Boo Newt

Since Newt wants audience participation so much, I would boo him.... but not too much or you might be asked to leave.

Chant While Your There

President Paul LOUDLY!

Live Free or Die



He's doing that

when they talk about 3rd party and all that. It's an obnoxious question because it's a way of saying "you can't win" to his face. He also does it over the question of whether he'll support the Republican nominee- they are twisting having a principled stance into something icky. He's making the best of it, not just harping on trying to convert them out of thin air.

Defend Liberty!

you know i agree

Ron needs to stop making it look like he is trying to change these others to come over this his(our) side on these issues.
The fact is - they won't ever. Any thing that they do sound like they have is strictly politics trying to get some votes (which they never will) and by the time they would get elected it would all fall to the wayside. Just stand alone which is the reality - it is your message against them - no one cares if they pretend to agree with a portion of it. Call them out - they are the status quo (remember) Maybe they should even know that they shouldn't worry about you running third party to take away votes ... if they all don't support Ron Paul the votes will be taken away from them because we will not vote for them - and we don't need Ron Paul to suggest it or anyone else.

He needs to

Larry Mcdonold their ASS.

Something like:

Ladies and gentleman of America, these stooges on stage all work for the same globalist corporate interests that have purposefully destroyed the Constituiton for their own end game.

It all starts with the Federal Reserve...

And go on from there..

When Dr. Paul KNOWS Mitt or Grinch or Santy are lying

he needs/must CALL THEM ON THE CARPET~~~and INTERRUPT, at all costs!!

Dr. Paul can also say direct to Mitt/Newt when they start dominating the time with each other~~~

"Ok, guys, enough is ENOUGH. I know what you're doing. You're dominating the time on this stage, and you the Media are enabling this to happen, so you can manipulate the minds of the American people! So, I'm going to start interrupting regardless. Now, what's important is~~~~"

these 3 Stooges

Dr Paul Should DEMAND equal time

I bet you they will allow Dr. Paul between 8 and 12% speaking time.
Ron should just take control & start talking about the Fed, the TSA, illegal wars, and the Constitutional Rule of Law.
Even if he has to eat a moderators lunch.
Maybe even make some headlines.
Prove to the sheeple and the Mud Sling Media that he IS a fighter and the one who can take control.

I am so sick of the Newt Rmoney show.

Ron Paul needs to................

Ron Paul needs to get crazy on these fools and TAKE THE GLOVES OFF! TIME TO EXPOSE THESE GUYS! I love his message and I love his consistency. But he needs to take a simpler, more confident, and more attacking message. This is a debate where applause is allowed. People are listening! He needs to STRIKE NOW!!! I have been waiting for him to EXPOSE these guys for 10 debates now. Time to re-group and adjust the tactics.... PLEASE GO AFTER THE ESTABLISHMENT!!!! PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH!!!

We all know what a few great debates can do to voters! They will follow.....

I agree. Unless Ron can

I agree. Unless Ron can muster some serious attack time, he will sit at the back of the bus for the rest of this season. Time to unleash HELL on these guys, Ron.

Sign waving and debate watching party

Pre debate welcome Ron Paul and the attendees 5:30 to 7:30 at the Kernan Blvd. entrance to UNF and at the 9A entrance to UNF Signs and shirts will be available or bring your own!

Debate watching party 7:30 to 11PM at the Blackfinn American Grille Saloon and Patio (Town Center) 4840 Big Island Drive. Jacksonville Fl. 32226

Post debate 11PM to close. No guarantees, but there is a very good chance Ron Paul will be stopping by!!!

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

Is there a possibility that Blackfinn reaches capacity?

Im driving up from miami, and I think ill be stopping there, are their chances this place will reach capacity and turn people away?

Linda Cross's picture

I hope we reach capacity :)

the notice said that they had reserved the Saloon and patio for the event, I haven't been there so I don't know how big it is. I suppose the organizers will judge from the sign waving if they need more capacity. Glad you are coming, have fun!

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

Thank You

I would've missed it if not for your posting.
Thanks Again!
