I just got back from Fort Worth where I attended the Texas GOP Straw Poll to campaign for Ron Paul. I arrived Thursday night and went to the beginning of registration on Friday morning. I got in as a guest and spent a lot of time handing out invitations for the party held for Ron Paul that night and Ron Paul stickers to delegates.
That night, I attended the party for Ron Paul where a fund raising auction was held. Dr. Paul spoke and gave an electrifying speech. I was gratified to see several of my pro-life colleagues who had exhibit tables at the Straw Poll attend his speech. Jimmy Lee Vaughn provided the music.
On Saturday, we gathered at the Worthington Hotel for a parade to the Convention Center where the Poll was being held. I was asked to skip the parade to go help Ron Paul supporters stake out seats in room where the candidates were going to speak and to hand out literature to the delegates. One of the members of my meetup group filmed the following video.
You will see two very interesting things in this video. First, you will see a replica of the Liberty Bell mounted on a wagon with the Ten Commandments. This same replica of the Liberty Bell was in Crawford two years ago at the Support the Troops event that I attended. Here, it is in the march for Ron Paul with Ron Paul signs on it–though the owner isn’t endorsing a candidate, I’ve heard.
The second thing you will see is the Granny Warriors Van. They too, were in Crawford to protest Cindy Sheehan–though they made it clear that they didn’t particularly support the Iraq War either. Now, they tour the country campaigning for Ron Paul.
I went to Crawford two years ago to protest Cindy Sheehan. I, too, support Ron Paul and his views on the Iraq War. He believes that an undeclared war is unconstitutional.
Finally, here is better video of the march:
Towards the end, he rings the Liberty Bell.
