    Default My amazing day (Pics & Video) Dallas Luncheon and Speech in Ft. Worth Texas

    No words can some up my day yesterday. Just speechless.

    Here are pics and videos. I tweeted allllllll day yesterday pics for my followers and I posted a live stream feed for everyone to view. I think we had about 200 viewers at one point.
    You can see all my tweets, videos and pics on my twitter feed.

    Ok to start the day I droped off the kids at my mothers house and my wife and I took off to Dallas. We arrived about an hour early. I was thinking that there would be people lined up already. Nope.... people scatterd in the lobby. I asked where Ron Paul was going to be and the helper at the hotel said room F. The wife and I headed down to room F and no joke we were 1st in line. About 2-3 mins later people started getting in line. About 20 mins of standing there and chit chatting with a bunch of Ron Paul supporters they started to sign people up for food and check in. We had three choices for food chicken, beef or vegi plate. NY Strip was the beef so I went that route. Somehow or another after checking in 2 gentlemen ended up infront of my wife and I but o well it's all good!

    Here are a few pics to update where we are at.


    My wife ready to go lookin good!







    Us in the lobby right before the lunchen




    Lunchen room getting ready.



    Line getting long behind us. About 100-120 people came.



    Ok so at this point IM just waiting for them to open back up the lunchen doors to look in side b/c Paul is finishing up a news interview , which you will see video of at the bottom of this post. Ok so they open the doors......My hero stand nearly 20 feet away from me. This is my 1st time seeing him in person so pretty cool deal to me.

    Ok so pictures with Ron Paul were 1st and then lunch.

    Ok let me stop and tell you a short story and probley the best part of the day. My wife and I planeed to get married on April 21st of 2012 back in 2011. So it was a set date. Anywho we have became delegates both of us know how huge that is for this race. We then got word that the County Conventions were on the same day APRIL 21st as the wedding WTF!!! What to do? Well we talked and took no longer then 10 mins to figure we needed to MOVE the wedding date forward one day so we can attend the County Conventions. Somehow or another Carol Paul contacted me threw our 2012 Ron Paul Tarrant County Facebook page and said to me how cool that was of us to do that. Wow. Foreshadow... ;0) Ok so...

    When the wife and I were waiting in line to get our pictures taken with Dr Paul (3rd in line), I did not notice it at first but Carol Paul had slipped behind me to welcome people on the other side. I seen her and said HEY Carol , so good to see you and then I asked do you remeber me and my wife were the ones that pushed forward our wedding date? It was my turn so I had to go take a pic with Ron Paul so I left with no answer.

    The wife and proceeded twards Ron Paul , I shook his hand and so did the wife. As we were getting a picture taken I just thanked him for all that he has done and said let's have a great lunch. Right after the picture was taken Carol walked right back over to me and say " Oh your my facebook friends the couple that pushed back the wedding date" I was like Yeah!!! . We chatted for a hot seconded and she went on to welcome some more people. She is the sweetest person I have ever met! She made it very personal, great people!

    We walked over to claim a great seat , front row right next to the Ron Paul table. The wife and I got asked to do a interview with the Ch. 11 news so we did. He asked Why are we donating to Paul if he has no chance of winning and I told him b/c even if he does not win for some weird reason this go around it's about a idea that's time has come. Not so much about a person even though Ron Paul is a great man. Every penny I donate is well worth it and I won't stop. He asked what I like about his views? I said his views should be commen since to any American expecialy the older generations. Funny thing is later on the news he did not show me just a short clip of my wife and then a short clip of us taken a picture with Ron Paul , which is posted at the bottom of this post.

    Okay so after the interview we sat down at our table.

    Let me catch you up on pics b/c the wife and I got one with Carol and some other pics before they closed the lunchen doors.


    Wife and I with Carol





    Ok so here is the BEST PART hands down speechless.... can't explain.
    The doors shut, everyone is pretty much seated and Carol goes up to Ron and gets him to follow her over ...... to my table.
    She walked up and said Ron I want to introduce you to my friends , and she went on to explain what we did to become delegates and the dedication we have put forward. He loved it and I love it, wife loved it, Smile on my face a mile wide. He shook my hand said thank you and told us to make sure we get married it's important , I replied with Freedom and Liberty are more important he smiled and walked on to his table.

    My buddy Tony took a pic of when Ron and Carol came over to us. Tony I thank you a bunch for the pic, It's going on the wall!!!



    we start lunch , here are some pics.


    Everyone eating



    We had salad, main course and then desert.

    My steak. mmmmm good!






    My wife had chicken but she was feeling under the weather for some reason right before the meal, so she did not have but one bite. She is a trooper so she hung in there.

    Paul deleiverd a great 30 minute very personal speech. Then it was on to sign books and that was it.



    Got both books signed!!! AMAZING!







    Ok so the wife and I left and were THRILLED and it was worth every penny of course it was all to the campign so I would have done it anyways just cause!

    As we left wife told me to pull over b/c she had to throw up LOL, so yeah she did her thing and we moved on. She is a trooper!

    Went to get the kids and then go to the speech/rally in Ft Worth.

    Here is a link to Ft Worth pics. A small write up was down on my pics and she gave me credit so I will give her credit. Go check it out.

    You and your wife are a lovely couple. Glad you had a great day.

    But that television coverage was sickening. The "reporter" just had to insert the killing blow "He won't win" comment. And here's why he did it: It's his apology, and the station's apology, for covering a candidate they don't "think" will win. Because clearly, in America, only the winning candidate deserves coverage. And only the winning candidate deserves your vote.

    This goes along with my theory about most Americans. If they could somehow know who won the election before voting, 90 percent of them would make sure they voted for the winner because they simply can't stand to be on the losing side of anything. I predict that these people will be committing mass suicide if they ever decide that America is not Number 1 any longer.
