GOP Convention Update: r3VOLution

Posted by Katie Grace McGowan | Aug 30, 2012 | Community/News

Tea Party Patriots litter the crowd, causing the occasional minor stir. Small groups leave the convention hall in protest chanting, “As Maine goes, so goes the nation.” Despite best efforts, their shouting is inaudible and, essentially, impotent.

Ron Paul brought the national debt to the awareness of young supporters AND he’s contributed to the dictionary. Paul’s website explains that a Ronvoy (noun) is, “a vehicle that departs from one (furthest away) city, and stops in other cities to pick up additional passengers, along the most direct route to a Ron Paul r3VOLution event.”
