I was there

It was packed to more than full. We were told that the place seats 1900, so I figure 2000+ were there. Very loud and so sweet that Paul talked for so long. Well worth driving 3 hours from Montana.

We were there too!

We just walked in our front door.... (spent the night in Idaho Falls). we're also from Montana. When Dr. Paul was introduced to the packed house, cheers arose in a tremendous acclaim and they probably lasted close to TWO minutes! Dr. Paul commented "That's probably one of the best welcomes I've ever had!" -only the C-span link at the top shows this Idaho welcome...

Even the local TV station -KIFI- reported that the excitement was absolutely electric!

What a great speech and well organized event. Hat's off to the local supporters!

Amazing...all without a teleprompter

Romney rarely opens his mouth without reading a teleprompter, and when he does he talks about tree heights, lakes and Daniel Boone song lyrics.

Don't Knock Daniel...

Daniel Boone can't help it if Mitt besmirches him...

Daniel probably would support Ron Paul too... :)

Nice Crowd Shots Here


This is coverage by the local TV after the event.

They covered the speech from beginning to end on live TV.

That was really good. Thanks for the news clip...


fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

Ron Paul is the MAN!!

Please check out my idea for a RON PAUL initiative.


vote it up please?

Kinda funny...

The only shot of the 'crowd' was right at the start - and they showed about 30 people...that auditorium was PACKED! Thanks, c-span...

CHECK OUT MY VIDEO! The views stopped overnight when for 'copyright' reasons, mobile viewing was disabled. I want to get to 8,000 - HELP by watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-pTvjzHN3I

Channel 8 showed the crowd

That last link is to the local TV station which covered the speech live, beginning before Paul arrived.

They showed the crowd and discussed how large it was, saying the auditorium rarely got crowds that big.

I don't know of any other link to it and what's there won't load on my computer.

I hope some others can view it.

Here's an ' ALL IN ONE ' video link.

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

It was great!

Two of my brothers and a friend made the 200 mile drive from Salt Lake to see him because we thought this might be our best chance. It was well worth it. It was a standard Ron Paul speech really, but the audience ate it up, as we always do. I hope he makes a stop in Utah before all is said and done, but I'm glad I at least got to see the good doctor in person once in my lifetime.

"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."-Samuel Adams

Anti-One world government

Anti-military industrial complex
Anti-big spending.

Great speech.
It is so important that this man wins.

Senator Peter Schiff 2016

well worth watching

I have seen many of the good doctor's speeches they only get better. He seems much more relaxed in his delivery on this one. He is a man who can brag about his top financial supporters the military like me a 20 year vet. You will never see Obama,newt, mittens or sanitation brag about their top supporters big bankers and billionaires who will get the payback when elected like so many of our other elected officials. Thanks Dr Paul for the inspiration to continue each new day talking to others about our cause of liberty.
Anyone know the size of the crowd there at Idaho Falls?

eric grote capt usaf ret

That was a wonderful speech.

I went to you tube to look for crowd shots. Were there any or did you tube take them down? Can anyone here post videos of the crowd? Thank you. (they energize us)


found one:

me too

I found that, still can't play in Firefox but it works for me in Chrome.

it might still be available at the other link

The local TV coverage (link is at bottom) showed the crowd, beginning with a broadcast before Paul had arrived.

I watched that Local TV coverage live.

They described the size as bigger than most events in that auditorium.

They also had photos, but I can't find them now on that site.

That link doesn't work on my computer.
