Ron Paul

Biography

American physician and politician, an active member of the Libertarian Party and its nominee for President in 1988. Paul joined the 2008 race for President as well, participating in the Republican Party debates. He is adamantly opposed to the US war in Iraq and to income taxes. He also ran in the Republican candidate race for the 2012 presidential election. On 14 May 2012 Paul announced that he would not be competing in any other Presidential primaries, though he did not formally give up yet.

A graduate of Duke University School of Medicine, Paul joined the military as a surgeon. Upon his discharge, he moved to Texas in 1968 to open a medical practice. He was first elected to the US Congress in 1976 by his Texas constituency (the 14th district) and was returned to his seat in the House of Representatives again for a second term. Believing in term limits, he returned to his medical practice in 1984 where his focus has been obstetrics and gynecology.

He is the author of several books, including "Challenge to Liberty" and "The Case for Gold."

He and his wife have five children.
