My Grandfather, The Patriot
My mother, Lori, is the second child born to Dr. Ron Paul. I happen to be the oldest of all the Paul grandchildren. At current count, Ron and Carol Paul have 17 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and one grandchild on the way. My wife and I are proud to have given them a great-grandson only four weeks ago. This blog, â€œMy Grandfather, The Patriot,â€ is aimed at letting people know who Ron Paul is, what he believes, and why he should be elected the next President of the United States.
When Does He Rest? â€“ When I was a young kid, I asked my dad, â€œWhen does Grandaddy Ron rest?â€ I am now twenty-six years old, and I still wonder the same thing. Ron Paul has one of the most grinding schedules of anyone I have ever known! Just to let you know a little about this man, letâ€™s start with the fact that he has not missed a workout in as long as I can remember. Every day, whether in Washington, D.C. or Southeast Texas, my grandfather walks several miles every morning and rides his bicycle as many as 10-15 miles when he gets the chance.
Not many people know this, but my grandfather was an accomplished track star in high school. He probably would have continued to compete in college, but he hurt his knees playing football. The men in our family were all pretty fast, but the standard is still set by my grandfather. Sports and exercise are important to him. Though he doesnâ€™t follow professional sports very closely, he is an advocate for team sports and the lessons that they teach.
I have watched my grandfather work my whole life. Whether reading a book, writing a speech, taking care of his property, or just giving attention to his tomato garden, he does not stop. I am convinced that he will do the same thing for our country when elected president. He will not stop until he restores our republic to the size and scope that was originally intended by our founders. Not many people can say that their grandfather is an â€œAmerican Patriot.â€
