Only 3 candidates in 1999 had more cash on hand than Ron Paul at this stage in 1999. Even McCain the darling of the press was behind Paul in 1999 just like in 2007.

Interesting, but remember that the U.S. dollar has lost something like over 40% of it's value vs the Canadian Dollar and the Euro since then. Versus gold I'm sure it's even more.

Alot of buttons signs and some TV commercials have not gone up forty percent.

Paper has gone up in price but not that much.

Now throw in some numbers like
Hillary Clinton total raised: $90,935,788
Barack Obama total raised: $80,256,427
Mitt Romney total raised: $62,829,069

Quite an increase. Ask yourself what's changed in 8 years to make the Presidency worth more investment.

Money is not everything for Obama or Romney.

They look like Phil Graham of 1996 who had thirty million and went no where. He recieved less than one thousand vote and had over thirty millions dollars for his campaign. Dornan raised less than one million I think.

1996 New Hampshire Primary results.
