In the wake of his call for supporters to march
on the capital, presidential candidate Ron Paul has
touted some potential dates for the event.
The Congressman revealed to the Alex Jones show
two possible windows in the calender that he has in mind:
"It's going to be soon... right now in my mind
I am thinking memorial day weekend or 4th of July weekend, depending
on the space and the time and on whether people think we need
until the extra six weeks to wait until the 4th of July. But it
would be pretty neat if we could do something on the 4th of July,
that really might be a great time to do it." Dr. Paul stated.
Paul also provided more details on how he sees the
event panning out:
"Its more complex and more difficult to do
marches throughout the city, I 'm thinking of just having a grand
rally. That would be a little easier to manage." he commented.
The Congressman stressed that a show of strength
is needed given that the mainstream media has all but concluded
that the race for the GOP nomination is over.
"If we have a march on Washington and a couple
of thousand show up, it's pretty embarrassing, so it is pretty
risky. But if we have a grand showing, it just means the mainstream
media will have a much more difficult time ignoring us, and this
would encourage everyone to keep the momentum going." Paul

Dr. Paul also reminded supporters that the achievements
of the last year alone justify the continuation of the campaign:
"It's never going to be the same again, the
country will never be the same, the Republican Party won't be
the same, because of what has been started here. So this is to
me very encouraging."
"With Romney out a lot of people thought 'the
whole thing is over' but I haven't accepted that idea, we have
to wait and see, things can change and there's been so many bad
stories out about McCain and what he really believes in that already
the people are backing away from him." the Congressman commented.
Paul also further explained why he has ruled out
a third party run, stating
"I don't think it is viable and I think there
is so much bias against us to do that, so when you are still in
Republican primaries and running as a Republican Congressman,
to start talking about being something else, it just doesn't seem
very smart. The truth is personally I cannot see how that can
happen, it just doesn't seem practical for me."
