The Pittsburgh rally was a huge success on Friday evening! I suspect there were at least 1,500 people there and that does not include the number of people who were in the hallways and standing on the sides.
Ron Paul gave an excellent speech that ran for over an hour! I truly feel this man is being empowered by a Being much higher than us. He is a 71 year old man, traveling from one end of the country to another, attending to his duties in Congress, doing multiple interviews a day, being a good husband, father and grandfather, in all the while as he makes his march for the White House. I am in my 20's and cannot possibly imagine doing this! I look up to him because of the amount of motivation and willpower he has to keep doing this each day. He knows that his message is what can change this country around and bring all of us together.
This was the first time I have ever heard Ron Paul speak and it was like no other political rally I have been to before. There wasn't that fluffy rehearsed nonsense or the weird zombie-like supporters that other candidates have. He spoke, not like the other candidates who have their fake sense of strength in their voice, but with a sense of honesty and courage. Anyone in the audience that was not a Ron Paul supporter certainly left the rally feeling a large amount of pride in our Constitution, our country, and trust in Ron Paul.
The best part of the whole event last night was when my husband and I turned down our street to find a new Ron Paul sign in one of our neighbor's yards. It was so unbelievable that we both shrieked with joy when we saw it! This just goes to show that there are supporters of Ron Paul all over the place.
If we all put a sign in our front yard, we could show America our real numbers. I encourage everyone to buy a Ron Paul sign and proudly place it in your front yard for ALL to see! We have been getting honks and I can only contribute them to our nice new Ron Paul sign. There are supporters out there! As we saw in Cranberry Township yesterday, more than just a few internet spammers and crazed wackos!
