thank you very VERY much!

thank you very VERY much!

2500......

seems to be about right. I drove 2 hours from CT and it was well worth it. It was pretty surreal after watching soooo many hours on the internet for years and then finally seeing him in person. looking forward to the liberty love fest next weekend with all the New Englanders and others coming out. =D

I think I met you there

Hey Jake, were you the one with the sign from the 2008 campaign that I was talking to in line? We had a short conversation about Walter Williams (I think that was the name), Adam Kokesh in NH, the Liberty Fest in Worcester and a little bit about Humboltd, CA. If so, it was nice to meet you and I'll see you at the Liberty Fest.

While I was there

I kept wondering... How many of these people's posts have I read on the DP everyday and I don't even know it

me too

I was thinking the same thing! I asked someone behind me in line before the doors opened if they knew about the DP and they told me they only check it about 10 times a day. I laughed and told him I was in the same boat.

"Loyalty's worth more than wealth...in a world where...people be all for self."

I drove with fightapathy

Never met him before except on DP. Nice guy. Maybe we should have worn our DP name tags there.

Too Funny

DP Nametags, I'll wear one Inauguration Day for Dr. Paul. Acela Express...all aboard!

I rode with Ja Ke

Same situation, never met him before except on DP. Awesome ride talking about a wide variety of liberty-based topics. Wearing our DP name tags would have been a nice touch! It's a good suggestion for those who attend future rallies.

Just got back from URI

I was impressed with the crowd,I estimate about 2500 realistically. The only thing that let me down was walking through the parking lot on the way back to my car I noticed a lot of Mass. license plates. They already had their primary. And a lot of Conn. plates which was better to see as their primary is the 24th also.. I just hope enough Rhode Islanders who are registered voters were there and they can motivate just 5 others to vote for DR. P. I heard an estimate of only about 10K expected for the primary. A low turnout like that would greatly help. I'm gonna bet we get about 25% of the vote - hope I'm too cautious - good for 4-5 delegates.

neopaulite

I agree with the 2500 estimate

The hall held 3000, some empty seats but lots of people on the floor.
Lots of CT plates cuz this is the closest for us since he was in NH.

I think it is safe to say there are at least 3,000 there ... to be conservative.

He said the energy is wild!

PRESIDENT PAUL!!!!!

Help Alaska Delegates If You Can Please! See Below.

Below is a response to an e-mail I sent. I know we are still bombing, but if you can help out, maybe we can add Alaska to the plurality count?

Here is the contact email for how you can help our delegates & alternates from the far-flung regions of Alaska to be able to attend the State Convention in Anchorage next week:

We have a list of delegates & alternates across the state who need financial assistance. We will match up your donations & contact info with those people, directly.

Later we will prepare PayPal accounts for those delegates & alternates so your donations can go directly into their accounts. In the meantime, please contact us at: info@Alaskans4RonPaul2012.org

TODAY!!! TODAY!!! TODAY!!!!

Ron Paul was on NeoCon talk radio this morning and it was the most pleasant interview Helen Glover ever had while dealing with the topic of Ron Paul. She let him talk and agreed with a lot of his points. Here is the interview.

http://www.920whjj.com/cc-common/podcast/single_page.html?po...

SEE YOU ALL TONIGHT!!!!

Great Interview, That Helen Glover Is AllRight, She Let Him Talk

Some speculation follows:

As President, Dr. Paul would cut waaaay back on overseas spending and foreign aid, until our own country became prosperous once again. Since currently a portion of all gasoline and fuel prices at the pumps is federal taxes that go directly into the federal "General fund" { Used for overseas spending, among other things } A President Ron Paul could discontinue the federal gas & fuel taxes lowering the cost of gas & fuel to the consumers, which in turn would potentially lower the prices of all trucked in retail goods. States would still collect Gas/fuel taxes to pay for state road repairs.

You lucky Rhode Islanders {New Englanders }are in for a treat tonight at URI. I had to drive 5 hours to see him in Chico, California 2 weeks ago.

beesting

You're Awesome, Rachael!

Keep up the effort! See you tonight!

RI be proud!

I've been traveling a lot so I've been quiet, but everywhere I went the revolution was alive! In San Fran I wore my favorite hoodie(every day) and got stopped constantly. I couldn't believe it. On the trolley, on the street, young old, it was amazing! On the other hand, all week I was in airports opting out every time in full RP gear, they weren't as friendly.
Now I am back at home in RI. Tomorrow Dr Paul is here in my home state, I hope we can show him that the spirit of his efforts are appreciated. I will be at URI, I hope to see you there.

Happy to report!

So yesterday I said RI be proud, and I am happy to report RI was proud and LOUD! My wife and I were front row to see Dr. Paul and it was awesome. I went to URI, and can tell you Keaney gym holds about 3400 not counting people on the floor, so there was easy 3k there. Just to put that into perspective there are only a million people in the whole state, only 25k even vote in a primary. I have lived here my whole life and I have never seen so many people at a political rally. In a state that has strayed so far from founding principles, it was encouraging to see the spirit of liberty alive and strong.

hitchhike if you have to!

This place needs to be packed to the gills!!!
I am so looking forward to showing the comparison pictures of Romney's event and Calista Gingrich's Rhode Island events where she reads her children's books about government to the kids suffering from cancer treatments. Newt didn't bother to show up himself. Sent Calista as a proxy.

YFRP organizers

Please find some way to get the phone app for secure donations to the campaign. Put that app on as many phones as poosible, or bring computers or find some way to take donations. Put up a bunch of tables spaced out through the venue, and on the way in or out, please get donations!!! I don't know if you could have a cash jar even and total the $$ and send in through Youth for Ron Paul. Maybe create a flyer that talks about how Goldman and JP Morgan contribute to Obama and Romney, but Paul depends on donations from people like us. And put the website address on it. It's just fiat money after all.

Power lies dormant within those crowds of Ron Paul supporters...

Dr. Paul needs to make use of the thousands of people that come to his rallies. He needs to inspire them to fill the seat in Congress that he is vacating, and to take over all of the other 534 seats. At each and every rally he needs to tell the crowd.......

If you’re not getting actively involved in contacting your local, state, and Federal representatives concerning issues that you claim to be concerned about, then you are part of the problem.

If you're not reading the Constitution so that you know what your rights are, and what limited government looks like, then you are cheating yourself and your children out of the American dream.

If you are actually concerned about the future of this country, but you are not running for office, or helping some other patriot run for office, then you need to re-think your commitment to freedom and liberty.

Run for office... be the solution.

Don't fight the system... be the system.

That is the only way that we will win.
