The interest in doing a Great American Walk for Freedom has swelled significantly in the first week of exploring the idea. It looks like there will be some kind of Walk for Freedom to Minneapolis ending at Ron Paulís big rally there on September 1st or 2nd. If all goes according to plan and we pull our Walk off properly, Ron Paul will join us for the final few miles. My vision: Ron Paul leading 25,000 walkers into the city for a Grand Finale rally (hey, think big..why not?).

Right now we are looking at two routes: from Green Bay to Minneapolis and from Ames, Iowa to Minneapolis.

We would like to start each route with 500 people (78 minimum, the number that Gandhi had when he started the Salt March, 500 is what MLK walked with to Montgomery; we already have 40 pledged to walk the distance!).

We are thinking in terms of each walker as an Ambassador of Freedom. We would like to focus not just on making a grand display but on doing outreach as we go...stopping to talk with people, give out books and literature and hosting Town Hall Meetings in each town we pass through to talk with folks, answer questions and also meet with media.

Itís a grand vision but logistically will be a big challenge. We will need a big supply/logistics team to manage food, sleeping/rest, facilities ect...

Other teams needed:

--Registration/Deployment of walkers
--Community Relations
--Legal Team
--Internet team (web site, blogging, daily YouTubes)

No doubt there is more. This will be a huge project and will require the true support of our Ron Paul/Freedom community. That will include financially. It will take money to make this happen.

I am personally visioning something that is a watershed event, much as the Gandhi and MLK walks were at their respective times and places. I hope you will share that vision, or at least vision something compatible with it. Lots of people are starting to take this general idea and are working off of it in various ways, and thatís great. Letís see a great big outburst of that Ron Paul Revolution creativity, cooperation and good will.

If you are planning on walking, please make a YouTube asap telling people why you will be walking for freedom, a little bit about yourself and your thoughts about the Walk. Be sure to send us the like asap!
