Like many here, you point us to a site with an agenda (Pro-Paul in this case) and then expect us to accept the link as a "reference" supporting your stance. Heck, you may as WELL cite a report on FOX or MSNBC ! Got any links showing data presented by someone WITHOUT an agenda?

Romney would be as bad if not worse then Obama but I don't see many on her talking about him, mostly Ron Paul

Your thread title suggests that Romney's campaign is "bought and paid for" (in allcaps) and yet I clicked that link, and I read that law-abiding United States citizens -- unlike OWS protesters, who are not law abiding United States citizens -- donated legally to Mitt Romney's campaign!

Nobody has bought and paid for MItt Romney's campaign. Those people are exercising their rights as U.S. citizens. And by the way, you don't have the right to trespass on private property.

and you tell me if you think the OWS protestors are going to appreciate romney's top 20 donors all being big corrupt banks and corrupt private equity firms.
