Ron Paul said today his presidential campaign raised nearly $20 million in the last three months of 2007 from 130,000 donors.
Ron Paul brought in nearly $5.3 million that quarter.
Paul's campaign said that more than 107,000 donors were new and the average donation was about $90. More than half of the total came from two 24-hour online fund-raising events organized by supporters -- one on Nov. 5, and the second centered in Boston on Dec. 16.

Let me ask again. Is being pro-life, pro-border security, and pro-2nd Amendment, and believing in a foreign policy that used to be a Republican Party tradition, Republican enough?
Good Lord, what do you have to do to be a Republican then if the above criteria doesn't suffice? Be Jesus Christ himself?
They have their own party he can run in without slapping the Republican label on him.
He has been an elected Republican since 1976.
he said "every other," and he specifically blamed the Republican party and Abraham Lincoln, even though South Carolina had seceded 12/20/60, and several others had follwed before Lincoln was inaugurated 3/4 /61
Ron Paul says Lincoln should have bought the slaves and turned them loose, but will be unable to rationalize that the buying and selling of people is what started all the $#!t in the first place.
[Note: Since Ron Paul received an endorsement from the whore house in Nevada called the Bunny Ranch, it will be revealed that it is the same whorehouse that received a rave endorsement from Bill Clinton.]
If I am correct in calculation that's an average of $130 per donor.
Life MUST be good...
Just another asinine, pathetic comment.
If he had any true Republican support he be be over 2% of Republican backing.
If you had any understanding of the polls, that they are not polling the disgruntled Republicans, independents, libertarians, and Democrats crossing over to Paul, you'd know that the "low in the polls" is just BS.
The other support comes from the far left blame America first anti-Americans.
So people who oppose a war that's going on six years now and should have been finished within 2 are blame Americans now.
You really have no clue as to what's going on right now but I'll just let you remain in self-denial and not brief you on the fact that the election paradigm has completely changed.
That kinda' narrows the political field for true conservatives who tote the sense to come in when the rain starts.
for that he's owed nothing, having been elected in a safe Republican district where anybody else, or a series of anybody elses, could have been elected. There has been very little unfair criticism of him, it's just you Paul supporters are thin-skinned and object to people criticising him for taking the kinds of positions that Michael Moore, Cindy Sheehan and George Soros have been criticized for for years around here. And your election scenario is a hoot.
You keep posting that ridiculous Don Black pic as if it means something, but all you’re doing is preaching to the choir. You’re not going to change the minds of Paul supporters who already know that Paul is not a racist. Don Black himself has stated that he’s unhappy that Paul doesn’t support white supremacism, and none other than the New York Times have retracted a smear job associating Paul with them.
No sugar coating now EEE, tell us all how you really feel. ; )
If he was a wacko, he wouldn't be getting the support he's getting.
It is fringe wacko independent money.
It is money donated from people from all walks of life, sick and tired of pompous armchair pundits like yourself who believe that everyone should follow polls and mindlessly engage in petty bickering over cookie-cutter candidates who'll do little to address the status-quo.
We sometimes forget that there are extremists on the Dem side and the GOP side, and that there is no reason that independent need be categorized as Moderate.
The people who created this nation were extremists too.
Paul doesn't like this nation, he thinks it should be 2, at least, USA and CSA
Where has Dr. Paul advocated such talk that defines treason?
Ron Pauls supporters - traitors all - are a cancer upon the Republican Party and, indeed, upon the American people as a whole.
The real cancer of the GOP is people like Giualini, Huckabee, Arlen Specter etc, who are pushing the Republican Party into a replica of the Democrat one.
Conservative websites, including this one, should form a common front and purge all supporters of the traitor Ron Paul.
Oh no...what will I do with my time then...

Are you serious? Not real fond of the first amendment? I do wish the Paul fans would get honest and look at his poor record, that would help. But we could do it your way....can we go after the handful of McCain supporters next?
The First Amendment neither binds private organization - nor is it so expansive as to cover words which aid the enemies of America in wartime. After all, I would point out to you that the Sedition Act was passed by a Congress consisting of many of the same people who voted for the First Amendment in the first place.
You know what is funny is that some Paul supporters here complain about some so called Paul purge, yet they are still here and they have more of a voice here than most other Conservative forums. Some, like Travis (courtesy ping) are actually decent apologists for their candidate’s platform and are a joy to debate.
To a lot, I think any challenge to their view is considered oppression to them.
Opposing a war in which American troops are fighting - taking up the cause of our enemies - is treason.
Of course, lately, the good Dr. Paul has shown himself to be more than that - admitting not only to being a modern-day Copperhead but an actual Copperhead as well.
It’s difficult to buy with a straight face the claim of Ron Paul’s supporters to be patriotic when they’ve rallied behind a man who has openly admitted that, if it had been up to him, the United States of America would not exist as a single country today.
Oh please, the moment he declared his candidacy, you guys and the elites in the GOP and Faux News have been howling like a pack of hyenas.
it's just you Paul supporters are thin-skinned and object to people criticising him for taking the kinds of positions that Michael Moore, Cindy Sheehan and George Soros have been criticized for for years around here.
When has Moore, Sheehan, and Soros all call for a non-interventionist foreign policy and no nation-building? Paul is not anti-war in the leftists sense.
And your election scenario is a hoot.
It's all backed by anecdotal evidence.
“AuntB, furquhart is right in that first amendment rights dont apply in a private forum. “
Please, save it. Only a fool doesn’t know that. Are you for booting the supporters of a candidate you don’t like? Really?
If they’re breaking rules, kick ‘em out. But I can’t believe you would advocate that. It could be your guy next.
“Non-interventionism” = support for the victories of our enemies = treason.
But none dare call it treason.
This is the problem. We allow this cancer to grow, instead of dealing with traitors in the only proper way.
