Ronald Ernest Paul (born August 20, 1935) is an American physician and Republican
Congressman for the State of Texas, who gained widespread attention during
his campaign for the 2008 Republican Party presidential nomination. During
the campaign he attracted an enthusiastic following which made use of the
Internet and social networking to establish a grassroots campaign despite
lack of traditional organization or media attention. He criticized the Republican
Party as having abandoned its principles of limited constitutional government.
He supports low taxes, free markets, and sound monetary policies. He is
also strongly opposed to the American involvement in the War in Iraq. He
also called for abolition of many federal institutions including the FBI,
CIA and DEA, abolition of the federal income tax and an end to the war on
drugs. Despite strong support in some races, he failed to win any state-wide
contests. His campaign was coined the "Ron Paul Revolution". He is the founder
of the advocacy group Campaign for Liberty.
Paul is a member of the Liberty Caucus of Republican congressmen which aims
to limit the size and scope of the federal government, and serves on the
House Foreign Affairs Committee, the Joint Economic Committee, and the Committee
on Financial Services, where he has been an outspoken critic of American
foreign and monetary policy. He was one of the first congressmen to support
Ronald Reagan's 1976 presidential campaign and endorsed Reagan again for
President in 1980 and was himself the presidential nominee of the Libertarian
Party in 1988. His ideas have been expressed in numerous published articles
and books, including
