Ron Paul Draws 6,000 in Austin at U. of Texas

http://youtu.be/8w55BplpQ_Q

Thousands of chanting, cheering supporters flooded the University of Texas campus to show Ron Paul some love Thursday night, undaunted by the prospect that the Texas congressman is a long shot for the GOP presidential nomination.

There is more to winning than victory at the polls, Paul told the crowd, which broke into occasional chants of "President Paul."

"I'm convinced a revolution is going on. It is an intellectual revolution," Paul said.

"It is going to be difficult, but it is always glorious to have success. And we will have success," he said. "Regardless of what happens next week, next month, November — the spirit of this revolution is not going away."

Those are good

Yeah, those are good, get a better sense of the size of the audience.

Yes,

and also a better sense of the variety of people!

By what reliable means was the figure 6,000 determined?

I saw one report that mentioned 3,000 or less. It does us no good to fool ourselves.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

I think this clip gives you a better idea as to the size of the crowd, from the middle of the crowd instead of one of the far edges.

-Give me liberty.

Yes , visually impressive,

but I'd need a detailed aerial view to make much of a size estimate.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

The 5000 to 6000...

...figure is probably accurate. The 6000 figure came from the local liberal newspaper that would not have inflated the number. I think the 5000 figure came from the Ron Paul organizers. The low figures mentioned came from the UT Police, they don't know shit, and were reporting a deflated no.

I heard there were 4,300 in Philly...

Meanwhile I would be surprised if there were more than 2,500. Stooping to the level of half-truths and slanting information is not what the Liberty movement needs to spread.

I hope the Texas Campaign is organizing all these

people to help out with the campaign to drive Texas voters to the polls.

Great Full Video of this event!

I was watching on full screen

My GF walked by, looked at the crowd size, and just said "Holy sh1t!"

"undaunted by the prospect

"undaunted by the prospect that the Texas congressman is a long shot for the GOP presidential nomination." This line says it all doesn't it? How many candidates would draw a crowd like this in any election? And the irony is the less a win looks to the outside world, the bigger his crowds get!

Bravo to Dr. Paul

Still working hard day after day for our liberties.

Let's keep working hard for him.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

The guy using his big sign to

The guy using his big sign to block the network news cameras was undoubtedly a douche, but I couldn't help but find it hilarious anyway.

VN crowd!
