    • Fed Statement Stretches "Considerable" Considerably
      Apparently Bill Clinton, the man who helped us ponder what the meaning of "is" is, now writes statements for the Federal Reserve. With the economic statistics apparently painting a rosy economic picture (In my opinion: ignoring the more numerous data points evidencing the opposite), I feel the majority of observers believed that the Fed would final […]
    • Black Gold Loses Glitter
      The stunning 40% drop in the price of oil over the past few months has scrambled global economic forecasts, changed the geo-political landscape, and has severely pressured many energy sector investments. Economists are scratching their heads to determine if the drop is good or bad for the economy or whether cheap oil will add to or decrease unemployment, or […]
    • Data Driven or Driven Data
      There can be little doubt that data releases rather than experience or intuition are driving the economic conversation. This is perhaps a function of the disconnection that many people feel about an economy that they no longer understand. Rather than trusting their own eyes or their own gut to form an opinion, it's much easier to grab a set of convenien […]
    • Fed Yearns for Higher Inflation to Disguise Asset Bubbles
      This morning a contributed article by Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, and author of The Real Crash - America's Coming Bankruptcy, ran in the Washington Times. The piece sheds important light on how the Federal Reserve's attitude regarding sub 2% inflation has changed significantly over the years. He makes the case that the Fed's con […]
    • The Clock is Ticking in Switzerland
      For most of my career in international investing, I had always placed a great deal of faith in Switzerland's financial markets. In recent years, however, as the Swiss government has sought to hitch its wagon to the flailing euro currency and kowtow increasingly to U.S.-based financial requirements, this faith has been shaken. But this week (November 30t […]

The Military Loves Ron Paul, The Proof is in the Pudding

The candidates’ second quarter donation reports are in, and once again Ron Paul is dominating the rest of the field in donations from active military members, just like he did in 2008.  In fact, Ron Paul got more money in donations from the military than ALL other candidates combined, including Obama!

Paul raised over $33K from the military, whereas the closest GOP contender, Herman Cain, raised just over $7K.  Obama, the titan fundraiser that he is, only raised about $20K.

These numbers tell a lot about what the military feels should be a proper foreign policy.  They are tired of being forced to police the world and nation build in countries that hate us.  They see first hand how our involvement around the world causes blowback.  They just want to come home safe and alive to their families.  Thus, they are speaking directly with their money by donating to Ron Paul.

If any neo-con tells you that they think Ron Paul is weak on defense or is anti-military, this donation report completely defies their argument.  If they think you’re making this stuff up, please direct them to this page.  You can’t argue with cold hard numbers!

It’s time to change the status quo and return to a humble foreign policy espoused by our founding fathers.  Thomas Jefferson stated that America’s stance should be “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.”  Ron Paul is the only candidate who’s consistently preached this philosophy and as president he will have the conviction to follow it.
