Ron Paul Will Not Be Speaking at Paul FestivalSubmitted by Deborah K on Fri, 07/06/2012 - 21:41
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.
