There was one speech last night well attended by liberty lovers from across the eastern seaboard. No, it wasn't broadcast on every network, wasn't live-blogged by everyone with Wordpress access, and it didn't need a team of pundits or focus groups to twist, mince and make sense of the claims and promises made over the duration of the delivery.
Congressman Ron Paul spoke at Loyola University as part of the “Moral Foundations of Capitalism” Lecture Series sponsored by the BB&T Foundation. Congressman Paul was invited to speak by Economics Professor Thomas DiLorenzo.
Sean O'Donnell, Baltimore Republican Examiner reporter had the following to say about Dr. Paul's visit to Loyola:
On the historic campus in McGuire Hall, Paul presented his case for ending the Federal Reserve Bank’s reign over finance. “We should get rid of the Fed,” Paul demanded.
Speaking for about an hour, Paul also discussed the proper role of government, foreign policy, and civil liberties. The main conference room that Paul spoke in was full so a video feed was broadcast to an overflow room allowing more students and fans to hear and see Paul’s message.
