Ron Paul tells Iowans he is a “mainstream candidate” for 2012 | Iowa Caucuses

Ron Paul tells Iowans he is a “mainstream candidate” for 2012 | Iowa Caucuses - William Petroski, May 31, 2011:

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul insisted today he’s no longer a fringe candidate and more Americans are embracing his philosophy of personal liberty and limited government... “We are mainstream if you believe in the things that I believe in,” the Texas Republican told an overflow crowd of about 125 people during a mid-day speech in a banquet room at the Rose Bowl lanes in Mason City....

"Paul maintained today that mainstream American political attitudes are changing, and more people are agreeing with his approach. Increasing numbers of independent-minded people and others who have felt disenfranchised by many American politicians are identifying with the Republican Party, he added.

"Paul spoke for about 30 minutes to a crowd that repeatedly applauded his remarks, warning the nation faces serious problems from a federal government that’s out of control. The situation could lead to steep inflation, higher unemployment and a reduced standard of living for Americans, he said .

"The larger the government, the more rules and regulations and the less prosperity the society will have, he contended."
