You can count on two things for sure from Rep. Ron Paul, R-Tex. The first is principled libertarian beliefs and the second is strong fundraising capability. He raised more than $700,000 for his political action committee LibertyPAC during a President’s Day “money bomb,” on online fundraising technique he deployed to great advantage during his 2008 presidential run, Politico reports.

ron, paul, fundraisingLibertyPAC pushed the money bomb with a video posted on Paul's Facebook page that leads supporters to conclude the Texas congressman will indeed throw his hat into the ring for the 2012 presidential race, as many political operatives have speculated.

"If we show him enough support, he will announce his official candidacy for 2012," says the text that appears halfway through the two-minute video.
