It appears that former Texas Congressman and longtime Libertarian icon Dr. Ron Paul just had a stroke – or some other type of serious medical issue – during a live stream of his “Liberty Report” web series, which garners hundreds of thousands of viewers with every episode.
A flood of tweets wishing Paul well followed the emergence of the footage above on social media.
Please pray for Ron Paul. It appears a medical issue may have just happened during his show.

Gateway Pundit reporter Cassandra Fairbanks also tweeted her condolences.
Say a prayer for Ron Paul. He’s truly one of the best humans in politics.

We have yet to receive any kind of confirmation about the Congressman’s status from the Paul camp. Notably, his son, Rand Paul, is currently serving as the junior Senator from Kentucky.
After the popularity of his 2008 presidential bid, Paul announced in July 2011 that he would forgo seeking another term in Congress to focus on his 2012 bid for the presidency. After performing strongly once again, Paul refused to endorse the Republican nominations of John McCain and Mitt Romney during their respective 2008 and 2012 campaigns, and on May 14, 2012, Paul announced that he would not be competing in any other presidential primaries but that he would still compete for delegates in states where the primary elections had already been held.
Paul’s fervid supporters helped him achieve the second highest tallies for delegates during both the 2008 and 2012 Republican National Conventions, behind only McCain and Romney respectively. In January 2013, Paul retired from Congress, though he continued to speak at colleges and work on his “Liberty Report” program.
