Help Ron Paul Raise $10 Million
There is a pledge going around to raise $10 million for Ron Paul by September 16th:
The goal is for 10,000 people to donate $1,000. When I first saw it, I was skeptical. A thousand bucks is a lot of money, and 10,000 - is a lot of people.
But then I got to thinking - this is not much at all! Three months is ninety days...which works out to about $11 and change per day per person. That's about what it costs to have lunch and a coffee these days (at least in Boston - it is expensive out here!). Not that I go out to lunch every day, of course - but the point is that for most people to make this kind of donation, it will require some kind of sacrifice. But that is okay by me, because to sacrifice means to make sacred.
I think that most Americans, and most citizens throughout the world would agree that the principles America was founded upon are sacred - worthy of our deep reverence and respect.
As a nation, we're losing sight of the original vision and goal. Ron Paul is one of the few bright candles to have kept the flame of liberty burning. He is our last, best chance to return the country to its founding principles. If not him, then who? If not now, then when?
Considering the circumstances, I think we can all afford to make some sacrifices and come up with $1,000 by September, which is why I signed the petition, and I'm asking you to do the same.
To success, and the restoration of the Republic!
