Let's Make A Deal

Would my fellow Paulites mind if I had a little fun today? Would you like to join me?

My wife and I planned to donate $100, but waking up this morning I sensed Karma was in play,

Some of you may remember our daughter Emily and her "Ron Paul Is Our President" video from 2007. She was four then and eight now and firmly follows her mom and dads inaugural anticipation of our 45th President, Dr. Ron Paul.


Some of you may also recall, Emily started playing the drums two years ago.

On February 15th, Emily entered a drum contest for females called Hit Like A Girl 2012. Over 300 females from around the world entered the contest. Emily is the youngest competitor. After two months,public voting ends at 11:59 pm tonight, April 15th 2012.

Okay, so I just spent 30 minutes writing another three paragraphs of explanation, deleted it, and let's just cut to the chase.

My wife and I will donate an extra $1 for each vote she receives from now until 6:00 pm est, up to $250.00.

I hope you all will realize this is not a spam. The current vote leader has nearly 5,000 votes, Emily has 345. In our minds,
she is already a winner. She has been publicly recognized by the band Collective Soul, Sheila E and we even found her video
embedded on Sarah Palins video site and several Drum forums as well. We allowed her to enter this contest for several reasons and none of them were an expectation of winning.

Not only does this offer provide us with an excuse to dig a bit deeper, but it also provides us an opportunity to see our little girls face light up when she see's another 150 votes later today.

So if you have 5 minutes, please watch her rock the drums and if you enjoy her video, take another 2 seconds to click the "Vote For This Video" button. Nothing to fill out unless you wish to make a comment, just a simple click.


Thanks for playing.

Mom and Dad

Dear Daily Paul,

We are overwhelmed by the response to Lets Make A Deal. To you all who watched, voted and commented, Thank You!

Emily spent the night with a friend and will be home soon. When she see's her vote total, she is going to absolutely freak out. Today had nothing to do with winning a contest and I surely hope each of you understands and realizes what your kindness will help us accomplish as parents.


Bill, Kim and Emily

Dear William,

Thank you for your generous contribution of $250.00 toward my campaign to win the White House and Restore America Now.

With your support, we are securing strong top-tier finishes in several states, we are increasing our vote totals from 2008 and, most important, we are picking up delegates in our march to the nomination.

This is only possible thanks to you and thousands of other grassroots Patriots all across the nation.

Remember, it's the American people – not the establishment media – will decide who the Republican Party will nominate.

Your donation allows us to continue directly reaching millions of voters with the truth about my consistent conservative record.

Your support also enables us to get the word out about my "Plan to Restore America," which cuts $1 trillion from the federal budget in the first year of my presidency and delivers a fully balanced budget by year three.

Our nation can no longer afford politicians who would rather play games with the American people than get serious about implementing the fundamental changes necessary to get our country back on track.

Thank you again for everything you do to help me win this race!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
