FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Two Billboards on I-44 Highlight Troops Support for Ron Paul
One sign which is viewed by westbound drivers leaving Sullivan, MO reads “Our Troops Support Paul.” The sign uses a bargraph to show that Ron Paul is apparently the US Military’s choice for president. He receives more in donations from active troops than Obama and more than all of the other GOP candidates put together. In fact, www.supportthemnow.com, the website featured on the sign, links to OpenSecrets.org to show that the US Army, the US Air Force and the US Navy were the top three contributors to Ron Paul’s campaign during the 3rd quarter of 2011.
The other billboard, viewed by eastbound drivers just passing Leasburg, features the official campaign website: www.ronpaul2012.com where Ron Paul's "Restore America Plan" is outlined. This plan would balance the US federal budget by 2015, during the first three years of Paul's presidency, by cutting five federal departments and $1 trillion of spending--mostly US spending abroad. The plan would not cut Social Security or Medicare.
A recent Bloomberg poll shows Ron Paul statistically tied for first place in Iowa. Ron Paul won the NFRA straw poll a few weeks ago in the first-to-vote state of Iowa.
