The Ron Paul Revolution Gathers Steam

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul (TX) reported an astonishing $5.1 million in campaign contributions for the quarter.  The fundraising number is impressive because it puts him up with the top tier candidates.  Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, and John McCain are considered the frontrunners, but Ron Paul is now knocking on the door of the Republican nomination.

 

Ron Paul is an interesting candidate and far different from the other phonies in the field.  Paul actually has an opinion and is not afraid to express it.  He is the only anti-war GOP candidate in the race.  Ron Paul is pro-life (unlike Romney and Giuliani), against illegal immigration (unlike McCain and Giuliani), and advocates for sharply lower taxes.  He wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service and many other federal agencies.  He truly believes in less government, one of the long-forgotten hallmarks of conservatism..

 

Ron Paul is a physician by trade, having delivered over 4,000 babies in his lifetime.  He was drafted into the military and served in the Air Force as a flight surgeon in the mid 1960's.  He later completed his residency in Pittsburgh while enlisted in the National Guard.  After many years as an obstetrician, Dr. Paul entered politics and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976.  He is currently in his 10th term representing Texas's 14th district.

 

The mainstream media has largely ignored Ron Paul, choosing to concentrate their efforts on frauds like Rudolph Giuliani, Mitt Romney, and John McCain.  However, now that Paul has raised enough money to compete, the media will have no choice but to pay attention.

 

Ron Paul is still an extreme long shot to win the Republican nomination, but he is definitely going to make it interesting.
