Why would anybody with even half a mind, believe ANYTHING that the MSNBC or the MSM says?

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Ron Paul is the only realistic guy in the race.

He's not spending in debt, and he doesn't seek out corporate welfare donations. If only our Country was financilly sound as his campaign. It's worth a good donation to keep him in the game!

Join me and others here at this FB event page for the money bomb

FB event page


my posts on FB have run like this -

Pledge to Ron Paul's 4/15 Money Bomb and let's send the Media and the Establishment a very clear message, Ron Paul is in it to Win:

Just $5 per person with 20% of the people who have voted for Ron or 20% of his FB "likes" and we have a $1 Million .........and I will assume some people will donate more than $5.....please pass along this concept - we don't all need to donate a large amount of money - WE JUST ALL NEED TO DONATE......there is power in numbers....Ron Paul 2012

Really need help with invites on this - we are a long way away from the 200K goal with just a few days to go.....all I am looking for is people will to donate at least $5 ......just $5 can make a huge difference if we all participate


we can get $4 $5 $6 million I know we can - if it snowballs and every last ron paul supporter is convinced to give something. Its not about large donations - its about participation

We are having huge rallies - we need those people to give $5 $10 $25 $50 - whatever - it doesn't matter
just giving something

Anyway please spread the message - the key is getting the message out and convincing people to just give something......THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS - LETS SHOW OUR NUMBERS

Chump Change!

We'll show them what a real money bomb is!

$5million sounds about right!

Question: Does anybody know


Does anybody know if Ron Paul is directly asking/informing people at the rallies about the April 15th money bomb?

4/11/2012 Fight On?

In the 4/11/2012 Fight On? fundraising e-mail from the campaign, "signed" by Ron Paul:

I won't mince words - if we don't reach our $2.5 million goal, I am not sure our campaign can go on.

We cannot do this halfway. It's too important.

So please, pledge your contribution today. Pledge to fight with me over the coming weeks and months....I am ready and willing to fight to Tampa if you will stand beside me. You can show your support today by pledging to give to our April 15 Taxpayer Freedom Money Bomb.

I can't tell if this was sent to me because I maxed out in 2008, or if it was sent to everyone on the e-mail list who ever signed up.

You're on the list, aren't you? You pledged, didn't you? You have to pledge so they can budget for TV time in advance. It's really hard to plan when you see the bank account empty--you know how he is--he won't go into debt and they need money to organize all these delegates.

Pledge here: http://pledge.ronpaul2012.com/mbpledge_tdmb.html

If I recall, we set a goal of $1 million last time, they bumped it up to $2 million this time, then up to $2.5, but I think we ought to set our sights on breaking $6 million, at least, given the rate of inflation. I don't see any reason why we can't, even if I am unemployed this time.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Good points IMissLiberty...

So it came from Ron himself.

I agree that he is a stickler (and rightly so) about staying solvent.

Why wouldn't he be?

After all he is running on babancing the budget and a sound monetary system and if his own campaign goes broke it hurts the very heart of his message.

We all have to dig on the 15th no matter how small the amount.

I will be there.

"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

yeah, throw more money at the problem... that'll work...

of course a few million will magically change the hearts and minds of neo-cons everywhere.

"sometimes I hug the coffee table when no one is looking."

We need to step up to the plate and make sure we raise more

than 2.5 million - because you know if we fall short, they will report that we didn't reach the goal and therefore he's dropping out. PLEASE dig deep!!!

They meant it for evil, God meant it for good.

This just gives RomBama Traction

This is B.S. through and through. The whole thing smells bad. One blogger posts this on the hill. Folks, let's not give the trolls more ammunition or food.

You see "news" stories about Ron Paul and how he is in last place, never won a caucus and his diminishing supporters should go away.

Don't wring your hands just keep doing what we came here to do. Win Delegates. If Romney was not worried about the R3VOLUTION his supporters would not be attacking Ron Paul everywhere they can.

These people are not going to punch you in the face, they will stick a knife in your back when your not looking.

They could be "friends" that you think you know. They can be supporters on here and they suddenly start suggesting a third party run, etc etc etc. Not saying everyone suggesting ideas like that is a Benedict Arnold but it should be weighed.

We are fools if we think an open and honest site like DailyPaul and others has not been infiltrated by the Romney and Obama folks.

What is important to remember is that if Ron Paul was losing, was unelectable etc they would NOT be wasting their time. Forgot the Sheeple Polls, this should be encouraging news since they are very interested in what we are doing.

In Liberty and solidarity.

Ron Paul 2012

This seems disturbing but I'm not sure the campaign said that.

The moneybomb's have always had a goal of a certain amount but have never (that I've seen) come with a threat of ending the campaign if that goal wasn't reached.

This ie probably hyperbole from MSNBC who I'm sure hate Ron Paul's policies nearly as much as FOX.

"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

Even though it's a lie I feel

Even though it's a lie I feel even more motivated to donate some $$$ for the money bomb. Let’s give Ron $3 million! To celebrate our victory each supporter should send MSNBC an apple with the money bomb amount on one side and on the other side saying “How do you like these apples"".

I believe it is a stupid

I believe it is a stupid mistake of the campaign to put that sentence in there if they only mean that they will not have the funds to execute their perfect plan that they have in the waiting.

Unless it is true of course that due to the expenses of renting the locations, etc. they are strapped for cash. Otherwise the wise and frugal spending of the Campaign so far does absolutely not suggest that they are in dire need. Anyone know when the Q1 numbers are being published?

you can tell they are just trying to push him out

They don't cover any of the huge rallies he has had in the last month - but they decide they have time to throw in this little piece. Its really disgusting. And if they did any research, spent any time - they would know this campaign isn't ending regardless of how much money is raised this weekend. Ron's message isn't just about getting elected - its about changing hearts and minds - its about changing the course of history.

They just don't get it

Oh they get it alright. The

Oh they get it alright. The CEO's of these media conglomerates are given their marching orders. If they succeed, they get their multi-million fiat dollar bonuses. If they don't succeed, they will get canned along with their 7 figure salary.
