Robert Paul Considering U.S. Senate Run in Texas!

Three Pauls?


First it was just Ron Paul.

An obstetrician/gynecologist and libertarian-leaning Republican, Paul of Lake Jackson was elected to the U.S. House more than 20 years ago and maintains a devout following of those who echo his anti-war, anti-tax, limited government beliefs.

Then he was joined by his son, Rand, a Republican ophthalmologist, who became a darling of the Tea Party movement in Kentucky and was elected last year to serve as the Bluegrass State's junior senator. He was sworn in to the U.S. Senate in January.

Now a third Paul - this one Robert Paul, a doctor who runs a family medical practice in Benbrook and lives in Fort Worth - is mulling over whether to make his own congressional bid.


Could there soon be a third member of the libertarian Paul family in Congress?

Robert Paul, a doctor who lives in Fort Worth, is saying maybe, telling a newspaper that he has “thought about running” for the seat representing Texas in the Senate that is being vacated by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is not running for reelection.

This is pure speculation.

Robert hasn't even said he wants to. He's only said "I'm happy doing what I'm doing." basically.

He will have my vote.

If I had any money, he would get it.

The establishment is already beside themselves and are scrambling for a candidate.
They certainly saw Paul coming from back in 08 but the other two Pauls are a definite surprise.
You can bet TPTB are losing sleep over this.

Run Robert Run!

Bush vs. Paul (vs. Clinton)

We at least need as many Pauls having served in Federal Office as we've had Bushes (Prescott, H.W., W.) and even now, "we" are only tied with Clintons...Robert would have my support (if his political views are as impeccable as his father's).

I had to explain to some Texans the other day that the reason California has a Star on its flag is to show revolutionary solidarity with Texas, who left Mexico around the same time.

Unlike Texas, California is a

Unlike Texas, California is a gone case with all socialistic approaches. Union thugs rule CA.

Cali is a harder nut to crack

But you can't say Texas doesn't have its fair share of nuts either.

Texas is better about State's Rights, California is better about Gay Rights (in theory).

Texas is better about Gun Laws, California is better about Drug Laws.

We are both run by the major parties (Texas the GOP, Cali the Dems) and thus I support the Cali Greens and the Texas Libertarians, in order to help break that. I think we'd find ourselves in a much better solidarity if we worked together rather than call each other "socialists" or "racist-homophobes" - such worthless use of the word; the gift from God which we were given in order to speak his truth.

It's called the R3VOLution...LOVE!

I am not sure what will come of this, but I know certainly that my uncle, Robert, would be as fine a choice for a candidate for public office as any.

Some may complain that there are too many "Pauls" in office or other nonsense...but one thing is for sure. He is, in fact, concerned about our country as is my entire family. His views are dead-on in that he believes in a need for the constitution to guide our elected officials, and is an advocate and believer in liberty.

Though it may be perceived as biased (considering it is my uncle), he is incredibly intelligent as he is a doctor, a family man (married with two kids), and has the interesting perspective of having learned about this movement from the man who arguably started it.

Additionally, it was noted how expensive it is to run for office in our flawed system. Many of us feel, believe, and share the same values but few of us could raise the money needed to win. That should not be the determining factor for running for office but seems to be a valid point to me.

I have NO knowledge whatsoever to confirm or deny the validity of his willingness to run as I have not spoken with him today BUT I would surely support him over Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.

Robert has been an important role model for me, as I watched him compete in high school sports, watched the example he set as he attended medical school, and used his example in raising his family as a model for how to raise my own.

Robert is a down-to-earth liberty advocate who would have my full support should he decide to undertake such a monumental task. I have watched what congressional, presidential, and senatorial campaigns can do to people and thier families - I wouldn't wish it on anyone. But if anyone decides to do it - I hope it is my uncle.

Thanks, Matt.

We're all interested, and want to know more about him.

"but few of us could raise the money needed to win. "

There is a Nullification Conference tomorrow here in Austin. Medina will be speaking as will some others. I was hoping to get the chance to meet her, and would love to discuss the potential for supporting Robert.

You can never have "too many Paul's" running for office, although the campaign cash might get spread a little thin.

My only problem with it, is that I would no longer be able to abbreviate "RP" and have no one know which one I was referring too.....8)

I would love to have a
to support and discuss here.


I am now really confused and I am hoping you could find the time to set me straight?

Apparently someone here gave me misguided information in the past when they stated that you are Roberts son.

I am thoroughly confused now?

My maternal grandfather is RP. My mom, Lori, is his oldest daugther. Robert is her younger brother, my uncle. Thus, I do not share the same surname.

Matt Pyeatt

Thank you Sir.

Now I understand,I was curious how the surname was different.I thank you for setting me straight on this Sir.

I am very excited about the current prospects of the Paul camp and very much appreciate your time to participate with us here at the DP.
