Speakers Announced for Ron Paul Rally (NOT Paulfest)!

This is the email I just received... I'm so excited!!!

For those of you with short attention span the short of it is that Doug Wead, Congressman Justin Amash, Barry Goldwater, Jr., Jack Hunter, and Senator Rand Paul, will speak at the Rally, among others.

Dear Angie,

The Republican National Convention is rapidly approaching.

And my staff and legal team have been feverishly working to prepare for the credentials’ battle and platform fights we expect to have in Tampa.

Of course, we’re working very hard to achieve our goals in Tampa.

But as you’ve heard me say many times, we must also make sure to have some fun in the process.

So today, I wanted to let you know about some of the fun and exciting events we have planned for Tampa.

1) We are the Future Rally

The first event we have planned is our “We are the Future Rally” taking place on Sunday, August 26, at the Sun Dome in Tampa from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

At the rally, we will celebrate our liberty movement’s success at influencing and changing the direction of the Republican Party.

Doug Wead, Congressman Justin Amash, Barry Goldwater, Jr., Jack Hunter, and my son, Senator Rand Paul, will speak at the Rally.

We’ll also hear from some of our new leaders for the future, like State Senator Tom Davis in South Carolina and 21-year-old National Committeewoman Ashley Ryan from Maine.

As for entertainment, Jimmie Vaughan, Aimee Allen, Jordan Page, and John Popper of Blues Traveler with Ron Noyes will also provide live entertainment.

And to cap it all off, I’ll be delivering the speech the Republican National Convention doesn’t want the rest of America to hear.

After the rally, my delegates and alternates will be riding chartered buses to the RNC Welcome Reception at Tropicana Field.

This is our opportunity to show that we are the future of the Republican Party, so I’m asking all of my supporters who aren’t delegates and alternates to line the route with signs so our delegates can make a grand entrance.

2) Liberty Rocks After Party at Ferg’s Sports Bar and Grill

From 8:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Sunday, we’ll be hosting an after party and celebration at Ferg’s Sports Bar and Grill.

Aimee Allen, Jimmie Vaughan, and John Popper have been nice enough to agree to provide entertainment at this event, as well.

The Liberty Rocks After Party is open to everyone – not just delegates and alternates - so please come join us for a fun time Sunday night.

Angie, Tampa is going to be a very fun and exciting time.

You and I are going to plant our liberty flag in the Republican Party and prove once and for all that WE are the future of the GOP.

But we’re also going to have a lot of fun and celebrate the success of my campaign to Restore America NOW.

That’s why I hope you’ll do everything possible to get down to Tampa and celebrate liberty with me and thousands of our campaign's supporters.

But tickets are going fast, and space is limited.

So if you haven’t yet registered for the “We are the Future Rally,” it’s vital you do so now. You can register by clicking HERE.

I hope to see you in Tampa for a fun and exciting time!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. The Republican National Convention is going to be a time for work, but it’s also going to be a lot of fun!

Even if you can’t make it, I hope you’ll agree to chip in a generous contribution to help ensure all my delegates are able to get to Tampa!

Dr. Paul asks us to make signs and line the roadways with them. Brainstorming ideas can be found on this thread.

Highly excited too!

but this is getting comical. So we have the not-Paulfest and the We Are The Future Fest featuring Ron Paul and half the speakers from the not-fest.

If the organisers of both hadn't worked so hard to kinda blend and merge these energies you'd swear it would be different crowds at each.

Nobody does things like we do. Not like they want to or not like they could but if they did they still couldn't.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Hey Everyone! Don't forget

Hey Everyone! Don't forget also, that just as I did the Ronvoys for the Revolution March and the Rally for the Republic in 2008, I'm doing them for this amazing weekend in Tampa! The prices are as low as they could possibly be for round-trip travel to Tampa from across the nation, and we also have packages that include camping at the Fairgrounds for Paul Fest attendees. The deadline to book these is coming up FAST! It's this coming Wednesday, August 15th, so get your spot booked now!

National Ronvoy is for the weekend, and leaves Tampa on Monday - http://ronvoy2012.eventbrite.com

State Ronvoy is for the weekend, and then stays for the whole convention, leaving on Friday - http://www.ronvoy.com

Can't wait to see everyone in Tampa!

Sundome, or PaulFest?

Are the Ronvoys specifically for PaulFest, or are they for both..or what?

Thanks Susan!!

It is also worth mentioning that you guys have blocks of rooms reserved at various hotels. How long do you have them blocked (is that the right term) for? Just the weekend or the entire RNC?

All of our hotels are blocked

All of our hotels are blocked for the entire convention, if people need them that long. Also, don't forget Camp Liberty is happening! People can tent camp for the week there, on privately owned beautiful campground by Ron Paul supporter Jeff Griffin!

This is an event I would have my husband miss work for

if he had to. (and we have one income!) I am so glad to hear no 'note of concession' to Romney, I could just kiss Dr. Paul! (and my hubby would not have a problem with it! --He loves Ron Paul too!)

So is this for anyone, or

So is this for anyone, or just delegates? If it's for anyone, do I need to get a ticket, or do I just show up? Thinking about making the trip down from Georgia, if it's easy enough to do. Gotta get back up for class on Monday though.

Free and open to the public

Get your ticket here though to make sure you get in -


I am!

I would think anyone is invited

I would think anyone is invited since they're letting a Romney supporter speak there.

Come to the rally

It will be historical!

It was like 3 am. Apparently

It was like 3 am. Apparently my reading skills aren't so great at this time of night. Just got the e-mail myself. Grabbed a ticket. I'll see you all there!

Goldwater Jr.

Looking forward to his speech as always. That guy does not mince words and has clarity.

He should of been a General lol


Im excited about John Popper on the Paul Train

But deviant dreams lurk beneath the skin,
what dirty little secret are you living in?
Always alone and convinced that you're made up of deviant dreams,
But are you afraid to dream about anger,
dream about pain,
dreams lead to feelings that awaken everything.
A chance to gain freedom,
A chance to abound,
To ripple your water,
Knock the old order down."

FOlks... WHen is this Rally Lining the Streets? I am not

clear what day & time is the RP Speech and what day and time will lining of the street take place. Just want to see about lining up a ticket then heading back to the airport.


I'm thinking he is talking about

the route that the delegates will take to their meeting after the rally on the 26th. We need to have signs prepared for that.

I just booked my tickets

for both Paulfest and this event.

I am flying in from California. After all of the effort I have put in for this movement with risk to my high-paying job, there is no way I am missing the culmination (or the start of a movement depending on how you want to look at it).

Any relatively young people

Any relatively young people heading to Tampa for this? I'm 25, from Cleveland, and I'm seriously considering just flying down. Sounds like it would be a blast.

My girlfriend and I, 27,

My girlfriend and I, 27, flying down from NY!

Hey Zap! I'm 21, live within

Hey Zap! I'm 21, live within an hour of Cleveland, and am thinking about flying down for this too. Seems like the opportunity of a lifetime and I don't want to miss it. Just depends on my work schedule. Shoot me a msg if you might be interested in coordinating a trip down there


I'm nearly 17, and if anybody wants to stop by Houston and pick me up I'll go. =P
But, other than that, I don't think I'll be able to make it...

Im 37 years young...

There will be tens of thousands of people there from all age brackets!


I'm 31

Definitely down to go out and show the force with my Veterans for Ron Paul T-shirt after hours.

From Birmingham. We are 32. I'm sure there will be plenty of people in that age range. :)

So about those signs Dr Paul wants...

I'll ask in case no one else has...

What's the grass roots coordinated message going to be?

This is the chance to say something REALLY BIG!!!!

The chance to speak to Dr. Paul, Tampa, The GOP, The Media, and The Whole World!

I will be in Tampa from the Friday before the rally through the duration of the RNC.

Maybe you could start a new thread

and ask for suggestions? Even if there are several messages, good ideas will come from it.
