Ron Paul was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 20, 1935. He received a B.S. degree in biology from Gettysburg College in 1957 and a M.D. degree from the Duke University School of Medicine in 1961. He served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and then the United States Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968. Afterward, he opened a private practice in obstetrics and gynecology in Texas.
He served in the United States Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to the present. He has devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. He is the founder of the advocacy group Campaign for Liberty and has been called the "intellectual grandfather" of the Tea Party movement. He has written several books including The Case for Gold, The Revolution: A Manifesto, End the Fed, and Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom.
In the post-meltdown world, it is irresponsible, ineffective, and ultimately useless to have a serious economic debate without considering and challenging the role of the Federal Reserve.
Most people think of the Fed as an indispensable institution without which the country's economy could not properly function. But in END THE FED, Ron Paul draws on American history, economics, and fascinating stories from his own long political life to argue that the Fed is both corrupt and unconstitutional. It is inflating currency today at nearly a Weimar or Zimbabwe level, a practice that threatens to put us into an inflationary depression where $100 bills are worthless. What most people don't realize is that the Fed -- created by the Morgans and Rockefellers at a private club off the coast of Georgia -- is actually working against their own personal interests. Congressman Paul's urgent appeal to all citizens and officials tells us where we went wrong and what we need to do fix America's economic policy for future generations.
