It's Do or Die for the Ron Paul Blimp (24 hrs)

Folks, we have 24 hrs to raise $215,000 to keep the blimp going through Super Tuesday. So far we are 44% there! If you haven't noticed, the blimp is worth millions if you just consider the media that it has generated (even if it had never taken off). Please consider the following links and videos and make your voice heard. Do you want this Blimp to keep going?

Here is where you go to sponsor it:
http://www.ronpaulblimp.com/

* Trevor Lyman heads up the Blimp team--so you can rest assured that the money will go towards amazing Ron Paul efforts no matter what happens. So, even if we don't reach our goal---the money will keep the blimp going for a longer period of time--and, worse case, the money will be transfered toward smaller projects, like mini-blimps and targeted TV adds if we don't make it. I know we can do this folks...but it's up to you. Do your own investigation--don't let the doubters dominate the debate--make up your own mind.

Peace

Edit the total

I just knocked $100 off the total

awesome

If we can just spread this through the meetup groups - we can do this. One thing to remember is that there is no time to get something up and rolling that is this BIG - the team has already done all of the leg work w/ lawyers and all---the blimp is up and running---there is no cost for development or time to be wasted building something or forming a project. The blimp just needs folks to sponsor it--that's all. If we can only just get this word out---we will have no problem keeping it going. Remember to tell folks that those who have maxed out official donations can donate w/out any limit.

We need $20,000,000

for the campaign in two weeks. Can you scrap the blimp, sell it for parts and give the campaign a few million?

I guess

you have never read anything on the blimp, don't know anything about it at all, and have no concept of costs in the real world, how political advertising works, or even money.

The blimp is rented, with a crew that must be paid for and banners that are already bought and paid for. The grassroots is getting the blimp for a really sweet deal -- it would normally cost quite a bit more.

Please spread your ignorance elsewhere.

And I guess you are Lee Atwater!!

...SCRAP THE BLIMP..

DONATE TO T.V. OR PRINT ADS.. OR GIVE TO OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN!!

duh..

time for strategic

time for strategic deployment of assets...

I refuse to use Paypal or Google Checkout so how can I donate?

Send a check or mail order to Liberty Political Advertising ...

This was posted before on the Ron Paul Blimp website -- I insisted to them that they needed to put up an address for people to send checks to. I can't find it now on the site (they changed a lot lately), but I saved the address. Send a check or money order to:

LIBERTY POLITICAL ADVERTISING
129 Bleachery Boulevard, #50
Asheville, NC 28805

(I have used this address myself, and it's good)

.

Where's that billionaire said to be for Ron Paul.

How about the Daytona 500

We have a project ready to go, reach a national audience, create a heck of buzz and conversation over all demographics, has a controlled cost and need the support fast. We found a Delaware Foundation to accept the donations and have teams available to place the message.

Of course we love the blimp but if its to expensive we can make good use of the funds.

Thanks

Ive kicked in a lot so far

My only doubt is that the blimp flew all over SC and we got 4% there. I think it's a great inspiration for the supporters, but have doubts about bringing on actual voters. I'll go a little more, but we need to start thinking beyond the blimp.

Through Super Tuesday

I always felt the committment to first get the blimp in the air and then keep it up through 2/5 was admirable. I just gave another $50. Viva la blimp!

blimp is worth millions?

The speculated value of advertising in millions would be for actual ads. These are not ads but just newsclip mention of the blimp. The blimp says google Ron Paul. Would we pay millions of dollars for an ad saying that?
Also, is the blimp floating over huge audiences, stadiums, like were posted on the blimps original website?

here is a stadium flyover

Sweeeet!

Love the video you sent. OK in for another $100 . . . not sure if this is the best way to go but if in some way helps I'm all in.

True we can't know the exact value

We can't be certain ever of exact value---when you look at the partial list of media coverage above in the original post---that is huge for name recognition. ..and when the media who cover the blimp find out that the campaign has nothing to do with it, it really makes an impact when they see such passion.
--as far as stadiums---I know it flew around the Capital One Bowl and something else...Even more people see TV clips though.

time to deploy money strategically

contribute to the campaign directly

P.S. applies to other distractions

If people are maxed out they can contribute to blimp

Spread this PLEASE!

Tell those you know who have maxed out that the Blimp is still an option
(unlimited)!

Whooohoooo..That is some

Whooohoooo..That is some beautiful website! Wow..thanks for the invite..

Dude the blimp isn't tied down

It can be moved between states.

wow

wow, some of you guys are so negative - The point is, the blimp increases name recognition and coverage of Ron Paul - and 1000s and 1000s actually see it in the air. I include that SC clip because it makes the point that local media EAT THE BLIMP UP! They love it. Try thinking outside of the box--the point isn't SC - The blimp is in Florida right now anyway.

The Blimp MUST Survive.

It is a manifestation of unshakeable commitment and support for our future President! It literally flies in the face of the MSM! They have so little time. Remember our excitement? Remember the question, "What IF...?" I think every citizen deserves a chance to see the blimp at least once! Come on, grassroots!
