Delegates, be very careful in the police state of Tampa. Ordinances attached.

Delegates, family of delegates and visitors to Tampa are encouraged to very carefully read the new ordinance in order to protect yourselves from revenue-generating police. During the convention, it is a crime to possess tape, light bulbs, any container containing any liquid, solid or gas, a piece of wood, a jack handle in your trunk, any sharp object and many other items considered otherwise normal. Also, should your group assemble into a unit larger than 50 people and you do not have the required permit, you are committing a crime. The police can determine on the spot if you are guilty and the prosecutor will sort out your intent at a later date. The penalties for violating any of the items under this ordinance are punishable with a fine of $500 and/or 60 days in jail. My guess is the City of Tampa wants your $500 more than they want to put you in jail. The lady I spoke to asked if I had ever heard of 9/11 and all these measures are completely justified and necessary, in order to keep us safe.

idk what parts your allowed to bring weapons for self defense. but any area you can do it, not only to protect yourselves from the pigs but also radical protestors that are not in the Paul movement. if the police see the people are legally armed they will watch themselves. your general cop is a coward why do you think they engage one person almost always in groups? if they can easily pick you they will and if its hard for them they won't the occupy wall street has shown that. if people stand together and dearrest like they do than they won't and can't.

"all these measures are completely justified and necessary,

in order to keep us safe."

But who's going to keep us safe from the cops??

Pop Quiz.

Container: "An object that can be used to hold or transport something."

Can anybody name a 'container' that every human possesses, which was designed specifically to transport a combination of solids, liquids and gases at various times?

I hope for the sake of decency that the police don't make everyone empty these containers onto the ground at Tampa.

* Yes, this post is as silly as the rules being proposed as Tampa. Fight stupidity with comedy.

Someone needs to tell Romney

Someone needs to tell Romney that the only way to avoid a repeat of the 1968 Democratic Convention is to nominate Ron Paul.


I hope it doesn't happen this way, but I wouldn't be surprised. I think Ron Paul definitely needs to speak publicly before the convention and emphasize non-aggressive action.

I pray that never happens again!

It has been weighing heavily on my mind for several months now. I remember the 1968 Democrat Convention very well. I will never forget what happened in Chicago in 1968. Those images stayed with me ever since and have been brought to the forefront with this election cycle. I fear it could be much, much worse now and I believe Dr. Paul remembers, too. Hence, the reason for being asked to be respectful. A bitter pill to swallow right now. But, I understand it.

See my comment below for parts 2, 3 and 4 of the video you posted. I left out part 1 for time sake but, don't recommend watching it until the younger generations watch 2 - 4 first.

Anyone who plans on being

Anyone who plans on being part of a march or mass protest in tampa should be wearing a motorcycle helmet and goggles. I think Dr. Paul is afraid that his supporters will be attacked by the police and that it will turn into a violent event with thousnands being hurt or even killed. I think that is the reason he said to be respectful and the reason he said that we will not be able to get enough delegates for him to become the nominee. He is trying to get his supporters to calm down a little bit to prevent a war in tampa.

Uhhh...no. that is not what they are doing. You don't need to be proven guilty to get a ticket. Or even arrested. That is not how the justice system has EVER worked, nor should it since it would mean no one would ever be arrested or ticketed.

Perhaps it would be more to your taste

to say recent peaceable demonstrations have shown that militarized thugs costumed as police will brutally suppress freedom of expression with no legal accountability for the brutes and no effective legal recourse for the abused?

"Also, should your group

"Also, should your group assemble into a unit larger than 50 people and you do not have the required permit, you are committing a crime.

So if there are thousands assembled as a unit at the convention, does that mean they all are committing a crime? ha ha....just kidding

Watch, listen, and learn.

The stage is being set for history to repeat itself. I believe Dr. Paul knows this and remembers 1968 as well as I do. This would explain his comments about being respectful.

I've posted these before and am posting them again. It's that important. If you missed them, please take the time to bookmark and watch, listen and learn:

"any container containing any

"any container containing any liquid, solid or gas"

The convention center is a container and each delegate is a combination of solids, liquids, and gasses... so that can't be good.

Wouldn't it be easier for police to simply state that you are not allowed to carry solids, liquids or gasses?

Yes, I agree.
