Libertarian former Texas Congressman Ron Paul was hospitalized on Friday after suffering what appeared to be a stroke or similar medical event while he was on the air recording his show “The Liberty Report.” Out of respect for Paul and his family, we will not post the video here.
Well-wishes are pouring in on Twitter, where Ron Paul is trending.
