An incredible event occurred on November 28 in St. Petersburg, FL.

Ron Paul Patriots took over the town. Everywhere you looked you saw signs, banners, cars, boats, planes, and most important Ron Paul Patriots. As you drove in from every direction, people saw "CNN/YouTube: Welcome to the Ron Paul Debate".

At 2pm, the first event of the day (Unity Rally/Straw Poll). This event brought in over 30 different groups. The goal was simple. Register as many people as Republicans in order to vote on January 29 for Ron Paul. We overwhelmed the Unity Straw Poll and won by getting 240 of the 322 votes cast.

We then deployed the boats and planes:
First the boats (We had two.):

From there, people got to ride the Ron Paul Bus and Ron Paul Trolley over to Vinoy Park for the Republican Straw Poll.

500 Ron Paul Patriots out numbered the 100 or so other people there. But in act of stupidity the Republican Party changed the rule to be able to vote as many times as you wanted. Some accounts are that the few Romney supporters there were voting up to 100 times.
Here are some videos:

People then jumped back on the Ron Paul Trolley and Ron Paul Bus to head to the real event: THE PALLADIUM THEATER. As you came up to the Palladium Theater, there was 3 HUGE Banners for Ron Paul with two American Flags on both ends. This building was beautiful inside and out. During the debate Ron Paul Patriots got to watch it on a huge screen.

I got to go to the ACTUAL DEBATE. I was on the floor and very close to the stage. Many other Ron Paul Patriots made it inside, too. Many seats inside the debate were empty. The Republican Party had to finally let some of us in days before the event or the event may have been 30%-40% empty. This gave us an incredible ability to influence the debate with sound. We got others to Boo and cheer with us. So when the people tried to Boo Ron Paul, we cheered which made it different then the FOX Debate. But more importantly, we got people Booing the other candidates. CNN did a story on the Boos.

After the debate, I got up from my seat and ran outside. I grabbed a large box of Ron Paul invitations to the Palladium Theater and passed them out to everyone leaving the debate. Many people looked very interested in taking them. I can only hope that a few people made it over. But for the ones that didn't, they had to go past the HUGE SIGN WAVING at the Palladium Theater as they were going to the Republican After Debate Party which was only a few blocks away. I can only imagine their stunned looks.

We had four different professionals taping at this event. But if you feel that you also have good footage, please email me. Also, one of them lost a DVD/video so if you were given it please email me. We hope to have the better footage edited down to a DVD. One of our goals for this event was to give the Official Campaign a great opportunity for footage for a TV commercial. We will have to wait and see.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS HAPPEN AND CAME TO SHOW SUPPORT!!!!!!
