Ron Paul writes a Thank You

Once again, I have been blown away by the support of so many from across the Nation. Over 14,000 individuals have chipped in to raise more than $700,000, and I plan to put this money to good use.

I was so happy to hear Ron say he is now going to be able to

hire private planes to take him around the country, and not have to go through TSA!!! He said it is much more practical and you can get around in about 1/4 of the time! This great interview with Robert Scott Bell was posted by JT Williams in the Rand Book Bomb comments section: http://www.ronpaul2012podcast.com/2011/02/22/ron-paul-on-the...

some people have been asking for the graph data set:

so I'll put it here:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?hl=en&hl=en&key=0AiTCYm2...

For computational simplicity's sake, the graph I put above only displayed 50 of those data points, evenly chosen throughout to remain characteristic enough for a sum.

I could have also stored all the names that were shown, but that does not correlate with: "all the people who donated" or "all real people", so I left that alone.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Not a bad start...

We did pretty good, but I think a nice even Million Dollars would have done the trick right away.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Go to the Movies

I still think advertising in movie theatres is a great idea. Focus on the movies that will influence the most.

Does Ross Perot support RP? Does anyone know?

Also just saw CNN announce that Ron Paul is headed to New Hampshire!

I saw that too on cnn.... Just after they said he is headed to NH they said "Paul came in last in the 2008 primary in NH"..
after we get him elected i wonder if he will give any msm interviews? doubt it.
funny to watch cnn and fox have to come to the DP for their news on President Paul!lol

ok they have fixed the ticker

ok they have fixed the ticker at Liberty Pac and it is at $738,000, but my question now is why was the ticker removed from this thread and the home page at the DP,,,,its so exciting and motivating to see it so I dont know why they just dont leave it up here.

The whole site is not loading

The whole site is not loading properly so I think there is just some problem with it,,,I'm sure it will be back up soon,,,,I think the worst thing they could do is to actually remove the ticker so I dont think we will see that happen.

The ticker is gone

It just vanished

awh they took the ticker off the lpac site...& put it back!

boo...ok.

i just donated! :-) feeling

i just donated! :-)

feeling good.

Thats for sure. There is alot

Thats for sure. There is alot of money that hasnt been added yet because it is coming via the mail. I was very discouraged to see that the only way peope from outside the USA can donate is by mail because there is no way to pay online if your address is not from a "'STATE", I'm from Canada and I tried to donate many times with my paypal but was refused each time because of the ADDRESS THING. I have family that live in the U.S so I finally got them to make the donation for me and I am sending them the money in the mail but I wonder how many people from outside the USA were very upset at not being able to simply go to Liberty PAC website and instantly donate during the 24 hr period. I know that only Americans can donate to the actual presidential campaigns but the way I understand it is that anyone can donate to his Pac so I think someone should fix this problem with the Liberty Pac site to make it easier for people outside the country to donate because the Dr has alot of support from outside the country also. I know he at least got $100.00 from one Canadian,,,,ME ,,

Is there a way to find out

Is there a way to find out how many people. I see alot of people only gave 20.12 so there must of been alot of individuals giving a few bucks? I only did 200.12...Just wondering.

steve

I think there has been way to

I think there has been way to much focus on the whole(24 hr thing). As I sit here writing this, the ticker is approaching $730,000. I believe the ticker will stay operational from now on. I think we should be concerned with trying to push it over a million, at the current rate I am predicting it should push past $800,000 by this evening. I am in pacific time where it is 9:30 am. On a different note I hear so many people say they will donate once Dr. Paul announces,,,,all I have to say to them is "HELLO" have you been sleeping for the last month, he has been setting up his camppaign since CPAC, do you need the clouds to part and a spaceship to fly over head that says "RON PAUL 2012" before you realize we are already in the opening month of his presidential campaign.You have to realize the political strategy benefits of wiating as long as possible to announce it in the MSM, but the close supporters of RP are supposed to see through all that. Anyone who has recieved the letters from Liberty Pac should be able to read between the lines and see that he is telling you "HEY I am running so get the ball rolling with the money so I can start planning the all the cities I need to visit for my campaign"....

Thank you for spelling it out in more detail

than I have been on this thread.

One point you didn't mention is that the PAC provides much more flexibility; once Dr Paul is an "official" candidate, the full weight of federal campaign finance regulations descends upon him and all of us.

And hello to you up there in BC where I have roots.

Gotta also keep im mind

All the checks that are being mailed in also. The next few days will prob see it reach 850 or even 900. We will prob see a mini bomb if it reaches 900,000 to push it over the top.

Also the fact that some people haven't even been on-line for over a week. This was a spir of the moment thing.
Once word gets out to Ron Paul supporters that they missed a major money bomb they will donate. I think we might see a huge explosion of cash in the next 24 hours.

Nearly 3/4 million

Hopefully Doc can make some good use out of this money =)

...

This was a test to see just how strong the base is. I am quite certain Dr. Paul is overwhelmed by these numbers.
He knows 60%-70% are youth. This speaks VOLUMES to him, in this economy. Dr. Paul is a very smart man and knows what he is doing.
He knows where the real power is and when the books are written, he will go down as one of the best politicians to hit DC, ever in our history.
He plays the media like a finely tuned fiddle. Never giving money to the beast that attacks America but allows them to give him interviews.
He will set traps for the power hungry politicians and the ones who are authoritarian by turning their own policies against them and allowing them to rip each others heads off, while he stands back and watches them. Paul NEVER attacks, and when attacked, he counter punches with the public's empathy for him, as an underdog. He lifts no finger - (only a pencil!) and he knows America loves the underdog. He has tapped into an anger that no one else can corral and direct and he does this by design, as if he were created for this.

People are being exposed to just how ravenous our politicians truly are and a man like Paul on the stage exposes this like nothing else could. When Paul speaks on stage, the others can't even look at him. They look at their feet or a loved one in the audience because they know what he speaks.
Obomba would NEVER debate Paul nor would anyone else, except that moron Trump who never met a fed note he wouldn't steal, bankruptcy he wouldn't declare or a war he wouldn't fight with others children's lives.

This will be very interesting to watch and the historians are watching closely.
Paul has kept excellent records of his views and stands.
He has a voting record, his hands are clean and his family is willing to sacrifice.
This family has the establishment in tears. They are frustrated and are extremely worried. They know their actions and dirty deeds are not only recorded, but exposed to the public now. They think they are recording the public, but it is the public who will use their own recordings against them.
They think they built Guantanamo Bay for Muslims and others they feel racial hatred towards, but it is them who will be tossed in there. Americans will not provide a blade of grass for them to stand on, when the total extent as to what they've done, is found out. Guantanamo will be the only place for these traitors. They are just now finding out THEY are the ones that have been had. They think they can take an oath before God and ignore it?

After they think it cant get any worse, they find out he has a son!!! Then two sons!!! lol

Ron Paul is about to tap into the greatest power on earth. He has human spirit on his side but as he knows, nothing good comes easy or free.

Watch just how good he is and don't be so quick to question his moves. He has been fighting and beating neoconservatives and other traitors for years by HIMSELF and has survived. You will not see his Revolution televised as we all know. Paul has been practicing his message for years and now it is time for him to present it.
People are watching, but do they want it? That is the question because I'm not so sure.

Thank you 1777

for these words of wisdom about OUR man who is indeed a magnificent man - for all the reasons you wrote.

We will prevail because we will hold steady to the truths of The Good Doctor and strengths and the courage he has and shows every day.

You have put a perspective in writing that we all need to have because you hit the nail dead center.

The Good Doctor's philosophies will prevail and also we who stand beside him and fight the good fight.

Good always triumphs over evil we are in the greatest battle EVER and we will prevail.

PS One point - I do not refer to The Good Doctor as a "politician" - ever. He is a statesman through and through. That word defines his actions in CONgress.

Ron Paul is My President

If people

can think for themselves and IGNORE the MSM, they will be able to understand that Ron Paul's policies are not only what they want but what they need. We are at a critical and hopefully not irreversible time regarding this country's very survival.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

...

In my opinion the msm is part of it, but a bigger part is America is addicted to government and all its promises.
Americans have lost the true picture of what a Constitutional Republic should look like. They simply don't know and have been dumbed down, so much so, they are afraid of our constitution. The Chinese know capitalism and freedom better then we do! What does that say?
I worry that if Americans find out the Constitution doesn't provide healthcare or alms to the poor, they may not want it. This scares me.
It scares me that people are so confused and so narrow minded to liberty, and so open minded to authoritarianism.
Ron Paul said at cpac "I'm afraid we're losing it" - speaking of liberty. I've never heard him say this before, in that tone.
The media at somepoint will be forced to come around, probably at the last minute.
But the stupidity of the public at large about their constitution is forever if we don't change it.

Also, there is a powerful group that if brought to Paul's message would be a game changer and that are the gays.
The funny thing about the gay community though, is it will not be a gay issue that will turn them from Dr. Paul. I think it would be the abortion issue and this issue must be more fully understood by voters and exactly what his position is. His is the best I've heard and is the least dividing answer to an extremely vile issue that has torn America apart limb by limb for years and has been exploited by treasonous traitors to keep us divided.
This issue has won and lost elections and is a game changer, in my opinion.

As for me personally, I have no side I take. But I do think Dr. Paul's typical "most large issues should be handled at the local level. The larger the issue the more local a solution should be", response is the best one and we should look to our constitution and states rights for this along with the gay and other issues.
I think gays and prochoicers would wake up to the fact that if this were left to the states, this issue and others would disappear off the national stage and move to the state level- basically stopping these arguments in its tracks. The left should think about how right wing Christians would be silenced and shut down on the national stage. Same with the gay rights and medical marijuana. These are the groups that can sway this election in favor of Dr. Paul. If the message is delivered the way a Paulite is expected to deliver Paul's message. Remember the last DADT vote Paul made? This was a wonderful vote and he should be proud. I think this may have been a hard vote for him and he should be commended for upholding the constitution, even if it goes against his religious beliefs.
Oh well.....
All I know is ~ I look forward to lighting up a big fatty at the state of the union 2013! lol Which Dr. Paul would probably hold OUTSIDE in front of hundreds of students and colleges. We would need to bring our own chairs though...No free seats!

Go Ron Paul

Ps. I think the gays could turn against Dr. Paul over the abortion issue because they view it their job to protect womans rights as well as their own. They hold the keys to many votes from single woman who now blindly vote democrat.
But if these people TRULY understand Pauls message, this could be a big game changer and Obomba and dems know this. They didn't want to push DADT! They had to. They can see Paul and his message coming. They know if the gays turn to Paul so will the liberal vote go.

Great posts :)

Your name says it all to me. Free 4 ALL. In my opinion that's what Dr. Paul represents, freedom from all liberty crushing policies/government FOR ALL in the world. Because America is STILL, even with all the terrible things its been part of, looked to by the world. Dr. Paul leads by example...by the best of examples...and that is worth gold and a true force for good.

"MoneyBomb is Huge Success!" -Ron Paul

I don't know if this has been posted yet, but I received several such emails throughout the day from "Ron Paul" and he was very surprised at the such a show of support!
I received this at about 8pm (when donations were around $250k for the day):

"Dear edward,

What a day we are having!

The Liberty PAC Presidents' Day Money Bomb is proving to be a huge success.

The money and support is pouring in, and I am eternally grateful.

Today's activity has allowed me to confirm another trip to Iowa, as well as a trip to New Hampshire in March, and I have given clearance for the planning of a trip to Nevada."

Imagine how encouraged he was waking up in the morning and seeing the bomb brought in about $420,000 for the day! way more than $250,000! the truth is this bomb could have raised $1,000,000 (an impossibly high number given the circumstances, of which he was well aware) and for strategical reasons he still won't announce for probably another 3 months or so.
This bomb was awesome! Pat yourself on the back, get ready for the next one and pray that it's after he announces and we have at least a month to prepare.

Hey!
Thats MY EMAIL!
How did your name get on it?
