Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope. A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Rand owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician--not a career politician--Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference. Dr. Paul has been married for 24 years to Kelley Ashby Paul of Russellville, Kentucky, and together, they have three sons: William, 21; Duncan, 18; and Robert, 15. He regularly volunteered to coach teams for each of his three sons in Little League baseball, soccer, and basketball. Rand and Kelley are both devout Christians and are active in their local church. Rand is the third of five children born to Carol and Ron Paul. He grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and attended Baylor University. He graduated from Duke Medical School in 1988. Dr. Paul completed a general surgery internship at Georgia Baptist Medical Center in Atlanta and completed his residency in ophthalmology at Duke University Medical Center. Upon completion of his training in 1993, Rand and Kelley moved to Bowling Green to start their family and begin his ophthalmology practice. In 1995, Rand founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic, an organization that provides eye exams and surgery to needy families and individuals. Rand is a former president and 17 year member of Lions Clubs International, which is dedicated to preserving sight by providing eyeglasses and surgery to the less fortunate around the world. In recognition of his outstanding and sustained efforts to provide vision care to Kentuckians in need, Lions Clubs International has awarded Rand many of its highest commendations. A large part of Rand's daily work as an ophthalmologist was dedicated to preserving the vision of our seniors. In 2002, The Twilight Wish Foundation recognized Rand for Outstanding Service and Commitment to Seniors. During his free time, Dr. Paul performs pro-bono eye surgeries for patients across Kentucky. Additionally, he provides free eye surgery to children from around the world through his participation in the Children of the Americas Program. Most recently, he traveled to Guatemala on a medical mission trip with the University of Utah's Moran Eye Center. During the week over 200 patients, many of them blind with cataracts, had their vision restored by Dr. Paul. Dr. Paul's entrance into politics is indicative of his life’s work as a surgeon: a desire to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions, whether it be in Bowling Green, Kentucky or Washington, D.C. Randal Howard "Rand" Paul (born January 7, 1963) is an American physician and politician from Kentucky. In office since 2011, Paul currently serves in the United States Senate as a member of the Republican Party. He is also a trained ophthalmologist, and is the middle son of former U.S. Representative and physician Ron Paul of Texas. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Paul attended Baylor University and is a graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine. Paul began practicing ophthalmology in 1993 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and established his own clinic in December 2007. Paul has been considered a supporter of the Tea Party movement, and a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve System. He has opposed NSA mass surveillance of Americans and supports reduced government spending and taxation. He describes himself as "100% pro-life" and has cosponsored legislation for equal protection of the right to life from conception. Paul officially announced his candidacy for the 2016 U.S. presidential election on April 7, 2015.

Activist Judges Panicking After Hearing Trump’s Plan For 9th Circuit Court Check The Source Here:https://goo.gl/Ju7tjP Be Our Patriot Patron, 7$/month : https://goo.gl/dFf8nq Patriot SHOP: https://goo.gl/NB1Tsa Donate Here: https://goo.gl/IIMAA5 The activist judges who sit on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals have been a constant thorn in President Donald Trump’s side during his first 100 days in office. Most notably, they halted a temporary travel ban on predominantly Muslim countries from which the majority of the world’s terrorists hail. However, the president has a plan to put an end to this sort of partisan judicial activism, and the judges aren’t going to be happy about it. Not only did the 9th Circuit rule against President Trump’s travel ban, but more recently, a liberal judge in San Francisco stood in the way of the president’s executive order, stripping federal funding from sanctuary cities. This appeared to be the last straw for Trump, who took to Twitter in his usual fashion to air his grievances. But, that’s not all. With the obviously biased decisions of these leftists judges, some of them even Barack Obama donors, having gotten seriously out of hand, Trump believes it’s time to break up the “outrageous” 9th Circuit. President Trump told the Washington Examiner that he is “absolutely” thinking about breaking up the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Trump criticized the heavily liberal court that blocked his executive order calling for a Mideast travel ban. He suggested it would likely uphold the injunction against his withholding of sanctuary cities’ federal funds if the Justice Department appeals that ruling. Trump said that “many people” would support breaking up the “outrageous” bench, adding that he is “absolutely” considering the possibility. [Source: Fox News Insider] Besides the 9th Circuit’s penchant for making judicial decisions based upon personal biases, there is another extremely valid reason to break up the court; namely, it is the largest and most backlogged in the entire country. Residents of the region have absolutely no hope of receiving timely justice, something guaranteed to citizens in the United States Constitution. You would think that with this sort of insurmountable work load the judges of the 9th Circuit and the liberals who back them would welcome the opportunity to break the court up into more manageable jurisdictions. However, always putting party bias before logical reasoning, they want no such thing, lobbying instead to keep the status quo so that they can influence national politics rather than cater to the public they’re meant to serve. This is liberalism at it’s finest, and it’s never what’s best for the people.
