FEC may help 51 years bomb!

I just called the FEC and I have a feeling that February 1st will be a big day for RP in a number of ways. They told me that the presidential 4th quarter donation results would be released at about 12:01 EST on Feb 1st (tonight). On the heels of this good news our bomb may go exceedingly well!!

Nooo...

You don't have to be elegible to vote to contribute. You have to be a US Citizen or Green Card holder.

People whose voting rights have been suspended because of a conviction, and children who have money of their own, can contribute to federal campaigns IF they are Citizens or Green Carders.

And the gift idea from inelegible donors is bad. First, if Ron accepted them and then used the money as his own in the campaign, that would be a "straw man" contribution, just as illegal as giving your children money to contribute in their name after you've maxed.

And, knowing RP, it's probable that he'd pass any such gifts on to his favorite charities. He just won't do anything that could have a problem in it.

I am going to donate $51 Dr. Paul and another $51 for Mrs. Paul.

Please pull out the penny jars and make a donation tomorrow. These money bombs are about the only time Dr. Paul gets positive coverage from all the media, anymore. So we should take advantage.

Dont get think I am dumb...

but could we have given the money straight to Paul since it is an anniversary gift? Then people from other countries could have donated right? Just popped into my head...i am probably wrong.

you don't have to be

you don't have to be American to give money to a campaign. You just can't give more than $2,300

Yes...

You have to be eligible to vote in America in order to donate to a campaign.

I would say that anyone around the world can send a nice card with an anniversary present in it...AS LONG AS IT IS ONLY AN ANNIVERSARY CARD...and there is nothing expected in return whatsoever.

I have found no laws saying a candidate cannot receive a present for his anniversary. Might be nice to send a card with a little present and a note telling him to "buy something nice for yourself."

You can donate even if you have a green card

but cannot vote. So, you need to be US citizen to vote but can donate even if you have green card because on the ronpaul2008.com/donate it says under eligibility section : "I am a United States citizen or a lawfully-admitted permanent resident."

But when I looked at the voting restrictions, tou have to be a citizen.

Hope this clarifies and helps.

at least try

This is going to be the last money bomb before the Feb. 5th deadline in which Ron Paul has set for 8 million. I don't think anyone would argue that the 8 million goal will not be reached in time. Since this is the last money bomb everyone has to give him enough money to at least come close. Point being we have to at least try for the man. He is trying for us.

51 years wont even hit 1 million

stop doing the moneybomb thing. cant we agree to give up on these if we dont hit one million?

i know a few of my friends wait for the next one, sometimes miss it, then just decide to wait for the next one. most people arent involved in this campaign every hour of every day like we are. hell half my friends in vegas that caucused for him didnt even know there was another moneybomb after the teaparty.

WRONG... well over a million.

Spread the word. We have been doing really well these last few days... 80-90k + and yesterday was over 125...

Email and call all your friends and let them know. You know who you need to call, so call em.

I have been working on family and friends... those who don't like donating don't mind buying stuff from the store or pledging to buy his book. Do it all.

Money is Money!

Money is money! What do you care that a money bomb is out? If it raises $1000, who cares? That's $1000 more than we had yesterday. Besides, we made almost $2,000,000 just two weeks ago in the last money bomb. So what do you mean give up if we don't hit one million? What is it with some of you people? Don't you realize you basically saying to new comers "Don't donate!" Because that is exactly what you're saying when you say "Stop with the money bombs!"

If you don't want to donate during a money bomb, then don't -- but many new comers donate ONLY to the money bombs because they think it's fun and have never heard of it before. Nearly 1/3 of the donors were NEW from the last money bomb. They want to be a part of something because they haven't tried it before. If anything, you need to tell everyone to donate to it -- especially since your friends have never even heard of it after the tea party. My friends all know what's going on because I tell them all -- which is exactly what you should do too.

Ease up on the "stop with the money bomb" thing my friend, because any amount helps now. Sorry if I come off a little upset, but we need the cash and whether it be money bomb or a normal day, money is money. :-)

Let us hope the 51 money bomb explodes big time

I personally feel positive about this effort. It think it is the best theme for a fund raiser since V for Vendetta.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

McCain Was In the Hole by Over a Million

At the end of the 4th quarter, he was in the hole by over a $1 million.

I'll bet the others were, too. This is where we can comb the reports for information on where the money goes and where it comes from.

4th quarter FEC report

All the campaigns must file a report to the FEC of how much they made in the 4th quarter. We stomped everyone and it's coming out tonight at midnight!

Everyone?

Obama is reporting $32 million+ just for the month of January. Eight times what grassroots has given Dr. Paul.

who cares... he's on the

who cares... he's on the dark side! his 32million will not prevent us from getting our nomination!

bumptastic... because to simply say "bump" is apparently spam!!

LOL. It's not spam...

It's just against forum rules to bump your own thread.
