I just got back from the Phoenix Ron Paul rally. Roughly 700 people there (there were 600 seats and it was standing room only) Dr. Paul spoke for about 45 minutes. Biggest standing ovation of the day was when he said we have to get rid of the Federal Reserve. Nice quip about how some folks think the gold standard is nuts, "well paper isn't working so well either is it?"
Best line of the night: when you make a program that is just big enough to prevent people from falling through the cracks, the cracks get bigger and trap more people.
