The Paul Festival Team!
At approximately 5:00PM CST, (Oklahoma time), the "Liberty Live Stream Team", will stream LIVE video and audio on this Ustream channel,
and will report to the best of their ability on proceedings at:
Oklahoma State Republican Headquarters:
4031 N Lincoln Blvd
Oklahoma City, OK
The purpose of the event, (meeting), is for each delegate/alternate from districts and with "At Large" status, to choose which candidate they will be bound to. Committee assignments will be made as well.
Main speakers and presenters will include Lukus Collins and Steve Dickson.
The national delegates/alternates from the "Parking Lot Convention" will be in attendance as they will press the issue of the legitimacy of the continuation of the convention in the "Parking Lot" and the selection of delegates and alternates there.
Haha! They are like deer in the headlights right now..
"Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said the biggest danger facing the Mitt Romney campaign was the “Ron Paul forces.”
Gingrich, in an appearance on Sean Hannity Radio Monday, warned that the Republican National Convention could get out of hand if the Romney campaign didn’t come with a clear plan. “I think the biggest danger in the short run is that they not think through how they’re going to handle the convention in Tampa, and how they’re going to handle the Ron Paul forces,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich was at the state convention in Georgia last weekend and said the ”Ron Paul people” were out in force. “In the end they lost, but there were a couple of hours when it was pretty raucous,” Gingrich said. “As you know, the Ron Paul people won in Minnesota. I think they won in a number of other states. And so they’ve got a pretty good contingent.”
In the May 22 Arkansas and Kentucky Presidential Primaries, Dr. Paul saw his total votes, and vote share, substantially increase when compared with 2008:
2008: 10,983 (4.79% of vote)
2012: 20,264 (13.42% of vote)
84.50% increase in total votes, 180.17% increase in percentage of vote
2008: 13,427 (6.79% of vote)
2012: 22,071 (12.53% of vote)
I am running for President of my class in my high school. Today, there was an open forum where a member of the faculty asked the candidates questions and the students would listen.
The other candidates and I went through some relatively easy questions, no big deal. Then came the question, who is one person who is alive that you would consider your role model? Others answered the question first, and then it came to me.
I said, "Congressman Ron Paul."
Immediately, I got the LOUDEST applause from essentially EVERYONE in the room, and there was no louder applause before or after that!

Mitt Romney has experienced an eleven point swing in his poll numbers vs. President Obama in just over one week, according to a daily tracking poll of likely voters from Rasmussen Reports. Just over a week ago, Romney was leading President Obama by eight percentage points at 50 - 42%. In today's poll, the President leads Romney by three percentage points at 47 - 44%.
While it is early in the election season, such a dramatic shift in the President's favor cannot be seen as good news for Governor Romney.
To make matters worse for the Romney team, Congressman Paul continues to gain on Romney by racking up delegates in state after state. This weekend, Congressman Paul won thirty-two out of forty delegates in Minnesota, further narrowing Governor Romney's delegate lead heading into the GOP national convention in August.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — An overwhelming majority of the Minnesota delegation to this summer's Republican National Convention will be going to Tampa, Fla., as Ron Paul delegates.
The Texas congressman had a huge influence on last weekend's Minnesota GOP convention in St. Cloud. Beyond nearly sweeping the national delegates, state Rep. Kurt Bills, Paul's endorsed candidate to take on Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar this fall, won the GOP endorsement over two other Republicans.
Paul, a Republican presidential candidate, was on hand for both days of the Minnesota Republican convention, his presence carefully choreographed to appease the large contingent of his supporters.
Our beloved reporter/news hero has an incredible background that I didn't realize.
High school graduate at age 11 (Homeschool)
College degree (Liberal Arts) from BYU at age 15
Master's (History) from California State at age 16.
Originally wanted to become a minister and has already been an assistant pastor and youth minister at a Presbyterian Church in Portland
As if I couldn't have more respect for this man.
... Hannity was asking Newt what Romney's first big challenge would be in the campaign from here on out. Newt said Romney has to deal with Ron Paul at the convention (At that point I was jumping up and down - LOL), and Hannity was eerily ... i'll repeat eerily silent when Newt said that .... Hannity didn't say a word after that .... It was rather awkward. I think Hannity was caught off guard by Newt saying that. Then he changed the topic to something else about the campaign.
Hannity's scared to death of the Ron Paul movement, because he knows if .... no, rather WHEN that movement takes over, it's the end of his show - LOL!
In this interview with event spokesman Josh Tolley!
"Burns & Poe is country-soaked, adrenaline-driven, fun-lovin’, on the rocks entertainment that makes for a don’t-blink, hold-tight, roller-coaster-of-a-ride, live show. The best part…it’s 100% pure Burns & Poe.
The Campaign may have given up on Primaries, but we haven't.
On June 5th, 2012, registered Republicans in South Dakota will vote in the Republican presidential primary. Recently, the official Ron Paul campaign announced it will fully channel its financial resources and staff to delegate and convention operations instead of upcoming primary states, like South Dakota. Consequently, it's up to grassroots supporters of Dr. Paul and his message, to carry the torch and deliver a strong showing on June 5th.
Please help us out. We need to try and raise between $10,000 and $25,000 in the next week or so for this to have maximum effect. We already have a few big donors lined up but every little bit helps.
Following the 2012 nomination, win or lose, the movement and community that has coalesced around Dr. Paul's ideas will have some decisions to make about the future.
Time, resources, and energy are always limited, and how we spend them will be an important choice we have to make as individuals, small groups and collectively as a movement.

A Statement from Tea Party Groups of New Jersey
Monmouth County Tea Party Coalition | Ocean County Citizens For Freedom | Bayshore Tea Party Group | Tea Party of Middlesex County
No longer will we be forced by both political parties and the media to choose between the lesser of two evils. We say, not on our watch will we ever give in to this sort of tyranny again. This game ends right here, right now! Endorsing Mitt Romney and his record of left-leaning policies would be a complete hypocrisy that collides with everything the Tea Party Movement stands for.
So, it is with great pleasure and honor that We of the above mentioned Tea Party Groups of New Jersey, announce our full endorsement of Dr. Ron Paul for President of The United States of America 2012. Dr. Paul's 20+ year voting record as an ardent constitutional conservative speaks profoundly of his integrity both as a representative of the people and as a human being. Dr. Paul's message of Limited Constitutional Government and Individual Liberty is what motivated the Tea Parties into action to begin with and this message will continue to resonate within our movement until America is restored to her former glory and is once again a beacon of freedom.
