Ron Paul Nearly Doubles Donations Since Butting Heads with Rudy Giuliani
Monroe, Ga. 5/31/2007 3:09 PM GMT (FINDITT)
The general feeling after the Republican Presidential debate held in South Carolina on May 15 was that Rudy Giuliani got the better of Texas Republican Ron Paul but according to Paul backers the congressman has seen his donations nearly double since challenging Giuliani on the U.S. involvement in Iraq.
During the debate Paul was asked whether a Republican could stay true to their party and support a measure to bring American troops home at the same time. In response Paul remarked I think the party has lost its way, because the conservative wing of the Republican Party always advocated a non-interventionist foreign policy. Senator Robert Taft didnt even want to be in NATO. George Bush won the election in the year 2000 campaigning on a humble foreign policy - no nation-building, no policing of the world.
So, Paul went from $10 to $20 in the bank?
Largely out of symphathy, as Rudy is such an arrogant a-shole, with nothing to show for it.
Too embarrassed to post the actual numbers?
Ron Paul and his focus on the Constitution has certainly gotten my attention. I haven’t given the RNC a red penny for nearly a year, but I would consider donating to Paul’s cause.
Senator Robert Taft also believed that it was wrong to put Goering and Goebbels on trial.
Senator Robert Taft was a nutball.
Its telling there are no numbers cited in support of this questionable headline.
That said, its not hard to double the money when you don’t have much (comparatively) in the first place.
I suspect thats why this article is intentionally ‘numberless’.
He’d probably give you back what he doesn’t spend too.
Then donate directly to his campaign, don't give it the RNC.
Paul, the 71-year-old obstetrician representing parts of Galveston and the Texas Gulf Coast, finished second among GOP candidates in money raised in New Hampshire and Montana in the first quarter of 2007. He also raised the most money of the second-tier candidates in 14 other states, including Florida and Texas, taking in $640,000 nationwide.
Those are almost all individuals donating...Congressman Paul always votes against the use of taxpayer money to buy votes...so he gets little from special interest groups
Yes, following the Constitution is the zinger. Bush and company apparently could care less especially when comes to illegal immigration.
Standard Republican (Bush) policies are turning the US into the world’s beggar.
So he has 2 donors, instead of 1?
Run Ron!! May the Father through Jesus bless you!!
“Senator Robert Taft also believed that it was wrong to put Goering and Goebbels on trial.
Senator Robert Taft was a nutball.”
Senator Taft didn’t like the idea of a world court. It’s still a silly idea. The people of Germany could have tried them, not the “world community” and the “crimes against humanity” crowd.
What has Paul said about Teddy Roosevelt’s “Big Stick” policy?
When are you Paul fans going to give it up?
Maybe even 1000 to 2000 but small compared to the 100 million needed for this race.
No, Senator Taft claimed that the Nazis were being "unfairly" tried by "ex post facto statutes" - as if the illegality of mass murder was some newfangled legal invention.
The people of Germany could have tried them
Germany did not regain legal sovereignty until May 1955.
Should the victims of these slime have been forced to wait 10 years for justice, only to have these murderers tried under a constitution that banned capital punishment?
Taft was a sickeningly obtuse moron - a fitting subject for a book "written" by JFK.
