Hi all just got home about four hours ago,

Spent the night of Nov 10th in Philly

Well let me start out saying it was a great rally! The weather could have been a little better. It was an overcast day, cold but the heat was building up quick in the mindset of all that showed up. I meant a lot of great people and the rally was a great success. Thanks to everyone involved that had anything to do with putting this rally on. The only thing that bummed me out was I did not get to meet Ron Paul in person after the rally, There was a huge crowd around Dr. Paul. Even tho I met him at the Pittsburgh rally, the photo that I let someone take of Dr. Paul and myself came out very blurry and I wanted a good one. Oh well... :(

Special thanks to the krott5333 from the Erie meetup group for giving me a ride.
Four of us carpooled to the rally.

I also recorded the rally on my digital recorder. Mp3

After the rally AKA krott5333 (Pat) and some of us and two girls. One from NJ, JerzieJennie, we spent about 2 hours waving RP signs on South 5th street and Chestnut giving out RP slimJims to the cars going by. Yes, thank goodness for red lights..lol
And I believe some of the Philly meetup was on the sidewalk selling RP tshirts. That worked out great!

There were all kinds of people driving by some blowing there horns and some with a big "Who's Ron Paul on there face?" Just before we were ready to call it quits for the day because we were starving and the thought of eating a Philly Steak and cheese with a ice cold beer was making my stomach growl. Well out of know where this guy and his wife pull over.. It was crazy! See the link below.

The Vet's setup a great memorial for those soldiers that had lost their lives in the line of duty.
