The Paul People Have Arrived

Laura Ingraham is trying her best to outshout the chants of the Ron Paul faithful. It ain't going well. They've been shouting "Ron Paul" while the Ed in 08 people tried to play their video. I doubt anyone hear could really hear much of anything.

Paul's campaign apparently didn't provide of a video of its own to play, so Paul has now taken the stage.

Here are some of his words:

"Our campaign is all about freedom, prosperity and peace."

We have a terrible threat of terrorism and we are not handling it well.

"9/11 could have been prevented if we had a lot more respect for the 2nd Amendment."

"The founders would be ashamed of us for what we're putting up with."

He wants to repeal the IRS and get rid of the 16th Amendment.

16th Amendment
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

"You pay to rebuild bridges in Iraq, while ours is falling down here."

Paul has definitely tapped into something. His supporters seem to be the most vocal. And judging by the size of his crowd inside Hilton, he does have a movement going in Iowa. Will he surprise some people with his final vote totals tonight or has this mostly been just a show of out-of-towners?
