Ron Paul supporters march

What is the biggest issue that causes voters to rethink Ron Paul? You got it! His foreign policy. But the irony of this stumbling block for 2012 voters, is the very thing that causes the active and inactive military men and women to support the 11-term congressman, and they proved it in a big way by marching for Ron Paul in Washington D.C. on Monday.

The military loves Ron Paul and they put their money where their mouth is by supporting him financially. In fact, the military support him with their income more than all the other candidates combined. On Monday, hundreds of veterans, active duty troops, and dedicated Ron Paul supporters marched from the Washington Monument to the White House in a show of solidarity.

Can you imagine how much money it cost some of them just to march in D.C.? Think about it...they came from around the country to put their boots on the ground for freedom, for the message of Ron Paul. Plane tickets, hotel rooms, meals -- just like other typical Dr. Paul supporters, they are willing to take their money, time, and talents in any way possible to show their support and do all they can to get their only choice for president in the White House.

Why did they do it? They support Dr. Paul's views to end the careless wars, they believe he is right that "defense spending" should be on our own shores defending our borders, rather than butting into issues in other countries, defending their borders, and fighting their wars for them with money printed out of thin air.

Ron Paul doesn't believe in policing the world, starting unconstitutional wars -- he believes in peace first, war last. Many Ron Paul supporters believe that "President Paul" is the only candidate who promises "real" change and who is the only authentic one who can restore America's economy and bring the troops home, and he has a voting record to prove it.

What will happen if Ron Paul doesn't win the Republican nomination? His supporters say simply there is no other choice and they will flat out just write him in.
