When you are tired, when you think all your efforts just might

not be enough to MOVE the mountain of sluggish warmongering profligate imperialists. . .

WATCH this video. See how THIS MAN has been at it for so many years with such unabated passion!

It's our turn now to continue with this RonPaulian tradition of LOVE for LIBERTY.

Time to refresh our sight on why we are here at DP!

My all time favorite video.

Today is a great day to watch it again!

When did it originally come out? I only first saw it in this topic.

haha

good bump

POWERFUL Video

Excellent work!

Update: One small constructive criticism. I think the music choice is top notch and adds a lot of the video. I think you set the volume just right. But it seems to be a short clip, which you are looping. I don't know if I'd have even noticed this if it wasn't for the few seconds of silence that we get every once in a while when the clip is getting ready to repeat. If you edited out that silent portion I think it would make the fact that it was repeating less conspicuous. It would create a smoother transition from the end of the music clip to the beginning and would (hopefully) remove the slightly distracting awareness that the same track is being played over and over.

This should be a TV commercial!!

Brought tears to my eyes. Simply amazing, and powerful. Such honesty and care, as only a Doctor ca, for the life and dignity of people. Amazing!

The music

Great video. I also like the background music. Could someone tell me what it is?

that's what a life dedicated

that's what a life dedicated to virtue looks like... Dr. Paul hasn't just given me something to believe in... he has made me want to call on myself to be a better person.

I've watched this video like

I've watched this video like 10 times. Sending to all my friends now. Great work

"Share This Video"

As you requested, I sent out a link to the Youtube version, as well as this page, and the daily Paul home page, to a few people.

C-SPAN did a pretty good job in covering the event that the last scene in this video was taken from (no other 'MSM' were there, They were over in St. Paul, covering the wives of the candidates, because there was supposedly some 'emergency' thing, like an earthquake, that their husbands all rushed away to attend, which turned out to be a non-event).
Rally for The Republic, Campaign For Liberty, August 2008!
I was there. I am the one that started the chant you heard (incredible as it sounds). They were all chanting 'Ron Paul', and I decided to raise my voice, and say, 'PRESIDENT PAUL', in their cadence, and what you hear is the result of this, after about 25 seconds or so.

We are all in this nation together, and this is a very good video.
The usual people like Hannity and Rush now have this link. Some others, as well (including internationally) are getting it too.
Whether or not they read it is another matter...sometimes they read, and sometimes they don't.

Nice!

I think I will put the clip from 3:59-4:06 as a greeting on my answering machine

"It Is Our Job...

...to check up and find what the 'Federal Reserve' HAS done, audit them, and find out who their BUDDIES are that they're taking care of!"

WE, The PEOPLE of the United States, in order to...

If you could block out the music, and just have the speech posted, it would work better than a raw cut.
That being said, this is a MOST EXCELLENT QUOTE!

Ron Paul 2012: We Won't Get Fooled Again

Powerful, captivating compilation of speeches,

This is very powerful. I am in awe of the video talent this group possesses, and grateful to all those who so skillfully put these together to further the cause. So I hate to nit-pick, but I wish the music was not so loud from about the 1:28 through 2:00 minute mark - I had to strain at times to hear the speeches over the music.

wow!

What he says at 2:30 is absolutely powerful!

This video is awesome!

Bumping so NONE of the "after

Bumping so NONE of the "after 5pm crowd" misses it. It is THAT good. Someone send it to Hannity and Beck, please..

I'm glad you bumped it,

I am going to show this video to everyone I know.

Thanks!

I am too!

It is powerful and shows how hard he has been fighting for our civil liberties and sound money. What a man! Fighting for same cause for over 30 years. Dealing with ridicule and laughter for so long. Someone that can do that for so long, deserves to be our president. I am proud to be a Ron Paul supporter.

I saw this comment......

on cbs . com under the article about gnewt and mittens being the only to real choices. Then I saw this video. From that point forward all I pictured was a person going for the foot in mouth move. But alas even with facts people don't want to hear, believe, or attempt to understand facts.

Any sources for Paul criticizing the anti American GOP economic terror 2000-2008 while he was in Congress???????
We'll wait.

Indeed, now THIS...........is..........CONSISTENCY!

I sure wish we could do this in a TV AD in Iowa during the Trump debate. Wouldn't that be a miracle, if we could pull that one off?

Acceptance of RP foreign policy

Perhaps the #1 reason why many Republicans will not vote for RP is their failure to accept the realities of blowback. That's why you might want to consider posting comments related to this, especially below news stories on Newt Gingrich and the other clowns. I am spreading the below around:

APPEAL TO ALL AMERICANS FOR ACCEPTANCE OF RON PAUL’S FOREIGN POLICY

If you don’t support Ron Paul because of his foreign policy I can understand because I was a traditional neoconservative type for much of my life. Upon digging into the facts, however, I now recognize that Ron Paul is on the right side of this issue.

The history of the Middle East and world in general, virtually all major surveys taken in Muslim streets, speeches delivered by Muslim leaders, and human nature confirm that meddling in the affairs of other countries and regions is the root cause of resistance, hatred, revenge, and terrorism.

Our meddling in the Middle East for more than 60 years by overthrowing governments (including democratic ones), invasions, occupations, setting up puppet governments and military bases came long before terrorism emerged as a reaction. There is no supporting evidence that organized radical Muslim terrorism results from hating us by nature, because of our religion, or lifestyle.

A universal characteristic of human nature is to be focused on creating a better life for ourselves and our children. Hatred, terrorism, and focus on what goes on in other countries come into play when our own way of life is violated or threatened by them. Until our heavy handed meddling in the Middle East we were rather liked and very much respected in the Middle East.

If a Muslim superpower meddled in our region for 60 years, invaded and occupied countries in North America, set up pro-Muslim puppet governments and military bases there would also be resistance, hatred, and no doubt some of us would also consider it justified to respond with the use of terrorism (even though terrorism should never be justified). Why, therefore, are we surprised that blowback emerges in reaction to our constant and consistent meddling in the Middle East during the course of 60 years?

We kept escalating the war in Vietnam to no avail but since leaving that country we now get along well. When under Soviet occupation the people of Eastern Europe despised and resisted the Russians on a daily basis. Now that the Soviets are out they are hardly given a 2nd thought in the people’s daily lives. Afghanistan practiced resistance and terrorism during the Soviet occupation of that country. Since Soviet departure and American entrance in that arena the hatred and terrorism has shifted to us. There is terrorism being committed by Muslims of Chechnya in an effort to free that country of Russian occupation.

Why then do we violate our Christian, national, and individual values to aggressively meddle in the affairs of others only to create more hatred and terrorism directed against us, while the vast majority of people around the world, and friendly leaders of other countries, warn against this course of action? Do not two of the most important commandments left by Jesus Christ not state “Love thy brother as you love yourself” and “Thou shell not kill?” Does not our Constitution, and did not our forefathers, warn against foreign entanglements and to respect the self-determination of all people whether we agree with them or not? Have we not been taught from early childhood to treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves?

History has proven over and over again that empires usually fall not from the strength of enemies but from their own over expansion. Many empires have tried to create a world in their own image by force and to date have all ultimately failed on each occasion.

If you can’t accept supporting Ron Paul’s foreign policy based on true Christian, national, and individual values that maintained the world’s respect for so many decades, then consider the fact that we simply cannot afford our current self-defeating warfare policy. Even if our meddling in the Middle East could create utopia for 30 million people in Afghanistan and 30 million people in Iraq, is it worth leading 312 million Americans into bankruptcy and full scale Depression during this process?

All evidence available thus far shows that our claims against Iran are basically as bogus as those used to justify the war in Iraq, except that the bombing of Iran would have far more serious negative consequences. Iran poses absolutely no threat to the United States. Even if Iran developed nuclear weapons it is unreasonable to believe that they would initiate a nuclear war against Israel as Iran would be toast within 24 hours. Contrary to the claims of so many Ahmadinejad never threatened to nuke Israel. And Iran has not started a war of aggression during its entire modern history, while we have started several, which included 3 acts of war committed against Iran alone.

This is not to say that Ahmadinejad does not represent a despicable dictatorship but we must consider how to deal with the situation with our own best interests and those of our children first. This also does not mean that Ron Paul does not believe in maintaining very strong defense. He absolutely does but that has little to do with constantly, and aggressively, meddling in the affairs of other nations.

Even after reading hundreds of documents that are readily available on the Internet, including those of our own government, which confirm all of the above, it took me a few years to accept the truth. Unfortunately, we don’t have a few more years to resolve these issues any longer thus I hope and pray that all Americans will take the time to examine the facts and accept the truth much more quickly than I did. This election will determine if we continue on the path to endless wars of self-destruction, bankruptcy, and full scale Depression within the next few years, or if we start the process of recovery under President Ron Paul.

Please feel free to pass on this appeal anywhere and everywhere possible in the interest of America’s future during this critical time in our history.

Hearing people say "President Paul" gets me emotional

Can it be done?

Somebody asked me today why I support RP and I said it's because he has consistently held the same philosophy and said the same things year after year after year and the proof is on video. This gets people's attention. Nobody argues that politicians are honest. The mere fact of an honest option gets people's attention and the seed of liberty is planted (actually more like a root-cutting. Liberty is not easily spread like a dandelion, it takes a little work.)

There needs to be a video like this of the other candidates, including obama, that shows what they say and what they do changes all the time.

I also agree with the other commenters that this should air on television, maybe with a little tweaking. Would it be possible to have a moneybomb and simultaneously vote on what video the money will be used to put on tv? Somebody more internet savvy than me needs to put this together. I've done my part by coming up with the idea!

Also want to give a shout out to the Oklahoma Republicans out there who gave money to crooks just to get RP the win.

'Yes, He Can!'

When I stood in line at the Border's Books in Minneapolis, waiting for over an hour, back in August 2008 (during CFL), to get my books signed by President Paul, I was wondering what i should say to him (over 3,000 people, and he has very little time...)
I simply said this: "It is an honor to meet you, President Paul.".
He stood up, and shook my hand.
I shall never forget this moment, and there is no other man worthy of this office, at THIS TIME in history.

How much would it cost to run this ad during, say, the Superbowl?
This is quite good, but it should be fleshed out and edited for mainstream quality, should such a decision be made to expend the million or so involved.

It seems that every video I watch with this man that tears fall from my eyes. We need this man, We need help

The Best Video of them ALL

Fan-F#$@ing-tastic

The Insightful, Honest Ron Paul

Wisdom and authenticity at work in this video.

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

I could not stop staring at his hair

I have no idea what he was saying because his hair-dos were making me laugh.

That's sad for you then.

That's sad for you then.

I've teared up a few times

I've teared up a few times watching Ron Paul videos, maybe it's the music, maybe it's something else but I couldn't help completely crying watching this.

PRESIDENT PAUL for LIBERTY !

"Give me Liberty or give me death." Patrick Henry

I like

I like this much better than the dog ad. This is a side of RP and over time that many have not seen.

This gets my plus 10 for why I support RP.
