This is a take-off on a commercial produced last November by Citizens Against Government Waste. It was so controversial that major networks would not air it. In this version, Congressman Ron Paul is inserted. It is totally unofficial and not produced by the Paul campaign, but it is just as powerful as the original version. I thought this would be fun to watch in now that the second Republican debate is behind us.
Here’s part of the write-up on the original commercial: “A new television ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed “too controversial” by major networks including ABC, A and E and The History Channel and will not be shown on those channels. The commercial is a homage to a 1986 ad that was entitled “The Deficit Trials” that was also banned by the major networks. Apparently telling the truth about the national debt is a little too “hot” for the major networks to handle. But perhaps it is time to tell the American people the truth.”
