Libertarian Party: War Breeds War

30 second youtube spot at the top of today. It’s standard broadcast ad length, but I’m not aware of any plans to buy time on broadcast TV.

    The national LP has accepted our video as a gift from the Wrights 2012 staff. A blog post with more information will be posted at later today.

    The main goal of the Wrights campaign was to make sure that the LP presidential nominee would have a strong anti-war message.

    Both the Johnson campaign and the national LP appear to be committed to the message of peace.

    I believe Lee Wrights has had some influence on both…

    Give me a call if you get a chance 415-690-6352

    “… I’m not aware of any plans to buy time on broadcast TV.”

    I’d hope there isn’t, save for some massive influx of money that there isn’t any other use for.

    Available for embedding in websites, circulating via social media, and getting press attention for these messages, seem to be (and ought to be) the goals for these videos.

    Are you saying that based on this particular ad, or any ad in general?

    I’m a professional audio engineer that specializes in mastering – so couldn’t help but notice that the sound on this video (and on the other ones produced by the “Stop All Wars” team) could use some definite cleaning up to make it sound more pro. I would be glad to do this free of charge. If the producers of these videos are on here – you can reach me at if you are interested in making this happen.

    It’s a nice video, but the audio quality was really poor.

    TH @ 1: I do think that Lee’s candidacy definitely helped spread the simple message of PEACE, and that it is a very important issue to many, if not most, Libertarians. Thanks again to both of you.

    Sounds fine to me, but I have crappy speakers.

    The video looks very good and the message is excellent.

    @3 these 3-minute youtubes are just preaching to the choir. Broadcast tv reaches potential new voters.

    It’s 30 seconds.

    Yes… coffee deficit…. so this is one that should be on TV.

    And it looks better than the 3-minute “ad” With The Schizo Capitalization Produced By the Official Campaign.

    coffee deficit

    A crushing mountain of coffee debt that has now exceeded global coffee production 🙂
