TAMPA — Freedom Festival is dead.

It never secured a contract to bring tens of thousands of people to Fantasy of Flight just before the Republican National Convention. It suspended ticket sales. Its spokesmen stopped returning calls.

And this week, its website started automatically redirecting visitors to the Liberty Avengers, a new group with plans for its own pre-RNC event.

The avengers include some of the same Ron Paul-inspired organizers who started with Paul Festival 2012 — still on track for three days of music and activism at the Florida State Fairgrounds — and who later moved on to Freedom Festival over differences with the Paul Festival team.

First of all ...

I wish for nothing but success for this event.

however ...

if my assumptions are correct ...

this brings an end to the "Lawyer" trolling which is a godsend.

Carry on.

Too bad...I was hoping for another "Rally for the Republic."

Like in 2008.

That was a very successful event, but can you imagine how much bigger and better it could be this time around?

"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."

Know your stuff, learn real history and economics @LibertyClassroom.com

Are you still taking paypal?

Do you have 12 tickets together?

Just makes Paul Fest bigger

I've been to and organized many RP events, but this will be the first '3-day Paul Extravaganza' I've been to (I fear a 'Liberty Overload' before it's over LOL), THEN Ron's Rally, THEN being an Alt Delegate inside the RNC...

I can't imagine how pumped up I will be by Friday night!

And I have to drive home to Arizona after all that?

I think I'm going to sleep through September.

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

Paul Fest is going to be

Paul Fest is going to be AWESOME!! And Camp Liberty through the week??! Amazing, as well! The weekend will be filled with awesome and inspiring speakers and great artists who support Liberty! And I can't wait to see the Ronvoys to Dr. Paul's event at the Sun Dome from the Fairgrounds on Sunday - after a rousing and rallying service by Pastor Chuck Baldwin!!

BIG announcement coming soon about Sunday night's show!! See you all in Tampa!!
