UCLA students hang in trees for Ron Paul

LOS ANGELES, April 7, 2012 — On April 4 Ron Paul had UCLA students hanging out of trees. Not enough room to see? Climb a tree! Ron Paul! Ron Paul!

“Ron Paul!” they chanted on the UCLA campus, as they strained to get a look at the GOP presidential candidate. People hung out in the trees to be liberated from the Obama Plan. “Dr. Paul is worth hanging out in the trees to see,” said one student.

People came from all over southern California to the UCLA event, to hear Paul preach his message of liberty. Paul has collected 51 delegates on his trek to Tampa, and his supporters believe that when the states officially assign the delegates, he’ll get many more. He plans to campaign throughout California and was scheduled to visit three California campuses this week.

Interest in his UCLA appearance grew so large that organizers had to move the event to Straus Stadium (Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA). The stadium’s capacity is 7000, and Paul filled it. Tweeters were online twittering for supporters @RonPaul to come hear him speak, and they went crazy on the twitter blogs sites. People were encouraged to register as a Republican so that candidate Ron Paul could take some California delegates.

Wednesday night’s event will cost Paul’s UCLA youth chapter about $5,000, according to Edward King, National Youth Director for the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign.

Paul’s vision is clear to his followers: Paul’s “Plan to Restore America,” his blueprint for economic development, includes trimming $1 trillion from the federal budget during his first year in office, with the goal of balancing the budget within three years. He plans to flesh out his “Plan” further, with specific cuts to federal spending in order to trim the national debt and reverse the growth of government.

“Dr. Paul’s message of individual liberty, prosperity, and peace resonates with California students and voters,” said King. “He will continue to inspire this new generation of voters and bring them into the political process, which is vital to defeating President Obama and revitalizing the Republican Party. No other GOP candidate offers that possibility.”

Ron Paul spoke to Cal State University-Chico on Tuesday to an estimated 6,200 people, and at UC-Berkely to 8,500 on Thursday. Now the trick will be to translate that enthusiasm into registered voters. The more registered voters, the greater chance that California may go “Red” in the November presidential election.
