A Daily Paul TV Commercial for Ron Paul? Do you think the time has come?

Here is an idea for all of us on the DP.

Lets pool our own money for two very SPECIFIC Television Commercials for Ron Paul. At the end of the commercial, we ask TV viewers to send in their donations to CONTINUE buying airtime to broadcast the commercial. Yes, make the donations pay for continual broadcasting. "Circular funding", self perpetuating political ads... that is the wave of the future, lets catch that wave!

The point is, I want see the financial vehicle created where I and others can send in money for two SPECIFIC television commercial.

Here are the two commercials. One is a late night early morning info-politicalmercial...
Ron Paul 2012: Who's Laughing Now? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvmFw6i7x1A

The other is fast and sweet: "Spread the Message" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H0OI-wUcSU

Who did this cartoon for Ron Paul? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMxca8hhGhs&feature=related

Can you in the DP community help me with this goal? Frankly I just want to send my money in and let others handle the rest. Sorry, but its true. But then I realized, there must be thousands of people just like me, wanting to send their money in for a SPECIFIC commercial or two, and then wanting to see it on TV. It would give me and others great satisfaction to see the Commercial that we funded on TV. Heck, once I see it on TV, I and perhaps a million others will make the call to the 1800 at the end of the video and make still another money contribution "To Keep Spreading this Message"

Surely there are those out there who know one piece of the puzzle. How to buy TV airtime. How to get the video over to the TV company. How to make sure the bills get paid. More over, how to use Google Docs to OPENLY show how each and every penny is accounted for and spent.

It can be done.... but will this be done is up to you.

For those of you who are a bit frustrated with the RP campaign, what they do and don't do, this is YOUR way of getting OUR message of liberty out there.

For those of you who don't feel the Campaign for Liberty will spend your donation wisely, this is YOUR way of getting OUR message of liberty out there.

For those of you who just WANT TO GIVE BACK to our beloved Dr Ron Paul, for all he has DONE for YOU and Me,.......... lets give Dr Paul and the Campaign a GIFT of paid commercials from the R3VOLution!

Can you imagine Dr Paul answering Wolf Blitzer's questions, "Did your campaign pay or have anything to with those TV commercials?" ---- "No Wolf, we had nothing to do with it. We were as surprised as everyone else. But I must say we are pleased that the grassroots are making their voices heard".

Lets make our voices heard....

In peace and liberty,
Treg

Thanks! I like that alot...

Here is a song/poem.... Needs to be put to music.

Well gather around everybody and I’ll tell you a tale,
Of a big ol’ country that was too rich to fail.

The name they gave her was the U S of A,
And the people that built her was as tough as hay.

There was Dynamite Friedman and Gunpowder Mises,
Shoot-em-up Rand and Choke-em hard Rothbard.

They picked out a captain who was lanky and tall,
He was a good man from Texas called, Good Doctor Paul.

Now the Good Doctor Paul, had an eye like an eagle and book under his nose. And yes, the Good Doctor Paul could see it acomin', and boy they did not stop their big government spendin.

But he told the people about the coming catastrophe and they said, no this cannot be.

Then early one morning his heart beat with hope,
The Money Bomb blew right past the top nonstop.

As he anchored his eye on the old thermometer
He knew they would get on the air
With his message of Liberty,

No my friends it’s no accident,the Good Doctor Paul will be, my President.

Ron Paul's Message to OBAMA! What Change?

Perhaps this would be a great political video by virtue that it is straight from Ron's mouth. Leave it unedited, unpolished, no graphics, just straight out as it is.

I am sure FFF would cut us the video footage (I hope).

Campaign laws

Would this violate any of the campaign finance laws? I have read about grassroots advocating for a specific candidate causing the gov to shut them down. You maybe should investigate that.

RP FTW

No it would not violate Campaign Laws BECAUSE......

We are in now way shape or form apart of the official Ron Paul Campaign.

Thanks for the easy question.

Somebody on the DP posted this (see below)a few years back

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peqnSTBnTVk

You can run a TV ad using Google, and it is cheap.

Cheers,

I'm not sure but I think it was?

I'm not sure but I think it was Mr Samuel Langhorne Clemens that posted that,You guys would know him as Mark Twain.If my memory is correct?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

If only the better youtube

If only the better youtube videos were used for national TV ads instead of the lame "professional" ads that were used in 2008 I think Ron Paul would have won by a landslide.

Yes completely !!!!!

If it's not on "TV" then it's not real for a vast majority of our population.

Its not their fault, it's just how they have been conditioned.

This is the BEST way to reach out to the older folks in our country (my parents age) [but my parents have been hearing about RP for 5 years]

Seriously, STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT... how many people do you know... credibility comes from a commercial that runs at prime time (from soap opera thru evening news time)

I'm in.

jaseed's picture

Yes! Absolutely!

Can you imagine Dr Paul answering Wolf Blitzer's questions, "Did your campaign pay or have anything to with those TV commercials?" ---- "No Wolf, we had nothing to do with it. We were as surprised as everyone else. But I must say we are pleased that the grassroots are making their voices heard".
Count me in for at least a few$$!!!

“The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.”

– Thomas Jefferson

Love the Idea

Not sure that those are necessarily the best videos to use though. Wouldn't videos with more positivity work better? Instead of giving credence to the naysayers we could show a compilation of some of Ron Paul's predictions. For example, RP warning of continued funding of bin Laden back in '97 and again in '98 when he said he might take out the Twin Towers. Throw in some warnings about Iraq, the housing bubble, bailouts, urging us to use letters of marque and reprisal instead of a full-on invasion of Afghanistan, pepper in some warnings about QE1 and QE2, etc.

I like your idea of "circular funding" for the tv commercials.

Three videos that I thought were very well done are:
http://youtu.be/S1TM9ionWl4
http://youtu.be/Xtl2ZuJpG9M
http://youtu.be/PVKSfwfy0h8
Whoever wants to follow up on Treg's idea, I suggest you contact the originators to see what can be done to utilize their services.

Nice.

Circular funding.... Better that the ginsu knife for $9.99 !!!

But wait! If you want to see this commercial again, pledge now and we will match your offer!

NO !! You're missing the point,

This is not a commercial for the DP.

This is a commercial for RP.

So what if there are "fringy" people on the DP? We need to drive it home to the Mom and Pops that are watching the "tube" as they have been since you were born... that there is at least one honest politician (a statesman) without all the negative connotations of the "state", still in this world.

Take a moment... Meditate... Pray... Take a deep breath... have a glass of wine... whatever it takes for you to get into a place where you can accept a new future...

Other (new) people need the opportunity, need the place to go there.

There is a better way - government doesn't have to be the solution.

IOW, if they don't see it on TV - then it doesn't exist.

We need to show them - there is another way.

Correct, its TV commercials that we at the DP do for RP

Good point.

We are NOT apart of the RP campaign, so we have lots of FREEDOM.

in a way, I will agree with you.

this is not the best place for people to start learning. way to advanced for someone who gets the "deer in the headlights look" if you ask them what natural law is....
and, you really would not want to show them this....
