I have sent this video to thousands on my email lists

I have a few online sites with newsletters etc and while they are not political this sort of video was PERFECT to include.

This is the sort of wake up call Americans need. Many will now watch the news who probably didn't before JUST TO SEE if it is true that no one is talking about him.

A big boost for sure and this video will have a ton of impact and I hope people use THIS VIDEO for handing out (not sure the legality BUT he odds are wouldn't mind who knows about the network though...) as a video collage of other great pieces as well.

What these types of videos do is allow a person to make their own decision about Ron versus us screaming it down their throats.

Let Stewart Know How You Feel

It is imperative that we let John Stewart know that we are closely watching his coverage of Ron Paul, and that we deeply appreciate his support against a media that lilts badly toward "propaganda". We should all make a point of requesting that Stewart invite Paul onto his show to discuss the farce that is mainstream media - MSM is comedic and commentary gold for Stewart! I'm glad to see how many comments have already appeared on his Facebook page... the more the better. https://www.facebook.com/thedailyshow

The media hates Ron Paul

because they know we've never taken them seriously. They know we're not pliable like Perry, Bachmann, & Romney's supporters. They know we've known for a long time that they are propagandists and they resent us for not believing in them, in their narratives, in their spin, in their recommendations for who we should vote for. They indeed feel threatened by us. They know we don't take them seriously and can't imagine a world where the majority of Americans feel the same way. They like the majority to be sheaple, mindless drones, who'll be lead to their respective, pre-assigned candidates according to the media's venal whims. They don't like independent thinkers. They see us as the worst thing that can happen to their future livelihoods. A threat to their ability to pay the bills, to their whole industry. Their industry being that of manipulating the public. But really of manipulating only those who can't think for themselves. Right now that's the majority and they'd like to keep it that way. So they will hate us, attack us, marginalise us, and try to destroy us. We musn't give in. The stakes are high, and they're feeling the push back. Call them out on their lies. Email them, call them, and spread expository videos on youtube, facebook etc. This is an all out infowar.

Lets do this!

Lets ready the troops! Lets defeat this machine we call "The Establishment"!!! Ron Paul WILL win 2012. And we are the reason why.

The only thing needed for evil to prevail is for good men to stand by and do nothing.

Then The "Scattering" Vote Would Be Over 300 Votes..No?

No Matter What The Campaign Does, The Evil "In The World" comes along and Pulls The Rug Out from under you...Figuratively speaking of course..

The Devil is still in Gods Garden. Temptation, lies and dirty tricks everywhere..

There is a war going on in heaven and here on earth there is a war going on for the soul of America.

Live Free or Die Young!

Bring it On MF

Helping the Campaign

This will give us a huge boost. The fix wasn't in...those were just the votes. We did great. Enjoy it, build on it, but don't lament on 152 votes. Those were the totals, and that's the dill, pickle.

Happiness is found alone on a gravel road.

I would like to thank 153

I would like to thank 153 Iowans who stayed home rather than voting for Ron Paul in Ames. Being ignored by the MSM after coming in second is working out great!

The TV and cable "news" shows are in damage control mode now. They have been blowed up real good.

Why Not Thank

The 4,000-some that showed up. Getting defensive is no way to win.

Happiness is found alone on a gravel road.

He needed more...

He needed more than 153...the spin before the poll was already talking about how if RP won it would be insignificant. The only way RP would have been shown respect is if he had doubled Bachmann's vote total. But, that is the way it has been from the beginning. Electing Ron Paul is going to require double the amount of effort of anyone else, because we have to break through the MSM censor. But, that is what we are good at!

Don't get discouraged, get creative. Last election it was sign bombs and money bombs. We need to keep doing those and do them even bigger and then go bigger still and find new creative ways to get out the freedom message.

To submit a complaint to the FCC for unfair and biased coverage


There is a category for
Broadcast (TV and Radio), Cable, and Satellite Issues and
Unauthorized, unfair, biased, illegal broadcasts (does NOT
include Obscene, Profane or Indecent material)

I think the "equal treatment"

I think the "equal treatment" of coverage mostly applies to public airwaves, not really to cable news because those are private, for-pay venues.

What I especially liked was his use

of the anti-war speech and the audience reaction. Lots of left leaners like Stewart and for them to see that bit was wonderful

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

Viva La Revolucion!

that was beautiful

leave it to Stewart to actually say what everyone else is thinking...


has always treated Ron well.
Better than hannitty has.
this is NOT surprising!

War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.

Jon Stewart

made the MSM look like fools. Great job Jon.

Jon Stewart gets huge props for this piece.

Let everyone you know see this. Then email Stewart and Comedy Central to tell them how important this piece was.

I can't complain

about the amount of media coverage Ron Paul has had in the past 2 years. It's just the past few week that it has dried up.

Defend Liberty!

you must have been sleeping

during the past 2 years then "ronpauler"

That's because they didn't

That's because they didn't think he had a snowballs chance and by ignoring him they want to make sure he doesn't.

if they really didn't think he had a snowball's chance

and he "tied" for first place, that would be MAJOR NEWS!!!

Jon Stewart rocks

I let Comedy Central know that the segment, even though it is comedy, was a service to the country.


I commend Stewart. He just

I commend Stewart. He just did us a huge favor.



This makes me sick

Not living in America this fills me with disgust.


This is unacceptable, the best disinfectant is sunlight. Thank you Jon Stewart.

The problem is this technique of marginalising Ron actually works. 90% of communication is non- verbal
When exposed it also hardens my resolve.

PS: Disgust is not a word I use lightly, and would feel the same about about any candidate marginalised like that. What a mockery of democracy.

Yeh its so obvious that the corporate masters are afraid.

I would vote for Paul in a primary but not for the final election.. I have economic differences with Paul and on the matter of choice. But what they are doing to him is just disgusting. He deserves major credit and respect..

From you friendly neighborhood, Libertarian socialist.

I'm all for socialism

as long as it is voluntary.

Complete agreement between 2

Complete agreement between 2 or more people is an impossibility, so a completely synchronized society is just a bigger problem.

Voluntary socialism is called charity.

That's a good thing. At least that's how I read his comment.
