I was one of many Ron Paul foot soldiers, at the 'Battle of Spartanburg', who fired shots with my Dell musket to defend Dr. Paul's honor. I aimed my shot at the reporter, and fired a copy volley at Mr. Beltram. They both returned what I perceived to be 'friendly fire'. I was proud of the rapid, but controlled precision of the Ron Paul brigade who joined me in the battle...doing so in a 'Revolutionary Ron Paul' fashion. I think this was certainly a positive factor to help Mr. Beltram soften his views on Dr. Paul's coming to Spartanburg.
