Ron Paul to deliver lecture at university

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas will deliver a lecture, “The Politics of Tolerance” at the University of South Carolina on the future of individual liberty and the importance of the U.S. Constitution at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9, in the Carolina Coliseum.

The event is co-sponsored by South Carolina Honors College, the Carolina Debate Union and Young Americans for Liberty. Paul will highlight the importance of civility and tolerance of all opinions, not just in politics but also in everyday life.

The lecture is open to the public and is free of charge.

Paul, serving his 11th term in Congress, became involved in politics in the late 1970s after service as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force. He earned his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine.

The Carolina Debate Union is a new student organization dedicated to providing a forum for the expression of ideas. The union provides an opportunity for students to augment their education through the study and practice of effective communication and hosts weekly parliamentary debates.

Young Americans for Liberty is a chapter-based organization established as a continuation of Students for Ron Paul. They support constitutional principles and the classical liberal ideology of the Founding Fathers.
