While swarms of voters were hitting the polls a thousand miles away, some beautiful political events were taking place on this very campus.
First, outside of McKeldin Library, two students proudly stood behind a table with a banner hanging that read, “Ron Paul 2012.” Selling pins and tee-shirts, they were trying to get passerby to sign up for their mailing list. I went in for a chat.
According to these supporters, Paul has had the same political views since the 1970s, which they probably view as a good thing. I’m not so sure.
Nonetheless, I signed their petition to bring Paul to campus. No matter what you think about Paul, it’s hard to argue that it wouldn’t be a worthwhile event.
Onto Stamp Student Union, where representatives from the LaRouche Political Action Committee held signs about impeaching President Barack Obama..
I don’t want Obama to get impeached; if he does Joe Biden replaces him. This being the same guy who was caught on camera before millions of viewers picking his nose during Obama’s State of the Union address. He sits directly behind el presidente — did you REALLY not think anyone would notice, Joe?
