Rally for the Republic 09/2008

Ron Paul‘s historic Rally for the Republic took place in Minneapolis on September 2, 2008. More than 10,000 lovers of liberty gathered in the Target Center in Minneapolis across the river from the RNC convention that same day. The Rally was was not a protest, or a “counter convention” – it was a celebration. And it was not the end of the Ron Paul Revolution – it was the beginning.

    Ron Paul is one of the greats to ever walk the earth. GOD BLESS HIM. I really wish he was the republican candidate this year. It’s too bad that we have candidates like turd sandwich Barack “Insane” Obama vs Giant Douche John McCinsane. To hell with them and their dumb policies and I am sick and tired of these liars and cheats. May America wake up and smell what these 2 candidates really are and who Ron Paul is. He is a true hero.

    As Ron Paul stated in his speach this message will not go away. We need to get a Constitution Party started in every State.

    It just goes to show how Ron Paul is not out to promote himself or puff himself up, unlike the Dems and repubs, Ron Paul stands for everything that the majoritry of people in our Government do not.

    Ron Paul teaches the Constitution and stands for the way our Government is supposed to but fail miserably.

    I salute you Ron Paul.

    There has to be a way that all of Ron Paul supporters can send in a partition signed by all of up requesting Ron Paul to be put on the ballot. They stopped the delegates from voting for him. Nothing is different from the the last four elections. It was still fraud. There has got to be a way ??????????????????

    I loved the convention. Wished I could have been there in person. The question I pose and maybe others do as well. Can we vote for Ron Paul on November 4th. Will this benefit him. Is he running for President? He did not give the impression he was running for President in his speech. Are we waiting until the last minute to surprise everyone? Keep me informed. Thank you

    You need to be alerted to the shenanigans of AOL. The website has created a site for polling supporters or opponents of Ron Paul as to which group is more numerous. A second poll is entitled, “what’s your take on him overall”. The first poll places a “no” as 1st choice, with “yes”, second. This is exactly the reverse of normal procedure. It has succeeded in creating a negative image of the general support for the congressman. I fell for it. Any proof? The next poll has 3 categories: mostly positive, mostly negative, or neutral.

    The mostly positive totals exctly equal the “no” totals. The mostly negative, and neutral totals equal the “yes” totals. The results have been deliberately skewed.

    What is interesting, should the neutral 20% have been added to what should have been have the 55% yes vote 75% of those voting would have been receptive to the congressman.

    All the best results to Dr. Paul.

    Rally for the Republic will this event be televised

    I’m surprised Mr. Paul would sell tickets through Ticketmaster where a $15 ticket becomes a $30 ticket in a blink. You know, $4 for reading the order, $4 for stuffing the tix in an envelope, $4.00 for licking the envelope, $4 just because I’m a schmuck…….etc, etc….

  • I cannot believe, much less comprehend, how McCain and Obama ever got nominated for the highest office in the WORLD!! I have since lost all faith in the entire system of voting in this country. If I can’t vote for a person; man, woman, black, white, whatever, that is running on his merit, sincerity and experience as an honest politician (are there any left?), I choose not to vote for anyone!

    I agree with Jeff Bronson about getting around. It will be doubly difficult for people with limited mobility or in wheelchairs like me. We will be in the area so I definitely want to attend but don’t know if it will be possible.

    I flew from California (my first flight ever, by the way) to see Ron Paul and people like him speak at the rally, and to meet new friends during the march in D.C.

    September 2nd will be my next flight to show Dr. Paul that he has a strong following.

    I will also swing by the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank (at 90 Hennepin Ave- 1 block NE of the corner of Hennepin and Washignton) for some sarcastic photos before the rally.

    hope to see some people there.

  • I am coming. This convention is going to be very informative and Id love to see ron paul speak. 🙂
