Then do something to effect positive change. Electing the same politicians will return the same results. Why don't YOU run for office? BE the change you want to see.

Don't you guys have freedom of speech?
Why would this be banned??

I think it is a good piece of work.

Also want to add....regardless of who you guys "vote" in,you might still hit hard times whether Ron Paul gets in or not.

I dunno.. doesn't this promote the wrong message
It says that even if you do elect Ron Paul that he still won't fix the debt crisis.

That was a great AD to bad no matter what Ron Paul does he can't fix this crap no one can. At least not in a lifetime.

I was originally produced by Citizens Against Government Waste. cagw.org/

Ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed "too controversial" by major networks including ABC, A&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. In 1986, the U.S. national debt was around 2 trillion dollars. Today, it is rapidly approaching 14 trillion dollars. The American Dream is being ripped apart right in front of our eyes, but apparently some of the major networks don't want the American people to really understand what is going on.

The truth is that the ad does not even have anything in it that should be offensive. The commercial is set in the year 2030, and the main character is a Chinese professor that is seen lecturing his students on the fall of great empires. As images of the United States are shown on a screen behind him, the Chinese professor tells his students the following about the behavior of great empires: "They all make the same mistakes. Turning their backs on the principles that made them great. America tried to spend and tax itself out of a great recession. Enormous so-called "stimulus" spending, massive changes to health care, government takeover of private industries, and crushing debt."

Perhaps it is what the Chinese Professor says next that is alarming the big television networks: "Of course, we owned most of their debt, so now they work for us".

Yeah, if you listen to the audio carefully, the speaker never says "Ron Paul", yet it shows it in the subtitles. Also, the editing is noticeable when the guy moves his hand around the Rick Perry video, but you can't notice it unless you pause it. Whoever made this video did not edit it in Windows Movie Maker -- that's for sure.

I think the message they're trying to get across is that this is what could happen if Ron Paul is not elected.

On the flip side, electing Ron Paul can avoid this scenario.

Misleading title. The ad wasn't "banned", it was "borrowed" and edited by some crafty Ron Paul supporters. This is the original ad (produced by Citizens Against Government Waste as iamcreation pointed out):

Would the Chinese really laugh at the dollar becoming toilet paper because that would mean the debt they held was also toilet paper, unless of course they transfered their trillion dollars into gold or some other type of investment.
