Thank you to Scanning the Waves for the support and the uploads.
Considering the only other media person that even sort of pays attention to Ron Paul is Lou Dobbs, I wouldn't be so quick to write off Glenn Beck.
He is slowly educating himself. Give him time. He'll come around. Realize that it may be too late for him to do any good for RP's candidacy but having him as an ally in the long run would do wonders for our movement.
He has come a long way since the first interview, thats for sure.
I like that at the bottom of the screen it said: Rep. Ron Paul GOP presidenial candidate. Not former candidate.
Ask not what your country can do for you. But what you can do for yourself.
The ronpauldotcom youtube channel put out a version. One piece.
Many RP supporting delegates being sent from MO, TX, Alaska. and even the roomer of MO possibly overturning the bound rule before the convention.
Unless I am mistaken, Bound means by promise and braking the promise has no legal ramifications just party sanction if they so choose to. But since we are the party we can vote against any repercussions. A delegate revolt is not an impossibility just VERY unlikely. However the reason the system is set up the way it is is for the delegates to be DYNAMIC votes. A vote that can change based on many factors to nominate the BEST person for the country.
a write-in campaign.
all electronic voting machines will have a write-in option and it will give you a virtual keyboard to type in "Ron Paul"!!!
something on blackboxvoting that some machines in some states don't have an option to write/type in a different candidate. You have to get a provisional or absentee ballot in those states.
congress at www.congress.org and tell them you want the paper ballot back, or leave town on that day and make sure you follow all rules to vote by absentee. (if we are lucky they would get counted, unlike Florida in 04) Also, go to http:ronpauldonatetoday.blogspot.com and vote in the polls.
Unless RP does decide to go third-party after the Republican convention.
Lately, GB always says at the end of the interview that while he disagrees with RP on other things, he agrees with the stuff Ron has just said. I'm assuming the things he disagrees with have to do with the "War on Terror." Why can't folks like Beck understand that it's all tied together? "Conservative" politicians use demagoguery just as effectively to promote warfare as "liberal" politicians use it to promote welfare, and our stupid monetary system has made it possible for them to spend trillions on both.
At the end, after Beck was finished restating many of the things Ron has been saying for 30 years, and praising him for being the only one talking about our real problems, I just wanted Ron to ask him, "So why the heck didn't you support me?"
The Warfare State, of course. Many Republicans would get on swimmingly with Ron Paul, if he just weren't so darn civilized in his foreign policy.

Glenn Beck is a lot like the average delegate. It has taken him a while to awaken to the fact the old fashion Ron Paul is "right on" in what he's been saying, and saying for years, making him all that more credible. The GOP Establishment would like for everyone to think this is a done deal already. That's why they're rushing the agenda to begin raising money on behalf of McCain. What if hundreds and hundreds of delegates were like Glenn Beck, and after some real thinking, decided to abandon McCain for a sound tactician like Ron Paul? Notice that we're not talking about thousands and thousands of delegates, only a tiny number. But, are these delegates so strong armed by the GOP that they won't entertain the possibility? I sure like the idea of producing a quality DVD of the Ron Paul messege and going directly at the delegates. There are less than 2000 people to target, and if nothing else, the effort will draw more attention to the messege of Ron Paul. Forget the masses of public for now, we really don't matter at the moment.
that Glenn Beck is finally waking up ?(and maybe eventually realize what a tool he's been)
Listen to what he says from about 6:10 to 6:50
Glenn Beck has always been in support of the Ron Paul Philosophy, it is idiots like you that didn't actually listen to things he believes in and in causes he follows and started sending him death threats.
I have been listening to Glenn since the days when he was barely scraping by making a mere $52k (6-7 years). When it was just a few affiliates on no names stations. He has always been ahead of his times and has always espoused ideas similar to the libertarian causes. You just failed to realize it and lumped him into the same group of those idiots over at Fox News and that big fat heap of lard Rush Limbaugh.
Just a comment regarding what you accused Americans who support RP regarding Glenn Beck and his earlier treatment of RP of...
I watched all his episodes and viewed his quite negative treatment of RP which, I do believe, did improve after he got to know and understand Dr. Paul as a person.
Also, there was TREMENDOUS PRESSURE from all the Americans who supported Ron Paul's ideological beliefs. We emailed Glenn Beck and pointed out his conservative stances, etc., etc.
TO ALL SUPPORTERS:
GLENN BECK is changing, learning, & growing. He might as well have said to Ron Paul, "please, will you run as a 3rd party candidate?", because he is beginning to realize that it is MUCH BETTER to have Ron Paul in office to stop illegal immigration, MUCH BETTER to have him in office making systematic and progressive changes to our financial system (including a merging into the use of gold & silver again as a first step), and MUCH BETTER having him at the helm than any of the other 3 political puppets!
My sense is he is also beginning to realize that maybe, just maybe Ron Paul may be able to deal with these Middle Eastern countries, in his own way, and might, just maybe, make things BETTER there and less contentious, because the 3 political puppets will be extremely contentious with the leaders in the Middle East, and certainly they will NOT stop illegal immigration, and at the end of the day, these political puppets really just don't give a care about the American values and beliefs regarding illegal immigration or any other subject, as far as that goes!
Glenn Beck is a YOUNG man and has a YOUNG family, and he is really seriously looking at their future, and he is worried about them & all of our children.
These are my "takes" on things...but, he is changing, just like it happened for the rest of us. It was slow, but it certainly is an "awakening".
I am very happy for Glenn Beck and consider him a friend now. I understand his fears about the "terrorists", but if we have to dig Saddam Hussein, the President of Iraq, out of a hole in the ground, does this tell us something?? Good grief. Yes, true, a few individuals could come over here and blow a few buildings or buses up, and that would be bad, but I think Glenn Beck is realizing just how much we NEED RON PAUL in office, because at least, he'd stop the "terrorists" from entering our country!!! As far as worrying about nuclear attacks in the future, all I can say is THINGS CHANGE. Look at China, yet we don't see them as a threat...
THAT IS THE CRUX OF THE ISSUE...
to speak counter to the pre-scripted agenda of the MSM, he would be taken off the air immediately.
On CNN, at least. On radio, he could still soar.
He may be looking at Alex Jones' and George Noory's numbers, and reevaluating his pro-establishment stance.
I've seen all sorts of Ron Paul posters going up in PA before the republican primary. I've gotten pleas for money as recently as this morning via email. You've got money bombs. You've got the "nuts" that still think there is some secret Abe Lincolnesce way for Dr. Paul to win the Republican nomination. I thought a candidate just needed 1191 delegates to wrap it up? McCain has 1260 according to:
And even if he didn't have it locked up, Romney is listed with 272, Huckabee with 270, and Dr. Paul a pathetic 14. At what point do you decide its a waste of time and money to continue a lost campaign? OK, maybe McCain has a heart attack or something - so what, Romney would be back in the race quicker than you can say lickety split - Ron Paul has no chance. 3rd party? Get real, if he could only get 14 delegates do you think he can win as a 3rd party? What is up with all the silly Ron Paul supporters? Don't get me wrong, I'm a Ron Paul supporter myself, and I'll vote for him in the primary, but its just because there is no better choice and its a statement from principle.
If you want to talk about 3rd party runs, you need to find a candidate with a LOT of name/face recognition, probably an actor, that agrees with the Ron Paul platform. I don't know if any such potential candidate exists. But its the only hope for victory.
They've been part of the problem since day one.
Good luck to us all,
Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!
You need someone with a sh*t-ton of cash. Third party candidates are marginalized unless that candidate has the means to support a massive television campaign.
If a Third Party candidacy were declared, the Money Bombs would come back, and WE would provide the necessary cash.
With all due respect to Dr. Paul--and his bad taste with the previous Libertarian party run--when he ran for president in 1988, he was a NOBODY, early in his Congressional career with zero name recognition. Today he is an international celebrity. That would greatly increase his chances of winning.
...I believe it is because the MSM no longer see RP as a Threat. Lets face it, they have convinced the Sheeple that he has dropped out, and they have stopped listening. As long as he is not viewed as a threat, they will cover him objectively. That is GOOD for RP!
How interesting to see Beck come around to Ron Paul's economic views.
I almost want to take back all the nasty things I said about Beck in November and December.
Well, not really. But hey, he's improving. ;)
As long as it costs nothing for the fed to inflate the money, they'll keep on doing it. The fed should be taxed in gold, and charged a troy ounce for every dollar they issue above the current level of Federal Reserve Notes in circulation.
"The problem with trying to child-proof the world, is that it makes people neglect the far more important task of world-proofing the child." -- Hugh Daniel
paying the FED interest on the money they print out of thin air? How about if Congress takes back the power to print US money and actually oversees / decides monetary policy? Why tax the FED when we can take away their power?
finally the country is looking at Ron Paul, and without ridicule. Finally.
"The real terrorist's are in this country. They are not planning to blow us up,......... but rather, take our money, our freedom, and our country."
..only had 22 Delegates....RP has more.
Anyone who advocates a 3rd party run now does not understand how the Delegate process works. No I am sorry, until after the Convention the 3rd party card is moot. As far as I can tell, the current state of our economy is the best FREE advertising RP ever had, not that it is really free, since we ALL are paying for it.
If you have Primaries and Caucus' coming up, then please participate and vote for Ron Paul.
States that have both primaries and Caucus' may not have RP as a choice at the Caucus--MA only has Romney and McCain whom the delegates must pledge to--THAT BEING SAID, if McCain does not get the required 1100+ votes needed on the 1st Draw, the Delegates can vote for WHOMEVER they want---That is how Lincoln did it. RP folks trying to be Delegates KNOW this. That is why there is a Convention--would not need one if the nominee was decided by the so-called "Popular Vote."
If McCain truly has the Populous vote, then he should win on the 1st draw, but if he does not, MARK MY WORDS....he will NOT get the Nomination.
I support both strategies.
I am a proponent of a Third Party run, but I realize his publicity and exposure will probably be greater if Ron 'stays the course' until the convention. Let's see if the delegate changeovers can work.
After the convention, if McCain receives the nomination, it will be the proper time to immediately run Third Party. Dr. Paul should be able to do this without losing his Congressonal seat.
If Ron Paul does not prevail at the convention then that would be the PERFECT TIME to announce a run for 3rd Party Run. If he does it now BEFORE the convention, he would lose credibility. That was what Perot did when did DROPPED out and then CAME back into the Race.
Just like awards, one OH SH_T, and the past AWARDS mean NOTHING!
Might be good to post the video from Ron's official Youtube page---cause that's the one that will get the most views...and thus higher up on YOUTUBE.
Here it is: http://youtube.com/watch?v=3i6D_tWetv8
Could we post this one instead?
