Ron Paul Took Over Occupy Tampa Last Night!


Last night, we were leaving the convention & a unit of troops were scurrying in an opposite direction from us. "Watch your backs! Watch your backs!" echoed through the group & we laughed, "Watch your bags?"

We are so rummy now, from lack of sleep & weariness, we joke about everything. We rounded a corner & there was a rush of mounted cops. I stopped to take a photo of the horses, I'm a horseperson, & dozens of bike guards rode up & formed in front of the horses.

Then, a raft of press ran up the street, and behind them were the Occupy protesters. They were chanting their slogans and stopped to take a stand. Immediately, I heard stuff that was just plain stupid, & stepped into the middle of them & tried to talk some sense. At first, they wanted to verbally fight with me, but all of us have talked the talk for so long, it's really hard for anyone to win in debate with us. Soon, they started listening to me. Everyone listened to me, the cops, the press, even the horses, I think.

"Hey, she's talking about no IRS, ending the Fed, ending the wars & imperialism. I want to listen to this." I told them that if they'd gone down & registered Republican & voted for Ron in their primaries & caucuses, then WE would be nominating RON, for president in that convention hall, instead of that travesty of a charade of a convention that's taking place there. They thought that was impossible, so I explained to them how it all went down in Nevada, & how WE run the party now.

They actually got it - REALLY! Speaking in that intersection to those hundreds of people was such a high, in a week filled with highs: Nevada nominating Ron, seeing Ron so often & so close-up, the festival on Sunday, visiting with Carol, and meeting so many, many wonderful, intelligent, liberty-loveing people

In the photo I am with the Occupy guys last night. See the horses in the background & the bike guards in the front. See the smiles on their faces?

The Occupy guys just laid down on the ground & I'm saying "Get UP! Don't lay down & let society walk all over you!" Then while they were down there, I just went into my "Taking back our Constitution & our country" speech. It was so ironic, one idiot barked, "Ron Paul wants to get rid of the EPA!" and I responded, "Do you actually think the EPA is working for YOU? That they are protecting you?" and someone yelled from "our" crowd, "They let those workers go into the World Trade Tower wreckage!" That shut the EPA-loving guy up.

After half an hour when they told us to move on, I waved at the mounted guys & called, "Happy Trails!" and they responded, "Good bye, Cynthia!" My name badge info had been relayed to security. I wonder what my file said?

You are the WOMAN!

YOU are Ron Paul.

Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!

Thank You Cynthia

You make me proud to be a Nevadan....God Bless you all

Thank You

glad I read this.

Awesome job! We need more

Awesome job!

We need more like you. What I mean is, we need more mature females to take a stand and fight the good fight. If there's one negative about this movement, is that there's not enough mature smart females taking charge. You obviously had all their ears, I doubt me and my shaved head and muscular build would have had the same outcome... they probably would have tazered me and locked me up! LOL!

One can still spread the message of liberty in the cage.

This is pure gold!

Cynthia, your picture and your story made me leap with joy. What happened to you (and through you) was powerful.

The best thing about it is that no supporters of any other candidate, and no movement inspired by a candidate, will ever wield the power of truth and reason that you demonstrated to those protesters and officers.

I am so proud of you and the entire Nevada delegation!

Cynthia, I seldom give a "+"

I seldom give a "+" or a "-" on the DP, but I wish I could give this post a thousand +'s, and then some.. and for you, a great big hug!

Thank you Cynthia for all

Thank you Cynthia for all that you have done,.will do and for sharing this story!

Photo caption

I read the caption with your picture. It says Romney was affirmed the nomination. Notice they did not say won. In actuality he was confirmed by the few people who confirmed he would be the nominee from the start. Remember, you can remain a registered Republican and work for change from the inside BUT you can vote for any person in any party you want to.

Tyranny cannot be removed from the top down

it can only be removed by the ideas and actions of millions of individuals. Thank you Cynthia - truly inspirational.


Here's my best compliment. You make me want to be a better Ron Paul supporter. Thanks

Wow Cynthia...

You are great! Keep up the good works.

Cynthia -

what you did brought tears to my eyes :) You're JUST LIKE Ron Paul!!
I believe your story is an example of what Ron Paul has wished for all these years - people to wake up, get it, and do likewise. God bless you.
