you need to promote the money bomb


Download FriendBlaster from www.addnewfriends.com this will allow you to go to Ron Pauls friend page on myspace to automatically scan their user names. These names are saved then you ad the message you want to say and it sends it out to these people. He has 120k friends think if they all donated 50 dollars, and dont worry about spamming them they are already Paul supporters I am sure they wont mind getting informed of the next money bomb because not everyone visits these forums.
By the way I just sent 7 more messages since typing this.


This is my updated version of the MySpace bulletin.

This does not include a repost button since that will not work anymore, but it does include the video as an embed instead of a link.

I think it is best to keep the text as simple as it can be, the snazzy one seamed a bit cluttered to me (no offense intended at all).

I did shamelessly take text from the other one that I liked. :P

Messages need to be sent to at least the largest 500 Meetup groups. Will you help? It's a simple cut and paste operation.

Each person can send up to 25 messages per Meetup account/Email account. So, if you're willing to send out more than 25, you will need to establish additional accounts.

This is how:
1. Setup a new email account through something like mail.com or yahoo.com.
2. Setup a new Meetup account. Go here: http://www.meetup.com/register/
Note: It will ask you for your email account. Provide the new one you setup in #1. Note that you do NOT need to join a Meetup group, to be able to send out Meetup messages.
3. Go to http://ronpaul.meetup.com/about/ and select the Meetup group you want to send a message to.
4. Click on "Contact Me", which is under the Organizer's picture on the left hand side of the screen.
5. Paste the message that you want to send the Organizer and enter a subject. (Note: After you enter this once, it will be available for all subsequent messages you send).

AFTER SENDING OUT 25 MESSAGES, REPEAT STEPS 1-5.

================

Sample message:

Tomorrow, February 1, is the FiftyOneYears Ron Paul Money Bomb. The date was chosen to celebrate Dr. and Mrs. Paul's 51st anniversary. We are asking everyone to please donate at least $51 in celebration of this date and to give Dr. Paul the money he badly needs to campaign in the upcoming states.

If you'd like to pledge in advance, go to http://www.fiftyoneyears.com/
Otherwise, please remember to donate tomorrow. www.ronpaul2008.com/donate.

=================

To make sure we are not stepping all over each other and sending out messages to the same Meetup groups, could we please use this thread for each of us to indicate which Meetups we are taking. For example, the first person could say... I'll take 1-25. The next person, 26-50 and so on.


I was just browsing around ronpaulmeetup.com looking for a way to mass contact the meetups about the Feb 1st moneybomb when I noticed a page called "meetup alliance". This alliance consists of 333 meetup groups and 36782 members. It provides an e-mail address that can be used to contact the organizers, who could in turn contact all the meetup groups in this alliance.


here is the alliance address - http://www.meetupalliance.com/RonPaul2008

the e-mail to the alliance directors - RPMeetupAlliance@gmail.com




Made a Facebook group for the February 1st moneybomb.

Invite all your friends and spread the word!

I know, I spelled February wrong =(


http://aii.facebook.com/group.php?gid=12099851076&ref=nf


This seems like it would be an effective way to contact about 1/3 of the all the meetup members and notify them about Feb 1st.

TELL 50,000 PEOPLE ON FACEBOOK ABOUT THE TEAPARTY: Help me! It takes 60 seconds!!!!!
EDIT: Hey, if you're reading this, bump this topic for me. Thanks.


Alright, guys. The Tea Party is approaching. I need every one of you for this:

http://www.therobert.org/rp/fb/tp/index.php

Last time, I did something similar for Nov 5th, and it was a huge success (over 5,000 people contacted). Let's reach all 50,000 of Ron Paul's friends!!


Oh, also, one more thing. Facebook might get suspicious if the same message gets sent out thousands of times. So could you take this message, make lots of changes that make the message sound different, but each sentence say exactly the same? For example, you could change "Ron Paul raised $4.3 million" to "$4.3 million was raised by Ron Paul's supporters", etc. PM the new message to me. Here's the current one:

Quote:
Hi, fellow supporter! This is a long message, but read just this paragraph for the short version. On November 5th, $4.3 million was raised from individual Ron Paul supporters like you. This was the largest one-day fund raiser by a Republican in a primary race, and it earned us quite a bit of attention and respect. On December 16th, the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, Ron Paul supporters like you and I will raise $10 million in one day, and we will have coordinated the largest one-day political fundraiser in history. Without your donation, we will fail. With your donation, we might pull off the upset of the century, put Ron Paul in the White House, and restore liberty to every American. Join us on December 16th for the Tea Party 07:

http://www.TeaParty07.com

The Tea Party already has more subscribers than November 5th! If you can give $100, please sign up so we know where we stand. If you can't, please mark your calendar and don't forget to scrape up as much as you can on December 16th!

We need your every single ounce of effort on this one. This will be Ron Paul's last chance. When the Tea Party succeeds, we will be the frontrunner in fundraising out of ALL the political candidates, Republican or Democratic. The media attention will be stupendous, and Ron Paul will finally have the means to run a truly national campaign. This is essential, because the primaries are only a few weeks away, and only 30% of primary goers have even HEARD of Ron Paul. But this is good news! With Ron Paul already polling at almost 10%, this means that one-third of the people who have heard of him will be voting for him. Imagine how high his polling would reach if we can get the message to another 30%, 60% or 90% of likely primary voters!

Ron Paul needs the media exposure from having the largest fundraiser in history, as well as the actual money it will bring in. If we pull this off, Ron Paul will have the entire media dedicated to just him for the entire day; it will be a deal-breaker for his candidacy: we MUST succeed.

Please post this video on a Facebook bulletin: http://youtube.com/watch?v=IsDlO2Lr_cg (this is VERY effective). Please tell all friends, family, and liberty-loving individuals that this is the last chance to restore America to its Constitutional basis; to end the war, to stop corruption of our liberties and rights, and to make sure in 2008 your ballot isn't "Clinton or Giuliani". If you know people who haven't heard about Ron Paul, tell them about this amazing individual:

http://RonPaulIsHope.com

If they're a Democrat concerned about the war, point them to RonPaulIsPeace.com and note that even Clinton and Obama have refused to commit to be out of Iraq by 2013. And whoever you tell about Dr. Paul, ask them to donate on December 16th as a personal favor to you instead of getting you a Christmas present this year! Remember, even $1 donations bring up the total number of donors, an equally significant figure.

This Facebook message was sent to you by a fellow supporter like yourself. We have already reached @SENT@ of over 50,000 of Ron Paul's Facebook friends! To help reach everyone (it takes just a minute), visit this webpage:

http://therobert.org/rp/fb/tp

This is truly our last chance. However, with your help, it won't be our last "chance"; it will be yet another victory for the American people.

TO VICTORY!

You are receiving this message from a fellow supporter (not the official campaign) because you are a member of Ron Paul's Facebook group.


OK..to quote the theme song from Smokey and the Bandit "We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there."

But -- we have fantastic resources available to help facilitate the Feb 1st Bomb(s) going VIRAL.

I can't do this alone; therefore we need a viral squad - a concerted effort by all of us - to indundate, 24/7, the following websites:

1)Myspace - Create bulletins including hotlinks (see instructions below) to 51years.com, fauxnewsmoneybomb.com, ronpaul2008.com and here at ronpaulforums. Also include the all-important copy and repost notation.

2)Facebook - I don't use Facebook. I only know it's a huge social networking community.

3)YouTube - Aside from nuking RP videos, hit up Romney/McCain/Huck/Ghoul as well AND YouTube's most popular, nonpolitical videos (fan made films, music videos etc.).

4)Any place else you can think of! - Anywhere you can spread E-ink, do it! News articles, other message boards, Digg etc.

***HTML hotlinks to 51years.com, fauxnewsmoneybomb.com, ronpaul2008.com, and here, ronpaulforums.com***

So you have contacted all of your Meetup members, Myspace friends, Facebook buddies, Youtube pals, message board companions and email contacts.

Here's 5 more things you can do online to increase the pot:

1)Email your local Constitution Party (http://www.constitutionparty.com/view_states.php).

2)Email your local Libertarian Party (http://www.lp.org/organization/states.shtml).

3)Email your local GOP Party (http://www.gop.com/States/).

4) Email one Anti-War Organization.

5)Make phone calls to friends/family.

We should see an upswing on the graphs at 3 a.m. PST.

TulsaRevolution

The current pace looks like we are looking at a $1.0 million to $1.75 million day, probably somewhere between 1.25 and 1.5 unless this day suddenly starts behaveing differently than other moneybombs.

Any day that reaches $1 million should be considered a huge huge HUGE success.

When they wake up in the morning, every single person on Ron Paul's e-mail list will know about it. They sent this out late last night:


January 31, 2008


We know that many of you already are aware that Friday is Ron and Carol's 51st wedding anniversary. We thought now might be a nice time to share a little bit of their wedding story, from the words of Carol Paul.

"I actually came into the picture about 1952 when Ron was my escort to my 16th birthday party. Don't tell anyone - but I asked him... actually my birthday is February 29th and it was a Sadie Hawkins-type party where the girls asked the boys... and I asked him.

...

"We went away to college (different colleges in different states), but always kept in touch. On February 1, 1957, we married in an all-white wedding with the bridesmaids carrying armloads of red roses. The flower girl wore a white dress and sprinkled rose petals down the aisle. A fraternity brother of Ron's sang "The Wedding Prayer" and the "Lord's Prayer." Both are very special to us, even today.

"We spent his last semester in college married, and living on the third floor of an old home in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. For one year Ron was manager of the college coffee shop called "The Bullet Hole." He worked as steward and house manager for his fraternity, and had a small scholastic scholarship to help finance his way through college.

You can read more about Ron and Carol's life story in her article, "The American Dream," on our website.

For those of you who will be contributing on Friday in honor of Ron and Carol's many loving years together, we've included an added bonus: Everyone who contributes at least $201 (since Friday is, after all, 2/01) will get to write a personalized anniversary message to Ron and Carol!

In the coming days, we'll display some of these messages on our website, and we're also going to present every one of them, along with your names, as a gift to Ron and Carol!

Thank you in advance for your help in giving Ron Paul one big fundraising and media push before Super Tuesday! https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate

By the way, I totally agree-- we need these forums to have moneybomb spam on them all day tomorrow. It is critical-- we'll have a flood of new donors.

Ron Paul has never mentioned a specific dollar amount in his e-mails. For the Tea Party, he mentioned the night before that he would enjoy his tea on Sunday.

They also tied in that wedding note thing with every $201 donation-- because it is 2/01.

Do you realize that if 40,000 people do this, it nets the campaign 8.4 million?

The question is-- how many people are on the list, and how many aren't maxed out?

I agree. Keep promoting it through tomorrow. If you guys and gals want me to donate tomorrow, I've got to go to bed.

*** BTW, we need our own PLUNGE PROTECTION TEAM to keep these money bombs moving along at a decent rate during the early morning hours when most are asleep. For those watching during the nighttime hours, count yourselves appointed as Ron's PPT! :) Try to keep the rate of this money bomb moving at about $400 per minute until about 0800 EST, ok?
I'm only PARTLY joking. ;)
