I'll take GJ over Robombney any day of the week

Wish Ron could win

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Who was it that said...

If you can't dance then it's not a revolution.

There will be a lot of liberty lovers at Paulfest. I don't see any need in putting them down. As a matter of fact, someone posted a quote from Ron Paul the other day thanking the organizers for giving them consideration to avoid scheduling conflicts.

This anti-Paulfest stuff is silly. Why not go have a good time?

People that are trying to talk down other people for going to Paulfest are by implications of their actions being divisive.

Dancing at The Sun-Dome, on Sunday..

..Is gonna be fun.
The Speakers..The Lineup of Entertainment.
...and it will be "truly" a Ron Paul Event...additionally:

Many here are not "talking down" the "Paul-Fest-Partiers", but have expressed concern for the pitfalls to the campaign that are inherent.

MSM will try to "smear" those attendees if given half the chance,and that is widely known and accepted...so we are all concerned as this can discredit the RON PAUL Movement.

We are all praying for all to be cautious, careful and above all:
.......SAFE............
Infiltrators will be everywhere...in downtown Tampa...at Sun-Dome, and most certainly at Paul-Fest.
They are "sitting ducks". Any other notion is a fallacy.
So Paul-Festers?....Please be careful.

Well said, Danton.

There are a few die hards bashing PaulFest but, I wonder if they aren't the PTB controlled opposition.

My concern about PaulFest was always that they are "sitting ducks", blisfully unaware of the forces of TPTB ready to act against them in the blink of an eye. They really should take the Boy Scout Motto to heart.

PS - Don't worry about the email. I just wanted to know that you really are alright and I see that you are, thank God. If the situation gets corrected, I will email you again, just so you can have my address.

Waddid I say?

Sheesh... So sorry you find my concern for the well being of people attending PaulFest offensive!

Rally exciting?

So you're excited to hear Doug Wead and Jack Hunter? Zzzzzzz.

As Excited As You Are

To kiss Gary Johnson's butt. LOL!..

Didn't Gary co-write "I Libertine"?
Think he at least endorsed it in the liner notes.

Oh... snap!

Great comment there, Danton.

Signing off now. See ya tomorrow with coffee, since you won't be here later tonight, you old night owl. LOL

The only thing to fear...

is fear itself.

Liberty lovers need not fear anything. I would expect there to be some disruptions at both of the rallies; The Establishment will make sure of it.

No reason to be fearful.

And That, My Fearless Friend

..Is right up there with:

The "I Triple-Dog-Dare-You" mindset.

Schoolyard mentality....and boastful recklessness.
I was young like you once...but I learned.

p.s.
Interesting that you quote a "progressive war-monger" such as FDR.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

And...

how can you make any assumptions about my age or maturity?

I've never found it fruitful to be scared of anything. Maybe my upbringing and large stature have prevented me from developing a fear of what might happen. I face reality head-on and handle each situation as I judge appropriate.

Fear and vigilance...

are two separate things. One does not require the other.

Not being fearful is not being boastful and reckless. If people are aware of the potential actions of the Establishment, plans can be made to reveal them as the underhanded people they are.

Someone even made a post about it - http://www.dailypaul.com/248588/be-mindful-of-plants-in-tamp...

It's the only thing FDR said....

that I happen to agree with. It's how the government gets its way.

FDR was the worst president in history, IMO. Lincoln may be a tie.

I Agree On the Presidents

Statement...although was "programmed" from a early age to worship the "man who freed the slaves".
By the time I reached 7th grade, I had a social studies teacher who derailed the notion of the Civil War being fought over slavery.
My teacher also informed us of the "fiat money" system.

So..people can change their views based upon information received.

Maybe you can also...I'm rooting for you.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

I don't need any of my views changed...

You don't even know me. Why did you say that?

I'm glad you had a good 7th grade history teacher. I had to learn through my own research. As an adult, teachers go away and people have to be responsible for their own intake of information. Sometimes I wonder how many folks have even read any of Ron Paul's books. I often hear - "Reading is not my thing" - like people should trust what others have told them from their reading.

I probably have more informed opinions than most - not because I'm any better or more capable, but because I read a lot.

I see RP and GJ as being very close.

If Ron does not win the GOP nimination I believe he will endorse GJ and will even campaign for him. GJ is waaaaayyyyyyyy better than MittWitt or Barry O.

The lot lesser of three evils is still evil.

Dr. Paul can endorse whoever he wants or not endorse anyone. My vote is not based on any endorsement from anyone, since I have a mind of my own and am able to do my own homework on any candidate.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”
―Emmet Fox

so...Gary Johnson is evil?

So if Ron Paul is not on the ballot and you have a republican, a democrat, a green party, a libertarian, or a constitution party, which of those will your conscience allow you to vote for?

And That, Nonna..

..Is a truly "individual" opinion, endorsements are pure BS.
CASE in POINT:
"Rand Paul endorsement of Romney"...
p.s.
I'm still trying to get the email connected, and have asked the Mods about this..it's frustrating.

Hope you had a good day yesterday...and another today!

Hey, Danton!....

Notice the Frederick Ewing band of I Libertine lovers here? LOL

Thanks, I did have a good day yesterday and hubby and I are going to great dinner party to celebrate with the family this evening. The funny thing is that I forgot all about it, until I got the invitation... Talk about having senior moments!

Have a Great Time

And we will hafta "hang in there" to monitor you-know-who.
Hunting is such wonderful sport!
See ya at coffee tomorrow....making Tampa-Time Plans tonite.

God Bless...Welcome to the "age of forget, not regret". LOL!

In my opinion NO Paul supporter should be at Paulfest.
as far as I know, Dr. Paul was not consulted prior to this and did not lend his name to this. Paul is too humble to say anything other then proper respect, but it was clear from the beginning to anyone who knows Ron Paul: this was not his idea and he DISTANCED himself from it QUICKLY!
I think Paul supporters should do the same.
(besides the paulfest people over exaggerated Pauls excitement and they even say he agrees with the festival and Ive never heard him say that. The fest leaders over emphasize Pauls agreement to this, and I can certainly see that. Personally I think it was about about capitalism, but i think it has backfired because they expected Paul to speak and now cant even give the tickets away.i
and that gigi bowman and LL relationship on line here makes me want to BARF! Its so fake.

While others are at the fest, I will be wandering around Tampa and providing slim jims and platform literature, on behalf of Ron Paul- to anyone who will accept them. Then I will stand along the route that Paul(campaign) directs us to and sign wave.
I take my marching orders from Ron Paul. Never has he asked his supporters to go to Paulfest, however he did ask us to go to the sundome, and me and mine will be there.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

Our movement a cult?

When people say the Ron Paul movement is a cult, they have you in mind. "Ron Paul has not told me to attend a festival full of people who love him, so I shall not go!" You are making us all look certifiable.

.

If you really loved him you would NOT go.

Ron has provided a time and place for fun.
The rest should be ALL business.
There is NO reason to go to Paulfest. NONE.
send a paul delegate your paulfest ticket money instead.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

If They REALLY Loved Ron Paul

..They would not go....Game;Set;Match!

That, my friend....says it all.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........

Would it be possible

if Ron does't get the GOP nomination that Gary Johnson would step aside and have Paul take over and then become Paul's VP?

Don't think that Paul would

Don't think that Paul would do that.

But I think GJ would drop out if Paul won.

Great News!!!

...media is now picking up on GJ headlining his own festival and PaulFest.

They should have a hey day with that. My worst fears now are happening.

Congratulations mutineers (ship jumpers)...

Yep, like Doug Wead said...you have to be careful what you lend your name to. I wish the lawyers for Oklahoma would answer my question: "Is it legal to use a political candidate's name without his permission and for exploitation by another political party and candidate?"

I've said before... The minute Dr. Paul says he is all for PaulFest...doesn't mind his name being used now that the 3rd party speaker line-up is out...and he would LOVE to be a part of it and urge his Republican delegates to stand their ground...then I will be for it. But not until then.

fonta

What ship are we jumping from?

I've been on the Liberty Ship since the mid 80's and I am still on the Liberty Ship.
