Does anyone

Hello. Does anyone know anything about a video that was supposed to put out today by Jeremy Richter about Ron Paul? I couldn't find a thread that was specifically about that release, which is why I posted here.

**Nevermind. It was on the front page of the DP. Not sure how I missed it.

Two shorten the road.

The slobberfest continues...nothing new, nothing learned

When is somebody going to ask this guy some difficult questions? I like Doug Wead as a person but refuse to swallow this crap without question.

First, Doug talks about Rand Paul like he is some sort of Messiah for playing politics as usual and endorsing Romney. I can't believe this guy is still on the payroll! Many of us gave our last few pennies to this campaign during a recession. And for what? So our Senior Campaign Advisor could shower a Mitt Romney supporter with praise? While still on the payroll? Embarrassing!!!

Second, what happened to an irrate tireless minority? Now Doug Wead tells us to be patient and stick with the campaign through the convention. Always trust Dr. Paul when he speaks and when he is silent too. How convenient! Are you kidding me? Who believes this nonsense? Wake Up People! Blind obedience is for the weak minded!!!

Doug Wead:

A great guy: congenial, genuine, straight shooter and I laugh with him. Great interview by Tracy and Josh...Thanks!

Clueless Disenfranchised Kids who Don't realize its over

The thugs have won. They cheated. They will always be able to cheat because they have endless money which they print out of thin air (or set up conditions to hand it to wall street megahuxters). Maybe when their numbers reach 1/10 of one millionth of one percent they wont be able to steal the nomination.

But America of course doesn't have the time to wait.

But it doesn't matter because they just cheat.

And no one says anything.

Until there is a leader with a SPINE and able to PUNCH BACK for every dirty trick they pull... we won't win.

You can go back to your young eyed idealism ... maybe Rand will have a chance in 2016 I think NOT because I DOUBT Ron Paul supporters will support Rand. Who wants another boot stomping when no one stands up for you?

Best part of that whole stream

Was near the end of the stream when I rallied the chat for Matt Larson to say "I'm Matt Larson 10, Go Ron Paul! Peace!"

Can't wait 4 days from now to see that video by Jeremy Richter.

thanks Doug!

just the 'up' the R3VOL and DP needed!

Predictions in due Time...

"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

Thank you

Doug for making it clear, the campaign has a strategy, and grass roots events like Paulfest should vet their decisions with the campaign prior to doing anything, since we don't want these events working against our strategy. Just what many of us have been saying here for a while. I highly doubt GJ speaking spot was vetted through the campaign. I agree we need to remain united through the convention. And all the GJ talk is working against our unity.

Second, I appreciate your comments around Rand Paul, and agree completely with you.

TY Doug

Sorry, Doug, but my loyalty

Sorry, Doug, but my loyalty is primarily to the US Constitution, not ANY man. Ron has clearly made mistakes as shown by the actions of certain members of his staff so we know that he's human at least. ;) As long as Ron is faithful to the US Constitution which he has shown to be over several decades, then I'll support him. BUT my loyalty is reserved ONLY to the original interpretation of the US Constitution. Hence, I'll support ANYONE who strictly supports the US Constitution which naturally includes numerous other groups fighting to restore the US Constitution even if part of the remedy lies in court.

I have to agree with you

My take is Ron Paul is the only one in the campaign to be trusted. I kept hearing negatives coming from Doug. Like we are almost at the end and support him til the convention. We all seem to have larger dreams than Doug Wead. We intend to get Ron the Nomination and Doug Wead seems to be still in the make a statement at the convention mode. I see a lack of enthusiasm. We do not have him convinced yet. We will win with doug or without him. If the most liberal state in the country (Oregon) can gather all the at large delegates for Ron Paul The Nomination is in our hands. Lets put him in the white house.

We hope that you all enjoyed the interview as much as we did...

and be sure to check back with us as we have more interviews and shows in the near future.

I kind of like Doug

Seems like a nice guy to me. I know what happened with him and Bush. I think it was a good thing. The BushI just family is slimy trash. I know he wouldn't work with Ron if he was a bad person and I know Ron wouldn't work with him if he was a bad person. Benton on the other hand is not very good, I am being nice. But of course I have been thinking lately what if they were all in on it. Not that Ron was running a scam or anything. But Benton may have been just "play his part". I don't know. All I know is I still see Paul as a super hero and our savior, he is my president.

Also I just read some where Rand votes no against legislation for GMO food labeling. All I can say is not good.

Doug Wead has worked in 7 presidential campaigns, and was able

to give perspective on things that were very valuable. I think what is different about us is we have a campaign AND a grassroots. I think that is what the media and RNC find hard to deal with.


Love Doug Wead's

Would love to see him as a liberty candidate in the future!
He's 11 yrs younger than Dr Paul, run Doug run! :-)
You'd get a lot of our support.

Ground yourself...

You have to support liberty to be a liberty candidate. Doug has a record that proves the opposite. He is a tool for the campaign and nothing more. Let the Doug Wead cheer-leading section now commence the down-voting.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.


what a great interview, thanks Doug.

I don't mean to sound totally

I don't mean to sound totally ignorant of political protocol but why did Ron Paul Campaign announce their game plan to amass delegate count so early in the process? If this strategy was successfully being done...why did you give the opponents a heads up with TV announcements of this happening only to see it scuppered one by one?

I have often wondered the same thing

My guess is they figured getting the word out to supporters to become delegates was priority.

i think

they made it public for the supporters, cause there was a overwhelming negative attitude every time Paul didn't win a state and it became quite clear they were not going to let him win one popular vote, so i think they did what they had to do to get people involved.

I have often wondered the same thing

My guess is they figured getting the word out to supporters to become delegates was priority.

There is another reason

Getting word out to the grassroots that the only way we will be able to change things is by getting involved and taking over. Do we really think Ron did not know just how corrupt these people are?

Now we know. We have now seen first hand how far they will go, even if it means cheating and stealing the primaries, making up rules to disqualify the delegates, breaking bones, and arresting people. I mean they were not even trying to hide it.

Were we all so naive that we thought we were going to fix this lawless mess with one presidential campaign.

You know what really bothers me more than anything? Its ike they are laughing at us and flipping us the bird. Look how much power we have and you can't do a dam thing about it because we control the process!

I mean where do you go to address this mauch corruption inthe election process, hell the courts are corrupt too, especially in Massachusetts.


Who is that bored gal in the background?

And is doug wearing pants?

I enjoyed the interview

Doug Wead has that calming effect and I think it's exactly what we needed. Emails are sort of ok, but they just can't convey anything close to hearing a person voice. Ron Paul did not quit so I can understand Doug just can't talk too much about certain details of the campaign.

Agree or disagree, but I came away feeling good.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

I'm Sorry But I Don't Think Wead Has Anything Meaningful To

Report..Wead like Benton and Rand are either stupid, ill informed or just plain incompetant. The only person who counts for me is Ron Paul.

I'm in this because of Ron Paul, not wead, nor benton or Rand...Period.

Nothing counts until the lawyers sort things out and Ron Paul gets nominated at the RNC..

If Paul doesn't get nominated, everything else as far as I'm concerned is meaningless, save the liberty people in key positions in various state and federal positions..

We have to get them delegates unbound as well as Ron Paul qualified to be nominated and we won't know these two important things for awhile.

I don't trust or like Wead, Benton nor Rand anymore.

The only one I trust is Ron Paul..

You guys can do what you want but as for me i love and respect only Ron Paul right now...

Just watched the video.

and have a couple of remarks.

His point about Rand Paul is well taken. "That's how politics is played... He (Rand) actually has a chance to become president" (speaking of 4 years from now). Doug Wead knows where a lot of skeletons are hiding, and his body language, demeanor, etc. is 100% authentic when he talks about Rand in that video. He seems to be hiding some cards on other points, but with regard to Rand, he's shooting straight.

With regard to Paul Festival, his comments include "Dr. Paul is trying to figure out what the right thing to do is" and "Dr. Paul has to be responsible for his name and how his name is used" and "I don't know what they have planned, or who they've invited, or who they haven't invited, and all the details of it, to be able to speak intelligently on it, and I'm sure he doesn't know yet either... But so many people are interested in it, and want to go down there, that I suspect that he will respond to that...(he referred to a Gandhi reference then, about people uniting when "things are really, really bad" because then they are ready to compromise) "I urge people to be patient and wait to see what Dr. Paul's decisions are about some of these things." (then Wead went back to Rand). Eventually he did say he would be happy to appear at Paul Festival himself, if it could be worked out.

"There is a commitment to stick with him (Dr. Paul) through this convention and this campaign. Because unity brings success."

THEN, the question was asked about the Veterans for Ron Paul march, and (now I owe an apology to the poster who responded to my question about vetting, because NOW I see his/her point) Wead kind of sat back and said "Fascinating. Yeah, that's fascinating" and "I would encourage anybody who's planning anything to try to vet it with the campaign, so that what Dr. Paul's doing, his message and his plans, aren't unintentionally disrupted or hurt."

There is a little more to the video that is WELL worth watching. still doesn't answer the question

Why is it that in 2008 we didn't have this problem with a liberty festival. We had many people and bands and all kinds of things and many speakers, too. Ron Paul was the focal point then, and he would be the focal point at the festival now so, I just don't get it, and nobody has explained to me why it can't work out this way this time.

The campaign and Dr. Paul need to be specific if they want Adam Kokesh to step aside, then they should ask for that, and I sure wouldn't be sheepish about it. Why? Because there are too too many supporters trying to make plans to come to this celebration, so if they want this to be a success, somebody needs to step up to the plate and start communicating.....and they need to do it now.

I, for one, am frustrated, because I have airline tickets I have to buy, and I'm coming clear across the country so I would really appreciate if somebody would get this together and figure things out now. This isn't a chess game. If Ron wants to manage the whole event, good. I sure don't mind. He would need to be careful who he invites, too, as far as that goes.

Now is different

Because we have 500 plus delegates and a chance to implement our strategy. In 2008 there was nothing to gain or lose at the convention. Now the roots has to be on the same page as the campaign to ensure they don't accidentally destroy all we worked for,

So kokes, Paulfest, the GJ speaking spot, all should and need to be vetted with the campaign PRIOR to the convention, so the campaign can ensure Dr Paul's strategy is carried out properly

I know, it's frustrating,

but it sounds to me like Dr. Paul has not yet decided what to do about Paul Fest. There is also the issue of rules of SuperPACs, and how candidates are NOT supposed to coordinate with these PACs. (Of course, there was that article I linked to today about Romney's campaign coordinating with a SuperPAC, so really they don't have much high ground to cast judgment from.)

Wead's message was, be patient. That sounds like good advice.

There are a lot of reasons why 2012 is different from 2008 (existence of SuperPACs, much more grassroots support for Paul, successful delegate strategy, the fact that Gary Johnson is the Libertarian candidate for Pres, etc.) Hang in there. At least regarding Paul Fest, it seems to me that some decisions will have to be made soon or it will become apparent that the Liberty Unleashed PAC has its own agenda. Let's wait and see.
