At this special event, Ron Paul will take a candid look at America's increasingly dysfunctional political system. Drawing on his 24 years in Congress, he will highlight the need to rein in unchecked government power.
The author of numerous #1 New York Times bestselling books, Dr. Paul is a leading advocate for individual liberty, privacy, limited constitutional government, low taxes and spending, free markets, restrained foreign policy, and sound money. The New York Post has called him a man who "cannot be bought by special interests. There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles." And, Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him "The Thomas Jefferson of our day."
Ron Paul is a former, twelve-term, U.S. Congressman who enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. A three-time presidential candidate, Dr. Paul graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s and then as a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology in private medical practice. He is the author of eleven books, including the bestselling Liberty Defined, Revolution: A Manifesto, End the Fed, and The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System.

"I strongly support Ron Paul, we very badly need to have more . . . who understand in a principled way the importance of property rights and religious freedom."
--Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize Laureate in Economic Sciences
"He has the newest and the oldest campaign message there is: freedom matters."
--Andrew M. Sullivan, author, blogger and former Editor, The New Republic
"What the founders knew is that you can get any decent person in there, you give them unchecked power, and they become a monster. . . . Ron Paul has always talked about these issues, and . . . I have a lot of respect for what he's saying."
--Naomi Wolf, author, The Beauty Myth and Give Me Liberty
"In Congress, Paul is known as Dr. No, for his staunch refusal to vote for any bill he thinks might expand government power. . . . This message has hit home."
--New York Times
"I think he's the only guy who really understands monetary policy, economic policy, the proper role of the state, the proper role of the U.S. in the world. . . . if you asked me who is speaking truth to power, it's Ron Paul."
--David A. Stockman, former Director, Office of Management and Budget; author, The Triumph of Politics and The Great Deformation
