Finally, A Media Interview Worth Listening To

In this day and age of shock jock, combative interviewing that serves no purpose but to agitate interviewees and listeners, I found an interview that actually presented meaningful questions, meaningful answers and a spirit of dialog.

Here it is: Ron Paul on CSPAN with Laura Knoy .

Bill Maher found a new hero in Ron Paul. I just found my new hero in Laura Knoy.

Her interview style is relaxed. She doesn't indicate agreement on all points and asks the questions in a respectful manner, giving her subject the opportunity to explain his position without cutting him off or making fun of him. Unlike Pat Gray of KSEV, Houston, who asks questions he already knows the answers to in a ploy to trap his subject, setting them up to ridicule, Knoy extracts well-articulated reasoning from her subject. The listener will come away knowing something more about the interviewee than he did going in.

You can also get the whole interview on . Look for the entry on June 5, 2007.

We need more Laura Knoys and less Pat Grays. Broadcast Journalism majors take note.

Ron Paul Forums

Anyone wishing to discuss and debate Ron Paul's candidacy can go to . I had some fun on the slogans thread under Writing Projects.

My favorite was:

Atlas Shrugged: Who's Ron Paul?
Spartacus: I am Ron Paul!
Rebel Comrade of Spartacus: No, I am Ron Paul!

Ron Paul Audio Archive

Many thanks to Randall who commented on "Neo-Conservatism Is Neither, Part 1." He submitted a blog site that has perhaps the most complete archive of audio files of speeches and interviews of Ron Paul.

I highly recommend listening to them. No one is going to tell you about Ron Paul better than the man himself.

Neo-Conservatism Is Neither, Part 1

This is the first of an 11 part series of blog posts featuring Dr. Ron Paul addressing the U.S. Congress on July 10, 2003. He defines just what Neo-Conservatism is as a political ideology and confirms what I've been thinking. Like the Moral Majority of the late 70's and early 80's, Neo-Conservatism is neither new nor conservative.

This is one of the most statesmanlike addresses I've heard, yet. The amount of detail he gives should alarm anyone who treasures liberty and the concepts of limited government as envisioned by the Founding Fathers of the U.S.

Here's Part 1:

Part 5 is especially revealing. Each part is approximately 5 minutes. If you don't have the time, I suggest skipping to part 5, but watching and listening to all 11 videos will enlighten you tremendously on the subject.

Stop Dreaming and Restore the Republic

I found this video on YouTube from Aravoth to be very moving. It tells you about Ron Paul, where he stands and his record in Congress - all to the tune of Don McClean's Miss American Pie.

Win or lose, Ron Paul is seeding a revolution for human liberty. He is giving American individuals the courage to speak up and claim their dignity. It reminds of Spartacus and the slave revolt.

I am Ron Paul!!!!
