Who the hell is Ron Paul? I decided to look him up on Wikipedia, and here’s some of what I found out:
Source of my information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Paul
- He is a candidate for the Republican nomination in our next presidential election in 2008
- He is a 10th term Congressman from Lake Jackson, Texas
- He’s a physician, and earned the nickname of “Dr. No”, because he votes against any bill that he feels violates the Constitution
- Mr. Paul supports free trade, wants tighter border security, and gun ownership.
- He opposes abortion, the income tax, the federal War on Drugs and the federal regulation of marriage.
Those are just some of the things that stuck out for me in reading the article. I’ll be reading more on him in the coming days – this article goes back to his upbringing, and relates his military experiences and life in politics. He sounds pretty interesting.
