Full Length Ron Paul "What If" Speech - The 1st video my husband and I have made :)

I'm super excited to share this video - we just got finished with it. We're in the process of making a dvd with all of the best Ron Paul youtube videos (in our opinion anyways) to pass out door to door in our area. We both love this speech, and we really liked some other versions on youtube, but the husband noticed that most of them had the part about Christianity cut out, so we decided to make our own "What If" Speech video! :)

The clips and videos were borrowed from all over the web - Thankfully the internet is still free! Let us know what you think, here it is:

Ron Paul Full "What If?" Speech


If someone could tell me how to embed the video - or do it for me ;)- that would be great!

Please spread this video around!

Further query from Chattanooga

Hi, Lady Liberty,

We would very much like to use your husband's video with Friday's post about Ron Paul and noninterventionism (coinciding with the Chattanooga military parade). We would like to host the video, not use YouTube's version.

Would you contact me?

Our site is www.nooganomics.com. My email is davidtuliseditor (at) gmail.com.

My programmer says if we can have the original file, without YouTube's compression, quality will be better, and we can stay apart from Googleworld.

We would be grateful if you would get back to us.


bumping up :)

Ok, my husband finally

Ok, my husband finally perfected the video - the music was off by just a little bit in relation to the pictures/video/speech, and he couldn't rest until it was exactly how he envisioned it :)

anyways, here's the new fixed video:

Neither should we sacrifice Liberty for Safety nor Integrity for Concessions. True Liberty can not exist in the absence of integrity. Liberty gained through compromise is but a temporary illusion.

Cool, I'll let him know :)

Here is a great comment

someone left on Youtube under your video, I thought your video and the comment were awesome:

I'm RACIST for criticizing Obama.

TERRORIST because I'm not with Bush.

ANTISEMITIC for not supporting Rothechild Zionism.

TEABAGGER for supporting the Constitution.

TRUTH-ER for asking unanswered questions.

TRAITOR for whistle-blowing on my corrupt Government.

CONSPIRACY THEORIST for presenting documented facts.

TROLL for uploading news, videos, quotes and U.S.Atrocities.

ANTI-AMERICAN for supporting Constitutionalists like Dr. Ron Paul.

RON PAUL 2012!

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

I love this speech

It sums up in three minutes why Dr Paul's foreign policy is the only one that make any sense!

Chilling Truthful Video...

Everytime I see this video, I'm proud to say that I'm a Ron Paul supporter. The question of who profits from wars is quite evident - The Military Industrial Companies.

Very nice job, love the music

Very nice job, love the music it was very fitting and the music volume was perfect.

Alrighty I'm going to my

Alrighty I'm going to my legal environment of business class - I believe we're getting deep into the constitution today - and I'm pretty much positive that I will make a ron paul supporter out of the teacher, and hopefully others in my class. I got everyone talking about NDAA on the first day, and sopa on the second day - gotta figure out what to bring up today! I trust that my fellow dp'ers will attemot to front page this for me :p

Ok, well we didn't get into

Ok, well we didn't get into the constitution today (thats next week) BUT...... I did give the professor a super brochure, and then I went to the student lounge and handed out more - I'll make supporters outta all of 'em!! ;)


You have to be careful about the word "free." It isn't "free" to you if it is the property of someone else, and everything on the Internet, for the most part, is not "free" to you, but does belong to someone.

That said, most of what you have here probably falls under "fair use," in that you are using short clips to make something new, that does not resemble the original (I am assuming that you edited all the clips together, because if someone else did that, you are stealing from them).

Ron Paul's speech is public domain (at least, the delivery is as a matter of public record), I think, because he was giving it as our employee. The CSPAN audio might be a problem and the music you used would require permission from the owner (since both were used in their entirety).

You did a great job, definitely a great tool for introducing people to Ron Paul. I like to remind them that Ron Paul served in Afganistan and Pakistan in the Air Force (when Afganistan was on our side).

I'm not an attorney, but you can find out about "fair use" online, probably, and many artists and musicians will give permission for their works to be used, for "free."

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

What IF we did a fund raiser to broadcast this via

the internet to Townhall.com email subscribers? How would this play to this crowd as Ron Paul, Newt and others have paid for special advertising email broadcast.

What if this was played would it help?

What if we could do this would be able to do a chip in?

What if we could do this how could we set it up?


I am trying to find out how much it cost to buy a groupon ad for like a Denver or Minneapolis market. What we could do maybe is work with Ronpaulproducts.com to offer 1/2 T-Shirt but somehow allow the receiver of the Groupono AD to click on this What IF speech.

Public Broadcast

This is a great idea, but I am guessing that when something is submitted for air, you have to sign something guaranteeing that you have the rights, and protecting the station from any lawsuits if someone objects to their material being used (this is the problem with using music and/or audio or pictures that someone else owns).

Forewarned is forearmed. Those kind of headlines would not help us, especially if the copyright owner was an opponent.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

yep, I was thinking about

yep, I was thinking about that too - I really want to make a video for google tv ads, so we can get on tv - but I think we would have to create most of it from scratch...and so that's why I haven't made a thread about this yet, but I love the idea of using a chip-in to get an ad (that one of us has full ownership of) on the tube :)

That sounds interesting - I

That sounds interesting - I saw a video here talking about a service google offers, I think it's called google tv ads (not sure though), but anyways, regular folks can buy airtime and get ads on tv. we couldn't afford prime time, but it could still be worth it. the video showed a guy testing it out - he spent $150, had an estimated viewing of around 100,000 households I believe, and he added a link to the ad that went to a website made especially for the people that viewed the ad - over 1000 people got on the internet after watching his ad and typed in the site link - I think there is big time potential with this service, now we just need to take advantage of it :)

Thank you...

...for this great video.

Awesome Vid...

Kudos to you and your husband, wonderfully done!

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war- starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition.

Please help me get this on

Please help me get this on the front page - it would be so encouraging for my husband!

It would inspire him to do more for the cause - he's not normally very outspoken (ie: when we go door-to-door to spread the word, he's only there as my bodygaurd - not a big talker, my husband) and sometimes I feel that he's not at the level of passion/commitment that I am, but I know he can be - he just needs encouragement! He got so wrapped up in making this video, it's all he could think about for the last few weeks! I'm afraid that if he doesn't get the reaction that this video deserves, it will discourage him - and that sucks! :) I love how when he gets passionate about things, he takes it to a whole new level - even after posting the video to youtube and dp, he was still trying to perfect the video! He gets frustrated sometimes because all I can think about is liberty, the movement, ron paul - need I say more? :p

All I'm sayin', is it would be nice if he felt as inclined to embrace all of these things as I do ;)

Tell your Husband to keep

Tell your Husband to keep doing what he's doing.

Thanks and I will - we're

Thanks and I will - we're about to start working on a video that shows Dr. Paul's humanity and softer side - family photos, his plans for ss benefits, etc.. hopefully it turns out as good as - or better than - this one did :)
