bring a non Paul supporter with you to a rally. I was going to see Paul with a fellow Paul supporter and she ended up not being able to go so as a last minute thing I called a good friend of mine and asked if she would like to go. She said sure. That was last year. She is an avid Paul supporter now. I never would have guessed in a million years that that would have happened with her. (hi Barb). I also bribed her husband into voting for Paul in the primary with choc. chip cookies. LOL! Whatever it takes.

Good Idea! Keep A Bullhorn Handy Just In Case Jesse Benton

and his crack team fail to ensure the PA works properly...

Audio was awful. I have a simple PA system which would have...

...filled that room.


Didn't they test the PA before he got there?

It sounded like they ran him through a boom box.

A couple of powered Mackie speakers and a small board would be all you need.

Not rocket science at all.

Room Acoustics

When weddings are held here they have to sound dampen the room. I don't think two days notice was enough time to get the audio right, but you are the one with the speakers you may know better than me.

The audio stunk, but I think it was more of a problem with the venue. When I complained about it to a friend at church, he said his company has had two corporate events in that pavilion, and they couldn't hear anything then either. The acoustics are apparently awful. Not to mention, 3000 bodies packed into a small space will absorb a lot of sound. It may have sounded fine in testing before the event.

Lets remember that this was set up on a couple days' notice. Besides, as the guy behind me said, "If they haven't already heard it, they don't have the internet." The message hasn't changed. It was about showing support, and demonstrating to Kansas and Missouri the level of support that Ron Paul has here. Kansas is neo-con central, so it was very encouraging to me to see that kind of turnout on such short notice.

Beautiful picture!

A big thankyou to everyone who makes these videos for those of us who are not able to attend.

★Bull Horn NOW!

Totally UNACCEPTABLE To Have Ron Paul Show Up for 3000 People and Not Have SOUND!
Kansas City;

Does he have a support team who checks sound before the event?

When all else fails he should always have a Bull Horn for back-up.

Even this weekend he had to address people outside because half of the crowd never got inside.

I emailed this to a couple of the local network affiliates in Houston. If this is going to make news past Kansas City, that's what we need to do.

RON PAUL 2012 * Restore America * Bring The Troops Home

Absolutely huge crowds , and ....

Paul's crowds are growing everyday at his events . If this doesn't validate the fraud that has been committed by the GOP and the MSM the past few months , nothing will . I'm hoping once the Rep. party starts crashing and burning over this voter fraud, that Ron Paul jumps ship and says the hell with them and runs as an Independent.

My favorite part of the

My favorite part of the evening was before the speech started. I walked in hoping the group in front of me knew where to go, but they came to a point where they looked at each other and realized they were lost. Just then, out of no where, a man came around a corner, looked at them, and said "The REVOLUTION is happening just up those stairs"! What a grandiose entrance! Everyone there was very friendly, and was an amazing experience.

It was the same

for me. We had a group of about ten people that didn't know each other, but we all were talking about how awesome it was going to be and we found our way. I was having a beer at Pierpont's on the patio and the people would not stop pouring in by the hundreds.

Some friends and I from the University of Arkansas Youth for Ron Paul made the 4 hour trip up to Kansas City last night and got there just before Dr. Paul was about to speak! So glad we made it. Run Ron Run!

Just Received This Email From John Tate...

Dear Patriot,

I hear sometimes that some of you don't like our long emails, and that you would give more to short ones.

Well, here’s your chance!

Dr. Paul has asked the grassroots to raise $2 million by tomorrow night.

Go here to donate right away.

Right now, we are just under $400,000 short of that goal. Please do all you can today!

For Liberty,

John Tate

That's awesome! I think his message is really catching on! :)

Google Ron Paul

Google Ron Paul and you find virtually nothing in the national media about the crowds he's been drawing. They are certainly afraid of the enthusiasm his campaign is generating.

You have to Google+ and share positive stories.

That's how Google "grades" news stories for inclusion in search results.

So...tweet it, Google+ it, and Facebook positive stories.

Great speech

Any way you slice it, that was a great speech. I would have driven there in a heartbeat if I would have known. KC is only 4 hours from me....

Here is the video

I am actually watching it and hearing it for the first time now and I was there! The sound as many have said was not ideal but the people were passionate and so was Dr. Paul!

I'm in Paulian heaven

These latest campaign stop videos are so sweet. The crowd energy and the turnouts are just phenomenal. Who could watch television while all this is going on?

It would cost Romney a lot of

It would cost Romney a lot of money to pay for that crowd.

But those positive headlines are pricey: "Thousands gather for Romney".

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it.
