Its "Money Bomb" Time!

We have worked unceasingly for the Ron Paul Campaigns and the Liberty Movement. We donated and set world records in supporting the message of liberty. The biggest lesson the Good Doctor taught us was TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF LIBERTY. In his humility, Dr. Paul would tell us that he did not even see himself as the greatest messenger for it was the message itself that attracted people.

We are right now blessed to have Ben Swann and his team working on furthering the message of peace, prosperity, and freedom.



Here is Ben Swann's latest message:

((we either win or loose: there are no in-betweens))

It would be awesome if the author would update the link from kickstater to

Kickstarter wasn't working out so Ben set up this instead.

We can win if we focus on winning people over.

(Here is a repost of an idea I posted on DP several times.I think Ben Swann would be a great spokesperson/narrator for such videos/ads.)
If we had a large enough amount of people in America and the world united behind our shared principles, and demanded strict adherence to said principles over politics or parties,then the politicians would truly have to represent us or find themselves out of a job and irrelevant.

We can make progress every single day if we focus on winning hearts and minds. Here is a suggestion on how to do it: We get one or two great short ads/videos that promote our shared values of truth, freedom, and peace. Just picture a short video explaining why we should bring our troops home, have sound money, cut taxes and spending, balance the budget, end the drug war and give power to the individual while promoting truth, freedom, peace, non-aggression and voluntary humanitarian help to our fellow man.

Then we have a money bomb only to DIRECTLY purchase airtime for said ad/video. We vote with our dollars on which video is best.Then we have a "time bomb"(lol) where we all donate our time and focus our efforts spreading the video on facebook, twitter, youtube etc. Keeping it front page on the DP would surely help. Imagine if for a period of time, let's say a month, the front page of Daily Paul was dedicated to an effort to spread a video that promoted all the principles we share. The video could also include a link or mention of DP sending new people here to join in the effort. Then we fine tune our efforts to make sure we are winning people over. And as long as we see it is working, we NEVER stop.

With the "time bomb" method, we could make our message go viral on the internet, nationwide and worldwide, without asking people for money. With the right videos and a united effort by us, I am convinced this would work. In my opinion, this is how we win.

Anyone got a better idea? I'm all ears.

Let's get it on!

Both of which need to be kept alive. :)

Ben Swann has earned my respect and trust for his past work, while at least somewhat fettered by the MSM machine, if only on an affiliate level.

This will sound sappy, I'm sure, but I feel that Ben is the last, best hope for restoring the "4th Estate" to what it was supposed to be, even if it never was.

He certainly has charisma and good looks, and I believe he has integrity (the most important thing, IMO). He could become a new role model for future journalists, IMO.

Just open the box and see

Come on Everyone!!!

It's for our freedom he is working for!!! What would the founding father's do?

Doubled my pledge and donated through Paypal

Keep it up people.

Do it now or do when you get paid, but...

...just do it.

Go to and make a pledge. You aren't getting charged for the Kickstarter thing so just pledge the same amount through paypal on the top right corner of the website. Feels good, get yourself some.

We need this.

"Put your money where your mouth is" ... Lets go people!!


As Ben said in that youtube video... put your money where your mouth is!

Let's go folks! I already moved my $100 from Kickstarter over to Paypal. Throw in what you can!

I donated tonight

Let's hope Ben gets enough for at least the 20 episodes he was hoping to create w/ the 250K in pledges he had received. Hopefully more money will come in after he does the excellent job that he always does.

I really hope this succeeds because it would be a horrible sign that we can't even support real media.

Yes. Yes! Yes!!!

Was thinking the same thing today when I read his email.
I'm going to paypayl now.

I will spread this. I am a little confused by the video though.

I received a phone call in the middle of watching. Did he say that the pledges will be returned if he does not receive the $1.2 million and that he would not go forth? But then he also said to move your pledge over to paypal? I will go back and watch this again. We need more of the BenSwan folks in media..... Thanks for posting.

Credit cards aren't charged if goal isn't met

There isn't any "returning" of money since the credit cards don't get charged the moment you pledge. The Kickstarter platform just retains the credit card and pledge amount information until the end of the campaign date. At that time, if the goal is met then the credit cards will be charged for the amount pledged. If the goal is not met, no charge is made and your pledge will not be carried out by the Kickstarter platform. At that point it would be up to you to go to Ben's website to donate directly using his Paypal link.

"Moving your pledge" is just shorthand for carrying out your pledge promise by waiting until the Kickstarter campaign officially ends without meeting goal or canceling the Kickstarter pledge before the campaign ends and donating directly to Ben.

If you make the donation by this Friday, Ben will honor reward equivalents offered during the Kickstarter campaign.

It's the same message

that has been on the Main Page all afternoon. I'm all for supporting it, and one of those that need to change my donation destination.

I'm glad Ben realized that he can't throw a high bar 'all or nothing' I need it all now pledge to the growing number of people that get it.

I donated 2400 dollars to Ron Paul's 2008 presidential run, and now the RNC hired team calls me all the time reading a script about Obama. Never mentioning ANYTHING but WE MUST BEAT THE DEMOCRATS.

I don't regret sending the money then as we all bought recognition to ourselves.

Ben is bringing truth to a lot of people in a way others can't. I support him.


He's going forward

Without hitting the kickstarter goals...
