Who do the troops support?

Argh. I promised myself I was going to ignore any Ron Paul[Wiki] related news here, 'cause... well... we don't change each other's minds in the comments (although Obama and Hillary are doin' their level headed best to change my mind about him...). However, this was too interesting to support: Q4 FEC Reports: Ron Paul Receives More Military Donations Than All Other Republicans Combined:

Total military donations nearly as much as the total of all other remaining candidates - Republican and Democrat

Still don't like the guy, but I'm seeing a good case made that he's the lesser of the evils.

He's won me over. Sure, he's out there a ways, but I think it's a good direction to strive for and Congress will be a balancing force towards reality. If it breaks the Republican/Democrat domination a little, it'll be a great thing. I'm using the Who would I want to have at a "Chia Lunch(tm)" criteria. Which under those criteria I'd also want to chat with Jimmy Carter and if "W" or Al Gore showed up I'd probably thwack them.
