The Republican Party didn’t make room for Ron Paul at the convention in St. Paul, so Paul and his supporters are making room across the river in Minneapolis. That’s right, it’s time for Ronstock ‘08 (although I think Paulapalooza would be a better name), complete with tents and people who don’t need drugs to act weird.

All across the nation, Paul supporters are loading up in Ronvoys and making the trip to what officially seems to be named Rally for the Republic where Paul and others will speak to a crowd of true-believers expected to number around 10,000 or more. No word what the speakers will actually discuss, but I’m sure it’ll involve the usual riveting topic of monetary policy.

This all sounds fairly organized and respectful for the Paulites. I was hoping they’d make a covert effort to invade the convention hall and start a ruckus. I guess they decided a legitimate event would provide their cause more coverage.

But will the media actually cover Ronstock ’08 or any other Paulite activities? Unlikely. But they can probably bank on The Daily Show sending a correspondent.

    Seriously, do you still have to have the cynicism and self-serving satire when describing anything about Paul? You can’t nail him on his voting record, so you pick out the minority of his followers and make the jabs with your 4 paragraph masterpiece.

    Remember, these are American people you’re making fun of. Your innuendos are far from funny and the article is worthy of bathroom wall publication.

    Try writing something balanced and insightful – it makes it so much more interesting for the reader. (Even the ones in tinfoil hats….) Leave the comedy to the pros – your attempt bored me to replying.

  • Dean — a little sensitive about the antics of your fellow Paul supporters? This wasn’t even that harsh of a post, man.

  • Constitutional Rally says it all. If that document was approved after the adoption of the Bill of Rights, we must hold them to it. “Them” being our elected officials. They need to serve us, the electors of “them. and not the lobbies that feed them money, especially the bankers, after Andrew Jacksons warning of their intentions back in 1835. The Central bankers are the real terrorists we need to defend ourselves against. See the damage they have done to our dollar. “Congress shall coin money and regulate the value thereof” Is that constitutional or not?

    Thats right idiots and sheeple. Vote for the people they permit you to vote for. God forbid there should be a candidate that makes sense, like Ron Paul. Just keep voting for the same garbage that has destroyed this country.

    It takes more courage to break from the lemming pack than to just jump over the cliff.

    Ron Paul should have been a democrat. He’s wasting his time trying to sway conservatives who have sold their souls to corporations decades ago.

    Uh oh, you made fun of Ron Paul on the internet! God save you.

    “Thats right idiots and sheeple. Vote for the people they permit you to vote for.”

    Uh, in all fairness Ron Paul had his chance, and he lost, sooooo…..yeah. Unless he wants to run on an independent ticket, it’s his own fault if people don’t vote for him, not “the establishment”. Also I love how anyone who votes other than you think they should is an idiot or “sheeple” (seriously, get creative with your name-calling, instead of using words that 12 year olds think are clever).

    “Ron Paul should have been a democrat.”

    Which would work fine until you consider all of his stances that often diametrically oppose those of the Democrats. He may be anti-Empire, but mostly just because he is an isolationist who thinks that the government spending any more than $100 annually is “big government”.
