A Peek At Some Ron Paul Donors

The WSJ had a great article on some of the professions listed for some Ron Paul donors. Look at the creativity of a few of them:
Wade Talkington of Panama City, Fla., who donated $1,000 to Paul, lists his occupation as “tax slave to the Federal Govt.” Erik Hovden of Olalla, Wash., is the “Head slacker in Chg” at Simpson LLC, and housewife Pamela Schuberg of Moorpark, Calif., a $2,300 donor, lists her employer as “our children.” Donald Cowles lists himself as self-employed and his occupation as simply “Capitalist.” Griswold Draz of Wellfleet, Mass., a $500 donor, is a self-described “curmudgeon,” and Andrew Maul of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a “Citizen Fighting Tyranny.” Others are more coy. James Harper of Vancouver, Wash., a $600 donor, offered “guess? ;)” as his occupation
My personal favorite is tax slave to the Federal Government. Truer words never spoken.

    What a difference a couple of years makes.

    If I had to do it over again, I would probably vote the same way again...(gagging). On second thought, well maybe for the Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik. John Kerry was/is a non starter for me. Bush has been a momumental disappointment for movement conservatives like myself. The only good legacy he's leaving IMO are some of his judiciary picks. For a self described libertarian conservative like me, he has been a disaster. At least with Clinton I knew he was going to govern liberally for the most part. I think Bush is almost worse than Bubba because it's like getting a knife in your back on most issues you think he'll be with you on.
