Wonder what the media will be focusing on on this day?
Times of great crisis in history are usually the crucible from which nations form new leaders and new visions. Such leaders seem to suddenly appear, often out of nowhere, to alter the national path pursued, to cleanse the old ways and stake out a saner, more just means of living and governing.
Is it God, destiny, fate that are somehow at work to bring about a saving metamorphosis in which some visionary soul rises to the occasion to stir the passions of the people and bring about a righting of the ship? Whatever the force may be, our country is in dire need of its power today.

Ron Paul Launches National-Security Themed Ad
Email 30 Smaller Font Text Larger Text | Print
Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul is out with a new ad that portrays him as a veteran who will secure America’s borders and rebuild its defenses.
The 30-second spot titled “Secure” includes flashing images of military helicopters and aircraft carriers. The ad states that America will not be the world’s policeman and spend trillions overseas.
Today is the ten year anniversary of the U.S.'s invasion and occupation of Afghanistan:
On the ten year anniversary of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, let's take a moment to think about who we're fighting and why.
I am starting this thread to compile some good suggestions of talking points that could be sent to the campaign and probably be used in the coming 2 debates. I am not saying that Ron Paul is not knowledgeable enough or anything like that, but this effort may bring about some sound bites which are the things that work in the debates.
Lets categorize the suggestions according to issues -
1)Economy, debt, federal reserve
3)Foreign policy, Israel, foreign aid
4)Liberties, patriot act, Al-Awlaki assassination,
5)General debate suggestions
Awesome reincarnation of Dr. Paul's 'Imagine' update! Very powerful!
Not sure if this was already submitted but here it is. I'm not saying what anyone should do but this is a great message that I am willing to get behind.
I would like to present an idea for a BTO video.
Take some simple Ron videos, like the ones from CSPAN where he is talking about specific issues.
Black out his face in that, and change the voice pitch so that it is unrecognizable but understandable.
Arrange the video segments according to issues - or make separate vids for separate issues.
"who predicted the housing and subprime bubble"
1)Start with Economy, including the debt, and Fed.
"Who predicted the blowback due to faulty foreign policies"
3) cutting foreign aid to "enemies" of Israel
4) Bring troops home.
Keep distance until it plays out more. Support their right to free speech, but WE need to keep our eye on the ball. And the prize. The last thing we need to do is join hands with this primarily socialist uprising and kill Dr. Paul's campaign with bad press.
The OWS crowd is dumb as rocks, they don't even know what the problem is. We're not going to educate them in 5 or 10 minutes in the midst of a volatile environment. There are less than 3 months left to the first primaries and we should instead be focusing on educating the Republican voters who are actually going to be voting.
