THIS is what we're up against! DSCC planning a $1.3 MILLION ad buy against Rand!

http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/archives/2010/08/ds...

The DSCC has reserved air time in October for KY and MO SEN, sources tell Hotline On Call. The committee is planning to spend $4M in MO for a statewide broadcast ad and $1.3M in KY for a statewide ad campaign.

The ads buys will bolster the campaigns of Dem nominees Robin Carnahan in MO and Jack Conway in KY.

Democrats privately acknowledge that KY SEN and MO SEN are the party's best chances to pick up Senate seats. Rand Paul's openly libertarian views in a state that relies on government funding has cost him some support, and Democrats have been hammering away at his recent comment downplaying the drug problem in eastern Kentucky.

If they're too over the top

If they're too over the top with their ads, people won't believe them.

Please explain

HOW is it possible that the liberal commies running for gov't can get certain organizations to legally pour millions of dollars into commercials against their opponents?

Trey Grayson had THEIR coffers working for him, and now Jack Conway does.

What I do not understand is why a similar organization that supports LIBERTY doesn't exist, and to which wealthy capitalists who value LIBERTY don't give their fortunes to, and which orgs can then buy commercial time.

Which elitists value liberty?

underdog,

What wealthy capitalists are you refering to? Is it not clear that today's "wealthy" are beneficiaries of the mercantilist system? We do not have a "capitalist" system, we have a mercantilist system. The elitists do not value liberty, since they have enslaved us, all to their benefit. Welcome to the plantation.

I am wondering where you think Henry Ford sat on all this, since you quote him on the monetary system. Did you think he was a Randian hero, kind of like Hank Reardon, because Ayn Rand thought him so? Ford was an elite mercantilist, not a capitalist.

I hear ya - plantation brother

JMBLiberty,

I know Henry Ford was no champion of Liberty. I don't recall reading that he was a Rockefeller, Carnegie, Morgan type of traitor. But maybe he was every bit as "sold out" and treacherous as these other moguls.

I do quote him, as his quote is spot on, and as many "insiders" have been bold enough to let some revealing truths utter from their lips, that they probably have regretted later.

There HAS TO be multi multi millionaires who value Liberty, who are Ron Paulites. There were during the late 1700s. Many gave their entire fortunes away and were great heroes, and sacrificed their very children, because they would not stop helping the revolutionaries.

So there must exist such rich patriots now. Ron Paul is actually one, as I assume he's pretty darn wealthy.

Why don't we hear of super rich supporters of Ron Paul? Shoot, all it would take is a couple of these to fund organizations which could help elect Liberty candidates.

We need more than money. We

We need more than money. We need grassroots Kentuckians gaining power in the party to push voters towards Rand Paul. We need the young people putting up as many signs as possible. We need the classical liberals to quit being sold out by neo-liberals and to join the Rand Paul party.

he only has about half of his

he only has about half of his goal of half a mil..wish we could do better..

It will be interesting to see

how much the Republican party supports Rand's campaign. He is a threat to both parties, so we can reasonably expect hard attacks from the left and soft support from the right. Even though the party now "supports" him...yeah, right.

We normally vote R in national elections and D for statewide races. But we have R's like McConnell and Hal Rogers who milk a lot of money from the fed, most of which ends up in the pockets of their inner circles. But the people here are dependent and easily led.

Obama is highly unpopular, which will give us an edge too. And Conway is wishy-washy on cap and trade, which would be a death knell for our coal state.

In addition to our donations

In addition to our donations keeping Rand in the attention race, I really hope Rand's new pals at Fox gives him plenty of airtime during that blitz.

Harp on the fact that most of the DSCC money are raised at expensive fundraisers in NY, DC and CA, and that Conway's silver spoon colleagues are attempting to buy him the election. Hannity should be able to demonstrate some rightful indignation over that....

Isn't this is pretty much

Isn't this is pretty much what happened in Massachusetts with their Proposition 1 to end the state's income tax? The tax eaters came out in force and scared the people into voting against it. I would think that the people of Kentucky would be more independent-minded and not fall for these tricks.

Drain the swamp!

They can try buying the ENTIRE TV Network and face us in court!

It's the MESSAGE, not the man who counts!!!!

Any of the comments the establishment makes about Rand are all lies anyway, so smears is all they have.

ONWARD TO WAR..........LETS MAKE KENTUCKY INTO OUR LIBERTY GULCH!!!

Guess that's why today's money bomb is so important

Is there an RSCC?

Are the Republicans planning a buy to back up Rand?

Is there such a thing as the RSCC?

We better get busy! Donate! www.randpaul2010.com

It's the NRSC

They backed Rand's opponent in the primary, and we can only expect them to give minimal support now that Rand is the GOP nominee.

"acknowledged"

that ky was their "best" chance???

interesting choice of words.

said another way:

that it's their only chance to slow the populist anti-status-quo movement to place power back in the hands of the people. if they lose KY, then that stone gains momentum down the hill.

They're sticking their fingers

in the dyke to try and stop the leaks, we all know how that turns out.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Haha

But Rand still needs all the help he can get
