View Full Version : Can Word of Mouse Marketing Get Ron Paul Elected?

If you are interested in politics this article by Gary North is well worth the time it takes to read.


Here’s a quote from it: “Ron Paul’s campaign indicates that Establishment influence is waning where it counts most in the long run: the flow of information. The evidence for this is the flow of money: $4 million in one day. That got the attention of the gatekeepers. Money talks. In their world, it talks louder than anything except votes.”

Here’s another: "Will the 1% on top be able to protect today’s semi-monopolistic positions of the 4% who shape the thinking of the 20% who decide on behalf of the 80% who officially have the votes, but who rarely show up on election day?"

About a month ago I watched the movie “Luther” and noticed that it was the power of the printing press in 1517 that really caused his revolution in upsetting the Roman Catholic Church’s power.

North's article also covers that.

Quote “Consider the Internet. The denizens of the World Wide Web have more money than the typical voter. They have more formal education. They also have skills in navigating the Web. They have Google. They have e-mail. They are international. These people are on the cutting edge of social change. In the way that literate people were on the cutting edge in 1517, so are people who use the Internet as their primary source of information.”
