RON PAUL CAMPAIGN FUNDS: Do The MathSubmitted by humanic on Sat, 01/26/2008 - 22:40
Today is January 26th. The Ron Paul Campaign has asked us to get this quarter's donations total to $8400K by "Super Tuesday", February 5th. At the rate we are going today we will have donated a total of $55K by the end of the day. That means that we have nine more days to raise the remaining $4850K, ten if you include February 5th.
So, even if we include February 5th towards meeting our goal, this means we need an average of $485K per day starting tomorrow.
Yesterday we donated roughly $66K, 13.6% of this amount.
Today we donated roughly $55K, 11.3% of this amount.
To meet the goal the campaign has set, we will need to donate 8.85 times more money than we donated today every day for the next ten days. If we donate the same amount every day that we donated today, we will end up with $550K, 11.3% of what he asked for.
Some people are discussing another moneybomb. I have heard a number of dates, but the most talked about one seems to be February 1st. The "Free At Last"/MLK moneybomb was promoted vigorously for nearly a month-- much more than any moneybomb than will take place between now and February 5th can or will be promoted. That moneybomb also took place over a month after the last moneybomb, giving people time to save up and recover. This one, if it happens, will be less than two weeks after the "Free At Last" moneybomb.
Even if we have a money bomb which pulls in $1850K, the same amount as the last money bomb, we would still need another $333K per day on the other nine days, 6.01 times more money than we donated today.
This is not pessimism, this is not speculation. Everything in this article is an undisputed fact. I present this to you so that everyone can see the reality of where we are at and in the hopes that you will donate as much money you can afford and encourage others to do the same!
