Army, Navy, Air Force all among top 10 Ron Paul contributors

The fact is that the Army, Navy and Air Force are all among the top 10 contributors for Ron Paul. Look yourself and compare these to the investment banks that support the other candidates, Republican and Democrat alike. Also notice the conspicuous lack of banks among Paul's contributors. Now whose interests do you think he is fighting for?

Banks and Oil (gee, why the bailouts?) VS:

High-tech, military and the genius behind American Free Markets: Henry Ford.

AWESOME!

Hey...

I'm all about proving the other bastards are worthless. But, can I point out that...

The companies themselves are not donating the money. The money comes from individual employees and is bundled together in a lump sum by the company and given to the candidate.

I will go out on a limb to say I doubt Goldman Sachs tried to raise money from their employees for Ron Paul.

And the only reason I'm saying all this is because there are a lot of new people entering the realm of politics right now. Some people may not know how this money is gathered. It would be a shame for someone to say that Goldman Sachs donated so much money because the CEO may be for the CFR; when in actuality, their employees raised the money.

I just don't want anyone to say something that might end up discrediting him/her as a source of information.

See the others are getting their money directly from CFR people. That needs to be distributed far and wide and made very clear.
