A "Thank You" Gift for Dr. PaulSubmitted by Aar0_ on Thu, 06/21/2012 - 15:41
Hi everyone. I was thinking that to honor and thank Ron Paul, who is probably finishing up his final political campaign, we could all chip in and buy him a nice, meaningful present to give to him at PaulFest. I don't think anyone will argue with the idea of getting a gift for the good doctor, so let's just jump right into brainstorming.
The potential gift that gave me this idea might be a little too out of reach, at such a high price and such short notice. CNBC is always playing where I work, and they're talking about how tomorrow, in NYC, Christie's auctions is auctioning off George Washington's personal annotated copy of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
To me, this seemed like the ideal thing to get for Dr. Paul, but I'm somewhat doubtful that we'd be able to organize such a big sum of money to be collected and spent so quickly. It's supposed to go for $3 million. If you think we can, let's figure out a way to run with it!
In the (somewhat likely) event that we can't, let's come up with something else that we can do for him that would be as meaningful. He's done so much for us - Dr. Paul deserves our sincerest thank you.
Looking forward to checking this when I get home.
