Ron Paul The Overlooked Republican Presidential Candidate
Ron Paul - Congressman from Texas
Among the numerous candidates currently running for president the most overlooked candidate is a Republican Congressman from Texas named Ron Paul.
Ron Paul is a medical doctor by training and served as a flight surgeon with the United States Air Force in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. He became active in Texas electoral politics in the 1970s and has served 17 years as a Representative from Texas in the U.S. Congress. In 1988 he bolted the Republican party and ran for President on the Libertarian ticket. As expected, he lost that race but he is now officially in the running for the Republican Presidential nomination and, while largely ignored by the mainstream media, he appears to be gaining traction on the Internet.
