It should be good for around 1500.00 in donations this time around.

Hey Trevor, I'm putting the finishing touches on some suggestions for the upcoming debates, and campaign. I have received some excellent input, both publicly and privately.

I have a family connection to get this directly to RP since I'm here in Tx.. If there is anything you would like to add, please let me know.

I can be reached @
512-777-nine 5 five 7

The finished letter will go out tonight.

Thanks for all your efforts. Hope to hear from you.

Why are people randomly

Why are people randomly setting-up moneybombs without making advertisements? You can't just have a moneybomb, you have to get peole interested with videos, graphics, etc. Just saying hey lets have a moneybomb doesn't cut it. These have to be viral events.

The original moneybombs, people were posting vids and flyers up on every message board and blog on the internet, they were running adds in papers, etc. it has to be the same.

None of the videos that came

None of the videos that came for the first and largest moneybombs were in place before the event. They came from the grassroots after the event. So yes, we need them- more of them. That's up to you and other individuals to do or not do for these events. Honestly I think we're just getting warmed up and we'll start to see a lot more of these things in the future.

Here is one video someone made recently.

I'll be sending it around via email tomorrow.

I put up a meetup post and an email to all members. I also sent out an announcement to my RP 2012 facebook group too.

Absolutely nothing, but I did

Absolutely nothing, but I did just get this wild idea of trying to get an action packed nonviolent hypereducational Ron Paul video game made to fund his campaign.

Anyone else wanna take the reins of this thing? I'd be happy to contribute 3d artwork for it.

Heh-heh heh heh...

Well now. Since I organize and/or co-organize over a dozen MeetUp group's...and had already made the MONEY BOMB a MeetUp event a while back. It came to my attention this morning when the one week reminder came out for these group's that "some" of the other assistant organizer's and such had not yet RSVPed for the said MONEY BOMB.
HELLO!!!
So. Being the kind of guy I am, and considering that just maybe some of these fine people may have overlooked the event and /or maybe did not have time to make a click or two to secure their RSVP. Well, I felt an obligation to visit each MeetUp group site and RSVP "yes" for them. Imagine that. The attending member's for each of the MONEY BOMB event's climbed drasticly. Which as we all know, will look much more inviting to those who check the event when they open their reminder through the day.
I also added a sticky for the event to my personal e-sinature so that it is included in every e-mail I send out.
Anyone can snag that by highlighting it with a swipe of the mouse and right click and save (cut) and then paste wherever you like.

I have it promoted, front

I have it promoted, front page news on my game site. Most players know who he is how.

Blah.

I'm working to promtote

I'm working to promtote online posting to youtube vids and the like. Trevor, have you ever considered a recurring pledge bomb ...monthly, recurring, donations?

Thanks so much for your continued efforts Trevor!

I joined...

...all my area's Ron Paul Meetup groups and posted the date for the money bomb, and the October March on Washington, D.C. I'm headed over to post in my town's craigslist events next! I'm on fiyahhhh!

Hey Trevor, have you thought

Hey Trevor, have you thought about adding the option to donate with Bitcoins? www.weusecoins.com for more info but you can also msg me if you have questions..

why not just convert your bitcoins ahead of time.

.

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

It would be counterproductive

To promoting Bitcoins?LOL!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

non sequitur

I spoke because: Lyman doesn't control how money is accepted at ronpaul2012.com, so it's really irrelevant to ask him to do anything about it, unless haze is referring to the donation pages to support the moneybomb sites, which remains an unnecessary burden to place on him, when people could take it upon themselves to make the conversion. Externalizing problems bothers me.

You spoke because: you perceived me as attacking an idea.

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

My mistake

I thought I saw a hint of sarcasm in your reply about the bitcoin spamming and mistakenly chose to agree with you.I apologise for the misinterpretation.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

No no no, I meant donations

No no no, I meant donations for his http://www.legalizegoldandsilver.com/ website. If you check it out you'll see he has two donate links one that says "keep us running" and another for facebook adds..

I know it probably doesn't make sense for the official campaign to accept Bitcoin right now..

And I was only asking because someone like me, from Europe without a paypal account might want to donate but can't.

Thanks Haze. That's a pretty

Thanks Haze. That's a pretty neat suggestion. I've heard of bitcoins and am making progress in my learning curve as to what they are all about and how they work. If not by this moneybomb perhaps we'll have them up for the next. Nice idea!

bumping this thread

for starters.

Trying to get people

to think about tying it into Dr. Paul's letter that went out yesterday. Legalize Gold and Silver is a great thing to promote, but nothing inspires RP supporters to really get in the fight than a challenge to show the establishment they're wrong.

Romney, who unfortunately brings greasy salesmen to my mind, was "promised" 10M over the phone apparently. We can do better than that. We can raise and put REAL money in the bank. IMO you will get way more donations if you focus on beating Romney and showing the establishment up as the idiots they seem to be. A video to really fire people up and coordination between members of FB, C4L(what organization can control what their individual members do outside the organization?) and Meet-up groups to not only donate but get the word out locally.

Each person gives a minimum of $10 (more is welcome of course) but who can't afford $10? Very few. We throw $10 away on inconsequential things everyday. This $10 is an INVESTMENT in our liberty...and it could pay really big dividends. But we all have to work together to achieve the same goal. $10 from at least 1 million people. Dr. Paul has millions of supporters.

I realize that we all prize our individuality and are often derisive of the theory of "team work" but it really does work if you just unify around a basic idea/goal and have a base to touch back into for ideas and reporting back. Once you have that, and those 2 things are CLEAR to everyone...then let the grassroots create/share/run with ideas how to achieve it.

What are you doing to promote fairness to Ron Paul in the Media?

Okay, maybe people just get more excited about raising money. But it's not the only tactic we need to employ. You could raise $6 million in a day (like the RP campaign did in 2008) and still lose big time because of media bias (like 2008).

If people don't hear about Ron Paul, they won't vote for Ron Paul.
And if everything they hear is negative, it's even worse.

Raise $6 million and you can spend it on advertising. But people don't listen to advertising the same way they listen to news stories.

The media covers NON-candidates (Trump, Palin, Huntsman, Ghouliani, Bachman) more than Ron Paul (someone who is actually running). That means that most people won't even hear about Ron Paul. When the news DOES cover Ron Paul, it's a blip about money-raising - not anything about his policies and beliefs. Nobody gets to know Ron Paul through the lamestream media.

Want to see the utter contempt with which the media treats Ron Paul?

We need to change this.

So here's a challenge: Do something about media bias against Ron Paul.

Read it, and sign up to help. Time is short if we're going to force the media to treat Ron Paul fairly. So do it now!

Then send some money in for the money bomb!

End media prejudice against Ron Paul in 2012.
