Texas Congressman and Republican Presidential Candidates Dr. Ron Paul stopped in Oklahoma today and I was there. He delivered a great speech to a very large crowd. There seem to be quite a few Ron Paul supporters in the Oklahoma City area.
Some of the key things Dr. Paul spoke on (along with a few quotes) were:
- Repealing the 16th Amendment. "We have the right to keep the fruits of our labors."
- Abolishising or Auditing the Federal Reserve.
- Bringing the troops home. "Great nations who extend themselves overseas inevitably go bankrupt." "[We need]...a foreign policy that defends this country and not to police the world.."
- Ending the Drug War. It has cost us trillions of dollars and there are still drugs out there. Drug addiction should be treated as a disease like alcohol. Prescription drugs are becoming a bigger problem than the drugs on the streets.
- Repealing the Patriot Act. "If that bill has been called the ban the 4th Amendment Act, it wouldn't have passed."
