I find it illuminating that the top individual donors of Ron Paul come from the US military. Isn't he, according to the current Republican belief system, anti-military and unpatriotic? Since he doesn't "support the troops" by being completely opposed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, why do the troops support him? I see the Hon. Coburn has received no donations from the US military, according to this website.

SOURCE

It looks to me like the "troops" know exactly who truly supports them...and it ain't rest of the GOP or Democrats.

It is also illuminating to see that there is an option to see either the "top 20" or "top 100" donors for the Hon. Coburn. Mr Paul's list is quite short by comparison. Of equal amusement, most of the Hon. Coburn's donations seem to come from various PACs and not from individuals. There are 20 contributors listed under Mr Paul...of that 20, only 6 come from PACs. The Hon. Coburn had 69 PACs out of 99 listed as contributors... Yes, I took the time to count.

I find it quite amusing that the rank and file Republicans have such disdain for Ron Paul. Is it from truly examining what he stands for and disagreeing, or is it because Limbaugh and company direct them to do so? In other words, is this disdain for the "beloved" Rep. Paul a child of critical thinking or is it simply the "ditto head zombie" syndrome?

feedtrolls Allen Owen has recovered from the exertion of summing the sources of contributions to Rep Ron Paul as over against Sen Tom Coburn; thanx indeed for the update of whatever value. Allen recovered sufficiently to deliver a rant deploring the disdain of certain un-identified Republicans for Mr Paul's politics implying such disdain arises from, "'ditto head zombie' syndrome"; revealing Allen's ignorance of the meaning of, "ditto head", "zombie", and "syndrome", a three-fur. wink

Hijack Please stay on topic. Rep. Paul and his political contributions are not the topic of this thread. Thank you for everyone's immediate cooperation.

Another pictures of the elephant! Anyone else think it looks a bit like the Senator from Oklahoma, or are my eyes blurring over:

LOL

"Disclaimer Guy's" voice is electronically sped up once said disclaimer is recorded at his normal pace.

I don't know about him, but I have seen perform live people who can talk that fast doing ads and just demonstrations. So they are out there, now whether they can read that fast aloud or just deliver prepared script, I don't know.

At any rate, there are easier ways to filibuster.

I don't understand anything of the sort, much less anything else you post, Harvey3, red, blue or any other color.

Quit trying to bait me and add something of substance, ok? It just won't work.
