Daily Paul National Talk Radio Call In Contest: Win Some Silver!!

Total Prize so far: ≈ CONTEST ENDED FOR NOW

It should be painfully obvious by now that the MSM is already circling the wagons, in anticipation of Ron Paul possibly running for the Presidency. The fastest cheapest way we can counter this IMO, is to pounce on all of the talk radio radio shows, potentially reaching millions of listeners. In essence, a "We are Change" style info war, waged on the national talk radio show airways.

Talk radio is a powerful way to get the message out to potential voters, and people who are most likely to take action when it comes to affecting real change in this country. ONE person, if properly prepared, can light brushfires in millions of minds. The American Revolution was started by a tiny minority of patriots.

The reality is, that we can sit here and preach and share info with each other until we are blue in the face, but until we broaden our audience, we will not make progress. We sometimes have to get out of our comfort zones, and take a chance. Well, this is your opportunity, not only to make a difference, but to possibly win some silver in the process.

There are at least 21 oz of silver up for grabs. 8 members so far, have pledged silver to award the winners. (Canadian Maples, American Eagles,90% Coins, Philharmonics, Mysteries,)

* If someone else wants to donate silver to the pot, then that would make this contest that much more attractive. Please donate an ounce or two if you feel so inclined. It would be greatly appreciated.

Members pledging to donate so far:
Jefferson 10 oz. (5 Maples 5 Eagles)
SierraHPBT 5 oz. (90% silver coins)
Michael N. 1oz. For the "friendly" DP plug. (mystery)
Dreamline 1 oz (mystery)
Philadelphia Freedom 1oz. (mystery .999)
MMJ Ministry 1oz. (One Austrian Philharmonic .999)
ProfG 1oz. (American Eagle .999)
Mike Lawson 1oz. (Bill of Rights commemorative round from 1991)

Here is how the prizes will be divided.

1st place: 50% of total prize
2nd place: 30% of total prize
3rd place: 20% of total prize

Here are the guidelines:

  • Contest will last 60 days from the date this is posted.
  • One person can enter multiple call ins, to win.

*Note: Boortz is publicly NOT RP friendly, so I wouldn't suggest dropping RP's name. That doesn't mean that RP's IDEAS can't be discussed. Same goes for all of these guys, but Boortz especially.

Also, here is the latest list of "Talkers Magazine's Top 100" talk radio shows. http://www.talkers.com/2011hhindex.html
These shows are also eligible to call in to, and vote on.

The events in the Middle East and Europe, combined with worsening news here at home, have left the door wide open for a variety of subjects to be discussed. Egypt has left us not only with the opportunity to talk about our foreign policy, but also the money that is flying out the door, to prop up these regimes around the world. Also Ron Paul's recent win at CPAC is going to start a lot of conversation as well. We NEED to be involved in this national discussion.

Here some suggested subjects (Feel free to talk about whatever you like, just please be careful who's name you mix with what subject)

  1. The DIFFERENCE between non-interventionalism, and isolationism.
  2. Why the Federal Reserve is dangerous to our currency, and ultimately our way of life. What should it be replaced with?
  3. The reasons for scaling back our troops from bases around the world, and how we can still maintain a strong national defense.
  4. Why it was a mistake to invade Iraq, and why it is a mistake to stay there. Mention 12+ Military bases/ Embassy the size of the Vatican costing 1 billion dollars, being broke, etc..
  5. How Donald Trump is just a stooge in the race to stroke his own ego. How he gave 50k to Rahm Emanuel's mayoral campaign, as well as bankrupted several companies, and lived beyond his means, etc.. (my personal beef)
  6. Why Ron Paul was right in 1976, 2008, and today. Why does everyone sound like him now? (please be careful with this, as you are now representing Ron Paul and can make him look bad if you are not prepared)
  7. Why we could be facing riots here in the US, similar to the ones in Europe, and the Middle East, and what can be done to stop it. (Reference Army preparing for civil unrest)
  8. Why our foreign policy is a disaster, makes us less safe as a nation, and the actual duties of the federal govt. in this capacity.
  9. How we are 8 times more likely to be killed by a cop, than a terrorist. (reference this) http://newsblaze.com/story/20090221100148tsop.nb/topstory.html
  10. Why electronic voting machines cannot be trusted, and how we must have a transparent tangible system we can once again have faith in.
  11. Why foreign aid needs to be cut to ALL countries including Israel (reasons: They have over 200 nuclear missiles, their military tech is 10 years ahead of everyone else in that area, plus it causes tension with the rest of the Middle East, and mainly because WE'RE BROKE)

BONUS: The FIRST person to get a plug in for the dailypaul, will win an instant ounce of silver, regardless if your call is voted as the winner.
Example: "I was wondering if you had read the article on DAILYPAUL.COM about such and such"

Once you are on the air, try and tie one of these subjects (or your own) to what is being discussed at the time. I know it is a tough challenge, and you may have to suffer sitting on hold listening to some bozo carrying on about whatever subject, but the results could be worth it. Getting the message out successfully to potential millions is what we need, whether Ron Paul runs or not.

To enter your call in, you must have an archive that you can link to, or a YouTube of the call. Possibly one of the members here can help convert your call in, into a YouTube so that it is easier for people to listen to.

Some of you may be better writers than speakers. You can STILL help. Please, post supporting evidence and talking points relating to these subjects, to help the call in contestants in their efforts. If we can collaborate on this, it will just make it that much more effective.

DPer Joη, has also graciously offered to set up a poll, so that entries can be voted on privately and accurately. Voting period will take place after the contest has ended, and will last for one week.

If you think this method has merit, then please vote this up, keep it bumped, add your info, or make your calls. There has never been a better opportunity to take to the airways. Things are happening and changing so quickly, that we must reach out to the millions of potential patriots, to try and make an impact on the national discussion.

Good Luck, and most importantly HAVE FUN !!

When does this end?

Anyone know when this ends, and where to send the silver? :)

I was on Savage YESTERDAY!

Jeff Kuhner was filling in for Savage - I got on to say that Fox News is ineffective because they mock Savage/Trump's "birther" position ...

I said since the debt has gone from 9.66 Trillion to 14.2 Trillion since Obama took office; if Obama is ineligble to be President, we can nix ALL the spending his signature has authorized since he took office ... that would save us 4 and a half Trillion immediately ... never mind Paul Ryan's 10-year plan; just BOUNCE this Kenyan!

Jeff laughed!

I don't think these guys are personally reachable(I LIKE the contest though!!!) - all these guys have an agenda in the divide and conquer game ...

Each one of them has a candidate to research and plug; and already ALL of them are coming out against Dr. Paul.

I predict Glenn Beck is a sacrificial lamb for Neo-Con media; he will support Ron Paul once he re-settles after his television show is done - and the other conservative media personalities will then open season throwing him under the bus as a loon(Savage has been doing it for weeks); and that association with Ron Paul will impact Ron Paul's poll numbers directly...

Between World Net Daily and Fox News; pro-Rothchild, and pro-Israel is controlling ALL of the conservative, "tough-talk", horse-crap right-wing media, and they KNOW we are serious, and right about EVERYTHING...

If you get onto a talk show TRY this angle - "Ron Paul is a cut and slash guy, cut from the cloth of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan - he is the ONLY Republican in the race!!!"

It's not the hosts we need to reach..

It's their audiences...I don't think you get points for promoting Trump in this contest though:p

Thanks for the bump.

There are ten days left.

10+ oz of silver for the first prize
5+ oz of 90% silver second prize
3+ oz for third prize
Only one person made a call besides myself.

No one bumped it, and no one took action, other than the great people who offered up silver, made graphics, helped create the post, placed on front page, as well as made a shortcut to the thread.

If there aren't at least 8 entries in the next 10 days, then this "contest" will fade into the night.

Too bad really. To think someone could have won 400 FRN's worth of silver to just make a phone call.

I want to thank everyone who pitched in, and helped out, if I haven't already.


the problem is it's not easy listening to any of those guys with the possible exception of Dennis miller. savage is good half the time but then acts like an authoritarian neocon nut the other half. Boortz used to be pretty good, i heard him go off on the drug war a few times.

once Dr. Paul announces will do it again and it will be big.

"the problem is it's not easy listening to any of those guys "

I couldn't agree more. Like I told MN, It's not like I get up and make a bowl of popcorn, and tune into what these bozos have to say.

I usually only listen if I am in my vehicle, and out of range of our local micro station.

I didn't want to ask people to do something I wasn't willing to do myself, so that is why I called into DM's show.

No one ever said it was going to be easy. It was not easy for Washington crossing the Potomac either.

I still believe that there is no better, quicker, cheaper way to reach potential millions of voters. People do not have to call up and chant Ron Paul. They merely had to bring the ideas into the moronic discussion that usually takes place. One properly placed idea, can change the course of the conversation. Several, properly placed ideas, dominate the airways.

There is a reason people like Michael Weiner (aka Savage) don't like the "Ron Paul people". They make too much sense.

as hard as it is to listen to them...

it can be even harder to get in. Having your talking points ready helps.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

ya, sad deal. If it doesn't

ya, sad deal. If it doesn't get the response necessary I'd be will to bet it could be ramped up once the presidential election is in full swing.

Know your stuff, learn real history and economics @LibertyClassroom.com

"could be ramped up "

I've thought about the same thing. It may become more attractive if one of our guys is running, but it shouldn't matter. It's never too early to get the messages out there.
If silver keeps going up like it is though, I'm not so sure I'd be willing to part with 10 oz...........8)


Great idea :)

Sorry I missed your bump man. Hope all is well.

Here is my entry...


Bill Bennett Show...

Hoping to get a few more pops in on the next go round. This guy had no interest in debate, just the same old tired rhetoric.

The Red Coats are coming!

I just got in on Dennis Miller

Got to crack a joke, and thanked him for the Tom Woods interview. (had to remind him who Tom Woods was) He said it was "one of his favorite interviews".
I planted the seed about cutting foreign aid, because we're broke. I didn't get all my points in, but he surprisingly called for cutting it across the board, except for "starving children". He mentioned taking some heat for his opinions, but stood by his guns about cutting foreign aid. I wish I could have gotten the point about aid to Israel specifically, and how it is one of the things that causes tensions over there.

I should have been better prepared, but did pretty well for off the cuff.

I don't know If I can access the archive without being a "Dennis Miller Club" member.

Call was @ 10:51 am central, toward the end of hour 2. It was easier than I thought.

I tried to tune into Glenn Beck this morning as I was working, and as soon as the stream came on, one of his cronies was talking about "drinking gallons of aspertame and loving it"

*shaking head*

Love it.. Come steal some of Sierra's LOOT!

LOOK AT THIS.. Short squeeze coming... this silver could be worth one heck of a lot by the time the prizes are awarded..

Yes.. 14259 standing for delivery. That is 71,295,000 ounces that need to be forked over to the longs. The Crimex.. errr (sorry) comex, only has around 40 million ounces.. the shorts are going to have to go into the physical market to purchase silver at a time of extreme backwardation, and tight physical supplies.. Silver could be over 50.00 by the time this contest is done.
Great timing Jefferson.

Thanks Jefferson.

He's the man.

Thank you Michael..

Thanks again for the support.

Looks like Tom Woods has created a blueprint as to how to effectively communicate the message. His interview with Miller was outstanding. Maybe it should be added to the OP as a guideline. I don;t think I have seen so much info packed into a 10 minute segment.

I am going to try and get on Miller's show and thank him for the Tom Woods interview, to try and get my foot in the door.

Hopefully I can get through, and get a call entered into this contest. I am also considering doubling my offer of silver.

I don't know what else to do to try and get people involved.

I now see why you were so excited to have had lunch with Tom Woods. He is sharp, and very articulate.


Yes, We'll Out Work Them All..We Shall Prevail..

Organization + Hard Work + Talent = Success

Yea Buddy !

Wow!! What a GREAT idea!

I love this idea. I look forward to hearing the calls!


Nothing more fun than a contest and spreading the message of freedom. Bravo to Positive - Activism.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

I'll throw in an ounce

It'll be a .999 Bill of Rights commerative round from 1991

I'll throw in a 1-oz. Silver American Eagle

I'll throw in a 1-oz. Silver American Eagle to the winner. Hey, as "legal tender", it's only a buck, right? :-)

I started a thread a long time ago about this. Talk radio is conservative radio. Ive called in a number of times to different shows and had wished our movement would utilize that medium. Ill call into Hannity on my way to work today. http://dailypaul.com/108769/talk-radio-pledgebomb

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul


this will take off. There was a thread in the beginning of RP's campaign called "Rolling Thunder". That is what inspired this idea. I don't think it had a financial incentive though. Maybe 3d time's a charm..
Thanks for the effort, and I hope you get through.

I think I am going to go for Beck's show, and talk about cutting foreign aid, to EVERYONE including Israel..
He seems to paint them as this poor defenseless country that would die, if we weren't there right next to them.

They could level anyone in range. Over 200 nukes (been building them since late 50's). Not a member of the Non Proliferation Treaty. 10 years more advanced military technology than any potential regional adversary. They are masters of technology, and weaponry in their own right. Not to mention we're broke.


Congratualations for thinking out of the box and coming up with an excellent idea! In the finest American tradition of creativity and effectiveness - well done!

Street Teams

when i was a kid i remember joining up for street teams of bands that i liked to promote their new albums that were coming out. its my belief that everyone should be their own street team and make up flyers to hand out to everyone they see when they go out in public that tells them about Ron Paul. its a really simple way to reach people that dont pay attention to the important stuff. i dont know how many people know this but just look at yourself and see how many times you gotta hear or read about something before you really pay attention. some are faster then other but on average it takes someone to see something 10 times before he/she pays attention to it. i used to be part of a promotional team for one of my buddies bands and we would goto clubflyers.com not sure if its still a site but they would print up thousands of flyers for our shows for free as long as they had their advertisement on the back of it. and we would go around parking lots housing editions apartment complexes. and we would put flyers under everyones windshield wiper. this would be a great way to help spread the wild fire that is Ron Paul. sorry for my grammar but you get my point.
