Ron Paul: Conviction, Not Compromise!

Ron Paul’s First 2012 TV Ad

Are you ready to watch Ron Paul’s much-anticipated first TV ad for the 2012 primaries?

Released earlier today, the 65-second spot is dedicated to Ron Paul’s principled stance on the debt ceiling controversy. As we all know, only Ron Paul will not compromise when it comes to cutting spending and balancing the budget!

Watch the ad now:

In the 1980s they did it to Reagan – a debt ceiling compromise, Democrats promising spending cuts, but delivering only tax hikes. The 1990s brought more compromises, more broken promises and more new taxes. This August, the next chapter will be written, a defining moment. $14 trillion in debt, millions unemployed, the dollar in decline. We know where they stand. But will our party’s leaders repeat the mistakes of the past? Will they choose compromise or conviction? One candidate has always been true, Ron Paul. Cut spending, balance the budget, no deals. Standing up to the Washington machine, guided by principle. Restore America now.

spooniron:

Best ad EVER!! GO, GO, GO, Dr. NO!!! Ron Paul 2012! I am a BLUE REPUBLICAN!!!!

Liberty4Ever:

Great ad. Very topical, as it leverages TEA Party disgust over Boehner and McConnell rolling over to let Obama raise the debt ceiling so they can hopefully blame the Democrats in the fall. Americans know we’re WAY beyond playing the blame game, and it’s long past time to do something. They’re finally figuring out the fact that the GOP establishment differs from the Democratic establishment in marketing only. They’re both the party of big government. Ron Paul 2012!

wredlich:

Outstanding! It’s great and it’s much more polished than 2008.

nalejbank:

Very exciting ad. Makes the right point that compromise with reducing the increases only yields more than what should be and feeds the big government machine with our labors and our children’s future. What part of CUT don’t you understand? We cannot have less government while spending ever more! Chop spending to equal revenues, end of story.
Great ad – well done – share with everyone in your email address book!!! Let’s go viral !!!

tangledweb79:

That was the best campaign commerical I have ever seen. First class all the way.

ancientwisdom2012:

conviction is based on fundamental principles that do not change when circumstances change, because they are always valid (like freedom and rights). (based in courage)
compromise (of principles), is sophistry, which changes to suit an agenda and in order to deceive and manipulate. (based in fear and a reactionary, irrational nature)(giving up freedom for the illusory “security”…)

Robert M.:

Ron Paul is vilified by Republicans and Democrats, marginalized by the news media and a clear and present danger to the global elite.

Furthermore, he is the ONLY Presidential Candidate with the historical conviction, unwavering values and powerful intellect that can provide true leadership in our country’s time of need.

He’s more than a mere candidate, he is an idea whose time has come!

By way of comparison, here’s a quick flashback to Ron Paul’s first TV ad back from the 2008 election season.

The ostensibly low-budget homage to Ron Paul became an online sensation and an instant classic with grassroots supporters, but it did not have much of an impact on New Hampshire voters.

    This is by far the best campaign ad I have seen since Ronald Reagan ran for President.

    It’s a decent ad, yes, exposes some truths about the economy. It doesn’t mindlessly go into GWARRRGH BLAME THE DEMOCRATS that is so endemic to most Republican political ads. It does have snazzy graphics. It doesn’t really delve into Rep. Paul’s real driving force though, the Constitution — I think other, later ads may need to highlight this.

    I don’t even want to think of our government without Ron Paul in it to fight for us. We must do all we can to make him president in 2012.

    That looked good. I don’t understand tho how less regulation on banks and corps is good…. these bstrds are already running a muck. I know he would end to big to fail, but it sounds like like he would support Enron accounting and wild leverage games. I don’t trust anyone who thinks of himself as a “Ayn Rand hero”

    We have compromised to the point of total collapse. Principle and truth. No compromise with evil. When good compromises with evil evils wins. When evil compromises with good evil wins. No compromise.
