Granby Library excludes Ron Paul from candidates’ board

To the Editor:

I recently went to the Granby Library, which I have loved since I moved here, just to experience that majority rules.

To my pleasant surprise I saw a bulletin with the different candidates running for election. It was a pretty cool poster with their views on different issues. To my disappointment however, I noticed that Ron Paul was not represented.

I asked about it, and even gave a flier to put up ” only to be told that Ron Paul’s views are not popular enough in Colorado. (And therefore his views are not of interest to any Grand County residents.)

Ron Paul has not been given a fair shake from mainstream media, and now your local library is doing the same. A place for people to be educated has decided for you which candidate is worth talking about, and which one to blatantly ignore. So our beloved public library sadly only endorses the majority. Therefore it takes the rest of the population out of the word public.

I guess that’s what you get when our government, schools, leaders and media tell us we live in a democracy instead of a republic. Majority rules.
