Auction Ends Saturday: Ron Paul Signed $100 Trillion Zimbabwe Note for benefit of the Daily PaulSubmitted by Uriah Matthews on Fri, 03/16/2012 - 15:55
Hello everyone! As many of you know Michael recently indicated he was raising money for the Daily Paul to keep the site running through to the GOP convention in August. Well, I reached out to Michael to remind him that I had additional Zimbabwe bills with the "Daily Paul's" name on them.
I had hoped to get this up on Saturday, but life is busy and I'm finally getting this done at 12am on Tuesday 3/13/12. The Daily Paul community has come through and the fundraising hit the $20,000 mark. But let's be serious ultimately August will come and ultimately those funds will be exhausted. This auction is our bonus round for Michael and our community we know as the Daily Paul. Maybe he can earn a great interest rate! (yeah right) Last time we raised over $1,800.00. Let's see what we can do this time! The auction ends this Saturday, March 17 at 21:46:50 PDT.
[Below is for the most part a copy / paste version of the last post, slightly updated, that tells the story of these bills]
My name is Uriah Matthews. I assist Michael in the running of the Daily Paul facebook page. I am committed to getting Ron Paul elected and these bills come with my word as being in fact signed by Ron Paul.
I purchased 10, Zimbabwe One Hundred Trillion Dollar Bills over the summer to assist in my conversations regarding the economy and our Federal Reserve Problem.
I took 5 of these to Orlando with me to the Presidency 5 where I had Dr. Ron Paul sign five of them. I am personally keeping one of them and sending the other one to Michael Nystrom.
The remaining three (One of which has already been auctioned) will be auctioned off on E-bay for the exclusive benefit of the Daily Paul. Whatever I receive will be sent to Michael to help him with whatever financial costs are associated with his running of the Daily Paul.
I have donated money in the past when Michael indicated he needed hardware/software upgrades. I have kicked around the idea with Michael of doing some sort of auctions to also help out and this is what I came up with.
I haven't ever really wanted to get very specific about myself on here but I feel like I have to as some sort of validation these bills are in fact signed by Ron Paul.
While at Ron Paul's "meet and greet" in the Rosen Hotel I asked Jesse Benton if I could get them signed for this very occasion. He had me wait in a back hall where Ron was to walk through at the conclusion of the meet and greet. I waited and got to see the doctor for the exact amount of time it took for him to sign the bills and he was on his way.
If you have any question please let me know.
