Ron Paul raises $9 million in 2 months
Seattle Times ^ | 11/23/07

Posted on 11/24/2007 9:22:29 AM PST by traviskicks

In another sign of Rep. Ron Paul's online fundraising prowess, the Republican presidential candidate from Texas said in a TV interview Friday that he has raised more than $9 million during the past two months and expects to raise a total of at least $12 million for the fourth quarter.

Paul, speaking on Bloomberg Television's "Political Capital with Al Hunt," said he considers his recent fundraising success "astounding."

He added that his campaign plans another "special" fundraising day Dec. 16. On Nov. 5, Paul supporters raised $4.3 million, one of the biggest single-day showings of any candidate in history.

If true, that is a sadder reflection on the republicans than it is on Dr. Paul, since he restricts his "yes" votes to legislation which he believes is authorized by the Constitution.....Are you suggesting that a good republican should be in favor of hatred, bigotry and violence?

Hi Madame, it's good to see you again.

First, I don't 'suggest' things, so don't put words in my mouth. You're better than that.

Paul is not the same guy we thought he was when he came out with all his good talk years ago. As for your first statement, how do you justify Paul co sponsoring 1876 bills that others wrote? All constitutional....sure, you bet. Look at the facts, Madame. Paul can't do what you're dreaming he can. All his talk about 'small government' is just that, talk. He was elected to be a legislator, not a commentator

Ron Paul has never produced one piece of effective legislation that did anything to control illegal immigration. In fact Paul has never gotten any of his legislation through the process. Ever. He has NO support or endorsement from his congressional colleagues. His claim of small government is just that, nothing but a claim.

Ron Paul has proved he can’t ‘govern’. He has a zero record of accomplishments, except for pushing 1876 bills others wrote through congress. Small government guy?

Just for comparison of actual accomplishments in congress:

Sponsored means he wrote or introduced the bill. Co sponsors sign on to other bills written by someone else.

Statistics: Duncan Hunter has sponsored 105 bills since Jan 7, 1997, of which 72 haven’t made it out of committee (Average)

and 10 were successfully enacted (Good, relative to peers).

Hunter has co-sponsored 894 bills during the same time period (Average, relative to peers).

Now take a look at Ron Paul, who claims many ‘accomplishments’ and would never vote for any frivolous, unconstitutional bill!

Statistics: Ronald Paul has sponsored 346 bills since Jan 7, 1997, of which 341 haven’t made it out of committee (Extremely Poor) and 0 were successfully enacted .(Average, relative to peers).

Paul has co-sponsored 1876 bills during the same time period (Average, relative to peers) NOTE: 1876 bills, written by other congress members. All ‘constitutional’ ? You decide.

Next time a Libertarian talks about opposing decency in broadcasting, show them the Sarah Silverman show.

Ummm, the Sarah Silverman Show is on a cable station and is not broadcast. She’s hot, BTW.

Yeah she’s especially hot when she licks the ass of a dog.

You know, that last comment wasn’t really appropriate for a family-friendly forum.

How do you reckon that other congressmen not supporting his bills equates to him not being in favor of smaller government?

I'd like to, but the link you provided was to info on Duncan Hunter, not Ron Paul. Is there a summary of these bills somewhere that I can peruse?

(It is nice to see you too. Hope you've been well.)
