Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

"We" vs. "I"

notice he uses the word "we" throughout. I really like the approach and the message.

please, fire whoever made this

i could make a better, more stirring video on my canon point and shoot camera, in the time and space of Ron Paul walking from his office to his car. the bg music is incredibly annoying and it makes it seem like Ron Paul spent a day trying to get this take for his fundraising appeal. if this is an attempt to make him look presidential, it's a big failure. it makes me question if he is really ready to fight, or not. Dr. Paul if you are ready to fight i think you'll find people ready to provide back up, but if this is just money that will go to fund campaign for liberty, well, i think that's why your goal hasn't been met yet..

Looks like an Appeal to the Teleprompter

This video is just Bad... I get it. I understand. I donated more, but who put this together? Are they trying to subtly make Ron Paul look bad. It's too long. It's poor quality. It's not heartfelt as it claims to be. Please, Campaign, take this down and post a different/better video that's more straight to the point and one where Dr. Paul is speaking from the heart as he usually does. I guarantee people were turned off from donating by this seemingly insincere video.

Stop Criticizing and Start Donating

It's apparent that Ron really needs our financial support. I made a donation last weekend and thought it would be my last for awhile. However, after viewing this video, I'm going to try to make another donation on Thursday. Look at it this way. We support his efforts now and he wins the straw poll in Iowa in August. A win there will attract more donors, perhaps some with big bucks.

Ron Paul knows its crucial to raise enough money to show

viability. For this reason, he sees that its more important for The Campaign to raise the big money now then down the road. This is why he felt compelled to make the appeal NOW!

As for myself, I will not disappoint him and the momentum in The 2012 Campaign..I plan to donate 100 bucks Thursday..

....For liberty!!

Punch in the gut

I have followed Ron Paul long enough to know that this was very difficult for him to do. It must have killed him to ask for money. Whether you like the video or not it's Ron Paul and he needs help and must need it pretty bad if he asks us. This hit me in the heart. You got it Dr.
This is an investment. I got a lot for my money in 08'. Look how far this movement has come. This movement also got his son in office. Ron Paul is on national news weekly and people are starting to finally listen. My contributions to Ron Paul have proven to be one of the best investments I've ever made for my future, I don't regret a penny of it. But it is important that this campaign comes out swinging early

Learn from this video...

Ron is brilliant enough and authentic enough to talk off the top of his head....No more reading....Ron's honesty is his selling point. Let him speak his mind...then edit the pieces together. The campaign needs to learn from this.

Step it up a notch

On video quality..software and a descent video camera, Lighting and a Green screen is like a thousand dollars.. Some of this money that is being donated has to start going to a better Filmer, Director and Editor..Jerry Day who did the videos on Google Graphs does Pro video and he's a Ron Paul supporter..How much Jerry? :-) No offense to those who made it but it was choppy in the transitions and it was long and redundant. Also use some music from Artists that support Dr. Paul. The Music and Film need to be as alive as this movement is.

"I have found that being rich is not about having the most but about needing the least"

Let's do this!

I am jumping in on June 30th and July 4th!

$20.12 each day.

I've been a professional videographer since 1979. This is atrocious & it doesn't take a jillion dollars worth of equipment to make him look better. As good as I am, Pat Kirby in Las Vegas is even better. If they don't get Pat Kirby on board, I will be disgusted. Also, there's such a thing as direction. Who was directing Ron? I doubt that no one was & there needs to be someone to say, "This isn't right, let's do it over this way."

I too have been doing the video thing for a few
years and have offered up my talents for the cause
many times but to no avail.

And a little sample of my work....

well shot, well paced, nice

well shot, well paced, nice transitions, nice work

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

jon..your right..sorry, i'll work on it..

much oblidged..


I gave $20 in hopes they never make another crappy ass video like this one. If the campaign needs help making inspirational videos that don't have Dr. Paul obviously reading note cards and looking way outside his comfort level click on over to YouTube. I hope this is not a sign of how our money is being spent, fire the company or person who thought this clip was a good idea.!


And the music was lame. Done hating just giving feedback from the perspective of a fanatic that loves RP!

As my country,

Greece, is dying, I hope that you and your colleagues across the so-called party system succeed in re-vitalizing yours. Good luck.

Our thoughts are with you guys

Fight on. The revolution is worldwide.

Yours is the saddest post in a long time.

God help us all.

Update : Message from Ron Paul

To All Those Interested We Need As Many Of You To Get To Iowa To Participate In The Iowa Straw Poll On August 13Th.
The Campaign Needs Lots Of Volunteers And Money. The Campaign Is Doing Very Well, As The Support Is Picking Up. Right Now We Are Hoping To Reach 5 Million, As We End The Second Quarter Of The Election Cycle. Right Now It Doesn't Look Like We Will Make Our Goal Of 5 Million, though It Appears More Likely We Will Hit The 4 Million Mark.

maybe if you didn't capitalize every word, you'd stop confusing the spam filter and wouldn't have to post this ten times. :D
