I was gonna say the same

I was gonna say the same thing, but stated other issues below.. Yes, the acting is just bad... you don't learn anything for this, other than "how great Ron Paul is." with stating why.

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

My 2% of an FRN

For a movie meant to reach the masses, there were too many gratuitous kudos to the Daily Paul faves like Ben Swann, TMOT, etc. These fine folks could have been included in the video's info comments. Plus what about Judge Nap, Jerry Doyle and so many others?

Sad to not see more group shots, like marches, etc. or see more of Paul's ideas communicated. I would have liked to see how Paul's ideas bring different people together and how people who voted for Obama wanted an anti-war candidate to vote for.

The gag reel at the end was also gratuitous and not even funny. Please remove!

Lady liberty was a nice artistic touch. She's all about the youth and strength and beauty of liberty. The part in the bedroom was good, but this whole build-up to the truth-talking anchors was too long.

Should have ended w a good Ron Paul song or medley of Ron Paul songs. I'd love to see this film evolve a bit!

Thanks to everyone who worked on this. It's a great idea and the right editing could get a huge audience.

I actually agree. I know we

I actually agree. I know we are gonna get voted down, but I don't give lip service to something just for the sake of it. But despite the great effort, which they should get awarded for, there are simply issues with the video that can't be overlooked. At least it looked professional.

If a video is meant for a mass audience, you can't just make an unrealistic video with reported espousing soundbites from the DailyPaul and making it a Ron Paul love fest. It was basically 15 minutes about how great Paul is. Well, WE know he is. We don't need to be convinced. You need to reach others.

Better videos that do that is the YOU LIKE PAUL, BUT HIS FOREIGN POLICY video with facts, emotions and real experts.

If this was just made for Dailypaul, then so be it, but that would be a limited goal.

Besides, it was way too long. Too much repeated stuff. WHy do you need over 2 minutes of credits ar the end? There were other things but I will just nitpick..

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

I don't think you should be

voted down at all as those are legitimate observations and I felt similar the first time watching. I will say though IMHO that the cheesiness comes from us all being so engulfed in this. People that have never been to the daily paul or heard of ben swann or TMOT or any of these other things it will not be cheesy to them. All we can hope for is that people want to investigate themselves, using the internet. There are a multitude of great terms and names for people to search for and that is all we can ask, for them to search and come to their own conclusions.

The main problem is I don't

The main problem is I don't learn a thing about Ron Paul from the 15 minute short film. I mean, nothing. That's a huge no no for me.

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


edit: not sure why this posted here.

get this to every delegate and beyond!

Awesome work Jeremy!

I think these two together really set a good tone




Best clip I have seen in a long time...........and I posted it in the comments on the HuffingtonPost........lol........and it is there!

We need to sent this to Rachael Maddow, Blitzer, King, etc....all of them..

And yes people from all over the world are invited to come to Tampa and see a historic event!

This will be a modern day David and goliath story!

Awesome thank you

Awesome thank you

Show it, spread it, share it!

All the way to the historic convention in Tampa! Ron Paul versus Obama and the winner is (truth button), Liberty!

Great Job!



Best thing I've watched in quite a while. =) Thanks!

Great job Jeremy!

Sharing everywhere!

9-11 Media Fakery: Did anyone die on 9-11?


9-11 Actors:

Pysops.. media.. actors.. propagandists... disinfo agents.. fake videos.. fake photos

So let me get this straight,

So let me get this straight, it's too long to go viral, but Kony 2012 was twice as long and was one of the most viral vids ever...

Oh that's right, Kony 2012 was about a handsome guy talking about a 'bad man' thousands of miles away from here, just like every other propaganda piece on the news...

Why are people so worried

Why are people so worried about that "half-naked" woman? She has like a bikini on ffs, it's not like THAT is going to turn people off from this kick-a video. Like we haven't ever seen a girl in a bikini, geez.


That *will* turn some people off. I agree with what the poster below said about it.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

This is Spot on!

I know A lot of you DP'er dont watch the MSM anymore because you have the Freedom of The Internet. I still do however, and in their Elections Segments all they talk about is the "Presumptive" Nominee mitharlamule grittens O'bamny screwed up against his adopted brother The Incumbent O'bamny grittens mitharlamule. People will wake up to how Ridiculous these Clowns look on TV. They talk report the most Ridiculous things meanwhile everyone is hurting in this Economy!

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

And kudos to Jeremy for this great

short. One more terrific grassroots effort to further the cause of Liberty.

Love the film but...

You really do need to lose the half naked gal. I feel personally that it cheapens the whole flick as an attempted appeal not to intellect but primal instincts...people are not that dumb so please don't insult them.

Also, the use of the curse word, bleeped or otherwise, strikes me as course and unnecessary.

Otherwise, this was a rocking piece of work that got the blood going. Good job!

"Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books...Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: 'I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't. I can. And my children will."

-Jimmy Stewart

That falls into the realm of artistic judgement

Anyone is welcome to make their own film with no swimsuited pretty people if that is wanted. This film was Jeremy's, and he make a good addition to the Liberty film library.

Btw, half-naked would be either no top or no bottom. The girl had both, an ordinary swimsuit seen at any beach or pool, not considered immodest by today's standards. Too much prudishness in this thread and too much nitpickiness of good work IMO.

I agree completely.

I just have to point out

the irony of saying "people are not that dumb" when we are trying to reach Romney delegates.

half naked girl could be

a symbol of beauty. Beauty of mind, of freedom, of man and woman, a universal beauty of peace on earth. Now, how about that?



"Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear." - Benjamin Franklin

There is a time for everything under the sun...

When something is given to us, as a movement, of such high quality and with donated time and creative energy, it is not the time to pick it to pieces. There is thoughtful criticism and then there is just the plain simple act of exposing oneself as a (not-even-worthy-of-being-called a) hipster wannabe film critic.

Seriously, folks,...it's catchin' on, I'm tellin' ya ;)

Thank You Jeremy.

I'll see you in Tampa!

are people on this site tyrants or just dont know art

the comments are ridiculous..... its a film, made by someone to be passed along, quit the amateur Siskel and Ebert and just accept the art, I thought we were Libertarians, not bitter "has beens" in the film industry. it did the job for me till i read the comments, I was starting to get motivated again then crashed down by the harshness of bashing someones elses hard work. "Boring" topped it for me......its not a fucking Christopher Nolan masterpiece with a million dollar budget.to live for all time..its a dated poignant P.S.A..."needs to be more powerful"..?.....fuck me, make your own powerful moving announcement.......
