1,000 in Attendance, 800 Turned Away in Vancouver, WA - What other GOP candidate can draw #'s like these?

Way to go Seattle - my home town! Born and raised, lived there for my first 35 revolutions around the sun. After 1919 and 1999, I know you've still got it in you.

Check the time. Time to step into your power America.

The Message of Liberty

and the tenacity of Dr. Paul feeds my soul.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Premium Paul

Excellent!

I hope this energy shows up to vote.

Nobody gets crowd attendance like Ron Paul. Nobody. Not even Obama, unless they bring people in. But we need results at the polls. If they have been flipping the votes, it's up to the Ron Paul team to do something about it, or enlist the services of a private detective team to do it. First an foremost, a simple call for a Ron Paul supporter to stand up and take responsibility at their place of vote to demand an onsight count with witnesses, and record the outcome. Who could argue after Iowa and Maine?

Fantastic!!!

Way to go!

Love it when Dr. Paul raises his voice. He was definetly in control!!!!

My son was stationed at Fort Lewis and they absolutely love Ron Paul there. He is now stationed in South Korea. I can't wait to send him this video.

How can it be that Dr. Paul draws crowds like this & hasn't

one a couple of states? I mean, does Santorum draw crowds like this? NOT.

And, the REALLY SUSPICIOUS TELLING INDICATOR was...........IOWA......where Santorum drew "drips" of people, not crowds.

I still believe to this day that the IOWA GOP........flipped the votes, and it was in reality RON PAUL that won Iowa. It is INCREDULOUS to me that Santorum, a relative "nothing" at the time, could rise exponentially out of nowhere to where he was in Iowa in a matter of one weekend! THAT is unbelievable! Of course, he did have "some" help from BIG MEDIA, didn't he.

What amazes me and should anyone is that RON PAUL had such turnouts DESPITE the efforts of Big Media to destroy him. JERKS, all of them!

yea... it certainly is very

yea... it certainly is very odd. If anything Bachmann and Perry should have gotten more of the evangelical votes, since they are evangelicals. Yet many of the voters 'voted' for a Catholic which doesn't happen all that easily.

Kinda makes you wonder...

It's called Election Fraud

If this weren't a rigged game, Dr. Paul would win 40 states.

Way to be there WA.

Way to be there WA.

Pledge allegiance to the CONSTITUTION !

Perfect, this is pledging allegiance to "We the people..." and all what is stands for, what a magnificent idea.

Thank You Vancouver!

Thanks, Vacouver I needed to see this--this morning. What a great opportunity for a spontaneous Ron Paul sign wave. Please don't be discouraged by not getting into to the venue.

Humans for Ron Paul !

I AM PISSED OFF - SEATTLE GOT SCREWED.

I took time off work to see Dr. Paul speak at the Airport Hilton.

But they turned away hundreds of us. Many who traveled from far and wide to see him.

WHAT KIND OF A JOKE VENUE WAS THAT???

IS THE CAMPAIGN THAT UNAWARE???

I BITCHED AT THE HOTEL BECAUSE THEY KICKED US OUT OF A HALL NEAR THE ROOM WHERE HE WAS SPEAKING BUT THEY TOLD ME TO TAKE IT UP WITH THE CAMPAIGN.

SO I WILL!

THAT WAS UTTERLY DISRESPECTFUL TO US AND RIDICULOUS.

YOU CAN'T TELL ME THERE'S NOT A VENUE NEAR SEA-TAC AIRPORT THAT CAN HOLD A COUPLE THOUSAND PEOPLE.

THAT WOULD HAVE DONE IT - BUT NO - THEY HAVE TO CHOOSE A SMALL ROOM AND TURN HUNDREDS OF US AWAY.

THAT WAS ROTTEN. PERIOD.

SHAME ON THE RON PAUL CAMPAIGN IN WASHINGTON STATE.
AFTER ALL THE WORK I'VE DONE HERE.

WTF?????????????

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

I sympathesize but you gotta get there early

Campaigns can only guess how many will attend, and they never want to book too large a room and have it half empty. It costs money to reserve a just-in-case overflow room and Ron has been very clear about being frugal with his contributors' money.

Don't Worry

Be Happy.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Well my goodness.....

.......aren't your undies quite in a knot there!!!

Kinda wondering what the priority here was. For YOU to see Ron Paul....

Or for Ron Paul to SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE LISTENING TO HIS MESSAGE AND TOOK THE TIME TO COME SEE HIM!

As a supporter, I'd be happier that they HAD to turn people away than if he was struggling to fill a room.

I sure hope your reaction was in the minority there.

it looks like...

Dr. Paul spoke to those who were outside as well:

My 2 cents

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.

Mark Twain

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

you know the campaign does have a few bad apples

for instance, when they said they wouldn't promote public counting out loud and on paper outside of the electoral process. some of the most critical things like public counting... 2000 people crowds, I don't blame Ron Paul though because I know he is just there to spread his message in hopes that his campaign staff will make the right calls.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right. -Henry Ford

In a way I do feel sorry for you

But on the bright side, you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren about the time to went to see President Paul and that so many other people agreed with you that you were unable to even get in the door!
Don't let the experience sour you on Ron Paul! It wasn't his fault but the fault of the organizers and it shows that Dr Paul's message is growing even faster than they expected!
I do agree that if it was me that happened to that I would probably also be initially upset, but try to look for the bright side of it! Brag to your fellow employees about it!
"Hey, there were so many people there that I couldn't even get in the door! Isn't it great!"

This was the biggest venue

This was the biggest venue available there. Read. This is much better than if only forty people showed up, why don't you get it? Selfish reactions are way too common in this country, that might be the real foundational problem.

Sad.

SELFISH??? I'm speaking for hundreds - not just myself.

It probably was planned this way to make a headline.

We were just the pawns in the game.

They now claim you had to be there at 2:00 in the afternoon to get in that room.

Not all of us have 6 hours to sit around waiting - we're busy earning a living and paying taxes for the welfare/warfare state.

Really rotten move.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Now you're just flat out

Now you're just flat out overreacting, which ironically is yet another major issue with our country today. You're starting to look like the poster child! Just chill out, good grief.

That is not true I was there at 7:19pm and walked right up front

Here is a picture of me I am the one in front with the phone my fiance is right next to me with the Ron Paul button (pic 4 of 18) http://www.seattlepi.com/local/connelly/article/Ron-Paul-A-p... this was directly in front of Dr. Paul. I felt bad for the hundreds of people who were there outside the ballroom, during Ron Paul's speech they were chanting "We want Paul, We Want Paul..." so loud Ron had to pause for a moment. It's too bad that many people did not get there on time to see the speech but it is not like you had to be there 5 1/2 hours early, it was more like you had to be walking into the ballroom 10 minutes early. We arrived in the parking lot at 7:00PM. It's too bad we didn't have a bigger venue but the campaign probably didn't know that so many people would show up on such short notice.

Please, pawn

Yes, the campaign arranged this tour at the last minute. Yes, the local campaigns had only 48 hours or less to secure venues. For whatever reasons . . . it sure appears like crummy planning (or failure to plan in advance).

But using us as pawns? One doesn't buy that.

But as one who was on the volunteer team, be assured that

1) you did not have to be there by 2pm in order to get into the ballroom--5:30 would have done it.

2) those who worked as volunteers felt really bad about all those who not only couldn't get in but the fact that there was no video or sound feed. (And we didn't get in, either!)

I had 3 other people there who are undecided - Could not get in.

So they left.

Might have gotten 3 more solid Ron Paul votes if they could have seen him speak in person.

SAD - SAD - SAD.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

That is really sad

But honestly I was there and at around 7:20PM I walked right up to the front of the stage so if you had arrived a mere ten minutes or so before the speech was scheduled to begin you and your three friends could have been right there next to me and my fiance. When did you arrive?

The Doyle Lonnegan Treatment - "THE SHUT OUT!"

I think the bastards did that to you just because your the PAWNSTORM12...

Just kidding...The same sh*t happened to me once..

Yea, i needed to go 10-200 and all the crapers were full of as sholes!!
