Unexpected praise for Ron Paul and his enthusiastic supporters from none other than Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama all recently had their private, personal passport information accessed illegally. They also all support the implementation of the Real ID (read my previous post that documents their verbal and/or Congressional support of Real ID). I guess they like having their privacy breached so much that they want to make sure all of us can experience it.
It’s sad (and funny) but true — there is more honesty in the satirical humor of The Onion than in the corporate “mainstream” media:

If the number of meetup group supporters is any indication of the voice of the people, Ron Paul has all the candidates beat by a long shot.
Click here and scroll down for a quick view of each presidential candidates meetup group totals. Notice that Ron Paul has over 73,000 more meetup.com members than the next highest, Barack Obama who has around 5,600. Also take note of the activity level of the members and the fact that Ron Paul has members in 24 different countries.
Twelve former army captains wrote a letter yesterday calling for the U.S. to leave Iraq. They described what they saw in Iraq as “widespread corruption and sectarian division,” and explained that conditions on the ground were “deplorable.”
The army captains proclaimed that “the U.S. military has been trying in vain to hold the country together,” and noted that there are not enough troops to “meet the professed goals.”
The captains then concluded the letter with this recommendation:
“There is one way we might be able to succeed in Iraq. To continue an operation of this intensity and duration, we would have to abandon our volunteer military for compulsory service. Short of that, our best option is to leave Iraq immediately. A scaled withdrawal will not prevent a civil war, and it will spend more blood and treasure on a losing proposition.”
It should come as little surprise then that the only Republican candidate that is getting a significant amount of financial support from the troops is Ron Paul, the anti-war candidate. Recent numbers show that Ron Paul has received more campaign contributions from individuals employed by the military than any other Republican candidate, by a wide margin.
Its also interesting that Hillary Clinton is receiving the majority of the contributions from people employed by defense companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop-Grumman, Raytheon and General Dynamics—companies who will profit from continued war. Are they betting on the fact that Hillary will keep us in Iraq?
