    Goddam shame when a loser can get wealthy from our election process

    'Course as long as Republicans can get elected by saying they support the working class...........................Grits ain't gravy, Eggs ain't poultry, And Mona Lisa was a man

    Every penny of that money will go to the cause of furthering Liberty, a concept that seems quite foreign to wingnuts on BOTH extremes. Ron Paul has waged a one man war for 30 years fighting for the cause of the Constitution; first, foremost and for ALL of us, and it has NOT made him wealthy. The ONLY reason he's worth $5 mil is because ALL of his investments have been in gold and silver over the last 30 years.

    The only loser I see is the OP...

    You do realize that that money doesn't go to Ron Paul personally, right?

    A many a dollar which was donated for political purposes ended up in the personal accounts of politicians. Tell me something.....how can it be thoroughly controlled

    It's kinda like the $80 million or so which came up missing from a Halliburton account in Iraq. Even after testimony from individuals who saw filled plastic trash bags being moved from a pay location they never proved any wrong doing. 'Course that's like the young lady who was repeatedly raped and threatened by male employees of the same company.

    So it's OK to make wild, unfounded accusations against the only candidate that's ever RETURNED money to the Treasury while TOTALLY IGNORING the man's 40 year track record and financial statements.

    What purpose does this kind of blind character assassination serve?

    Are you really that big of a douche?

    He's likening campaign contributions to some event in Iraq with a defense contractor and some missing money.

    Why even bother responding?

    The mandate banning the use of campaign contributions for personal use only applies to candidates' primary campaign committee and their connected leadership political action committee. Any other political action committee can spend their donations on whatever they wish.

    Guess where it ends up

    PROVE your assertion, asswipe. Show us what Ron Paul did with the money left over from the 2008 campaign.

    I think you're just being your typical hack self here 'cuz you got nothin'!
