Veterans for Ron Paul 2012 will show their support in a march to the White House this Presidents Day. (RON PAUL IS THE CHOICE OF THE TROOPS! Facebook event page) Presidents’ Day is typically quiet in D.C., as many observe the federal holiday.
But this afternoon, a group of Ron Paul supporters is planning to liven it up with a demonstration to underscore their endorsement of the Texas Republican.
Veterans for Ron Paul 2012 will march from the Washington Monument to the White House in an effort to show their support for the presidential candidate, a veteran congressman from Texas.
The Presidents’ Day march is meant to send the message that Ron Paul is the choice of the nation’s armed forces, said group founders Nathan Cox and Adam Kokesh on the Facebook event page.
Veterans and active troops alike will gather at the Washington monument at noon, where selected speakers will articulate their own reasons for supporting Paul. After two hours, the group will march to the nearby White House and salute a folded American flag for as many seconds as the number of solders who have died during President Obama’s term.
Then, they will silently march back to the Washington Monument.
When planning the event, the founders imagined a “platoon-sized” group, or about 50 troops. Now, more than 2,000 individuals have responded with RSVPs to the Facebook event.
The founders said the sheer size of the group will send a powerful message.
“It seems now, that we will at least have hundreds marching with us,” the Facebook page reads. “Can you imagine if we had 1,000 in formation? How many will join us in demanding that Ron Paul be recognized as the choice of the troops?”
The group has also planned an after party and concert featuring performances from Aimee Allen, Michale Graves of the Misfits, Jordan Page, Golden State and Rebel INC.

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!
Looks like a good couple hundred people at the Monument. Just starting to talk. Hard to hear
