WSJ: Rep. Paul: ‘Freedom Is a Young Idea’.Submitted by legalizeliberty on Mon, 02/06/2012 - 20:57
ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Rep. Ron Paul made a plea Monday to Minnesota’s younger voters for support, attributing his popularity among 20-somethings to his focus on personal liberties.
“There is a good reason why young people are more open to it … Freedom is a young idea,” Mr. Paul told a sizable crowd here. “Young minds are not muddled up” by conventional wisdom and the media, he added.
It was the first of two events Mr. Paul scheduled for Monday in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, which holds its caucuses Tuesday night. Polls suggest that the state should be competitive for the four GOP candidates, and Mr. Paul’s supporters on Monday called on backers to make sure to participate.
“It all comes down to the next 24 hours … A win here in Minnesota can be a game-changer,” said Marianne Stebbins, head of Mr. Paul’s campaign here.
