Ron Paul needs a new TV commercial featuring war veteransSubmitted by October2007 on Mon, 07/25/2011 - 22:45
We all know that in order for Ron Paul to go against Obama in 2012 he needs to win the GOP nomination... Sure getting some Democrats to switch party affiliation just to vote for Ron in the Republican primary is great and all but I'm not so sure that that is enough to assure a victory.
Bottom line: We're going to need the GOP voters in order to win.
I always hear from people in the GOP: "Ron Paul makes perfect sense about his economic policy but he loses me with his foreign policy"
So here's the idea:
There is one subject that seems to play to the heartstrings of most of the GOP and that is the military.
The Ron Paul 2012 campaign needs to capitalize on that and use their strong military support to spread Ron's message of a sensible foreign policy to the GOP voters.
I suggest they produce a video commercial with young and old war vets (It's illegal to have active military personnel on any campaign videos) giving their testimonials of why they want Ron to be THEIR commander in chief. The ad should openly brag about the fact he is the ONLY presidential candidate that actually served in the military. The ad should also mention OUT LOUD that Ron Paul receives more campaign contributions from active military personnel than all the other Republican and Democrat candidates COMBINED!
The ad needs to end with a message like: "Listen to our troops; Vote Ron Paul 2012" or "Support our troops, Vote Ron Paul".
I hope the campaign does this. It's a no brainer.

I am the owner of Richter Studios, an award-winning production company in Chicago. We own and use the finest motion picture cameras on the planet, including the RED One MX and Phantom camera for our productions. I have been a Writer/Director for over 15 years now and have recently worked with Ludacris, Cyndi Lauper, Arnold Palmer, Captain James Lovell (Apollo 8/13), Greeley Wells (who brought in the stars and stripes on Iwo Jima), Bill Kurtis and many other celebrities. Working with U.S. war veterans for a project like this would be an honor and I would not disappoint.
To date, my company has created over 550 video productions and have won over 50 international awards for our work. We do everything from initial concepts and scriptwriting to filming, animation and world class sound design. And above all else, we know how to coach our talent to achieve great performances on camera.
Here's my company's demo reel:
Here's my personal profile:
If you guys are really serious about doing this and want this to be a massive home run, contact me and we'll get the wheels moving on this. I won't kid you, this will cost a few bucks but we can work that out. Perhaps the SuperPAC could fund this.
I represent the finest cinematographers and production crews on the planet, so you can bet the bank that the quality for this would be out of this world. I could imagine having a few dozen war veterans fly out to be filmed on our production stage. With that many people captured on camera, we could not only create a world class commercial or two for broadcast but also limitless high-end pieces for the web as well.
I am also a Libertarian and strong believer in the Constitution. Ron Paul is my hero.
The ball is in your court. Just let me know.
