Yeah, you guessed it. Ron Paul
(Okay, technically Newt purchased his house for $5,000 less than a mil.)
WHY THIS MATTERS?
(to me personally)
We select our Rep candidates by our personal views. In which mine is I’d like a modest unobtrusive government.
Ron Paul, if you were to use homes as a basis, seems to represent that. While he is not the poorest of the candidates, falling in the middle of the pack. He appears to have the most modest home of all the candidates.
Especially when compared with his net wealth. Ron Paul lives the most modest lifestyle of all the candidates. In a time when we are experience excruciating national debt levels. It is important to me to elect a candidate who will help bring deficit spending under control, and I believe Ron Paul exemplifies that facet in his personal life more than the other candidates.
$85 to $264 million, $12 million house. (4.5% – 14% of wealth / avg 9.25%)
$16 to $72 million, $3.3 million house (4.5% – 20.5% of wealth / avg 12.5%)
$7 to $31 million, $1 million (3% – 14% of wealth / avg 8.5%)
$1 to $3 million , $1.3 million house. (33% – 130% of wealth / avg 81.5%)
- Ron Paul
$2.4 to $5.4 million, $262,500 house (4% – 11% of wealth / avg 7.5%)
I’d wager no one knows Ron Paul’s net worth because he’s a gold bug. And with gold’s recent increases he might have several million dollars off the record. Further lowering his home’s percentage of his worth.
