Ron Paul: Why The Young Flock To An Old Idealist


Ron Paul

Go to any Ron Paul event and it strikes you immediately: What’s up with all the young people?

The 75-year-old Texas congressman packs halls on college campuses. His campaign volunteers often look too young to shave. And even at a recent New York City book signing, it’s surprising how many teenagers and 20-somethings are lined up for an autograph, clutching Paul’s new book, Liberty Defined.

Sixteen-year-old Rob Gray says the age of the crowd doesn’t seem odd to him.

It’s “the old canard of the young being more open-minded than the old,” he says.

Paul, the world’s most unlikely teen idol, is running again for president.
