Ed Griffin in the Age of the Sound Byte

Ed Griffin played warm-up speaker before Ron Paul at the Ron Paul Rally in Mountain View, CA on July 14. Not accustomed to giving 10 minute speeches, he delivered his message in less than 10 minutes. His core message: "Ron Paul is the only candidate who can win for America" took all of 3.2 seconds.

Here's the whole speech:

I always learn something listening to Ed Griffin. He spoke about how voters tend to base their vote on who they believe can win the election, not unlike betting on a football game. If you go about it that, he contends, you may win the bet, but you'll also likely lose your freedoms.

He also talked about Carroll Quigley, professor at Georgetown University, who had Bill Clinton as a student. Very interesting stuff here.
