Jon Huntsman’s Values : Supporter Ad or Hit Piece?


A newly released ad by a Ron Paul ‘supporter’ is garnering much negative attention.

The video shows Jon Huntsman speaking Chinese, dressed up as Mao, and a host of other negative and illogical things.

The uploader of the video is ‘NHLiberty4Paul,’ but I truly do question whether or not they are actually a Paul supporter. The video was uploaded on January 4th and has 29 likes to 1,090 despite a flood of Paul supporters demanding it be taken down in the comment section. Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton has also come out and stated, “The video is disgusting. Whoever put it up should remove it immediately.” However, the video still remains up.

I have serious doubts this video is the work of a Ron Paul supporter. Why would they leave it up despite such a negative reaction? Why is the actual video so illogical and racially charged? Why is it this person has only uploaded this one video? Why ignore Paul’s camp when they asked for this video to be taken down? What exactly would the purpose of the video if it is actually the work of a Ron Paul supporter? The video was quickly linked to Huntsman’s webpage, and within a few hours had Huntsman’s daughters talking about it throughout the media.

I would find it very believable and likely this act is intended to smear Paul and shed a bad light on his supporters (whom are often mocked and labelled as ‘Paulbots’ on social media). This video also has a high probability of being the direct work of Jon Huntsman’s camp.

There remain questions concerning this video, and I will update if I come across anything.

Update: the video has been uploaded again. This time on the account ‘NH4Santorum.’ This, imo, makes it even more clear this isn’t the work of a Paul supporter. The link for the channel is ‘http://www.youtube.com/user/NH4Santorum‘.

Another profile has uploaded the video, this time under a Mitt Romney username.

This event has become an obvious fraud.

Ron Paul Finishing in Third Place


I was hoping for atleast a second place finish, but had some hope for a first place performance. I didn’t pay attention for a few days and then ‘bam’ Santorum. With Mitt sitting comfortably as he has the entire primary process and Paul conducting his usual grassroots, as I was watching on CNN, suddenly Santorum was boasting huge numbers, and I realized what missing a few days can do.

Not to jab Santorum’s campaign – he had little money but traveled lots – but one cannot discount the hype unleashed by the media. For a long time it was a two man race between Paul and Romney, so it wasn’t surprising for a third to be ‘placed’ in.

Santorum boasts a record of voting for the debt ceiling numerous times and being a heavy supporter of earmarks. His foreign policy is quite harsh, with Iran in his sights, and he is VERY socially conservative. When guests on the show were being asked why they supported him, they started rambling about family values and not being able to say much else.

Why do I wish Paul had won? Paul is the most fiscal conservative of the group. He realizes that not only the state is in over 15 trillion of debt, but that this money is owed by the citizens of America. He is much more socially liberal than his other rivals also. He doesn’t believe in a constitutional ban on gay marriage and is against the war on drugs. Other topics that are more socially liberal are not government by Paul’s personal beliefs. He believes in strict adherence to the constitution and liberty, and has no desire to dictate and control the lives of Americans with big government. It is costly, and along with the war on drugs, foreign aid, foreign wars, the military budget, the American empire, the nation will only be brought deeper.

He has stood against the Patriot Act and the TSA, and recognized the dangers of the newly passed NDAA, singed by Obama after he claimed he would veto.

Hope isn’t lost yet though. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if Santorum surges stops and he begins dropping and the other candidates stay low or begin slowly dropping out expect for Huntsman (has campaigned a lot in NH). Paul maintained 20% while experiencing a harsh period of hazing and questioning over racist newsletters. However, this event struck a huge blow as I and many supporters were hoping for atleast a second place finish. New Hampshire will be interesting, and I’m curious to see how Paul campaigns and what ads get released and whom their aimed at (Santorums first potential moment to be in the crosshairs).

Some videos of the man who should have won:
