Question...Has This Ever Happened Before?

I am thinking this perhaps is ..unprecedented in many ways. Is there excellent filming lined up? I mean, this is history...and we will all be experiencing it as well.

Perhaps it has been written elsewhere, but I hope we can know the exact time that the recognition of those who have fallen takes place and the estimated number of seconds so, in our own way, we too can participate WITH you...in appreciation and in *agreement*. Perhaps there will be live video streams?

Have 1000 active military and veterans ever done this before? Certainly they have never done it from the positive...the affirmative...in support of a Presidential candidate and his foreign policy. Protests are just against. This is an affirmation as well as a protest. It is against what has been and for what will be.

Just think...1,000 actives and veterans, xxxxxxx fallen military.....families and supporters...EVERYONE for Ron Paul
...all in synch on Monday. How much power could there be in that?

And then from my spiritual side (take it or leave it ) I believe there will be a host of angels there as well. Why? Because there could never be anything more right...and more critically timely given the world arena.

fonta

It is only powerful if

we support our troops now by helping them get to the venue (carpool, a room at your local inn)...get the information to them...go to the event showing massive support. Perhaps the showing in Vancouver has flipped a righteous switch. East Coast show the world your true colors.

Hopefully

I am looking forward to this event and I hope there is filming too. It is almost guaranteed that there won't be any coverage on the Australian media.

just booked my flight

And travel accommodations. This is going to be a great extended weekend.

This is the first time I wished I was a vet

Hope we get some good youtube footage. GL Kokesh.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

Wonder if the lsm will even

Wonder if the lsm will even cover this!

Hate to be the guy to bring this up....

but this concerns me a little.

Now I'm all for civil disobedience, but id hate to see any of you get into hot water or GET the campaign into hot water. make sure to keep it separate from the official campaign as much as possible if funds are involved. (its the only thing that bugs me about the poster. and as a designer i think it looks awesome!)

i hope you guys call a ton of attention to the message of liberty and will be praying for you all!

Regarding

your second link, I don't think the OP is a Paul supporter, although he says he is. He says:

"...Only because I know how the political system works can I not be worried about his crazy thoughts that I don’t agree with..." Crazy thoughts, huh?

Then he goes on to say:

"...Ron Paul and his supporters..." His supporters, not other Ron Paul supporters?

Just my observations...

BAN ELECTRONIC VOTING!!

he isnt, but...

I searched his thread for prior post to the fact, but that doesn't invalidate the points hes made. I'd love to hear thoughts on that.

I will be there

Student from George Mason University - I will be there! Join me!

Are any nonvets going, not to march, but just to

show their support? I am probably going to be in Washington that day anyway, so I am wondering. :)

...

I am not really a vet (but technically I am...but would never claim to be, as I think that would be dishonrable)...I received a dental school scholarship from the USAF for my last 2 years of school...was commissioned as a 2LT, but left the dental program during my 2nd year, and never took any money from the USAF, and was subsequently honorably discharged from the USAF...technically a "vet"...but I am going to go to Washington anyway with a good friend who is a Marine vet, and we will be marching together, but I will not stand at attention, as I believe I would be dishonoring all true vets. We are going up from Florida!! ***(I did, however, take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; and that I would bear truth faith and allegiance to the same...twice! since the AF did not get my paperwork processed in time after my first oath!) Hoping that the crowd is large and energized...we will be! SAFE TRAVELS TO ALL.

Thank You

Thank you for being WILLING to serve our country.
I have met far too many people who were too squeamish to even consider doing so...but were very proud to use their freedom of speech to insult those who did.

Very Nice..

Thanks patriot

Strong symbolism

in displaying the flag with the union down - 4 USC § 8 a)

That's not the flag.

I presume you're talking about the background; well, that is very probably not the flag, but some stuff called "bunting":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunting_%28textile%29

Freedom is my Worship Word!

The presumption is incorrect. According to the Flag Code,

a flag is anything "by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag." (USC - Title 4, Chapter 1, §3)

Yes, the background does represent a U.S.A. flag. And yes, the U.S.A. flag is displayed with the union down!

What are the negative votes for?!

The flag with the union down is a sign of distress. I've cited the official Flag Code a few times. The background of this image is clearly not bunting.

The turned flag in the background is very strong symbolism that is definitely appropriate, IMHO. But to say this is bunting when it clearly isn't is a sign of incompetence.

Better do the homework than be surprised. Just saying...

It Is a Distress Signal

Pappy @1:35 gives the signal to display the VMF 214 Black Sheep squadron flag upside down as a distress signal.

It Is the right message

unlike the message Bush sent here: http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/images/bush911.jpg

Bold display of utter disrespect.
