Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Military Contributions Supports Ron Paul

Posted by nytexan on July 17, 2007

It’s interesting that the GOP continues to tell us that the withdrawal from Iraq is a slap in the face of the troops. Surprise the military isn’t contributing to the hawks.

In the recent 2nd Quarter report, Ron Paul, the staunchly anti-war GOP candidate is getting the most contributions from employees of the military. Spin that Bush.

H/T to The Spin Factor for digging through the reports to pull out this jewel.
