Ron Paul was brought up in Pittsburgh, the son of Howard Paul and Margaret Paul. Paul attended Dormont High School, and then graduated from Gettysburg College with a degree in Biology in 1957. Three years later, he started attending the School of Medicine at Duke University, where he obtained his medical degree. His education was completed in Detroit at the Henry Ford Hospital.

After he finished his education, Ron shortly worked as a gynecologist at the Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh and then entered the US Air Force as a flight surgeon, serving from 1963 until 1965. Furthermore he worked in the United States Air National Guard from 1965 until 1968, then worked privately in gynecology and obstetrics.

Ron`s political career began in 1971, when he became a Republican candidate for the US Congress. In 1974 he lost in the elections for the 22nd Texas district, to Robert R. Casey, but in 1976 he won the special elections since Casey resigned from his position. This increased Ron`s net worth to a large degree. However, Ron lost the next elections to Democratic candidate Robert Gammage, by a small margin of only 300 votes. Nevertheless, Ron won the elections held two years later and he was successful again in 1982, which increased further his net worth.

In 1984 Ron Paul lost the race for a place in the Senate, and left politics for a short time to become a businessman, founding Ron Paul & Associates, Inc. together with Lew Rockwell, which also contributed to his net worth.

In 1988, Paul made a comeback to politics, but this time he was a member of the Libertarian Party. He soon became a Presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party, but his run was unsuccessful.

In 1996 he returned to the Republican Party, and immediately started a campaign for a place in the House of the Representatives. He won the elections against Democratic Candidate Charles “Lefty” Morris, serving as a Congressman of the 14th Texas District until 2013, when he retired from the Congress. Over time he defeated several candidates, including Chris Peden and Loy Sneary. His position steadily enhanced his net worth.

In addition to his successful political career, Ron also ran unsuccessfully as Presidential candidate of the Republicans in the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Ron Paul is also recognized author; some of his published works include “A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship” (2007), “Gold, Peace, and Prosperity: The Birth of a New Currency” (1981), “Liberty Defined” (2011), and his latest release “Swords Into Plowshares: A Life in Wartime and a Future of Peace and Prosperity”, which also added to his overall net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Ron has been married to Carolyn Wells since 1957. The couple has five children; their son Randal has followed his father`s steps and currently serves as junior United States senator from the state of Kentucky.

Thanks to his successful career as a politician, Paul`s personality has been depicted in films and books, such as William Lewis` film “Ron Paul Uprising” (2012), and in a book by Brian Doherty “Ron Paul’s rEVOLution: The Man and the Movement He Inspired” (2012).

Quotes

#Quote
1If you can't protect life, how can you protect liberty?
2One of the reasons I think that we do such a poor job on protecting our borders is the fact that leaders on both sides of the aisle strongly support the notion that we should have a union, where you literally obliterate the borders and have the three countries become one and that to me is a lot different than being friends.
3We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and over run by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with.
4By the way, when I say cut taxes, I don't mean fiddle with the code. I mean abolish the income tax and the IRS, and replace them with nothing.
5I have no problems with the theoretical position of the neo-cons to spread the goodness of America. But just not with force. We should spread it by setting a good example. Getting our house in order. Making sure civil liberties are defended here.
