"I always knew
that if you were going to have a revolution you needed two things. young
people, and music." - Ron Paul
We're on our way
In 2007, We the
R3VOLUTION, made history with a BLIMP. In 2011, We’ll make history again with a
ROCK THE R3VOLUTION TOUR!
It started as an
idea floated on the Daily Paul.com.
It quickly sparked
interest all over the country, so much that it moved from an idea to organizing
in less than 48 hours.
We now have a
growing organization behind it and a website
We believe that
this is something that has the potential to become Very Huge.
Imagine great music
from artists such as Per Capita, Jordan Page, Jandisco Sound System, Rise,
Consise, and Krookid interspersed with liberty messages from featured speakers
and voter registration tables and an added ability to identify Ron Paul
supporters who we can later encourage to go to the polls for Ron Paul. Imagine
a great opportunity for your local Ron Paul meetup and facebook groups to hand
out literature and educate your neighbors, who will come out for music but
haven’t been paying attention to politics. All of this interspersed with more
great music on tour all fall and winter! I think we'll make this bigger than
the Blimp! From Coast to Coast, and the weather won't slow us down!
We’re planning on
keeping the great people at Rock The Vote very busy this election season!
We already have the
donated vans. We already have musicians willing to do anything it takes to make
this happen, and word of a big name act that is willing to do at least one show
along the tour which we’ll announce the name of later. I’d be surprised if more
don’t come forward before we get this show on the road.
Before we get this
show on the road though we need four things to happen:
1. We need regional
coordinators to assist our team with booking venues and promoting the event
2. We need local
musicians to come forward who can perform when the tour is in their town.
Musicians with their own networks of fans is one of the keys to making this a
success. We already have had artists get in touch with us who will be contributing
to the tour this way, thank you! We just need to find more of you!
3. We have hopes
this becomes self sustaining and even generates money on it's own to help fund
other projects in support of Ron Paul, but to get this started we’re going to
need donations. We’re going to be able to do things for less than others would
pay, we’ve already had a venue manager come forward and give us a rock bottom
deal, and again, I’d be surprised if we don’t have more patriots coming forward
to help like that. We’re even saving money thanks to John Dennis’s Freedom and
Prosperity PAC letting us take donations securely through the PAC rather than
relying on Chipin , which has steep fees. We’re more than just a little
thankful for all of this help, but there are still going to be expenses that we
can’t cover on our own just yet. Your generous donation to the ROCK THE
R3VOJUTION TOUR will guarantee we get this show on the road!
4. A bus, yes the
tour is already outgrowing the vans, and we need a bus or an rv! One that we
can throw up some great r3volution graphics up on!
Thank you, and I’ll
see you at the show!
