Concord Seniors: Ron Paul Is ‘Sincere VIDEO]Submitted by DeMolay on Mon, 10/03/2011 - 15:03
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, brought his presidential campaign to Concord last week, making stops all around the city. Those stops included a talk with employees at Lincoln Financial, a bike ride through East Concord, and question and answer session with residents of Havenwood-Heritage Heights, a retirement community located in the eastern part of the city.
Paul spent a little less than an hour talking to the 40 or so folks in the audience, most of them residents of the complex, about his desire to end military actions overseas, his ideas about fiscal discipline, and the need to preserve Medicare for seniors. He said the times were not like when he and many of the audience members were younger, when America went to war and then eventually ended the overseas action. Paul said military entanglements were unending and in more than 130 countries overseas.
