Guess which group of Amurca-hatin' lefties has given the most money to Ron Paul? Congressman Ron Paul has defined his Republican presidential candidacy with a staunchly critical stance of the Iraq war, saying during the June 5 debate in New Hampshire, for example, that it was a "mistake to go and a mistake to stay."
Paul has often reiterated his views that US security has been worsened by its military presence in Iraq, and that Bush's pre-emptive war doctrine represented one of his administration's greatest moral failings.
One might think such criticism of the war and the Commander-in-Chief's leadership would make Paul a pariah to the military community, however, the latest figures indicate the antiwar Republican is receiving more donations from employees of the US military than any other Republican candidate. There's most likely still no way Ron Paul will get the nomination, but in an age in which Presidential candidates have to suck up to the religious right to be taken seriously as "Real conservatives" and give blind support to Bush's policies to be seen as strong on the antiterror front, Ron Paul is at least honest enough tos ay what he really thinks. Unfortunately, that doesn't sit well with the powers that be.
