I just donated $50 a day ago before I heard about the money bomb but, you know what, I think this cause is just too important for me to sit on the sidelines. Count me in for another $50.

Which office was it? The congressional offices cannot do anything with the moneybombs or anything like that, since campaigning is technically independent of the legislating.

His PAC can run ads just like any other PAC.

They're definitely aware of the moneybomb... just check the front page of www.LibertyPAC.com

What is with their front page? "a revolutionary was born?" I had no idea Ron was so old!

Pretty sure it's traceable no matter how you do it.. otherwise you'd be able to go past the $5,000 limit.

Didn't it used to be that donations under $100 didn't require a name? That goes out the window with online transactions though; but cash donations?

In that case, why couldn't someone make 1,000,000 $99 donations?

The question is... WILL they run OUR ads this time? (you know, the ones that are professional and persuasive).

Someone should contact Ron's office on that..that's obviously a typo....:-)

I did the math and 2011 - 279 = 1732. so the burning question is which "Revolutionary" was born in 1732?

Jefferson was 1743
Washington was, in fact, 1732
Thomas Paine 1737
John Hancock 1737
ben Franklin 1706

I guess most people don't know that President's Day used to be George Washington day, and then they changed it to include other Presidents (Hence named President's Day)...That's why this place is great because I certainly don't have all the answers and we can learn from each other. I think a Presiden'ts Day is absolutely disgraceful to the American tradition of individual sovereignty and liberty, to which we look up to no man or woman and our values dictate a strict adherence to the individual and to their commitment to non-idol worship. As Herbert Spencer said: 'Wherever there is Hero Worship, the people are less free.'

We've become a society of men and not ideas, and it is sad.

I've donated several times and just now checked the donation page and there's no place where they ask your nationality. I would guess anyone can donate...

Can Ron use this money for campaigning in the primaries?

For all intents and purposes, what he's doing now in Iowa is campaigning for the primaries.

Here's what he said in his email about what the money can be used for:

Money sent to Liberty PAC will allow me the flexibility I need to test the waters and determine the next best step as I continue to fight for what you and I hold so dear.

Liberty PAC funds will allow me to travel, speak out, hire staff, and fund mail, phones, emails, and banner, TV, and radio ads to contact, educate, and persuade our fellow Americans. And, it will provide me with flexibility no other vehicle can.

There will be tons of chip ins and grassroots projects requesting money outside of the campaign. Obviously you would want to make sure they are legit usually by checking a popular ron paul site and seeing who is talking about it, but I know you can contribute to those things.

When we raise millions, and the mainstream media picks it up, I wonder how long it will take them to realize it refers to George Washington. Considering the talking heads dismal record on knowing actual history.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I got a bit of money saved up, plus I want to spend my entire summer job wages on Ron's 2012 run, however I can. (Hopefully I can donate $3000-4000 over the election cycle)

OK. My bad. I deserve the double face palm. I guess. But I lose track of these federal government holidays. A nice little picture of George might have been good. On horseback with a saber or something..
