3rd Party Money Bomb, Best Polling Gets Funds

I get the feeling that many Ron Paul supporters would be more likely to support a third party candidate as long as we could agree on one candidate to support.
If this is true, please reply to this post by stating how much you'd be willing to contribute to a Third Party Money Bomb.
Basically the funds in the money bomb would be for a 527 (or whatever it's called) and the decision on which of the four tickets the money would support would be based on the results of a scientific poll taken on a certain date.
Is this a workable or even desirable approach to unifying our support?

to give money to anyone it should be the ron paul people running for congress. the presidential election is a waste as we dont have a chance to win anyways. as far as presidential picks. pick who you like and vote for him or her. congress is we we should be focusing on monetatrily

I donated to get Paul on the ticket and to win! No Paul, no cash

I *might* vote for a third party, but all my money is going toward empowering myself.

I suggest we all do the same.

We are so weak a people that the government walks all over us. Making ourselves stronger will make it much harder for that government to exist.

While some may like this idea, I don't....

I would never agree to spend/donate my money, knowing it could go to someone I do not support...I also don't trust polls....it's been shown too many times how easily they can be rigged...I think people should just donate to whomever they support....

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

I agree

I agree that polls are biased, that's why some of the money bomb funds would be used to pay for an honest poll.
Also, while this fund wouldn't appeal to me personally, if more than half the population doesn't vote then I'd think that even a portion of those people donating $1 on a single day would help to break the Dem-Rep duopoly.

First you guys have to understand the Constitution

and the electors that paul4won is trying to tell us:

Passed by Congress December 9, 1803. Ratified June 15, 1804.

Note: A portion of Article II, section 1 of the Constitution was superseded by the 12th amendment.

The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate; -- the President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted; -- The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. [And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President. --]* The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.
