As of 1/1/2010 Ron Paul is not a Freemason, but his father (Howard Paul) is a Freemason.
About what matter, specifically? I think his views on the vast majority of political issues are correct. Speaking in terms of recent major events, I certainly think his oft-stated belief that the United States' destructive and out-of-control economic practices were going to lead to a financial catastrophe has been well and thoroughly vindicated (though many nonetheless refuse to acknowledge his correctness or admit the actual causes of said catastrophe). The question is pretty vague, but… Read More
Ron Paul was born on August 20, 1935.
When people say that Congressman Paul is not electable, they say that out of ignorance of American history that has surpassed 3 weeks ago. Ron Paul predicted the 2007 economic bust in the late 1990's. He said we were going to be attacked by terrorists someday if we don't change our foreign policy soon. That was in 1998. In 2001, we were attacked on 9/11, a predictable result of, as he says, "meddling in the… Read More
personally: yes. governmentally: states rights until supreme court overturns (if they do) roe v wade.
He's the only candidate running that's within the 2 party system who is different. They all are the same, from both sides of the aisle they are in it for their corporate masters. He won't get the Repub. nomination because the system will never allow it. So let us all hope that he runs as a 3rd party candidate. If he does step up he will garner a large number of votes and will definitely… Read More

Improved on 5/04/11: Ron Paul was born on August 20th, 1935. If he was elected President in 2008, he would have been 73 years old. Adding 4 years to that, he will be 77 years old if he elected for the 2012 Presidency. As of now, Ronald Reagan holds the 'record' for being the oldest elected President, at a ripe age of 69 years old. Though now in second place, William Henry Harrison (1) previously… Read More
Ron Paul did not drop out, the media just tells you that he did because McCain has the amount of needed delegates. Ron Paul believes that the convention should be used for the delagates to debate the best platform for the party to run on and THEN select the nominee, as such he is still actively seeking delegates.

Back in 1988 Paul filled out a CNN questionaire that called for the elimination of the Border patrol. The BP would be replaced by the Armed Forces. He disputes this claim.

The military is actually one of his largest supporters. He has more donations from the military than any other candidate, including McCain.
Yes, he can win ,but only if enough people are loud enough and people like you and I tell people about him and why to vote for him.
No, of course not.

76. vote for him in 2012
In the opening of his book, The Revolution, Ron Paul said, "Truth is treason in the empire of lies."
The government will not let you know.
I believe he advocates something like this: We should reduce foreign spending (wars, military bases, bringing troops home) and focus on a state-centered, smaller business generated economy. We should restrict trade with foreign countries and focus on US made products and labor. American's would have many decent new jobs in trade work, contract work, construction work, factory work and many others. Around 10% of all Americans are unemployed. The number is likely to be higher… Read More
He is a christian ANSWER Since Ron Paul is a U.S. Congressman, it is more important that he is a patriot that upholds the Constitution of the United States. Very few of them do. I woudl respect him just as much if he were a Jew, a Moslem, Hindu, or even a Scientologist. The Constitution is the issue when it comes to U.S. politics.
Ron Paul and his supporters are basically creating one of the largest grassroots organizations called "The Campaign for Liberty". He and his supporters (despite lack of media coverage) are making a large impression on both the Republican and Democratic parties.
Ron Paul has never claimed to "support marijuana". He does, however, strongly support the legalization of all drugs. He believes that the federal government does not have the right to decide which substances may be possessed or consumed by citizens, and thus, opposes drug penalties.
Barry Manilow donated to the Ron Paul campaign. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was said to be a proponent of Paul's individualist ideology. Political celebrities such as Tucker Carlson, Lew Rockwell, and Andrew Napolitano all supported Ron Paul.
Paul ran for President and for his House seat at the same time.
Ron Paul is not a racist. He is the only man in Washington who has suggested politicians stop using terms such as "white" "black" "hispanic" or "asian" when referring to the American people. He believes we should all be treated as simply Americans, with equal benefits and rights to freedom. He does not support special interest. Also, from the Ron Paul Wikipedia entry: "In 2001, Paul took "moral responsibility" for the comments printed in the… Read More
Many people are coming to the understanding that a there is a false left-right paradigm making the USA work as a two party state, where the difference between the two parties is so minimal they might as well be just one party. This strategy is outlined in Carrol Quigley's "Tragedy and hope". In this strategy it does not matter whether you vote democrat or republican the general overall policy of the elite and the military… Read More
Ron Paul has been married for more than 50 years to Carol Paul. They have raised a family of five children, and they have given them eighteen beautiful grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. -paraphrase from "The Ron Paul I Know" by Carol Paul http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig8/paul-carol1.html
There seems to be some dispute over this. In IA, the night of the caucus, Romney, Santorum, and Paul were all given 7 delegates a piece. Then in NH, Paul has been given 3, Romney got 7 and Huntsman 2. The media is reporting different numbers for this, but the numbers I just gave you came from the local news stations in IA and NH.
he's a closet queen.
If he has enough supporters, he will run.
Mark Levin, a radio talk show host, referred to Ron Paul as Ru Paul in his radio show. His listeners are probably quoting that expression. Levin is a life-long conservative and constitutional attorney, who has an originalist approach to government. Name-calling is nothing new on Levin's show, and it is usually political ad hominem for the purpose of entertainment. The name RuPaul is a jab at Ron Paul's reputation and legitimacy as a statesmen. Mark… Read More
Yes. (in a way) Ron Paul started the tea party. But it was really a grass roots movement with which Ron Pauls 2008 presidential campaign had nothing to do with. It was a spontaneous up-swell of support of Dr Paul which culminated in the Moneybomb which set historical all time records in fund raising!!! But the "tea party" was quickly hijacked by fox news, Sarah Palin and other "false conservatives". I'm unsure if you could… Read More
Ron Paul criticized America and it's citizens. He wanted people to suffer a little in order to help the country overall. People don't want to suffer for their future generation and children. They don't like being criticized because it reminds them how bad they are to their country. Americans didn't listen to JFK's famous line: Don't ask what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. Ron Paul Could… Read More
Many of us pray that he does. If Americans realize each vote COUNTS then maybe. He is by the people, for the people.
Formally, not yet. However, I believe he does ideologically. It's kind of like this: Rush advocated Ron Paul's fiscal plan to one of his radio show callers, but then seems to endorse Mitt if you look at his homepage. Ultimately, a sheriff is tough on corruption abroad, as is Dr. Paul. It would only serve to reason that they should join forces by way of an endorsement on the sheriff's part, because they carry the… Read More
In 2008, Ron Paul's IQ was estimated at 130-140, the highest of the republican candidates.
Hard question, Most of his ideas Seem alright except for him believing in legalizing drugs. Some laws are made for people's safety not just to shove a boot up your butt ( figure of speech) any way, he talks about supporting the econmy but I haven't heard any plans for that other than cutting on over sea spending.
He'd have to win the presidency in order to announce it. Thankfully, that will never happen.
He graduated from Gettysburg College with a B.S. degree in Biology in 1957. He then earned a Doctor of Medicine degree from Duke University
Ron Paul is a Libertarian, but is running as a Republican in the 2012 presidential race. He attracts large numbers of Independents, Democrats, and numerous Conservative Republicans.

His stances are based on conservative principles.
No. Ron Paul opposes federal recognition of same-sex marriages, but also opposes a federal ban, saying that he believes it is a states rights issue. He supports a law to keep the federal judiciary from imposing same-sex marriage in jurisdictions where it hasn't been legislated.
Incumbent President Barack Obama won reelection in the 2012 presidential election defeating Mitt Romney.
JMO: It's because if he was voted for president, things would actually get better. No more 9/11's would happen. No more bs wars would happen. Things would actually 'change'. So, since change is apparently not in our best interest, 'they' made it so the media doesn't talk about Paul.
Not a single one.
Ron Paul is not out of the race. He is still running and campaigning in upcoming states. It is also not impossible for him to to still win the nomination, though he is currently projected to have the least delegates of all the candidates.

Dr. Ron Paul will not be able to do as much as you might think. He is a constitutionalists. He believes that presidents for many years have overstepped the power provided to the executive branch as described in the constitutional. I am just some guy sitting at my computer thinking about the idea of Ron Paul as our next president. I will vote for the Republican candidate this year against Obama, no matter who it… Read More
Will he get the Republican nomination to become the head of a party he's almost certain to polarize? No, absolutely not. And we're all better off for it.
Ron Paul is a Republican from Houston, TX. He is also a physcian. He has been in the House of Reps for over 20 years now. He was for many years, the only libertarian member. He strongly believes in limited government, which explains his opposition to the Iraqi war. He also believes that the IRS needs to be replaced with less bureacratic system that is more fair. Even though he believes in limited government, he… Read More
2012 is the third time Ron Paul has run for president. He ran in 1988 as a Libertarian and again in 2008 as a Republican, when he was defeated in the Republican primaries by John McCain.
You can re-register as a republican and vote for Ron Paul in the 2012 primaries. Most states require you to switch parties at least 12 weeks before the primary or caucus, so you need to plan ahead. If you do not want to register as a republican, you can help by talking to your friends and family or volunteering for Ron Paul's campaign (it is easy to get involved at Ron Paul's website).
Ron Paul advocated the legalization of marijuana at the federal level. The states would still have the power to decide whether marijuana was legal to posses, sell, etc. in their jurisdiction as per the tenth amendment of the constitution.
Probably in many areas of life, such as being a doctor, but not as a President in most people's opinions. He has a strong but very small group of backers. Many other people find some of Ron Paul's ideas, especially about racial equality disturbing. He touts reverting to segregation and other ideas that would be taking giant steps backwards in civil rights.
Ron Paul is currently a representative of the 14th district of Texas in the United States House of Representatives.
Businessman and Television Host Donald Trump is not at all pursuing the presidency for 2012, he is simply dabbling in the Presidential race by "considering" to run as an independent earlier this year, meeting up will almost all of the Republican Presidential candidates, and agreeing to host one of the Republican Presidential debates only to attract publicity to himself and his show The Apprentice. Although Congressman Ron Paul is a very centrist candidate (socially liberal… Read More
He seeks a return to the gold standard. The rigidity of the gold standard made it next to impossible for money markets to recover during the Great Depression, which is why much of the world abandoned it. Additionally, going back to the gold standard would give a worldwide conglomerate of gold miners control over money markets much in the same manner as what OPEC has on oil supplies and prices. He seeks to end the… Read More
It went about 3600 feet
Ron Paul understands that the Federal Reserve creates inflation and harms the markets as well as college students trying to pay for constantly increasing tuition fees. He also would cut spending and taxes and restore us to a free market system without corporate socialism or government socialism.
No, he is a libertarian leaning Republican. His views include limited government and a free market system, which are pure Republican views.
Because tax returns don't matter when he's talking about ending the Fed, ending the wars, ending the spending, ending the inflation, and ending corporate welfare. Those are REAL issues.
We the People!
He served in the U. S. House of Representatives.
Ron Paul doesn't really have a chance to win in 2012. He is still running although he has stopped campaigning. Mitt Romney is truly the Republican Candidate. This is purely a race between Obama and Romney.

Ron Paul served as a U.S. representative of the state of Texas. He should not be confused with his son, Rand, who was elected to the U.S. Senate from the state of Kentucky.
I personally see Gary Johnson as a good leader, but libertarianism works therefore every libertarian leader is a good one.
There may be some people who are ashamed at their presidential choice and bumper sticker after the election. A person can choose to remove their bumper sticker or allow it to remain to show their support for their candidate.
Hell no, Ron Paul is a LIBERTARIAN which is a far cry from a liberal he is a strict "Constitutionalists"in favor of small government, sound fiscal policy, and non intervention unless in immanent danger.
This could be seen as something of a trick question.
Given the amount of time Ron Paul and Joe Biden have spent in politics, as well as the fact that Biden is vice president and Ron Paul is one of the Republican candidates trying for the nomination for the presidency, it's almost certain they've met, although a bit doubtful they're going to be BFFs.
Ron Paul's middle name is Ernest. His full name is Ronald Ernest Paul.
Ron Paul has a history of opposing gay rights and generally takes a typically conservative view on homosexuality.
Well, he will of course deal with real threats when they arise. The thing with government today is that they use objects of hatred such as terrorism against the majority of the population. They convince us to go to executive-branch produced war only to provide for special interests or shady plots the Federal government truly has. How he will deal with threats is most likely what any logical man would do, he would assess the… Read More
Yep. Just look at his record.
Yes, Ron Paul opposes equality for gay people. As of 2013, Ron Paul opposes same-sex marriage, gay adoption, and was also an appointment of the repeal of Dont Ask Don't Tell.
I'm sure he has votes in every state. There just aren't enough in each state for him to carry any of the states.
Ron Paul is dead last. Rick Santorum is in 2nd.
He is the bravest politician that has lived in America since Ronald Reagan. He has never voted in favor of any bill that would raise taxes. He believes in restoring America according to the constitution. He represents his positions by his own example. He would keep the Federal Gvt. out of personal affairs. He believes in responsible American's rights to bear arms. He detests abortion, but cases of rape he supports administering of shots that… Read More
The important thing when running for nomination is delegates. The delegates from each state vote on who the nominee will be. In some states, the counties decide the state delegates, and the precincts decide the county delegates and so on. It is mathematically possible for someone who comes last in a state to collect all the delegates, and that is what Ron Paul claims to be doing in many states. Nevertheless, delegate estimates are putting… Read More
