At the intersection of the Internet and politics, presidential candidate Ron Paul’s supporters are rewriting the rules of political campaigns. NOW explores how the Texas congressman and his supporters are using the Internet to attract voters—and massive campaign contributions—from across the political spectrum. Supporters include anti-war progressives, anti-tax libertarians, civil libertarians, and even some white supremacists. The common theme is anger over where the country is heading. “Ron Paul’s campaign is so extraordinary to many of us because even while it was getting massive online traffic, you’d be lucky to get a whisper of his campaign in a lot of media outlets,” said Zephyr Teachout, Howard Dean’s former online organizer and now a Duke University professor.

    A fair documentary about dr. Ron Paul, taking no sides, showing the growth of grassroots movement around him.
    Interesting detail near the end of the documentary – it shows announcement for the Tea Party money bomb in Dec. 16 2007 – which sparked the Tea Party Movement – when it was purely Ron Paul movement and before it became polluted in 2009 by Sarah Palin, FOX and the likes, and their ideas.

    This video attempts to slant against Ron Paul.  Just bringing up the issue of white supremacy is dirty, then they try to make you afraid of less federal government without even letting Mr Paul respond. That is such a dirty propaganda trick, it makes my logical brain scream in pain. Whoever made this, is not on Ron Paul’s side.

    That being said, take the logical parts and go with it.

      I agree completely. There are subtle ways in which negative sounding words are used to describe his supporters, such as “radical”, and “angry”, which are used in a way to make the average Ron Paul supporter seem hyper and aggressive.

    This guy is a lunatic. He wants to destroy the EPA and the TSA ! among other government agencies. He is a dangerous isolationist, only better than the religious right by a short margin.
