Really, it's news that only political junkies pay attention to. But it's still staggering.
The Times reported Wednesday that "Rep. Ron Paul raised more than $8 million for his presidential campaign in the last three months" from 100,000 individual donors.
And that's not all. "Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he raised more than $17 million from 22,000 donors."
Wait, there's more. Though he didn't announce a total, "a source close to the Mitt Romney campaign said the former Massachusetts governor's third-quarter fundraising take was expected to be more than $14 million."
Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul is still raising big amounts of cash online.
Just this past week, the campaign raised more than $1 million through the use of “moneybombs” or one-day cash grabs.
The Sept. 17 moneybomb corresponded with the 224th anniversary of the creation of the United States Constitution.
I wish I knew how to embed videos here... My apologies... but this video lists problems in each of the other candidates and their claims to be "small government." It is not all-inclusive, and I would bet the video that was all inclusive would be more than a couple of hours long, but... I hope it's things like this that make people think twice about TEA Party sweetheart Michelle Bachmann, "Slick" Mitt Romney and J.R. "Dick" Perry.
