Ron Paul, a former politician who served as the US Representive for Texas gave the speech, "What If". Formerly, a doctor and an author, Ron Paul understands the need for protection for all Americans. Ron Paul has been consistent for honest money, freedom of liberty and minding our own business. As he has pointed out, the wrong choices made by our country could result in global warfare.
