“Ron Paul, has a top three donor list made up of the US Army, US Navy and US Airforce”
That says a lot!
The fantasy that Paul is loved by active duty military personnel continues.
There are many liberal civilians that work for the armed forces. But it looks cool to those that are easily fooled.
“Let’s see. Should I put down ‘busboy’? Nah. I’ll put down ‘Army Ranger.’ Sounds better.”
Somehow we need to delink The Goldman Sack from the US gov’t.
Yeah, Paul donors claim to be service members on the form. The claims are unsubstantiated. We went through this four years ago. Notice how actual polling data never bears out this Paulestinian myth.
And welcome to Free Republic!
The people on this thread are fooling themselves. young military types really do like ron paul. I’ve seen it first hand. They do not pick a candidate that will benefit them personally. They pick one that they believe is best for the country. That is how military men think.
Why not mention in the article of the top ten for Perry, Gingrich, Santorum?
So why don’t polls of servicemembers even show Paul in the top 3? Perry way outpolls him.
I did a little research on Ron Paul’s overwhelming support from military donors. At Open Secrets, you can search the data base on each politicians contributors. Turn’s out there are 71 donors who listed US Army as their employer. Contributed just over $20K to Paul. The active duty strength of the US Army is about 488,000. That means 0.0145% of the US Army contributed to Ron Paul. Not what I’d call overwhelming support. (You can do the same for Air Force and Navy. Should be about the same.)
Goldman Sachs and Romney? No Problem!
Republicans here have a real problem with the Constitution. It is too radical! Go to the Congress before starting another War! Radical! He will get us all killed!
MORE interventionism? Learn nothing from the waste in Iraq!
The Army contributes to political candidates???
This is horrific. I don’t think any other GOP candidate has EVER received money from an investment bank before.
Romney and Obama will be fighting it to see who gets more money from the bankers. The WH is owned by Goldman.
Where’s the “Not this crap again” picture.
If the Paul cult were told to write in “NFL quarterback” to the campaign donation form when they send Paul their allowance from mom and dad, they would. The campaign would have an 800% support of NFL QBs.
To think military people would support a wacko that wants to gut the military, allow nukes for enemies, and blame the US for 9/11 is as nutty as their candidate.
