Aliens?? People.. keep that

Aliens??

People.. keep that stuff between you and your psychiatrist and not on CSPAN when talking about Paul.

Anyone know how to download CSPAN videos?

I use the DownloadHelper plugin for Firefox for YouTube and stuff, but does anyone know a good free plugin or other method of downloading videos from CSPAN? (and/or CNN, etc?)

Thanks a lot

I'll give that shot

Awesome.

Thanks!

Here's to a great day for liberty!

Youtube?

Can't seem to find this on C-span...

NVM

Think I found it.

Saw this live

With the possible exception to the last caller (the lady who had a hard time understanding liberty), Jesse slayed it - even the dude who talked about aliens. Many callers were knowledgeable and a great credit to the revolution.

Blessed are the peacemakers, but elected are the war hawks.

You can't expect everyone to read books

We all need to get better at articulating what our founders, libertarians, and Ron Paul mean by "liberty" so that it's generally understood. Currently, it's not. Far from.

You don't need to read a book to get this.

Liberty means not being prevented by others from doing anything you want and are able to do that does not violate the rights of others.

That said, it might take a book to understand all the implications of actually carrying this out.

You know what?

I don't understand the aggression people have to Jesse. I haven't seen it as much recently. But in the past he would get really bashed for not saying the exact correct thing as deemed by "us"...

Listening to him for the past hour, I thought he was a fantastic mouth piece for Ron Paul. He explained the issues in a very clear and concise manner. And I thought was extremely effective at getting the message across.

At the end there - "Can't define liberty"

Well lady, it requires a book to define it and is not just a sound bite answer for your consumption.

The Good Doctor has a pretty neat book on this very subject.

"It does not take a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

--Samuel Adams

That was fantastic!

It blows my mind how the last caller said Ron Paul can't articulate liberty.

OMG, the man lives, eats and breathe's liberty with every ounce of his body! She must have been sleeping under a rock for the last 35 years!

repeat from this morning

he did well. repeat from this morning though

Good Job Jesse

Once again Jesse does a very nice job of answering questions and explaining Dr. Paul's positions. I've really enjoyed having a chance to listen to him speak more the past couple of days.

ahaha that last call. Talk

ahaha that last call. Talk about main stream media brain washing. This is the exact crap the media is trying to insinuate as of like yesterday and now this one lady buys it. How funny

She was a retard

Oh, the country is going to hell and we are controlled by Nazis and our money is worthless but "oh, I am not going to vote for Ron Paul because he did not do a good job defining liberty." WHAT????? That is what matters? God help us. Jesse did a great job on his response. Somebody needs to send the stupid woman Liberty Defined. If anyone can define liberty, RP can.

A better way to answer the "liberty articulation" comment

Jesse could have said that Dr. Paul wrote a book called "liberty defined", and she wants to know how he articulates liberty, she ought to pick it up.

I would have thought that was a gimmee....

Assuming she can read...

Based on the question I highly doubt you're ever going to get someone such as her to actually read, digest, and contemplate the teachings included in one of Dr. Paul's books. I agree however that it was a nice opportunity for a free book plug that Jesse could have taken advantage of.

Yep

we need youtube of this - many need to see and hear this

intelligent and articulate presentation

he's doing a great job.

a credit to our campaign.

Kudos to Jesse Benton

he has been doing a fantastic job of representing Dr. Paul, he has been such an asset. Love his explanations concerning the media's bias and he also comes across as very pleasant.

Agree!

Jesse is doing great! I am really appreciating listening to this and his great responses to the questions.

A lot of good calls

...except for the guy who called in about the governments involvement with aliens from outer space...

Yeh that was sad

This has nothing to do with what they were talking about. It made him look crazy. please everyone do not bring this stuff up stay on message.
