The Ron Paul Revolution

rpPOSTER print

Who Is Ron Paul?

Congressman Ron Paul of Texas enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. Dr. Paul is the leading spokesman in Washington for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. He is known among both his colleagues in Congress and his constituents for his consistent voting record in the House of Representatives: Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the "one exception to the Gang of 535" on Capitol Hill.
And he's running for President of the United States of America!  The fact is, he's winning the race now!  Didn't know that?  Find out what the mainstream media doesn't want you to know and much more.  View the links:

Can hardly believe how big she's gotten and how quickly it has happened!
