Ron Paul has surprised all the mainstream media by raising $5 million in campaign donations this past summer. He has the most passionate supporters of all the candidates, and is very popular online. Not only did he raise $5 million, he still has $5.3 million in the bank. So far since the start of the year he has raised over $8 million in campaign contributions which means he has raised more than candidates like John McCain and Mike Huckabee. He has called for an end to the war in Iraq saying it is an illegal war, and has called for an end to the war on drugs because it doesn’t work. It looks like his supporters are reaching in their pockets to back their words with their wallets. Republicans are still searching for the right candidate, and Ron Paul proves again he is still in the thick of it all.
