Veterans for Ron Paul March on the RNC !

Please help share the facebook event:


Fellow Americans,

If you care about this country, if you care about our Constitution, if you care about freedom, then you already understand the imperative of ensuring that Ron Paul is our next President, and that is the mission that we, Veterans for Liberty Super PAC, have taken on. Mission accomplishment requires that Ron Paul receives the majority of delegates at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida.

In the first round of voting, most delegates are bound by party rules to vote based on the results of their state primary. If there is not a clear winner of the first round of voting, the delegates become "unbound" and a second round of voting is held. The establishment will be hard at work, scrambling to build a coalition around another candidate. The delegates who are loyal to Ron Paul will not be swayed by false promises or handouts, but they will not yet be a majority. The fate of the nation will be in the hands of those several hundred delegate swing voters, who will have to choose between standing with the grassroots of the party, or the establishment that has demonstrated the attitude of Henry Kissinger, who famously said, "Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy."

Despite the rallying cry of supporting the troops that unites the GOP, there are many in our party who resist Ron Paul because of his foreign policy. They say it is dangerous, and refuse to listen to the troops who know better, who understand that a foreign policy based on the arbitrary whims of a government run amok is inferior to one based on the moral principles embedded in the Constitution. Like the only veteran in the race and like our nation's founders, we who have demonstrated an absolute commitment to national security understand that our nation is more secure without entangling alliances, and with a foreign policy of friendship, free trade, and allowing relations to be defined by individuals, not governments.

To make the point undeniably clear that Ron Paul is the choice of the troops, we are organizing the largest military lobbying effort for any candidate in American history and invite you to join us for the Veterans for Ron Paul March on the RNC. But this will be more than a march. We will be an undeniable presence at and around the RNC with signs, handouts, and the friendly smiling faces of the passionate men and women who understand that the oath they swore to the Constitution did not come with an expiration date.

We are asking all military veterans and active duty troops (in full observance of military regulations regarding political speech) who can furnish proof of service, to join us at FOB Domestic Defense the week of August 27th where food, campsites, GP tents, and cots will be provided for the entire duration of the RNC. The organization of this event will be fully transparent, and we will make every effort possible to coordinate with local law enforcement agencies, as well as convention security. Our security detail will consist of volunteer police officers and retired police officers and will be led by Constable Robert Pepe. For more information about how to get involved and support this event, please go to ronpaulisthechoiceofthetroops.com.

To our fellow veterans, your oath to the Constitution did not come with an expiration date and your country still needs you. The troops still serving and yet to serve still need you. Ron Paul has stood for the Constitution his entire career and risked his life standing up for your freedom. This may be the last chance you ever get - will you stand with Dr. Paul? The last time veterans marched for Ron Paul, two men raised a brigade in a month and a half. Now we have six months. Will you help us raise a division?

bumping in hope and supporting . . .

the veterans/military members on DP--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Here's Why We Need This

So History does not repeat this episode again.
Many thanks to Nonna for the links and advice re:Tampa 2012 RNC.

It kicked up a memory, and I found this:


An addendum to Nonna's links, you might say.

See y'all in Tampa...buy ya a beer at the "Double Doppler" in Ybor!

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

Sure hope the veterans have a big turnout and a huge

success for the entire world to see.

Here's the documentary I mentioned I would post shortly (further down in comments): http://www.dailypaul.com/246499/important-message-for-all-de...

Watch that and you'll be VERY happy to have the good guys there on our side! To all the vets for Ron Paul: May God bless and protect you and those you love.

Thanks for the bump, reedr3v!

More people should watch that documentary to get ready for a time they will never forget. Hopefully, Tampa will be a much better than anyone expects success. Our people must go in prepared for anything to happen.

NOPE- RP says vote your conscience

Nope-you can vote your conscience on the frst round according the the RNC rules.

"In the first round of voting, most delegates are bound by party rules to vote based on the results of their state primary. If there is not a clear winner of the first round of voting, the delegates become "unbound" and a second round of voting is held.

Keepin' it real.

Dignity & honor, intelligence & passion... with the STRENGTH of

experienced worriors: we will definitely trust & follow you, if this nation ever needs to be defended!

No bloodthirsty neocons should be allowed to "play" war games with live soldiers & deadly drones. . . Veterans for RP, have a great memorable PEACEFUL march at RNC!

You Vets are the best. I

You Vets are the best. I watched the March on the White House with great pride.

If you could somehow try to post good coverage videos on you tube (as it happens) that would be helpful in gaining a larger audience. The march on the White House steaming was pretty ruff at times causing many folks I tried to wake up to tune out and they never really got the jest of what was going on. We can't count on the Mainstream Media to cover any of our events. If I can get good early coverage I will hit everyone up again as well as all the local news. Hopefully many supporters will do the same. We need to blitz editorials, local channels, and yes even the main stream media demanding coverage.

Can anyone brainstorm a way the Veterans could do something so special the main stream would have to cover it or lose all credibility? Not that hey have credibility with anyone who is paying attention. I mean something so special that when the sleeping hear of it that they question the Media not covering the Vets...

I can't imagine

I can't imagine a division of vets/soldiers/airmen/etc. standing at parade rest outside the convention center, would be very easy to ignore.

The Defense Authorization Act of 2009 allows non uniformed Veterans the ability to salute the flag, does that extend to saluting person's that qualify such as the president?

Could Dr. Paul be the recipient of a salute as a member of congress? As a presidential nominee?


How could a vet not snap to attention and salute Ron Paul?
What an honor!
There are many vets like myself I am sure, who would love to be there but cannot, but we are with you in spirit and in heart and will be praying much for you as for our country.

From deep within my heart, I salute all of you!

I couldn't agree more.... The

I couldn't agree more.... The march on the White House should have been prime time on every major network news... Yet it got zero coverage... The water boarding idea is heading in the right direction... I imagine the bottom line is the only way the mainstream media will cover the march is if it is their interest. The only way that would happen is if it was not in our interest. So in the end the best we can do is make it very news worthy and have our own reporting that we can spread. When people see the coverage they will be so amazed that it was not on the evening news....

It's kinda like the Sheriff in Arizona getting no coverage on Obama's birth. Huge story zero coverage.

Livestream video

I just learned how to use ustream.tv It's actually really easy and I will try to hook it up during the march. Just need a phone to use. As far as doing something special, I volunteer to be waterboarded, but I'm not sure any one will care to watch. I thought about submitting my absentee ballot with Ron Paul written in.

What do you think of this? www.theonlinemarket.org

I dunno, sounds ok but like

it's gonna be so hot and sticky and florida is all like full of bugs and there really aren't that many good restaurants and places to shop along the way and i dunno. the whole thing just doesn't say "Disney" to me.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Good One

Smudge Pot, you're funny. See you at the march!

What do you think of this? www.theonlinemarket.org

Yes it is so much nicer in

Yes it is so much nicer in the sands of the middle east... The service men and women don't have to eat at those pesky Florida restaurants because they have those lovely mess tents... The IED's and dirty bombs do a great job keeping the insect populations down.

Getting together with tens of thousands of like minded fellow supporters... In one of our countries best tourist destinations... Seafood everywhere... Theme park capitol of the world... multiple Paul events... What fun could that be?

Thanks and May God be with You

I gave my Oath in 1968 and am an Oath Keeper. Many Oath Keepers will be marching with you. You will be heard and seen by the world this time.

Wish I can be there...

...but I'm still on active duty here in Germany. I support you guys 1000% and wish you guys the best of luck. I also want to reiterate the point in the article about being mindful of regulations for those currently on active duty. Do what you can, but please don't let the establishment ruin your careers by using our own rules against us. Long live liberty!

See ya'll in Tampa, Patriots!

Be there!

I marched

with Adam in DC, and it was a day that I'll always remember. Unfortunately Adam has shown that he cannot lead Veterans for Ron Paul anymore - and I will not follow him again.

Why? Because he is a Quitter! He has come out publicly saying that Ron Paul cannot win, and that he (Adam) will vote for Gary Johnson.

Really? Isn't your whole post (which I really like, and believe to be a valid strategy - lead by a true leader) about getting Ron Paul the Nomination? If so, then how can a person who has already "deserted" the movement, lead us? Why did he QUIT before the battle is even OVER??

Please answer, as I may be interpreting this incorrectly (but I don't think so).

"Government is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex". - Frank Zappa

That May Not Matter Soon as GJ May Have an Ace up His Sleeve

Rumor is that Gary Johnson (GJ), being a hero, has offered to step down and give Dr. Paul TOP billing for Presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party in the event Dr. Paul does NOT win the GOP. One of the members of L4RP claims to have conferred with Gary Johnson's attorney while briefing him on the Federal Civil Rights lawsuit. The subject came up about a Paul/Johnson Libertarian Ticket in the event Dr. Paul doesn't win the GOP nomination. They called it a "Dream Team" and discussed details about how to execute such a contingency plan. This plan, which may indeed be in the waiting, would give Dr. Paul 50 State ballot access. We would garner the Independent, Latino, Democratic, and Libertarian vote along with ALL our votes too. FREEDOM has NO Party Lines.

Better to unite for liberty, than find reasons not to.

I disagree with him also, but he merely has a different opinion than us. I believe he still fully supports Dr. Paul, which is the whole point of the march, he just feels his vote for Johnson is a better choice if Dr. Paul is not the GOP nominee.

I wish he could have been more patient and steadfast, but I'm not going to hold his decision against his effort to honor Dr. Paul.

The reason I'm saying this is because we MUST be able to TRUST our LEADERS.

What confuses me is why would Adam publicly state he will vote for GJ, but still hold a march in Tampa in support of Ron Paul? How can I TRUST him, how do I know he is really an RP supporter after he has given up? Is this more about Adam or Ron Paul?

Maybe Adam should consider giving over the Leadership position to ZAK or someone who has not deserted the RP cause for POTUS.

Yikes! thanks but no thanks!

I'm still 100% in the Ron Paul camp, but will definitely be staying WAY behind the scenes and away from cameras and microphones from here on out!

It's not like he's leading anyone, he's just leading a march

All those in the march follow Ron Paul, not Adam Kokesh.


Tell that to Adam why don't you!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Nobody is out there marching for Adam

They're marching for Ron Paul. Including Adam himself.

Not to mention

he's smoking all kinds of drugs and putting it on the internet. It's his choice to do that, but he might consider that it denigrates his credibility in the eyes of those who might otherwise look up to or follow him.

If you're old enough

to remember the American political climate in 1968, or even if you don't, inserting Tampa when you hear Chicago in this song should motivate, perhaps even inspire you, to travel to the convention in support of liberty for mankind.


See you there...


We saw what you did and we know you you are; we're coming...


And to all the authorities that dare stand between us and our freedoms; I have to ask...
