Ron Paul draws his largest crowd yet - 5,200 people in Wisconsin!

Last night 1,800 people packed inside a building in Maryland while 200 people lined up outside. All to see Dr. Ron Paul. Tonight, more than 5,200 people stood outside in 40 degree weather to hear Dr. Paul speak. This beats his previous record and is now the largest Town Hall meeting Dr. Paul has had to date!

Ron Paul supporters are enthusiastic, dedicated, and motivated. Many politicians have attempted to wrestle control of Ron Paul supporters by floating rumors regarding secret deals and back room meetings. These politicians do not seem to realize that this is a movement and is about more than just one man.

He drew an estimated 10,000+

...to a rally in Philly in 2008....

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

WOW! I wish I would have been on board back then.

I keep thinking he is doing better this time but I really have no information to base this assumption on. I also heard besides drawing larger crowds in 08 that he had more money donated to his campaign in 08. Can you tell me if this is true and do you think his chances this time are better or about the same? Thank You


Does Anyone Have the Time to List Paul's Campaign Appearances

I would like to see a chronological spreadsheet listing of Ron Paul's appearances and the numbers he drew ... you could even include "capacity" plus "overflow" and "turned away" for "actual supporters." Perhaps you can also find out how much LSM press the event received too. You might do that for the other pols, as well. If the comparison doesn't convince people they're being manipulated, I don't know what could.

It would be a very good tool to demonstrate who is the real front runner and how the GOP, LSM and bankers are manipulating reality and forcing Romney and Santorum down our throats.

I, unfortunately, don't have the time or the tech savvy requirements to get it done. But I think it would be awesome.

Good idea...those numbers could be added to the video that...

somone on another post today mentioned. The video could build with higher and higher attendance figures culminating with 100 million voting for RP on election day.

All of that infor can probably be found here on the DailyPaul by searching for "attendance".

Ignore the media's lies and propaganda.

It gives me the warm fuzzies ...

... to consider how this must upset the US Dept. of Indoctrination octopus. All their carefully crafted, satanically inspired work, down the toilet ... forever! I hope ever day is a bad, depressing day for them. And, I hope and pray it only gets worse until the DOE collapses.

I was there, what an intense

I was there, what an intense energy the crowd had; rapturous. I've been to many concerts and I have never seen an crowd like this.

It wasn't just students by any stretch of the imagination, people of all ages for sure.

I notice more Ron Paul stickers and shirts everywhere now, I've been sporting bumper stickers since 2008 and rarely see a fellow paulian now theres hundred.

We were there too! The hubby,

We were there too! The hubby, myself and our 2 kids. It was awesome!

LSM reports...

It was a bunch of students attending...
Sickening typical LSM downplay.
Yet Biden's $250+ a plate fundraiser got more attention and had less than 200 show up!

And Examiner.com has declared the story Not Newsworthy... The media is our enemy!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

i havn't watched or listened

i havn't watched or listened to in over a year ( except when the doc is on of course and in that case i just watch the tube).

its truly a liberating experience. just turn it off.

Liberty or Death

I couldn't take it any

I couldn't take it any longer.

These crowds need to be shared and compared.

I've started a Flickr group to keep track http://www.flickr.com/groups/2012rally/

Anyone can join but the posts will be moderated.

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to moderate on my own so I'm hoping to add a few more admins and moderators. Feel free to join, post, and spread the word.

I've upload a couple old pics along with one from this event to get things started.

Amazing and impressive turnout,

but not surprising! You ROCK Madison!

I've posted photos from the Town Hall on Facebook in the Groups: The Army of Ron Paul and Making Friends through Ron Paul.

Just got back From Town Hall Meeting

Drove 3 hours each way. Brought my brother and 17 year old nephew. He will be 18 soon and will be voting for the good Dr. as well. It was a great turnout. (in the thousands) The crowd was all ears. And I met some of the nicest people. I was so honored to be amongst so many well behaved, well informed and dedicated people for the cause of liberty. I have been a Ron Paul fan for over 30 years and never in my wildest dreams did I think the movement would keep growing like this. Thank you Dr. Paul for visiting Wisconsin and gracing us with your presence on this cold evening.


Post the 5200 video to facebook

We have an edge in social network users. We need to all share the videos of his massive crowds with a status that reads "Think it's over yet? Think again!"

Facebook and twitter and youtube are are biggest strength. We should all share the info on sites other than DailyPaul so people like friends and family can see whats going on because believe me, most have time to check facebook after work, not all have time to pay a lot of attention to the primary. Lets get their attention!

Gather video and pictures

The media will try to keep this silent. This is exactly the kind of stuff we need to be showing videos of on laptop computers across the country. Setting up tables in public places and spreading the word.

If you get them

I'll gladly add them to the article! They want to act like this kind of crowd just doesn't happen for Ron Paul

At the bottom of the article, it now says:

UPDATE: Examiner.com has declared this article is not newsworthy. This writer disagrees. Please get this news out.

Who cares

How many show up? They certainly aren't voting.


I care!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

In '08 when the media said

In '08 when the media said things like that, I tended to believe it, but not this time around. They're voting, but their votes aren't being counted. It's terribly obvious if you're not gullible or naive. Historically the candidate with the biggest crowds and the most signs wins(in any nation that holds elections). This is either the oddest election cycle in the history of western democracy, or somebody's gaming the system. The second choice is much more likely.

If he doesn't get 5,200 votes, then we'll know for sure!!

Until then, lets just hope everyone there goes to school and work and spreads the word! I'd rather get a strong finish in Wisconsin, then vote for Santorum to block Romney and only get like 4% of the vote. That would make us look terrible...

President or not, the Revolution is happening and it grows at the local level.


You should be on the ballot for your local Republican Central Committee.

They are getting bigger

Lets challenge Texas to 10,000!
