Dear Liberty Activist,
That's how much of the first hour of tonight's GOP debate was given to Ron Paul. 90 measly seconds out of 3,600 seconds.
The remaining 3,510 seconds were spent with the other major candidates:
** Declaring their desire to start wars in Iran, Pakistan, and Syria;
** Rehashing their support for torture;
** Agreeing that President Obama has the right to unilaterally assassinate an American citizen without a court conviction;
** Explaining their plans to continue nation-building, policing, and occupying countries across the globe.
It literally made me sick watching the mainstream media once again silence the one sane voice in this election. The one dissenter to a decade of unchecked war. The one candidate who stands for true defense and actual constitutional government.
Ron Paul was silenced, in perhaps the most important debate of the cycle.
You have to ask yourself why.
I think I know the answer. Both parties have perpetuated the foreign policy that is bankrupting our nation and tearing apart the world.
Both parties have started wars without proper congressional authorization.
Both parties have fabricated reasons for war.
Both parties' outrageous spending has taken us to the brink of disaster.
And if the other candidates on the stage tonight are to be believed, then there is only one candidate who would break the globalists' stranglehold over our foreign policy, our Treasury, and the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors in the armed forces.
Ron Paul could change history. He could save our great nation from its own devastating policies of the past 10 years.
If his voice could be heard.
The media has once again BLACKED OUT Ron Paul.
Will you let it stand??
After almost two days, our Veterans Day Weekend Money Bomb has raised $758,977.
No doubt, that is a powerful total.
But it is not enough. I have met with our accountants and media team, and we have determined we must raise an additional $500,000 in the next 24 hours to be able to run the ads and mail the letters we need in the next 10 days.
I know $500,000 more is a lot to ask.
But you just saw what we are up against.
The policies of unlimited war, torture, and bankruptcy were given 3,510 seconds to be heard in one televised hour of tonight's foreign policy debate.
Ron Paul was given 90 seconds.
Peace was ignored. A sane national defense policy was shut out.
Rational spending and our Constitution were thrown out the window.
Only you can help make this right.
We can complain all we want, but the reality is this: the other side wins this debate - and their foreign policy carries the day - unless Ron Paul can break through.
As Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton said in a press release issued immediately after the debate, "CBS News, in their arrogance, may think they can choose the next President. Fortunately, the people of Iowa, New Hampshire, and across America get to vote and not the media elites."
But Ron Paul needs you to help him reach those voters and WIN this race.
Can I count on you tonight?
Can Ron count on you over the next 24 hours?
Please help us fight back by clicking HERE right now to donate.
I hope you are as fed up and outraged as I am.
If you are, you will redouble your efforts to help Ron succeed on a night where the establishment did its best to shut out a veteran, a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and the leading spokesman for a strong national defense.
P.S. Ron Paul only received 90 seconds out of an entire televised hour of tonight's foreign policy debate to stand up for his common-sense views that would keep our nation safe and strong.
I'm sick and tired of media elites thinking they can control the election by deciding who the American people get to hear.
Our campaign is ready to strike back by taking Dr. Paul's message directly to the voters, but we need your help immediately to raise $500,000 in the next 24 hours to run more ads and mail more letters setting the record straight.
Please, if you're as angry as I am right now about the media's arrogance, click here to donate right away to the Veterans Day Weekend Money Bomb.
