If Ron Paul would help out big business so much and give them free reign to takeover the world as so many democrats seem to think, then why doesn't big business donate to him?


Could it be that a free market would not benefit big business as much as a government controlled one?

Oh man you got me! I saw the subject line of your post and I was ready to fire back. It now appears it was a rhetorical question. Good show!

How about this?

A recent independent analysis of candidates’ campaign contributions reveals an interesting disparity between the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign and frontrunner Mitt Romney’s campaign. Romney’s top supporters appear to be made up of big banks while, unsurprisingly, Paul’s top contributors were men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. [...]

According to the analysis, the top three organizations that employ Romney’s supporters are Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group, and Morgan Stanley

(And look how much money they give him.  And that's just through their company PAC.  That doesn't count other ways they might support him.)
