Paulfest has not become Garyfest grow up already, Chuck Baldwin may speak, will it then become Baldwin fest?

It is really sad that some have decided to play conquer and divide. If anyone remebers Gary Johnson was invited to speak at the rally for the republic, he has constantly endorsed Ron Paul, he has even stated that if Ron Paul won the nomination he would support him. I disagree with a lot of what Johnson's positions are and I am supporting Ron Paul but that does not mean he shouldn't be allowed to speak at a paul festival.

Chuck Baldwin was invited to speak at revolution march even though Chuck was also running for President at the same time, to which Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin when he didn't win the nomination, I don't see a difference here in any way.

Are we trying to grow the movement or not? Should we only have the collective at this event or, should we be talking with a lot more people that we disagree with and educate them? I personally have no desire to just preach to the choir, I am looking for the uneducated to make them wake up to the message of liberty.

The mindset that this has become Garyfest is just insane, because one guy may get 30 minutes of a 3 day event to speak and it is now his event is one og the dumbest things I have ever heard. It will hurt the delegates, WHAT? Does anyone that is a delegate for Ron Paul not going to vote for him because Gary Johnson has a 30 minute speaking spot? How is this not nonsense to everyone? What if Ralph Nader was asked to speak? Would it become Naderfest? Stop being so afraid of interacting with people that disagree with you, I once was not on the Paul bandwagon as many of you, isn't it time we try to wake people up instead of isolating them and closing the door?

It is really sad that some are so short sighted about growing the liberty movement.

You don't support paulfest that's fine, but to bash the same people that brought all of you the revolution march in 2008 which helped spark this movement is really unwarranted.

Chuck was always a strong

Chuck was always a strong conservative and paleolibertarian. Chuck understood the need for the gold standard and why the fed should be ended.

Gary has no knowledge of economics and is pretty much a liberal on many social issues. He also ran against Paul in the primaries.

Freedom baby! Yes the Paul Fest Sound Great!

Its what the big r3VOLution is about.

This Liberty Movement is a BIGGER umbrella than the LP or even the GOP.

I hope Paulfest is a smash! I hope it GROWS.

I hope they have it EVERY YEAR in Ron Paul's name.

And Ron Paul SHOULD GO, if he can't well then he can't. But it is in his honor and it is all about Freedom.

After all, "If you're not having fun selling freedom, then you're not doing it right!"

Count me in! Freeeeeeedddddoooooooommmm!

PS. Just be thankful people. If you cannot celebrate freedom in Tampa celebrate it in your own way. Make a Party in Paul's name. Invite your buddies, post the pics on Facebook and Youtube and tell all your other friends how AWESOME it was.

PSS. You know, be thankful that Pat Robertson and Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee is NOT having a "Moral Family Values" event at the same time. Their numbers would dwarf ours 10 to 1.

No thanks

This isn't the same as 4 years ago. This convention weekend may bring an opportunity to put Ron's name on the floor for nomination. Not quite the same, we need to focus that week!

If waves do get made in Tampa, Ron Paul supporters don't need to help the media spin our movement as working with the LP. We are going to Tampa for the GOP convention. I know I will have no interest in listening to any other presidential candidates stump speeches in August.

Well considering I am NOT a RP delegate -- sadly

I will "focus" on having a blast celebrating Freedom!

After all, if you are not having FUN selling Freedom, then you are not doing it right!

Debbie's picture

It doesn't seem right as Johnson is running against Ron Paul

this time. I don't get it.

Debbie

So will Ron Paul be there or

So will Ron Paul be there or not? This is the question that will decide if I go or not, I need a 100% yes or no. Are there any major events planned besides this one, its very confusing with all the comments. Is this for Ron Paul or for Gary Johnson?

I don't know if Paul is

I don't know if Paul is legally allowed to be at the Paul festival. They could use the "Super-pac" campaign laws to strike at him just for being near anyone from the Super-pac. It's stupid, yes, but I would not be surprised if they pulled that.

Johnson Fest...

Has a much better ring to it, don't you think?

I cant tell if OP is trolling or just this naive

OP: "It will hurt the delegates, WHAT? Does anyone that is a delegate for Ron Paul not going to vote for him because Gary Johnson has a 30 minute speaking spot? "

Use your brain, its not our delegates it will hurt, why the frick wouldnt they vote for Ron Paul... smh. Its the NON Ron Paul delegates that will be propagandized. You little Libertarian Party Gary Johnson fanboys need to put a cork in it. YOU HAVE POTENTIAL TO RUIN THIS IN THE VERY CRUCIAL MOMENTS LEADING UP TO THE NOMINATION wait your damn turn. MSM and GOP establishment will have a field day with this sort of dumba$$ery. THEY DONT LIKE RON PAUL ENOUGH ALREADY. We dont need you Gary Johnson effboys to give them ammo. So back out of our business. We didnt interfere with your parties nomination process, yours isnt chrony like ours. Where we climb mountains, yall lazyboy quarterbacks in comparison. Ron Paul is light years ahead of Gary in being able to defeat Obama and Romney. IF YOU RUIN THIS I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU if this ends up on msm or used against Pauls credibility of those who no offense, matter, and thats the delegates that need to be converted into one of us Ron Paul supporters. NOW STOP HATING ON RON PAUL.

Using my brain.

I second that. Someone at Paul Fest is doing their best to destoy our Revolution.

Bravo natenathanaelgr...!

Bravo, the non Ron Paul delegates WILL be propagandized by garyfest.

Thanks for the post...

... the Romenybots have invaded Daily Paul and causing unnecessary dissent. Any friend of liberty is my friend. Liberty means all-inclusiveness. Go Ron go. Go Gary go.

Plano TX

flame on

WE ARE RONBOTS you are NOT you -insert demeaning phrase here-. GTFO. You CLEARLY dont want Ron Paul to win by your actions. We know when we are getting lip service we are in the GOP lol... From my view, you are wanting Gary to run against Obama and Romney, and he doesnt have the grassroots to win this election therefore you are perfectly OK with OBAMNEY. Ron Paul is still in this race so buzz off fake trickboy.

Is Sarah Palin gonna be there?

:P

And tell me again

Why another candidate has to speak at the Paul Revolution Party? This is the rudest thing evah! RUDE RUDE RUDE TO HAVE GARY WHAT THE FREAK SPEAK AT THE FEST. Grow the freak up peeps. This is against decorum. NOW FIX IT!

Keepin' it real.

I think it is you that needs to grow up.

Gary Johnson is going to speak for a few minutes and I am sure he will be praising Ron Paul and our efforts. Out of 3 days of music and fun, Gary will get maybe 30 minutes. I feel that people bashing him is so inappropriate.
We were all pissed with the way Ron was treated by the msm last time around and again this time around. Well Gary Johnson has had the same treatment or worse and I guess you are all okay with that. Well I am not. When the media gets to decide who can run and who can be in the debates.... we have a very big problem.
Ron is my first choice but will vote for Gary if Ron is not the nominee.

Formerly rprevolutionist

Gary Johnson spoke at the Rally For The Republic 4 years ago

Seems like you are new to the Movement.
Jesse Ventura also spoke at RP's rally in Minnesota.
And he endorsed GJ.

Lol

You don't see any difference from 4 years ago...lmao

The organizers should be able

The organizers should be able to call it whatever they want....the ideas and reason for the PaulFest will NOT change....some of you are SOo-o-o silly!

Organizers, please

change the name of this event to LibertyFest or anything. Get Ron Paul's name off of it. Please, we are begging you. Ron is not even going to be there and it would only be right to call this Ron Paulfest if the speakers were there to talk about Ron Paul.

Do you think Gary Johnson is going to be talking about Ron Paul?

John F

Please

do not include others in your collective "we"

Formerly rprevolutionist

I'm not asking your permission.

Without including you, there is still a very large "we" that doesn't want Ron Paul's name associated with GaryFest. That's what it has become, GaryFest. By "we" I don't have to be including everyone else on the planet. There is a we. Bug off.

John F

i second this.

Please include me in any PRO Ron Paul uses of "we", "us", and "RONbot" exclude those who arent in it to win it for RON PAUL. They wanna call heads, then I call tails. I bet large sum on Paul please. Thank you

i third it

No mutiny...No ship jumping...No disrespect for Ron Paul. No Paulfest

fonta

We have a group here who will vote for Romney

These guys vote down all Gary Johnson threads.
Romney folks are terrified -- they know Johnson could cut the legs from under Romney's campaign.
A few Paul supporters joined them in attacks on GJ supporters -- sadly.

I'll not be voting for Romney

but all the Gary Johnson "fans" on this site have convinced me that I'll NOT be voting for GJ either.

Baldwin

is not running for president against Dr. Paul.
Gary Johnson WILL actively be seeking possible votes for his candidacy..
There is a difference in your comparison.

A hughe and unacceptable

A hughe and unacceptable difference. Simply, you are using Ron Paul name to endorse competing candidate. Pls do not play mind games with this, it is so obvious.

"Chuck Baldwin ***WAS***

"Chuck Baldwin ***WAS*** invited to speak at revolution march even though Chuck ***WAS*** also running for President at the same time..."

The poster is talking about 2008 compared to now.

Yes

Chuck Baldwin was invited to Revolution March in 2008- he INTRODUCED Dr. Paul. Is Gary Johnson going to promote Dr Paul in his speech - or himself? Time will tell.
