"Ron Paul, father of Rand Paul, has always been an original thinker. As a longtime member of Congress from Texas, on paper a Republican but in posture a Libertarian, Congressman Paul rarely met a spending bill he could like. He was an avowed isolationist and civil libertarian, voting against the Iraq War and the USA Patriot Act. His nickname on Capitol Hill was 'Dr. No.' Paul was, and still is, the hero of the 'liberty' movement. His three presidential campaigns (once as the Libertarian Party nominee and twice as a Republican) were a testament to his devotion to the cause. And his voters were devoted to him like no other candidate’s supporters." (04/07/15)
