View Full Version : WOW! At 12:01 am on Oct 19th, Ron Paul will receive my entire paycheck!

Check it out!


35 years ago a man came to Washington with one message – restore liberty. Over the succeeding years this humble man has been ridiculed, ostracized, laughed at, and probably most painfully of all – outright ignored. Yet he has never ever wavered from this message.

Think about that for a minute.

Here’s a man who had no hope of ever getting heard – of ever getting credit – of ever accomplishing anything – yet he never gave one inch. Never compromised. Never thought of himself or his legacy. How many of us here could have stood amongst these cretins in Washington – selling their souls and climbing the power ladder - for so long? Without getting co-opted. Without giving up and going home. Without softening the message. Without going off on some half crazed rant that would surely have ended our political career.

The word greatness is thrown around way too much nowadays. I believe we are all witnesses to greatness here. Ron Paul defines greatness. I think about all this man has endured over those 35 years - all for me and my liberty - and I can’t help but break down and cry.

Ron Paul says that this is not about him. He says it’s about the message and that he was just lucky enough to come around at the right time and be a spokesman for the cause. He is right, of course. The message of liberty will endure long after he and you and I are long gone. But he is also, very very wrong. I believe when all is done, this man will have saved a nation – check that – saved a world.

What price can one put on saving a world? One lousy paycheck? Please. My sacrifice for this man is paltry. Our founders pledged their LIVES, their FORTUNES, and their SACRED HONOR. Now THAT’s a pledge!

If you are wrestling with how much to give this October 19th, might I suggest this rule of thumb. Determine how much will completely devastate you and your family for more than a month. Then DOUBLE it. Look your daughter … or your son … or your grandchild squarely in the eye, then ask yourself how much is their future worth to you today?? How much temporary pain are you willing to accept now, so that they can still live in a country that cares about freedom? How much are you willing to die, that they might live? The answer is easy, is it not?

Who here will stand with me? Who here will rise up, throw off the manacles that bind us to our lame excuses, and make this OUR day? Who here will look the person in the mirror and say “If not me, who? If not now, when?” Who here will lay it all on the line for a man who deserves nothing less?

Before Ron Paul, I never gave a dime to another politician. To Ron Paul – I would lay down my life. Will you?

I'm giving my entire week of pay to Ron Paul as well ($90). I figure it'll be put to better use than anything I would buy otherwise. I'll end up saving way more than $90 if RP is elected.

Honestly sounds pretty fanatical to me.


might I suggest this rule of thumb. Determine how much will completely devastate you and your family for more than a month. Then DOUBLE it.

Hopefully donating half of the legal maximum ($1,250) won't devastate too many of us, but if you're that tight on funds please don't do this. Look out for yourself first.

Please donate what you can but do not devastate yourself financially like the author suggests. That's a surefire way to defeat your own cause. Remember, you ARE the cause. If you're living in a homeless shelter how effectively will you be able to donate to other campaigns and the moneybombs in the future?

We need happy, successful activists with the worldly means to advance the cause of liberty.

Wow! Epic touching post.

And some of the comments below it. People doubling down. People planning to donate big til it hurts. People finding ten more people to donate. People broke, but donating. People wanting to cry over that post and touched so much that they are going to increase their gift to Dr. Paul. Very inspirational. I love every one of them. :)

Amazing spirit supporting Dr. Paul. Amazing hearts.

All those pundits and MSM'ers and opposition have no idea how we feel about our candidate and his message. They have no idea the sacrifices people are willing to make for liberty and freedom. I rather feel sorry for them because they will never know what it is all about. The message is golden.

Good donating and good luck to all of us tomorrow everyone. :)

Special, did you Facebook this? Did you just quote it, and copy it? How did you introduce it? I would like to put it with the BTO link tonight during the debate if it's okay with qwerty. This is amazing!

Good stuff. It's now or never! We must be aware of this:

You will never have another chance to support a candidate this honest IN YOUR LIFETIME.

This is it!!! You can't wait four years and do it then! Ron is truly one of a kind. Now let's do this!

That's pretty hard core.

Donating to causes you believe in is important, but I hope no one donates so much that it hurts his family.

Agreed. Inspired me to quadrupedal my donation.

i lied when i took the poll and answered that i will donate 3x the last amount i donated. :p
i ended up donating 9x my last donation including my purchases:
-"REVOLUTION" Pullover Hoodie - Navy (S)
-"Restore America Now" 2' x 6' Banner
-Ron Paul 2012 1.5" Blue Button
