That is terrific, for us. For wide distribution 'the end of Trey Grayson' might be a bit jarring to other Republicans, and the 'bring it on' regarding attacks might be seen to justify this incredible media feeding frenzy against him which I honestly think has astonished a lot of voters.

I'll definitely be donating, though.

"The mass media was not involved"

To be fair, Rand got much more favorable national media coverage than Trey Grayson.

Trey Grayson should not be mentioned. Rand needs to look forward and get Trey Grayson donors.

Trey Grayson and McConnell combined are mentioned about 10 times, negatively. I don't think any negative mention of either of them is good.

Yeah. One of Mitch might be ok, in my mind, because it shows Rand was independent but I agree with what you say. However, I didn't make the video and while I can edit I can't upload..... (sorry, not very tech savvy.)

Nice!!! That's a remake of one of my favorite videos from 2007/2008, and it made the transition very well! Kudos to whoever worked it out.

I do agree though that since we need to get a lot of Republicans who supported Trey involved, we should take out "the end of Trey" etc. :)

Edit: I can't wait to show it to everyone!

I agree with the other posters though, we need to go easy on Trey and Mitch now... we have many of their backers on board now... and we want them to put money in when we pass the plate!

This video was absolutely amazing. I agree a bit with the sentiment towards mentioning Grayson and McCon, but then again...they deserved it. I'm from Kentucky and have immediately begun spreading this through facebook. Whoever made this video, THANK YOU...in but a few minutes you have re-inspired me after the lull since the primary.

You think some Grayson donor would donate to Rand after watching the video on facebook?

Republicans in Kentucky are the minority, and Republicans in Kentucky HATE everything democrat, more so than anywhere else I've traveled. So yes, I would say that any Republican who is going to donate at all will donate to Rand regardless of any video or other means of attention grabbing. As I said before, there are more Democrats in this state, so a few negatives towards Grayson and McCon will most likely sway them to our side considering the vast majority of them are conservative democrats anyway and just hate the Republican party. Then again, I could be wrong; in the end it's still a very inspiring video that will ABSOLUTELY draw money from any and all Rand fans that see it + I'd say a few democrats too...Everyone in this state has been living the Rand vs. Grayson negativity for a year now, it is no secret that they aren't the same and it is even less a secret that McCon initially rallied against Rand. At the end of the day the Republicans in Kentucky are Republicans and will NEVER allow a democrat to win no matter what a video says, especially under our current Obamanomics environment.

The pledge total. It's barely even at a hundred. Even some of our past duds, like that Schiff "will you fight?" one in September 2009 that raised like $15,000 or something, received 300+ pledges.

I think Ron Paul will send out an inspirational e-mail on the 28th that will rally it to a good fundraising day. But right now, I'd be shocked if the money bomb reaches a six-digit figure.

I don't get the pledge thing at all. Why pledge? Why get on another email list BEYOND the campaign email list (since the pledge site isn't the campaign site)? I'm donating and not pledging. However, I wish I was seeing more videos and excitement about this, elsewhere.

Fair enough, but I guess what I'm getting at is WHY aren't there more pledges?
Or, as sailingaway has addressed, why doesn't there appear to be more excitement?

I happen to believe this moneybomb is the most important of the campaign, both as a measure of continued support and as an omen of things to come. Rand has largely been on defense recently, and I don't want him to be in the position of having to additionally defend what would surely be spun as a sign of failing support.

I hope everyone can understand how the success of this moneybomb has consequences far beyond its mere monetary tally.

The September 23rd moneybomb brought in $186,000.

I'm guessing this next one is around the $200k range.

I honestly don't think the moneybombs these days are promoted strongly as they should be. I remember when Ron was having his moneybombs it seemed every freedom loving website had a banner of some sort, but for Rand this isn't the case. Is this where they see him as Ron Paul lite and just don't want to support him as strongly as his dad? Whatever the case may be we need to for the upcoming moneybombs email as many liberty loving websites as we can to have them post a banner or if they have email lists, to send them out in mass. Hell, I remember Dr. Mercola the biggest alternative Dr. on the net sending out emails about Ron's moneybombs because of his stances on health freedom. We should try and target the same crowd with Rand. I think we're it's an off year and most arn't paying attention to politics right now it's our job to take the message to them where as for the general election last time it seemed like everyone was much more intune. June 28th can still be decently big, but for the future we need to target those liberty loving people with large emailing lists and politely ask them to support Rand and support the upcoming moneybombs. It'd be a shame if Rand loses just because he didn't have enough money to compete..

I see that you are too new to know that many of us are against the very idea of intellectual property.

If you have someone remove a video for copyright issues, you're an ass. There's no way around it.

But it is a good video, and the guy might just want his name at the end, for credit. That isn't a big deal, to me. I think acknowledging people is courteous, in any event. And whatever you think about copyright, the fact is, most feel their work should be protected, unless donated to the public domain.

Once he gets your video pulled, any polite gesture is undeserved.

Whatever you think about welfare, most people on the dole believe unemployment benefits should continue.

LOL! to BamaFan's comment. That was my point. Nose, meet face.



Whatever you think about welfare, most people on the dole believe unemployment benefits should continue.

I'm not actually sure I agree this is a parallel (for a couple of reasons, one being that the normal unemployment is insurance paid for as part of employment, not strict dole, just this new extension stuff is.) However, I can't say I've philosophically thought it through. It is the fruit of your labor as much as a vase you make or crops you grow. Granted ideas make the world go round....but I still think if you create something there is some ownership there, the extent is the issue, and that is policy, not philosophy.

But this is not an issue I really care about, so you can have it. I care about having a good video for the money bomb.

I don't see the point, really. That footage isn't anything special. It was a few seconds of a three or four minute long video. Why not simply replace it and save some dignity? The quality of the video would probably even increase, since you would no longer have a quote from Jackass Conway saying something positive about Paul.

But that is what made that footage good. If he HAS other video of Conway, or if you do, or if someone living near Conway can get some, great. (I wonder what Pancakes' schedule is like these days?) But the money bomb is Monday.
