Individual liberties need to be restored, Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul told hundreds during today's town hall meeting in Twin Falls. “We have to recommit ourselves to what a free country is all about,” Paul said. Audience members cheered as the Texas congressman took the stage at Twin Falls High School's Roper Auditorium. Paul said if he's elected, he'd cut the federal budget by $1 trillion during his first year as president. Paul joined fellow GOP nomination hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in scheduling Idaho campaign stops this week, in preparation of the state's March 6 GOP caucus. Paul's other talking points included abolishing income tax, ending foreign wars and the U.S. regulation on drugs/Julie Wooton, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.

Question: Do you plan to attend the rallies for Ron Paul either in Moscow or Spokane Friday?
