This election is about one thing and one thing only, keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House. It has to be priority one. I will happily vote for Obama (okay maybe not happily) in the general election if that’s what it takes to keep Hillary from winning. I’ll happily support Rudy McRomney if that’s what it takes.
But more and more when I look at the fundraising figures, I don’t think any of the Republicans can raise enough money to beat a George Soros-funded Hillary campaign. Maybe it’s time to get behind the guy who’ s taking in the most money. For now, that’s Ron Paul:
News Shocker: Ron Paul biggest GOP fundraiser last quarter
Well, it’s official, ladies and gentlemen. Believe it or not, Rep. Ron Paul, the 72-year-old Texan who hardly ever gets mentioned in Republican political news and the one-time libertarian who always gets the least time on TV debates if he isn’t barred completely, was, in fact, the most successful Republican fundraiser in the last three months of 2007.
By a Texas mile.
By the thousands Paul’s fervent followers donated $19.95 million to the “Ron Paul Revolution.” He spent $17.75 million and at year’s end had $7.8 million cash on hand, making him the only Republican candidate to increase his fundraising totals in every quarter of 2007. According to his website, Paul’s Paulunteers have contributed another $4.1 million this month to fuel the strict constitutionalist’s travels and advertising campaign.
There’s a couple caveats here. I don’t know how much came from a few big donors of the George Soros/Warren Beatty variety. And I don’t agree with a lot of what’s on Paul’s platform.
But there’s certainly some good things about Paul too. He supports the culture of life. And he’s the only candidate who supports going back on the gold standard, something that could go a long way to making our currency strong again.
It’s a tough choice. And I’d be curious to hear the thoughts of others about this.
