Inspire Celebs for Ron Paul: Rd 1-Comedian D.L. Hughley=Was Total Success+

Wow!!! What a night to remember!

Why do this? Celebs have a voice in the mainstream and affecting them positively is key to expanding RP's message.

Why D.L. Hughely? Well he was on Bill Maher's show when Bill had Ron Paul on his show for the first time. D.L. also had Ron on his CNN show "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News" in '09 (http://youtu.be/zkVUiaj4C24)so he is active in the political landscape today. He treated RP with respect and you could tell he dug his message.

So I took off work and promoted a meetup to support his comedic routine at the Irvine, CA Improv. We had four of us there sitting in the front row with myself and another (Andrea R.) wearing RP shirts and I got a Ron Paul sign 6inx9in printed out that said Ron Paul 2012 in blue (www.RonPaulDesigns.com style) to put on our table facing the stage for him to see, all done in good taste and not to take away from his show.

I went and picked up RP's Revolution, End the Fed and Liberty Defined and wrapped it really nicely for him with a thank you card telling my story of why him, why Ron Paul and for him to learn the FULL story of him and his ideas. It was a packed house and he was very involved with the crowd and us. The woman next to me who knew D.L. saw the gift and said to give it two him while he was on stage--she gave the cue when to do it. D.L. was blown away!!!! He opened the card on stage and later opened the package. Show ended and security quickly came to us inviting US backstage to meet D.L. and talk more!

We ended up talking for about an hour on the couch about Ron Paul, politics today and why RP 2012 and so on. He was impressed with us all being active. It was so amazing!! Afterwards he gave me his cell number too! He said he would go on record and say "I like Ron Paul".

This is just the beginning! We gotta band together and get active with high profile peeps and is a great way to keep meetups fresh, creative and really leaves an impression on the person you are targeting! Thanks for reading!

PS: I called the Improv and did my research on how to make it all happen, with the gifts, signs and how to meet him to deliver the gift and so on. So be respectful in your approach-we want to take the high road on all activity.

Health Freedom is an issue that could play huge with celebrities

A great many celebrities are quite fervent about supplements and health freedom. Remember how they joined forces and publicized the issue to help pass DSHEA and insure access to supplements back in 1994? Well, supplements are under attack again, as is health freedom in general.

Make health freedom a top issue and there could be huge rewards with celebrities and the 60 plus percent of Americans who take daily supplements and don't want their access restricted. See:

Leave your concerns about language *gasp* and your own class *gasp* behind you. Unite.....

I remember Clint Eastwood saying he was a Libertarian

That would be huge to have him on-board.

Yes, and also...

Lupe Fiasco and Immortal Technique. Also, how about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, I think he's republican.

some others that might help

Some others that might help, rapper KRS 1, the guys from the band Slayer, Dave Mustain from Megadeth.
I'm sure there are many many more, but these seem to already be with us just need to get them to go public.


Let's all take just a moment to thank DL Hughley for being so cool to Dr. Paul! Here's his official Myspace's comments section:


Thank You

My family and I thank you for caring enough about our country that you are willing to take action. If only 10% of our country men could follow your example we would be on the road from serfdom.
G-d bless you Sir!!!!


Liberty = Responsibility

getto manners...I find the

getto manners...I find the guy very direspectful...he lost me very early at "how you doin' Ron?"

Don't be a jerk

Ghetto manners?? Where are your manners?? DL's just a cool guy and that's how he talks to people. He's been entirely cool with Ron Paul thus far, quit nitpicking with a hint of racism because he doesn't have a stick up his butt calling him "Mr. Congressman", "Dr. Paul" etc. It's more about how he acts than how he addresses.

Though ..

I respect your Opinion, I can't help reflect that you seem to be attracted to how it was said, than what was said. We need to get away from measuring a persons worth by how they sound and look, and let them be defined by what mean and do.

Independent, when someone comes

to this forum with an amazing success story of well researched, well planned activism, do you think you might be able in the future to get beyond your personal predilections and recognize truly well done activism?

I see no advantage to anyone of being negative. And if we are to be successful I hope you will join with me in being thrilled that every possible type of diverse peaceful culture is celebrated in a free country of good will to all.

Dude...that's big man. Thank you.

That was a lot of time and work. Gutsy too.

Don't know ya, but am soo proud of ya.


Do You ever read a post and pump you fist? I know some bring tears to your eyes, some make you wanna take up arms, and some make you wanna hug all the people you love. This one totally made me pump my fist and yell "HELL YEAH!!" Let me know if you felt the same.

Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan is another guy that I listen who credits Ron Paul often on his podcast.. He is well respected and is doing fear factor again.

John Mayer, Chuck Norris, Howard Stern, Penn Jillette, Bill Maher, DL Hughely.. are the ones so far Ive seen video of them agreeing with Ron Paul.

Lupe Fiasco should also endorse Ron Paul.

awesome podcast

mentioned Ron paul again on sundays episode with Freddy Lockhart. i posted a link to the ustream in another thread

Vince Vaughn invited Ron Paul

Vince Vaughn invited Ron Paul and his wife to his Hollywood movie premier a couple years ago. I think he must be a fan of RP otherwise why go to the trouble of that invitation.

I'm pretty sure he is!

He wore a "don't tread on me" t-shirt in The Dilemma and was seen reading one of Ron's books in a scene in Couple's Retreat.

Wow! That's awesome! Good

Wow! That's awesome! Good to know. I might have to go rent those movies; I would definitely get a kick out of that.

We should get

great work

the subject says it all. thank you for doing this

This is what it's all about!!

My hat's off to you Travis, well done! You did all that leg work, and saw your project through to its completion. It's inspiring, dude!!

Thank you.

Way to go!

Sounds like you had a great time while helping to spread the message of liberty.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

I Remember that Interview when it first took place..

Great Stuff!

Awesome idea and effort.

Awesome idea and effort. You're setting a great example for the rest of us. Kudos.

That was a great
