You can see for yourself here.

You can check all of the candidates on that site. Lots of information.

Thanks Joe! I see that there's no lying about military people being among Ron Paul's largest group of supporters and I like the layout of that site, very useful.

Ron Paul has so much support from military and vets that he has managed to get more campaign donations from that sector than all the other candidates COMBINED! What he has accomplished to do on-line despite all odds is amazing and that speaks to the level of common sense he delivers. I may not agree with everything he says, but the fact is that his stand on anti-war and foreign policy and HUMAN RIGHTS and personal "FREEDOM" are the most important issues right now. People may say its the economy, which is important of course, but our personal freedom is in its death-throes right now, and if it doesn't get taken care of IMMEDIATELY, we may never get it back. At least not without a lot of bloodshed.

I saw in local 'Reno News and Review' a respondent to street interview query that Ron Paul has a write in vote if he is not elected in the primary and I think as you do that the bulk of what Ron says and his 30+ year consistent message is agreeable to me too and I will consider writing in my vote this time since it makes sense at this time of national and global emergency to do so.

We need solutions not promises.
