That character was a ranting

That character was a ranting fool and very unbecoming of Dr Paul. Thumbs down.

that was prophetic

I would like to watch the movie now.

Peter Finch

In the Academy Award winning 1976 film 'Network'.

Finch played a raucous Morton Downey type TV moderator, who the network put on for ratings. As the ratings skyrocketed, they started to get an uneasy feeling as his words started a revolution.

When his words starting taking hold with the viewers, they had him shot on air. Seemed silly then, not so anymore.

Liberty and Freedom are a beacon; not a bullet.

Mad as hell

Where did that speech come from? I remember seeing that in a movie years and years ago.

Great speech!

Oh, that's TOO FUNNY!

Oh, that's TOO FUNNY! Somebody put some effort in that and did a really nice job with it. I especially like the way they make him squint and bare his teeth at the end! LOL.

Not my sense of humor

Just had to through my opinion in the ring. I don't like it at all.

Re:

do you not like ron paul or do you not like the movie network? or do you like your peas and carrots separated?

Well

The d00dz speech didn't fit what Paul would say. Paul knows what to do about it. Also it was kind of creepy the way the teeth looked at the end. I love Ron Paul and I loved Network but this didn't work too well.

RON PAUL RON PAUL RON PAUL

Make one of them all standing there together shouting Ron Pauls name. That would be soooooo cool!! HaHaHa ha ha

I bet Dr.Paul

would LOVE to do that at times on the floor of the HOR and also at all the debates with the 4 stooges on stage with him.

That was really good !!!

"Freedom is a right that can never be won in war,only by each individual "

hahaha

Hey , make one of the other candidiates , saying they support Ron Paul, or would that be legal????

Yep, Legal

.
As long as it's satire, and as long as it's a public figure... yes indeed. It would be great if someone could make Rudy or Flubber Thompson give a pro-Paul speech and do the voice too.

If it's an obvious parody it should be legal

I think that's the fight Larry Flynt fought: Rev. Jerry Falwell sued after Hustler printed a grotesque cartoon about him and the US Supreme Court upheld Flynt's right to publish it because even though it was gross and untrue, it was an obvious parody. Per the movie "The People vs. Larry Flynt" with Woody Harrelson as Flynt.

Keep in mind this is only my recollection of the Hollywood version. If you're serious about doing something you'd best consult an attorney.

It was about slander and libel

There has to be evidence that the person responsible intended no harm. That is how the tabloids get away with lying about celebs. (and by "friend of a friend" unnamed sources)
