Dr. Ron Paul
Founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, a two-time Republican presidential candidate and one time Libertarian nominee, and a multiple-term congressman of Texas, is a leading advocate of freedom in our nation. He devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him “The Thomas Jefferson of our day.” After serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force in the 1950s, Dr. Paul went on to deliver over 4,000 babies in his career as an obstetrician. He served in Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to 2012. The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity is a project of Dr. Paul’s Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (F.R.E.E.), founded in the 1970s as an educational organization. The Institute continues and expands Dr. Paul’s lifetime of public advocacy for a peaceful foreign policy and the protection of civil liberties at home.
