    I do hope there will be an on the ground effort. If so, I would hope that one is able to participate without having anything to do with Rand or Ron Paul.

    This must not just be just an online thing and a real effort to reach out to people who believe in privacy but may not appreciate people like GG or Snowden or Bradley Manning.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.

      July 4th, in major cities nationwide. Organizing is in progress on Reddit, and there seem to be a lot of experienced organizers involved.

      Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot you can do to avoid the Pauls when they're on your side, short of creating your own "I hate both Rand Paul and domestic spying" splinter protest.

      However, the RTF movement does seem to be fairly committed to the plan of remaining nonpartisan and focused. We can't stop people from holding Ron Paul signs (or other fringe/partisan materials), but we can overwhelm them with numbers.

        Just as long that it is clear it is not on behalf of his future campaign, I'm ok. Having grown up in the South I am use to having to work with people who are ok with others who believe discrimination is just a private matter.
