Ron Paul gets more support from military than any other candidate
I visited Ron Paul's campaign website and saw something very interesting. I had already heard this on Bill Maher's show, but just to point out: Ron Paul has gotten greater financial contributions from people in the military than all the other remaining candidates, Republican and Democrat, combined. And yes, McCain is included in that total. I find that impressive, considering that I always thought the military, by and large, supported Iraq. I know there have been substanial pockets of dissent, like the interviews given out as well as Michael Moore's book of letters from those who'd served in Iraq and Afghanistan, but it's bigger than I'd thought, based on Paul's contributions.
