Skip to comments.Ron Paul to speak in Iowa next week

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, will campaign for Republican legislative candidates and speak at the University of Iowa Friday, Oct. 29, at 7:45 p.m. The group organizing Pauls speech, the universitys Young Americans for Liberty and Campaign for Liberty, are billing the event as fueling speculation that he may challenge other Republican presidential hopefuls in Iowas 2012 primary.
Dr. Pauls 2008 presidential campaign threw him into the national spotlight as a different kind of Republican, said Ani DeGroot, president of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter. He has called for an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a full audit of the Federal Reserve, and a return to limited, constitutional government. Its a message that really resonates with college students.
Paul was last in Iowa back in June, when he addressed a Des Moines crowd the night before the Republican Party of Iowa convention. Before that, he headlined an event for the conservative group Campaign for Liberty in Des Moines in May.
Paul will also headline a fundraiser for Chad Steenhoek, Republican candidate for Iowa House District 46, and Tim Gartin, Republican candidate for Iowa Senate District 23.

He goes from respected Politician to Crazy Uncle right before your eyes. It is something to behold.
I wish he wouldn’t do that. That’s the one thing I disagree with him on. I love America and Israel and I know we have to win the war on terror but I love Dr. Paul’s policies of ending the FED and going back to gold and silver money.
People actually walked out of the room when he went off the deep end. He had them applauding when he was discussing the Federal Reserve problem, then he drove off the cliff.
Needless to say, my opinion of him changed at that very moment. I had hope, but it didn't quite work out. LOL
Ron Paul is, I think, much like Pat Buchanan. He may have been conservative at one point, but got too full of his own fame, and became a witting or unwitting tool of the Left.
Ron Paul is right on the money!Leave other countries alone and protect Americans 1st.
You signed up to promote him, quit playing coy.
On your other thread on his itinerary that you posted five minutes after this one, you said the same thing, "If I was an IU student I'd see him."
Ron Paul ping, my little hawkeye.
Me too, I wanna ride in the blimp and meet Cindy Sheehan. Should I wear my keffiyeh?
Dr. Paul is a great man on everything but foreign policy and war. Who else is for ending the FED and bringing back the free market?
Very descriptive. His supporters are quite similar in personality type, at least the ones I've met. Talking perfect sense one minute then full-blown conspiracy theorist the next. During the 2008 early campaign a woman we hadn't seen before showed up at church. Nothing unexpected. it's Hawaii, we get a lot of mainland visitors.
Anyway, she was perfectly normal until the pastoral prayer when the pastor went through the group asking if there were special requests. At that point she stood up and made a very impassioned speech that the Lord would help Ron Paul to win the election. Our church tends to stay away from political things, primarily because there are a lot of staunch old Japanese (Democrat) and a lot of military and retired military (conservative).
The pastor ultimately found a spot where she took a sufficiently long breath to cut her off at the pass, so to speak, thanked her, and high-tailed it to someone about to save the moment on the other side of the church. And no, he didn't throw that into his pastoral prayer other than a simple "thy will be done."
What is the point, do you think that he is going to be President someday?
He's part of the "blame America" crowd and anyone who cozies up to Code Pink is not a friend of America.
It was Space Aliens. Why?
Well, since Dr. Paul, Alex Jones and his other pals cannot pin down a single fact associating the US Government with committing 911, just blame it on Space Aliens.
Space Aliens possess technology that defies technology used by us Earthlings. So, using this logic, one does not have to "Prove" that the US Government committed it. We can say that Karl Rove and Boosh had close contact with the aliens.
This is a Win-Win for America haters/blamers. You can't actually prove that Booosh committed 911 because of Space Alien technology.
Pretty clever eh?
