Ron Paul: A Life of Ideas is the first biography of 11-term congressman and Internet phenomenon Dr. Ron Paul. This comprehensive volume includes never before published private interviews with Ron Paul, his wife, Carol, plus close friends and associates. Tracing the life of this self-made man through painstaking research, this book covers his formative years spent in Pennsylvania; his careers as an Air Force flight surgeon and, later, an obstetrician; and, finally, his political journey from U. S. Congressman to presidential contender.

Known as “Dr. No” for his refusal to spend taxpayer money unnecessarily, Paul repeatedly overcame substantial opposition to become a nationally recognized political figure, grabbing the spotlight in American politics despite a media that was determined to ignore him. This compelling portrait also chronicles how Paul’s 2008 campaign broke several fund-raising records through its innovative use of the Internet, culminating in a new movement for freedom.

This guy certainly seems to abide by the logic of common sense over fence sitting, which is pretty darn rare in politics these days. Good luck to him

Let's have a common sense candidate run for the Revolution.

The Republican National Convention called me last night and I cut him off with the words, "Vote Ron Paul; that's all I have to say". That is if you're finally fed up with the bull----.

America folded to the pressures of the UN. They scared us into being part of them.. Our leaders knew we would get destroyed. We haven't been the power house in a long time. UN and NWO own it.

Not true. The UN has no military power of their own. They have no standing reserve. They "borrow" forces from participating countries to form a Peacekeeping force that works to protect citizens. The US doesn't contribute because of a preoccupation with being a "power house" instead of promoting peaceful living conditions for all humankind.

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I really like Ron Paul's ideas but I believe that many of them would lead to us being less of the world super power. We would play less of a role in the foreign affairs of others (much less). Our taxes would be much lower and the department of defense would probably lose much funding. We may be a bit less of an intimidating foe abroad but would certainly continue to defend our home land. I for one am OK with this. Being the world super power sure is expensive. I'd rather just know that we have a great nation because we are free, happy, not corrupt, etc. Others would looks at us with envy for what we have, but we may not be a superpower anymore.

I believe it was Jefferson who said, "The less you use power the greater it becomes."
