How much money does it take?

How many thousands to build the ad? How many hundreds of thousands, or millions, to make a reasonable impression on the American people? In the end, is it reasonable that spending the money will change the way the Republican Convention is run? Will it get Ron Paul nominated?

The Ron Paul campaign does not have unlimited funds. Contributions have dried up (they were drying up DURING the primaries). The money bombs were bombing. While he's not broke, he cannot pretend to compete, financially, with Romney or Obama for the attention of the average American tv viewer.

Don't waste resources. Keep your powder dry for when it will be needed to take advantage of real opportunities. I don't know what or when that opportunity will be...but there is no point in blowing whatever wad they have left on a futile enterprise.
