Maybe Ron is seeing how well he can do in a general election outside of the Republican party. If so I hope he brings this up in FL so they are forced to give him the nomination or else.


I hope greatly that IF we don't get the nomination it will be "I run third party and the nominee will then be guaranteed to lose" Force them to make him the nominee. They are scared of him doing this, because not only does he actually stand a chance in a third party, but the republican nominee would be guaranteed to lose. :)

Be afraid establishment.. be very afraid.

Its Coming

Remember wall-to-wall coverage of Obama in 2008?

When Obama drew these kinds of crowds in 2008, the media were giving it wall-to-wall coverage. For Paul in 2012? Nothing. Literally nothing.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

How do you turn this into votes in primary

Were they handing out voter registration forms at the Berkeley and UCLA events ? Ron Paul draws these massive crowds at all the Universities nationwide yet the primary results rarely show him winning those very same ridings.

As a Canadian I wish Ron and his supporters all the best for on in 2012 as we do all around the world. Romney is not to be trusted ! The election fraud and rigged caucuses led by his administration and their cronies just proves it.

You have to take over the GOP

GOP insiders across the country are full of people who will lie, cheat, and steal to make sure that Paul doesn't win.

We're doing that in LA county

We've got 110 liberty candidates on the ballot for Central Committee. Too late to run the show for this primary, but if we win this one good things could come...

Capacity is 10,000

The seating capacity is maxed out at 10,000. Police weren't allowing any more people inside (there were still scores coming in 20ish minutes into his speech) after it became full. there were people in trees and on the walkway outside the gates just to hear Ron Paul. There had to have been over 8,000 easily and I'm guessing because it was at capacity, 10,000 people were there.

10,000 is NOT the capacity

What is your source?

UCLA Ron Paul Event! ‎6,500 is the capacity of Straus Stadium court.

Rule of Thumb

If you are supposed to go anywhere on the UCLA or Berkeley campuses, allow an extra hour to get lost.

Their signage is horrible.

I've been complaining for years.

If you don't miss most of your first class, you can bet the instructor will.

And that's not to mention the parking issues.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

There they go...

And on another note, Rick

And on another note, Rick "frothy" Santorum drew 25 to 30 reporters to a rally in his HOME state!


Before the california election

We have got to do what we can to get celebrities to come out for Ron Paul. I compiled a up to date list of the ones that either support him or have talked about how they like him. The list is below:

Snoop dogg
Oliver stone
Norm Macdonald
Kelly clarkson
KRS one
Prodigy (Mobb Deep)
Vince Vaughn
Billy corgan
Juliette Lewis
Clint Eastwood
Kurt Russel
Joe Rogan
Doug Stanhope
Michelle Branch
Drew Carrey
John Mayer
Jesse Ventura
Pras Michel (Fugees)
Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols)
Jonathan Davis (Korn)
Richard Dreyfuss
Willie Nelson
Aimee Allen
Penn and Teller
Arrested Development (rapper)
Wale (rapper)
Darren Burrows (actor)
Jimmie Vaughn (Guitarist an brother to Stevie Ray Vaughn)
Joe Perry (Aerosmith guitarist)
And a few more I'm probably forgetting.

Excellent Idea

This is what they did with Kony. More importantly we need celebrities with audiences. People like Joe Rogan are perfect. What about Ashton Kutcher? He has a huge Twitter following. We have to focus our energy on a few celebrities that can reach the most people!

fox 11 LA

Does anyone have video of fox la last night at 10pm?


I got there 45 min before the event actually started and OMG I have never seen lines that long in my entire life!!!!!!! But Whatever the UCLA website says about capacity...well Every seat was filled and there were still people standing and that also does not include the people that were still outside waiting to get in. Some didn't even get to but they stook outside the gate to listen!!! It was seriously the event of a lifetime! I hope he breaks tonights record over and over!!!!

Reports of his campaign demise - greatly exaggerated

To borrow from Mark Twain.

If this kind of crowd expansion keeps increasing, pretty soon pro-football stadiums will be the only places big enough to fit the, "huddled masses yearning to breathe free", eh?

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Reports of Ron Paul's campaign demise is an exaggeration.

Please feel free to use my expressions freely.

As for you concern about place big enough, please cosider .... Max Yasgur's Farm

If not for farmer Max Yasgur, the Woodstock Music Festival might not have taken place. Two Catskills villages refused to accommodate it; he opened his field.

Music, and the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, today occupy the land where Max Yasgur's alfalfa once grew.

Built to accommodate large, music-loving crowds, the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts pays homage to Max Yasgur and the Woodstock Music Festival that turned this rural corner of New York State into a place known throughout the world.

No election day gratification

The crowds are great! But there is no election day gratification.

So either a) the whole voting process is hopelessly rigged and fraudulent on a massive scale, or b) all these people are just people outside-the-system and the type that don't even bother to show up and vote.

I think its mostly a).

Without victory, none of this means anything.
Without a legitmate election system, victory is impossible.

So I don't know where the "good news" is ever going to come from. The Establishment can never be removed from power.

History books cite many times & places...

where the Power-That-Be went bygone.

Printer-That-Be comes & goes. Changes print color & style. Those that control the printing press change by & by. The current racket monetizing our US Fed notes is going on 99 years. That is over two Jubilees. About time for some kindness... Some debt forgiveness. Leviticus 25. James, 5.

Here in WA state, many caucus venues were too small & limited

The unfortunate thing about caucuses is that some communities couldn't find meeting places big enough to fit the number of willing participants. Our precinct caucus was standing-room only! I know people who couldn't get in.

Then the county caucus, held later in the same building, was truncated to the time we had to clear the church building for their evening use. It's not as simple as your A or B analysis, Baby. C what I mean?

"If Romney or Santorum..."

It is possible that if these two unelectable candidates from the Stupid Party ever got the crowds that Ron Paul receives, the MSM may cover it like the Second Coming. Unusual or bizarre happenings attract media attention.

However, if Mr. Mittens ever received such popular adulation, this would be about as newsworthy as flying dogs or raining pearls! I don't know if Romney, for instance, is actually reduced to PAYING for supporters to show up at his speeches and appearances, but I wouldn't be surprised. As for Santorum or Gingrich, the less said the better. I would be honestly frightened if either of those two truly loathsome fascists ever started receiving universal popular acclaim, with or without noisemedia provocation!

Last night was my first time

seeing Dr. Paul in person. The crowd was huge!! We arrived an hour early with advanced seating tickets and were trying to find the back of the line to get in...but it went on and on and on. People were lined up for like a mile!! No joke!

We finally got to our seats and the introduction started immediatly, even before the arena was filled. They continued to slowly file people in (even as Dr. Paul was speaking) until it was completely full. Even then you could still hear chanting coming from outside, "Ron Paul, Ron Paul". When I turned around to survey the crowd I saw kids had climbed the trees on the outside and were watching from the tree tops!!

Everyone was super nice, enthusiastic, energetic! The college did a great job hosting, very orderly...and the young gentleman who introduced Dr Paul seemed especially excited and comfortable in front of so many people!

Dr. Paul was on fire...great speech! The sound system made very easy to hear every word...

Overall, an amazing evening!! (my only gripe: they wouldn't let us take our signs in)

I remember last election when

I remember last election when they showed a crowd at an Obama rally. His stage was like a Temple, and there was a crowd of about this size (maybe a bit smaller) and everyone's jaws were dropping. It was all OVER the news. This is SO bad...

I was wondering what

Obama's typical crowd size was during the last election cycle. Any idea what his pre-election win record was for attendance?

We always to well when we have a goal to beat. :-)

75,000 during the primaries

Obama had a crowd of 75,000 in Oregon before their May 2008 primary.


There was also 75-80,000 at his acceptance speech in Denver in August, and reportedly 200,000 at his speech in Berlin in July. In October he drew 100,000 in St. Louis and 75,000 in Kansas City.


In September 2010 he rallied 26,000 in Madison which was apparently his high point of the mid-term campaign.
