Congressman Ron Paul will be in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Paul, a Republican from Texas, is a presidential hopeful for the 2012 elections.

“America is the greatest nation in human history. Our respect for individual liberty, free markets, and limited constitutional government produced the strongest, most prosperous country in the world. But we have drifted far from our founding principles, and America is in crisis. Ron Paul’s ‘Restore America’ plan slams on the brakes and puts America on a return to constitutional government. It is bold but achievable. Through the bully pulpit of the presidency, the power of the Veto, and, most importantly, the united voice of freedom-loving Americans, we can implement fundamental reforms,” according to Paul’s website.
