Sioux City Journal - Ron Paul's Message Resonates with Sioux City CrowdSubmitted by rp311 on Tue, 09/20/2011 - 21:18
SIOUX CITY -- Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul drew applause Tuesday when he told an audience of about 200 that he supports a return to a monetary system based on the gold standard.
Even more of those who gathered for the Texas congressman's town-hall-style campaign stop here clapped and shouted in agreement when Paul spoke in support of a much less interventionist foreign policy for the United States. That talk resulted in several applause lines for Paul, who finished second in the Iowa Republican Party straw poll in August.
"You can't spread goodness with bombs and guns and war," Paul said in response to a question about manifest destiny.
