Ron Paul asked for our help, please don't let them bury this post again.

Day after day I have watched the level of discussion and the quality of the posts here on the DP deteriorate. It has gotten to the point that a request from Ron Paul for donations to help delegates get to the convention is being ignored, while posts about psychotropic drugs and talking cats make the front page. Sure none of us know what the hell is going on behind the scenes...but we have every reason to TRUST Ron Paul (spare me the asinine"I trust Ron Paul but not the camapign" argument you silly trolls). We are in the home stretch so can we please finish what we ALL started. All we ever wanted was a shot, no matter how long so why in God's name would we give up NOW.

Dr. Paul sent the following requesting donations to help delegates get to Tampa. I ask everyone to please read, bump, spread and donate.

"Dear Liberty Activist As you know, the Republican National Convention is right around the corner From the beginning, I’ve said this convention in Tampa will be a critical step for our R3VOLUTION. That’s why I’ve instructed my campaign staff to offer financial assistance to our delegates who otherwise wouldn't be able to make it in order to ensure every one of them can reach Tampa But in order to make this a reality, can I count on you to please make a generous contribution to help as many of our campaign’s delegates as possible make it to the Republican National Convention? As you know, the establishment hasn’t just sat still and quietly watched us take over party chapters and rack up delegates Their opposition has required our campaign to spend resources in Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, and Oregon to defend our gains and defeat their challenges. And with August just around the corner, we want to make sure we can cover expenses for delegates that need help reaching the convention Your contribution will be put directly toward transportation, lodging, and other costs associated with getting these delegates to Tampa...."

For keeping it "real"....this place is like a ghost-town when you're looking for true RP Patriots.

If that good ol' ticker showed up here for a week

I bet we could get $250-500k. How does one go about getting that ticker up on the Dailypaul? If the cost to delegates is a real limiting factor we should take this seriously.

Does the campaign still have the $3M surplus?

I'm just asking: What have they done with that money? What are they intending to do with that money? We have a right to know at this point in the campaign. The best thing to do with it would be to help delegates get to Tampa. Give each of them a grand to help with the cost; that is money well spent, IMO. Make the right decision this time Jesse Benton.

500 delegates X $1,000 = $500,000.

Nope

No, you don't have a right to know all their plans, any more than any random Romney campaign staffer has a right to know what RP plans to do with the money. If you've chosen to contribute, it's no strings attached. You don't get to tell the campaign what to do or be privy to their secrets. Get over it. Wait and see. Have some patience. Enough already...

"Cash on hand" does not equate to "surplus", and in that point your post is extremely misleading.

Kong Vault: Thanks!

You've just stated what many supporters were thinking.
A "presumptive" DPer I'd say.

Maybe he was fishing for funds to pay for Gilbert Grape his buddy? LOL!
Thanks Again.

Bump!

President Ron Paul!

For some reason, the campaign

For some reason, the campaign is not helping many delegates. Maybe it's best for you to start a chip in if you want real money.

Take A Second Mortage Out On The Half Million Home Benton Bought

You know with the money that piece of shit got overpaid with from our donation money to get Ron elected? That money? I was a state delegate in a battle ground state where we had the vote stolen, and we still won the delegation. This campaign isn't getting another fucking dime from me. I didn't donate over a thousand dollars this primary season so sleazeball Jesse could have a 600 sq foot master bedroom.

Ron has no one to blame but himself for letting the nepotistic bullshit get this far.

Bump!

Here we come Tampa!!!!

Thank you.

Bump to you my friend

(If your post falls off the first page, I would be strongly inclined to ask a moderator to bump it. (or you could repost it. :)
