I've never donated to any compaign in my 20 years of voter eligibility. And as soon as we're within 2 months of the Kansas primary, I'm going to put my first ever political yard sign up!

:cool:
Indiana's primaries aren't until May, but I've got 2 signs in my yard already. The more exposure he gets, the more following he gets. What are you waiting for? :D

City ordinance. And since I'm on our city council, I should probably follow it! :D

LOL! ok ;)

I'm probably breaking ordinances. :D Don't care! I live right at a 3 way stop (my driveway would be the 4 way) so I take advantage of the angles to catch em all!

Unfortunately (at least for this purpose), I live on a very low-traffic street in a small town (pop. 1300). But that's not going to deter me!

Someone should have made some Ron Paul inflatable snowmen to display for the Christmas season!

Yup, first time. Donating what I can on a college student budget. Going to make sure everyone at the campus libertarians meeting tonight does so as well.

Why wait to put out the sign?

If there are local "regulations" I assure you that they are completely UN-constitutional limitations of your inalienable rights to POLITICAL Freedom of Speech.

You wanna keep your rights? Sometimes you have to FIGHT for them -- or at least EXERCISE them.

Ummm, actually, since you are a city council, you should demonstrate OBEDIENCE to the Constitutional LIMITS on government, rather than slavish devotion to abuse of authority.

Which means NOT passing laws (or "ordinances", "regulations", or even orcish "rules") that VIOLATE the rights guaranteed by that Constitution. (And also probably guaranteed by your State Constitution as well as case law, etc.)

Today was the first that I have donated as well. $25 today and $100 for the Tea Party and any other money I can spare in the next month.

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

I have no problem with local ordinances, which I believe the Constitution allows. They are what allows communities to be a reflection of its citizenry. I still have freedom of speech as I can talk to anyone, anytime, about anything I want if they are willing to listen.

This probably isn't the place to talk about it, but I take it you don't agree with rules that prohibit electioneering with a certain distance at voting sites?

(This will probably be my last post in this topic as I will probably be offline for the next few days, starting in a few minutes.)

GO RON PAUL!!!

I have a sign in my yard and I hope there is a "law" against it. I read a thread about this a few days ago where someone was being threatened with a $1000 a day fine. Apparently these laws have already been struck down by the Supreme Court. (note: a law that is not constitutional is invalid from itís inception, not when a court declares it unconstitutional. Remember, We The People are the ultimate protectors of the Constitution. To take that to it's ultimate conclusion they include the 2nd amendment in the Bill of Rights.)

We have freedom of speech and it is our private property after all. It can't be taken without a seizure warrant also.

I'm not really a new donor I guess, but this will be the first time giving money to Ron Paul on a moneybomb day. I put in $25 dollars about a week ago, and I plan to kick in another $25-50 today during the 7-8pm window :D

Amen to that. In my 30 some years of voting I finally have someone that is not the lesser of 2 evils. I am so excited about Dr. Paul. This is a real revolution.

Well I just donated and it was the very first time I have ever donated to a political candidate. I will save up to donate again at the big tea party!

I have never cared much for politics whatsoever. Apologetically, I voted for Bush in 2000, but refused to vote in 2004.

For the first time ever, I have gained a huge interest in politics, and today I made my first (small but symbolic $17.76) contribution EVER to a campaign today!

Thanks to Ron Paul, I have hope! We absolutely HAVE to get him in office. I've been scared this country won't be fit to live in not that many years from now. He can turn all that around!

Last night, two co-workers were first-time donors. I've been chatting their ears off about Ron Paul and they're interested, but reserved about donating. I talked them in to donating $5 each.

Then I matched their donation to make them feel better about it. They gave me the cash and I made the donation on behalf of them, so I've also made this post on behalf of them.

There would likely have been another co-worker, but she was at a funeral. She's got a lot more enthusiasm for Ron Paul than the other two.

Never donated to a political campaign ever before.

I bet no other republican has these kinds of new donations.

That's our strength.

I've followed the campaign closely for many, many months, but my first donation occurred on November 5th. It took a huge concept like that to bring me into the political process with cash of my own. I had never even conceived of donating to a campaign before hearing of Ron Paul. And the success of the 5th inspired me to really get out there and get the word out. The 2004 elections had me believing the political system was doomed. Ron Paul has given me hope.

I'm new and donated on the 30th. And I'm ready to donate again on the 16th. My first political donations ever (if you don't include being a member of the ACLU).

Will donate the full 100 on the 16th, then I drop a (bomb within a bomb) of 25 bucks.
