Ron Paul Money Bomb Exploding ($1 million @ 9:30am)
USAdaily ^ | 11/5/07 | Larry Fester

Posted on 11/05/2007 7:26:30 AM PST by traviskicks

Ron Paul's presidential campaign is getting cash infusion today from grass roots activists on the internet. The activists plan to get 100,000 people to donate $100 each, boosting the campaign by 10 million dollars in a day.

Whether the goal of 10 million dollars in a day is achieved remains to be seen. The campaign as of 10 PM Sunday night had risen just under 2.8 million for the quarter.

As of Monday, 9:30 AM Eastern time, Paul’s campaign has risen over a million dollars bringing the total to over 4.1 million for the quarter.

Paul’s campaign raised over 5 million in the third quarter and had over 5 million cash on hand at the start of this quarter.

The one day fund raising push is already a success and it hasn’t shown any signs of losing momentum. Paul’s campaign had nothing to do with the grass roots effort which makes it even more impressive.

Ron Paul voted against the Iraq war and says he will bring the troops home immediately. Paul seeks to eliminate federal income taxes and wants to reform the monetary system by authorizing competing currencies backed by gold and silver.

Paul also voted against the Patriot Act and has been an outspoken defender of the Bill of Rights.

We just passed $7 million.

Incredible. We're at $3.91M for the day.

We'll just break $4 million for the day at midnight Eastern, now only 15 minutes away.

Not a bad fund raising day for a few techno geeks with cell phones, eh? It’s great to see the most authentic, conservative Republican running getting this kind of grassroot support.

Thank you for your service and your comments. I agree with your opinion of Ron Paul. I am going to donate another $100 in your (silent) honor.

HUZZAAAH!!!! 7 Million and counting!!!

Who do you think he’ll choose as his VP once he’s president?

I hope Mike Huckabee.

Those two would make a fantastic team. Tom Tancredo would be fantastic too! Or Hunter!

Hey, when is the last time we’ve had so many good people vying for the nomination?

11:55! It’s at 7,068,932.16!!!

I can’t keep up it’s going so fast! :o)

George, I fell asleep. Was up all night watching the banner. Its amost 1pm here in Asia. Midnight in NYC. GREAT DAY FOR RON PAUL.

You guys did a hell of a job.

EEE,

What can the haters say now? Guess it wasn’t a bunch of sixteen year olds all this time spamming polls for RP. He not only wins some of these polls but he turns these real people who support him into opening up his wallets.

I hope the MSM gives him some headlines on this instead of burying it on the 5th page.

If McCain, Huckabee and some of these others raised 20 thousand dollars in a day, the whole world would know about it. Love the media blackout.

4 million plus, WOW!!

It's not about winning, it's about changing the nature of the debate. Thanks to Paul, Republicans will no longer talk about "tax credits, vouchers, or holding the line on spending." They're going to talk about abolishing entire obsolete bureaucracies, agencies, and at least reforming the tax code. And being more cautious on foreign policy and protecting our sovereignty.

Thank you for making that point. It's worth a few bucks to give voice to someone who actually speaks his mind about true conservatism.

Who do you think he’ll choose as his VP once he’s president?

Walter Williams, the economist who subs for Rush, has endorsed him and Ron Paul said, when asked who he'd pick, "someone like Walter Williams". Or Mark Sanford, our best young governor. Perhaps our best goveror period. Well, Haley Barbour gets high marks over Katrina, no doubt.

Mike Huckabee is a loser, but a smart pick for Paul would be Mark Sanford of SC. Both of them served together in Congress, and are good friends.

We need to get Paul in there with his tough stance on certain issues, along with Huckabee with his ability to strongly sway Values Voters - and Hitlery won’t stand a chance.

I’m just sad no 2K plus dollar donations came from rich chinese dishwashers or busboys. Hillary already tapped into that market.

We had to settle for real people making real donations no matter what the size.

Lets hope he converts these dollars into primary wins!!!!

I read on his YouTube channel that the amounts that were coming in per hour went over the amount they can process, so by the time all the dust settles the total amount will be even higher.

TEEHEE: "No matter what happens with Paul’s campaign, there are a few million newly energized genies out of the bottle who are motivated to further the cause of individual freedom in this nation. Most rockin’."

Exactly. Well put.

Ron Paul is the only person running for president right now that I would even seriously consider voting for. I’m planning to make my donation (Lord willing) in December right before the first few primaries. And you can be dang sure I’m planning to vote for him in the primary on Super Tuesday too.

Who’s Mark Sanford of SC? Never heard of him. I’m sure he’d be great since you recommended him, but

Sanford is a conservative-libertarian Governor of SC, perfect compliment to Paul. He's young too and has executive experience. He's very well-known I'm surprised you haven't heard of him. He once brought two piglets into the SC legislature because they were overspending.

We need to get Paul in there with his tough stance on certain issues, along with Huckabee with his ability to strongly sway Values Voters - and Hitlery won’t stand a chance.

Huckabee adds nothing to the ticket, except for big-government nanny-statism & open borders, and he has ethics problems. Paul is personally a social conservative, so he has that base already in his pocket.

I’m noticing lots of Californians sending money in right now.

Do you think it could have anything to do with their wanting to do away with public schools over there?

Afterall, the governor just signed into law SB 777 where even kindergarteners will be force-fed positive portrayals of transvestites, transsexuals, homosexuals, etc.

Imagine helping your kid with THAT kind of homework....

TIME TO GET THE KIDS OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND GET RON PAUL INTO THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!

I'll vote for Paul in the primaries, but I'm also being realistic. My support for him is because he's moving the GOP back to its traditional roots and he's restoring the old Reagan coalition. Now his foreign policy does make me nervous though. I don't think we should pull out immediately from Iraq.

The lame stream media can no longer pick who will be the next President. Most of the people supporting Ron Paul don't even watch them. Yes, the action is indeed online. The MSM will soon realize they are irrelevant and powerless to push their agenda.

I’m partially with you on that, EEE.

Does Ron Paul realize that Islamic Fundies hate Christians and Jews, calling them infidels? They want us all dead because we don’t follow Islam and honor Allah.

I hear Paul say they’re upset because we’ve bothered their bee hive. Does he think we were supposed to do nothing when 911 happened?

That’s my main disconnect with Paul, but maybe I just haven’t heard him address that fully yet.

Regardless of how unpopular the war is, until Iraq gets back on an even keel we need to stay there and clean up our mess.
My step-son just returned from his third tour over there with the Marines. He doesn’t want to go back and we here at home don’t want him over there either so we need to let the Iraqis run their own country. If they turn it back into another tyrannous hell-hole... Well, it’s their hole.

I thought it would be of interest to mention that a staunch constiuency for Ron Paul are traditional Roman Catholics.

For example, in this online poll from a group that is not very hardcore, mainly SSPX and indult types, Ron Paul is polling 60%.

Among Sede Vacantists, from my own informal contacts, his backing is almost a perfect 100%.

The key to understanding this strong affinity for Ron Paul among this group is that those who appreciate the fact that one cannot alter the Faith also value that one must uphold the Constitution or else any concept of law or governance is meaningless.

In addition, the two abiding moral issues for traditional Roman Catholics are absolute anti-abortion as well as ending a never-ending series of wars entered into for unjust and untruthful reasons - in which our sons and daughters serve as cannon fodder to further the agenda of the neo-cons. Ron Paul is the only candidate who fulfills both of these moral necessities.

It certainly sounds like he has alot of real support!

I think the elites are shaking over the power of the internet, since they thought they had locked things up with McCain-Feingold.

Now, if the 18-21yr old block votes, this nation may be rocked to its core and we might see a true 'glorious revoluton' for this nation.

He's getting a lot of press right now (finally). It's going to be hard for the MSM who seem to have the candidates already picked out to ignore what is happening. And the coolest part is, it's grassroots - real people giving, not special interests, PACS, crooks, etc like we usually see from some candidates. I've been reading comments on YT and other places, and it's a lot of people of all ages, giving small amounts. Some people are even giving just 10 dollars...lol. But it definitely added up today.

Thanks for posting the articles. Saves me time from searching.

I’m with you. I don’t care if someone gave a dollar, it means more to me as a supporter of RP than some lobbyist, PAC, etc funneling him 100K dollars. As I posted earlier, I just wish Hillary hadn’t tapped into all those rich chinese dish washers, waiters, line cooks and busboys. Those guys could afford donating the maximum amount and it would have been more money to RP.

Exactly what giving is suppose to represent, true grassroots support.

This may be America's last chance to field a candidate that actually wants to govern by the Constitution and does not consider it a relic.

This election will be in the hands of the 18-21yr olds, the ones who are going to have to deal with Social Security and the crises of America's debts.

“Ron Paul has refused the “very generous” congressional pension. So to make this kind of charge against him is rather dumb.”

This brings up a good point. Why does Congress have one retirement plan and the general public has “social security”?

Yet, they won’t allow the gp to privatize their social security funds.

You’re welcome, and I feel the same way about the money meaning more because it comes from many individuals - many who have never given to a campaign before. (and I’m glad I’m not the only one here who likes Paul, even though I haven’t even officially decided on who i’m voting for. :p)
