Very cool. So glad you made that go right!!

You are an incredible team.


Really hate to say this BUT,

Really hate to say this BUT, please check the Tampa Times article that came out this afternoon before you book anything. The reporter spoke to the RNC TODAY, late this afternoon, who claims as of late this afternoon, that the Fairgrounds has NOT been released to Paul Festival. That's today, this afternoon, Wednesday June 13, 2012 notwithstanding what the event organizers are saying publicly at their website and putting out news.

Freedom Festival or Ron Paul Festival?!

What is going on with the double booking? Am I missing something here?

Viva la R3VOLution!!!

Republican Party is Blocking the Paul Festival in Tampa

Unfortunately the Republican Party seems to be blocking or delaying the Paul Festical in Tampa so some Florida Ron Paul supporters have rented another venue between Tampa and Orlando. See you there!

No the post is that

the venue has now been booked

A war.

Between two factions of, well..., something....

And a note to both factions -

If these event promotion threads become a punch fest between the two again, both venues will be permanently booted from posting about it on DP.

I've about had it up to my ass with both of them and the quibbling.


Are you a mod? Please note Paul Festival has no intention of quibbling and I will give you all our names of our board that are on Daily Paul so you can see we won't post on their threads. We can't stop them from doing anything or just random supporters of either event but please note official Paul Festival organizers will not participate in any negative comments or posting on their threads. Please tell me how you would like show you our good faith so we don't get booted from the DP. I have been hear for 4 years and would hate to be booted cause people can't be respectful.

I'm not

getting into the middle of it Hoot.

My job is one job - Daily Paul. It comes first. Because it's Michael's ass that's on the line when we receive complaints, etc. And unfortunately when it comes to those type of circumstances I don't screw around.

My tolerance is now at Zero.

I'm not letting him down. I will maintain this site through this absolutely chaotic period in some form of order, whether it makes people dislike me or not.

Sounds reasonable

I enjoy DP and respect MN. You have my word you won't find me causing you any trouble in these post. And I will not comment on their post.

Hope to see you there.



just set a reminder

Can't wait, see you all in Tampa!

My two cents: shoot for quality

I am there, don't worry!

But here's some advice from my armchair for the hard-working organizers:

Try to make the lineup the best you can with the given resources. Don't just get a bunch of friendly political bands and artists. The fest needs to be promote the libertarian movement and it will, but it also needs to be GOOD.



Any band announcements?

Rage against the machine would be epic!

Rise Against

Anyone know where these guys stand? They were at the "Get The Vote Out Rally In Wisconsin" event with Tom Morello of RATM, but I'm having trouble finding out who/what that event was aimed at.

bikers will be riding to the Paul Festival so connect up:

party time!


Revolution Travel Management wants to coordinate with you guys for the trip to Tampa! Specifically, we'd like to offer you the opportunity to store your luggage/belongings in travel trailers that Ronvoy vehicles will tow behind them from various cities across the nation! That way you don't have to worry about how much you can carry.

We're working on a way to coordinate it so that you will be given a luggage tag, that corresponds to the tag that is placed on your luggage/belongings. You would just meet up with the Ronvoy in whatever departure city, store your belongings, and then HOPEFULLY you will travel along the highways all the way to Tampa, alongside Ronvoy and Rides for Ron Paul vehicles!

I will be providing the Rides for Ron Paul guys with a list of all the departure cities when its complete, along with the departure times for each city, so that we can all coordinate together.

Can't wait to see everyone in Tampa!

I'm in the CO delegation and would love to hook up with the Ronvoy. I'm already a member of the Rev Riders, so hopefully I'll be able to keep up with the news!

Tampa bound for RP baby!

I am going live on Ron Paul Radio

at 9 PM Eastern!

Will there be any marches at Paulfest?

Just an idea...

I was too young for Woodstock

Just as Woodstock was a part of history I sense Paulfest will be on par or eclipse Woodstock for historical standing. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to INCLUDE yourself/family/friends as part of that history. Fly, car pool, bus, Ronvoy, bike, walk, just be there! :)



Label Jars, Not People!


I will see you there!

This is a front pager btw.
