Damned good interview on both

Damned good interview on both people's parts! Jesse did an outstanding job, never caught off guard, and Piers was respectful and asked legitimate questions!

A joy to watch!

DON'T FORGET..........



I'm impressed by the campaign. The improvement between now and 2008 is like a chasm.

Good Job Jesse!

I know he has a lot on his shoulders, God Bless him!

Jesse made points with me with this video.

We shall overcome.

Yep. He needs to keep saying

Yep. He needs to keep saying this..he did fantastic in that interview. Really well!

Finally! I'm so glad he said: "We are trying to have an adult

conversation here." Finally. Keep that one up, Jesse. Great job.

Heartfelt thanks to Jesse Benton for being SUPERLATIVE

in every single way.


I'm dangerous and PROUD of it. "Look Mom...I'm dangerous!!!

nomad, can you provide more info on the party change in Mass. I've been looking everywhere but can't find the specifics. Anyone else in Mass. know the party change rules and deadline. Please hurry, thank you.


Isn't it ironic that the GOP establishment provided the best line to use against them?

Great, Great interview, Benton a real pro

really good questions and fluid responses that made a great case for Paul as the only non-Romney option going forward.

Nailed It!

Piers Got Nailed! Great interview, interesting how they like to inject Mitt on every interview. ChickenHawk Gingrich Down, Santorum Down, Perry Down, Bachman Down. All eyes is on Mitt now. Paulites unite and get ready! Ron Paul 2012!

The Laughing

Interesting tactic with the laughing during the interviews. I thought it was only Doug Wead but now I see it's more of a tactic, even though a lot of the questions really are laughable. I don't necessarily mind it, just an interesting observation.

Great job on Jesse's part though!


I liked it too, it makes the whole interview a friendly and intelligent discussion. Jesse has done an excellent job answering all questions!

great interview

but they could have waited 5 damn minutes to take down the set...that was distracting in the background...


About the youth vote, older people don't understand that

The young people of America suffer from:

  • Debt slavery because of crushing Student loans
  • Debt slavery because of 15 Trillion in national debt that the old folks created and lived on
  • Non stop wars that the young must fight
  • Reduction in purchasing power of the dollar
  • The housing bust that is killing young people financially
  • High unemployment
  • Loss of liberty and erosion of rights
  • Social security program that will go bankrupt

The young people are getting screwed while the older people enjoy life like no other!

~~~Sean W.

You for real?

Seriously "worthingtons" I question your reasons for particpating in Dr.Paul's campaign? You don't think older folks are affected by the issues in your comment? No I don't have a student loan, do you? Why would you take out a student loan? Did someone put a gun to your head? Dr.Paul promotes self resposibility, prudence,indepedence. 15 trillion in debt doesn't effect the older generation? We all use the FRN as the medium of exchange, devaluation & inflation decreases purchasing power and ends up being a backdoor tax!With regards to war, why are these young folks signing up? These people need an education not an M-16 -a majority come from the middle to lower class. Housing bust killing young people? I'm 52 years of age and I'm BARELY holding on to my home. High unemployment? I'm one of them. Loss of liberty effects ALL regardless of age! Social security sucks, it's a gamble. Hopefully your generation can opt out. Wow, "the older people enjoy life like no other" you're so out of touch with that statement! "Worthingtons" you are divisive and are alienating other Dr.Paul supporters! I think you're missing the message of the campaign. ALL Dr.Paul supporters must come together regardless of race, ethnicity, relegion, sexual preference etc. We must lock arms and block the status quo. You may want to consider another candidate.

nomad, can you provide more info on the party change in Mass. I've been looking everywhere but can't find the specifics. Anyone else in Mass. know the party change rules and deadline. Please hurry, thank you.

We ALL are getting screwed.

All of our FRN's are losing value. The older people are getting screwed if they are on fixed incomes.

The main diff you are alluding to is that the older folks who don't use the Internet are more brainwashed by the MSM.

We need to, as a society, turn off the MSM and get our news from the Alex Jones' of the world. To the degree we do this, we shall be a freer nation.

To the degree we don't do this, we will feel the chains of federal usurpers get tighter and tighter.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford


Please don't group all older voters together!
You should say some older people don't understand!
"Some" older voters have fought this adgenda for years.
Please consider our cause together, Dr. Paul, peace!

The "Older"

republican voters (in general - there are always exceptions) are what stand between a Ron Paul presidency and (whatever) the alternative is. Period. I think the way to win over this group is by promoting Veterans for Ron Paul - and Paul's military service.

Needs to be in the post title:

Dangerous to the establishment, but a safe choice for the American people. What a great fucking line!

Thank God for Jesse!

He's tha man!

In Liberty


I think that Jesse always does a great job in interviews. Obviously I'm not saying that he is a substitute for Ron but when the media asks simpleton questions he knocks them out of the park with a lot more conviction / less stuttering than RP and that really drives the message home. Same goes for Doug Wead, we really do have a first class campaign team.

Don't Exclude Our Man for 2016....

Rand does a hell'va job of knocking it out of the park too!!!

"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree"...as the saying goes!

Panama expats support Ron Paul

This is why we should thank Piers Morgan

A few days ago when Ron Paul was on with Piers Morgan, the good Doctor made a specific comment to Piers indicating his supporters not only defend him when he is wronged, but that they respond to good attention too, mentioning Kelly Clarkson.

Ron Paul's exact words:
"If you say something nice about me tonight, I'll bet you'll get a lot of good emails".
This is the interview, about the 3 min mark:

I don't know if many people contacted Piers after that pretty fair interview...

But either way, let's do it this time: back up Ron Paul and do what he said we would do, thank him for positive (or at least fair) interview.
