How Far Does $1.09 Go Towards Office Supplies? Ask Ron Paul

A big part of Ron Paul’s Libertarian-informed message is fiscal conservatism. And he has the campaign records to prove it.

ProPublica surveyed the campaign finance filings of the Texas congressman running for the GOP presidential nomination, and found that Paul’s campaign cataloged practically every petty cash expenditure – even though candidates don’t need to write down individual expenditures totaling less than $200.

Pro Publica notes:

Every bank fee, every 22 cents at a FedEx, every $1 toll on the Florida turnpike, every $5.09 pit stop at any Starbucks anywhere, every doughnut from Dunkin' Donuts and Dough Nutz — it's all right there, itemized in the Paul campaign's copious expenditure reports. In 160 instances so far, the campaign has reported purchases costing a single dollar or less.

This comes in contrast to reports from the other GOP primary contenders...

As if I need to be reminded

I am though, everyday as to why I love this man. Today it's his accounting for every penny.. Just what you'd expect of someone who was truly fiscally responsible and yesterday it was his humbleness when told " Dr.Paul, you're treated like a rock star" and his answer? "That embarrasses me."

You can call it blind hero worship if you want to but I like to call it the truth..
I firmly believe I'll probably never get a more all-around deserving person to back for the cause of Liberty than this man.

Many will follow but none quite like this guy.

This will be the next Fox News headline once it is revealed that he could actually win a brokered convention.

Honesty and integrity...

...is what Dr.Paul's life has been all along! It's a no wonder that he should place people in his campaign that carry the same principles as he does! Kudos to them all!

Well said

Actually I used the word integrity as one of hashtags when I was posting this on Twitter a few hours ago:

As someone that manages a The UPS Store...

I smiled when I saw that Dr. Paul's campaign was doing business with a store in Ankeny. I would've fallen over on myself had I saw my own store on one of those.

Now this, is strangely

Now this, is strangely interesting...

This article could inspire people to donate to next Money Bomb

Thanks for a bump Crickett.

I found this article very uplifting.
The campaign knows how hard it is to donate in this economy -- some people donate 'their lunch money'...many students unemployed etc.
