=======================================================

The Liberty Live Stream Team, the SURIYAHFISH channel, has launched a chipin page, a $400.00 limit page, running until this coming monday to assist in defraying the expense for WiFi at the convention at $99.00 per day, and gasoline expenses incurred driving from Oklahoma to Forth Worth and back to Oklahoma.

7 members of the Team crammed into one vehicle and are footing the bill for this entirely out of pocket.

ANY donation, no matter what size, will not only assist in covering cost, it will give the Team in the field a great deal of confidence.

------------------------------------

Dr. Ron Paul's speech specifically addressed the economy and the current status of the republican party going forward. It is estimated that as many as 9,000 people were in attendance in the Main Hall of the Forth Worth convention center for this Speech.

The Liberty Live Stream Team, (SURIYAHFISH channel on Ustream.com), will continue to host and provide you with "General Assembly" events at the Texas State republican convention in Forth Worth Texas at the Fort Worth Convention center through Saturday, June 9, 2012.

The Liberty Live Stream Team's news anchor, Brian Young, will continue to seek out interviews with Texas delegates and alternates and attendees at the convention.

Included in the archives to date are TWO speeches from Ron Paul, one at the convention Thursday, June 7, 2012, and another that evening at the Jordan Paige concert. An archived interview with Jordan Paige, (it's his birthday as well), appears in the archives for your enjoyment at your leisure. Over 1,000 Live Viewers were on the channel today.

This Live Stream will be produced with "mobile Wifi" bandwidth settings and will strive to produce the smoothest stream and the best audio that can be achieved while minimizing the impact of high-bandwidth video streaming demands. The $99.00 per day, premium convention bandwidth package will provide the team with a 1.3 megaBIT upstream link. Please consider chipping in to defray cost for the 3 days the Team will Stream. http://suriyahfish.chipin...

The LLST, by traveling to Fort Worth, Texas to provide this Live Streaming coverage of the Texas convention is going to considerable financial expense and expense of time. Please, consider supporting this Live Stream event by promoting the event on facebook and through twitter and any other resources you may have available and chipping in.

Please be sure to include the channel URL in your promotions: http://www.ustream.tv/cha... and/or the chipin URL, http://suriyahfish.chipin...

This Live Stream, on Ustream, will have both the "Social Stream" and the "Chat" features enabled. Many people in the Ustream Live audience will not be posting to the chat or the social stream, they will be there to watch and listen to the Live Stream and convention events and play by play commentary that will be provided at times.

Children and minors are watching and attending the Live Stream, the channel will be moderated for language and content, (warn, warn, kick, warn, kick, ban).

Some highlights from Dr. Paul's speech in Ft Worth:

The following is quoted from "Will Ron Paul's battle transform the party?" by Luke Montgomery.

"When Paul was introduced, the crowd gave him the rock star welcome anyone following the Republican primary has seen dozens of times. Shouts of “President Paul” and “End the Fed” reverberated throughout the arena.

This wasn’t just agreement or support for a candidate’s electability or likeability. It bordered on fanaticism. The energy and passion expressed for this old veteran stood in stark contrast to the reception speakers received earlier that day.

Once the audience had calmed down, Congressman Paul prefaced his remarks by saying that he had been asked to speak on uniting the party and balancing the budget. Not a strange request given the fact that his fiscal conservatism is almost as well known as the fact that dissension within the Republican Party primarily emanates from the ideas he has championed.

But Paul made it clear that he wasn’t going to play ball, or shall we call it what it is - politics.

His speech was a virtual litany of the positions that have defined his candidacy, and there was no hint of compromise. Instead, he said, “Unity is important but what do we unify behind? No Child Left Behind? What about uniting around principle, around the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence?”

First, he talked about the Federal Reserve and how he hoped Congress would be voting on a bill in July to require a full audit of the institution. (one-minute standing ovation) He said, “People ask me who I’m running against and I tell them I’m not running against Obama. I’m running against Keynes. (wild cheering and standing ovation)

“The status quo cannot continue. We have an explosion of debt and devaluation of the currency. When the crisis comes, like it has to Greece, we must have people of principle in Washington.”

He went on to address foreign policy, which many have viewed as his Achilles heel. This time he used President Eisenhower to frame the discussion. He pointed out that Eisenhower had, against the advice of his counselors, followed a course very much like the one Paul was advocating - ending the Korean war, refusing to enter Vietnam or use the bomb against the Chinese.

The point was clear. Freedom means respect for the sovereignty of other nations. Republicans had done it before. They could do it again. (standing ovation)

He railed on the president and the government for limiting personal liberty and made special reference to President Obama's "kill list." He criticized eroding civil liberties and the violations of due process. Again, his remarks elicited a standing ovation.

In fact, there were so many standing ovations during the speech one could hardly keep count. The seats in the arena seemed almost pointless. These people had come ready for battle, and Paul was their champion leading the charge.

On issue after issue, the congressman hammered home his message that freedom is the answer, not government, that individual liberties were the basis of a wealthy and prosperous nation, not a welfare state that impoverishes the middle class, decimates the poor and empowers the rich.

He said that his positions were often criticized as ideas that would take the country back not forward. His answer was simple. “My ideas do come from the founding fathers. Gold and silver are still legal tender according to the Constitution. But big government, now that, is a very very old idea. There are those who say government is the answer, but they are the past; we are the future.”

He concluded his remarks by saying that there was only one message which would unite the Republican Party and that message was freedom."

Now that's the Paul we know and LOVE.
