Ron Paul Freedom Rally’s

Speaking of Ron Paul… here is a press release I received last night:

If they expected us to retire quietly from the scene, the political elite are in for a surprise.

Today I am making some very big announcements.

First, from August 31 to September 2 in Minneapolis, we will host a handful of events that will shake the political establishment. Everything will culminate on Tuesday with the official launch of the Campaign for Liberty at the Rally for the Republic.

The Campaign for Liberty will be the largest organization for peace, freedom, the Constitution, and sound money in American history. It will launch in grand fashion with lots of special guests and – if the early television and print inquiries we’ve received are any indication – plenty of media attention.

I would like to personally invite you and your family to join me and thousands of others in Minneapolis for these events and send a message to the Republican Party.

Tickets will go on sale for the Rally for the Republic this Friday, July 25 @ 10AM CST. We want this to be an unforgettable day, so we are holding a ticket bomb all day Friday in the tradition of our famous money bombs. How many seats can we sell on the first day?

In patriotic fashion all tickets will cost $17.76, so you can afford to bring the whole family.

This leads me to the second big announcement. After measuring the excitement and enthusiasm, we decided that the Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota was just too small to hold you. Therefore, we are making a significant upgrade. The Rally for the Republic will now take place at the Target Center, the largest arena in Minneapolis !

This promises to be the most spirited and provocative political event of the year! We held some very large rallies during the presidential campaign, but I have never attempted anything of this scale before. Its success rests entirely in your hands.

Later this week I will announce two internationally renowned musicians as headliners for the Rally for the Republic. We’ll also be joined by rock star Aimee Allen, NBC’s Tucker Carlson, Barry Goldwater Jr., Gov. Gary Johnson, conservative stalwart Grover Norquist former Reagan deputy Attorney General Bruce Fein, presidential historian Doug Wead, MTV’s Adam Curry, musician Mark Scibilia , and Frank Sinatra impersonator Rick Ellis . Other special guests will be announced soon.

My staff has been working overtime to provide you with three full days of entertainment. Please visit the schedule page of the website and read all about upcoming events. We also have a lodging page to help you find?accommodations in Minneapolis.

Together we are taking back our government and restoring the republic. Please join me in Minneapolis to kickoff the Campaign for Liberty and support our Revolution. Can I count on you to be there?

I hope our LP folk in Minnesota will be out there in force!

    It never fails. I live in Minneapolis for 3 months of prime event time during the summer, and five days after I head back to school, everything happens.

    I live ten blocks from Target Center, for chrissakes.

    Yeah, and he’ll draw the usual couple thousand of rabid fanboys and -girls, who think Their Guy has any chance at all of getting anywhere.

    Then, when he pulls 0.5% of the electorate (tops), everyone will wail and moan about How Unfair Life Is, and How Stupid People Are.

    Lunch time.

    Was there a time when politicians put on their show and some how made do by passing a hat at the right time?

    Or are we seeing an era when politicians speak only to their chosen after all tickets have been sold?

    “I hope our LP folk in Minnesota will be out there in force!”

    in Minnesota!?

    You’d have more of a chance of getting a large force of Minnesota kangaroo farmers to the Target Center.

    If Rep. Paul had been willing to disavow neo-Nazi support and return their donations to his campaign, I’d be more impressed. If he was willing to address international relations relative to 2008 instead of 1808, I’d be more impressed. But until libertarians can come up with a candidate whose response to international issues is something other than to pretend they don’t exist, I’m not going to take libertarianism seriously.

    Oh, and I’m a Minnesota resident currently on vacation in Florida. I’ve seen more Ron Paul yard signs in the past three days that I have in the past six months. Launching his campaign in Minnesota? The only reason I can think of, is he got a heckofa deal (TM) on the Target Center.

    Ron Paul has support everywhere…but Minneapolis is host to the RNC thats why a counter rally is being held there…maybe you should use some of that free time to raise your level of awareness…
