Examiner: Grassroots Video on Ron Paul's Foreign Policy Converts Many

From the Examiner:

Ron Paul's stance on foreign policy, in 2007 and now again in 2011, has been called "dangerous," "naive," and Bill O'Reilly on the 'Today' show on Monday even said it disqualifies Paul not only as a candidate, but "as an American."

Sean Wheeler, a clinical hypnotherapist in Atlanta, could not disagree more. A Ron Paul supporter since 2007, Wheeler decided to spend his nights and weekends over the last three months creating a video he half-jokingly hoped would "change the world," or at the least change some minds about Ron Paul's foreign policy. He kept hearing people say that they liked everything about Ron Paul, except his foreign policy. He said, "It occurred to me that if voters understood and supported his foreign policy, he would win the Republican nomination in a landslide."

Wow Wow Wow!

After 4 long years of trying to convert a Neo-Con here at work ... 4 long years of making painstakingly slow marginal progress ... 4 long years of being called a kook and a nutjob ... 4 long years of banging my head against the wall - this video finally sealed it!!! He got done with it and asked me immediately for two bumper stickers. This vid is definitely a game changer! Thank you so much Sean. We are winning!

I take my marching orders from the Constitution!

This video is great!

I just wanted to post a link to a blog I created that explains my personal story of going from a neocon without knowing it to the current day Ron Paul supporter that I am. I hope it will help people share why they've developed their beliefs because people have to get talking and stop just reacting to what we are being fed. I'd like t post other people's stories as future entries for those that don't want to operate their own blog. Could be powerful.

Great Video

Thanks for sharing. I've posted it on my website, with commentary, in order to spread the truth.

Please sir, may I have another?

A Huge Thank you for making this. I also LOVE the music that plays in it. What a moving and engaging video.

Someone should make a video for the people on the opposite end of the spectrum- those who say "I like Ron Paul's foreign policy but his domestic policies are crazy." Just like minding our own business internationally can bring greater peace, government getting out of the way at home can bring greater prosperity. But this makes no sense to people missing important pieces of the puzzle. We need as many Americans voting in the primaries as possible in order for Ron Paul to get the nomination. We need to answer questions like: How will we survive without income tax and gov departments like dept. of education and energy; Won't our country fill up with pollution without the EPA?; and shouldn't gov. provide health care like other countries do?

We need everyone on board, neocons and progressives alike.
Anyone care to tackle that one?

Just wrote down the title for

Just wrote down the title for my A/C Tech.

Our A/C guy had to check our unit today and he saw my Ron Paul sign and couldn't miss my beautiful "the one that Josh Rogan wore" t-shirt. An eager discussion followed with this fellow Republican. He does like a lot of Ron's ideas but has some reservations.

He is concerned about the foreign policy too, feeling that the "big war" is inevitable. I let him talk and shared his concerns for our world rather than argue. As he prepared our bill, I wrote down the title of this piece and directed him to YouTube when he got home later today to consider our views. I'm sure he'll do it.

He also feels that in the '08 debates, that Ron's answers weren't relevant to the questions asked--that he just wanted to get his point of view out there while he had the stage. I wasn't watching in '08 so I couldn't say. Still he spoke w/respect for the doc nevertheless. I hope he comes around.

Ron Paul

should upload this to his youtube channel immediately! like if you agree

It made me emote...

But I especially liked that snippet toward the end where the little girl looks up with "shock" and "awe" that Daddy's home safe.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

This should be on the front

This should be on the front page of the super brochures from now on. Or under the foreign policy section

My favorite part

is 8:35 to about 8:50 when Ron Paul says "once you you become knowledgeable you have an obligation to do something about it"

Apathy, learned helplessness, mixed with fear of the unknown

The educational and media manipulation of generations is being tested right now. All efforts to break down any sense of moral duty or conscience toward our own self-worth before God, our spouses, family, neighbors, community, township, county, parish, state, and/or country, have been weakened by our irresolution to right what we know to be so very wrong, starting humbly before Him who sent His Son to be our Prince of Peace.

Here are some neighbors singing about what I believe to be, "The Problem". See if you don't agree, it's "me".

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

So true. When he said that...

...it caused me to introspect as to what inspired my activism for Ron Paul.

His statement sums it up nicely. I like when I actually understand why I am doing something.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

Same tactic Glen Beck used

Its the typical media hit piece. A few years back Faux and one of the many sold out propagandist talking heads, Glen Beck did this type of hit upon Debra Medina for gov Tx so Rick BILDERBERG Perry stayed texas puppet gov. THey are strange creatures they strike you and as you recieve their blow they cry out in pain and anger acusing you of agression, racism and injustice. This tactic is so effective it causes confusion to the victim as well as any bystanders. Its Lies and evil. Enlightened Disengagement makes us see why we avoid any viewing of these immoral evil creatures. God Bless. Stay the course, its about getting the information out there at this point and we are winning a critical mass in the information war.

It'll Choke You Up!

Powerful video, If Americans only knew history Ron would be the undeniable front runner.

Didn't

choke me up, but it is effective.

This video is fantastic, but....

... its so long. Is there anyway to cut it down to 5-6 minutes? For example, the beginning segment with the world trade center is not absolutely necessary. I would love to show this to some neocons who aren't convinced neocons, but who just dont know better, but who want to do the right thing. However, there is zero chance they will watch a 13 minute-plus video. Would love to see it get to the point faster.

Anyway, thank you for doing this. I certainly couldn't. This is just some feedback from the field.

good idea

Nice work.

When I saw the plane hitting the WTC, I thought this could keep the attention of the neo-cons. The I saw Santorum and thought this might be the video.

The hook is not set deep enough for the neo-cons before RP is in the video. Set the hook deeper and let others, such as the CIA, do the counter-point talking. At the end, bring in the solution of the rule of law, the Constitution, 10th amendment limiting federal government, and Ron Paul.

I think that part is needed

The anti-Ron Paul crowd is trying to paint Ron Paul as a nutter 911 Truther. There is no way they can do that if there is this type of video tying those attacks to terrorists and not an inside job. I am just shocked at how responsive some people are to those saying Ron Paul is a truther. Scary at who votes.

Super Bowl Ad Money Bomb?

I'm not sure how many millions it would cost for a 30 second Super Bowl ad, but a really good RP video could show the entire nation who he is and his message. Anyways, just a thought.

ok

Fantastic. The info is all right there...

The following could have been written by Ron Pau - he is not alone and the historical facts don't lie:

Blowback: The Cost and Consequences of American Foreign Policy

Introduction

"Blowback" is a term used by scholars of international relations. It refers to an unpredicted, negative response against a nation in regards to a diplomatic action previously undertaken by that nation. What the daily press reports as the malign acts of "terrorists" or "drug lords" or "rogue states" or "illegal arms merchants" often turn out to be blowback from earlier foreign policy operations. The terrible, momentous events of September 11, 2001 were, in fact, the most stunning example of blowback in world history. Therefore, "blowback" can be simplified into the proverb "you reap what you sow," hence, as Jesus warned in the Bible, "all they that take the sword shall perish by the sword."

In this paper, it will be conclusively demonstrated that the United States actually brought the events of 9-ll and other related terrorist attacks upon itself by means of its foreign policy, and that any failure on the part of the U.S. to amend these policies will only encourage more attacks in the future.

Most Americans do not seem to realize that it is not America the terrorists hate, but rather it is America's foreign policy.

I could watch this video all day.

It inspires me.

Here's what I want you to do...

At Christmas, pull out your iPad, or get your family around the computer and say..

I want to show you guys something powerful and force them to watch this video!!!!!!!

I had to do it at Thanksgiving for my Mom.
She now understands what I have been talking about this guy since 07 and no longer tries to change the subject when I bring Paul up in the conversation.

Seriously, just sit them down and say it will only take 15 minuntes and you'll never be the same.

This video is powerful.

I have been following DailyPaul for a while now. This video is great, and it touches a lot of people. I post videos every once in a while on my Facebook account. This one has gone viral with my family and friends. Most of them do not support Ron Paul, but are now considering him based on this video. Let us, let this community spread this video around a bit. We have only a small amount of time left, and spreading this information is very important and very powerful.

Edit: I love the 1337 video. Haha!
