Dr. Paul served twelve terms in the US House of Representatives and was a three-time candidate for US president. He has 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 1960s, Dr. Paul moved to Texas to begin a civilian medical practice, delivering over four thousand babies in his career as an obstetrician.
Dr. Paul served in Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to 2013. He and Carol Paul, his wife of more than fifty years, have five children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
