  1. #1

    Post Where the campaign has been spending YOUR money.

    OKay all you official campaign haters...and those of you who may just be curious...this is where a big chunk of all that money is going:

    http://www.broadcastingcable.com/art...dustryid=47172

    Republicans reappear in the No. 7 spot with Rep. Ron Paul (Texas), who raised a bunch of money online, at 1,454, with the majority of those radio (909).

    almost 1,500 ad spots the person beating him on the republican side is Willard-money bags-romney.

    if you read the entire article at the end of it they say that Huckabee was absent from the list because he didnt start advertising until Nov. 26th.

    His surge started before he even started advertising, how is that even possible?

    Truck drivers, workers on the way to construction sites, people on the way to lunch, people driving to work and from work.

    There are always people listening.

    no I think radio is good, because most people only listen to radio in the car, and then you are a captive audience. Most people just leave their TV on and have come immune to ads running after their programs. People are programmed to stop listening after their TV show is over.

    For radio, it is different cause you cannot tell when it is an ad or not... so you listen..

    Radio is absolutely the smartest place they could spend this money. You clearly have no understanding of what it is that you're talking about.

    Where the hell are you from?

    Talk Radio is more powerful here than television when it comes to conservative politics. about 10-12 million people will vote in the Republican Primary; A vast majority of them listen to talk radio.

    Most of the people that would be Ron Paul supports rarely listen to the radio. He has a younger crowd and they listen to their Ipods not talk AM radio.

    It seems he has a good balance of radio and TV, so I see absolutely no problem here. Radio is used by many office workers getting through the day, truck drivers, commuters, etc. You'd be surprised where it crops up when one refers to age demographics over 25 years of age.

    yes but he is also reaching out to older conservative republicans. Yes they are still out there they just haven't heard his message. Believe me, my parents are conservative republicans from the day when ron paul wouldn't have sounded ratical. They would have never heard of him if it wheren't for me. He is trying to get the word out to these types of people.

    And they dont vote in the REPUBLICAN Primary. We cannot win this with support of Independents. We need, no wait; We HAVE to have the support of Conservatives.

    Also remember 1 vote by a perennial Republican Primary voter is worth the same as 2 votes of Independents who would not be voting in the primary if not for Paul. Its quite simple math. One vote for Paul is one vote someone else does not get.

    There's no doubt that Ron Paul has a lot of young supporters who have no grasp on the rest of society (as witness by the ignorant outrage here by the kids on the campaign's use of radio). Young people are great, but it's sucicide politically to bank on young people. History has proven this again and again. You have to go after proven voters, eventually, and the way to do this is radio.

    Gee, maybe when you're trying to win an election you might want to reach out to a broader base of people who don't use the internet or listen to Ipods. We want to advertise to everybody. The internet has captured a lot of the young people. Radio is a great way to reach others and we need them to win this election. How do you know people who listen to radio won't support Ron Paul? You don't.
    "Instead of the “end of history,” we are now experiencing the end of a vocal limited-government movement in our nation’s capital. While most conservatives no longer defend balanced budgets and reduced spending, most liberals have grown lazy in defending civil liberties and now are approving wars that we initiate. The so-called “third way” has arrived and, sadly, it has taken the worst of what the conservatives and liberals have to offer." -Ron Paul

    I never said that he cant get any supporters though the radio, my point is he should mix it up with TV and not go all radio to get in touch with a young audience.

    Plus you can't tivo radio. I know in the two years since I've had one, I've only ever seen a handful of commercials.

    Radio is a voters medium... Period.

    If you signalled any outrage over this, you are an out of touch idiot who needs to shut up and learn. I get so frustrated listen to a bunch of know it alls act like Digg and MTV is the end all of campaigning...

  22. #19


    Yeah, I know... he beat me to it... Me and rs3515 planned a mass mailing for Ron Paul. We gathered 120,000 emails of pastors in the key states, and we just recently sent it out. Hopefully it works, but Huck beat us to it..

    I does not matter if anyone thinks radio won't turn out many votes. Without support of talk radio listeners you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT win the REPUBLICAN nomination. It is plain and simple truth.

    We actually NEED radio ads. I mostly listen to radio, as I no longer watch TV news (mainly because I no longer have the channels, but also because it's completely pathetic--radio is pathetic too, but much less so). So as I listen to radio, Ron Paul never, ever comes up! So obviously, there is a an untapped market there, people who have never heard of Ron Paul, or know very little of him. And these people usually care about the issues, especially considering they're not being hypnotized [hyperbole] by the boob toob, as they can only listen. I don't know if you know this or not, but Ron Paul is still completely uknown. Only 51% of ALL voters know about him. So anything that has to do with politics, economy, civics etc. is good, whether it be TV or radio. Ron Paul's radio ads have been much better than his TV ads. I would agree though, that HQ NEEDS TO SERIOUSLY HIRE PROFESSIONALS TO MAKE GOOD TV ADS.

    That was my point. You're welcome.

    This broad statement based on no facts. How many of these ipod people need to be converted? Can RP's message be beamed into these things?

    Talk radio is a powerful medium with many listeners who have not heard of ron paul. Talk radio shapes minds and political leanings and syndicated shows reach many ears. RP is being minimalized, bashed or ridiculed on the airwaves. That needs to change. TV is expensive and not as effective as radio period.

    Even with the internet, radio is the most listened to medium in existence, AM radio in particular.

    Old Romney wants to be prez pur-T bad... good thing Ron Paul's gonna pwn him.


  31. #27
    I can tell you this, my radio in my car doesn’t even have an AM antenna hooked up. Between my mp3 cd playing car stereo, and my mp3 phone plugged into its Aux input, I hardly ever listen to regular radio. And when I am listening to regular radio I change the channel when a commercial comes on.

    YOU may not, but a lot of people do. In fact, this was Buchanan's suggestion to him, was to advertise one heck of a lot on radio.

    I personally am very glad he is taking good advantage of this medium.

    For better or for worse, people who vote disproportionately more than the general population.
    My review of the For Liberty documentary:

    (please Digg and post comments on the HuffPost site)

    "This political train-wreck Republicans face can largely be traced to Bush’s philosophical metamorphosis from a traditional, non-interventionist conservative to the neoconservatives’ exemplar of a 'War President', and his positioning of the Republicans as the 'War Party'."
