We passed 4.5 mil!!!

One question however--does anyone have any theories on why in a week we didn't raise as much as we did in a day last time around? You'd think there would be a lot more people donating with all the new people who have seen the light. Maybe most aren't "plugged-in" -- at least not on short notice, compared with money bombs planned weeks or even months in advance?

Millions of people have lost their jobs

since the big money bombs of 2007.

That was November 5th and December 16th, 2007....

It's early days and we also need to consider that money bombs were a creative and exciting new adventure, and achieving records spurred people to get involved.

God knows what events might occur in the next 4-5 months, or what new great ideas might inspire our imaginations.

More important than the moneybombs is how people work on the ground, having learned from what worked in the past. If the message touches more people, and Ron Paul's chances become more apparently hopeful, who knows how well donation campaigns will do.

I think we are in a dire

I think we are in a dire economic state. much worse than 08

My theory...

...is that payday for many of us comes on the first of the month.

Cuimhnigh orm, a Dhia, le haghaidh maith.

My Reality Is.....

Like so many others that maxed out for Dr. Paul in 2008 don't even have jobs now to be able to contribute more than $25 or $50 bucks. Be mindful of that....Please!!!

We're not in Kansas anymore Toto...

Panama expats support Ron Paul

That is our reality,

as well. We scraped up a small sum this time after maxing out last election cycle. We weren't rich then (middle class income) and sure are not now.

We are not even in OZ, we are approaching the Democratic (not the party) Fascist States of America.

True. I was unemployed in


I was unemployed in '08, but I was collecting unemployment - which I gladly donated to Paul and converted to silver. This time around I still don't have a job, nor have I unemployment coming in. I still donate, but last time I was donating $50 to $100 at a time. Now, it is $20 to $25.

I am a statistic that doesn't get counted in the official unemployment number.

4 Million 500 thousand

I am out in Korea and it is 6:15 pm and I just saw the ticker go to an even $4,500,000.00 Congratulations to everyone who donated and thank you to the last donor who made it reach the 4.5 million mark!

can you still donate in hawaii or alaska and have it count??

or is based on West coast time?

Yes you can still donate in

Yes you can still donate in Hawaii and have it count.

$1.5 million tip for doing

$1.5 million tip for doing such a great service


we're not going to hit 4.5 before i retire?

It's so close!

It's so close!

I know!

Somebody donate the remaining $676 already dammit! LOL

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?

Michael/Jon: x-axis isn't uniform...friendly suggestion

friendly suggestion to Michael/Jon - I noticed the use of 2 different reads for some days (6/24, 6/25, 6/27 and 6/29) but just 1 reading for 6/23, 6/26, 6/28 and 6/30. This causes the slope of the graph to vary so perhaps 1 reading per day will suffice. If you do 2 readings per day, then always do those same readings each day.

What is interesting is that the sharp slope on 6/25 would look even steeper if there was one "6/25" on the x-axis.

also, this is great because the campaign/grassroots can analyze the data to determine optimum days (looks like Saturday and the last day of the fundraising were good this time but I can't completely tell with the varying x-axis).

again, just a friendly suggestion...I really loved the graph as well as the overlapping graph for the last money bomb where you compared it with the President's Day and Debate Day moneybombs. Keep up the good work.




I am glad it worked...I can almost go to sleep :)

I wish I could help but both

I wish I could help but both sites think me donating again is a "duplicate transaction". :-(

you may want to clear your browser's cache

just an idea


Perhaps you could use a different payment method? Maybe paypal if they take it?

Or change the donation amount?

Liberty and Justice for ALL!

Well I did both clearing the

Well I did both clearing the browser cache and changing the donation amount and it worked fine.

gotta get to $4.5M before I can sleep....

$1,060 away...c'mon franco needs his sleep!

I am Glad...

I am glad I am not the only one watching this ticker like its overtime at the super bowl.

welcome to the DP, methepeople!

Good time to join.

$4,498.770.26 I think we might have made it!!!!

It was reported earlier that the campaign had alot of offline money sent in that had not been added to the ticker total. It is possible we are over 5 mil.

Great Job Freedom Fighters.

Would/Will those be added

Would/Will those be added soon ?

They Might have already been added

There was someone commenting early who was in touch with someone inside the campaign who said at that time they were not added. I do not know if that has changed ...perhaps wishful thinking?

I would love to wake up and

I would love to wake up and see that like 5.3 -5.4 mil was raised haha. Either way, Ron Paul's popularity is rising dramatically.


Me tooooo

I am on the east coast its 3:20 here and I can't go to sleep until I see it hit 4.5. But you are right to wake up in the morning and see more than 5 WILL be Awesome!!!
