Conservatives and independents are flocking to Ron Paul's candidacy for president, at least with their money.....
Well, it looks like Ron Paul, the 10-term Republican congressman from Texas with the libertarian ideas, and his brave band of fervent followers have broken their own one-day online fundraising record.
As of shortly after midnight Sunday Pacific time, the Paul website was reporting more than $6 million raised on Sunday from more than 30,000 donors and an amazing fourth-quarter fundraising total surpassing $18.1 million. The little-known pro-life Texan, who favors abolishing much of the federal government and the Federal Reserve, could raise the most money of any Republican candidate this quarter. A spokesman said the average donation was $50.
I kind of like the good doctor....but of course, he, like Huckabee for the Dems, will never become president. The story here is that a whole bunch of those on the right like what Paul is saying about foreign policy and faithfulness to the Constitution and perhaps even taxes. The reason this bunch find Paul appealing is because the other Republican candidates, with Mike Huckabee perhaps the exception, can't seem to relate, really, to good old, grass roots, patriotic, conservative Americans.
