Who To Blame For 5th of November...

If the MSM or anyone is upset over the RP movement drawing on a FICTIONAL movie based on a Vertigo/DC Comic's graphic novel, tell them to take it up with Warner Bros. who made the movie.

Warner Bros. can be reached at:

www.warnervideo.com

or

4000 Warner BLVD
Burbank, California 91522

(818) 954-1744, may be outdated number, but it's what Google has listed.

Also, tell them to talk to these people for creating the movie that spawned a movement and inspired a great fundraising idea:

James McTeigue (Director)
Andy and Larry Wachowski (Screenplay)
David Lloyd (Illustrated Original Graphic Novel)
Benjamin Waisbren (Executive Producer)
Joel Silver, Grant Hill, Andy & Larry Wachowski (Producers)

Additionally, it would be good to point out that this is not some leftist fringe movie. According to www.boxofficemojo.com (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=vforvendetta.htm) the movie made $70,511,035 domestically and $62,000,000 internationally for a grand total of $132,511,035 worldwide. Not to mention an additional Rental Gross of $48.30 million (as of 11/26/06).

We don't have time to waste explaining someone else's art and why it inspired us. Take it up with the artists! We've got some money to make!

Whoa what?

What's going on? Why are we freaking out? Who's wearing masks?

Jebus, people.

as a fan of comic books and the movie

I can attest to the fact that movie is more about freedom, civil liberties, and what happens when you live in a police state. I think it would be a fine day for paul, gravel, kucinich and other people who fight for civil liberties to rally their candidates. And while we don't live in a total police state, I'm not and I'm not a conspiracy theorist like the one's who crashed Bill Maher's show; our ideals may be opposed in many way to the other candidates mentioned, I love the idea of using Guy Fawkes Day as revolution day.

"we fear change, especially nickels"

As i've stated before

Its not the day or the donation I am resisting its the masks ,can you imagine the right wing smear machine thats looking to discredit us as a group of whatever they choose to deem us ........

To all the comments below...

And the people calling to put a stop to this 'revolution' within a 'revolution', by default - you're supporting the status-quo.

“Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it may be equally outraged by silence” ~ Henri Frederic Amiel (Swiss writer known for his masterpiece Journal intime, 1821-1881)

Guy Fawkes day, the 5th of November - has got NOTHING to do with conspiracies. In England its a celebrated day, I've been there when its taken place. It's like Halloween for America. Yet, Halloween also takes place in the UK, Australia etc.. (to a smaller degree obviously) Is that a conspiracy? Get real... what you see here, is Guy Fawkes day - migrating to America, just like Halloween did to the UK. This in fact, it has MUCH more Noble consequences & ideals. Get over yourself, this ain't hurting anyones campaign, its not officially attached to RP, so it can't hurt him, it can only INCREASE the awareness.

Your caution is warranted, but it is entirely misguided. As another said; "Have fun doing it!".

Please call this off

I am begging you all to reconsider ,it has been so hard to shake the conspiracy theory moniker and now that we've successfully done so we're going to do this ,I love Ron Paul and the campaign and have put in hours of my time and hundreds of dollars to prove this but I cringe when I think about this idea and the terrible coverage that will come from it .........

Remember remember the 5th of November Send $100

This is an EXCELLENT idea. The money bomb idea on the 5th of November sends the right message. ... and it tells MSM this man, Ron Paul, can pull in ten million in ONE DAY.

Don't be silly, go watch the movie, it has nothing to do with any conspiracy theory.

This has every thing to do with a REVOLUTION. Dig it . Embrace it, Enjoy it.

My only problem with this...

My only problem with this is that people should be donating NOW instead of on 9/5.

Halloween, heard of it?

There's this holiday called Halloween (Oct. 31st) here in the US where people dress up in masks all the time. It's actually the most popular holiday celebrated. No one gets bent out of shape. In fact, many people don't take down their Halloween stuff until a week or so after the holiday. Kinda like Christmas. Anyone who criticizes people for wearing masks on or around the holiday of Halloween are the ones who are going to get laughed at and mocked. The conspiracy of Halloween! That's like worrying someone is going to accuse you of worshiping Satan cause you participate! The worst that will happen is someone asking you if you don't realize that Halloween has passed. Lighten up and have some fun this Halloween! RP would want you to let everyone do what they want to do.

With all due respect

This has nothing to do with conspiracy theories. If anything it's just a bit of irony mixed into what is destined to become a coordinated donation of historical proportion. Any serious supporter of Ron Paul who is worried about this should carefully weigh the benefits of the HUGE amount of money being pledged as well as the HUGE publicity that may come from such a donation.

I have enough faith in Ron Paul supporters who may be questioned sbout this by any media outlet to clearly explain the true sentiment behind it, and it most certainly not a violent message.

maybe i'm over reacting

do you know who called for this ? Mark Koernke called for this mask idea on his radio show I mean I respect Mark ,Ive met him and hes a great guy but alot of people remember him being linked to the OKC bombing which is an insane assumption but do we really want to dredge up the past? Once again I think the donation is a GREAT IDEA and will donate myself but marching around with masks is not.Maybe im not seeing this like everyone else but I know others who feel the same way .

???

You must have no idea , at all, of who Guy Fawkes was, or What he stands for. Just donate the money. and if you need to learn about Fawkes....

I do agree to a certain extent....

I won't personally March around with a mask because I totally understand the need to limit negative associations, on the other hand....

Being in marketing for the last decade tells me that the publicity of something like that (provided there is NO VIOLENCE OR DAMAGE on the day by any Paul supporter) could be a huge media draw and considering that any time the MSM spends on Paul is another chance for people to be exposed to his name and ideas.

Think about the Parental Advisory Labels in the music industry, even semi-negative press has a potential to have that kind of reverse effect of creating more interest than we would have had in the first place.

I will support you

No matter what you guys decide to do I will support it but I will not participate ,I will donate on Nov 5th and deal with the fallout which hopefully will not be as bad as I envision it .......and don't forget to get your Ron Paul lit ready for halloween and pass it out to the parents .

Oh!myGod

Dude, are you for real?

"Who is John Galt?"

yes, but .

I think the donation is a fantastic idea its just that people are talking about running around in masks and I have to draw the line there , I just don't want to give those who people working so hard against us any ammunition ............I apologise for not being clearer but I've put alot of time into this .

V masks = unsmart

Let's just be ourselves.

Just watched the "Calling All American's - November 5, 2007" video! I get it, duh... If my name isn't on the no-fly-list, I'll be in Bavaria, Germany on November 5th. I'll plan to have my daughter make the $100 donation!

"Who is John Galt?"

Don't Forget

to have her make her own as well if she can! :)

Does this Govt really

Does this Govt/and press really believe that revolution cant happen here??
I'm all for being peaceful.........But Given human history, does this Govt think it can keep on growing and growing without consequence?
The 2nd Amendment is NOT about hunting.
I will go the peaceful route to the Nth degree, but in the end as a freeman, I reserve THE RIGHT to protect my freedom from Tyranny.

ie the Declaration of Independence
"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

The Govt and the press better wake up, this is not an abstract game we are playing here.

"I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical."
-Jefferson

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
-Jefferson

Restoring power to the people...

I was unsure of this idea becuase of the potential bad press and the violent means used to bring revolution. However, the main point of the V story is about restoring power to the people. So for those opposed to the idea, think of it that way.

That's true too. It's not

That's true too. It's not as if we have done/would do anything violent. I have heard the phrase "bloodless revolution" being used over and over and it's a good one in my humble opinion!

It a pretty legitimate day in politics

All by itself. A lot of local voting takes place on November 5th, right? At least it does here. Not sure that blaming a studio for our actions is the best bet.

Dr. Paul easily holds his own on these issues by saying he takes responsibility only for his actions. besides publicity is publicity in a lot of cases! (Just ask Britney Spears...)
