Representative Ron Paul of Texas has generated headlines in the 2008 race with his massive fund-raising and fervent supporters. But this isn't Paul's first run at the Oval Office. In 1988, Paul ran as a member of the Libertarian Party. His views haven't changed much over the past two decades -- much like his platform today, Paul ran then on promises to shrink the government, eliminate the personal income tax, and bring troops home from overseas.
