Paulfest News!

Looks like greed prevails over principle once again. Will refunds be available or just exchanged for Garyfest tickets?

Show your numbers at the official RP Rally. Save your money for the 'real' festival in Tampa. I was going to go, but RP needs me at his rally which is cheaper and a sincere birthday celebration for Ron Paul.

Ron Paul entertainers and speakers, we are sorry you got duped and please consider attending an actual Ron Paul festival.

Why spend your hard earned sweat and talent attracting support for a bait and switch event?

I'm sure your amazing talent and support for Ron Paul will be appreciated in places that actually fully support 'Ron Paul'

Thank you Garyfest for screwing over Ron Paul supporters once again, right before Tampa.

I felt the die was cast when

the other festival (libertyfest?) popped up. I think if there had just been one then Paul may have appeared.

I can't help but laugh out loud

everytime I see the word "GaryFest." It just sounds so ridiculous : ))

Someone else called it "Crapfest" and I'm inclined to agree. It is indeed a bait-and-switch. I won't go and listen to the altogether unexceptional, uninspiring Gary Johnson as he tries to woo everyone on the rebound.

Don't fall for it, people! Robby Wells, Buddy L, Gary J...they are doing the Establishment's bidding, actively trying to keep us from scoring at the National Convention! They know that we can still win. As the poster said, go to the real Ron Paul event because he wants to have a little talk with his delegates...

Obviously I Feel The Same Way

...but it is beginning to feel lonely in Dr. Paul's corner. Is it really his birthday?

Not that it matters...sounds like his birthday party from supporters is to for all practical purposes hand over what is left of his legacy to others AT the time and event where we have been told to support our RP delegates and those running for office in the Republican Party and who have secured so many important posts for down the road.

I say "NO" ...I won't abandon them. If I were Mitt Romney or the Republican Party...I would be loving this. I am not. And, I am sad.

Yes, I do understand *the timing.* Our political capital is at the highest now... We are the most valuable...and the most susceptible to group think as well as the most vulnerable.


He will be 77

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

Great Birthday gift from garyfest

I was reffering to the Paul Festival

they announced they would have some sort of RP Birthday celebration, not the official Rally

I believe this was stated in an article

in the Tampa Tribune. However I have not been able to find any other reference to it and it is not on the calendar at the official campaign website. Do you have any corroborative information on it?

His birthday is August 20.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)


"We want to have a birthday celebration for him," said Deborah Robinet of California, chief organizer of the event. "We are his movement. We consider him the founding father of our movement."


Isn't that what the Tea Party said. . .

. . .then endorsed and put Herman Cain out there as their candidate?

Nice move.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. ~Thomas Jefferson

“It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie...the greatest enemy of the State.” ~Joseph Goebbels

That is the same source in another location.

But I guess you have already detected that. My thought was it might be a deliberate hoax which is why I am looking for confirmation.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

I only had one source

still checking on more

can't be the only article

So Sad

I seriously feel like crying as I did when

-twice I tried to start a Happy Father's Day thread to Dr. Paul. Took the first down as there was so much negativity on the DP. Put it up again and nobody responded.

-special (and now I know it would be birthday present) thank you gift of an incredible bike with sterling silver name place also died on the vine.

What I will continue to do is to teach my children and grandchildren about the man I admire most in 63 years. I will also pray that down the road there will be another and people will listen.

I know he is just a man...but, to me, there has never been another like him.

Thank you for our brief exchange. I don't feel so alone! And, my perception is that you know the Paul family. If so, surround him with love...he deserves it.
