    This from a Google search of Military backing going to Ron Paul


    Article from Milwaukee Story:

    "The active duty military that make up Ron Paul's top donor list are attempting to send a signal to the American people that Ron Paul's foreign policy is the right choice."

    "In October Milwaukee Story published this article that broke down Romney's pledge to continue US Interventionist/first-strike foreign policy. that Foreign Policy white paper was an additional signal to Wall Street that Romney was a safe bet as an establishment candidate and could be trusted to pull from Washington and Wall Street establishments to fill his cabinet posts."



    A Commentor wrote:

    Ron Pau served in the Military and he wants peace and to stop the corruption by the special interest groups who profit from wars and restore our fourth and fifth amendment rights which were stripped from us because our foreign policies back fired.. Why is he viewed as extreme?

    Mitt Romney, the spoiled rich chicken hawk who never served is asking this country to sacrifice our chldren and our economy to feed these greedy bankers by going to another needless war while AmeriKa turns into a police state.

    This is what our corrupt Media has chosen for the people... four more years of status quo in Washington.

    A majority of middle market dealmakers think Mitt Romney would do the best job of reviving the U.S. economy.

    ACG New York asked dealmakers–which include private equity execs, attorneys, investment bankers, and lenders, etc. — which Republican candidate was best suited to help resurrect the flailing U.S. economy. More than half, or 51.1%, picked the former Bain Capital founder, while nearly 29% chose Newt Gingrich. A small group, 13.3%, picked John Huntsman, while a minute 3.3% went for Ron Paul.

    ACG then asked whether the Republican candidate or President Obama would do a better job of reviving the U.S. economy. Not surprisingly, more than two-thirds, or nearly 78%, picked the Republican candidate. Romney, who founded Bain Capital in 1984, is seen getting major support from Wall Street. Stephen Schwarzman, the Blackstone Group’s chairman and CEO, even hosted a fundraiser for Romney at his Park Avenue apartment.

    In December, ACG New York queried executives about their political views and hopes for 2012. ACG, a global association that represents middle market deal makers, received 128 responses.

    In a surprise, a majority, or 52.9%, of dealmakers said they would be willing to pay higher income taxes if it would revive the economy. But a solid minority, 47.1%, said they wouldn’t.

    How much of a tax increase is acceptable? Of the group in favor of higher taxes, 86.2% said that a 3% to 5% boost was acceptable, while 10.3% picked a 6% to 10% increase.

    The survey found that middle market execs aren’t overly optimistic about 2012. ACG asked dealmakers to predict whether the U.S. economy, at the end of 2012, would improve. Roughly half, or nearly 53%, think it will be the same while one third, or 29.8%, believe it will be “better.” A small group, 13.2%, thinks the economy will be worse, while 2.5% think it will be “much better.”

    Yep Riddler, Romney's subservience to the Neo Con interventionist plans for war, the Israeli Lobby on Foreign Policy and to the 'Corps are People' and other Lobby's is exactly why he's getting most of his money from a few, because that see that he is for the status quo.

    You've proved the point to the article that I quoted from. War means money for large corps, but it costs the masses their lives.


    So do you want to support the Status Quo that is pushing for war and only serves the few at the expense of the many ?

    The first list that I failed to label was actually the top contributors to Obama's campaign - as for the second article - it wasn't large corporations who were listed as believing Romney would be best for the economy but middle market private equity execs - and I highly doubt that in totality would be interested in war - given that war actually shrinks markets away from more profitable endeavors.

    your active duty military talk about partisan affiliation and make that much reportable financial contributions? icon_eek.gif


    I'm surprised only because all the military types I have known never did ANYTHING overtly political while they were actively serving. Not even a political lawnsign.

    Thanks for posting this interesting information.

    GO RON PAUL, end these damn wars and interference as well as siding with Israel and other countrys in wrong doing with our donations. All it does is bring about 'blowback' and continue the conflicts.
