Ron Paul speaks at the UW tonight, on the Union Terrace, at 7.

It looks to be a huge event. It will be interesting to see how the people of Madison react to the iconic libertarian.

As a conservative here in Madison, I cannot wait to see him! He has the best budget plan to address the financial issues which plague the US.

Interesting. Whizzing in to the wind comes to mind.

Are you two going or is Meade getting his present then?

I was thinking Noam Chomsky is sick?

Spring Break starts tomorrow. Not a good time to visit if you want students.

MadisonMan nails it.

Students won't be here Tuesday to vote, pretty disengaged.

Looks to be nice weather, bet it will get a crowd.

They moved if from the first location because some many people registered for the event.

Stock pavilion (original space) isn't that big ... Terrace IMO is a big PR plus.

Think of the coverage if it was someone who mattered.

Bet it would be fun, as these things go. Everything is better with a beer on the Terrace at sunset.

When he ran for president in 1988, I interviewed him when he came to speak at my U. There were only about a dozen people in the big lecture hall, and they were Libertarian Party members who had driven in from the boonies.

He was a nice man but it was kinda sad.

Beautiful night to be at the Union Terrace. Wish I could make it, I always like hearing that man speak.

Kinda chilly for me. It's only mid-50s out.

I should have known that Madison would be packed with Runulans.

Ron Paul: End the Fed.

Prototypical Madisonian: This right wing crazy wants people to starve!

Ron Paul is far more important than he had been since he was an early supporter of Reagan in 1976. He won't win anything but I suspect that Romney likes having him around. They are good friends and Rand Paul could end up on the ticket. Maybe not this year but Romney is smarter than Ford.

I am sure you will let us know. Please do.

Does he still look like the alien in My Favorite Martian?

Ron Paul draws his largest crowd yet -5,200 people in Wisconsin!

Um, excuse me? That was supposed to say about 2500.
