Ed Vallejo Tampa Chip-In

Greetings fellow Patriots!

Ed Vallejo here, asking for your assistance.

After five years of actively working to have an HONEST MAN - named Captain Doctor Congressman Ron Paul - fill the office of President of the United States, I have long ago utilized all my funds, and am in debt a little bit. Nothing I couldn't NORMALLY handle, but these are NOT 'normal times' by any means!

These are the times that empty men's souls after they have been tried to their limits.

At this point, I CANNOT stop now. Not and be able to live with myself. Because of this, I am putting up this Chip-In and doing what I hate doing most in The Liberty Movement - asking for money.

http://psychictaxi2012.chipin.com/live-coverage-from-the-con...

TO BE CLEAR the funds given here will NOT go towards paying for my Registration, Transportation, Lodging, or Food in my 'official capacity and duties' as Alternate Delegate at the Republican National Convention in Tampa - that would be considered 'coercion' (unlike a Goldman Sachs Contribution!). I have already taken care of this at my own expense, as required by FEC rules.

All funds generated by this Chip-In will provide me with what I have planned for Tampa in August, and that is a LOT if I get enough funds. LIVE COVERAGE from the Convention Floor with an Ed's-Eye view of what is happening, with a running commentary and interviews is my first and foremost objective, with a close second of bringing the vaunted PHOENIX BANNERS that we are soo famous for to BLANKET not just Tampa or the surrounding area, but Florida as a whole!

I'm thinking in the HUNDREDS.

We will have more than enough volunteers to put them up, I'm sure.

I will be a Lt. Marshal working Security (armed) at Paul Festival for the three days preceeding the Convention under Senior Marshal Oyate. I could use some help with lodging and food for these three days. If someone has a taser I could borrow I would love to have that option, but I can't afford to purchase one at this time.

I have quite a few more irons in the fire heating up as I write, but I don't want to let too much out because THEY don't need to know too much so THEY can't prepare any responses but have to deal with whatever we throw at them as it comes!

This chip-In is OPEN ENDED; what I am able to do and what happens in Florida and inside the RNC depends on how much is put in the pile.

Lastly, I don't want anyones' food money. If it would hurt you in any way to give, please just send me and e-mail of encouragement at psychictaxi@yahoo.com and spread the Chip-In link far and wide.

As the Title states, I can't Thank You all enough for whatever is sent, and I hope you enjoy my Presentation from the Inside, and hopefully much, much more.

Sincerely,

Ed Vallejo

First Update

Donations have come in, but I can't get the Chip-in to work right. I got an e-mail saying I needed a 'goal' on it, but when I put one on, I can't get the widget to read properly. I hope to have that fixed tomorrow, but so far here are the donations received so far:

$100 Chandler, AZ
$100 Phoenix, AZ "Ed - Thank you so much!! Wish you the best and you know you have all our support back here. Go get 'em! RON PAUL 2012 AND BEYOND! Melinda"
$20 Glendale, AZ
$50 Scottsdale, AZ
$15 Scottsdale, AZ
$50 Scottsdale, AZ
$5 Phoenix, AZ "Go Get'em Ed!"
$25 Sweet Springs, MO
$20 Surprise, AZ "Just sent $20 bucks. Hope it helps. Wish I could fund more."

YOU PEOPLE ROCK!

Thanks for the up comments and keep spreading the word!

Bump

Lets Go Tampa!

Let Tampa be The Shot heard around the World!

Yup, Ed is the real thing

A tireless activist and a great man to have as your friend. He'll be indispensable in Tampa in many ways. Your help in this matter is appreciated by many!

"It's about LIBERTY, not just the man."

There's a sign caption that might do well in Tampa.

Ed is the real deal. Help if you can.

As a former Arizona LP officer and liberty activist in the Ernie Hancock tradition, I can vouch for Ed's bona fides (assuming there's anyone here who hasn't run across his many contributions to the cause). There has been no harder worker in this campaign.

Good luck Ed, I know you've done great work

in the past. But a, uh, taser?

For Paul Festival

I want to BORROW a taser for working Security at Paul Fest. I won't be purchasing one unless the Chip-In were to somehow go into the bigger bucks. Anyone willing to lend me one PLEASE get ahold of me.

I'll be wearing my .40 cal, but I would rather not shoot inebriated attendees that get violent. If there was somewhere I could rent one, that would be great. (Not that I'm EXPECTING something like that to happen, but when working Security one must be prepared for any problems).

The money I seek is for assuring the live feed at a good stream, creating the banners (and other materials), food & lodging for working PaulFest, and other unnamed as of yet surprises that I hope to make real.

Thank you for the well-wishing,

Ed in Phoenix

For those who don't know your name,

I suggest changing the title to just Tampa Chip-In and see if that pulls better.
