Ron Paul compares campaign to American Revolution at rain-soaked rally


Stuff like this makes me nervous, but maybe it's the GOP who should be getting nervous over Paul. See this for example, "Ron Paul backers sweep into GOP party roles in Iowa". He's got something the crazies like.

Philadelphia (CNN) – Ahead of Tuesday's Pennsylvania primary, presidential hopeful Ron Paul painted his long-shot campaign as a new American revolution at a rain-soaked event outside Independence Hall.

“In our early history, we had a major undertaking overthrowing an empire,” Paul said. “And in some ways that is what we are doing now.”

Paul’s supporters call his campaign the “Ron Paul Revolution,” and they turned out in a steady, hard rain outside the hall where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were debated and adopted.

They stood with umbrellas drawn and ponchos on, even as the sound of rain smacking on the tents in the park made it difficult for people to hear the candidate.
