Paul’s big-money friends tend come from Texas, the state that Paul calls home.

Ron Paul’s fund-raising base is as unconventional as his candidacy.
Like his presidential rivals, he taps his home state of Texas for a good portion of his cash. But for the most part, he gets his contributions from locales that are off the beaten fund-raising path.
That’s the beauty of his small-dollar funders, who are spread across the nation but managed to deliver $16.1 million to Paul so far this cycle. Forget about fancy New York City events for the Texas congressman — his campaign is fueled by online ‘moneybombs’ and runs on Internet contributions. It’s rooted in a mindset, rather than a metro area.
Paul’s big-money friends tend come from Texas, the state that Paul calls home. Houston, Dallas and Austin top the hopeful’s overall list of most lucrative ZIP codes, along with a clutch of geographies that host America’s high-tech industry.
Who'd thunk it? A Genteel TX Country Doctor has murderous paper shufflers at the FED. Reserve going apoplectic!

I'm going to be wildly optimistic and say that all these speaking engagements for the Bernanck are a response to the Ron Paul Revolution.
