"We love Ron Paul, he is the inspiration for the Festival.
We would give anything to have him speak or visit the Festival. For whatever reason he has decided against it. We did not seek his approval, or ask him to sanction this event, we just DID IT. Being the LIBERTARIAN MINDED PEOPLE we are, we did not ask for permission.
We are grassroots activists, not concert promoters, nor are we part of the (broken) GOP machinery.
Dr. Paul called us PERSONALLY a while back, thanked us, and wished our event success. But he found it necessary to hold his own event in which he had complete control of. This is understandable,
and we accept that, and have gone to great lengths to work it into our program.
