to let more people know that you think what they did is great. Companies like Comedy Central pay decent attention to email, but they often take their social media presence super seriously

Please everybody! Keep the Thank You's going on

the Daily Show Facebook Wall.

Jon Stewart just did us a massive favor.


might be an idea for SNL

I could see this type of direction working into a SNL skit. The Invisible Candidate. I was initially really offended by the blatant msm censorship, but this could just bite them in the a$$. This highlights how irrelevant the msm really is and their blatant manipulation of average Americans. People usually hate that when they realize it.

THat would be the ultimate if

THat would be the ultimate if we could break through their matrix.

What makes this even funnier

What makes this even funnier and more significant is that John Stewart is Jewish and he is defending Ron Paul whom everybody is claiming hates Israel! Or that he is antisemitic! Which really makes no sense at all since Ron Paul looked up to Mises and was friends with Rothbard and not only that but was a co-founder of an institute that was created in the honer of a Jewish man, the one and same that I mentioned earlier Ludwig Von Mises!! I know most of you already know this, but I just wanted to rant.

Thank you John Stewart!

this videos gonna be so popular tommorow i wouldnt be surprised if jon Stewart mentions its popularity on his next show fingers crossed people!

2nd Place is looking better all the time!

That's why I enjoy this campaign SO much! It's Win-Win! If the MSM ignores it, it grows exponentially. If they report on it, it grows exponentially. If they TRY to ignore it...then THIS kind of thing happens and it gets even more strength. This will succeed. It IS succeeding. In order for all of this to really become the general consensus, it has to happen to everyone on their own terms, and in their own time. It cannot be forced. If you force it on people, they will resist. But, when the time has come, nothing can stop it. The time has come!

The media blackout gave the Revolution the Kickstart it needed!

I feel the energy building as they stomp Ron Paul down. The more they fight us, the stronger we grow. What a GREAT DAY!

Viva La Revolucion!


Such a great comment opengee, I got high just by reading it! You're absolutely right, our momentum is growing exponentially and nothing can stop it. Our revolution IS a tsunami and we're riding it!

This is honestly why i love

This is honestly why i love this guy and watch him to this day! he might be an extreme liberal at times but he is actually smart enough to understand what Ron Paul is about and I believe out of all the candidates he respects Ron the most! Good job Stewart!

This poll needs more votes!

Vote on the right side of the story.

Viacom will pull it

Viacom will pull down any Comedy Central Clips from YouTube.

I know ,they have already pulled a few copies from you tube

but here is a place they cant pull it from...


please share it , and digg it ... so more and more people can see this !!!


I have respect for John Stewart in the aspect..

that he has treated Ron and the liberty movement pretty fairly. It is surely obvious by now (It has been obvious for a long time) that this message of freedom and peace is strong and will ultimately become the dominate train of thought. People are waking up and people are realizing they have a freaking voice. It will be used and there votes will count.. in the ballot box or elsewhere , we will prevail.

"You can hold the Ron Paul stuff"

in my head that guy now looks like this.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Why don't you send it to The Daily Show, and give them permission
to use it as a visual exclamation point!

I suspect the Daily Show may be done with their promotion of RP. It my become a theme, we'll see.

Besides, I think they have their own competent graphic staff, who might not quite see things that way.

LOL at the heavy cross you bear :P


I assume you made that? I always think of you as Long Jon Silver because of the long N in your name...

"Although willing to change sides at any time in the interests of his own survival, Silver has compensating virtues: he is wise enough to pay attention to money management, in contrast to the spendthrift ways of most pirates, and is physically courageous despite his disability; for instance, when Flint's cache is found to be empty, he coolly stands his ground against five grown men despite having only Hawkins to back him."

That guy just has the perfect

That guy just has the perfect douche look to him to say something like that

I propose another Jay Leno spot...

Jay Leno had Ron Paul on his show the last time he was blatantly dissed by the media (namely FOX). Perhaps a few requests he will have him on again?

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

Possibly the best thing that ever happened to the campaign

... so far.

Spread far and wide. Everybody needs to see this!!!!

100's of posts on 'The Daily Show' FB wall!

I was really bummin' earlier today about all this.

What a turnaround!! Stewart's wall is being bombarded with "Thank You's"!!

What a great way to end the day!

I love all you guys. The passion that we share for this cause literally brings tears to my eyes nearly every day...and I've never been a very emotional person. It's AMAZING what's going on here. I'm so proud to be a part of this!!

The tears

are kinda strange. I never cry out of sorrow. The only time tears come is with realization of truth or purpose. An interesting physiological response to thought. I use them as a measure in my life. Probably best not to talk about it too much. People may not understand if they haven't experienced it for themselves and may think you're tripping...

I think our posting of thank

I think our posting of thank you notes on his FB wall could in fact persuade the Daily Show people to continue talking about Ron Paul on the show. Don't forget they're in the business of bringing in ratings...

I actually suggested that he have a weekly segment about the Ron Paul media blackout... Could be a great way of constantly ridiculing the MSM.

Paul = Ratings

I've heard this before from folks in the media. When they have Ron Paul articles on their websites they see a HUGE increase in traffic. Not shocking, considering that Ron Paul is nearly ALWAYS trending in the top 20 on trends.google.com.

Ron Paul is a BOON for ratings. Stewart should definitely do this more often...he would certainly benefit from it.
