All eyes are on Ron Paul this monthSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 19:53
Republican Ron Paul has been snubbed by his own party by not given a slot to speak at the upcoming Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida later this month. Paul is often on opposing sides of the Republican Party, however has garnered a large, committed following of supporters across the nation. The convention will determine who is the Republican Party’s nominee for President of the United States, and that person will be running against Barack Obama and Gary Johnson in the November 6, 2012 general election. Ron Paul is currently a member of Congress and is not running for his Texas district and has plans to retire should he not receive the party’s nomination.
There are a few events planned during the convention in which Paul is the focus. The main event is the Paul Festival which is being held August 24 through 26, 2012 at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheater (formerly the Ford Amphitheater) in Tampa, Florida at I-4 and US 301. The festival is going to include several high profile speakers popular in the libertarian movement including Libertarian Party Presidential nominee Gary Johnson and his vice presidential pick Judge Jim Gray. No doubt they will be making a case that should Ron Paul not win the Republican Party nomination, Paul supporters should support and vote for Johnson on their ballot this coming November 6, 2012 general election to continue the Ron Paul message. Other notable speakers are Peter Schiff, Lew Rockwell, Chuck Baldwin, Thomas Woods, Walter Block, Larry Pratt and several more.
