This is going to happen people! Ron Paul for President!

Nov. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Ron Paul, the U.S. presidential candidate who says he'll shrink government the most, is attracting more campaign donations than any of his Republican rivals from both U.S. government workers and employees of the biggest federal contractors.

I've been laying it on THICK in my blog and on FB ever since some my fellow Republicans in a particular group I'm in called me a "Paultard" last night during the debates.

It's funny, the only thing they don't like about Paul is his "foreign policy", they actually believe that going over and killing and occupying is how you bring about peace and they don't like his "legalization" of drugs and prostitution, because they have never actually read or listened to Paul, they've just regurgitated the crap they hear from talking heads and they think he's going to get rid of Social Security and leave old people without a means to live...because, again, they have not bothered to read or listen to a word he says, just parrot the media.

But they are "well informed", don't you know.

So, they want to act like asses, I will treat them as such. In the meantime, the benefit is, I'm getting others to actually sit back and think. I've already converted two people within minutes of posting on my site. And I will keep at it because I'm about sick to death of hearing how "great" Perry is. Please. Rick "give them education and health care...hell, give 'em some cake, too. We can't turn our back on the illegal immigrants" Perry.

Funny because these are the people who b**ch the loudest about illegal immigration.

I wonder it they would be, if they realized he would layoff Hundreds of thousands of them if elected, but then again some people never think it will be them that gets hit. Repubs have been backing those that do not have their best interests at heart for many years now, but there is no accounting for stupid people and their actions

Well this unionized stateworker donated to the Ron Paul campaign. I understand the need for a smaller government, including the workforce. Sometimes the good of the country trumps anything else.
