Thread: Ron Paul is planning a trip to Alaska...

    Ron Paul is planning a trip to Alaska...

    So an email from the campaign said that Ron is planning a trip to Alaska. My guess is anchorage since this is where over half the states population resides. Details will be released in the near future. Anyone planning on being there(wherever there is)? I am considering making the trip from southeast.

    I know there are several staffers in the Anchorage area so that makes sense. Ron Paul's campaign is clearly planning on contesting the state.

    Maybe Palin's husband's support of Newt will help keep the vote divided up there.

    It is on Super Tuesday. The idea is that the campaign will do really well in WA, and that will help Ron Paul in the Super Tuesday states.

    I hope he can make a family trip out of it. That is those in his family that would get a kick out of a place like Alaska.

    You can't really see the Liberty and Freedom but you can taste it.





    The elevation is so high that many of the trees we have farther south grow to bush size in Alaska. In the fall the ground looks blanketed in color by the different species.

    Juneau would be his second choice. Which means he would stop in Ketchikan as well as I don't believe there are any direct flights from Seattle to Juneau.

    Great, if you go and have an opportunity please ask Ron why he has not asked the other candidates how they plan to pay for a new war with Iran and deal with the blow back. Thanks

    Looks like Alaska Airlines has some direct flights.

    You really have to watch the weather for a trip to Alaska.

    I think the way the tourist season works is that a bunch of college age people travel in to man the restaurants, cabins, and other travel accommodations. Then everything is open. Some deadline in the fall comes and everything closes and most people take off for the year. I think with the summer work over it is back to school.

    Then I've heard there is another group of locals that have waited for the snow to come. That is when things really open up for them. They welcome the snow because it opens up travel. There aren't roads to everywhere like we have here. When the snow comes it becomes their roads.

    Anyway that is what I've heard.

    If you ever get up to Anchorage, Alaska, there is a movie theater called the, Bear Tooth that is worth checking out.

    It appears to have been a regular movie theater like we had in every town across the country. As ours died out and got torn down it looks to me like the Bear Tooth Theater evolved to stay alive.

    The heart of the theater, like we all had, has changed some. Seats were removed in the back to accommodate some booths for seating. Farther down and in the middle, some of the rows seating were removed so that some of the seats had little tables in front of them.

    The way it worked when I went was that you got line to buy tickets. Then one of you could stay in the ticket line while the other took off and got in the food line. This wasn't your ordinary theater snacks but some pretty good food like pizzas of all sorts; Specials, Appetizers, Salads and Wraps. Tacos, Burritos and Vegan. Pizzas - Kids Menu, Desserts, Drinks, Beer and Wine. I'm thinking they also had the regular snacks.

    Anyway so your in the food line. You place your order and they hand you one of those plastic number deals that you take with you to your seat and place it on the table. Later when your food is ready, someone comes down, spots your number and brings it over.

    They also had a brewery attached to the operation. In fact now that I think back it was like a theater, restaurant, and a brewery that could be visited separately if you wanted.

    Not only did I have a good time, the business opportunity knowing the business model could be repeated over and over in towns across America has haunted me. It was a lively place with lots of young people employed.



    Remember the long lines at the theaters? They have them.

    He needs to address the Alaskan islands give away to Russia.

    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    I've heard tell that many Russians were raised on the idea that the deal for Alaska was a lease. I haven't really looked in to the claims.

    Hoping to be there

    I might make the trip up there from Valdez with a bunch of other supporters if I can convince the wife she needs a trip to Anchorage.

    We know it will be March 4th. We're still waiting on the official announcement to know where it is and the exact times. My best guess is that he'll go to Anchorage first so that rally will be earlier in the day, then fly up to Fairbanks for a second rally later on.
