Paul: SC Primary Could Be A "Significant" Event

Ron Paul says Saturday's South Carolina primary could be a "significant event" that will help propel his insurgent campaign forward.

The Texas congressman addressed the Southern Republican Leadership Conference on Friday. He warned voters not to back candidates who support the status quo and who won't make deep cuts to federal spending.

Paul was leaving Charleston to embark on a multi-city tour of the state. He was set to visit Myrtle Beach, Florence, Aiken, Greenville and finish the day with a rally in Columbia, the state capital.

Paul placed second in New Hampshire behind rival Mitt Romney. He hasn't campaigned as intensely in South Carolina but his campaign has blitzed the airwaves with ads.

    BOTH partys can only agree to increase the deficit. He knows we need to make big cuts to defense. We're not hardly out of Iraq, and folks are now talking about starting a war with Iran! We have bases(try finding out how many!?) all over the world! Europe, Japan? We can't pay our bills but have bases everywhere? We have NOT been in a war since WWII that truly involved our national security! Same rationale, fight them over there or we'll fight them here e.g. Vietnam, Iraq. We have to stop sticking our noses and our lives and money in other countries/business! He sees the failed War on Drugs for what it is, a rathole! No other politician has kept true to his beliefs. The Fed has 3 trillion on his books and force folks into risky assests for a return! and probably manipulates markets too! Something has to give, but nobody(BOTH partys) but him have offered meaningful cuts to government. Once things hit the fan, it ain't going to be pretty! We can't have our cake and eat it too! Cut: defense, DEA, etc.
