president”.
