The festivals were organized by Paul supporters who wish to continue his views of small government, non-intervention in foreign countries, and adherence to the United States Constitution in the event that Dr. Paul does not become the GOP’s candidate for the President of the United States.

Here is his speech:

    The link to the speech did not work for me, hopefully its just my computer. However, I saw the video previously and I though his speech was great. A great man. I was very impressed by his delivery, his ideas and his passion. Gary Johnson has continued to improve as a public speaker. I will be making another donation to his campaign come September 1st.

    Thanks for embedding the video, Paulie. Can you please call me when you have a minute, and remind me how to do it? I know what to click on the Youtube page, but I don’t remember where to put it in the Dashboard page.

    One of his best speeches I’ve seen. Definitely love seeing him get passionate about ending the wars. I think GJ’s been getting to be a way more effective speaker the past few months. The only thing I think he needs to work on now is being more effective at the 1 minute network TV blips he gets to be on sometimes. He really does way better once he has a couple minutes to warm into his things – but a lot of the TV appearances these days are more about getting in the one clever soundbite quickly than actually going into depth. I think this latter thing will come with more practice though. I’m very happy with the level of effort the GJ campaign has been putting into this election.
