Ron Paul Update on Tampa Rally!

My team and I have been hard at work getting our rally ready for Tampa, and I'm happy to say things are coming together nicely!

Our theme for this event will be, "We Are the Future - A Rally for the Liberty Delegates." I'm sure it will not only be a great time, but it will also go a long way to proving you and I are the future of the Republican Party.

This event on Sunday, August 26th, at the University of South Florida's Sundome, will be the ONLY pre-Convention event at which I'll be speaking, so I hope to see you'll be able to make it.

In fact, I shot a video today to share further information, which you can see here http://www.ronpaul2012.co...

If you are a RNC Delegate, please click http://ronpauldelegates.e... and register as a Ron Paul delegate. We will be reaching out to delegates soon.

This is the day alright, this is as Daniel entering Lion's den..

An apt and perfect reality check would be:

Ron Paul is the apostle, entering the Lion's den of the Pharisees.

Everyone inside the rotunda of the Pharisees hates him and mocks him, but as we all know, David has a little surprise for Goliath.

bump for Tampa

20 seconds, Replay. "Fun".

request, pls replay from 3:50 to 4:10, Ron Paul says =
"numbers are important to validate what we believe in & promote our cause, also it can be a lot more Fun. I have always argued this is serious business, and it can be tireless, we should EnJoy ourselves. I am looking forward to it ~ ~ ".

This reminds me - observe kids playing when they are having fun, they may sweat & breathe fast but they want to continue ~ ~ that is because they are having fun = they do Not get tired & give-up.
Stay On.

March on


Is this related to the Paul fest Rally being planned?

Or is this an event put on specifically by Dr. Paul himself?

Does anyone know?

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Ron Paul Will Not Speak At Paul Festival


Published on Saturday, 07 July 2012 03:27
Written by Deborah Robinet

As you may know, Dr. Paul just sent out an email stating that his event ".....will be the ONLY pre-Convention event at which I'll be speaking, so I hope to see you'll be able to make it."

We hope you'll make it too. As a matter of fact, when we learned he was having his own event we posted this: http://www.dailypaul.com/242552/paul-festival-plans-for-sunday

While we have been hopeful that there was a chance he would still make an appearance at our event, we now know definitively, that he will not. Of course, this is disappointing to us since we have been planning this event for many months now. But, we know first hand that he is very appreciative of our efforts and he told us he didn't want his event to interfere with ours. And of course it won't, as you can read in the above linked thread, we intend to fully support his event.

Paul Festival will provide a way, and a venue for supporters, in all our diversity, to converge on Tampa in a moment of celebration and unity with music, comedy, great speakers, and much more.

Through Dr. Paul's message we have been able to build a strong coalition of organizations, and though some within our ranks are controversial, our message is pure and consistent - that unless individual freedom is allowed to flourish, the future of our country is at risk. We realize that WE are Dr. Paul's legacy, and we must move forward and effect change in the following ways:

1. Get Liberty Candidates elected

2. Expose the corrupt electoral process. Reform local, state, and federal election laws

3. Educate the movement within our communities, to prepare for "what comes next".

Our speakers will address the above issues and help make these objectives a reality, because what good is the movement that Dr. Paul has founded, unless we take action? These goals will certainly help aide Dr. Paul's objectives in influencing the Republican party.

Now is the time to show the country and the world our numbers. The liberty movement is the fastest growing political movement in America. And, Paul Festival will be our launching pad. It is our hope that Dr. Paul will support us in our efforts.

They are not related.

This event is by Ron Paul himself.

This is personal now.

Father son rivalry. Ran Paul's endorsement could be the best thing we could have every hoped for! Listen to the emotion! He really wants to WIN! We are winning on all fronts:


State delegate only

I became a delegate for the state convention but did not get picked for the national, should I go?


Dr. Paul is asking for a show of numbers.

Trying to register but the

Trying to register but the site keeps telling me that the email address I presented is not in the proper format (and it is). Anyone else having this problem?

Never mind.

User error. I got a ticket! It's like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the golden ticket.

Golden Ticket!

I never dreamed that I would climb
Over the moon in ecstasy
But nevertheless, it's there that I'm
Shortly about to be

'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day


(I'm so envious!!! Have fun and hold a sign for us that can't go!)

Will be there

Got my tickets, got the wife to go as well, see you in Tampa.

Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security - Ron Paul

Wish I could be there

Give em hell Ron


Just got our tickets! :) See

Just got our tickets! :)

See you all in Tampa!!!

what the 'fear monger' trolls don't understand is that

Ron Paul supporters fear the loss of liberty for you and me and all Americans worse than whatever the trolls are rumoring.

OK, I'll go under a few conditions

I do not want to be alone in Tampa. Are there any women who would want to share a room and car rental? Maybe someone has a place available I can rent who is going to the RP event and I will pay you for room and ride?

It seems my flight would arrive late Saturday and leave early Monday.

I am thinking of having a cocktail party, maybe at the Sail Pavillion Saturday night (drag is there is no dancing there and the water view would be black, so any other suggestion would be appreciated), and the Sunset Restaurant in Ruskin for a champagne Brunch at 10:30 AM, we will arrive a little late to the RP event, 1PM, and still have 5 hours to enjoy.

Is this a concession

Is this a concession speech?... a last hoorah get together? Has Ron Paul no intention of fighting for a nomination?

That is exactly what Tampa is about - not the nomination,

but some last meaningless hooray, to entice that donations keep flowing to tate, who has been outed as a crony and thug.

so meaningless, and i think those rp supporters in denial at some level know it but won't wake up for their sake or for their country.


Nice Try! but my query is

Nice Try! but my query is directed to DPers. I'm still hoping there will be a delegate takeover. If there is no chance now....there is no future.

you're hoping for a communist takeover

by wanting a delegate takeover. you want delegates to become flip floppers and ignore that the gop base wants romney by a very wide margin over paul, who only has 10% of the base. and since he started campaigning, his polls in gop are exactly the same and stagnant.

so that tampa is nothing more than a way for paul and his supporters to look foolish and horray for romney.


But the point is the GOP base

But the point is the GOP base has changed and they are not getting their duly elected choices of delegates. To brow beat delegates to support a candidate of lesser choice (Mitt Romney) rather than duly elected Ron Paul supporter delegates is coercion and fraud perpetrated by the power hungry few at the top of the RNC chain. With Obama in power, you already have 'communism' entrenched in US.

ron paul has not been duly elected.

even without vote flipping that rp's corrupt gop/dnc establishment staff refused to deal with and kept silent on, rp would not have won the majority vote like romney. paul's poll numbers consistently from its revpac to rasmussen to other major polls consistently indicate for the past year that he has only 10% of gop base and 20% if he were to run as an indep/3rd party.

so, for you and paul's staff to latch onto coercion of delegates to go against the wishes of the american people is fraud and tyrannical.

why focus on gop. it doesn't matter. both gop adn dnc are similar and are establishment. so to focus on gop is idiotic, and of course paul's supporters really haven't gotten much of anywhere.


You sound like a person with

You sound like a person with a mission. You might want to try more fallow ground with your anti-Paul sentiments in another camp. Take your pick... Obama or Romney?

infact, you are anti-paul and pro-obamaney.

there is no pick, you idiot. they are a team, dufus. so it doesn't matter which one you are for or land up with.

and your pick is obamaney first and then use paul's credibility to tear down paul with this team of thugs that were assigned to him by dnc/gop.


"there is no pick you idiot"

"there is no pick you idiot" is my point exactly. I'm not following any of your lines of logic??????


This is actually how the nominating process works, especially when considering the RNC rules.

You also cite polls that have nothing to do with the nominating process, even if your numbers were accurate, which they're not. There is also empirical evidence of massive voter/election fraud, just do some research.

See, the difference between you and many RP supporters, is that even if you supported a candidate's platform that we were opposed to, we would defend your right and your candidate's right to have fair elections, and also your rights to follow the process.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just well-informed


it gives you thrills to submit and obey like a sick slave rnc rules. rnc rules say forget about voting and the american public in elections.

just use delegates that will do what romney-estab wants them to do and and assign wins accordingly. you are part of the election fraud - rnc rules that you love are also based on fraduaulent principles.

reualc - your despise of fair elections is very strong. and to make sure rp is not heard, you reward rp's staff of thugs and thieves by giving them donations to hold paul back.



You're not making sense.....
