Love you Paul

My small business will be donating $1,000 to the cause of liberty. We can do this and we are, challenge the staus quo. GO PAUL; God Bless everyone here & America

The Boss needs more money...

My hubby and I are both maxed out.

What are you guys WAITING for!!! Whoot! Go Ron Paul!!!

I could be wrong about this...

but I don't think there's any limit to how much swag you can buy at www.ronpaul2012.com. So why not buy as many shirts, signs, etc. as you can afford? I wear an RP shirt at least 4-5 days a week, and I have bumper stickers on both of my cars, and I've lost count how many times I've been bombarded multiple times a day by people interested in freedom.

Super Brochures

If your maxed out you can still make donations for these to help spread the word in the remaining states.

Those are also considered contributions

It says so during the checkout process.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Reflect the values of your potential contributers

"I'm going to need to raise at least $650,000"

Well, if either your official campaign or even the Revolution Super Pac would simply put together an effective anti-Romney comparison ad, I have little doubt it would bring in a lot of money to whoever was behind it so they could air it. T here would be plenty left over to help organize the delegates.

I understand all the reasons why the Paul campaign wouldn't want to, although I disagree with those reasons in the strongest possible terms. What is more suprising is that the Revolution Super Pac seems to be doing the same thing. Am I missing something? Are they talking (i.e. illegally coordinating) with people in the official campaign? Why won't someone - anyone - take my money?

Lets go gang....

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

What is the "BIG update"?

This is a great pep talk (as usual), and the call for $$$ is always a good reminder that we need to give as much as we can to keep the momentum going.

Nothing wrong with any of that, but why was this labeled a "BIG Update?" I thought it might be news of a new strategic direction, or some big-name endorsement, or a delegate win we didn't already know about, or SOMETHING.

Foreign donations?

Good afternoon people,
I would like to donate to the Paul campaign, is this possible for foreigners? (just love gettin'rid of euro's)
I would like to thank you, for the tremendous effort you guys are doing, it even got the libertarian party over here out of its hibernation. And they will join the elections in september, finally something to choose.
Keep up the good work, the world is watching you....Not by the mainstream media, though.

You can make a tax-free gift

You can make a tax-free gift to somebody in the US and they can donate.

Thanks....

I know some people in the US, but they're not citizens. Anyway, reading previous comments and 'guidelines', I think it's better I don't. I'll just support the libertarians here, a hard effort as well, if you thought americans were biased, it's no different out here.

Um

Not sure if this is legal but you could ask a friend in US to donate 'for' you.

This is ILLEGAL.

Please read all the links I've provided in this post:

Thnx for the reply

Sorry, could have browsed the site better, I see now. Don't want to cause trouble. Just recently have 'awaken' to austrian economics, and i am very enthusiastic, the world makes a lot more sense to me now...

Please donate to one of the PAC's

RevolutionPac needs funds too.. They're the ones who are making and running those awesome adds for Dr.Paul. I believe that's okay to do.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Pacs, cannot accept either

Check if you have friends or relatives in USA.
They need to use US credit card & address.

PAC's are allowed as far as I can see.

They aren't affiliated with candidates and can purchase store products and so on.

If U.S. citizens help foreigners donate

they are ALSO breaking the law.

Assisting Foreign National Contributions or Donations
Under Commission regulations it is unlawful to knowingly provide substantial assistance to foreign nationals making contributions or donations in connection with any U.S. election.11 CFR 110.20(h). "Substantial assistance" refers to active involvement in the solicitation, making, receipt or acceptance of a foreign national contribution or donation with the intent of facilitating the successful completion of the transaction. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to individuals who act as conduits or intermediaries. 67 FR 69945-6 (November 19, 2002) [PDF]. (emphasis added)

Instead of guessing what's legal, a 2-second Google search will lead you to the

Federal Election Commission Foreign Nationals Brochure.

It's all in there. Just read it!

considering that Romney's

buying his way to the nomination I really don't see how a foreigner couldn't make a gift of money to a US resident/citizen and call it a day. If the recipient "decides" he wants to give his gift away for one reason or another, who's to know what he does with it?

That's referring to direct donations to the candidates

not so with PAC's.. They're not affiliated.

This is called "Money Laundering."

You can't legally donate in someone else's name. Don't do it.
