MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Texas Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul said he did not compare a New Hampshire couple who refuses to pay taxes with Gandhi.
On Fox News Channel today, Paul said he doesn't know much about the case of Ed and Elaine Brown on Plainfield, N.H. but that he, like Ghandi, doesn't believe in violence to protest wrongs and it has appeared that the Browns have chosen another path.
His comments on Fox News were consistent with what he said in an interview with the Globe during his first visit to New Hampshire in the winter.
The Browns are currently holed up in their residence surrounded by US Marshalls. They said they will either die or go free, but say they will not pay their taxes because they believe their are unconstitutional.
The Associated Press put up a report on from rougegovernment.com that quoted Paul as saying the Browns were like Gandhi.
