Can someone just make a cut

Can someone just make a cut of Ron Paul and Gary Johnson? I don't feel like listening to statists...

Great stuff, thanks!

Great stuff, thanks!

"Another term for preventive war is aggressive war - starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition." -Ron Paul


Please subscribe to my channel as a fellow Ron Paul supporter. I have one video of Paul's visit to LA but most of the other stuff if jut humor. It would help me out.




Dr. Paul rocked in this debate. Also I liked Gary Johnson and his choice for VP. But there is a question: why Dr. Paul told that he is the third? He beats all other candidates in every single poll.
P.S. For those who missed the whole debate >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XitvtG-654Y

That's not exactly true. He

That's not exactly true. He beats people in online polls. We must be honest with ourselves. We can't win if we think we already are winning. We're not.

Yes you so right

I work in media. 6.1 million TVs were on the FOX debate. That's about 3 to 4 times the Internet viewership. TV and morning radio still lead in America as the source of News. Obama has 40 million in his campaign budget, and has spent 80 million, PBS will only support a democrat, Comcast/NBC had given Obama campaign a million and Dreamwork execs have given him 1.5 million.

Ron Paul is the only person that can "restore America", and I support him 110 %. But we have must be real,it is a real battle ahead. Ron is polling about 14%. Teams in each state need to work hard, and we must get more traditional media coverage. Good news it is early, and if we TEAM together smartly, we can make a real race. Dr Paul truly is the best candidate.

Good article Is Ron Paul Right on Foreign Policy?

This article is getting a lot of readers and comments mostly favorable to Paul. Encouraging to see on a conservative site. You can read the comments including mine and click "like" for the pro Paul comments. It's important that we counter the neo-con hype and ad hominems against Paul as this issue is so pivotal in many voters hearts and minds.

Is Ron Paul Right on Foreign Policy? www.redcounty.com/content/ron-paul-right-foreign-policy

I taped the debate and have

I taped the debate and have been watching it in bits and pieces. When they got to Foreign Policy I noticed that the "word cloud" that they showed before every section included only one candidates name. Ron Paul.

Yet they ignored him for that question, its pretty astounding. Too bad Ron didn't know that before hand and could have pointed out that little detail.

TheBMT can you list the advertisers on the broadcast ?

Would like to set up Tweets that Fox's News has a biased preference on the candidates.
I had to watch online, I was at work.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

It will take some time,

It will take some time, probably could get it done tomorrow sometime.


Need to campaign to sponsers not to support FOX until it cleans up it's coverage.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

please read******

today i have talked to this man who is wealthy, has inside information, etc. he told me that silver is very much devalued, it's price right now should be about 170$/oz. it should be the 1/10th of the price of gold. he said in about two years silver should be around 300/oz and gold about 3000/oz. keep in mind that is the "manipulated market value". not the real value. i mentioned Ron Paul to him and he agreed that he is the only true person running for president.He said if Ron Paul wins, he clearly said that they will kill him. He said most likely obama will get his 4 more years then here comes ww3. He also mentioned Romney that he has a good chance. he knows all about the media ignoring Ron Paul, etc. He was very glad that that i was aware of these things.

he said ww3 will take place, US will invade canada in near future. also there will be civil war.

he also said that something will take place in couple years on september 23. He pretty clearly stated that the U.S is pretty much done if nothing "nice" happens. he kept repeating 2012 concerning the "something to happen" that might change things for the good.

also he said that those people lets say "government" or you choose to call them, want people to have dumb education and make no more then 50K. He also said that people will be living in government houses (not the way he called it but i forgot how he said it).

he also said that the U.S will make illegal to own gold/silver. they will want it back and at a very low price, if you choose not to they you get jailed. also there will be time when youll be not allowed to leave the U.S for more then 2 weeks, if you do, and you come back youll get jailed.

He said those people do not care about anyone or anything. he said theyll turn this country into africa if not worse (poverty)

he said muslims will take over europe. which is already happening. he said there is some green group, also soon some new muslim group will emerge there.

i asked him what he thinks of russia and south america, he said both are crazy countries.

as far as freedom goes he said the only places are canada or australia. canada will get evaded by the U.S. china will put millions of people onto the shores of australia, and australia will not be able to do much about it. He said that australia is the best place as far as he knows.

He also said that oil will soon go up to 200$ a barrel which will be equivalent to about 8$/ gallon. which is what gas costs now in europe. He said prices there will most likely quadruple. i asked him if it'll go to about 18/gal he laughed and said probably about 24/gallon.

FOX after debate poll is back up...

Need I say more? Yes, RP is winning again.

Fox press release kit contains no Ron Paul

The Fox press release kit to all media contained zero Ron Paul or Herman Cain sound clips from the debate.

Please let's start a campaign on Twitter to let advertisers know we feel Fox is bias. One Tweet on each sponsors page by a hundred if us make a huge impact. Someone post a list of the sponsors here so we can write a clean Tweet we can support or endorse products advertised on Fox until they clean up the show.

I cannot stress how important getting Ron's soundbytes to the media is. List of sponsers please.

Thanks to all of you.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

After the first ?

Ron meant to say "I yield the rest of my time to Gary Johnson"

VOTE POLL --> Let OReilly

VOTE POLL --> Let OReilly know Who won the Fox News-Google GOP debate

Thanks for the link

This is a good way to force the mainstream media to acknowledge Ron Paul. They can't ignore EVERY poll they don't agree with...can they?

Ron Paul is way ahead on this poll as of now, lets keep the votes coming in.

Our ignorance and apathy is what greases the wheels of the machine...

We need more signatures to END THE FED!!!!

Please sign the petition to END THE FED!



That petition calls for the end of the Fed, great, but then wants to hand over the printing press to the US Treasury/Congress. Are you f.....g kidding me! Please don't fall for this Greenbacker nonsense.

I wouldn't worry about that

I wouldn't worry about that.

IMHO part of the point of the Federal Reserve System is to avoid legal and constitutional issues with the government running the printing presses - by handing inflation off to "private industry", i.e. the bankers. Putting it back in the Treasury should make it vulnerable to legal challenge.

Even if it doesn't, the people are waking up to the fact that inflation comes from increasing the money supply, not labor and corporate greed or other blame-deflecting spin. With money in the hands of Congress and the president's underlings in Treasury at least the electorate gets to take them out to the woodshed every few years. With it in the hands of the Fed we have essentially no leverage while they print unlimited trillions to give their cronies, all across the planet,leaving us on the hook to pump value into the paper and digital bits.

Look at inflation before and after the Fed. Before the Fed the money was in the hands of Treasury and Congress. Move it back, restore the tie to a commodity (i.e. "the gold standard"), and inflation comes to a screeching halt.

Except, of course, if Congress explicitly exercises its power to "regulate the value thereof", i.e. votes to change the amount of gold, silver, or whatever it will swap for a bill or put in a coin. At which point you have a bunch of congresscritters up for reelection with a recorded vote on the issue...

List of Advertisers on FOX broadcast last night

Can someone please post the list of advertisers on FOX Broadcast of Debate last night. I intend to mount a Twitter Campaign to let the Advertiser's and the Advertiser's customer know that Fox News in not neutral on air time. Thank you.

The media bias or ignorance of Ron Paul is incredible and disgusting. As someone who has worked in that industry, if folks really want to change that, you need to hit them in the pocket book.

US Commercial networks are driven by advertising sponsers, and PBS wants a Democrat, since the Republicans have told them they will cut their federal budget. Also news software is most likely to crawl Twitter of all social sites.

Make a list of the advertisers' on the debate broadcast...post a clean, well written Tweet each Advertiser's Twitter page, where 1000's of their customers will see it, and so will a CSR and a marketing exec. TWEEST you disappointed with the network's biased political coverage that they advertised on last night and that WILL influence you and your entire social network's decision to buy/use their products.

This will impact the network quickly. This eCommerce drives media in America.
dailypaul.com has huge traffic it ranks 2160 in the US, so I know you make a huge impact on this if you want to

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

4 1/2 minutes? Really?!

At least they gave him 7-9 minutes before. I can't believe they let Santorum speak for 9 minutes when he has like 1% in polls.

I am not suggesting that we try and divide speaking time by current polls. They should just give each candidate the same amount of time and not favour any candidate at all. This would be ideal. Debates need to be about ideas - not a popularity contest. But 4.5 minutes is so lopsided.

They also shouldn't give each

They also shouldn't give each candidate different questions, selected by the debate operators. That lets them feed softballs to their preferred candidates and hardballs to those they want to go down in flames.

I'm just beginning the Youth for Ron Paul Campaign and my first step is creating a Facebook page so Ron Paul gets the attention he deserves!!

Please please please like this page! It will bring more views and likes from others!


Thank you everyone. And Ron Paul, thank you for your persistence in this election. We will make a change. This is just the beginning. :)
