Ron Paul In Anchorage March 4thSubmitted by AK4Paul on Mon, 03/05/2012 - 08:23
My wife (Grambo2) and I had the pleasure of attending and helping at Dr. Paul's rally here in Anchorage Sunday. It was held at the new Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center. There were 1034 seats set up on the floor, all taken, with an estimated 350 or so left standing. Unfortunately, security for the center decided to wand people coming in causing a late start and people were still arriving as Dr. Paul was finishing his presentation. I honestly felt the whole issue could have been handled better, especially since they did not open the doors to the public until 5:15 PM with the venue slated for a 6 PM start. If anyone knows a valid reason behind this I'd like to hear from them.
With our numbers here in Anchorage, coupled with the attendance quoted for the Fairbanks rally, Dr. Paul was able to reach out to a substantial number of his Alaskan followers.
On a lighter note, for those of you who have never heard the good Doctor speak in person, it was like sitting down and listening to an old friend. There were no "sound bite" moments. Simply a trusted friend discussing the where's and why's of today's national dilemma followed by responsible solutions for same. When able to personally hear Dr. Paul's thoughts from beginning to end without portions removed or placed out of context by the MSM, he is elevated to a even higher plane.
We only have a day and a half until we vote in the Presidential Preference Poll. Be sure to stay after to participate in the selection of Delegates.
