Service Personnel Prefer Ron Paul
by

Rep. Ron Paul has raised more than his share of controversy in Republican ranks by advocating an end to promiscuous intervention and war-making.  While it is hard to know what service personnel generally think, Rep. Paul is winning the money-raising race among those in the military. 

Observes Timothy Egan:

Representative Ron Paul, the congressman who favors the most minimalist American combat role of any major presidential candidate and who said all of the above quotes, has more financial support from active duty members of the service than any other politician.

As of the last reporting date, at the end of September, Paul leads all candidates by far in donations from service members. This trend has been in place since 2008, when Paul ran for president with a similar stance: calling nonsense at hawk squawk from both parties.

This year, Paul has 10 times the individual donations – totaling $113,739 – from the military as does Mitt Romney. And he has a hundred times more than Newt Gingrich, who sat out the Vietnam War with college deferments and now promises he would strike foes at the slightest provocation.

Actually, this should surprise no one.  Service personnel may argue about policy like anyone else.  But most important for anyone who could end up in harm’s way is to have a president who takes their potential sacrifice seriously and does not view them as just another campaign prop in the next election.
