Opening Statement. I want to thank the Amherst Republican Party for hosting this event and inviting me to participate and present Ron Paul’s views on the issues. I am proud to support Dr. Paul who is the only candidate to visit this area during the campaign. In August, he took time off from a family reunion to speak to 700 people who came to see him on just three days notice.
Ron polls particularly well among young people, independents, working class people and people in the Northeast. He is strong where Obama is strong. Obama’s people won’t say so but they are terrified of Ron Paul.
