Ron Paul's Ad Men are Bigger Than Yours!

According to Ron Paul's new ad, crushing federal agencies won't be enough in his Presidency - he'll EXPLODE them. Yeah that' right, EXPLODE! And sure your house may burn down from all the flaming debris settling on your roof, but that's YOUR PROBLEM, because President Paul just blew up HUD. And while your trying to scrape together the cash to get a new place, Paul will guarantee you get gouged at the pump AND at the grocer. What's that you say? What about the Dept of Energy? KA-BOOM! Commerce? KA-BLEWIE! Gone, gone. And don't think new governmental PSA's won't have clever graphics and booming narrators, THEY WILL! 'Cause when you vote Paul, you vote T-N-T! BLAM!

  1. I'm not a huge fan of Ron Paul, but could you maybe fill in some blanks. How would getting rid of HUD make my house burn down? How would getting rid of getting rid of the department of energy "guarantee you get gouged at the pumps"? How would getting rid of the department of commerce "guarantee you get gouged at the grocer"?

  2. Danny, we need to get you some benzos man. Dean is obviously writing this piece with quite a bit of tongue-in-cheekiness.

  3. Yep, they're just jokes based on a rudimentary understanding of these agencies.

    Also, how funny is Ron Paul's voice at the end? The booming, truck-selling, manly narrator voice makes his "I approve this message" sound really mousey in contrast.

  7. I don't like question begging either. That was a tongue-in-cheek comment.

  9. Dean, I completely agree. At first I thought this was an onion video riffing on the Dennis Leary truck ads. Then good old RP comes in and I literally lol'd. If he ever gets tired of politics I think he has a career waiting for him as a children's show host Ron Paul's "Little Libertarian Hour"

  10. Ron Paul isn't really all that libertarian, but we smart people do like his moxie.
