Extracts from this document...


Texas Congressman Ron Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was one of four Republican congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan for president in 1976, and at that time he served on the House Banking Committee. As a firm activist for pro-life and pro-family values, he consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes. Then in 1984, he voluntarily handed over his House seat and returned to his medical practice. He returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the 14th congressional district of Texas and now serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

His views include winning the war on terrorism, cutting taxes, preserving the right of all Americans, including the right for gays to marry, and is pro-life.
