Haha! "...they aren't as relevant as they think they are!"

Love it! Beautiful speech and great crowd! Such a nice turnout. Looked like beautiful weather too!

Great Speech and that crowd

Great Speech and that crowd makes me happy!

Benton looks like he put on a few pounds since last time lol.

Crossroads

Such a crossroads in our history. The idea that a real constitutionally-minded candidate is running...

And when crowds gather to hear him, the energy pours out, stirring the heart and soul. This is our time. No longer do we have to be told what to believe by a group of self-aggrandizing shills. No longer do we have to accept the pabulum that they ladle over conventional media. They have been by-passed. In spite of the efforts of worn-out demagoguery, the message of Liberty has gone forth and is being heard. The nation is awakening. Thank God that we live in such a time!!!

lighting

Ron Paul should never be standing in the shadows when the cameras are pointed at him. I saw this over and over in '08 and the campaign staff is still making this mistake. If you're going to put him in a dark room or under a dark tent then put some lights on him.

Lighting

I agree 100% you need let his campaign know that, it is small details like that that make a ton of difference.

The only thing thats to big to fail

LIBERTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 Cor 3:12-18

12 Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech — 13 unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. 14 But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. 15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 16 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty . 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Liberty is a spiritual thing and it is powerful. People unveil your face and speak boldly. The world needs to look steadily at the end of what was/is passing away - "Bondage"

Let freedom reign and to God be the Glory!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Military Industrial Complex and The Federal Reserve !

These two entities are really connected in their goals and motives. They both are attempting to ignore and marginalize Ron Paul via the MSM.

There is little we can do on that end except keep pressuring the talking heads via emails and phone calls.

The internet is really the best avenue to wake up the voters. Outside of going door to door or having debate parties,go attend and participate in marches or rallies and utilize props (lawn signs, etc) and bumper stickers.

Ron Paul says 'Spread The Message.' He means talking to your friends and family about message of liberty for starters.

Word of mouth is the best way to beat the MSM. This may take a little time, but we don't have alot of time left in America. The iron curtain is slowly closing and with that our freedom.

I have personally converted no less than 200 people into registering republican to vote for Ron Paul..

I still have much work to do and I plan to step it up which includes becoming a delegate and also donating at least $76 bucks on Saturday.

If you ain't a delegate you ain't squat!, as someone has already said..

Get on it!

God Speed..

Attention Event Staff

Attention Event Staff: seat people behind Ron. From every imaginable camera angle Ron should appear to be surrounded by "the people".

I attempted to bring this to the attention of the 2008 staff, but to no avail. Get some seats in there - some bleacher seats, etc. whatever just stack some heads and bodies behind him. It really does have a "bigger" impact on viewers. Not to mention it makes it more difficult for lame stream media to give Ron the appearance of being a lone voice in an empty room.

I understand the NH camp put this event together with very little preparation. But for future campaign events...

Does anyone else think this is a good idea?

Silly

This particular videographer was in the wrong place, but was he even official? I don't know.

Dr. Paul was surrounded by people -- it was obvious they couldn't fit under the tent. I'm sure the official media got better positions to show the crowd.

As for bleachers, they cost money. Would it be worth it for such an event? Hard to say.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Yes

Another good Idea that goes with the lighting.

YES. This should be a

YES. This should be a requirement for all future events.

It was a great event

but the setup needed tweaking. The food line marched straight thru the middle of the tent, thru the middle of the swarms trying to see Ron. The line should have gone around the perimeter, as there were tables in the back that could no longer see anything once Ron came out.

Great idea, I do think by the

Great idea, I do think by the look of how it goes, he will be surrounded by thousands soon :) so you don't have to worry about that :)

Good job thanks for posting but....

I still can't figure out why the campaign
Doesn't hire someone to shoot all his
Speeches with good quality Audio etc..
I volunteer!

Media coverage

I noticed that there was quite a bit of media coverage. That is great. But I can't help but wonder why main stream media doesn't like Ron Paul. The only thing I can come up with is ratings. Wasn't there a James Bond movie a few years back where some media guy tried to start a war between Great Britan and China for ratings? I think that is the real reason the media ignors Ron Paul. War is good for ratings. Without all of these overseas conflicts what would the media have to talk about? There was a time when war was good for the economy. There is a scene in Schindlers List where he says that he finally succeeded in business because of war. That time has long since passed. It is time to bring our troops home and protect our borders not the boarders in some remote desert on the other side of the globe.

Good thought..but I sincerely

Good thought..but I sincerely doubt it. When RP is President they will have SO much to talk about as the country starts to shift. They RAILED at Reagan for walking out of a nuclear arms talk with Russia. Soon, Russia meekly called him back and agreed to his terms. A real leader will rile up everyone. Oh..there would be PLENTY for them to talk about..heh heh.

ha ha ha...

As an old fart, I am so pleased to see more fellow farts, I think it has been much easier this time around compared to 2008. People are being forced to wake up due to the economy, though I still can't convince some people my age. My aunt is in her mid eighties, my cousin and I talked her into getting a computer last year and she is now fully aware than even her beloved Bush and Cheney are corrupt. As someone said, "Good people have a hard time believing their own government is this bad". The older people who lived through WWII were very invested in that war in one way or another so bringing them around to realizing America's government can be wrong on war issues is still not an easy task but they do seem to be more willing to open their eyes then they were a couple of years ago.

Ron Paul Will Win Texas!!

Gardasill Perry is finished in Texas. Debra Median is furiously campaigning for Dr. Paul. She got 20% of the vote against Perry without any money.

Perry is a stupid puppet. He will say and do whatever he is told. Do we want thr republican version of Barack H. Obama?

No we don't!

We can win New York for sure! Perry and Romney will not pass muster in Texas or New York..

We need to win Florida and California, Texas and New York..

We need delegates in those key states. Go sign up ASAP..!!

That speech is a...

barn burner without question!

I am fired up!

Respectful

These speeches are so inspiring, I used to be like everyone else you see walking around in public looking mad all the time but since I have been watching,listening and reading DR.Paul's Message I find myself being more respectful to others and generally just having a sense of "team" with people I do not even really know and I like it.

Go Ron
2012!!!

What an awesome and inspiring video

to wake up to !

Thanks to the New Hampshire team

for creating such an exciting first day of battle!

The road to NH!

My family is moving to NH on August 30th. Look forward to meeting the Ron Paul group.

wow

what a amazing speech Ron Paul gave i dream about meeting him it was so great i cried as a man he's the Michael Jordan of politics ; )

Has anyone else noticed that there are more "old farts"

in the RP crowds now? I always love to see the crowds. In 2007/2008 it was overwhelmingly the under 35 crowd. I am seeing many more "mature" people that have converted this time around. This is GREAT news for trying to convert other "old farts" to the cause! (and I can say this because.... I are one)

Many of the over 35's

were the ones who were fighting this fight when they were younger. So, we're getting more new recruits in that age group now? That's awesome.

Defend Liberty!

Not quite

I handed out stickers to pretty much everyone there and overwhelmingly the crowd was under 35ish. In fact, lots of them under 25 or so. Met lots of homeschool families too.

hahaha

I was just noticing this too. I think it's great as well. I have always loved watching the crowd when I watch sports games or even political events. Gives me an idea of who we are made of. I know that's just an outward way and a judgmental way of looking at things but when your watching something on tv or on the computer monitor, it's kinda hard to know who they really are personally and have a conversation with to find out haha.
