New Ron Paul TV Ad: "Great Nations Stumble"

First or second for Ron Paul in NH or bust.

Bust = he's still a kingmaker at the brokered GOP convention.

First or second in NH (plus his $20 million) means the MSM and especially the laughably corrupt Fox News have to start paying serious attention, and allow his message to be heard.

Ron Paul has a considerable war chest, no way he quits until after super Tuesday. He may continue to run until all the votes are in.

Ron Paul will indeed go all the way to the GOP convention - he will not drop out no matter what

And if he can pick up 10% of the delegates or more, he may be in a position to choose who the nominee is.

And that nominee will have to agree to some of the things Ron Paul demands.

Now THAT would make it all worth it.

Question is - if you were Ron Paul, what would your top two demands be?

Keith-- that's the problem.

Ron Paul is going to sell you out.

For something like a cabinet-position promise to a candidate who has no shot at winning the general election, Ron Paul is going to take his "rEVOLution" (lettering conveniently swiped from the Beatles, btw) and all of the money he's raised, and he's going to pledge his support to either Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee.

And Romney and Huckabee will take that endorsement, and that money, and you'll be left with a gigantic hole where your heart used to be, because either you A) listen to Ron Paul and wind up voting for one of those chumps, or B) stay home.

Picking up 10% of the delegates would be a curse, don't you see? Because guess what, the moment he cuts a deal with any of the candidates, he isn't going to run in the general as an independent.

If Ron Paul doesn't win New Hampshire, and I mean win big-time walking away, people have got to jump off the bandwagon immediately. Otherwise, they're going to wind up being sold to a candidate that they don't necessarily like.

NH is a much more educated state than Iowa. Suckabee will not do very well.

I just donated $100 to Ron Paul. I know it's only a hundred bucks, but I believe in him. He is the only honest guy out there. And I don't agree with all his positions. But I sure as hell do agree we need to get out of Iraq and that we need to get our country's balance sheet in order. I really intend to help Ron Paul win. GO RON PAUL!!! GO HP!!! GO KEITH!!!

I just want to see our country reclaim its dignity. Seriously. Enough with the bullshit politics and special interest groups and entitlements and redistribution of wealth. Enough of the stupid war and the waste. Let's bring back integrity, let's bring back intellitude.

"Rudy Giuliani and Duncan Hunter are the big losers in Iowa receiving no delegates at all from the caucus (at the time of this writing 95% of the precincts had reported in). Paul, McCain and Thompson scored a virtual three way tie with Paul getting 2 delegates while the others received 3. Romney and Huckabee take the most with 12 and 17 respectively. Since the candidates need a majority of 2380 delegates to win, the race has only just begun. The two biggest surprises of the day were Ron Paul getting a total of 10% of the vote, not bad for a candidate that most have said is only polling around 3% and Rudy Giuliani who has been polling in the high thirties getting only 4% of the vote. I guess that shows how much polls tell you."

Hey, the official campaign made an ad that didn't suck! I'd give this a 6 out of 10.

if you were Ron Paul, what would your top two demands be?

1) Abolish the IRS and cut all of the socialist handout programs from the federal budget to make up the difference.

2) Abolish the Fed.

Ron Paul is going to sell you out.

Since I learned that he's pro-life I think he's a sellout. A true Constitutionalist would recognize that Roe v. Wade directly violates the 10th Amendment. He sold out to the party's right wing by going pro-life.

Rudy Giuliani and Duncan Hunter are the big losers in Iowa

That's because Giuliani didn't waste his time and money on a state with so few delegates. He's actually the only real winner, having spent his time in real states with lots of delegates while everyone else fought it out in Iowa.

For the dumbasses that have been living under a rock and still have not discovered Ron Paul, here is a recent interview with Bill Moyers:

I support Ron Paul though I don't agree with all of his ideas I agree with the majority and that's good enough, I've even donated to his campaign. However I'm nearly certain he will not be the republican candidate, he just does not strike me as a figure main stream America will understand I admire and respect he has stuck to his guns for years about reducing government but his ideas are too broad and radical (though justified) for America to handle him at this time. The only other candidate I can remotely tolerate is Obama, at least he was against the war from the beginning and his election would improve our standing in the world as it would signify tolerance and progress and yes that would be partially about race but also because he is the most qualified democrat and it would show we saw beyond race.

I don't know how many of you have traveled abroad but Bush has done incredible damage to our reputation. The idiotic way he talks and swaggers. It makes us look arrogant without the intelligence to even back it up.

WOW I'm impressed! They raised Reagan from the dead to do the voice track for that spot...

What is up with this fascination with nutcase Ron Paul?! Ron Paul's candidacy is as bad as Huckabee's, probably worse.

Ron Paul says that he doesn't believe in evolution.

Ron Paul, M.D., does not want the Federal Government to regulate medical quackery.

Congressman Ron Paul and his aides "regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set."

Ron Paul is right about the falling value of the dollar. So what?! Most of Paul's views on science and politics are directly opposed to the reality-based community, of which I would wish to count Keith and HPers as members. At best, Paul is a "useful idiot" for we who care about sound fiscal policy, but his cures are worse than the disease.

A minute or a dime spent on Ron Paul is a minute or a dime wasted.

Stormfront issue has already been debunked. You only show us your ignorance with your attempt to trash a genuine article like Ron Paul.

"Giuliani came in sixth in Iowa even though he held training sessions for caucus participants and spent $300,000 on radio ads and more on direct mail in Iowa."

He also got a lot more time and attention from the MSM. He probably doesn't have the money to push hard in many places.

Next time please provide a hyperlink to a source that debunks claims appearing on the New York Times site.

Glad the Stormfront stuff is bogus.

Ron Paul says that he doesn't believe in evolution.

Ron Paul, M.D., does not want the Federal Government to regulate medical quackery.

Just one of these facts -- evolution denial or an M.D.'s support of medical quackery -- makes Ron Paul a nutbar. At best, Paul is a "useful idiot" for we who care about sound fiscal policy, but his cures are worse than the disease.
