Ron Paul Sets Online Fundraising Record with $4.2 Million in One Day

WASHINGTON ó Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, fueled by an extraordinary Internet fundraising effort, hauled in more than $4.2 million in nearly 24 hours on Monday.

Paul, the Texas congressman with a libertarian tilt and an out-of-Iraq pitch, entered heady fundraising territory with a surge of Web-based giving tied to the commemoration of Guy Fawkes Day.

Fawkes was a British mercenary who failed in his attempt to kill King James I on Nov. 5, 1605. He also was the model for the protagonist in the movie "V for Vendetta." Paul backers motivated donors on the Internet with mashed-up clips of the film on the online video site YouTube as well as the Guy Fawkes Day refrain: "Remember, remember the 5th of November."

Well now if Ron does not get elected he will have plenty of money left to retire on I watched V for Vendetta and there was very strange implications in that movie Good post SBL

To date, Ron Paul has received more donations from members of of the U.S. Armed Services than any other candidate. (of course, that makes up a very small percentage of the complete totals of contributions he has received.)

Go figure.

I'll take this one. Ok, the stat LateNight posted namin Ron Paul the darlin of the military should be of concern to those of you who are still on the fence about Dr. Paul because of his plan to pull our forces from Iraq. Well, if he has the support of the majority of our troops, the actual people doin the fightin, shouldnt that be good enough for you? So then, what possible objection could any of you have to electin Paul for president? Just what is it precisely that you take issue with in regards to the good doctor's campaign platform?

Joe, since you've already admitted that Paul would make the best president on the other thread and dodged my question as to whether that admission means Paul can count on your vote, I'll ask ya again. What say ya?

Ron Paul Wins Straw Vote in New York

Ron Paul Wins! Thatís the headline today after the first New York State Republican Straw Poll. Clearly, after raking in a record amount of money the other day, Mr. Paul is on a roll. He seems to have out-organized his fellow Republicans ó on Rudolph W. Giulianiís home turf.

The New York State straw poll was conducted Tuesday at the Metropolitan Republican Club in New York City.

How 'bout them apples !

I realize those 'Straw' polls don't mean a heck of a lot. But I believe he's won a few of them.

Converted me

I was a hard core neocon republican who voted Bush all the way....

Never thought I would be converted to the Ron Paul ranks but when you really study the issues, you will be surprised how much sense the platform really makes. Maybe it was all the econ classes I took in school?

Also, I'm not a fringe lunatic as I work for a Fortune 500 company here in Shreveport as a marketing analyst. I'm a degreed working parent of two!

Always glad to hear from another Ron Paul supporter out there .

Let me go ahead and guess what some of the other replies to this post might be

"working for a fortune 500 company doesn't exempt you from being 'lunatic fringe' and being Educated doesn't exempt you from being ignorant."

LOL and although that may be true. On this topic, we are in agreement.

And welcome to Shreveport.com !

When you use such catch phrases as "neocon republican" you do sound like a fringe lunatic I voted for Bush and do not consider myself a neocon or a Libertarian RP has some good ideas when it comes to taxes and other things pertaining to the economy but he looks like a dork ! I have yet to decide on who I will vote for other than it will not be a democRAT !! I could see how RP supporters would scare off someone that might be considering RP

Well if you are scared of change, then perhaps you should vote with the rest of the "sheeple" and choose Romney or why not Hillary?
