Former 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.
He served on the House Banking committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve's inflationary measures. He was also a key member of the Gold Commission, advocating a return to a gold standard for our currency.
He was an unwavering advocate of pro-life and pro-family values. Dr. Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes, spending, and regulation, and used his House seat to actively promote the return of government to its proper constitutional levels.
To this day, he continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal government and a return to constitutional principles.
