Dan Stewart, a distribution specialist, was there and simply said he was "here to see Ron Paul." "It's neat to see the crowd grow and grow," he added. Dan wasn't into chanting when the "Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul" mantra ebbed and flowed; rather, he seemed to be curious about the event and interested in what type of people came to a Ron Paul speech. Stewart asked if this reporter had read any of Ron Paul's books and added that if I needed one or two, I could borrow his.
|Diminutive Ron Paul|
When Ron Paul entered "stage left," this reporter was a bit surprised. On television Congressman Paul doesn't come off as a WWE wrestler, but his diminutive 120 pound frame is more noticeable in person. However, it is noteworthy that Paul's suit was a good fitting one as opposed to some he wears that appear a bit over sized.
Regardless of suit size, it is readily apparent that the crowd sees Paul only as a giant of their cause and thinks his message of liberty, self-direction and government constraint is "bigger than the city lights down at Times Square." said one on-looker. Pretty sure that is a quote from a 1990's Notorious B.I.G. song. However, the gentleman did not sing it.
|Fake Rand Paul Son|
Paul's speech lasted about 40 minutes and he did not allow the press much time once finished. He had to "get on a plane to Springfield in about a half hour," chimed a staffer. One fellow that remained close to Paul throughout the event looked suspiciously like Ron Paul's son Rand; however, he was much taller than the Pauls, so it's just conjecture.

Cynthia Davis, Constitution Party candidate for Missouri Lieutenant Governor, was at the Lindenwood Ron Paul event. Indeed, she was there from the very beginning, starting with caucus training at 1 p.m. Central.
