Cavuto was informed of the 6,200 record turnout

Cavuto just did a GOOD interview with the GOOD DOCTOR.
Cavuto, "You definitely have an important role to play."
Cavuto, "What do you want out of all of this?"
Dr. Paul, "I want to live in a free country."

I hope to see it posted soon. Best chance is RonPaulFlix.com

Dr. Paul, "I want to live in a free country." omigod, I want to

cry. Never give up, never give in! Full speed ahead! All the way to the convention!

Why aren't they doing this...?

Move Berkeley to a bigger venue!

I can't make it to these events (still out of State) but can...

...make it to LA for the Nassim Taleb fund-raiser...if folks help chip-in for a ticket:

Great speech

I've watched so many of Ron Paul's speeches that I've began to expect a knockout performance every time.

After watching this, I realized that his latest speeches aren't only impressive relative to his past speeches; they are just flat out great.

Think about Buchanan's speech at the 1992 RNC. It didn't even come close to what Ron is doing here.

I was there

Ron Paul looked amazing and his speech was great! I waited for hours to get a good spot right up front for me and my family. Some liberals who came to "check him out" sqeezed thier way infront of me and asked me some questions like "yeah well,what does he stand for" and one girl made a comment "I'm surprised he chose to speak on a campus since he doesnt approve of public education"(she's editor of a local newspaper) I realized right away they were completely uninformed and there was no way I was going to talk to them instead of listen to RP. I left the rally with mixed emotions and am still disturbed by the ignorance of people who are "intelligent" but cannot seem to grasp the basic message of the movement even when its right infront of them. I am sickend by my liberal friends and there isnt enough time for me to try and educate everyone I know. If they were really looking for the truth they would find it, but they dont want to know, they want to critisize and complain and pick apart. My conclusion last night was American people are just too stupid to see the truth. This is a valient effort on the part of the revolution to try and save people who dont deserve it. I never felt more strongly about leaving this country than I did last night, I still feel like I'm going to cry and i'm definatly going to lose some friends. How do I cope with the injustice of it all...where do I go.

I totally understand how you feel.

It's going to be hard to snap people out of their programing as long as they continue to veg out and turn to their TV sets for truth. But our numbers are growing fast and its not going to stop. As The Doctor said, "This is an intellectual revolution" and it's not all about this one election. I'm so grateful that RP has fought for us all this time as well as bringing us closer together thus making us stronger to fight for what is right. It's all about organizing and doing what we can to restore constitutional law at the local level.

Hate to be the bringer of bad news

But there is no country that would take you without a ton of money and even if they would, where would you go where there's less socialism than the United States?

Face it, this country is the last true chance for Liberty. If we can't do it here, you won't find it elsewhere.

I feel you bro

I felt the same way when Santorum "surged" in Iowa. I still can't believe that real people vote for these clowns. It just makes me sad and angry. I have strongly considered leaving as well.

I haven't really made up my mind yet. Running for local office is a possibility that lurks in the back of my mind, but I worry that we are too far gone as a country. You could spend 30 years fighting against an inevitable end.

I would encourage you to at least meet a few of your state rep candidates if you have not done so already. I was surprised to find that most of them are just regular people like me. That made running for office seem a bit more attainable.

Ron Paul pamphlets on Abortion, Israel and the Federal Reserve written from an evangelical perspective can be downloaded free from the attached web site. These pamphlets are very effective on Christians that really care to know the truth. Give them a try and tell other Ron Paul supporters!



Fishy article...

An "expert" tells us that the RP campaign exaggerates. I did not notice that they do. It seems that the goal is to water down the rising support for Ron Paul despite of all media blackout, now to the readers of DP. The writer is supposedly a great supporter but he is "realistic", and we should believe to his "objectivity and expertise".

yes, never question anything

After all, we don't want anyone who thinks.

I think too...

about strange structure of your article, and possible motivations :)

Why does it matter?

In a state of 38 million people, in a city with a population of 86,000, on a campus with 15,000 students, in an area with millions living within a few hours of driving...

we're quibbling about whether it was 6,000, 3,000 or a few hundred in attendance?

Why does it matter? Sorry, but compared to what we need to win, it's pathetically few no matter how you slice it.

17,034 enrolled students

My curiosity was up so I decided to google how many students were enrolled at Chico. According to ChaCha.com The March 9, 2012 figure is 17,034 enrolled students. Ron Paul had quite a turn out!

It would be quite a turn out...

If many of those attending were Chico State students rather than people driving from all over Northern CA 1, 2, 3 hours to see Ron Paul.

"Know what you know, know what you don't know, and understand and appreciate the distinction."


I think it matters

because the truth is not being told. Why not just say 12,000 instead of 6,200? We can either multiply the number by 2 or divide it by 2 or tell the truth. The truth is what counts. How about all the times I hear Hannity say 3 GOP candidates. Well there are 4. Facts are essential. And when they are changed, they speak either positively or negatively to what the truth is.


Besides, it's not like we can't achieve accurate headcounts.

Paul says 6,200 then its

Paul says 6,200 then its 6,200 case closed.

He has not said that

Which is exactly the point, isn't it?

You hear what you want to hear.

He never said that but still you say he did.

Not at all what he said.

MSM "coverage" of Ron Paul campaign--lies, lies and more lies!

They lie about EVERYTHING ELSE, so why should we, or anybody, expect the truth from any of them regarding Ron Paul, his campaign, or our movement?

If they were to start "covering" us truthfully, I would start to worry! I would wonder what was up their sleeve, what Ron Paul may be doing wrong, or whether we were articulating our messages of peace, liberty and prosperity with sufficient clarity to distinguish between RomneyGingrichSantorum,and O'bomber, on one hand, and the real Ron Paul, on the other.

Their coverage embargo, and their lies, are irritating, but as long as we continue to get the message out, and the support base keeps growing, we are doing well, and THAT is what is important.

Lying is really slander and

Lying is really slander and the campaign should let them know since they are NOT covering his events that does not mean he is not having them--and BIG ones! They need to print a retraction. This is a flat out LIE, and the campaign should sue them.

Thanks for the corrected link!

I don't know how to edit my post as I do not do this that often, mostly am a reader here, but that just ticked me off, obviously as I didn't have link right!

FOX is beamed from a galaxy far, far away

It takes a long time for signals to reach from here to there and back again.

What we see today on FOX is coverage of the 2000 campaign....they only now are learning of and responding to those long ago radio signals.

They don't mention Paul because he wasn't running in that election.

Ron Paul in Chico!

My husband, son, and I attended this rally! We were so pleased that Dr. Paul came to Chico - way up in Northern California.
Fantastic! Thousands of enthusiastic people jammed onto the square. I was SO thrilled to be able to attend one of his rallies and hear him live and share the experience with thousands of others, and especially so many young people.
We stood next to a very nice Chico student from Berkley, CA whose family are all Democrats - HE by contrast is very independent minded as I could tell by his comments, questions to me and responses to Dr. Paul's speech.
The freedom movement is growing - praise the Lord!
