About 2,500 people, mostly students, gathered on the Michigan State University campus Monday to hear presidential candidate Ron Paul.
Paul told his supporters that the U.S. no longer has the republican form of government that was set up by the founding fathers. He says the federal income tax is unconstitutional.
“In spite of the people waking up and wanting something different, we still have a job for ourselves,” says Paul. “Washington isn’t hearing us, and they have not changed, but we will make a difference. We will make sure they hear this message.”
The Texas congressman is not considered a threat to Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum in the primary. However, he has drawn large, enthusiastic crowds at several appearances in Michigan.
