I agree with most other writers that diversity should not always be an issue, particularly when aimed at the Iowa audience. My wife, who is a proud citizen of the United States originally from Costa Rica, has been an absolutely unwavering Ron Paul supporter like me since 2007. She shares Ron Paul's positions opposing minority preference and amnesty for illegal immigrants. We didn't even notice, or care about, the lack of diversity in the excellent ad. I do believe that a rather inexpensive means to support the exciting Ron Paul camapaign is through the purchase of bumper stickers. One can buy 20 for $5 (free shipping) at www.Stickers2012.com. Go Ron Paul!!!
As a minority, I did notice it. However it did not bother me personally based on the fact that it was targeting Iowans which is a state that is 91% white. In the face of recent allegations of racism, however, it might have been prudent to be more diverse in the ad.

ACLU Report Card Puts Ron Paul Above President Obama!
Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions
Romney is Obama - DONT vote for more of the same!!
Will send it out to others...
fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate
FOX NEWS HEADLINES - Shows Gingrich, Santorum, Perry & Romney - BUT NO RON PAUL, THESE PEOPLE SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have look all over the MSM today & I can NOT find any coverage on the 5.5 MILLION Raised, has the Campaign not released this info & if so, WHY??? SANTORUM HAS NO MONEY, BUT SURGING, YEA RIGHT! RON RAISES 5.5 MILLION & NO COVERAGE! Can anyone update me on this! Thanks-GO RON PAUL IN IOWA!!!!!!!!
Do I have ta show these people how to make a commercial?
Does my burka make my butt look fatwa?
Stop putting up the same adds over and over. People now know what Ron Paul wants to do but they don't know WHY!
We need to answer the questions:
WHY Ron Paul wan't to eliminate 5 departments.
WHY he want's to Audit the Fed
WHY we need competition in currency!
WHY he wan't to bring ALL the troops home and explain the history of US interventionism and blow back!
WHY he believes in a free market society
WHY he wants to take away medicaid/Social Security AND STRESS THE POINT THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT NOW WILL BE GRANDFATHERED INTO IT.
WHY he thinks that charity should come from a local level
And so on...
I think grassroots efforts can make a better commercial with less money! If anyone knows anyone who can make an upbeat informational video please let them know it's much needed!
My husband just got back from Iraq and he can talk about military interventionism in the video as an idea.
We need to get the REAL message out there!
Sixty-five seconds or less, ideally.
You go, G!

Best ad yet. Awesome. So concise. It attacks the others but gets his best point across: Consistency and trust.
Your efforts are wasted unless you do something to ensure those votes are counted before the night is over. Did you hear me? WASTED! USELESS!
This goes for every state.
Do what you have to do.

While listening to the mainstream media put down Ron Paul's policies today, showing their ignorance of history, I couldn't find enough slippers to throw at the TV.
Wonderful ad by the way!
Get the word out on the outright lies told by MSNBC!
That's interesting considering the level of malice that these misrepresentations of RP present.
Disagree with people concerned about the lack of "diversity" in this ad - 1) IA and NH are mostly white, 2) the GOP electorate is mostly white everywhere, 3) do we really need to pander? (the pragmatist says yes, but still, it's lowly and by and large unnecessary IMO).
Either way, home run!
He's catchin' on, I'm tellin' ya!
I didnt know that a lot of the people in the ad were State Representatives in New hampshire.. can anyone identify them?
If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...
Fox's The Five just don't get it. They show only a portion of the ad and then ask "what is he doing?" Didn't think that it would impress conservatives because a few "liberal" commentators were shown in the ad.
How do these people sleep at night?
I saw that too....they are a bunch of morons....I can't wait to send my email to them when the good doctor wins....they have smeared him long enough...they are just a bunch of NEO CON fools!
Awesome job of putting alot into a minute, yet conveying one consistent memorable message of trust. What a positive image of our hero!

As we pass through Iowa and enter into these more conservative states, we will need some good dose of common sense in responding to common arguments. Here is my attempt in responding a very influential thinker in West Florida: http://wp.me/p1xkKA-bT
By far the best ad yet
Its great..going to post it to a few media pages on FB.
But..I just got really excited..Saw the first Ron Paul ad on tv Ive ever seen..(the one where he got the medals for the Vets) it just aired on WSPA upstate SC, western NC station..Hope people was paying attention.
The funny ad thats on now..Romney..against big government and ObamaCare...now thats an oxymoron..
I believe in Hope & Change..I Hope the government will Change

So great! Was this put together by Jon Downs?
If it only had a hint of Santorum, but hey. This is an ad that makes me want to go put another $50 in the Paul campaign. (Too bad I have to wait a couple of weeks to get more money!)
I composed our first letter of suggestions to Dr. Paul, one of the members here (sorry I forget who) made the profound point that "TRUST=POWER" in this race.
I not only included that in the letter, but reaffirmed it when I got to visit with Dr. Paul and staff in New Orleans.
I think you'd surprised at how we've impacted the race, and helped craft the message over the last several months.
They have done a stellar job for the most part.
This is basically what it comes down to is "trust."
You want REAL change, or do you want more of the same?
Selling/communicating the message of liberty and limited Govt. in a society that has strayed SO far off of the beaten path, is a challenge for ALL of us.
Competing with a corrupt hostile media empire is even MORE challenging.
We will continue to refine and sharpen the message in a way that hopefully most can understand. There is still much work to do.
Per this YouTube channel, it's believe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr2KV50BKQQ&feature=channel_v...
But TRUST would been fantastic?
Can we request the campaign to rename it to TRUST?
Obama sold and cheapend value of so many good words like: Hope and Change, along with Believe (Change we can believe in >> change we can NOT believe! lol)
Trust is one of the very few remaining words, which still is valuable,
and Dr Ron Paul is TRUST PERSONIFIED.

This is a great ad! Trying to explain to people not very involved in politics that Ron Paul is different is one of the most difficult things. This does a good job.
