Establishment politicians, including Barack Obama, either fail to grasp or outright ignore the crushing impact of U.S. militarism.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s heralded 2009 “Imagine” foreign policy speech is the inspiration for a new web ad released Thursday by Revolution PAC. The 3-minute video reinforces the unintended consequences – increased foreign aggression and debilitating national debt – reaped by overseas adventurism.

The ad is a direct hit to President Obama, who reneged on his 2008 campaign promise to bring the troops home and end the now decade-long War on Terror.

“Establishment politicians, including Barack Obama, either fail to grasp or outright ignore the crushing impact of U.S. militarism,” explains Revolution PAC Advisory Board member Gary Franchi. “For 30 years, Ron Paul has stood firm in backing a constitutional foreign policy based on friendship and trade with other nations and a strong defense of our own borders. Tangible support of Dr. Paul by the troops themselves more than proves his position.”

Ron Paul is favored for president by the military rank-and-file, receiving the most donations from all military branches in second quarter 2011 fund-raising.

Partial narrative from the ad:

“The reality is that our military presence on foreign soil is as offensive to the people who live there as armed Chinese troops would be if they were stationed in Texas. Shutting down military bases and ceasing to deal with other nations with threats and violence is not isolationism. It is the opposite. Opening ourselves up to friendship, honest trade and diplomacy is the foreign policy of peace and prosperity.”

Last week’s Harris Poll revealed that Ron Paul would prevail over Barack Obama 51 percent to 49 percent in a general election race. Paul stands at 12 percent nationwide.

Revolution PAC is bolstering Ron Paul’s consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising campaigns complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Proceeds will support the airing of game-changing commercials, like “Plastic Men,” in the months to come. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations can be made at
