Nice story @ Ron Paul in Dover, NH

I attended the Lincoln-Reagan dinner last night in Dover. I was chatting with Jesse Benton during the VIP cocktail hour about the children of the r3VOLution.

I was telling him about my 8YO daughter's Presidential history report, and how she wished she could have done one on Ron Paul, but she had to settle for Calvin Coolidge. I explained how she enlightened her class about Coolidge's principles and the role of a president- not trying to run people's lives, etc... He said that Dr. Paul would get a kick out of that, and I told him it was in my car.

It was just about time to leave the VIP area and go to our table, but Jesse said he would go and get it to show Dr. Paul. I thought he was joking, but nope. What a kind man, he not only retrieved it from my car and brought it right to Dr. Paul, but he even brought it back to my car!

Dr. Paul did indeed get a kick out of it, and was impressed she was only 8. He looked it over, and seeing no grade on it (I briefly explained they don't give them for presentations)he whipped out his own pen and gave her a grade: A+, ha ha!

She is too excited for words, and will bring it back to class to show her grade. ;) Thank you Jesse and Congressman Paul!

I managed to get the last bit of this on video (dark & shaky, sorry! I didn't want to be rude & shove the camera between us) where he is looking for a grade, and then signs it.


Earlier, at the photo taking event, he signed my son's Manifesto. My son is very happy with that, too.

The Dover GOP put on a very nice event, and the food was not only edible, it was great! I have more video of presenters, Ron Paul's speech, people shouting "Run, Ron, Run!" as he left. Other people have better video of the event, though.

It was a great time, and his speech was different than his usual speech to the college/younger crowds- I'm sure you've all seen it already on the 'tubes. I hope the GOP members, and especially the head of the party here, Jack Kimball, were listening really closely.

Ron has just made a wonderful

impact on your daughter for the rest of her life. Very lucky indeed.

"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

Simply awesome!

This is what I like most about Ron and the people he surrounds himself with.

None of them are plastic. They are the real deal and not afraid to deviate from the program.

And nothing is taboo. Everyone is heard and spoken to.


Very Cool~!!

Very Cool~!!

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

How sweet is that!

How incredibly fortunate you are to be raising such wise children, gives me hope for my grandchildrens future.

Dr Paul is a truly compassionate & caring person. He met my sister out in Texas after the storm and my sister told him I was his biggest fan & had gone to St Paul to see him. He asked her to call me so he could "thank" me (sheesh, I'm the one that is thankful to him). I missed the call but he left a sweet voice mail. He also called my other sister who had gone to the Rally w/me. I love that man.

What a beautiful and touching story.

Ron Paul does seem to have a special place in his heart for children: He's had many of his own, he chose a career path in the medical field to bring thousands safely into the world, and you can see the sparkle in his eye when he talks at colleges.

What a cool grandfather I bet he is!

I was there also

And had a great time. I thought the story of the soldier who wanted his parents to hear Dr. Paul speak was touching. Jack Kimball sounded like a buffoon. During his talk I was wondering what Ron might be thinking. Ron's speech was excellent and received well. He answered a couple of prepared questions at the end, one of which asked if he would be running for president. He answered by saying that to become President one needs to want to have the power to run people's lives and the economy. He also said that to become President one needs to have a fire in their belly and that he has a spark.

It would have been nice to have met any other DPers who were there. I met a couple who invited me to their local meetup group. I will definitely be attending.

I totally agree with you about the food. That fish was outstanding!

Did you see the reactions?

You wrote: "Jack Kimball sounded like a buffoon. During his talk I was wondering what Ron might be thinking."

When he went into the typical rhetoric about "us" pulling together in unanimous support for the candidate THEY choose in order to beat the Dems... I saw at least two dozen people around me shaking their heads. I heard snickers of "McCain" and "Romney" and general disagreement. And these were people around me at the $1500.00 tables!

He's catching on, I'm tellin' ya!

Mmm... baked haddock.

There was definitely some snickering

in the back where I was sitting. What annoyed me the most was the typical us vs them, red team vs blue team rhetoric he was spouting off.

During Ron's speech I was by the front of the stage taking pictures. I observed the crowd's reaction was he was discussing our interventionism. Most were nodding their heads in approval. But there was this one table directly in front of the stage where the people seemed almost annoyed with what he was saying. Did you notice that?

Noticed them

They were the table at front, two over from Ron's, and I believe they were mostly the local GOP, heh heh. But that was, what- 12 people?- out of the ~300 in the room? They were the stuffy folks who shushed (SHHHHH!) when people around them lightly chanted "End the FED!"

I was just so happy to see that the older people there at the VIP tables, mostly registered NH GOP, were agreeing with Ron. Everyone at my table (older than me, around 45-65) was discussing the CFR (!), the FED, Liberty, Federalist papers, Israel lobby, etc...

There were also some low boos/groans when Rep. Guinta's speech was read, LOL. Did you hear that?

You know... I think I'll go ahead and convert & upload my videos of his speech, because the one on YT right now is from the opposite side of the room & you can hear a LOT of crowd chatter on my version.

sounds like a fun time
