Ron Paul Shut Out of GOP Convention, Paul Festival organizers respond with free passesSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 08/07/2012 - 10:28
In a recent announcement, the GOP has decided not to invite Ron Paul to speak at the Republican National Convention (RNC). In an affront to Dr. Paul’s decades of work, the GOP has decided to ignore the most enthusiastic, fastest growing political movement in recent history; a movement that will bring as many as 500 supportive delegates to the convention floor. Unfortunately, the snubbing is nothing new for those in the Ron Paul camp, who have been treated with similar disdain for many years, if not decades.
In the previous election cycle, Ron Paul supporters were also excluded from the convention proceedings, causing a backlash that ended up in the creation of a mirror convention in nearby Minneapolis, dubbed the “Rally for the Republic.” This year, however, there are MULTIPLE Ron Paul events, some only a few miles away. First and foremost is the Ron Paul Rally at the USF Sun Dome, where the candidate will be addressing his delegates and will be open to the public. The event is to take place for about 4 hours in the afternoon of Sunday August 26th.
The other major event is Paul Festival http://www.paulfestival.org, a weekend-long festival being held at the Florida State Fairgrounds celebrating the founding father of the liberty movement and his contributions to the most vibrant segment of the GOP.
