We need you Ron Paul!

Folks of Washington & the rest of the Primary states to follow bring your friends to the Polls and become delegates. Look at the turnout and if we can bring at least 10 friends to the polls we can dominate, but you need to talk to your neighbors. Ron Paul or $10 of gas coming very soon!

Miles of smiles

Ron Paul 2012!

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Your comment reminded me of

Your comment reminded me of this these lyrics

Face piles of trials with smiles. It riles them to believe you perceive the web they weave. Keep on thinking free.

of this song, a song in my dad's time and whose band I've come to enjoy immensely and with him saw in concert several months ago!


NOTE: music picks up just before the minute mark. Lyrics begin just after the first minute.

Ron Paul, 2012!

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

I will always remember...

the joy on people's faces as they got into the venue.

Its inspiring!

Ron Paul

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Yes, me too

I saw the pat on the back... "We got in! We got in!"


Yeah, but Fox News says he's unelectable . . .

. . . so all those people standing outside are just crazy conspiracy theorists. I think Ron Paul should just quit, because the mainstream media says that he's a dangerous kook.

In case my sarcasm isn't obvious enough, let me clarify by saying how awesome this video is. It's so heartwarming to see a man who's been ridiculed for decades (see Morton Downey, 1988) for simply speaking the truth, finally be vindicated with growing support.

Ron Paul for President 2012

PS - Have Romney or Santorum had any problems of events overflowed by supporters? I highly doubt it.

Motorcycle cop @ 1:10 - Nearly took out that lady


If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.


WOW.... JUST WOW... ISN'T IT NICE TO KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT ALONE. Every day this message of Liberty picks up more steam. Like a snowball rolling down hill. It keeps getting bigger, rolling faster and will crush those who get in the way.

better audio, closer up

just a snafu @20-30 sec.



OK - here's RP's impromptu speech outside

to those who couldn't get into the venue - better audio and closer up:

Ron Paul Rally followed by Hooters= Best Day Ever

My roommate and I, both avid Ron Paul supporters, drove 2 hours up from Eugene, OR to see the good doctor speak in Vancouver. We arrived ten minutes late to find the Hilton was already over capacity and the crowd had overflowed out on the sidewalk where people were watching the speech on the screens in the news vans parked outside. We heard that he might come outside to talk to the overflow crowd later, so we headed in to the hotel lobby for some beers. Being late was the best thing that happened to us, because after the rally had ended and everyone left, we stuck around and waited outside the parking garage for 30 minutes. A man of his word, (should I have expected less?) sure enough out came Ron Paul to talk to the crowd of 100plus people who, having been denied access earlier, were anxiously awaiting to hear from the good doctor. He talked to us for about 5 minutes on a megaphone, but to be quite honest I barely heard what he was saying because I was in shock as to how close I was standing to the man who is pretty much my idol (sorry Dad). He was wearing some fly-ass murdered out Reebocks and was looking very Presidential. Stopped in at Hooters on the way back to Eugene: BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.

Sooooo happy for you!


President Ron Paul!

This movement is UNSTOPPABLE!!Stop watching the media please they are paid off!I am in complete TEARS!LOVE LOVE IT!







Here is Ron Paul speaking outside to the overflow crowd

with a megaphone!! A hero of the highest order. Bear with the video, the camera zooms in much closer... I'm sure videos with better audio volume will surface soon - but for now, this captures this very special moment in this campaign:

Ron Paul - the People's President

I was in Bellevue last weekend and there were 2 or 3 Ron Paul

signs on every intersection - even in the suburb neighborhoods! Go Washington!!

I sent this to a friend

who isn't even a Paul supporter(yet)and she said she cried
all the way through.That's how powerful this video is!


Amazing video, very inspiring, Thank You Ron Paul supporters you rock!


thank you

OMG! You're right - tear jerker, heart pumper. Thanks for this.

The revolution is alive, well and growing near and far. I have such heart-felt gratitude to see such evidence that the movement continues to grow - to see people come out of the closet for Freedom; to discover that they are not now and really have never been alone in their questioning their corrupt government and their desire for common sense, dignity and personal sovereignty; realizing that they are not strangers in a strange land, but one of a huge number of people who will no longer back down and who have a voice and a champion - Dr. Ron Paul. I'm so proud to be a part of this and to be among you who love Freedom!

This video missed the best part.

Before Dr. Paul left in his vehicle, he stopped the driver and got out of the vehicle and gave a speech right their along the sidewalk, to the supporters standing outside. It was awesome.

"Give me liberty or give me death" Patrick Henry

the part you were missing...

What a guy, to stand there in the sleet and deliver this to the people he knew had been turned away from the indoor event.

Apologies for the video @20-30 sec. Operator error, I thought the camera could follow me...



correct link

I tried to edit the above comment. for a link to
the "missing part" see:



Good video

So that was before he left the parking lot exit. Very thoughtful of him to stop in the rain and talk to those that may have not made it inside.

It looks like that file is still on your computer

Can you upload it to youtube or www.mediafire.com

Or any of the following except MegaUpload, which our corrupt government seized and took over:


I think I got it

figured out, thank you!!



This video is emotionally provoking and really captures the feeling on the day. What a remarkable rally!

(I'm the tall dude by the American Flag sign at 5:36, btw :-D)

as one of the county organizers involved...

Thanks for this excellent video.

This was a crazy event. We got TWO DAYS to put it together. <:-O It was such a whirlwind for me that I totally forgot to simply email my OWN FRIENDS to tell them about it!! Going up I-5 I was making phone calls to some, telling them to come, and then when I got inside the event (one of the very last who did, as it turned out) I was calling them back telling them not to bother if they were on their way since they wouldn't be able to get in!

I saw a lot of familiar faces in the video. Here are a few I'd like to point out (not naming everybody out of respect for privacy, though):

First up was Katja, of course. She's the woman speaking at the beginning. I will let her tell her story whenever she wants, but I'm proud to call her a friend.

At 0:04 a man in a light-colored RP sweatshirt leans out to listen to Katja. He's from near me, and traveled over an hour to get there. I thought he wasn't going to be able to make it so it was great to see him there.

Starting at 0:40 you see a woman with a sign standing next to the bagpiper; she is another friend from that same area. She and the bagpiper didn't get into the event after also traveling over an hour.

At 4:41 at the far right edge of the picture is another die-hard in a white sweatshirt. He came up with my group.

I know a lot of others there who didn't appear in this video: a man in a cowboy hat who came up solo all the way from Grants Pass (so. Oregon), a lifelong WW2 vet and Bircher who came with his wife from Tigard (Portland suburb), a 2008 RP RNC delegate and her daughter who came up from Medford, and so many more.

But most of all, I want to call your attention to the dope-smoking college hippie in the green jacket visible starting at 0:27 carrying a RP sign. That's Joe. He just turned 90. He's a staunch Christian conservative, he's been blowing the whistle on the Rockefeller subversion of America for decades, and this is his second Ron Paul campaign with us. I picked him up from a senior living center where he's recovering from falling 16 feet out of a tree. (He was helping his 102-year-old neighbor. Kids these days... so reckless!) We almost didn't connect with him yesterday due to a communication breakdown, but I'm glad we worked it out and he got to come and see Dr. Paul in person. It means a lot to me.

Two days. Sheesh. I know a lot more would have come if they'd heard about it sooner -- or at all!


What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

Sam Great Job.... IF you can push all these folks to

talk to at least 10 of their neighbors and to become delegates we can win this battle!
