thoughts?

That's crazy that RP's top 3 contributors were military...and RP is strongly against having our military around the world.

Our military has it right.

As for Obama...no surprise there...none whatsoever.

No, he didn't.

Yeah man, Ron Paul ran as a Republican.
And I am not surprised at all that Ron Paul had the support of the military.....because they know that he would've gotten the troops the heck out of these 2 pointless quagmires we are involved in!

Obama on the other hand, not surprising at all....he's a corporate wh*re just like the rest of them.

That's a great point you make there!
They're both a couple of corporate puppets, it would've been a win-win for special interests either way.

Yeah..this was widely reported during the elections. Both sides were bashing each other on the issue.

This says quite a bit about our political parties..and who is on the take.

Crooked....

i was going to but i didn't have enough time thank you for posting
... i thought obama would be the one to put up first then ron paul then mccain ... that's just my opinion thanks again!

it's still a little unsettling, even though McCain got up to around $400,000 from these companies ... obama's list doesn't even go down that far ... i'm not trying to push mccain or ron paul or obama ... just trying to raise some flags

How is that an opinion?
Not to split hairs here, but it is a known FACT that he was running for the Republican nomination.

all these contributor amounts show is that big corps know that the smart way to ensure favorable treatment is to donate to anyone who might win.
