    The rest of the field only WISHES they had enough regular joe supporters that actually gave a rat's ass enough to join together to do something like this.


    I think it exemplifies America's true meaning.

    Anyone care to place a wager on tomorrow's fundraising total?

    I'm saying nothing less than 6.5 million, but i wouldn't at all be surprised if it tops 10.

    There's double the amount of pledges this time, so automatically that places the estimate at around 9 million.

    VIVA LA REVOLUCION Kathianne! I love ya!

    Really. Can you imagine that kind of spontaneous support going toward... Fred Thompson?

    I can't even imagine a spontaneous FART going toward Fred Thompson.

    No other candidates are offering any new ideas except Ron. The fact that so many people have come together to help spread those ideas, is a testament to the life that actually still exists in this country. And to think, I thought this country was all but gone less than a year ago.

    Kathianne, thanks for the thread. I'll use this to update the fundraising total for the day.

    So far, 2 MILLION.

    I respect Ron Paul, I believe most of what Ron Paul says, Ron Paul would be the best thing to happen to America since I don't know when, hell, I may even vote for Ron Paul.

    But you don't actually think Ron Paul will be more than a blip on the radar screen of American politics do you?

    I do like the blimp/hot air analogy.
    I have a quick question for Paul supporters. He advocates less government.
    If that were to come to pass, who picks up the slack?
    Less government would mean fewer agency/dept./bureau workers would mean less oversight of and enforcement of regulations affecting manufacturing/mining/lumbering/pharmaceuticals/memorials/parks/environment/veterans care/SS/Medicare/Caid, etc., would mean fewer grants/endowments/loans/bail outs/matching funds would mean less infrastructure maintenance/construction would mean less research into energy sources and medical break throughs, and on and on.
    So who picks up the tab? The States? I already pay enough state sales tax and income tax and local taxes, thanks just the same.

    Yeah, I do. Why shouldn't I? Because George Snuffaluffapuss says he won't? Because the US media is severely underreporting his actual support nationwide?

    After the primaries are over, and the PEOPLE have all spoken, then we can start talking about who's going to be a mainstay, and who's going to be a radar blip.

    If there's a huge snow storm on the day of the Iowa caucus, just for instance, you do realize that many people will stay home...but you also realize that probably not ONE Ron Paul supporter will miss the ballot, right?

    This is just a hypothetical situation to ponder. I'm not saying it will take 'acts of god' to help RP's chances, but they certainly wouldn't hurt.

    The only way you could think that he has no chance is if you take the scientific polls at their face value. And you probably have to realize how much of a potential RP voter demographic gets left out of those polls, based on how they're conducted, right?

    Otherwise, he wins out against the opposition everytime.

    Have some faith, brother!

    All you really just did was state your liberal position...quite ignorantly, I might add. You just argued FOR liberal government, and then ended by complaining about all the taxes you pay.

    And like the government is doing a good job of regulating the pharmaceutical industry ANYWAY, much less the entitlement programs.
