Ron Paul Fans Making CPAC Their Own

Salon.com:

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), the libertarian-leaning 2008 presidential candidate and father of freshman senator Rand Paul, is expected to make a strong showing in the annual CPAC straw poll Saturday. Paul, in fact, won the straw poll last year with a decisive 31 percent; establishment man Mitt Romney was second with 22 percent.

The Paul supporters are out in force again this year; they're a very visible presence at the conference handing out literature about "unmasking the Federal Reserve," repealing the Patriot Act, and so on. They already made headlines Thursday when they heckled Dick Cheney. And a group associated with Paul reportedly bought 1,000 tickets for supporters, ensuring a strong performance in the straw poll.

Bump: With Ron Paul Supporters Like This, We Will Win!

Very nice interview.
Appreciated.

My gosh. Accurate, well articulated & pleasant.

"Ron Paul" advocates play "Pleasant Street..." Up, the stage is on schedule. Got may bags. The stage is starting to roll... I better run along now.

"Accurate, well articulated, and pleasant."

...As are 95% of the people who support him.

Is The CFL Site Down ? I Can't Ge In..

Does Anyone Know If The CFL Site Is Down ?

I can't get to Campaign for Liberty site either.

And this site was down last night as well.

I thought it was a Republican National Committee dirty trick.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

That's my homey

Sean Ryan from Boston! Yeah baby! Great interview!

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sean

and many other great people at CPAC. He did an excellent job in this interview!

My Homey too.

Sean is soooo articulate and well mannered.
He is a gentlemen, a scholar and an exemplary patriot.
Sean has made a run for Boston city council and will surely win in the next election.
Great to see salon so interested in the Paul movement.

Here's one from salon a few months ago about the money bombs and the origin of the tea party's.

Please tell him how impressive he is.

I thought he was a really excellent spokesperson.

Well, I guess

the other groups should have purchased more tickets.
We get to hear them all.

What a crock.

All the speakers pac's bought blocks of tickets and resold them or gave them away. C4L SOLD them and you still had to pay for transportation, they just got a group discount. There is a rumor Romney has paid for them out of hand and some say paid for transportation, as well.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

bump

Thanks Bobby!
