We should push the donations over the $10 million mark on or before November 30th. That would give the Paul campaign the money they need now and give us a nice round number to start from for December 16th.

The more contributions the better; one million in ten days is very feasible; and welcome aboard.

yep, I agree, I think it'd be a great idea to hit 12mil on Nov 30th, then focus on the teaparty after that.

I see it as very important to take a look at the big picture.

In my view, our opposition comes from :

1) the oligarchy / eastern establishment / nwo. They want RP to fail and will do everything they can to bring that about.

2) Hillary. See point # 1. She's part of it. Remember the list of dead bodies surrounding the Clintons?

3) The other Republican candidates. Following are data from their FEC filings for the THIRD quarter, before stuff started moving at its present pace in RP's campaign or theirs. (The link points to RP's filing but everyone else's is available from there.)


In a nutshell, in the third quarter

Mitt spent $52 million

Rudy spent $30 million

Fred spent $5.6 million

Huck spent $1.7 million

Ron Paul spent $2.8 million.

Do you see what we're up against? And that was only the third quarter.

Plus all these other folks are being promoted by the MSM - while RP has a media blackout.

All the enthusiasm / sign waves / rallies can't overcome that weight unless there's also money for advertising.

Yes, those campaigns have more paid staff than RP's does, and probably they are doing a lot of the heavy lifting that RP volunteers do. But the difference in spending doesn't pay for that many staff.

The letter from Jonathan Bydlak on Monday said that in October alone, $2.8 million was raised, but the campaign spent over $3.1 million. Do you see why more is needed?

You know what I see? I see a fearful and uncertain Republican party who has desperately tried, via control of the media and public policy to sell us on the idea of Rudy first, switching to Romney, then when it became apparent that Ron Paul was kicking their collective asses, throwing their weight behind the "Aw Shucks, I'm Jes a Good Ol' Boy" Thompson- who may as well be on life support for all he's done, to realizing their only chance left is Huckabee. That's the only explanation I have for Huck's so-called poll surge- the media is drumming him like a tom-tom right now and he hasn't the grassroots, nor the credentials of RP.

I think Huck is their new man because if Mitt and Rudy actually spent close to 100 million and are where they are right now, they haven't got a snowballs chance in hell of getting the nomination.

I really think that it's going to be a RP/Huck match up for all the marbles.

With the 30th's donation and 7 days to, I'd say 10mill is guaranteed. shoot for 12.

I don't think we've ever raised a million in a ten day period, aside from The Greatest Day.

Hmm I see that RP spent less than half of what he raised, the only other cnadidate to do so is Fred Thompson. I realize they have had the strategy of a last minute advertizing blitz in the early primary states, but some early advertising could have helped us build up support earlier. On this I am not willing to second-guess the campaign. I am just pointing out that your numbers don't really make the point that I think you wanted them to.


I don't think we've ever raised a million in a ten day period, aside from The Greatest Day.

Last Week of Q3. I still hope that November 30th is muted to $1 million or less. Even at that it will severely eat into December 16th, not to mention the damage it has already done to morale and momentum.

Didn't we raise $1 million in the last week of Q3?

Good point, I forgot about that. We also raised a million in the week after November 5th.

Because on TeaParty we will raise how much?

I didn't realize that another event had been set up:

Rudy's Reading List (http://www.rudysreadinglist.com/) is great because it ties a money drive to the fact that Rudy doesn't know what he is talking about. :)

We should try to break 10 million mark by Dec 1st. The new money bomb is for Nov 30th. THe number 10 million is a nice double digit number and the media will pick up on it, hench it will bring in more free media. I am dropping 200 on Dec 16th so to make up for someone that cant commit to their pledge.
