Raleigh, NC Packs nearly 1500 in Standing Room only Dr. Paul visit!

Went to the Raleigh, NC event tonight, the house was PACKED! Ron gave a great delivery and it was nice to see so many young people in the crowd.

Ron said that NC State had collected over 2200 signatures requesting him to come out!

Right after the event, Ron shook hands, took pics and then did a LIVE spot with the Judge on Fox

Great work by the NCSU Chapter of YAL

It was an awesome event. It was great to meet Dr. Paul in person and chat with him a bit before the speech! No local news teams were there despite our tweeting & informing them of this historic event. The r3VOLution is still not being televised! We'll just have to sneak it by the MSM.

Missed opportunity at a great event-- Ron Paul at NC State

I was there, and I wondered how many Daily Paulers there were in the audience. It started me thinking, and I had an idea. I just wish I had thought of it sooner! In our chairs there were some sheets of literature, a card from YAL and a notice of an April Fools Day Moneybomb for Glenn Bradley, Ron Pauler elected to the State House in NC--AKA Gunny, who gave the introductory speed last night (it's a long way from Camp Iduhapi, Gunny--I am so proud of you!) But back to what I wish I had thought of in time--it would have so great and so relatively easy to print out sheets with the simple message "DailyPaul.com" and placed them in all the seats. I gathered from the comments of some who were seated near me that they were new to the idea of Ron Paul, and while they were positive in their reactions, they were still learning about him and the philosophy of liberty. If the opportunity comes my way again, I'll try to be ready. I offer this in case such an opportunity comes to any of you and you would like to be more prepared than I was.

Un-electable...

....my arse.

Fantastic! The 'Randy's Right' link has great video and pictures

and shows the back of the crowd while the freedomwatch interview was going on. No wonder Ron couldn't hear the first question! Watching freedomwatch you could only see a few people behind Ron with a sign. I wish they had panned the crowd with the camera.

Gunny's speech introducing Ron is also on that link (Gunny is a Ron Paul Forums member who was completely apathetic before Ron's last run, but registered, became active, and recently ran for and won a state house seat in NC. He passed his speech around the forum before he gave it, for editing. He really is one of us.) THAT is the kind of impact Ron has on people. It isn't just earning their vote, it is changing their own impulses towards activism.

excellent.

excellent.

The Crowd Size Exceeded Expectations...

The event started several minutes late because more chairs had to be set up to accomodate people. Doors were eventually closed because of the fire code. Many people were left in the hallway and denied entry. Just down the road is the state GOP headquarters. I talked to the NC Chapter coordinator of Campaign for Liberty who shared with me that he contacted the GOP Chairman, Robin Hayes, to invite hm to come to the event. Among various reasons, he felt it was important that Mr. Hayes see the numbers that Dr. Paul can draw with his message. Reluctantly, he showed up.

HAH!

I'd have liked to have heard his comments, particularly as this was more people than Gingrich had pulled in just a short while before!

Do you have any idea what his reaction was?

Political Bumper Stickers

The man for 2012 election. I saw the bumper stickers about Ron Paul, and ordered exact one through www.customizedstickers.com . I will share once it will be back from production.

Go Ron Paul

I only see a generic home page

One of the most endearing things about Ron Paul,

if you build it he will come.

I saw the spot on Freedom Watch.. every one of you were quiet as a mouse while Ron was speaking, very impressive =D

Thanks for posting!

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

Another is how he inspires others to get out and 'do something'

about the problems! He doesn't just inspire people to vote and forget about it until the next election.

Just Wondering

This is outstanding, really nice to see. Would Baseball Mitt or Huckleberry Finn have drawn so many, so early?

ecorob's picture

mitt and finn...

can't afford to pay that many staffers!

they will see these numbers and they will sit back and wait...
wait...
wait...

because they can't compete with this and, as they wait, a human tsunami builds up and pours across the country

I remember going to a Ron Paul rally back in 2007 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL... There was only like 80 people there...

It would be much much bigger today.
