Facebook Event Page

After our amazing success in the Ames Straw Poll and our historic vote turnout, we are planning a Money Bomb for August 20th to capitalize on our momentum. And, August 20th is also my birthday :)

-- From Ron Paul's Facebook page.

The moneybomb was extended due to a cyber attack Saturday night!

Due to a cyber attack on ronpaul2012.com causing difficulties in donating during the final hours of the moneybomb, The Ron Paul campaign has extended the moneybomb until Noon (Pacific) Sunday- 8/21/11.

From Ron Paul's Facebook Page:

"The RonPaul2012.com website is under cyber attack. Our team is working to fix this as we speak. So sorry to all who have tried to make donations and could not. We'll have more info ASAP."

"We blocked the attack and are back on track. Since we missed time and donations, we are keeping the Money Bomb going until noon tomorrow. Please spread the word and make this a huge success!"

Ordered a hat and a wristband Saturday...

Thought they would be good conversation starters. Has anyone ordered from the campaign site? Just wondering how long orders take to ship?? Anxious to spread the message!

♫♫ You say you want a R[ƎVO˩]UTION ♫ Well you know ♫♫

Just got a package

of items I put in for a little over a week ago.

Exciting! Lot's of signs, stickers, etc.....

donated another $100

towards $2,000,000 :)


shouldn't the secret service be looking into the hacking of ronpaul2012.com ?

I would think that tampering or accessing computers in relation to a election is a big time crime...

? Thoughts?

Inside jobs seem to always disappear without an answer.

Computer hackers are eventually always caught, but sometimes months of effort are needed. I would hope that this crime, which happened to a presidential candidate, would automatically prompt an FBI investigation, but don't hold your breath. There is a constant battle between hopeful optimism versus grim reality.


They were all over the Palin email hacking back in 2008. I would think that when a campaign site is hacked, and there is a large amount of money involved, someone ought to answer for the crime.

Of course, the mainstream media didn't think it was important to cover the story...I mean the potential information leaked was personal and sensitive information on Ron Paul supporters and we don't count right?

Imagine if someone hacked Romney's campaign contributions.

This could be a huge story.

Sent to Drudge twice: RP Birthday Money Bomb Raises...

over $1.8 Million, that is news!

Is there still a Ron Paul media blackout? (rhetorical question)

Words Matter. The mainstream media needs a verbal lashing.

In a main stream article Ron Paul is described as "iconoclastic"

Now Webster defines it as such..


1: a person who destroys religious images or opposes their veneration
2: a person who attacks settled beliefs or institutions

Now that the number of people who a fighting the "truth of actions" are are involved in Propaganda.

Definition of PROPAGANDA

Now Webster defines it as such
1 capitalized : a congregation of the Roman curia having jurisdiction over missionary territories and related institutions
2: the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person
3: ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause; also : a public action having such an effect

Now when when we introduce this little word into the conversation it give us something to think about.

Definition of MORAL

1a : of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior : ethical
b : expressing or teaching a conception of right behavior
c : conforming to a standard of right behavior
d : sanctioned by or operative on one's conscience or ethical judgment

e : capable of right and wrong action

2: probable though not proved : virtual

3: perceptual or psychological rather than tangible or practical in nature or effect


The author of the article was probably reffering to Political, not religious, iconoclasm.


In all the donations, has anyone given the percentage of moneys donated divided by the amount of donators! Is this not a good measure of base?

hope for the best

I have always thought the

I have always thought the same thing lol. It is at least a million grass rooters i think

How many people donate do ya

How many people donate do ya think?

Just stopped by to say hello

First time logging in.

I figured it was overdue since I have been working to promote Ron Pauls message for so long.

I'm not rich, but I managed another small donation to the money bomb.

Just as I did last time I ran a thread about the money bomb in the forum where I post regularly. The first time I did it I managed to get confirmation from other posters that totaled up to a combined $150.

This time 8 of us managed to get it to over $250.

It works pretty good.

Check it out at this link and consider using the idea yourself for the next money bomb. I am dolphin both here and in the thread at this link.

P.S. Happy Birthday Uncle Ron.

Ever thought about ...

Sticking around. Getting to know us. Meaby between our common Interest you might find some great friends here ?

Long time no hear from

good to see you are still around. Keep up the great work dolphin!!!

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!


If Ron reached $1,878,480, that would only be 1,000 1oz gold coins. 5 years ago $1.8M would have bought you 3,300 ounces of gold or $6.2 MILLION today!!!

The dollar is imploding on itself like a dying star.

Those willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

wow i forgot gold is so high

wow i forgot gold is so high even tho it goes up everyday. lol

Was anyone scared that Ron

Was anyone scared that Ron Paul wouldn't have ran again in 2012. No way he knew the grassroots would grow... exponentially. He is delivering.
