"Most supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul believe this Republican primary season has been marred by countless examples of GOP corruption. The vast majority of Paul’s supporters would like to see the unethical behavior exposed by the mainstream press and action taken against the perpetrators of the alleged infractions even if the exposure hurts the Republican Party."
I took part in my first Ron Paul Festival conference call tonight. It was a real pleasure to meet organizer Bryan Siemon on the telephone, & catch his excitement.
The first thing he told us was that the RNC had a hold on all the facilities in Tampa, in case they wanted to use them. So far, they've had no use for the Tampa Fairgrounds & the fairgrounds wants to host the RP Festival, yet the RNC won't release the fairgrounds to sign the contract. Siemon said their attorney has FOIA'd the fairground & the RNC for contract paperwork that would support them not releasing the fairgrounds. The RNC doesn't have to play ball on the FOIA, but the fairgrounds must. Siemon sounded very confident that his group will get the fairgrounds in the end, and if not, there are alternatives. But, the RNC is not happy about this festival.
On that note, I suggested that Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Palin & the whole gang be invited to the festival! Speak, sign books, shake hands, have a sno cone! What a way to warm up for the national convention - no? Right now, the RNC is acting like we're amassing an army, when they need to know we're having a love-in for the Constitution. We definitely want to make love, NOT WAR - right?
We also discussed the idea of this festival being OUR convention, where EVERYONE can be a delegate for Ron Paul. Wouldn't that be a hoot?
Ron Paul supporters have revealed a plan to organize a "Ron Paul Festival" at the Republican National Convention which will take place in Tampa, Fla., during the week of August 27, 2012.
The anticipated convention is the event where delegates of the Republican Party are expected to choose the party’s nominees for President and Vice President, with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney poised to be nominated at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
But Ron Paul supporters are planning to “crash the party” with their recently announced "Ron Paul Festival" in which fervent fans of the libertarian icon will hold rallies, speeches and entertainment at the Florida State Fairgrounds (not far from where the convention will be held).
We're still hitting as hard as we can here in Ca. Our meet-up group had 2 events today, here's one of them! And this is a Wednesday! We're going full steam until Tuesdays primary!
Ron Paul fans will close out the Texas Congressman's third and final White House bid with a three-day festival/rally, scheduled to take place in Tampa immediately before the Republican National Convention.
Organizers are putting final touches on an agreement to host the event at the Florida State Fairgrounds, and are also reaching out to Paul-friendly activists, celebrities, and musicians to appear at the event.

Why I Am Endorsing Mitt Romney For President (And Not Ron Paul)
I understand that there are a number of Republicans (including Yours Truly) who are currently campaigning to become delegates to the Republican National Convention who have formerly expressed support for the presidential candidate, Ron Paul.
Like me, they may be running into some questions about their loyalty to the “presumptive candidate”, Mitt Romney.
When a day comes that even NPR 'gets' the reality of delegate process, you know Team Romney are gonna be a nervous train wreck all the way to Tampa!
For those who have participated and voted for nothing less than the full restoration of your Natural Rights, we salute you Texas R3VOL!!!
Even with their usual and typical MSM negative spin against Dr. Paul and our chances, they admit:
"Texas Rep. Ron Paul's supporters have attended other state conventions en masse and have won disproportionate numbers of delegates for Paul, so there is a reasonable chance that Iowa's delegate slate will be something other than the media estimates following the January voting."
This went out to 10,000 likely Republican Primary goers. We wanted to mail it out to 20,000 but we didn't raise enough money.
Please Help us at least do all the Radio we want to do!

Reality Check: Did Mitt Romney Really Secure GOP Nomination With Texas Win?
Ron Paul backers protest GOP hearing
“It’s hilarious that they would fight this hard for these (Romney) delegates,” he said. “It’s not going to change the outcome.” OH YES IT WILL!
MARLBOROUGH — Dozens of Ron Paul backers showed up at a state Republican Party meeting last night to protest what they say is a manipulation of power aimed at decreasing their influence at the party’s national convention.
A 14-member GOP committee charged with allocating delegates to the convention held a closed meeting at the Holiday Inn to discuss whether three delegates and three alternates selected at the Fifth Congressional District caucus should be invalidated.
None of the Romney-backed delegates won any of the six seats for the district which includes Wayland, Sudbury, Hudson and Stow. The district is anchored by Lowell, Lawrence and Haverhill.
One of the unsuccessful members of the Romney slate challenged the results.
Marlboro, MA Holiday Inn - May 29, 2012
Northstar Freedom's recent comment from today deserves its own headline because what he said is so important.
From Minnesota Experience... Please read.
Hey we won because of the alternates that showed up!
My wife was a 22nd alternate out of 25 Delegates and got seated on Saturday when we voted for our Ron Paul National delegates. It was because of these alternates that we won the State of Minnesota.
It's because of alternates that they won the State of Maine, it will be because of you that we will win the State of Washington.
