View Full Version : 30 Minute Infomercial

We need a grassroots effort, utilizing the available grassroots talent and expertise to write, produce, record, edit, and market a 30 minute infomercial of Dr. Paul discussing the pressing issues facing voters in this election. I think that somewhere, in his mass of supporters and volunteers that we could creat such a production for mere pennies with our only major expense being airtime. And we might even find someone among us who could help with that. Lets face it .... MSM is not gonna roll over just because we flood their websites with e-mails (of any knid), phone calls and letters. The Republican Party is not gonna just up and change their mind about letting Dr. Paul walk away as its 2008 presidential nominee. It just ain't gonna happen. At least not without one hell of a fight!

The Blimp! Man it's gonna be fantastic for those on the East Coast and Florida, but lets face it .... there's an awful lot of eligible voters between the east coast and the west coast who will never see it except on the news and that's only provided we can shame into reporting it! And then there's the "Tea Party" whew, that's gonna be huge in just about every city on the map with a harbor or a port... but come on ... there's an awful lot of eligible voters out there who've never seen an ocean, much less a harbor! The "Money Bombs" ... wow! What a great idea those were! But guess what ???... they don't really win anybody over or answer peoples questions.

If Dr. Paul did an 30 minute infomercial with a well known, like minded personality as the moderator it could be marketed in specifically targeted markets, when needed. Cable air time is not that expensive as compared to Network TV. In addition DVD's of any givin length could be mastered from it for distribution to the target markets as handouts in preceeding primaries. And generally speaking, cable channels give three to four times the amount of airplay you pay for just to fill their timeslots, whether in primetime or late night.

Anybody have any comments or suggestions on this? Whaddayathink?

We have a 1 hour DVD project. When I first saw this idea I thought it would be good too but sending out a bunch of DVD I think would be a better idea for the time left and whatnot. We could even try and put that on the tv, it could likely be edited to 1 hour long.

Just donate to that.

Yeah, prime-time infomercials are very expensive. Why feed the mainstream media when we could use that money to burn & mail out 30,000,000 DVD's and probably get more viewers than an infomercial, as well as providing many times more content. Plus the people who like it will be able to pass the DVD to their friends and family!

Hopefully after the tea party that HQ will be airing many infomercials, they helped Ross Perot. Funny how they both have the same initials, RP.

I sent this idea to the campaign three months ago.

1/2 hour infomercial on the constitution (Where we have strayed from it and what impact that is having) (The need for congress to declare or not declare war etc.)
1/2 hour on monetary policy (gold standard, fiat currency, national debt, etc.)
