Ron Paul, Long Shot No More
by Hugo Mann USA Daily November 6, 2007
Throw the polls out the window, Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul, made fund raising history today, raising more money online than any candidate in the history of presidential fund raising.
Ron Paul has raised 3.5 million from over 22,000 donors with just under 4 hours left in the day. Paul has also passed Mitt Romney’s one day haul of 3.1 million dollars in a single day fund raising effort, making it the largest one day fund raising effort among all Republicans this campaign.
The grass roots one day fund raising effort may have helped put Paul in the driver’s seat in the GOP presidential nomination contest. There is a chance that Paul may end up with the most cash in hand at the end of the quarter.
Paul’s campaign consistently draws large crowds and is raising more money than most of the other candidates. Paul clearly is gaining momentum and is now only considered a long shot to win the nomination by media outlets that believe their own polls.
Having by passed media censorship via the internet, Ron Paul’s message appears to be resonating across America.
Paul voted against the Iraq war and advocates a non interventionist foreign policy. He promises to withdraw troops from Iraq immediately and wants to prevent a war with Iran and a new Cold War with Russia.
Paul also wants to eliminate federal income taxes and reform the monetary system by authorizing competing currencies backed by gold and silver. Paul also voted against the Patriot Act and promises to restore the Bill of Rights.
Paul has also spoken out against attempts to erase U.S. borders and form a North American Union.
