Ron Paul

Have you heard of this man? He is running for President. I am sure that Texas readers have heard of him - he is a Congressman from Texas! He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, graduated from the Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960's. Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies! :-) He and his wife Carol live in Lake Jackson, Texas. They have five children and 17 grandchildren! (Last she told me, my sister Millie and Adam have 17 grandchildren too.) He is in favor of bringing out troops home, I love that!

Read more about him.

I am just learning about this man. From what I've read and watched so far, I like him! Check him out! I especially like what he believes about eminent domain. I've always found it repulsive for our government to come in, say that they know best for how a private property will benefit others and then settle to pay way below what it's worth as they bump out the owners. That is so awful! Shame on our government, big town, small town and wherever else this is allowed to happen!

Connie Marie, Dr. Paul delivered my youngest son, Jeremy. Freeport is about 12 minuets from Lake Jackson. He is a very honest and sincere man. He is the same no matter where you meet him and he is never to good to say hello. Yes, Iknow Dr. Paul very well, you could say. lol. Have a very good weekend, my dear friend. connie from texas

There was a booth for him at the fair. Right next to the big barn on the path in from the yellow gate.

Hi Thoughtful Connie, so Jeremy is one of the many 4,000 plus babies Dr. Paul has delivered! Cool. Nice to see someone running for President that appears to possess integrity, friendliness and his ideas sound very good!

Marie, I didn't even see that I was so busy looking for turkey legs! :-D
