The Paul campaign called last night requesting either $650,000 or $850,000 in the next two weeks

But I don't see a ticker here or at the campaign website (I mailed $100 today). Anyone else get such a phone call ?

Today is that special day
It comes every year in May
When we honor our Moms
And give thanks for their charms
Yes, today is that special day

They used to take care of us
Now over them we make a big fuss
Maybe flowers and candy
A gift is just dandy
And a meal away from home

We send hugs and kisses
With love and best wishes
To Mom for a Wonderful Day

Next Money Bomb May 17th

remembering our WHY

I just find this old video clip that says it all. And look what has happened since. We've quietly accepted everything.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCz-zpbhaGE&feature=results_m...

Yup, that was the feather for my wife and I

We watched that, V is for Vendetta, looked into his Record and marveled that there may actually be one already standing. Then we stood up and decided not to take it anymore and hit the moneybomb.

Come on, we're making

Come on, we're making progress...ticker stands at $1,762,728.47 as of right now.

Keep it going! We'll take more states!

For those not

For those not donating....Here is something to think about....

At the end of February, Ron Paul had just $1.37 million in his campaign account. Since that time, he has gotten approximately $4 million in donations. (I am estimating March and early April but it has been $1.7 million since the last money bomb, and he was getting about 16,000 a day before that, and got less than $2 million in the previous money bomb. So it is about $4 million total.)

So, adding that to what he had and that is $5.37 million to spend over the last 10 weeks. AT THE MOST. (Less since all those $5 or $10 donations amounted to much less after credit card fees.)

While that may sound like a lot, consider that he spent $8.5 million in January and February alone. And even though March and April would be less costly months for a campaign, they are not THAT much cheaper since Paul has been continuing to travel to colleges which is not cheap.

There is a reason why the last two request for money have had specific amounts asked for. Because that is what he NEEDS to continue with any real campaign. But the previous request got almost a million dollars less than asked for. And so far this one is over $500-700,000 less than asked.

And yet people are still complaining that Ron Paul is not flooding the TV channels with anti-Romney commercials? Where do you expect the money to come from?

I kind of agree with this post

please send enough money to pass the processing fees

$8.00 process fee for credit cards

Spend your smaller contributions on merchandise.

More bang for your buck.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Tonight

I got a call tonight, with the figure quoted as $650K. The person to whom I spoke after Ron's recorded message asked me nonchalantly if they could count on me for $850. I said "did you say $850?"

I could only pledge (and then donate on the spot) for $100 but may look for room for more in a few days.

Funny though, just this afternoon I went to the public site for campaign financing and looked at all my line item contributions and while I didn't total them up exactly, I bet $850 would close out my $2,500 limit. I know I've given him over $1,000 across a number of bombs. I was pretty surprised at how it adds up.

something fishy is going on

something fishy is going on here with the volunteers. They should not be asking for a specific dollar amount from a donor. They asked me for $200 and I was really surprised they would ask for that much from a single person. Usually, Paul asks to donate as generously as you can, and noting any amount will help.

I think this puts off people from actually donating. Someone should investigate this.
