Ron Paul raises $9 million in 2 months
Seattle Times ^ | 11/23/07

Posted on 11/24/2007 9:22:29 AM PST by traviskicks

In another sign of Rep. Ron Paul's online fundraising prowess, the Republican presidential candidate from Texas said in a TV interview Friday that he has raised more than $9 million during the past two months and expects to raise a total of at least $12 million for the fourth quarter.

Paul, speaking on Bloomberg Television's "Political Capital with Al Hunt," said he considers his recent fundraising success "astounding."

He added that his campaign plans another "special" fundraising day Dec. 16. On Nov. 5, Paul supporters raised $4.3 million, one of the biggest single-day showings of any candidate in history.

Too bad his goal was 10 mil by Nov 5th. Spin as hard as you want Paulbots. Paul failed to hit his targets.

So how much of this is bundled Soro, and other Leftists fat cats, money intent of using Paul as a political Trojan Horse in the Republican primaries?

It may that most of this is leftist money from people precommitted to HRC. Still anti-GWB people see things in Paul they like even if they fear his defense positions.

Let’s see what Ron Paul has to say......

QUESTIONER: “Congressman, if you were not running, right now, for office, is there a current candidate that you would identify with most and who would you vote for yourself?”

RP: “... there’s been some that hinted that they might run... that’s Chuck Hagel... I don’t know a lot about his other programs, but because foreign policy to me is so important”

“... on the Democratic side, it just happens that Dennis Kucinich is a good friend of mine”

Why should YOU vote for Ron Paul?

Assalaamu Alaikum Brothers and Sisters,

You can help by sharing and sending this note to all the Muslims you know as well as by registering as a Republican and voting for Ron Paul in the Republican primaries in your state. Here’s why: Muslims and Americans have an unique window of opportunity for the 2008 election. There is a candidate running as a Republican that would work to completely cut off the funding to Israel, remove ALL US troops from Arab lands, and repeal the Patriot Act. He’s a Republican with Libertarian views named Ron Paul. Ron Paul’s policies ranging from monetary to foreign are top notch.

Till now Muslims and Americans have not had an American Presidential candidate that really suited their best interests. This election is unique in that we have a man running as a Republican that speaks the truth. Much of the our foreign policy in the Middle East has been influenced heavily by AIPAC, the pro-Israeli lobby, to the detriment of Muslims in the Middle East. As American Muslims, we are blessed to live in the US where we have the freedom to let our policymakers know how we feel about foreign policy; we may not have the power of an influential lobby but we do have the right to vote and every single vote counts. We know the current policies in the Middle East are failing, not only making it less safe in the world but hurting and killing innocent Muslims, which our media callously calls collateral damage. It is our duty as Muslims to follow the truth regardless of how futile it may seem. Ron Paul is the only candidate that does not seem to be swayed by the influential lobbies that the other candidates are catering to. .

Brothers and Sisters, please vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Primaries. It’s our obligation to come together and try to stand up for not only our best interests, but the best interests of the entire Ummah. Living here in the West, we are obligated to do so. Otherwise, we are partly to blame for all the actions our government takes in our name.

American Muslims must RISE and UNITE. Let your voice be heard. InshAllah (God-willing), we can spread the word and make a difference.

Went to the Texas A & M - Texas game. The best team (and school) won.

We took back country roads to College Station and saw more than one RON PAUL signs on farms. And some supporters on campus.

Ron Paul is hugely popular in rural Texas.

Also - for all his faults he actually did poll quite well for a while - Paul and his internet army of spammers still don’t register nationally, nor in the overwhelming majority of individual states.

He’s going to crash and burn, and then push his weight behind a non GOP candidate.

Johnnie, you're simply a horse's behind. You've been told a million times that the $10 million goal was set by the grassroots, not by the Paul campaign. Paul's campaign had nothing to do with the November 5th money bomb.

So how much of this is bundled Soro, and other Leftists fat cats, money intent of using Paul as a political Trojan Horse in the Republican primaries?

All of Paul's contributions are from individuals. CORPORATE & FOREIGN DONATIONS ARE ILLEGAL, YOU TWIT!

Why did the video stop in mid sentence after "on the Democratic side, it just happens that Dennis Kucinich is a good friend of mine.....”?

Is it because Ron Paul went on to say something like " but I couldn't support him for president due to his unconstitutional positions." Just curious.

That's priceless, now you're telling us what Ron didn't say? LOL

Ron and Dennis vote alike more often than not.

H CON RES 21 BILL TITLE: Calling on the United Nations Security Council to charge Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with violating the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and the United Nations Charter because of his calls for the destruction of the State of Israel

Final Vote: 411 YEAS, 2 NAYS, 11 “PRESENT,” 8 NV.

Who are those two “nays?” None other than Congressmen Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. H RES 548

H RES 557 BILL TITLE: Strongly condemning the United Nations Human Rights Council for ignoring severe human rights abuses in various countries, while choosing to unfairly target Israel by including it as the only country permanently placed on the Council’s agenda

Final Vote: 416 YEAS, 2 NAYS, 14 NV.

Who are those two “nays?” You guessed it–Congressmen Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.

A truther’s letter to DailyKOS users to get them to support Ron Paul:

“If we want to get a Democrat in the White House next year, we need a divided Republican party. The only candidate on the enemy’s side disrupting neo-con group-think is Ron Paul. If we donate to him on the 16th of Dec. and attempt to support him in the primaries, he can force Mr. 9/11 on the defensive and make him spend much more money to win the primaries. His fundraising is surging, and his poll numbers are trending upward. He clearly has some momentum, and that’s scaring the pants off the neo-con establishment.

Divide and conquer the Republican party my friends! Donate money to Ron Paul on the 16th of December and register Republican for the primaries to vote Paul, then back to Democrat afterwards. This will accomplish many things:

1. It will divide the party further and create an ideological insurgency within the party.

2. It will show our Democratic front runners that being anti-war is a winning issue this year, we don’t have to be neo-con-lite like Hillary to win. We don’t need to stay in Iraq till 2013.

3. It will dry up the resources of Republican frontrunners and weaken their support for neo-con issues like invasion of privacy, torture, the war, and more.

4. It will completely scare the crap out of the party establishment, and they’ll likely go into crisis mode to stop Paul.”

Ron Paul gets support from many segments of society: Conspiracy Theorists, Racist Neo-nazis, Liberals, Democrats, Greens, Libertarians...He just can’t get support from REPUBLICANS.

Ron Paul will not “win” in the traditional sense (ie getting sworn into office as POTUS) but he can score a bigger win by slapping statists and populists in the GOP around for amusement.

This kind of cash insures that he will be there for the duration to do just that.

Exactly. Paul's support is from the left. A recent polled asked who would Republicans never support under any circumstance. Paul scored highest with 61%.

According to this recent CNN Poll, Paul has the highest negatives,

Question: “Would you consider supporting Ron Paul for the republican nomination or would you not support him for the nomination under any circumstances?” Ron Paul 61%

OK. If that's true and you want to put a quick end to Ron Paul, just go on these forums and start praising Paul for being pro-life, pro-borders and US sovereignty, anti-tax, anti-global warming hysteria and anti Gubmint entitlement programs.

All of those "loons" will run for the hills and he will have zero support. Go to work. Let us know how it works out.

Odd how the same Freepers who loudly claim to be “not be a Paulbot” always the 1st to leap to Paul’s defense.

If Paul’s support is so broad based that it can raise this sort of money without tapping Soros type fat cats, how it that this supposed “wide spread” support is not being reflected in any of the polling data?

AuntB, I know and respect you from the various border threads. On this matter, you simply do not know what you are talking about.

1. Illegal aliens are not hugely popular in Texas. They are hugely unpopular.

2. Paul has been and is strongly against illegal aliens. He has written about this extensively and sponsored and co-sponsored numerous pieces of legislation of that issue, such as ending birthright citizenship.

3. The Texas straw poll was restricted to party insiders (recent convention goers, elected officials, and maybe a few others). As a 30 year Republican primary voter, I was not allowed to vote.

The Texas Republican Party is free to conduct its polls however it wants, but if all that it wanted to know was who its insiders supported, there were much simpler ways to go about it. This poll tells no one anything about what is likely to happen in the Republican primary. Those who claim that this poll somehow means that Ron Paul can't win the Texas primary are either ignorant or being disingenuous.

Which one are you?

Ron Paul has never produced one piece of effective legislation that did anything to control illegal immigration. In fact Paul has never gotten any of his legislation through the process. Ever. He has NO support or endorsement from his congressional colleagues. His claim of small government is just that, nothing but a claim.

Ron Paul has proved he can’t ‘govern’. He has a zero record of accomplishments, except for pushing 1876 bills others wrote through congress. Small government guy?

Just for comparison of actual accomplishments in congress:

Sponsored means he wrote or introduced the bill. Co sponsors sign on to other bills written by someone else.

Statistics: Duncan Hunter has sponsored 105 bills since Jan 7, 1997, of which 72 haven’t made it out of committee (Average)

and 10 were successfully enacted (Good, relative to peers).

Hunter has co-sponsored 894 bills during the same time period (Average, relative to peers).

Now take a look at Ron Paul, who claims many ‘accomplishments’ and would never vote for any frivolous, unconstitutional bill!

Statistics: Ronald Paul has sponsored 346 bills since Jan 7, 1997, of which 341 haven’t made it out of committee (Extremely Poor) and 0 were successfully enacted .(Average, relative to peers).

Paul has co-sponsored 1876 bills during the same time period (Average, relative to peers)
NOTE: 1876 bills, written by other congress members. All ‘constitutional’ ? You decide.

No, not what he didn't say but what he obviously was in the middle of saying but the tape cuts off in mid-sentence.

As to the UN votes, Ron Paul does not believe that the UN should exist, or if it does that the United States should be part of it. Any vote which concedes or implies moral authority to the UN is wrong. Ron Paul's votes are morally and constitutionally correct.

I neither know nor care why Kucinich voted the way that he did.

Your attempts to smear Ron Paul are becoming more and more desperate. Why?

From what I have heard, his campaign staffers are a bunch of bumbling idiots. Here was a story about that by our resident token “Republican” columnist in the Democratic People’s Republic of NJ who endorsed Ron Paul..

http://blog.nj.com/njv_paul_mulshine/2007/11/no_news_is_bad_news.html

Members of the public, whether right-wing or left-wing, tend to believe that the members of the press are conspiring to suppress their views. In some instances this may be true, but this case provides a textbook study in how politicians, through their own incompetence, can bungle media coverage.

I found that out when I attended the rally to look for possible material for future columns. The bungling began when I showed up for what I had been told by Paul’s staff was a press conference set for 12:15 at a hotel near the rally site. There was a nice room with a podium and even coffee on the side. One thing was missing, though: The press. I expected to see 20 or 30 reporters, but there were only two.

Maybe the others were on their way, I figured. Nope. At about 12:20, Paul’s campaign chairman, Kent Snyder, abruptly informed us that there would be no press conference and that we should clear out so the candidate could meet with some contributors. When the journalists tried to ask the candidate a few questions, Snyder rudely interrupted them.

Stop the flip-flopping and try to stick to one logically consistent and factually accurate position.

Is it your position that Ron Paul has good ideas but lacks the leadership ability to see them implemented? That would at least be a respectable opinion which could be honestly debated.

Or is it your position that Ron Paul has bad ideas which you are grateful have never been implemented, and you are determined to continue to work ato keep his ideas from becoming reality?

Your flip-flopping, flailing away efforts to smear Ron Paul are becoming increasingly desperate. Why?

Hmmm $9 million /2300.00 per person = about 4,000 donors. Assuming 1% of his supporters donated, that come out to be about 4,000,000

That means Paul is only 60,000,000 votes short of winning the Presidency.

9 Million, great for him. The campaigns goal was to raise 12 Million in the 4Q. According to “daily RP graph”, they may end up with 17 Million.

I know the supporter who was responsible for setting up the Nov 5th fundraiser was hoping to raise 10 million in one day. Well, 4.2M may not be 10M, but it sure made for a great day.

I also noticed that RP has 20K plus supporters signed up for the 16th of Dec. Sure would like them to surpass the 5th of Nov., amount. Should be a fun day.

"Big deal. Howard Dean was supposedly a fund raising giant and we all know what happened there...."


In the long run, Howard had a bigger political impact than Kerry. His supporters took over the apparatus of the Democratic Party. It is highly unlikely that Paul will win the GOP nomination, but if his followers stick it out they can have a long term political influence.
