View Full Version : LESS than $10,000 to go to $300,000 on DAY TWO!!

GOGOGOGO!!! Almost broke $300k and there's less than an hour left to get that last $10k in !!!


edit:


for those of you just tuning in, we broke $300,000 in donations in less than 1.5 days. To put that into perspective, the "top tier" candidate John Edwards started his donation drive 5 days ago and has barely topped over $400,000. We were able to do 3/4th of that amount within less than 1.5 days. And the momentum has just started, as many of us have yet to see the drive or call / email our friends!

Although we were roughly $500 short of hitting the forum goal of 12:00 AM EST at $300,000 it is debatable that the margin of error on the time was off by 10 minutes. Either way, it is still well under one and one half of a day - amazing!!

Remember, no matter what your television tries to tell you - they cannot hide, mislead, or lie about your donation! This cannot be ignored.

Hurry people. Dr. Paul really needs our help. We should spare no expense. I have already sold my house and all of my stocks in the name of liberty. I am currently living in my car, but I figure I can get by with eating muffin tops for a little while, but I did keep a pistol in my glove compartment to defend my property. Do you know the new slogan that Nike uses? Leave nothing! That's what we should be doing with all of our income. I have and I lead by example. Spare no expense people. Now is not the time to get cheap! Dr. Paul needs all of our money and if you have to sell all of your assets in order to donate then you should do it. If he doesn't win the government will take it all away from you anyway in the form of higher taxes so you might as well go all out. Now let's get to $300,000 in the next 10 minutes!

The campaign needs to ad a message to that graphic that is bombastic and inspiring. Have Ron give a comment about how amazed he is about the determination and generosity of his supporters that is demonstrated by their ability to raise funds. Obviously he knows this, but it will serve to motivate those who are more passive supporters

This will only serve to motivate more folks to make an incremental donation.

Giuliani supporters donate money because they see he is the frontrunner in the polls.

Paul supporters donate because they believe so strongly in Ron's message they would donate a kidney if they felt it would help him get elected. Our supporters are 10,000x as passionate.

Ron's supporters truly love America, love his message and are more than willing to sacrifice blood and treasure to further the campaign.

Does anyone here honestly think any supporters are willing to lay it all on the line to support Rudy Giuliani??????? Are his supporters willing to give up some luxuries or any seemingly small sum of money ($25) to help the Giuliani campaign? One of the best part about Ron's campaign is that you know when you give up $25 which is a huge sacrifice to a lot of folks, that you trust that Ron's campaign will spend it very wisely, and treasure your sacrifice---not blow it on a retarded consultant that isn't necessary.

That's why we'll be satisfied with our Q3 fundraising. Because people will give that extra bit knowing full well the campaign truly cares and treasures your contribution.

We are all part of something special here.

Time for some Math folks...

RP just got ~$300,000 in about ~1.5 days.

That's ~$200,000 per day!

Take that to a typical quarter that has ~90 days and he's raising money at the $18,000,000 level. This beats all the Republicans in money raising speed and most of the Dems.

But now consider this:

- This is just Internet donations (does not include mail-in or telephone)
- These are just " the people's " donations. RP does not take special interest money or lobbyist money.
- RP only has about %15 to %20 name recognition. The other big ones have closer to %70 - %95.

This is the ultimate underdog story.

Of course $18 mil is unreasonable - I said this is the speed at which he is raising today - without all the benefits the others have.

In actuality, expectations are that he will raise $3 mil - perhaps (upper limits here) $4 mil WITH the $1 mil boost.

If we get anywhere past $3.5 mil this quarter, I will be stoked - considering summertime is the slow period for donations.
