Discussion/Plan "So they say Ron Paul supporter controlled GOPs can't make money' MONEYBOMBSubmitted by sailingaway on Sat, 01/05/2013 - 13:34
Ron Paul R3VOLution Lives MONEYBOMB
On the heels of stories saying Ron Paul supporters are dangerous controlling state GOPs because corporatist donors who expect to buy politicians won't give money (well, they put it a little differently) some of us were discussing having a money bomb to support 'our' GOPs (or pacs to make GOPs responsive to our grass roots in the states where we just barely missed enough votes to make them ours.) http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20130104/NEWS09/301...
The rough idea is a facebook page or web page (depending on what we can get up) where on a particular day people donate to the Ron Paul supporter controlled GOP chapter of their choice, such as Iowa, Nevada, etc or maybe to pacs supporting our candidates and party participation efforts in states where we barely missed taking the party (Maine, etc.) Maybe even to county chapters we won in states we didn't. (Parts of Missouri? etc.)
All of these entities chosen would be on a web page or facebook page and donations would be made through links on that page. I'm hoping someone would step up to create the ticker to count the total going to 'our' GOPs, but as the lowest tech alternative we could just go to 'our' parties and ask them to let us know a few times a day how much they got in donations. The bells and whistles would depend on how much support, tech-wise and organization wise, we put behind it.
There was enough support for this when I made a comment about it in some threads yesterday, here and at RPF, that I thought it was worth starting a thread for people to say if they would support it with time/money and to get ideas to make it better.
