All-America Walk in Support of Ron Paulâ€™s Freedom Message
Sunday, August 26, 2007
There are now 20 states with either planned participation in the August 26th nationally coordinated event or in the planning stages. Go to http://www.RonPaulRadio.U... and see the list at the right hand side of the page. There was a great teleconference on Saturday and 4 more states joined the list on the call.
If you have planned or are planning an activity in â€Support of Ron Paulâ€™s Freedom Messageâ€, PLEASE put it on your calendar on your Meetup group and email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the calendar entry to be included on the list of participating states. This helps us build momentum and gives us a better profile as we do outreach to media.
Please note that although this is being referred to as a "walk", some groups are looking at other creative forms of participation other than "walking". And that's great (though walking a long distance for a candidate does make a particular statement).
Here is a great video of Kelly Halldorsonâ€™s walk which inspired this whole thing. Must see! If one person can do so much, what can hundreds or thousands do?
Get InvolvedHereâ€™s a few things you can do to help make this event a success:
The Maryland State Fair is August 24-September 3. We will have space and supplies to promote the message and candidacy of our favorite candidate--Ron Paul--all we need is the (wo)man power to do so.
This is also our one and only opportunity to let the MD straw polls speak for Maryland with our vote for Ron Paul. We can vote anytime during the duration of the state fair with a valid state identification. In addition, Harold and Rebekah Forney have painted their truck with the Ron Paul for President 2008 and Hope for America. They will be attending the state fair with their truck and are planning an event where no fewer than 100 Ron Paul supporters will walk out of the truck. This "stunt" will be recorded and posted to youtube. It begins at 6:00 pm, Aug 28th, to participate, be there early if possible.) We will have extra "Ron Paul" shirts for those who do not have them.
Fair admission: Adult admission: $6, children 6 to 11: $3, children under 6 are admitted free

Hi, I'm an enthusiastic Ron Paul supporter that started a spreadsheet on

The continued steady growth is awesome. I know it warms my heart to see people taking personal responsibility action and joining such an historical moment in America's history.
Gambling911.com recently sent its reporter, Kira Wissman, out about town in the Pittsburgh, PA area trying to get a pulse on public opinion towards the 2008 Presidential elections as we are about to conclude the Summer of 2007. Questions such as: Have you heard of Ron Paul? Are you following the Presidential Elections? Do you think Hillary Clinton can win the Democratic Election? Do you think the media influences the course of the election?
"We should become alert and understand what motivates suicide terrorism," Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul told Joe Scarborough today on the host's MSNBC-TV Morning Joe program. Occupying other countries is such a force, Paul said, and "if you ignore that and go off and do the same thing that motivates terrorism, the problem gets worse. The chaos we created (in Iraq) actually has made our problems worse."
MSNBC has posted video from their exchange here.
On Sunday, August 5 I attended a baseball game at PNC Park in Pittsburgh and I wore a t-shirt asking people to Ask Me About Ron Paul. While waiting for friends outside of the ballpark a lady came up to me and asked if Iâ€™d speak to her and some others about Ron Paul and his candidacy for president.
As we walked over to where the others were gathered she, being aware that Dr. Paul had been in town to speak two days earlier but never having seen a picture of him, asked me, â€œAre you Ron Paul?â€ I smiled and said, "No", then went over to answer many good questions on a number of issues from her group.
Thanks to Matt for the tip:
Here is an e-mail I received minutes ago from national campaign headquarters. It's another wonderful message from Dr. Paul.

Not all the media are biased.Â A local newspaper in New Hampshire reported on an annual GOP bbq in the town of Hollis.Â It could be called "the Ron Paul show," they said, since the far bigger crowd that usual consisted mostly of our supporters.Â One volunteer even rented an airplane and flew a wonderful sign around the sky.Â What great, creative, self-starting people I'm meeting, at every stop, all of them united by a love of America and American freedom.
Pizza God sends the following pictures & report from the Sean Hannity Freedom Concert in Texas:
Here is a short video of the sign wave:

INDIANAPOLIS â€“ August 21, 2007 â€“ In July, Jeff and Amy Ready decided it was time to spread the word about the Ron Paul presidential campaign. The husband and wife team launched a simple website at http://RonPaul.SquareSpac... and from it, began sending free bumper stickers to Ron Paul supporters all over the country.
â€œWhen we would talk to people about the presidential election, the first question we would usually get was â€˜Who is Ron Paul?â€™ A few minutes later, those same people were fired up to support Ron Paul,â€ Ready said.

Today Ron Paul won the Ronald Reagan Club's South Sound Republican Straw Poll with a whopping 30%.
Ron Paul supporters turned out for the presidential straw poll held by the South Sound Ronald Reagan Republican club this evening. Supporters canvassed people as they entered, providing slim jim handouts. We used the one with the picture of Ron Paul with Ronald Reagan. The results were as follows:
Paul, 45 - 28%
Thompson, 40 - 25%
Giuliani, 29 - 18%
Huckabee, 12 - 8%
Romney 12 - 8%
Hunter, 10 - 6%
Gingrich, 8 - 5%
McCain, 3 - 2%
Brownback, 1 - 1%
Gilmore, 0 - 0%
Hagel, 0 - 0%
TOTAL 160 - 100%
Ron Paul and his supporters subsequently received generally favorable treatment by speaker Kirby Wilbur of KVI 570 AM talk radio.
While sitting with Ron at lunch he asked if I'd heard the radio interview that he'd done that morning...
I hadn't because that morning I'd been putting signs out at other stops and picking up the surprise birthday cake...and we were still eating so I did not want to tell him about the cake. I said I was not aware he was doing that show live, so I would find it on podcast..
Here it is...
