Looks like Ron Paul's military donations are at least double all other Republicans combined!

Just found a thread pertaining to military contributions to the Ron Paul campaign. Looks like the good doctor is kicking the snot out of all the rest of the Republicans. Woohoo!!

Draw Attention to Funding of others

Now that Dr. Paul is on top, it would be a great time to show where they others get their money. Just in case more money gets thrown at them in a nick of time. We need to draw attention to it.

Should be in every ad

Official ads or unofficial ads

On that same forum Adam of RT

On that same forum Adam of RT America said he will be running a segment on this tonight.

wanted to show some military donation #s from the FEC site

here is Paul's contribution by employer on the FEC site. Of course, if one's contributions don't exceed $200 in a campaign year, they don't have to report their employer.

gathering this data might take a little while because as you can tell from the link, the way the person entered their employer (in this case the military) isn't the same way. Thus, you must look at multiple rows.

*****A QUICK SCAN shows the following (not as high as the person on ronpaulforums but again, this was a really quick scan)*****

Reassuring sign that the military is awake.

The military will refuse to follow Posse Comitatus should it ever be implemented. DHS, the American Police Force, and mercenaries will not refuse, since they have already been busy in the streets of America.

Ron Paul will waste no time in getting these people back home again and pronto.

Posse Comitatus is (or was) a good thing

From wikipedia:

The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits members of the Army and Air Force from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.

We have to devise a plan to use this against the

controlled radio hacks, who are manipulating people with the insane neoCON propaganda. Somebody, with good video talent, needs to make a video attacking the major players, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Levine, Bortz, and flip/flopping Beck. A good example. They always claim how they support the troops, but it's apparent they would rather not listen to who they would like to be their Commander in Chief. Instead, they would rather profit for selling the ideologies of the prior and current fascist presidents, who are in collusion with corporate power elites, who are assuming great wealth, while destroying the general welfare of the American working class. The American military aren't being killed or severely wounded to protect Americans freedom and liberty, as we continue to lose them, and the troops are recognizing this fact. Quoting the most decorated Marine in US history, General Smedley Butler, who received two congressional medals of honor, 'War is a Racket'. For those who think war is the answer, they should read General Butler's book, 'War is a Racket', as he will convince you, that war is just a racket for the greed of the power elite. The greatest enemy to the American people is the Federal Reserve who's policies enable reasons for wars, while destroying the value of the dollars people work for to provide for themselves and their families. Ron Paul is the candidate the American military supports, and the only candidate who truly follows the Constitution, and stands for all the citizens of America, not the false paradigms of the other candidates. They call him Dr No in Congress, because when the lobbyists or fellow members approach him with political ideological unconstitutional bills, his reply is a definite, NO!

Spread the word. Lets make it triple....

nt

How do...

....We get this to run Nationwide somehow?
Any News outlet? Someone's got to pick this up, no?

Can we try the e-mailing the usual suspects? CNN? Dylan Ratigan? Judge N?

Agreed

Without a big bank account it's next to impossible to get Dr. Paul's message out on mainstream media. I think that contributing to his cause is one course of action but I also think that word of mouth can seriously pay off. I've been posting R.P. 2012 stuff on my Facebook and letting all of my friends and family know what he's about. I was amazed at how many of my people are now spreading the R.P. word. I think that it is also important that we as military members sread the word around the troops... Vote Dr. Ron Paul for president in 2012!!!

as a soldier, your voice speaks louder than thunder.

my hat, is off to you sir.

Thinkin' the same thing

If they could run it tomorrow or even Tuesday, the moneybomb would get a big boost!

HOOAH!

And the Marines clean up your mess!

Just kidding, bro!

As Long As Our Government Allows them to Vote on Election Day

Ohhhh, I'm sorry..We lost the ballots..humm

Wow. If Lafayette's calculations are

even reasonably accurate, this is big news on several level. Most important it would show growing troop discontent with U.S. foreign policy -- and that among a demographic one would expect to be big boosters of it.

With data sources supplied this would be a big story to be widely published.

This is big news!

I'm not surprised, but it sure would make a great news story for the MSM.

Anyone else question the

Anyone else question the amount Obama received?

Do you think Obama's amount

is too high or too low?

I think it seems high
