I could only donate $6.00 to Ron Paul...

I'm well below the poverty line. My family and I, we struggle everyday with bills, deadlines, and debt. Not for lack of trying or due to laziness, but due to lack of value within our dollar. Our paychecks simply do not go as far as they used to. Prices of everything from food, gasoline, clothes, and basic modern necessities choke us. Our prices and the minimum wage continue to go up...My dollar should buy me more than just a candy bar, or a cheap soda.

I'm tired of suffocating.

We work our asses off for our money, with sweat upon our brow and calluses upon our hands. If eighty hour weeks scare some...it has been the norm for many in my tribe. Those eighty hours...?

Sometimes gone in less than twenty-four. Two weeks to go!

My dollar should mean something. My dollar should be something I respect. My George Washingtons have always looked paltry and flimsy compared to Benjy or Grant. Washington simply holds no weight!

So if I, a man who has grown up in a welfare system, who has always despised the welfare system, who has little to no money to spare due to my children, wife, and bills...If I can donate six dollars...despite that little voice in my head saying "That could buy an entire meal if used correctly...", please consider donating as much (no matter how small it may seem) as you can.

Lurkers, speculators, poor and broke, sick and tired...whatever you call yourselves...the "backseaters" of the campaign...spread the word. One dollar. Two, six, or ten.

I'm just a guy, from nowhere, who doesn't make much.

I could donate to Ron Paul. Even if it was just six dollars.

Every cent adds up...if even my six dollars only buys Ron Paul a cup of coffee and a donut, I'd say it was money well spent!

I'be never been more proud of America...

I wish so very dearly that I could respond to each and every one of you personally, on a man-to-man (or man-to-woman, PC I guess) level! I must apologize deeply and say that as of now, my schedule does not permit such. Just know that my heart and American spirit (does any modern candidate represent such...?) beats very much in time to all of you who have supported the one TRUE candidate! My wife has been brought to tears...!

I was born and have grown up under the Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr and Obama administrations. A young pup, in some eyes! Haha :P In my lifetime, (perhaps save Reagan...we won't debate over it) I've yet to see a truly magnificent President. One who speaks for the PEOPLE, not the private interests. One who speaks for our well being, our individual rights and our liberty.

One who speaks for our troops, our dollar, our peace and our privacy.

I do not hesitate when I say we truly are now living The Second American Revolution. We once had to fight and prove our independence towards a tyrannical English King...now, (almost in a comedic sense), we must fight and prove our independence towards an American King!

I could very easily see Paul amongst Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln on that mountain. Some say we shouldn't rush to "deface" Mt. Rushmore...I say, let Paul's eyes always search for liberty and his smile always resonate amongst the true greats!

I've written a song...until I can again afford to donate again what I can afford, this is the best that I can offer. I hope you again...a recording will become available soon!

"I'm Voting For Ron Paul"

Standard tuning, written in G.

By JMD, aka Noalium.

(Verse 1)
Cast your eyes upon the stage
There is something unfamiliar
Hands are clapping, voices chanting
Smiling face beams towards the center
Hear the message being spoken
Hear the hope, the joy, the pride
Listen now for just a moment
I'm hoping you'll be mesmerized

(Bridge)
When was the last time that we'd heard this song?
Recent memory, it all sounds the same
Guns were booming, dogs were barking
Coming across the blood stained waves
Now the silence is perplexing
What is this, some truth I hear?
I can finally absorb some sense at last
In the distance in the light so clear

(Chorus)
I'm voting for Ron Paul
The decision it is all my own
I said I'm voting for Ron Paul
I'll never be bent or broken
I'm voting for Ron Paul
Not just for some corporate machine
Because a vote for Ron Paul
Equals freedom and liberty

(Verse 2)
So you want some class, some freedom?
Or do you really love the lies?
I'm not against change, please believe me
I'm just against a change that lies
I guess Nixon opened the floodgate
Now they all think it's alright
I want a man that I can trust and depend on
Not a man who can't sleep at night

(Repeat Bridge)

(Repeat Chorus)

(Instrumental, twelve bars)

(Repeat Chorus)

(End on G)

We cannot stop peace or liberty, we cannot silence nor censor freedom. We cannot stand by and watch our country, the country we been taught to believe in...wither away and die.

Ron Paul. That is all.

Better to starve free than be a fat slave.

Reminds me of what Jesus said

From the Bible:
A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent.
Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them,
“Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury;
for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned,
all she had to live on.”
<< Mark 12: 42-44 >>

You are in such good company. Thank you for your post - and your powerful generosity and fortitude. I think you will inspire many more people! :)

It's $6 for liberty.

With Liberty a person can always start over from scratch. Without Liberty, there is NO hope.

Money well spent! An Real Investment for you and your family and our country.

It's $6 dollars more then he had before :-)

No matter how small or large the donations are, Ron Paul is deeply greatful for all of our support. I know how hard it is to donate when one has to juggle finances. Your heart said you could do it, I always listen to my heart too :-)

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

What happened was...

I was smoking a cigarette while reading this post. Smoke wandered into my eyes and that's why they were all watery. Yeah, that's it. I mean, I a man ya know?!

I can NOT thank you enough for your most generous donation.

These kinds of posts validate all that has transpired over the last seven years of my life.

Thank you Noalium, you are appreciated.

in my case...

I was drinking some wine while reading his post.
Smoked only for a few day when I was 17.
Wine and beer is my escape.
Helps me compose poems...helps me forget I'm a slave here(as we all are)...
For short amounts of time seems like my chains are broken.

Think about all the money you

Think about all the money you guys could give to Ron Paul if you quit smoking & drinking...

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Do you have a

cell phone? Or internet service? Or TV service? If yes, then you can donate more--go here: www.rprevolutionservices.com. Now you can give without spending a penny!!

Reading this choked me up...then fired me up!

Thank you.

I choked up reading this and I hope I don't have to read it to anyone in public, because I will choke up again.

I am inspired. Inspired by your message. Inspired to beg borrow and steal...and work my hands to the bone..to get Dr. Paul in office.

You are a true patriot. A true American. And an honorable man.

God bless you, bro. I plan to share this with as many people that I can.

And as for getting our dollar back and getting our liberty back, the fight has just begun for all of us.

Ron Paul 2012! Charge!!

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

I could not say it any better

That is the spirit we have inside of us that will bring us victory.

Today I was watching CNN coverage of this lottery that suppose to be the biggest ever (payout) and was thinking if I played in it and won several hundred million FRN's I would be tempted to give it all to this Liberty Movement Dr. Paul is leading.

Your donation means more than most.

In the bible it is written that it's not the total amount of a gift but the percentage of one's worth it represents.

So stand PROUD of your donation to Dr. Paul and for liberty.

We applaud you!

"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."
-Ron Paul

Well said

5 years reading the Daily Paul and in all this time some posts moved me to tears touching my soul my very essence -- this post is one of them.
I visualize angels above smiling when reading his words.

Money Grateful

It's important we donate but to those who can't afford to open their wallets it's good to see they can open their mouths to explain to others around them what Ron Paul's message is all about.

Your donation is mighty in spirit...

It's not the amount of cash that qualifies your commitment, it is a noble sacrifice appreciated by all of us.
Dr. Paul would be proud.

You rule.

This is a man who truly loves what his country stands for, or rather what it SHOULD stand for. Much love.

Thank you Noalium!

I've said it on here several times - if every supporter gave $5 or $10 -- we'd leave Rmoney in the dust! Thank you for giving and let's hope you inspire others to do the same!
