In what may be a irony in that I and many other libertarians (including certainly Ron Paul) would defund PBS, a documentary about the 2008 campaign that changed America will be broadcast on Wisconsin Public Television Thursday June 24 at 9 or 930pm CDT.  (Thanks to For Liberty for this info)  I wish I were in the Badger State for that broadcast!  This is a great honor for this film as it was selected from a number of documentaries submitted. 

For Liberty is a documentary (Here’s the trailer) on the 2008 campaign produced and directed by Chris Rye and Corey Kealiher.  I have not seen it (to the best of my knowledge it has never been broadcast in Virginia) yet but I suspect based on the trailer and what I am reading about it it is very good.  Liberty Maven liked it very much! 

Without revealing too many details (I don’t want this to be a spoiler) it covers all of the major grassroots events, efforts, and activists that were the essence of the Ron Paul Revolution. It begins right around the time Ron Paul announced his candidacy and culminates with the Rally for the Republic.

Here’s a plug from the Campaign for Liberty along with the second trailer.  The For Liberty websitereports three nice endorsements:  Thomas Woods (“Knocked it out of the park!”), Doug Wead (“A stunning documentary worthy of Thomas Paine and troublemakers of an era past”), and the Southern Avenger, aka Jack Hunter (“Documents the only 2008 campaign based on actual ideas and real ‘change'”).   

Wisconsin is a great state for Ron Paul libertarians; its history has been condusive to new ideas and antiwar movements.  When people hear the Paul campaign and its promise, it wins people over.  I especially suggest it to tea party activists unsure about the Texas Congressman andf his message.  If you live in Wisconsin, invite your friends over for popcorn and give them hope!  Watch For Liberty on PBS Thursday night.  9 PM CDT.  Be there or be square!

  1. All my readers in Wisconsin (Yes, I see you over there in the Packers t-shirt – I like the Packers too) will have that treat tonight (except maybe for Milwaukee) and remember – The Badger State is a GREAT place for libertarian ideas. They like clean politics and new ideas. Liberty is actually an old idea so foreign to people it seems new! Tell your friends/bring the popcorn and see For Liberty!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
