Not only has Congressman Ron Paul’s “Internet only” phenomenon crossed into impressive straw poll showings, but real dollars are being generated as well. After passing John McCain for cash on hand last quarter, the campaign has just reached a similarly impressive milestone. A call for $500k in online donations for the last week of the quarter resulted in contributions totaling over $1 million, meaning Paul has raised close to $3 million in the 3rd quarter. Paul’s libertarian message of eliminating the income tax, ending the wars in Iraq and on drugs, and increasing personal freedoms seems to keep spreading. The Ron Paul snowball is gaining momentum.
