Donations from stolen credit cards

Paul Returns Donations From Stolen Cards
Overseas Thieves Apparently Used Presidential Campaign To Test Stolen Credit Cards
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/11/08/politics/main34727...
BTW, the same occurred to me this spring. My card was not stolen, but somebody got my credit card data's and tried to ransack my account.
They got through with a small test purchase of $ 7.99, but a second and third attempt of $ 2 000 transactions was prevented.

How the internet helps 'fringe' news outlets like CBS...

...and ignorant reporters like Greenberg and Couric...

Good press.

There is another good story about Ron Paul by the Christian Science Monitor. It was posted about 8 hours ago, and the writer mentioned something that is very important - possibly a great goal to set. Below is part of what the writer posted:

"On Monday, an independent effort by Paul backers raised a stunning $4.2 million for his campaign, nearly all of it online. At the rate Paul is going, he will have a fourth-quarter funding total that rivals or even surpasses the top-tier GOP candidates."

The cat is out of the bag now. We not only must reach 12 million at the end of the quarter - we should go for the attainable goal of making Ron Paul the number 1 fundraiser for the last quarter of 2007. The media will not be able to resist reporting that Ron Paul outraised all of his Republican rivals. This goal is reachable. Let's do it! I'm ready to double or triple my November 5 donation to make this happen.

Go Ron Paul!!!

This november 11th

will dump another 300 fiats. I can wait to see the neo-con faces. What a bunch of idiots LOL.

Just for fun

I predict over 9 Million by Monday.

Then we will only need $3 million more to meet our goal in over a month and a half later. And we will still have the December 16th fundraiser which should hopefully be even bigger than the November 5th one.

If we surpass $12 million, Ron Paul will be in really good shape for the primaries.

And let it continue.

This is excellent.
Ron Paul is getting some good coverage. Much needed.
I have been talking to people and they are generally disgusted with the fact that they have never heard anything about Ron Paul and his support on the popular media sources.
After the great success with the November 5 fund raising effort many people heard of him probably for the first time. That is what a converted friend told me. He said "last night after that fund raiser was the first time I have ever heard him speak. I can't believe it. Why don't they have him on tv more?"
I told him that corporate USA does not want him to win and have him blacked out of the media.
Soooo. First impressions are lasting ones.
With that in mind I would like to present this article. I disagree with most of the allegations like the spam etc. But I do agree that there are some frustrated people out there that have been working for or hoping for liberty for a long time. Since before the libertarian bid for the presidency in 1988. It is understandable that by now they are frustrated and are not going to take it anymore.
We must be civil however. Anger will kill us. It is time to take a deep breath and convert our frustrations into positive energy.
Now I know that these types of articles are, in many cases, attempts to discredit the revolution. However, civility will win the day. We can't project the image of a bunch of angry bomb shelter owners.
I have had my own problems with cynical correspondence. But I have gotten much better. I don't much care for media types such as BO and SH. Yet I can be kinder than they appear to be. To everyone.
Just remember that life sucks for every one now and then. Not just you. Your not alone in your dismay.
Only love can conquer hate? I'm not so sure. But let's try it out and see if it works.
We can start with "only civility will conquer hate".

I pitied him in his blindness, but could I boast I see?
Perhaps there walks a spirit, close by that pities me.

I'm slightly confused...

I keep hearing from some MSM sources that Hilary, Romney and Obama had better one day fund raisers. It is awesome to know that neither Hilary nor Romney have stake to this claim, but no one has given an accurate figure for what Obama's best day was. Does anyone have this figure?

FEC

says those were not true numbers because they were pledges not full donations.

Hillary had 1.6M and Mitt had 3.1 so Paul bested both...

The Press Are Lazy and Quote Themselves

Instead of doing their own research.

If you watched the campaign's press conference on Tuesday, the Paul campaign told the press that the claims the others made were not backed up by their FEC reports. In other words, the Paul campaign fact-checked for them.

The incorrect quotes you see are old news, repeated, without correction.

Ron Paul is as principled as they come, but he's been hanging around politicians and he's no dummy. I think it's amazing that he is having fun and fighting smart, knowing what he's up against.

The other campaigns lie, twist and spin. The press quote them, and pretty soon everybody believes it's the truth.

You would think the press would stop believing the others, but they don't seem to be as smart as Ron Paul. We, for the rest of our lives, should do the fact-checking, and hold everyone to a higher standard. I love the Internet!

The Rest of the Story

I haven't seen one single figure of Obama's number. BUT I do know that Romney only got 3.1 million in donations, the rest were all PLEDGES. But he keeps on lying to the people and saying he got 6million. On the same token Hillary Clinton had fund-raisers for about a 5 day period and the total of them adds up to what she CLAIMS she got on June 30th. If you look at the numbers for Hillary, she ALWAYS (3 times) has HUGE days on the last day of the Fundraising Quarter. hmmmm This is from a woman who is known to "cook the books" when it comes to money. They are all liars, and Ron Paul put his numbers out for the world to see and in almost real time. It's hard to put them out in true real time when the credit card companies and paypal couldn't keep up!

As Paul Harvey would say, "And now you know the rest of the story."

And until I see Obama's numbers and know the facts I have to assume they are full of crap on that one too.

What to do with the money.

Tell the story.

Write and produce a TV commercial explaining why most people have never heard of Ron Paul. Use the MSM to out the MSM. Highlight the fact of how hard it is to show well in local and national polls when they leave your name off the list of choices. Tell how the media either censors news about you or puts its' own negative spin on it. Hit the viewers with some bullet points about why big business and big money does not want your message heard, but let the voters find out for themselves by telling them to do their own research.
How? With the tag line "Google Ron Paul".
