Ron Paul Supporters at Paul Fest Will Prove the Liberty Movement is Here to StaySubmitted by celeste on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 05:23
On August 24-26th, the weekend before the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, supporters of Ron Paul have organized the P.A.U.L. Festival (People Awakening and Uniting for Liberty) to celebrate and honor Paul's campaign, legacy, and libertarian message.
The event will feature speeches from many heavyweights in the libertarian movement, like Thomas Woods, Lew Rockwell, Scott Horton, Walter Block, Adam Kokesh, Peter Schiff, Gary Johnson, and many more. There will also be beer and entertainment, including music from libertarian bands and those who support Paul's message.
In 2008, Paul held an alternative convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota just across town from the GOP convention in St. Paul. Paul invited the presidential candidates from nearly every third party to speak, have an honest debate, and Paul later rocked the crowd of almost 10,000 with his usual points stressing constitutional government, peace, and individual liberty.
The P.A.U.L. Festival in Tampa should be even louder and more crowded than the one in 2008. As I mentioned before, there will be many great bands performing at the event that will undoubtedly entertain and excite the crowd. In addition to these performances and speeches, here are five songs that should be played at the festival, the louder the better, that also help capture the spirit of Paul's campaign and remind the GOP that despite their open hostility, the Paulian movement represents the real future of the party and the country.
