What are you talking about?

What are you talking about? When did I say YOU said shut up? Read what I wrote.

"I have an issue with people telling the ones that don't like it to shut up in so many words."

That means no one really LITERALLY said SHUT UP, but that the attacks and vote downs were meant to do the same...

You are getting way too defensive... I was expressing my over all beef here on the thread..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

What are YOU talking about?

Then why did you direct it at me?

Here it is again:

"I have an issue with people telling the ones that don't like it to shut up in so many words."

When you write anything couched with "in so many words" it means that you are basically quoting them. That is what this phrase is used for in English. So, if you do not want people to react negatively and feel they are being personally misquoted then please don't use this phrase.

Peace out...

I never said YOU. I said people, and I already told you I had an issue with the overall sentiment from PEOPLE that criticized others for not liking it. If you are one of them , it included you, if not, then it didn't.

WTF? Don't get too sensitive on me... BTW "basically" just means a conclusion without any support...

Peace in....

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...


This was a gift? Oh what a precious and wonderful gift. You fanboys need to grow up. People have their own opinions on what is pleasing to them. You claim this or that person is hurting something by having a negative opinion about some video. Truth of the matter is you don't have a damn clue what others on here believe nor what they have done to get Ron Paul elected. As for you not wanting to stifle freedom of speech yes you in fact are. You don't agree with negative comments so you want them to stop. How else would you classify that? You are no better then the liberals and neocons, you want things your way but you want to cover it up with some liberty label. Those of us here giving our honest opinions are truly expressing liberty and you are doing nothing but showing your true colors.

LOL! Your funny...

YOu have no idea who I am! LOL...

I've been active member here over 3 years, Long time members know who I am and what I have done for the Liberty movement.

You've been here all of what... 7 weeks? but you know me well enough to criticize, judge and label me.

Now that gives a TON of merit to your opinions too.

Like I said below

I SEE with my own eyes what you are writing that pretty much tells me who you are right there. If your activity involves suppression of differing opinions then perhaps you belong as I said... over there -->
Also, I didn't need to be on this site I was far to busy actually doing something so you can take your "I've been here three years" and shove it. Your actions now are showing that you are a hypocrite and want only freedom to do what you like. Some liberty that is.

REally? and you assume I've

REally? and you assume I've done nothing! Now that is funny!

Wow, you're good...you've seen though my ruse, I am exposed at last! I guess I will have to go slink off after your scathing, tongue lashing!

Actually I off to have dinner with my family! Nice folks!

YOu can go troll for others to take your bait...

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

I gave my opinion on a poor movie

the troll here is you.


member for 7 weeks and 5 days.....

it wasn't good

so? All the best intentions in the world don't make it any better. I think the true patriots on here cherish individualism. Those of us that think it isn't very good have just as much a right to our opinion as anyone else. We don't need to jump on the "anything that has to do with Paul is good." If you genuinely liked it fine, but dont expect those of us who don't to follow blindly like sheep.


I gotta admit, I've been an highly active part of the Liberty movement for over 4 years, I haven't been called a sheep in a long time. Don't you think it's a little presumptious of you to label me when you don't even know me or what I have done?

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

not at all

because I SEE what you are doing right here. I presume nothing.


Shame on Siskel and Ebert!

And shame on all those criticizing politicians. So the only ones that can criticize politicians are other politicians?

Good artists can take valid criticism and do something with it. Jeremy has done something awesome, but I think he's pro enough to listen to a little friendly feedback.

Oh, BS! What can he do in the 11th hour?

Do you really think you are on the level of Siskel or Ebert?

Politics is not art, so your arguement is invalid. AS an designer, I appreciate honest critism from others in my field, but not so much from people who have no idea what it takes to do what I do. I will listen,but it usually goes in the round file as they are not privy to my design parameters and initial goals. Just as you are not privy to the goals Jeremy created for this project either. For this reason you are not in the postion to critique as to whether or not he met them. Sabe?

Go make a movie...then, perhaps your critism will have real merit for you will have the expertise to go with all those opinions.

That is what I meant by arm chair quarterbacks...

More 1st amendment stifling

Movies are made for an audience not other filmmakers. Their opinions are the ones that matter. Where did you learn that we should all follow the leader like sheep? oh wait this Murika.

You are stifling my right to express my opinion too!

What a pack of hypocrites here today!

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle


opinion is that no one else should voice theirs. I'd say that your opinion is not valid and flies in the face of what the people here are supposed to believe in. If you want to join with a pack of sheep who want to censor anything they don't agree with MRC is that way -->



Know your stuff, learn real history and economics @LibertyClassroom.com

It is awesome. I teared up and said to myself...

"This is what all the delegates need to see." The only thing I would edit out are the bloopers at the end. Is it because I'm female I didn't notice a half naked woman? I will have to go back and watch it again!


I suspect that 'Lady Liberty' may account for more than a few 're-views'.. :P

LOL! I didn't notice either! It must be a guy thing!

I saw a lady with a flag wrapped around her. I need to watch again, too.
Thank you, Jeremy!

Three thumbs up!

Great job Jeremy!

aaaaaaaaaaand SENT!

thank you so much for this Jeremy.

Make sure you watch this twice

I can say that after spending 3 nights waiting for this to come and falling asleep before it did last night on my first watch I was about to be one of the critics. I definitely felt what some of the detractors have said. However, several hours later I watched this again and I can't say how happy I am that I didn't not post my first thoughts on this.

I realized that, like someone below mentioned, that it was more my mind inventing expectations and a bad taste in my mouth from the long wait. However, I do not want to insinuate that "if you just lower your expectations" you will like it. I think it truly is a quality work and somehow the first time I missed the message. I think that comes from so much being engulfed in all of this that many things that would seem cheesy really were not.

I may not be able to explain this well, but the best way to describe this is that I was originally disappointed because unlike some videos, like say of the crowds chanting "president paul", I did not get chills. Second time around I had chills the entire time, because I think you did a great job in a short amount of time giving people names and keywords to lookup. The first time around I did not like the beginning- second time around I thought it was great. The first time I thought "truth" button was corny, second time around I thought what a great idea for people to start considering that what they are seeing on TV in not the truth.

I wouldn't have said it this morning, but Great job man, and it was worth the wait. Make sure you watch it twice!


It was better the 2nd time I watched... I understood the flow

Bravo Jeremy

Thanks to all that helped create this. No matter what the critics say, It's always a treat seeing all the talented artists and their creations that have been inspired by Ron and the Liberty Loving Supporters over the last 5 years. Cheers!!!

Suddenly I'm thirsty for a big old glass of LIBERTY!!! I'm going to go get one right now.

What do you think of this? www.theonlinemarket.org

This is...


At first watch I was kinda let down for a second but then I realized it's because of the waiting and antisipation and time for my imagination too make my own movie in my head that made it that way.

Watched it again and it's AWESOME. Thank you!!

Thanks for all the effort and money you put into this.

I find myself wishing it was faster-moving, harder hitting, but that may be a generational thing. Younger people may really go for this. (Me? Sixty six.)

New Hampshire and Ecuador.


i was actually disappointed,the acting is cheazy and i wonder if anyone will take this seriously.hopefully it will..

Ron Paul 2012!
