Between the lack of fundraising for Paulfest and the blowback here and elsewhere, I would say that the promoters are witnessing a free market reaction to a product the customers refuse to buy. If I were the organizers I would take these concerns seriously, and either address them formally or listen to the customers. Otherwwise you will be caught holding the bag on an embarrassing expensive event...
People need to quit bashing GJ. Ron Paul lost the race, now you can either vote for mitt, obama, or Gary, or someone else. But besides ron paul Gary is the best person running. Do people forget ron held the press conference in 2008 encouraging us to support and get together with the other parties. I think i remember nader, mckinney, baldwin being there and ron saying we need to all work together. Ron LOST i hate to say it but he LOST, now quit bashing the next best guy running.
We are not bashing GJ, we are bashing the promotion of GJ here and elsewhere BEFORE THE CONVENTION. If this were September, no ne would care. But it's not. Out of respect to RP, stop promoting Johnson, and see he is disinvited from GaryFest
to you. With a capital.
f it. I'd vote for Roseanne Barr first. GJ is a mess. He'll get a couple thousand votes is all. RON IS STILL IN IT TO WIN IT AND YOU ARE A ROMNEY TROLL
Ron Paul is da man.
lol yea im a romney troll. For so many people here claiming to be so woken up and smart about the issues they sure are dumb as f on common sense. Ron Lost, he said it everybody knows it except for the cult like supporters who cant rap their heads around reality. Ron LOST, next up is gary johnson. The candidate besides Obama and Mitt to get the next highest votes will rub off of whoever wins because next time they know they have to fight for that chunk of support, if its spread out between all the third party candidates then there wont be a huge chunk that they care to try and get next time. Pull ur head out of your ass, im sick of seeing delusional people on here. Facts are facts, Paul LOST and hes retiring from politics in January. WTF do you expect to do!!!! Keep promoting freedom but ron is not going to be the one who gets it for us. Quit being selfish
And what are you going to do when ron goes out and writes a letter in early November saying he is going to vote for Gary, just like he did for Chuck in 2008. Thats whats gonna happen, im bout done with this site it gets dumber by the day.
Ron has asked us to stick with him through the convention.
...and that's just what I plan to do.
If he endorses Gary then I may throw my vote his way, but until then? I am in it to win it.
Now go back home, your mother made you pancakes.
ok whatever you guys are still delusional. If you lose a fight its time to start another battle not to keep kickin this busted can down the road. Your still "in it to win it" see your DELUSIONAL!!!!!!!!! Ron Lost. Of course hes not going to tell everybody to start helping somebody else because youll all have a hissy fit on him and he will be miserable for however long so he has to play the game and say stick with me till the convention, he knows its over his son knows his staff knows, everyone knows except you guys. And its not helping, why cant you do both still go to the convention and support all his views but start supporting somebody who will be on the ballot in november cause ron wont and we wont have enough time to tell anybody after september.
It would be helpful, perhaps, to have some real information about Liberty Unleashed PAC, which is the sponsor of Paul Fest, according to the website. Who are the donors to this PAC? When was it formed? Are there some kind of organizational documents publicly available about the PAC? Opensecrets.org has nothing about this PAC, so isn't much help.
Does anyone know how to research a PAC? (It follows that executives of the PAC should be reviewed, as well.)
Perhaps this would help clarify the intent of the PAC and PaulFest.
skip it. Don't want to. It's an insult to Ron Paul. Not attending it either. It's so insulting.
HAVE FUN AT THE GARY FEST. YOUR COUNTRY MUSIC WILL PUT PEOPLE TO SLEEP.
It's so insulting.
boycott, boycott, boycott.
They started promoting GJ as their main speaker. Very bad move. I was very excited about this event and will now skip it. Instead I am attending the official Ron Paul campaign rally in Tampa. It is far more important to get big numbers at Ron's rally than to another GJ campaign rally....even if that rally happens to be a festival trying capitalize by putting PAUL in their name. When they started promoting GJ, they lost me.
Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!
Is to promote the liberty movement no? What are you going to do when Dr. Paul is no longer the face of that movement? Dr. Paul may not come to the event, should they not allow any big names to speak there just in case Dr. Paul shows up? GJ endorsed RP for shits sake, that alone is enough to make me think he deserves a slot if he wants it. It isn't like he is competing directly with Dr. Paul. If Dr. Paul does manage to get the nomination GJ will drop out and throw his support for Dr. Paul. You know and I know it. I don't understand why so many get so up in arms about Gary Johnson. You don't HAVE to vote for him. He does represent a lot of policies that our movement supports though, so let him spread his message....IT IS OUR MESSAGE!
...one or two delegates with you too and put them up in rooms for a week.
Just remember all this stupid, petty, spiteful, immature, bull chit isn't screwing Gary Johnson, it's screwing our delegates out of affordable trip to Tampa. I'm sure Mitt will have plenty of alternates on hand though to fill in for any delegates that fail to make the trip.
If we want to get our all of the delegates and alternates to Tampa folks need to promote this event.
Yesterdays MB only raised $950 of the $300,000 goal. Without Ronvoy to Paulfest MANY of our delegates and alternate delegates can not financially accommodate the expense of what is practically the cost of a vacation to Tampa.
Sadly Romney supporters are very active here down-voting.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15
YOU HAVE INSULTED ALL Ron Paul supporters and we are down voting. Can't you get the message and leave? We told you a million times to stop with this GJ BS. We have explained why a million times. Now stop it!
Would try to fracture the unity of the Ron Paul Campaign and it's supporters by throwing an event with a competing candidate.
Check yourself, buddy!
That's like not going to Woodstock because Joan Baez was scheduled to perform. Seriously if you have a better plan how to finance our delegates travel and lodging expenses I would love to hear it, otherwise grow some chesties. It's 15 minutes out of 3 days. You can't bite the bullet for 15 minutes to help maximize our delegate presence at the convention? It's Gary Johnson for crying out loud, not King Georges army.
to attend PaulFest. I would definitely go to his rally though and maybe Paulfest, just not for GJ speech trying to sway RP's supporters.
If you were a delegate how would you get to Tampa? Where would you stay?
People buying tickets and taking the Ronvoy to Paulfest is gonna transport you there and provide you with a place to stay when you get there, transportation while you're there and then transport you back home after the convention. Hopefully with as little to no expense to you the delegate as possible. BUT whether that's possible or not, all hinges on the success or failure of this event.
I would fly down at my expense and stay with friends. I am not rich but would consider this a personal investment in my/our future.
GJ spoke at the Rally For The Republic 4 years ago.
Running against Ron then.
We need to spread the word on Twitter as well.
