I was at a GOP dinner with Ron Paul as the guest speaker in Knoxville Tn. on April 12th 2013. Ron Paul was THE Rock star. The GOP here said they had never had the dinner with so many people and the long lines to talk to Dr. Paul.

Ron Paul said North Korea war is propaganda - unemployment is really over 20% and how the government LIES about everything. We have "Kings" as Presidents, the super rich is who is actually getting welfare from the government.

Ron Paul ROCKS and it was such an Awesome evening to actually get to see Ron Paul in person and in a small dinner setting!

Much more in the video and more pictures and information in this article on the blog, besides pictures of a corvette that is ALL Ron Paul: http://sherriequestioningall.blogspot.com/2013/04/my-video-o...

Thank You Sherrie!

I was so thrilled to have seen Ron Paul in person. He was a Rock star at the annual Lincoln day GOP dinner in Knoxville, Tennessee on April 12th, 2013. There was a huge line to meet him at the beginning and end. The GOP said the dinner had never had so many people before nor a long line as what happened that evening. It really was the most amazing evening. First to see Ron Paul in person and up close and to meet and be able to talk to so many awake and aware people in one room! WOW - Totally Cool and exciting!

The place was packed and the dinner had sold out. The room handled 850 max. from what the website says. People drove in from the surrounding states to see him.

Ron Paul spoke over half an hour. I was not able to get all the speech but I got most of it. What I didn't get was the "solutions" to the problems in the U.S., which he said is to only elect those who are Liberty and Freedom minded for government positions.

There were many "expensive tables" right in front. I observed those people at times during Dr. Paul's speech. Their looks and demeanor said it all! They were not interested in "ending the Fed" nor hearing how all the past presidents, Democratic and Republican have gotten us into wars (Bush) we never should have been in and it was really about big business. He said that the U.S is a welfare state but it is not really the poor, the money goes to but to the "super rich" banks, military industrial complex and other big businesses. He said they are the ones who are really getting all the money from the people. It is not the poor that benefit but the big business benefits from the welfare state of the U.S. (that portions starts about the 22 minute of the video) The system is bias against the poor it is destroying the middle class through inflation and the super rich are benefitting.

He spoke so much TRUTH, it was Completely AWESOME!

Local News Coverage:

Ron Paul draws huge Lincoln Day crowd in Knoxville
Preaches new institute, policies to reach 'younger generation'

By Georgiana Vines
Posted April 12, 2013 at 8:50 p.m.

Ron Paul, former Texas congressman and presidential contender, brought his message of balanced federal budgets and non-interventionism in foreign policy to the Knox County Republican faithful Friday night for one of the largest crowds ever to attend a Lincoln Day dinner in Knoxville.

Paul, a personal friend of U.S. Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., R-Knoxville, is forming an Institute for Peace and Prosperity to work on what he called “frustration” with foreign policies because Democrats and Republicans “pretend” during elections they have different policies but really don’t, he said. He said he expects the institute to attract Democrats, Republicans and libertarians, which is what he really is, along with constitutionalists and others.

He made the comments at a news conference prior to the dinner at Rothchild’s Catering and Conference Center in West Knoxville. He was introduced by Duncan, who will be a member of the Institute’s board of advisers.

Fantastic Event!

I was ashamed of my fellow TNeans for rushing Dr. Paul as soon as he took his seat and was trying to eat. Aside from Congressman Duncan and Dr. Paul, every person that spoke was clueless it seemed to me. If the Knox GOP is confused as to why they can't attract the youth vote they just needed to listen to any of the speakers outside of Duncan and Paul.

I was there

Was so happy to have Ron Paul come to Tennessee, it seems rare the he makes it to our state. I drove 2-3 hours to see him and managed to get a picture with him, he's been my favorite political figure since the 2008 election.

Difference in Energy

I personally doubt we'll see the same enthusiastic crowd for a Rand Paul as we see for Ron Paul. Ron really is in a league of his own, isn't he? No dancing, or being careful with what he says. Just speaks his mind. No showmanship. Not posturing for political points. Just down right honest. Even if Rand held the same political policy viewpoints, he is not Ron Paul! I doubt we'll see the grassroots videos, or other outlandish efforts we saw during the RP campaigns. Forgive me, but I'm still holding out a bit of hope for a Ron Paul 2016 campaign :-)

Another YouTube...

I was there and got a bit better video and audio. I've been trying to recode the video so I can upload it (it's 4gb!) and so far I was not happy with the results so I've used some new settings and I expect I will be able to upload it to youtube later tonight and I'll post the link here as soon as I get it.

(P.S. I'm the one with the Ron Paul Liberty Corvette).

Beware the cult of "government"...

NICE!!!

always wondered who's vette that was!

will update with new uploads...

Would be nice if Ron Paul had

Would be nice if Ron Paul had a production crew for all of these events he is planning to give the rest of us pro quality recordings for now and history. I wonder if we could raise money to hire a crew and gear to follow Ron and record the tour and his speeches at these events in a quality format.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

Yup, I always thought he should've done the same during RP2012,

but I figure, if he didn't do it for POTUS run, he probably won't, do it now, either...maybe...

besides, I think many mid-to upper range smartphones have 720p or 1080p quality now. so it'll be probably more cheap, and he probably expects us to.D lol.

it's weird, but I kinda prefer the cinema verite feel of each attendee doing it from their own angles and visual montage and music. besides, it sadly forces us to remain addicted to constantly searching YouTube for a daily 'RP-fix' lol.

yes, sad I know. I thought I could kick the habit, but nope. just when you thought you were out, RP pulls you back in! arghghghghg! xD

GOP here said...never had the dinner with so many people and the long lines to talk to Dr. Paul.

But, the man garnered no votes, has no support, is a fringe flash-in-the-pan.

Glad to keep seeing that logic destroyed over and over again.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

seriously, Dr. Paul's 'opponents' from 2008 & 2012 won't even

be a fungus on the footnotes of footnotes of history, when it's written.

anyone see them lining up for Ghouliani, John McNutt, Fred Dullson, Fachmann, Frothy, Nut Grinch, or Mutt Wrongney?

Or, ever hear anyone claim: Frothy inspired me to read econ books, and study philosophy!

thankfully, no. er...actually, wouldn't it be scary, if he did..er...'inspire' a poor sad gullible soul? LOL.

Ideas live on! And our favorite Septuagenarian, too, of course.D

Gauging his speech at Oberlin College as well, he seems even more assertive and fired up!

May he live on and the philosophy engender a roaring flame in millions of remnants to come!

I could only wish to be that healthy, sharp, and busy, when I turn 77!
