According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Ron Paul has planned a convention at a convention center in Minneapolis to coincide with the GOP’s national convention in the same city. You can read the article at this link: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/mostread/ s_571996.html
Since this information is not corroborated on Ron Paul’s own website (RonPaul2008.com), I am taking it with a grain of salt.
I think it would be much better and get much more notice and publicity if we were to swamp the actual convention instead of one in another arena. Having the event separate means the national press can more or less pretend it’s not going on and ignore it. Ruining (or disrupting) the regular GOP convention, however, will cause an uproar and get a lot of press.
I’m thinking along the lines of the 9/11 Truthers who infiltrate events as “normal” goers and then start asking poignant questions that get them removed because the people running the show get scared.
A couple thousand people in the convention who begin doing this sort of thing, coupled with several thousand more outside protesting Ron Paul’s exclusion itself, would make a great highlight to how the GOP has been usurped and is under the control of the neo-cons and powers-that-be.
Ruin it for the Republicans and let the Democrats have it this time. The GOP has proven it’s worthlessness and needs to be removed like the weed it is. Then maybe we can do the same to the Dems next…
