The March on Washington

Well, so what did you think? That we'd elect Ron Paul to be President, then everything would be fine? Then we could all sit back and relax and enjoy our freedom?

Not a chance. Whether we can get our man into the White House or not, the fight for liberty is never ending. It requires all of us, doing everything we can to protect the fragile flame of liberty. This is the main message that I took away from Dr. Paul's latest video update (released on 2/12)

If you haven't seen it, please watch it! In the video, Dr. Paul calls for a massive march on Washington, planned by us - the grassroots. This fight is just beginning, and it will take all of us.

I've set up a new forum area in the Forums section of the site dedicated to the March on Washington. And if you need more inspiration, watch the video video below, titled, "We are the ones we've been waiting for" (thank you IronMan). Dr. Paul has cured our apathy. Now that we are free of that wretched disease, it is time to continue with our work.

Onward to Washington!

Go to www.restoretherepublic.com and vote on which day you like best for the Ron Paul March on Washington. Dr. Paul stated he prefers the July 4th weekend but so far June 21st Constitution Day is leading.

Not to be a drag but

It's really a question that has to be asked of the City of D.C. first to see what dates are open.

Not because they 'own' us. We need to see if other events will conflict.

Personally - we need all the time we can get to plan - this is a complicated and expensive thing to pull off nowadays.

And July 4th is not the day we want to be there. Everything will be maxed out - hotels - traffic - heat & humidity.

I like June 21st. And I voted.

Thanks for the post Fountainhead

200 - 300 Volunteers Needed

This event will require at least 200-300 volunteers.

The 2 biggest jobs are;
1. Set-up/Tear down
2. Security

I've been involved in producing two events on the Mall.

HQ email freedommarch@ronpaul2008.com

We need to support HQ. They will need all the help they can get. This is a risky proposition. Time for the best team players we have to step forward.

the March / Rally on Washington D.C.

While a lot of weekends could be good for the walk, I want to point out that in order to get the numbers big enough to make an impression, there will need to be a lot of people coming from a long way away. We live in Oregon, and it is going to be a major undertaking for us, as it will be I'm sure for a lot of people.

Any date before school is out for the summer is going to make it hard for a lot of people with children to take the time. For that reason, I want to go on record suggesting the the 4th of July. We do not want to miss it, but if it is held on Memorial Day, we will have tons of time obligations here the week before and after, making it even harder to go, and preventing us from taking advantage of being in the nation's capitol for the first time, which would be nice after spending the money to go!

It would not be as difficult for everyone to get to their own state capitols during a weekend before school is out. I know time is of the essence. Perhaps we should consider the state marches as a lead-in to the big one in Washington? Just a thought. Either way we will be there!

"The US federal reserve is the only entity that can take a valuable commodity like paper, and make it worthless simply by applying ink"

"The US federal government is the only entity that can take a valuable commodity like paper, and make it valueless simply by applying ink"

I am also from Oregon

I have to agree with you. I do not think we can put a price on freedom, but I also realize that time frames play a factor in this all. Even though I am thousands of miles away from DC, I am gonna give it my best to go. I have a forum post about having a second set of marches at state capitols after Washington DC. Here is the link to my post let me know what you think.

they have several dates to vote on and looks like June 21 is ahead. Most feel however, date will be finalized by official campaign of course.

A Modest Proposal

A Modest Proposal:

Ron Paul Revolution:
“March to Restore the Constitution”
June 21, 2008

VISION: Restore the Constitution and Bill of Rights for Our Children

MISSION: Get out Ron Paul’s message, break the MSM blackout and
educate America

STRATEGY: A red, white and blue Freedom March on
Washington to “Restore the Constitution and
Bill of Rights” led by Ron Paul and Rolling Thunder to
the Mall for speakers and concert

TACTIC: Follow-up red, white and blue July 4, 2008, Ron Paul
Revolution Picnic with speakers and concerts on each
state capitol’s lawn

These dates provide both symbolism and practicality. Other weekends in Washington will be described by MSM as mostly tourists to minimize our numbers. When our nonviolent Revolution arrives we want them to know how many we really are without leaving any doubt. The July 4th follow-up would probably be huge after Washington and give those at home an opportunity to join us to let MSM know our numbers continue to grow. Ron Paul Revolution media must secure our broadcast streaming over the internet to every available media outlet for simulcast to the world. It’s time to put up, show up, stand up and be counted like our founding fathers and mothers. I believe we could include the convoy from the west which would grow moving east and parade into Washington with over 1.5 million people in attendance. The July 4th Revolutionary Picnic easily could draw over 50,000 people to most state capitols that Friday and would force local and state media coverage through the weekend. It is not just about an election; it’s about restoring our God given Rights and the Constitution for our children. I believe we are many more than what we think or imagine. Truth is on our side and it is very powerful. It’s time for We The People to do what is Right for US and our children.

Agree

Good post **** Four stars

The Seeds of Truth we Plant today will grow to be the Tree of Freedom tommorow.

I personally like your idea

Hey james3, I made a post about this a few days back....well a similar post, and I really like the idea of a march/ picnic after the DC march. And July 4th would be ideal. Some people have commented negative stuff on my forum post, but I stand behind my belief. They think I am dividing the DC march, but I am not. I like you think that we need to be heard. Some say we should put it on the back burner until after the march in DC....I am not against that at all, in fact maybe it would be good. I am just glad to see people with ideas like you and I. Here is my post link if you are curios to what I proposed http://www.dailypaul.com/node/38204
Anyway, I say let us first do Washington DC, but let us not forget the power of local gathering.

"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:22)

The Plan

I was unaware of your post. Glad you agree. Here's the entire plan: It includes three (3) events. First, the March to Restore the Constitution on June 21, 2008, to Washington. Next, reinforce it with the July 4, 2008, Ron Paul Revolution Picnics at each state capitol. And finally, a huge march with a mass rally of Ron Paul Revolutionaries surrounding the Republican convention in St. Paul, MN in September. That should get us MSM attention, educate the public and let the world know we represent millions of Americans. Much can happen between now and Election Day!

New National Meet Up!

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/1806/
it is a meet up that is intended to over take the GOP and bring the principles of conservatism back to the Party.

a continuation of the revolution for after the election, whether Dr Paul wins or not.

DO NOT LET THE MESSAGGE DIE!

Is it possible to turn the email option off?

Let me know if the email option will be turned off or on for this group so I'll know if I need to sign up under another spam email account or not.

The Battle is ONE - The Revolution in Europe

Just wanted to share with you our fight in Europe.

This clip shows the battle going on in the European Parliament where a number of Members are not on the bandwagon. The battle is against NWO - Europe Division.

=P~

Perhaps the DC rally will be used by RP to gauge whether

there is enough support for a 3rd party run??? That was my first thought when he suggested it. See how committed we are and how many we are, although only a fraction of the support will actually make it to DC, it will be an indication of how widespread and dedicated the support is. What say you???

get evryone you can to go

no crazy stuff,no 9/11 stuff(we all know 9/11 doesnt add up but this isnt the time or place. burn ron paul dvds, and im thinking of burning 100 V movies and handing them out to every coworker i can. stick to the revolution theme. save the constitution.

keep in mind if it gets ugly we will be called terrorists

That would stop this revolution DEAD in it's tracks for sure!
We need peace 110% even when provoked by provacators
MLK's and Gandi's people absorded the beatings without retaliation!
passive civil disobeadiance (sit in's,marches,boycotts,hunger strikes)all peaceful on thier part not so peacefull by the oppision,the means do not justify the end! This is the law of the jungle ? lets show the Bushes and Clintons we caught on to their games ,and it dont work any longer!
I am pretty sure there are some people within RP movement have other plans then peace so we must all be aware the agents of death lurk among us and any one who says different is most likley in on some level
Raython,ge,cfr,mil in com,med ind com,pris ind , com,bushes/clinton, ROTHSCHILDS have money,power,brains,agents every where why would they not try to spearhead this RP thing from the inside?2300 $ is nothing when u set the price of gold every single morning for the world!EVELYN ROTHSCHILD aka CITY STATE OF LONDON! this shit is real yo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why do you think they call

Why do you think they call it a revolution? Because everyone is polite and stays inside the cage?

I'm bringing flowers

What's the one thing that has never happend in all the history of riots/revolutions? the cops joining in on the protest. Policemen and women are humans too and Americans, and most of them are really good people just doing what they're told. unfortunately what they're told to do is to comepletely undermine the freedoms of American citizens who wish only to make our country better. I say, lets give them flowers or something, hell, give them beer if they ask for it. Just talk to them, speak to them individually and ask them who they serve. what is there mission? why did they join? Police officers swore to uphold the law, and the law is there to serve the people, so i ask you, i beg you, officers of washington D.C. to join us. just this once, join the people you serve and stand with them instead of opposed. You are us, we are you, there is no difference. If i have to take a few battons to the head to spread the message of freedom and peace, i will, but just this once could we all stand together, non-violent, in a rally of peace? I'm dreaming, aren't i? ...I just don't want to see anymore film of protesters flipping off cops and cops beating on civilians. What could be more pointless and unamerican than such violence and hate in a land where we should be united.

Um...

Where are the offices of Fox, CNN, etc. in Washington?

Is it illegal for someone to suggest that others storm the offices of a private business or two (or 6)?

No...Take five hundred of

No...Take five hundred of your friends and go ask for a facilities tour. :)

crunching some numbers

I was reading a thread on Daily Paul earlier about a study of how large groups of people think. The study stated that it only takes about 5% of the population to change the direction of the rest of the 95%. So the population of the US is about 300 million, 5% of that is 15 million. The status quo knows that they only need to have riot police to control the rebellious 5% in order to control the 95%. So the march on Washington needs to have Ron Paul supporters showing up en masse. I don't know if we have 15 million RP supporters in the US. The march won't be effective if there are not enough people there. What do you guys think?

I don't think we're quite to

I don't think we're quite to the point yet where 15 million people are ready to riot in the streets. lol.

no...

the march is to get our message across, not to riot in the streets...

Agree

We need to have the RP core college crowd there. I'm sure we could get the anti - war groups, some veterans groups and gun clubs etc. to march with us once we set a date. When the date is firm we can let them know.

Read Down a Bit this was already stated..

Don't you want to march on the capital when congress is in session? We have to send them a message and show them that we are serious!

That was the purpose of this March. We don't have time and we have to let "the powers that be" know we're not going to stand for it anymore.

But we also have to let them know that we stand behind Ron Paul & what he believes in. Remember, He wants to bring the troops home, abolish the ABC government institutions, the Patriot Act etc.

Therefore, There will be many demonstration signs that say "Bring Our Troops Home", "The media is corrupt"...etc.

We CANNOT make this a RALLY for RP, because

what we need is to SEND A MESSAGE that thousands upon thousands are "marching on D.C." for many reasons!

Yes, RP can lead us, but we will be able to have many more people join us if we broaden our PURPOSE in MARCHING ON D.C., capische?

I'm not saying we can't have any RP for Pres. signs, yes, I see that we could have a FEW, but mostly our signs would be many of the following:

The WAR is an OCCUPATION
Stop the Occupation

D.C. is corrupt
The MEDIA is corrupt
The MEDIA is full of PROPAGANDA

etc. etc. etc. Get the point?

BECAUSE if we make this a HUGE RALLY for Dr. Paul, we're not coming, period, and we are AVID supporters since August and have given thousands of dollars personally. But, think about this:

I fear the MEDIA, if we just focus on RP signs, will dismiss this as just that, a RP rally, BUT if they just see MOSTLY ANTI-WAR, ANTI-SENTIMENT signs of all kinds, then, they will report it without the SLANT, see what I mean?
