The Only Money Bomb That Counts!!!

HQ is requesting a $5M "boost" between now and the 5th of Feb.

Please, let this be your 'money bomb'. The money is needed NOW for advertising in the 22 or so states that will be voting on the 5th.

Don't hesitate and don't wait. Spread the word to all the Meetups and Networking sites, coalition groups, blogs, and YouTube.

I don't mean to take away from the other 6 or so moneybombs people have set up -- you can stil donate to those -- but please, give what you can NOW, time is of the essence.

Yes it's great to have the attention that a one-day fundraiser brings, but now, it's the amount that is needed to carry RP through Super Tuesday. Imagine having to coordinate and pay for all this action in 22 states? It's mind-boggling.

What you can, when you can

Feb 1st is a Friday, so many will have their paydays then. Send in your $51+ then when you get paid, but if you can skip some luxuries between now and then, do so! Forget the Starbucks, don't eat out, sell that thing-a-ma-jig that's been in your garage forever on eBay, etc. Whatever you profit and save, send it in!

The reality is

This goal relies on a high volume of people donating. All emphasis should be on volume ... There are also competing money bombs, and kind of a goofy theme with the fifty-one thing ...Part of the reason the tea party worked out so well was because it was a cool theme that very much fit with the themes of the Paul campaign; it was also building off the momentum of the first fundraiser, and had a month or so to get spread around the web.

There are none of these advantages this time. We should just scrap themes at this point, send out mass e-mails through the meetup groups, and tell everyone it's do or die time and it's extremely important that they donate as much as they can on Feb 1.

absolutely agree

I absolutely agree. dont wait till feb 1st etc.. thats too late. they need the money now.

Feb 1st MONEY BOMB!

www.FiftyOneYears.com

Dr. and Mrs. Paul will celebrate their 51st Anniversary on Feb 1. Let's honor them by pledging all we can. The goal is for 100,000 freedom-loving people to pledge $51 each for a total of $5.1 million. Many of fighting for this cause are very young and not financially capable of this, so if you have the means, please donate for yourself and a few other of our friends.

Cheers to you all! Keep up the good work.

must go NOW

no time to waste!

Tell everyone you know time is short

Has this been sent out to every Meet-Up group yet?

Maxed Out!

I'm maxed out at $2300. Does anyone know if my S-Corp can donate if I am sole owner and employee?

A couple of critiques for Dr. Paul and his advisers regarding debates. If you want to be Presidential you have to act Presidential...just speak to the American people as if you were already the President. Less "Austrian Economics" and more "High Gas Prices". Less "Senator Taft" and more "McCAIN BELTWAY INSIDER." No more Mr. Nice Guy!!

Speak concepts with fewer words per minute because we Americans are kinda dumb :)

Dr. Paul wounded McCain in SC. That was a genius move. Keep poking McCain and keep talking straight w/ the American people and then, perhaps the people will wake up from their media induced stupor.

I'm in for the long haul though my "bombing" days seem to be over :(

FM4DRP-

Nope

As I understand it, McCain-Feingold prohibits corporate entities of any kind from donating directly to a political campaign. Your S-Corp MAY be able to give to a PAC, but even on that I'm not completely sure.

I find it so interesting

I find it so interesting that politicians use laws as a way of promoting themselves. Why use McCain-Feingold as the name instead of something like "Citizen Only Donations"? They name these laws after themselves just to get more free promotion - well, we (the taxpayers) actually pay for it, so I suppose it's not free (for us) anyhow.

...

For folks that are maxed out.

Does anyone know if the max amount you can donate is restarted at the beginning of the the new year, 2008?

What about family members giving via our cedit cards??

Great question but I have another one a long that line.

My children would like to donate to this Internet Fund using my credit card, because they haven't one and then reimburse me with cash. Is this legal to do and what is the maximum amount per child or spouse??

Family

Each family member, including spouse, can give $2300.

I wish the new year (2008) meant I could donate again, but it doesn't -- I've been maxxed out since last June... how frustrating is it to HAVE the money and not be able to give? Thank you Soros/McCain/Feingold

Other side of the coin.

I have two children and wife who do what they can but we can't earn the money for Ron.
I'm nearly maxed out. I take on new jobs and donate and I'm bloody tired and sick, but I won't stop. Let no one say I didn't do my bit.
My daughter can't pay medical for our grandson but I pick that up so I can't ask her to pay for RP although she wants to help. My son is working two jobs to try and get through collage and still has sent $200 to the good Doctor.
If we had the money we would contribute, but we are the new poor. We can't!
I can get overtime and put $100 a month in for RP. I've donated to every money bomb. But I'm the other side of the coin. The law says I can contribute but knows I don't have the money. Old Mitt can throw in what he wants.
Damn these politians. They buy us like we are slaves!
They walk all over us while smiling.
Go RON!

Watch and feel the power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

February 1, 1957 was/is a very special day!!

First, the year 1957 corresponds to the english word "SING"

Second, in non-leap years - such as 1957 - 2/01 is always 191 days from another very special day, August 11th.

There's a mathematical proof embedded in the prime number system that reveals August 11th as the birth of our Lord God Jesus Christ in 6 BC.

191 is the conjunctive prime root of the english word God (764) = 191 prime X 4

Very special indeed!

Something really to "sing" about and celebrate!!

Peace and God Bless!

This is IT!

If you can only donate $5, do it! This is what we are going for now! The campaign needs the money to spread the word. If everyone that came to this site gave $5, no telling where we would be.

I would also suggest emailing all of the people in your address book. Tell them about why it is so important to give to Ron Paul now. There might be someone you know that is a supporter, but doesn't get to pages like dailypaul or even the headquarters main site on a daily basis. Email everyone you know with why you like Dr. Paul, and why $5 would go a long way. Make sure to include a link in your email to the donation page. You will be amazed to know that if you just ask, people will usually be willing to donate. Get that word out! As you know, we can't rely on the media to do it!! Go Ron Paul!

give

NOW...later it too late.

Thank YOU!

Please please please! This may be your last chance to show the world what support is out there...

Money Bomb

There needs to be an organized money bomb. It's much, much, much, much more effective. Someone organize it. I heard Feb 1 given as date. Tell Trevor Lyman.

Never mind that!

There is no time to wait for a 'day'.
If you have it, give it now. Period. End of story.
Money bombs were great for the initial fundraising but now it needs to be a steady stream.

$$$

No more planning! Just SEND THE MONEY! Tell every Ron Paul supporter. Later is too late! I'm going to stop posting now because it's a waste of time that could be spent convincing someone to DONATE!

Ron and Carol's 51st Anniversary would be perfect

Listen People,
If we give 5 million on February 1st, which is Ron and Carol's 51st Wedding Anniversary, the positive media coverage would be an enormous boost to the campaign. It would show that we and Ron and his family are all about family values.

TOO LATE!

That is too late! They need the money WELL in advance in order to plan out and purchase advertising slots. If you wait till four days from the 5th, it will be too late. DONATE NOW!

The grassroots (not all of us, I know) shortchanged Dr. Paul on MLK day. It's time to get behind him now, not in another week.

Can they put the actual Gold $8.4 Million "Ticker" on Main Page?

Jane, can they put the actual Gold $8.4 Million "Ticker" Request up on the Main Page for all to see? Seeing this at the top of the main page of the Daily Paul should encourage more people to give if they actually see the graphics.

Ron Paul for President 2008 !!!

give now...

later it too late.

Yes, Mike can you do this?

I will ask Mike to do that...as it's quite a huge thing to put there.
Really, the problem with moneybombs is I think I've seen 3 or 4 separate ones, so that is going to dilute any ONE effort. And the money was needed LONG BEFORE THIS.

So please, just let the widget on the official Ron Paul website be your bomb location, and do it now! There are only 10 days to Super Tuesday and I'm sure they've had to make arrangements to buy ads in all those states ahead of time.
