Ron Paul coming to Northern California April 9th! Speech, and private reception/book signing

Wednesday, 9 April 2014
Co-Sponsored by The Smith Center for Private Enterprise Studies
College of Business and Economics

California State University, East Bay, Hayward, CA and
The Independent Institute

At this special event, Ron Paul will take a candid look at America's increasingly dysfunctional political system. Drawing on his 24 years in Congress, he will highlight the need to rein in unchecked government power.

The author of numerous #1 New York Times bestselling books, Dr. Paul is a leading advocate for individual liberty, privacy, limited constitutional government, low taxes and spending, free markets, restrained foreign policy, and sound money. The New York Post has called him a man who "cannot be bought by special interests. There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles." And, Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him "The Thomas Jefferson of our day."

Crowd shot

Also as posted in the other parallel thread (http://www.dailypaul.com/316441/ron-paul-defines-liberty-at-...) :

I can clearly see myself in the picture below. This photograph gives a very good idea about the good sized turnout.

Great turnout

Came back from this now. It was an amazingly good turnout. Far more than I had expected, considering this is somewhat politically quiet period. (Yes, I know about the California governor election. But it hasn't become very high profile matter yet.) Of course, Ron Paul's talks aren't really political talks or much of campaign events. They're philosophical discussions.

The Cal State East Bay theater is a midsize auditorium on a community college campus. I was amazed to see that it was jam packed. From what I gathered, even more overflow crowd was watching live on a video link in a nearby room.

Ron Paul is 79 years old now if I'm not mistaken. But physical age is just a number. He looks nowhere close to an old tiring man. But there is absolutely no way he will himself be involved in any more running for elections. I reckon he will give speeches here and there for his son's campaign. But I can't imagine him subjecting himself to full election madness.

He spoke for a lot longer than alloted time. I estimate he went over by some 5 to 10 minutes. But it was definitely worth it. The subject of the talk was standard. The same conversation we've heard so many times before. But it was a previlege listening to him in person from so up-close.
