Only Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul can inspire THREE events on behalf of Ideals he's championed for over 40yrs!

Oh, and they all coincide around the time of his 77th birthday (August 20, 2012)!

'Ron Paul Plans His Own RNC Event To Calm the Waters'

Posted on June 20, 2012 by Lew Rockwell

There will be at least 3 notable meetings in Tampa in August: the RNC Fascisticon, the campaign's Ron Paul Rally, and the grassroots' Ron Paul Festival.

According to the Tampa Tribune, "Libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul is planning his activities at the Republican National Convention in Tampa with an eye to making sure his supporters are part of the mainstream GOP process and not a disruptive force, a top campaign official said Tuesday.

"Partly for that reason, Paul intends to hold his own rally the Sunday before the convention and avoid a three-day Paul Festival to be held at the state fairgrounds – even though the event is intended to celebrate his 77th birthday."

My prediction: Ron will not snub a happy gathering of people devoted to him heart and soul. But, as I have mentioned a number of times, everyone should behave. The Republicans would love to taser or gas and cage Paulians. If you are going to the police-state hellhole of Tampa in August, give the enemy no excuse to harm you.

Better yet, just copy Ron Paul: a gentleman of civility and peace, but tough as nails on his principles.

Ron Paul plans his own RNC event to calm the waters

TAMPA, FL -- Libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul is planning his activities at the Republican National Convention in Tampa with an eye to making sure his supporters are part of the mainstream GOP process and not a disruptive force, a top campaign official said Tuesday.

Partly for that reason, Paul intends to hold his own rally the Sunday before the convention and avoid a three-day Paul Festival to be held at the state fairgrounds – even though the event is intended to celebrate his 77th birthday.

A third libertarian-oriented event also is being planned to precede the convention. Competition or overlap among the three is likely.

** While I 'get' Lew Rockwell's genuine concerns for our safety, the murderous govt statists and its enablers and militant lackeys are gonna do what they're gonna do; there are no amount of 'don't give them any excuse to do you harm' that will prevent a sociopath for being just what they are: sociopaths.

So, obviously, to those attending, be vigilant, stay in pairs or large groups, and EXERCISE your natural rights as you see fit.

No cowering. Go raise hell. Go SCORCHED EARTH.

Being 'civil' is what a gentleman like Dr. Paul whose values were forged during the Great Depression, simply is as a person, and promotes as a human being.

So to those even among my beloved r3VOL who've interpreted 'being civil' to mean 'sit down and shut up,' not so; even Dr. Paul himself has CLEARLY stated: "be civil, but that doesn't mean you should let yourselves be be pushed around." Do you honestly believe a 76year old septuagenarian is gonna ASK you to be rowdy? Get real. Our Man's from a more civil era. His NATURE is a gentlemanly one. But, do not mistake being a gentleman to mean, 'be a doormat.'

Be Civil, but Be ASSERTIVE is his message.

So, while we strive best to represent him and his values as far as within the confines of the RP2012 campaign context, but in the end, as most of y'all know, this isn't 'just' about the RP2012 campaign. This IS about YOU, not just about Dr. Paul, the best messenger of human freedoms we've ever had the pleasure of witnessing.

So I'd say, kindly take heed and respect our Gray Champ's wishes the best you can. But, do what you MUST, regardless, IMHO.

I voted you up first because of the attitude in the title. I also liked you pointing out being civil and gentlemanly is not equivalant to sit down and shut up. Immature and impatient people seem to always confuse this.

I have a great book by an ancient Karate master. He won all his fights without ever fighting. Sometimes by understanding the opponenents problems, sometimes by instilling fear, and various other ways - depending on who and what he was up against.

I respectfully disagree here with AnCap and

those who express similar emotions. We have come as far as we have as a movement by holding as our standard the r3VOLution. It is the cornerstone of Ron Paul's example, it is what is most needed at this point in history.
All over the globe peaceable liberty-longing individuals are trapped by brutal mercenaries working for psychopaths. The have brainwashed the fearful, obedient sheep who tremble before power and a collapsing future.

Our one effective weapon has always been our peaceable, positive, rational, fact-based message corroborated by history and current events. The Empire and its international cohorts are collapsing before our eyes, but no one can predict the time table.

Maybe events will bring the world to the brink soon or perhaps the total control freaks will manage public opinion and boil the frogs slowly enough to keep them quiet in the pot.

Our message will not be heard through a cacophonous riot and from being labeled terrorists and even resisters. We have to override THEIR methods with better tactics and our message of REAL love and security in liberty and peace. Keep our movement SAFE by sticking with our own creative and unexpected and unique peaceable demonstration of how positive rEVOLutionaries walk the high ground and out-think those who rely on coercion.

I'm with you on this. I am going in support of RP and all of

the delegates who have fought so hard to go to Tampa. I am NOT going to
protest anything or anyone. I will protest with my vote and with my activism in my community and C4L. Those whose plans are to be disruptive are not TRUE Paul supporters.
