Ron paul said on the adam curry show if people want to raise a lot of money on a certain date he doesnt see how any one could oppose this. He also said that the camp has no association with this but it sounds like a fine idea.

Listen to the entire interview(40 minutes) on the october 24th edition of the dailysourcecode hosted by adam curry. Dailysourcecode.com.

Adam also said he is filling out his endorsement form, and is sending money Ron Paul's way. He has an audience of around 500k people, 60% of whom are american. Something like 280k american listeners i dont want to do the math. Hopefully a few out of this 280k will follow suit, it was a great interview.

Adam Curry:
"Right now there is a major push online for Nov 5th. I don't know if you're familiar with this.....I believe that everyone is going to start donating on one day specifically to really make a big jump. I have heard that that is not necessarily endorsed or even desired by your campaign. Do you want to comment on that?"

Ron Paul:
"Well, I know about it and I hear about it and it certainly wasn't originated in the campaign. But, I don't know how anybody could want to get too far from it. If somebody wants to raise a lot of money and have a surprise and have a media event that on one particular day we raise a huge amount of money. I can't see how anybody would say thats a bad idea"

300,000 listeners. That is big, and that I think, is a crowd we might not have reached yet.

Does anyone know what the most donors for one day is? Maybe we can hit that record?

Does this mean the people trying to destroy this project due to not liking the movie can shut up now?

This is 39 minutes in on the podcast interview

I used to be against it due to October fundraising goals, but now I'm all for it!!! We need more Nov 5th YouTube videos!!!!! :eek:

ooh, that's a fantastic idea - I don't know if we can break the single day fundraising record (someone said in another thread it was 6 million?) but we should find out what the greatest number of donors a campaign has ever had is. That would be a nice feather in our cap -
"Ron Paul receives donations from more individuals than any other candidate"

I've already asked OpenSecrets.org if they have that info - I'll let you know if I hear anything.

Seems pretty in your face to me! lol :D

I hope this is a lesson to all of those Bradley from D.C.'s out there. (;) for Bradley) Quit trying to tell people how to support Dr. Paul and just do it the way that you feel is appropriate! (Most of us are adults and know where to draw the line) If the official campaign has a problem with something, they can let us all know...

It will all come out in the wash :)

Like I said elsewhere,

Of coarse he would encourage people to raise money on any date.... I don't think too many people had a problem with the actual date that other than it might hurt this months goal.

What most of us had problems with was the V association.

But Ron probably isn't to familiar with V for Vendetta. Was he specifically asked about his opinion on an association between him and the movie? He was just asked what he thought about a fund raising effort on the 5th.

I would bet you if Ron was asked if he wanted to be associated with a violent anarchist superhero, he'd probably say no. He probably knows nothing about V for Vendetta.

The interviewer never mentioned V for Vendetta. He said donating on nov 5th, completley different. We really need to drop this.

I understand why, but I had a poll I was working on to. Please don't merge it, the poll will be lost

If anyone is familiar with the significance of Nov 5 and Guy Fawkes, it might be our learned Dr. Paul.

I love that he has stayed consistent in that he supports the grassroots to operate independently of the campaign, and without oversight or supervision. That is the strength of this campaign. We don't all have to agree on the method, only on the goal. The better ideas will prosper.

How can you possibly Assume to know what the good Dr. knows and doesn't know? This post fits your name perfectly.

Listen to what Dr. Paul says about the topic, don't pretend to know what he really thinks...

The movie was not addressed, just Nov 5th. Ron Paul said he had no problem with fundraising on the date. Lets not stretch this into, see I told you, type of thing.

Donations are really lack luster yesterday and today.
The slope of the graph is pretty much unchanged.
This means two things -- we're not recruiting new givers faster than we're tapping out current ones, the recoil time after the big pushes may be hurting us more than the big pushes are helping. We'll need to see how this week shapes up before we can start to make any solid determinations.

Note: I've signed up for both the 11/11 and 11/5 programs, so I'm not speaking ill of them, I'm supporting them -- with my money. I expect I'll be maxed out before we get to the end of the primaries anyway, so this isn't really a net increase from me. Ultimately, we need to get people to give MORE than $100 one time (or two times or three times).

I did listen. He wasn't asked about V for Vendetta. I don't know for certain what he thinks, but I'd be willing to bet that the good Dr. Wouldn't want to be associated with a violent anarchist superhero.

Ron Paul isn't an anarchist. He wouldn't be running for president if he was.

Who gives a damn about the freakin movie man, its a marketing ploy to get people to unite for a common cause on a certain date. Im sure if we made it november 6 you would find some obscure date in history where someone raped a goat then killed his wife and would be like "DO WE WANNA BE ASSOCIATED WITH GOAT RAPERS AND WIFE KILLERS." I've never seen the damn movie, and i dont care. Stop bitching and moaning.

That is absurd.

People on here wanted to associate Paul with V for Vendetta. So it would make sense to consider what Paul would think about it.

If you had seen the movie maybe you'd understand why some people think it is a bad association to draw.

No one is trying to associate Ron Paul with "GOAT RAPERS AND WIFE KILLERS"

Can we finally put to bed the people who want to somehow hijack the rEVOLution and try to make this a business as usual, corporate run campaign?

If Dr. Paul supports the November 5th Victory Cash Bomb, then who are the corporate types to take the rEVOLution away from the people by marganalizing the rEVOLutionaries?

Brinck Slattery
10-24-2007, 12:48 PM
Daron, there's nothing "corporate" or bad about trying to make Dr. Paul as appealing as possible to the largest number of people possible. It's an election, not a protest.

How can this Nov. 5th bomb be put on the tonight show. I don't care what the reason for starting this. It is growing thanks a lot of people. If it works Ron will blow them away with free PR. 100 million is possible by years end. And those who don't like it start something yourself.

Remember, Remember, Paul's 5th of November
