Paul: Cut Foreign Aid, Bring Home TroopsSubmitted by We the People on Tue, 10/04/2011 - 07:32
Ron Paul hadn't even said a word last night before he received two standing ovations from the crowd at the We The People town hall at Nashua Community College.
During his roughly 20 minute remarks, the audience applauded, whooped, hollered and whistled for the Texas Republican congressman a total of 18 times. The only "boo" from the audience came after he referenced the federal PATRIOT Act.
The audience of about 300 supported every one of Paul's positions, most loudly on bringing home troops from abroad, ending the drug wars and the Federal Reserve system and opposing the killing of American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki.
