"Paul Rivals Clinton, Raising Almost $20 Million for Campaign"

Here's an article from Bloomberg.com:

"Paul Rivals Clinton, Raising Almost $20 Million for Campaign

By Kristin Jensen

Jan. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Presidential candidate Ron Paul raised almost $20 million for his campaign in the last three months, potentially outpacing every one of his Republican rivals and putting his fundraising in league with Hillary Clinton's.

Paul, a U.S. representative from Texas, raised at least $19.5 million, according to a statement posted on his Web site. His campaign said today that he originally aimed to raise $12 million in the fourth quarter of 2007.

The take puts Paul on par with the top fundraisers in the Democratic Party, who outpaced Republicans last year. The campaign of New York Senator Clinton yesterday said she raised more than $100 million for the year, meaning she brought in at least $20 million in the fourth quarter.

Paul has drawn supporters with his libertarian message and his opposition to the war in Iraq, spurring a burst of donations on the Internet, the source of about 80 percent of the contributions last quarter, according to Paul spokesman Jesse Benton. In the three months through September, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani brought in the most contributions among Republicans, for a total of $11.5 million.

Presidential campaigns don't have to report fundraising figures until the end of January, though many give hints about their totals earlier than that. Arizona Senator John McCain, who's seeking the Republican presidential nomination, yesterday told reporters in New Hampshire that December was his best fundraising month since July. He gave no further details.

Fox excludes Ron Paul from their forum

First off, Happy New Year, everybody!

Here's an article that details Ron Paul's exclusion from a Fox Forum that will be held just before the New Hampshire Primaries.

"Fox, meanwhile, has invited five GOP candidates to a forum with Chris Wallace scheduled for its mobile studio in New Hampshire on Sunday. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee received invites, leaving Paul of Texas and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California on the sidelines"

The funny thing is that Ron Paul meets all three of the criteria that Fox used as reasons to exclude him from the forum. Ron's response to news of this exclusion was classic:

“They are scared of me and don’t want my message to get out, but it will,” Paul said in an interview at a diner here. “They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative.”

Here is a great music video that is not captioned but is very visually appealing. It relates perfectly to the above news, as it takes a hard look at the biasness of the mainstream media.



Iowa's caucus process will take place Thursday night, January 3rd. For the first time ever, I am excited about a primary in a state hundreds of miles away from me! The general consensus amongst Ron Paul supporters is that finishing third is a win in our book, and that we'll shock the world if we finish second. I think it'll go Romney, Paul, Huckabee, Thompson, McCain, Giuliani, Hunter, but I'm an optimist.
