Brian in Chicago requests your help with an NBC interview take a look below:

If you had one chance to show the world the great importance of the Ron Paul campaign and the power of the peace and freedom message would you accept it?

I received a news request from NBC NIGHTLY NEWS to cover our Walk for Ron Paul tomorrow at Millennium Park in Chicago, Illinois at 11 AM central time. They found me as the Organizer for the Chicago Ron Paul meetup.com group, and wanted to get the word out to the public

Can we get 1,000+ supporters there to show the world how much we care about Ron Paul. If you care about Peace and Freedom you already know that Ron Paul is our last best hope for our country. Treat this opportunity as our last chance to get Ron Paul elected! Blow the socks of Chicago and the whole United States. This type of grassroots activism is 100% time more important than showing up at the ballot box. This is the type of event that can change America.

Doug Adams a producer at NBC Nightly News has contacted me and confirmed that they are working on a story about the Ron Paul campaign. The interviewed him at length last night and attended his speech at the Robert Taft Club in Arlington, Virginia. He wants to see lots of signs (on message of course) and lots of t-shirts. He wants to know if this Ron Paul movement is real, or if we are just only the internet. They will also be doing a photo opportunity/interview at my home. I am confident that I will do my best to represent the Ron Paul peace and freedom message.

Note this event is happening in close proximity to the Columbus Day Parade, so traffic for the event will be very large.

You can make or break this effort. I want banners on all of the highways leading to the event. Signs everywhere. Can you make this happen. Please make this go viral, let all of your friends and family know. We have 24 hours!


For directions and parking go to http://www.millenniumpark.org/

We will be meeting in the plaza on the north side of the famous Chicago “Bean” in the plaza you won’t be able to miss us. Please be cordial with the security at Millennium Park, we have worked with them two times before for other events and they were very great. They have rightfully requested us to make sure that all walkways to the “bean” are accessible and not blocked so that other tourists can access the site. For our walk the police provided for our safety as we walked on the sidewalk down Michigan Avenue and the Magnificent Mile. Let our enthusiasm be a shining example for Ron Paul and the Peace and Freedom movement.

In Liberty,

My wife, two daughters, and I drove all the way from Iowa City for this event. It was great. Definitely gets you excited to hear so many cars honk at you in support and people just look amazed because at times our line stretched for two blocks or more. It was great.

I have posted pictures from this event on Flickr. I haven't had time to organize them. Apparently Flickr wants money to have more than three sets of photos.

Drain the swamp!

Go Ron Paul!

Limbaugh Blows Off Ron Paul Question

This needs to get out and pressure needs to be brought to bear on Limbaugh. He's stonewalling Ron Paul.

Read the full story.

This isn't spam. Spread the word. Thanks.

Going to Chicago!

I just RSVP'D on the Chicago meetup groups site for the event. I believe that would be the easiest way to get the correct totals. Five of us are coming from St Louis so far. Can't wait!!


I wish you the best in your event. My suggestions would be as to behavior and attire: Positive, confident, and looking sharp! Maybe suits are too much to ask, but a jacket even with jeans looks great!

We're having a Ron Paul

We're having a Ron Paul Rally and Walk in Tyler, Texas tomorrow starting at 10 AM. We will walk from Bregfeld Park the the town square and back to the Park. Media said they would like a Press conference and shoot around 10:30. Expecting 50 to 100 Ron Paul supporters to show up.
Have a great one in Chicago and everywhere across the Republic.
Lets ROCK for Dr. Paul.

Great to here that about Tyler.

We will be in Plano TX doing our sign wave at Park and Preston, 2 weeks ago we had nearly 60 people out there. We hope to add to that this week.

It's going to be big!

I wish I could be there - it sounds like it will be a great event! We'll be having our own walks here in Sacramento and San Francisco, CA. Can't wait to see the coverage & interview from Chicago!!

RSVP List?

Might be a good idea to start some kind of RSVP that people can view to encourage them to come. I live two and half hours away and though I would love to be a part of an event like this, I'd like to be sure it's not going to be a handful of people. Seeing a growing list of committed people would encourage more people on the fence to come.

Perhaps something like http://www.thepetitionsite.com just to keep track of people?

Then those attending can pass the link around to get others on board.

I am pretty sure that I will

I am pretty sure that I will bring my wife and my two little girls. We are in Iowa City, and how much fun will this be?

You should put your info out there for the Chicago area on


There are several different sections for the entire Chicago area. This site is seen by thousand of people on a daily basis. The ads are free and you can post some pics there too (RP, group pics, rally pics, RP promotional). A good place to start is in the Craigslist rants & raves section. There are also sections for meetings, groups and organizations.

This site has been used very effectively in the past for other groups.
