Military Donations Graph - Puts Things Into Perspective

My First Post To The Daily Paul and My Contribution to the Campaign
This graph was made to bring awareness to all voters and to provoke people to think about who they should consider voting for. Many are surprised to learn who raises the most money from our active duty but it's no surprise to Ron Paul supporters. I hope you all enjoy.

My sources for these numbers including a bunch of different charts can be found on my website at RonPaulRonPaul.com

MAKE SURE YOU PLEDGE TO THE UPCOMING VETERANS DAY "SUPPORT THEM NOW" MONEY BOMB FOR RON PAUL AT SUPPORTTHEMNOW.COM

I would also like to give credit to Ron Paul Products who formed a design group that created the Ron Paul Super Brochure and asked to have this graph included. The team helped me clean this graph up.

I highly recommend everyone check out these brochures and get some to hand out to people. They are huge brochures and look beautiful! They aim to have 1 million of these printed to be distributed throughout the early voting states.

More can be read about these brochures on the Ron Paul forums at: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?323280-RonPaulProducts.com-THE-SUPER-BROCHURE-FOR-.07-or-less!!!!!

Also, I am working on printing poster sized graphs to be mounted to foam board and made available for people setting up Ron Paul info booths and/or voter registration booths.

We're trying to put together a kit with all the materials needed for those who want to setup an info booth in their area or at events.

Please contact me by email: revolution @ Ron Paul Ron Paul dot com if you're interested or have some creative input.

I remembered now what I ran across

Remember you asked me what was it I was tickled over that was included? I reread it and it was under Ron Paul Facts: ~ As a physician, routinely lowered fees or worked for free.

Perfectly wedged between Duke University and "Champion of the Constitution". :)

I always thought the fact that RP practices what he preaches needed to be highlighted.

I love the facts portion: you'd have to be soul-less to not be interested after reading them.

Glad I ran into you and picked up some brochures. The brochures are going to blow my county's sox off.

Excellent

I had to link your site and graph to reddit:

Well done and good luck!

Send these links with the following question?

What do members of the US military know that you don't know?

or to your military friends

Who does the military trust most?

Then direct them to the support them now website.

Lets go troops!

Look what happens when you

Look what happens when you share the website on facebook:

It's like a teaser, they have to click it because they think their candidate is somewhere in the top tier. Maybe in their top tier. haha

Freak me out, you made me cry :)

The Super Brochure is totally rad. It is full on perfect. Every little thing I would think to add as I was reading, I found it. It almost became a mental game trying to find what was left out. :) I LOVE IT! I'm turning my SC peeps on to it raaat now.

Another graph

Perhaps we should make another graph excluding Ron Paul to distribute to the media and let them run with it. They would make a big deal of it because Romney would be on top.

Then we kindly let them and everyone else know what Ron Paul's numbers are. They will have already established that it was important and will have a hard time downplaying it.

Excellent

Thank you

Great Flyer!! (tri-fold) I

Great Flyer!! (tri-fold) I was looking at the PDF version.. (just a heads up, a couple words are incorrect, or missing letters) One of the best handouts i've seen!!

As far as I know they were

As far as I know they were made aware of those typos before they went to print. They probably haven't updated those previews yet.

Thanks for catching that though, it's super important.

send the mistakes to ronpaulproducts.com

they take that type of into to improve it's quality.

UPDATE I talked to Erik

UPDATE
I talked to Erik Petroni last night, the guy who created the super brochure. He said all changes/edits have been made and the new low res pdf of the brochure will be uploaded at RonPaulProducts.com at roughly 5pm today Oct 31.

This project goes to print today, out of the 250,000 being printed there are only 50,000 remaining.

Another 250,000 will be printed later in the week. Please place orders now to ensure availability. Order Ron Paul Super Brochure HERE

Already pre-ordered a thousand of those puppies, hurry up plz.

Individual Donors

Excellent post! Thank you.

If anyone has the details of total number of donors for each of the campaigns, that would be a great graph, too.

Wow!

Thanks for the latest military contribution info. I am writing a series of letters about Ron Paul to our local newspaper and this is an important topic I think, so I'll be able to use it soon!

2ndfor1st - question regarding the #s

On the jpg you show $113,639 for total contributions but on the graphs where you compare Q2 and Q3, it shows $107,579.

I'm assuming the difference is what was donated Q1 2011, before Dr. Paul announced he was running. Is that correct?

thank you.

Actually.....

Sort answer: They are Q3 numbers but it was an earlier count before the official campaign released their numbers. I need to update them.

Long answer:
I made a few graphs right when the FEC Q3 numbers were released (Oct 15), before the campaign released their press release.

Many members (active duty included) of the RP Forums volunteered to count all the totals for employers and originally came to a figure close to $75k as well but after taking closer look at how the employers were listed it was questionable if some of them were retired or reserve when they abbreviated.

I believe that those from the forum who counted the numbers were correct to omit those questionable employers in the list. They were more concerned about being 100% certain that those counted were in fact active duty than reaching a higher number.

But after the campaign released their numbers I updated most of the graphs to $75k for Q3 and probably should have made it $75k+.

Does that make sense? Hope I clarified that... :)

so the $113,639 is more accurate

from what I gather from your note. thx.

Yes

That's per the campaigns press release.

AWESOME!

Those brochures are UNBELIEVABLE! I just ordered 1000 of them. They're BY FAR the best I've ever seen.

visuals

are always more effective.
