Ron Paul, more of an anti-war leader than Pelosi!

Ron Paul is the new Six Million Dollar Man:

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, raised an astounding $6 million and change Sunday, his campaign said, almost certainly guaranteeing he'll outraise his rivals for the Republican nomination in the fourth quarter and likely will be able to fund a presence in many of the states that vote Feb. 5.

Paul's campaign spokesman late Sunday announced the campaign had eclipsed the $5.7 million that John Kerry raised the day after he locked up the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination – arguably the largest single-day fundraising haul in U.S. political history.

Paul's single driving position behind the fundraising, including the November 5th, $4.2 million haul is his stance on the Iraq war and his rallying against the Bush civil liberty destruction machine. His supporters see themselves as true patriots and many of them are. Paul has the highest number of active military as donors than any other candidate. Go figure. Should we be surprised others in the GOP are fed up with BushCo and the war?

For instance, he said 24,940 new donors contributed during the Dec. 16 haul.

It was timed for the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, a day meant to resonant with the Libertarian sensibilities of his supporters.

What is terminally sad is he is doing more to get us out of Iraq than Nancy Pelosi. The mind boggles.

Ron Paul's Iraq stance isn't just some pacifist viewpoint but one of common sense based on the Constitution.

The US had no reason to invade Iraq, it had nothing to do with 9/11. Simple as that.

A big reason I'm pushing for Rep. Paul is his proven track record against big government, against giving American taxpayer's money to crooked governments and worthless causes, and his desire to dump worthless government agencies like the Dept of Homeland (in)security, and the DEA - neither of which has made American safer, yet has sucked BILLIONS of our $$$ into a black hole.
