RON PAUL U.S.A. | April 12, 2012
and is being organized by the University of Texas - San Antonio chapter of the Youth For Ron Paul organization.
Dr. Paul's message resonates loud and clear in this part of the country, where liberty and independence can be traced back to the very foundation of this community. One of the most famous symbols of independence, the Gonzales, or "Come And Take It" flag, has its roots in this area. In 1835, citizens held their ground when the Mexican Army mounted an offensive to take back a cannon which had previously been given to the people to help them fend off Indians. The skirmish would become known as "The Battle of Gonzales" and was the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico. Stephan F. Austin joined the group in Gonzales, and on October 12th, the march on San Antonio began! Read more about Famous Freedom Flags!
Ron Paul supporters are urged to arrive at least one hour early, if not more, to ensure they are able to get a seat. Be sure to bring your early seating voucher, and don't forget to take tons of pictures and share your experience on Twitter! Ron Paul 2012!
