Dr. Paul is a native of Pennsylvania, and a graduate of Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, where he earned his medical degree. From 1963 to 1968, Ronald Ernest Paul served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force. In the 1960s and 1970s, Ron Paul worked as an obstetrician gynecologist and delivered more than 4,000 babies.

In 1970s, Ron Paul made his entry in politics. He failed a Congressional bid in 1974. Two years later, he was victorious in a special election to replace Representative Robert R. Casey, who had resigned. The same year, Paul established the Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (FREE).

After not being able to retain his post in general election, Ron Paul retried his luck in 1978. In his political career, Paul emerged as a strong critic of the country's banking and financial systems. In 1984, Ron Paul made an unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate against Phil Gramm and was later succeeded in the House of Representatives by Tom DeLay.

In 1988, Ron Paul made a comeback in politics to become the presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party. However, he differed with Libertarians over the abortion issue and came in third after receiving almost 500,000 votes in the general election.
