Public Policy Polling reports that just days before the Iowa Caucuses there is nearly a dead heat for the front runner position. Republican Presidential hopefuls Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are running neck in neck. The New York Times is reporting that 40% of voters polled said they could still change their minds. Paul is still the front runner in the PPP poll, though, and that should tell both Paul supporters and the nation that political change is literally in the air.
Paul has come a long way from the first days of campaigning, when many political pundits and mainstream news outlets outright ignored him, and many even said he was “un-electable.” Remembering when many said he didn’t have a chance, The Ron Paul Uprising director William Lewis states “To think Ron Paul is unelectable is to not understand the very foundations of this country. People are realizing they have been duped and, because of Paul, we see the political landscape shifting towards the very reasons this country was founded; to escape tyranny in government,”
Lewis, an award-winning independent filmmaker, along with the film’s writer, Debbie Lewis, and the associate producer, Gary Franchi, say the reason behind their recent film is to make people aware of what is going on, expose the egregious media manipulation of facts, the people’s need to see past that manipulation and for the concerned population to take a good hard look at Paul’s actual message.
”If there was ever a man running who was constitutionally minded and represented the people, it’s Paul,” says Franchi. “Paul understands what this country’s framer had in mind, while writing the founding documents for this nation.”
The Ron Paul Uprising’s writer says “Anyone wanting to understand Paul need only listen to what he has to say, without the media spin, of course! Paul’s goals have been clear from the beginning, ‘shrink the size of government, balance our budget, pay the bills, have sound money and live within our means and mind our own business.’”
The film covers more than just Ron Paul. It takes a hard look at what the US population searches for in and how it chooses a candidate to support, the Obama presidency, the importance of considering what the Constitutionally Mandated Oath of Office in our decision, media bias and manipulation and even Vote Fraud. Everyone can learn something from this new Lewis/Franchi installment. Along with the current trailer, the film’s official website has available for download a vote comparison for Paul, Obama, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum, as well as a 2 page tri-fold handout, so people can get the information they need to make an informed decision.
