Ron Paul

Ron Paul is a former, twelve-term, U.S. Congressman who enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. A two-time presidential candidate, Dr. Paul is a leading spokesman for individual liberty, privacy, limited constitutional government, low taxes and spending, free markets, restrained foreign policy, and sound money based on a commodity-backed currency. He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s and then as a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology in private medical practice.

Dr. Paul is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling books Revolution: A Manifesto and End the Fed plus the books, Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom, The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System, The Case for Gold, Freedom Under Siege: The U.S. Constitution After 200 Years, Pillars of Prosperity, Mises and Austrian Economics, Gold, Peace and Prosperity, and A Republic, If You Can Keep It. He is the Founder of the Foundation for Rational Economics and Education, Honorary Chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus and a former Member of the Congressional Wildlife Refuge Caucus and Congressional Rural Caucus.

The New York Post has called him a man who “cannot be bought by special interests. There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles.” And, Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him “The Thomas Jefferson of our day.”
