    By the way - Lied Center - couldn't they come up with a better name?
    Pronounced: LEED

    The center, which opened in September 1993, was built largely with $10 million from the Lied Foundation Trust and is dedicated to Ernst M. and Ida K. Lied, parents of Ernst F. Lied (d. 1980). The younger Lied attended KU 1923-25; he owned a car dealership in Omaha and was a real-estate investor in Las Vegas.

    Henningson, Durham & Richardson of Omaha were the architects for the $14.6 million center, which has a 2,020-seat auditorium for musical, dance and theatrical performances, lectures and symposia; rehearsal and dance studios; ticket office; and administrative and educational offices. A $300,000 project completed in March 2011 added the Kemper Foyer of 1,800 square feet, expanding the lobby and reception and meeting spaces. The William T. Kemper Foundation financed the addition.

    The Bales Organ Recital Hall, dedicated in October 1996, adjoins the center on the northwest and shares a lobby. The $1.5 million hall was built with gifts from Dane Bales, 1941 business alumni, and Polly Roth Bales, 1942 music graduate, and from the Hansen Foundation of Logan, Kan. It was specially designed by Horst Terrell & Karst Architects of Topeka for its 35-foot organ, a Hellmuth Wolff, opus 40, three-manual instrument built by Wolff & Associés Ltée. of Laval, Quebec. It has a 72-foot ceiling and walls 2 feet thick; the stained-glass windows were designed by Peter G. Thompson, dean of fine arts. The hall seats 200.

    We will vote.. The only question is whether our votes will be counted.

    Yeah, just spend 5 or 10 minutes on reading a list of polling places. And spend to time on voter registration deadlines, the forms of identification you need for same day registration. Who can vote, etc etc.

    Hey guys, we don't live in the 19th century. Just because 2000 people go to an event, it doesn't mean they are all from the county. Ask yourself how far you'd be willing to drive to see Ron Paul speak.

    My friend from Schewerswan (forgot how to spell) Province, Canada drove 8+ hours to see Ron in North Dakota.... very hardcore supporter, but it doesn't help us win votes and takes up a few spot at the rally in ND.

    Oh please, 95% of the people in that audience live in Kansas.

    Lol, you excuse makers (re: "vote fraud!" , "rallies are full of out of state peeps!" , etc.) & cheerleaders (re: "no criticism allowed! We can still win this doing the same shit we've been doin!") seriously aren't helping.

    Here's a thought, the campaign's GOTV efforts = FAIL and Ron's 'messaging' strategy = needs to change.

    This.

    He couldn't even get 4000 people to vote for him.

    Something has to change, including the ridiculous excuses from the bots.

    If Ron has taught me anything it's not to be a sheep, unfortunately this forum is full of people that are choosing to be sheep for Ron.

    It's time to focus on taking back the GOP from the NeoCons, stop making up excuses, and start looking at the bigger picture (THIS CAUSE IS GROWING BY AN INSANE AMOUNT, IT WILL CONTINUE TO GROW! WE HAVE TO LEAD IT SOMEWHERE!).

    I'm not a Paul hater or a liberty hater for thinking this, I just don't think the world will end in 4 years like everyone else seems to. We need to attack the GOP and take it back, this is the first step.

    Once we have the GOP winning the POTUS will be considerably easier...

    Will some of you please check out the NV threads where we came in third and the Iowa thread where we came in third, and remember that enthusiasm for the LONG HAUL counts in caucus states.....
    "Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesn't want to hear.” -Ron Paul

    Maybe its the same people who keep showing up over and over?

    Here's the complete speech video. Excellent content and he varied it some which is good, but maybe he was tired so he stumbled a little bit more than usual on the delivery,
