Iowa Press Citizen

Texas Rep. Ron Paul said on Monday that Americans should have the same right to oust federal judges as Iowans did with their historic vote last November to remove three State Supreme Court justices.
“At the federal level, I think we ought to have the same rights you do in Iowa,” the potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate said to a supportive crowd of about 200 on the University of Iowa campus.
“In Iowa, you absolutely had the right to do what you did because that is how the system works.”
However, Paul said removing federal judges is unlikely, and said the Federal Court has “improved its rulings on private property.”
Paul was in Iowa City touting his vision of small government, no income taxes and protection of personal freedoms.
