Ron Paul's Velvet RevolutionSubmitted by DeMolay on Fri, 06/01/2012 - 02:31
What do they want? A gold-based monetary policy and a restoration of civil liberties! When do they want it? As soon as possible without jeopardizing the gains they've made within the Republican party structure in the last four years!
For supporters of Rep. Ron Paul, 2012 is different. Four years ago, the Texas Republican was shut out of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, denied a speaking spot despite placing fourth in the delegate race. His feisty supporters responded by staging a counter-convention, the Rally for the Republic, that drew 12,000 rabid Paulites to Minneapolis on the eve of Sen. John McCain's acceptance speech—a speech that was briefly interrupted by a heckling Paul supporter. Now, with a hundred delegates to Paul's name and a string of victories at state conventions, Paul's energized supporters are planning to unleash mayhem in Tampa, right?
