Aug. 7, 2012 - PRLog -- In a recent announcement, the GOP has decided not to invite Ron Paul to speak at the Republican National Convention (RNC).  In an affront to Dr. Paul’s decades of work, the GOP has decided to ignore the most enthusiastic, fastest growing political movement in recent history; a movement that will bring as many as 500 supportive delegates to the convention floor. Unfortunately, the snubbing is nothing new for those in the Ron Paul camp, who have been treated with similar disdain for many years, if not decades.

In the previous election cycle, Ron Paul supporters were also excluded from the convention proceedings, causing a backlash that ended up in the creation of a mirror convention in nearby Minneapolis, dubbed the “Rally for the Republic.”  This year, however, there are MULTIPLE Ron Paul events, some only a few miles away.  First and foremost is the Ron Paul Rally at the USF Sun Dome, where the candidate will be addressing his delegates and will be open to the public.  The event is to take place for about 4 hours in the afternoon of Sunday August 26th.

The other major event is Paul Festival, a weekend-long festival being held at the Florida State Fairgrounds celebrating the founding father of the liberty movement and his contributions to the most vibrant segment of the GOP (tickets available at  In light of the recent snubbing, organizers have decided to offer an additional free pass for every ticket purchased.  This offer is also being made available retroactively to anyone who has already purchased a ticket.  The offer is good for all one-day and three-day passes (VIP passes and any other passes are excluded from the offer).

"Considering the economic plight that the country is in, we feel that it is imperative to promote real, substantive change and do everything we can to maximize the presence of our movement in Tampa to support Dr. Paul.  We want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend, show our numbers, and celebrate Ron Paul’s legacy through the great speakers and bands we have lined up for the event." said spokesperson Tracy Diaz.

In addition to these events, thousands of Ron Paul supporters are organizing affordable travel to Tampa via the convoy routes set up by "Ronvoy", "Rides for Ron Paul", and "Motorcycle Rides for Ron Paul".  "The cross-country trip with fellow Ron Paul supporters promises to be the experience of a lifetime," said Paul Festival Travel and Lodging director, Susan Wolfe.

Following up after Paul Festival is the Veterans for Ron Paul's March on the RNC, with nearly 800 supporters registered to participate.  Organizers for the Veteran's March also have a plethora of events planned at "Camp Liberty", a seven-day camping event.

With the confluence of events and the convergence of the nationwide Liberty movement, supporters are primed to give Ron Paul and his legacy an unprecedented and unforgettable celebration.
