Wow!  What a good time the Rally for the Republic was.  I arrived on Saturday to do some pre-rally exploring and found the local police-state to be overwhelming, yet friendly.  It was the kind of thing you were warned existed only in evil countries such as the Soviet Union when you were growing up.  Yet here it was, on the streets of Minneapolis in the United States of Amerika.  Cops dressed in military costumes everywhere you looked and in very large numbers.  Creepy.

Monday I ran into libertarian greats such as Angela Keaton and Anthony Gregory. We had lunch and some beers prior to attending the Celebration in Blaine. Good music was heard with Aimee Allen being the highlight of the night with her Ron Paul song. I suspect a good 1,000 – 2,000 were in attendance despite the very odd location. The neocon rag Reason was represented by the human rat himself, David Weigel. He was right in front of me talking to Angela when I wanted to blurt out: “Hey Weigel, are you here to trash Ron Paul again?”. Sure enough: here, here and here.

The after party was held back in Minneapolis at Clubhouse Jäger owned by a Ron Paul supporter. Steve Dore played and hundreds of Ron Paul supporters packed in. I stayed until about 1am hoping Ron Paul would show, but didn’t. I did have the honor of speaking with the founder of the Revolution, Ernie Hancock.  Great guy.  Butler Shaffer was there as well, although I didn’t get a chance to meet him.

All the way from Australia:

I am flying from Australia to the US this Thursday so I can also personally hand in my ballot for Ron Paul (you can see the actual ballot at the bottom of my homepage).

And from Germany:

On Monday, January 7, supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will meet in downtown Jackson, Michigan one week before the January 15 primary election to help spread the message of peace, smaller government, and personal liberty.

The rally centers on the homecoming of Jackson native Robert Douglass, who is returning from Germany to cast his absentee ballot #0001 for Ron Paul that day. Mr. Douglass is flying in from Germany that day to personally hand his ballot to the county clerk, and to rally with his fellow Jackson residents for ten-term Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

On a related note, Ron Paul overwhelmingly wins the vote of the world.
