Thousands of people marched peacefully in Washington D.C. on Saturday,
to honor Texas Congressman Ron Paul's campaign for liberty, yet

spokesman Adam Kokesh, amongst others.

Meanwhile, in what was clearly a gross distortion
of the truth, CNN ran a short report which stated that Ron Paul
addressed only 500 to 800 people.
