    Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound - Unknown

    Paul has a loyal following and they have shown they are more than willing to put their money where his mouth is in the past .......... that and perhaps they like his philosophy when comes to how and where and why we should use our military force.

    Me too...judging by the fact that he could give two shats about it.

    Because the entire dollar amount only adds up to $80,000, which when you consider the scope of Presidential campaigns, is pretty insignificant. And when you consider that the armed forces consists of 1.5 million people, that comes to about 5 cents each.......................

    Ron Paul's take at $36,000 is about 2 cents each............

    The percentage of Blacks in the military is more around three times that of the total population. Blacks will mindlessly support O Blah Blah regardless of military affiliation.

    Correct....but look beyond dollar amount. This is actual members.

    ..... doesn't this mean of those in the military that feel strongly about donating....they are doing so for a particular candidate. And looking at the numbers it's by a 2 to 1 ratio over ALL other Republicans.

    This is confusing based on his F.P. stances compared with the rest.

    Not really. It's like Ronulans touting all of his straw poll wins every single election cycle.

    It's hyped up propaganda from the Paul camp that in the end signifies nothing.

    Kinda like the Ronulans that like to trot out the Ron paul and Ronald Reagan pic to try and prove some kind of link between the two.

    I'd rather see vote totals and polls than donations.

    If you read the articles, this poll includes people who listed one of the
    5 branches as their employer....not just those who are enlisted and active.
    So this also includes civilians who are employed by the military too.

    Also this could be skewed by the low sample size of the population polled
    in relation to all military personnel, and other factors like the region polled?
    Did they poll across all locations or just the DC area?

    I don't put a lot of faith in this being a true and correct picture.
