Washington (CNN) - Texas Rep. Ron Paul re-launched his political operation this week, the latest sign he will once again pursue the Republican presidential nomination.

Paul has raised $100,000 in the past 48 hours, Jesse Benton, who serves as the congressman's political director, told CNN.

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

I will donate again

But with the way the campaign was run ,
and the money was spent in 08.
I can't be all in this time as My Wife,
and Myself were last time.
Best of luck Dr. Paul

It's a good start.

Should he decide to run, and I hope he does, we have to realize that this will be his last. Pull out ALL the stops.

Bump for Front Page

This should be Top Front Page. Thank you for the heads up aVoiceofReason.

Vote this OP up people!

He just sent out another email

Asking to consider donating. I think this is it. He is asking us to make the first move.

I dont see a problem with it at all. He wants to know how badly we want him to run, and we have to put our money where our mouth is.

Someone needs to organize a money bomb...soon. I dont have that kind of skill to do it or else I would be honored to do so.

Here is the email:

Fellow Patriot,

I am counting on the backing of the liberty movement as I evaluate my political options, but I have yet to receive your pledge of support.

Please take a few moments to read my letter below and fill out your pledge of support.

After you complete your pledge of support, please make a contribution to Liberty PAC so I can determine the best strategy to fight for the cause of liberty.

For Liberty,

Congressman Ron Paul

I am donating $100 as we speak

Yes, I received that as well...

truthfully I was hoping there would be a money bomb- it's more fun that way.... Although, I also have to admit, in some ways I'm holding back. Don't get me wrong, I want Dr. Paul to run, and I'll donate as much as I can afford if he does, but given the way the 2008 campaign was run, I have some reservations.... Grassroots organization is essential, but so is a well organized campaign, staffed with professionals who know what they're doing and want to succeed.

So I will donate, but I'm probably going to start off smaller... It's like investing in a business (in our case the product is liberty). I need to see some evidence of a strategy to make me want to take the risk in investing.

well

When you goto the donations site, it lists different amounts you can donate, or of course you can donate any amount.

but the first amount it lists is $20.12....do this, it's very little but sends a message!

We need a $20.12 money bomb for liberty PAC!

If we can get everyone to donate even $20.12...he will get the message

that's what I donated- I

that's what I donated- I figured it makes it obvious what my intentions are/wish is... That, yes, I want Ron Paul to run in 2012, and if he does he'll have my financial support.

Same thing.

I'm feeling giddy.

Frankly, I am tired of the

Frankly, I am tired of the "seeing what we do" attitude. The question is, DOES HE WANT to be President? Not does he want to RUN for President. Anyone with any awareness knows that if you really want something, you can get it. I want to hear him say, "AS YOUR NEXT President, I will.." whatever, and, I will be very disappointed if he does not.

I know he probably trusts his staff...

but it needs to be augmented with some pit bulls. It's time to get serious, keep the genuine feel but refine it professionally.

Great start. Let's hope they spend it on surrogates...

for Dr. Paul, to speak at colleges and veterans organizations.
I nominate Gordon Duff, Michael Scheuer, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Tom Woods and Adam Kokesh, just for a start.

Wow! That is some

Wow! That is some accomplishment.

Bump for the weekend warriors!

isn't there a money bomb

isn't there a money bomb planned for soon? If not, there probably should be.

I'll say it again....

This is it, guys

This is RP's toe in the water. If we want to see him go through the absolute HELL of running again, he's asking us to "give him a sign".... and put our money where our mouth is.

He sent out a very low key letter the other day on this.
He's just going to sit back and see what WE do.
He's not gonna push, or "bump" to the top.
He MAY not say any more about it.

WE are the one's who have to get this thing kickin ass by keeping it bumped and sending it out to everyone we know. That and opening up our checkbooks. Ron Paul does NOT have to go through the brain damage of another campaign. He's done enough in his 30 years. LETS MAKE IT WORTH HIS WHILE!

Here ya go! http://www.libertypac.com/lpac/lpacps.html?pid=m1

Those sound like Obama 2008

Those sound like Obama 2008 numbers to me. Looking good. I think Ron's monetary arsenal will stand up against anyone's this go around.

How can we fight with money

if the economy cuts our donations in half but double those from the banksters? I want to donate but I'm not going to bounce a check to do it.
