Why Does Ron Paul Continue To Pack Houses?
He touched on campaign themes underscoring the need to shrink federal government.
The fire marshal estimated about 1,780 people attended. Scores of students lined up outside were turned away because the venue was full.
Supporters chanted “President Paul” before the congressman spoke.
Combined inside and outside, Ron Paul spoke to about 2,000 people in Maryland. But why?
Why do so many keep coming to hear Dr. Paul speak at every stop? Why are they so enthusiastic about him? Why do they keep fighting to elect him president?
This is what the political and media establishment will never understand. The Ron Paul campaign is a mission to change this country by shrinking government, cutting spending and restoring liberty–not merely saying these things during a Republican primary, but actually doing them.
Paul supporters know that the status quo is unsustainable and genuinely fear for the future of their country. They realize that even though President Obama has exacerbated our problems, our problems did not begin with Obama. Paul supporters also realize the other Republican candidates not only will do nothing to substantively change course in Washington DC–most of them are just as responsible as the Democrats for the current, sad state of affairs. Obama vs. Obama-lite is no choice. Especially when it’s even arguable if the Republican is Obama-lite.
The political class can’t comprehend anything beyond largely meaningless horse races, but Paul supporters comprehend truths that will continue to have serious ramifications for America in 2012 and beyond.
Americans flock to Ron Paul not because he gives them a certain kind of hope–but because his message is our only hope.
