Worldwide press coverage expected for Ron Paul's rally at Sun Dome
As this Congressman did 4 years ago in response to being basically shut-out of the Republican National Convention, Ron Paul has again organized his own large event nearby. He is currently not invited to attend the convention and is only going to be given a video tribute at the RNC similar to what a great man might receive after he is dead.
Although there has been speculation for weeks that Ron Paul was never invited to speak at the convention, it has been recently revealed that he was offered a speaking spot but it came with 2 strings attached. He would have to submit his speech for approval and vetting by the Romney team. He would also have to fully endorse Mitt Romney for President. Dr. Paul declined the offer due to these compromising conditions. In an interview reported by the New York Times, he is quoted as saying that "It wouldn't be my speech" and "That would undo everything I have done in the last 30 years. I don't fully endorse him for President."
It should also be noted that Ron Paul never suspended his campaign, the legal battles over his delegates continues onto Tampa and the delegates have not formally voted to make any candidate their nominee yet.
