At last, here is the long-awaited synopsis of the Ron Paul Rally For Liberty in St. Paul, attended by Red State Eclectic's editor, Laura Ebke. While I haven't as much in common with the Campaign For Liberty as I thought I might (their paleo-conservatism is a few tics to the right of my posture on many issues) I have nothing but affection and respect for Dr. Paul and for RSE, where I used to blog some.
QUOTE The highlight, of course, was when Barry Goldwater Jr. introduced Ron Paul, and the good Doctor appeared on stage, and had red-white-blue confetti fall around him. The crowd went crazy--and a good chunk of us stood throughout his speech--in part because there wouldn't have been much point in sitting down, since we were on our feet cheering so much. It was a special time, and for an hour or so, it didn't matter what was happening on the other side of the river; we were there with OUR nominee accepting our nomination, we were celebrating our achievements, and we were committing ourselves to a long fight for liberty.
