Ron Paul Pushes For Michigan Support

MOUNT PLEASANT -- Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has swung into Michigan looking for some campaign momentum.
The Texas congressman trails Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in polls ahead of Michigan presidential primary on Tuesday. Paul spoke to more than 1,000 energetic supporters on Saturday at Central Michigan University and many more couldn't get into the packed auditorium.
Paul has other Michigan stops planned for Sunday and Monday.
Some of Paul's views on limited government and low taxes fit in with the Republican mainstream, but he breaks with much of his party when he criticizes American intervention abroad and puts a premium on individual rights as the nation works to root out domestic terror.
He echoed many of his major themes during Saturday's campaign appearance.

    Ron Paul is the answer to ALL this country's problems! Taxes, the economy, and personal liberty would all be renewed under his administration. His foreign policy is always critisized, but those who critisize look at his ideas within a static frame of mind and his policies need to be considered in a dynamic sense. Ron Paul and his message is catching on to more and more freedom-loving Americans...hopefully it will soon/someday be President Paul.
