This one is even better but maybe a little difficult to visualize.

Here's the idea:

First, the music here is essential.

The music is Richard Strauss, Also Sprach Zarathustra Op. 30. It was also used as the main theme for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The first image will be a stop sign from about 20 yards away. With each crescendo you will intercut images of flag draped coffins, war images, etc.

Each new swell the stop sign will get closer and the images will be shown at an increased rate.

There is a clear point in the music when there is a majestic climax.

At this point we will see soldiers coming home, being reunited with their families.

Finally we will see an army of Ron Paul supporters, followed by a single image of Ron Paul.

The final text:

"Be the change you want to see in the world."- Mahatma Gandhi

Followed by- Join the Ron Paul Revolution.

Here is another 30-60 second script

I want this commercial to show that we are all running for president because Ron Paul is a man of the people. This commercial would include no actors. These would be real people representing themselves.

Camera pans in to the center of the crowd and we see Ron Paul standing on a chair or something (we don’t see that). He is elevated in the middle of the crowd. He looks around at the crowd and then at the camera. The crowd continues to look at the camera.
He says:

Ron Paul: I am Ron Paul and I am running for president.

Camera pans back to aerial view of crowd and Ron Paul as we hear:

“Paid for by…”

That also is an excellent idea. Both of these ads are far superior to what the campaign has been running thus far.

Here is the same thing minus tha Gandhi quote which is a bit too long.

This one is even better but maybe a little difficult to visualize.

Here's the idea:

First, the music here is essential.

The music is Richard Strauss, Also Sprach Zarathustra Op. 30. It was also used as the main theme for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.

At this point we will see soldiers coming home, being reunited with their families.

Finally we will see an army of Ron Paul supporters, followed by a single image of Ron Paul.

I agree that the second one is fantastic.

They will both touch on different aspects of what Ron Paul is all about.

Both can be made for very little money and both are based on simple, yet effective concepts.

I hope someone will produce both of them.

Here is the sort of thing I have in mind when I speak of showing families reunited. These are powerful images.

Along the lines of the "Im Ron Paul..." ad...

I wanted to get people saying what they like about liberty and close it with "My Name is ____ ______ and I approve this message"


So for instance, I would say "Taxes are too high because Washington DC wastes so much money. Its time to rethink the IRS. My name is Micah Nelson and I approve this message.

Someone else should say "The constitution keeps our government limited, and Ron Paul defends the constitution. My Name is Chuck Chuckerston, and I approve this message"

someone else would say. "I believe defending this country starts at our border, not Iraq's My name is Betty Betterson, and I approve this message."

and end with Ron Paul saying "There is a revolution in this country, and its not about politics as usual. Freedom is popular, and its catching on. My name is Ron Paul, and I approve this message."

We should have one of these excellent ideas produced, then ante-up and HAVE IT RUN AS A SUPERBOWL COMMERCIAL. The superbowl is February 3rd... That's a way RP could spend some of that money!
