Ron Paul’s anti-climactic convention festivities
Ron Paul duped us all. His bids for the Presidency were never meant to be successful. As Webster G. Tarpley would notate, Ron Paul was merely setting the stage for his son Rand.
Rather than attempting to do something truly revolutionary like crashing the RNC, thousands of Paul supporters are standing by idly with their thumbs up their butts as Mitt Romney is crowned king. -GJK
Raw Story — Ron Paul may not be speaking at the Republican convention but several thousands supporters gathered in Tampa on Saturday as part of a festival celebrating the libertarian-leaning Texan politician’s career.
With Paul stepping down from politics, and after repeated unsuccessful runs for the presidency, the event was part of a series of rallies aimed at galvanising his support base for a future without the retiring 12-term congressman.
The Paul Fest was held at the Florida State Fairgrounds, a half hour away from downtown Tampa where in a few days Mitt Romney will be nominated as his party’s candidate to battle President Barack Obama for the White House.
