    The young people are still following Ron Paul. They really do believe in him and right now aren’t giving any attention to the LP.

    Where’re the young people?

    Where’re the women and minorities?

    They have a youth group there for people UNDER 40?

    Too bad the anti-so-called “Fair Tax” posters misrepresented the rate of the sales tax. It is actually 30%.

    “Bunch of over 50 old farts? Where are the young people. A) can’t afford it and B) too busy with someone appealing to THEIR interests – antiwar, antitax, antifed, antiSocSec ripoff, no onerous regulations to smoke a little dope… sigh…”

    Yeah I noticed that too. Looks like a fancy retirement home in there.

    Numbers should increase today and again, slightly, on Saturday. I do want to know what the numbers are.

    Looks like a pretty small turnout. Wonder what the final count will be. (oh much discussion herein as to why!)
