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.

wait wait wait...
He has said all along that these big “money bomb” events were being put on by “independent groups” that weren’t associated with his campaign. That allowed him not to file the required info with the FEC. If HE raised this money, that makes that claim of independence a lie.
Will we see Doctor Paul frog marched to Levinworth?
In the words of Bugs Bunny
What a maroon!
What’s with you McCain n00bies coming in here and complaining about how the forum is run?
Actually we just cannot stomach blame america first skids like paul and on that note have a good day bud
That's fine by me. When the general election rolls around, please do not denigrate us "moonbats" by calling us traitors and pissing and moaning that we should have voted for the GOP nominee when Hillary becomes President-elect.
It's funny. Paul's supporters are supposedly moonbat leftists in the primaries but by all means, they must vote for our GOP nominee or else....THEY'RE POT-SMOKING LOSERTARIANS VOTING FOR THEIR 1%ERS! Get your spin straight.
It's not a "quality product", it's a piece of crap site. They use freaking HTML buttons for links mid-paragraph, for crying out loud. Paul's site, like those of all the other presidential candidates, is pleasant on the eyes.
It sounds like you're just plain conservative, not neoconservative, which is known for liberal, big government domestic leanings.
How can you get past his rejection of Reagan putting Pershing in W. Europe, when that demonstrably won the Cold War? BTW Favre’s on ‘roids.
I'm waiting for FReepers to call former UN Ambassador John Bolton a "traitor." He blamed US policies for the assassination of Bhutto.
In addition, Bhutto herself also stated that US policies were doing more harm than good, in an interview with Parade magazine shortly before her death.
Brazil ended Slavery in 1888!
Here’s more trivia....
The British supported and aided the South during the Civil War because they needed the cotton for their texitle mills.
Civil War was going to happen no matter what because fighting was breaking out in Missouri and Kanas long before the Civil War started.
Remember the Free State, Slave State and John Brown of the 1850’s?
For a Thompson supporter, you sure do spend a lot of time defending TehRon.
Err no, I wasn't around then. You?
You don't know who these people are. The overwhelming anecdotal evidence suggests that Paul's support is not accounted for in traditional MSM polling. Those MSM polls that you and other FReepers cling to like life preservers are only polling the same group of registered Republicans who voted for incumbent Bush in 2004. Those primaries in 2004 had very low voter turnout. Because of Paul's views, he is not going to get the desired results, as this base is pro war and religious right. Many of these polls also do not include Paul's name or list him as "other." Get it?
No, but people who blame America for the attack on us on 9/11 are
Paul has never blamed America for 9/11.
and that is what cut and run and his followers are saying.
You have a fringe minority who are exploiting Paul's campaign and giving the impression that Paul is an anti-war moonbat.
Cut and run is more anti-American than any democrat running
There ain't going to be a Republican Party if you want to stay in the Middle East and keep burning $250 billion a year on a war that has largely been won. You guys are going to keep advocating "staying the course" until people start voting in Green Party socialists into Congress to stop the war. Do you want this to happen?
NO but Ron and his followers do
Lincoln did more to increase the strength of the federal government than any President of the 19th century. What a proud label for the party of small government.
There were two money bomb events that were not coordinated by the official campaign. Read: Events, which means publicity to donate on a specific day, not actual fundraising. People still were directed to go to the official website and donate. Duh.
That allowed him not to file the required info with the FEC. If HE raised this money, that makes that claim of independence a lie.
No, it means you're delusional. All of Paul's donations are in real-time and the running tally is open to the public. The campaign follows all FEC rules and regulations.
it was the party of Lincoln before it was anything else you want to call it
US policies were doing more harm than good?
Because Pakistan never been a really stable country since they broke away from India.
Don’t the Brits share responsiblity? They did controlled that area for about 300 years!
” A Republican candidate that openly talks about abolishing the IRS, limiting government, and getting us out of the UN is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “
Hey you forgot Wild Texas Shrimp and special very expensive earmarks for Paul’s Texas District - You know the earmark spending he proposed before he opposed it???? And don’t forget the conspiracy theories and all the paranoid delusions. That is what helpd me make up my mind to vote AGAINST Paul.
