just got an email from Mittens.

Inviting me donate 3 bucks to be entered in a contest to have lunch with the Mittster himself. Umm, I don't think so... Here's what it said;
Dave,

We will win this November.

But to do that, I'm going to need the help and input from supporters like you. That's why I'm inviting four supporters to chat and grab a bite with me on the campaign trail. I always look forward to sitting down and hearing firsthand from fellow Americans. These conversations serve as a constant reminder of why I'm in this fight.

It's also a lot of fun just getting to know you, especially over a meal. I don't know where we'll be eating, but it won't matter as long as there's good company.

So donate $3 today to be automatically entered for the chance to grab a bite with me on the campaign trail.

Thanks for your support,

Mitt Romney

How About Dinner with Dr. Paul Moneybomb?

It would take some cooperation from Dr. Paul. From the names listed on the donation on the day of the moneybomb names are selected. When Dr. Paul is in that area he has dinner with the Winner, or turn the dinner into a campaign stop?

I don't know? Three bucks

I don't know? Three bucks for a chance to ask him if he plans to back the eventual nominee, Ron Paul, or does he plan to run third party after Dr. Paul is nominated. Would make a great YouTube video!

Doug Wead talked about this

Doug Wead talked about this in the past (it may have been Ron Paul Flix?). This is a ploy by the Romney Campaign to show that they have a wide spectrum of donors not just the very wealthy. In fact Doug said that it costs 8 dollars to process a credit card donation (factoring all things like administrative costs etc). He specifically mentioned how the Romney Campaign was doing this contest where all you had to do was donate a dollar to get in this contest where you may win a chance to meet Mitt Romney on the campaign trail or something like that. Anyway, the end result is that the Romney campaign was willing to lose money in order to appear as if they had any other then very wealthy donors. Sickening.

i donated 5$ a few times...

boy do i feel like a jackass.

Doug is incorrect

It does not cost $8 to process a credit card. If it is costing the campaign $8 per run, then we have an issue with the campaign. If it cost $8 ro run a card, imagine how much your purchases at the corner store would actually be.

Credit transactions are based on either a percantage of the purchase, or a single small fee per run. It may cost $8 for a $1000 donation, but not a $5 donation. Sorry.

there's more to it than just

there's more to it than just the card swipe, i don't know all the details, but its not simply the % that starbucks pays

Yes, it is not just the

Yes, it is not just the credit card swipe, it is the processing fee for having staff to report donations to the Feds, paperwork to process the donation, mailing, faxing, etc. All the costs that a business must deal with to run. All those costs that the Federal Gov never considers when they mandate things etc.

Let's turn this ino a game

If you get the email donate 20.12 to Ron Paul.

Well Mitt

Maybe if you took a few bucks out of your $500 million offshore account and paid for MY lunch I would sit down with you and teach a little about austrian economics, the gold standard, and liberty!!!

Film it

the story: no one came

Maybe it's just me...

But I'm having fun thinking of all the ways I could enjoy eating with Romney...

-Shake head and roll eyes every time he speaks
-Don't eat... just stare...
-At random moments throughout the meal, interrupt in a robot voice with "I support Mitt Romney. He will save our country. I must vote for him in order to beat Barack Obama."
-Chant "PRESIDENT PAUL! PRESIDENT PAUL! at random points throughout the meal.
-Go wearing flip-flops and tell him you wore them in honor of him.
-Ask him if you can borrow a loan to start a company because you're parents are poor.
-At a lull in the conversation, say "NO, I WILL NOT MAKE OUT WITH YOU!"
-Ask the owner of the restaurant to play "Who Let The Dogs Out" on repeat because it's your favorite song.

I could go on...

If you win,

give the ticket to the first random person you see wandering in the parking lot outside of a Tourette Syndrome Support Group meeting.
Remember to make them a “Got Damn Mitt” t-shirt for them to wear to the luncheon.

WOW

They actually LOSE money with donations that low, I believe it is any donation under $5. I heard Doug Wead say it in an interview regarding an internet ad running - the same thing but Romney campaign asking for $1 donations. The reason they do this is so they won't look as foolish as they truly are with numbers of small-time donors at the grassroots level when they do their federal reporting.

Therefore I agree with the commenter below, give the $3 and if you win send the ticket to Doug Wead, Adam Kokesh, Andrew Napolitano, or the like :) You know, if you have $3 to throw around.

So---How did they get your email address??

One of my friends got the same email and she doesn't freely give out her email address!

Mittens ACTUAL EMAIL

We will win this November. (If i can get's rid-a that Ron Paul guy)

But to do that, I'm going to need the help and input from SUBJECTS like you. That's why I'm inviting four PEASANTS to Bow down and worship the BAIN Before me on the Military campaign trail. I always look forward to sitting down and hearing firsthand from agricultural laborers & Indentured Servants. These conversations serve as a constant reminder of why I'm Dedicated to ruling over you inferior miscreants and infidels.

It's also a lot of fun just getting to know you as I continue the plan to subjegate you even further, especially over a meal or bowl of grog. I don't know where we'll be eating probaly one floor above the dungeons -your future home-, but it won't matter as long as there's a good company of military soldiers at hand to excercise my authority to indefinetly detain you -under the NDAA- if you even smirk at me.

So donate $3 today to be automatically entered for the chance to grab a bite with me, and help fund the guillotines I have planned for you on the campaign trail.

Thanks for your support,

Mitt Romney
Presumtive Vulture President

I don't care who ya are

That Thar is funny...

Lol

I agree, That's how I read it too! Lol. I love it when someone is awake enough to read between the lines.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Send 1 penny by Credit Card

The fee alone to process it will put him in the red. Of course he will then be able to say the Peasants support him...

We should do a B.B.

gun BOMB for Mittens
1000 people donate 1 penny by credit card... ZING.. Instant deficit of at least 1K in processing fee... Maybe more.

Just mail 2 cents Stuck with tape in an x pattern

So he doesn't get credit for small donations. Then say "I'd like to give you my 2 cents worth".

donvino

I got a letter asking for money

Sent it back with a Ron Paul flyer in it!

Send the 3 bucks...

and if you win give the ticket or the invitation to Doug Wead or Adam Kokesh or Andrew Napolitano or Jan Helfeld and have people with cameras be there as well LOL

donvino

Well this is telling

"I'm inviting four supporters to chat and grab a bite with me on the campaign trail. I always look forward to sitting down and hearing firsthand from fellow Americans". Well how gracious he is to bend down from his elete position to talk to four whole commoners about what is really happening firsthand in this country. How very humble of him. I wonder if he will even listen?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Lunch with Mitt?... Didn't know robots had to eat.....

hmmmm... nah, I'll pass on lunch, Mitt. Motor oil and lithium batteries don't sound very tasty......

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

It was the first email I have gotten from him

I was trying to figure out how the hell he got me email address all of a sudden. Then I realized that the Ohio GOP (who I gave my email address to a few days ago) must have given it to him.

I'm not 100% certain, but this seems the most likely explanation I could come up with.

The Ohio GOP is openly campaigning for Romney. If this is against the rules someone please tell me who to contact (although I find it very implausible that I am the only RP person in Ohio who is getting these emails).

Contact GOP

Contact your GOP County chairman and ask him to file a complaint like this one:

http://www.pr.com/press-release/410950

It is absolutely illegal for the GOP to support any candidate (Romney) if there is an active GOP challenger (Ron Paul).

If there is enough outcry, the GOP and Romney will be exposed as the cheats they are. I've already sent the above link to my County GOP Chairman, I hope he has the guts to act.

My GOP county chairman is the one sending the emails.
