Rep. Ron Paul warns against 'too much dictatorship' in Washington
MASON CITY, Iowa --- Exclaiming "our rights come from our creator, not our government," U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, brought his conservative message to North Iowa Tuesday.

Making reference to the Old Testament, the congressman talked about how Samuel warned his people about the dangers of having a king who they wanted to take care of their needs. "Samuel told them it's not a good idea.

"We're not on the verge of having a king, but we are on the verge of having way too much dictatorship in Washington, D.C.," Paul said, receiving huge applause.
