About 100supporters showed up at a news station in San Diego Wednesday night to show their support for their pick for the 2012 presidential election.
When I asked an anonymous gentleman in a phone interview why he participated, he said, “Because the media ignores Ron Paul, so we all came to the largest media outlet in San Diego to change that."
“Back in 2008 my eyes were opened to the corruption of our government and monetary system, AKA the Federal Reserve," the supporter said. “I started doing research on why in God’s name is the government being bailed out when Americans are getting kicked out of their homes when they get behind on their payments--that’s when I found Ron Paul and have been supporting him ever since.”
Another of the Ron Paul fans brought a projector and showed the live debates on the side of San Diego’s NBC building.
The media may ignore Ron Paul, but in San Diego they didn’t ignore his supporters: on Wednesday evening, reporters with their crew came out to interview some in the crowd.
Ron Paul supporters held up signs saying thing like "Ron Paul, President 2012" and "reLoveution." One man held the Constitution in his right hand and his Ron Paul President 2012 sign in his left.
On Southern California street corners while cars sped by, the group held their signs chanting, “Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul for President.”
“I don’t want or need the president to save the day, it needs to start with me working on my own personal economy. If I want a president to give me my own liberties, then I shouldn’t be sitting on my butt waiting for him to do something,” said my phone interviewee.
He went on to say, “Most people don’t want freedom because it takes responsibility. They have to take responsibility for their health, finances and every area of their life. That’s what Ron Paul is all about…empowering people to do their part.”
