'Endorse Liberty' Super PAC to Broadcast 30 Minute Ron Paul TV Special in Florida

Here is what the people in Florida will see:

MIAMI, Jan 27, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Endorse Liberty, a political action committee supporting Ron Paul for President, announced today that it has purchased multiple 30 minute prime time slots on Florida's WHDT TV, the largest independent broadcaster in Florida and America's first HD network, to air a special program in advance of the Florida Republican primary. The special features short films about the candidate, including "Blowback," which outlines Ron Paul's foreign and military policy for America.

"Blowback" sheds new light on the last 50 years of U.S. policy and explains why U.S. troops overwhelmingly support Paul's campaign. For Endorse Liberty, known for its humorous depictions of Presidential candidates on YouTube, this television special marks an unprecedented TV buy as well as a stark departure from its comedic roots.

"The other candidates prefer to talk down to Americans in 15- and 30-second sound bites. Ron Paul's message is too important to get lost in that kind of ridiculous shouting. 'Blowback' takes the time to carefully detail the truth of what Americans need to know about our country's foreign policy," said Stephen Oskoui of Endorse Liberty. "We like to have fun on our YouTube 'Fake Politicians' Channel', but when American lives are at stake, we -- like Ron Paul -- are critically serious. After watching 'Blowback' viewers will be better informed, and personally moved to help strengthen America at the ballot box."

For a TV audience tired of tuning in to the History Channel only to be confronted by shows about pawn shops and Big Foot, Endorse Liberty's Ron Paul special explains clearly and concisely how U.S. policy since the 1950s has led to the current war on terror and how our current foreign policy makes Americans less safe.

Excellent video! Brought on many tears...

I remember 9/11 very well. I was in Tower One when it was hit. There has never been any doubt in my mind - not then or now - that this was blowback. That Ron Paul is right.

For 3,000 of my fellow citizens who needlessly died on 9/11, and for all the living survivors like myself, I support Ron Paul with all my heart and soul.

Incredible!

These type of videos protraying the Truth Ron Paul and others bring to light, bring tears to my eyes.

Anyone with common sense and decency, who takes a few minutes of their time to view this, cannot deny the truth of Ron Paul and history.

Thank you for what you do to save our kids and our country...

We sent this video http://www.youtube.com/EndorseLiberty
to many on our email list and asked them to help make it go viral. It is a great job of production, etc.
God bless Ron Paul and all that he holds dear.

fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

They're running two videos

Hey everyone... I'm a co-creator of the two videos being run in this 30-minute spot. The first is a version of "The Only One We Can Trust," and the other is a version of "You Like Ron Paul, Except on Foreign Policy."

Both have been changed slightly to avoid copyright infringements and to maximize impact.

Endorse Liberty is partially run by an internet marketing guru who has tested every single Ron Paul ad (official or not). Their testing has shown that these two videos convert people to supporting Ron Paul at a higher rate than all the others.

Statistics show that this 15-minute video is doing very well in holding the attention of viewers to the very end.

Rest assured that these videos, while not perfect, are the best available to spread Dr. Paul's message to voters. The people running Endorse Liberty know what they're doing, and in many ways they are far ahead of their time in marketing strategies for a political campaign.

Share these videos with people. They're effective.

Thanks.

PS. I'm going to make a donation to you now. How do I do that?

I know you covered it at the end of the video. I'd prefer to not do it over the internet, though.

Thank you for your work and your followup here!

It means a lot to me to hear that these videos have been tested to the best of your ability by folks who know a lot more than I about what actually sells!

The reframing of Ron Paul's foreign policy to one of strong self defense and maximum wealth preserved for our own economy was particularly well done. It is a very difficult thicket to traverse for most people and your video is pretty effective in that regard!

One thing I have really come to believe recently is that we will win. Ron Paul WON in 2008. At the time I was pretty discouraged and thought that his message just couldn't gain enough mass support to turn the tide. But here we are and the pro-liberty movement is, at least, an order of magnitude (10X) larger and more powerful than before. We really DID win in 2008. We HAVE changed the dialogue we ARE on the verge of utterly turning the table.

If we don't stop we cannot be stopped. That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger! Believe it!

I agree we need more coverage

I watch a lot of youtube videos and the music is always a distraction to me, I can barely hear whats being said through the music. Is there any way to tone it down a bit. The messege is great as always.

Tuesday's vote

Thank you for having forced me to articulate what the range of motion is for all of these foreign wars. Having done that, I can now say to you without hesitation. If you will incorporate the simple message of:

The military operates by chain of command.
Presidents who go to war without congressional authority are bypassing their own chain of command.
The World Trade Center was the target of terrorist attacks because American armed forces were being used by World Trade Organizations to occupy and steal oil resources from the occupied countries.
Presidents were being used by World Trade Organizations to spend American lives and American wealth to enrich the leaders of the World Trade Organizations.
The terrorists targeted the World Trade Center because they consider the World Trade Center the center of our government.
What do the terrorist know that we don't know?

THAT IS THE MESSAGE THAT YOU CAN PUT BEHIND YOUR PICTURES AND YOU WILL WIN YOUR AUDIENCE. GET IT OUT TODAY, TOMORROW AND MONDAY AND YOU MAY WIN TUESDAY'S ELECTION.

VERY good point! Bush/Obama violated Chain of Command!!

I never thought of it in quite that way before! For some reason, merely "not following the Constitution" doesn't register with people. Probably because we are so inured to the way things have been for 50 - 100 years and, in our own way, have become reconciled to the Constitution really being , as Bush purportedly said, just "a goddamned piece of paper"

But...Obama violated the chain of command! Whoa!!! Whole new frame!

Can't a person be prosecuted for that under military tribunal???

A kid becoming a teenager now...

...has never known America to not be in a U.N. or NATO Operation, labeled as "War".

Is this going to be run on the History Channel?

If this is run on the history channel, it will appeal to those 20 or 30 neo-cons who are history buffs. But, for the gazillion who don't know where their history channel is located, they will safely never see it.

If veterans want to reach neo-cons in a way that they will vote for Ron Paul, they have a better chance of coming from the angle of line of command. Going to war without congressional approval is a failure of the Commander in Chief to follow his own line of command.

Having said that, then you can say congress needed to hear the history of foreign policy mistakes that motivated the hatred that drove desperate people fighting for their own survival to take desperate actions against the World Trade Buildings. World Trade was the target of the 911 attacks because World Trade was the reason America was in their country dictating what they could do with their own resources. NATO driven World Trade is the enemy that produces World Terrorists. The true enemy is World Trade Organizations.

Identify the enemy as World Trade Organizations and you will win the neo-con vote. BE VERY SPECIFIC - THE ENEMY IS THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATIONS THAT PURCHASE WORLD TRADE OCCUPYING FORCES THAT PRODUCE TERRORISTS.

Please!!!!

Please don’t criticize an attempt to educate the masses on the truth.
The “Big Picture” is clear!
I wish this could be played on every channel nation wide during prime. The impact would be staggering!

NOSHEEPLE

I already love Ron Paul

I already love Ron Paul and I could barely sit through the history lesson. Neo-cons will not understand that presentation in time for them to vote and they will be driven away by the MSM accusations of "conspiracy theories".

I WANT RON PAUL TO WIN THE ELECTION. The last thing neo-cons will understand is the history of what led to 911 because before they can open their eyes to hear that history they have to have a reason to believe they may have made a mistake in the first place.

Do you really think I don't know how much time and effort went into this production? Do you think I am trying to defeat you? No, I want you to succeed. I want you to continue. My hope and prayer is that you will see that this "game of politics" has rules and you are trying to "pass" information over the heads of the MSM into the hearts of neo-cons. These "passes" must be directly to the neo-cons and they must be properly aimed, properly planted for them to receive and run to get the touchdown. The presidential office is just the touchdown of a big game. There will be time to educate about blowback after the election. But, neo-cons are not prepared to catch the pass of information before the election and we will miss this opportunity for a touchdown if we don't pass the information to the neo-cons.

I too love Ron Paul, but I disagree with you on...

..mainly one thing. They may get the message on time because the 'education' issue you mentioned is not the hold-back. What's holding them back is exposure. The higher the age of the voter, the less Web info gets through to him/her, so television coverage reaches P.O'd Americans who have been looking for the right candidate but didn't know the facts about RP. Until now. If this works well you can count on it being used in other state primaries.

You Are Not Typical

The history lesson was wonderful. Being on TV will give it great credibility, and people flipping channels will get sucked in, without realizing it's an ad.

We don't need to win over the die-hards, we just need to inspire the open-minded, and create doubt in as many die-hards as we can.

Most importantly, the production values make Ron Paul look like a winner, and may tip the balance with everyone who likes him, but thinks "he can't win" is a reason not to vote for him.

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

I agree, please,

the video is good! It will reach people. Criticize it after you, yourself have gone to the trouble of raising the money, and producing it, and making it happen, like they did. Maybe the people who watch this station, are the ones most likely to be swayed. 3.5 million is alot of people to reach. Thank you, Endorse Libery, from the bottom of my heart.

As a Florida voter.....

I voted for Ron Paul in early voting. This is a good video but I think the superPAC could have used funds more wisely. Instead of a full 30 minute video. It would have been better to run at least 2 commericals before the evening news in the major media markets.
I never even heard of this channel it is running on.

But any coverage is better than no coverage.

All I want is for Ron Paul to beat Rick Santorum in Florida. 4 years ago, Ron Paul got 64,000 votes or 3% in Florida. Current polls have him anywhere from 8 to 15 %.

If Ron can do a solid 10% or a little higher it will be a good night.

Chalmers Johnson

Where did he go? Instead, you recited almost verbatim most of his retelling of the U.S.-Iraq history. Was it a licensing issue? 'Cause it was MUCH better with Chalmers.

Like someone else said

I don't think this one works very well.

Where did the guy with the green hat explaining the Shah go? He was terrific.

Now it's music on when they talk about the shah and it's pretty sloppy and not at all as clear as in the original video...

All night Paul!

WHDT on channel 438 Comcast Cable in Palm Beach County has been playing Ron Paul political ads throughout the evening covering Doctor Paul's 2008 & 2012 campaign for Liberty! Here's more regarding WHDT>

Positive "Blowback" from This

...sent it to three people I had not been able to approach. All three said..."I didn't know any of that?" And all, followed with tell me again about him.

I thank the SuperPac...this is going to multi-task for a lot of us. Thanks for this very effective recruiting tool. It is something we can all send to everyone we know and they will send it to others.

People are not used to being told truth this way. It is powerful

What thrills me is that I've felt all along that a candidate..a soul...like Ron Paul presents a totally unique opportunity that no other candidate has. Funny how "truth" opens up all kinds of new avenues...huge open gates that "lies" find impenetrable.

If you repeat a truth often enough, people begin to believe it. We are beginning to all believe that. Before all we knew was if people heard a lie often enough they would believe it.

RevPAC has been airing

RevPAC has been airing Freedom to Fascism, American Dream, For Liberty Recut, and the full-length versions of the Compassion & Adherence ads 8 hours/day for that last 2 weeks, and will continue through the FL primary on Tuesday. On the same channel in FL, WHDT-TV.

that's awesome!

Gary Franchi & crew have been busy, busy, busy!

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

If you want to sustain your audience

If you want to sustain your target audience, I suggest you filter the testimonials throughout the whole video. ESPECIALLY the opening introduction. The single statement from one soldier was not sufficient emotional impact to sustain the negative feelings of the historical presentation. I fear this would lose more votes than it would gain because there is too much hot button information in the beginning. People will just flip the channel if you don't keep the focus on the actual veterans speaking throughout the whole thing.

I do not remember all of the history shown because my negative emotions blocked my ability to listen. Keep the veterans up front and center. Cut back on the history lessons. I don't know how, because my emotions blitzed my brain. You are looking for votes and it is too late to connect with anything other than emotion.

Listen to the veterans is an emotional appeal that calls for a responsible response. The history lesson is non-productive. The blaming of America is negative production. Maybe focus on a single history issue filtered through the veterans telling people why they support Ron Paul and the plea to do something besides put a sticker on your car is very effective. Ditch as much of the history lesson as you can without compromising your integrity.

The veterans and the later Ron Paul debates (the first ones were too negative). The words were good the videography was good, the last half was good. The first half was more than the average neo-con will be able to sustain. You are fishing for neo-cons. Use the right bait.

Out of Curiosity - How Old Are You?

I am 56. The historical events started before my time, but many of them I remember from the news headlines as a kid, and later in life.

I wonder if the reaction to the "history lesson" is age-related.

It is possible that those of us for whom the "history lesson" is a refresher that also connects the dots, are much more drawn in and affected.

We do need to reach older voters.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Agree but..

...I'm sure they're doing what they can to air w/o copyright infringement. Also, does anyone know why they cut out Chalmers Johnson? Thought he carried a lot of weight. Having passed did his family complain?

I agree. The original video

I agree. The original video was better.

"A true competitor wants their opponent at their best." Lao Tzu

Meh...

...not really a fan of this. Showing the twin towers get hit was a bit tasteless, although I understand the desired effect. This feels like a youtube conspiracy theory video, like something out of the Alex Jones camp. There isn't anything untrue, but it smells funny and I don't think it will work on people who don't know history outside of what Fux News told them. Focus on Paul a little more...
