I've already given my $2300 to the campaign. But I'm inspired by the efforts of a lot of people who are digging very deep to donate, so I decided to give directly to some grassroots efforts today. I gave $250 total to these four chipins:

http://rpcanvassing.chipin.com/sw-iowa-ron-paul-canvassing-group
http://dvdinnh4ronpaul.chipin.com/dvd-handouts-in-nh

I hope others of you who have given $2300 and still have more to give will support these efforts. Iowa and New Hampshire are of course crucial, and Texas, while late, has a lot of delegates and is Ron Paul's home state.

I am going to spend this weekend campaigning in New Hampshire. It's not quite that good, but it's something.

Also, I just got the letter saying that I'm registered as a Republican. So now there's no question about me getting to vote for the good doctor.

I've heard that the various online stores, who donate to Ron Paul, are a way to circumvent this.

I've also been wondering if we have any lawyers in here who know about the campaign finance laws. Can I set up a non-profit center where those who are over their limit can donate for those who cannot?

Any answers?

It is not legal. You can set up a Political Action Committee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_action_committee), for which donations are filtered.

Yes i read about these PAC thingys. read an article where someone had a PAC dinner where an envelope had a price of multiple thousands.

Why hasn't a PAC been setup?

I've been giving what I can which isn't close to the limit so to see this makes me feel better. Many Thanks!

ps it would be nice to see a place where people with little resources and mucho time could pick up stuff.

Several PAC's have been setup -- you just haven't been looking for them until now.:eek:

See http://www.alcpac.com, http://www.operationnh.com, etc. I think http://www.RonPaulMax.com has a bigger listing :D

you can also write letters to iowa!!!

I've distributed 510 names, and Josh over 300 to the forum here, maybe more as well. I am waiting on another 1000 names, but there are several sources in the thread I posted. :) Our goal is to send a personal letter to every one of the 700,000 names we have in the master list!

Check it out!

you could also advertise in local papers for meetup groups to get more volunteers in strategic locations... Des Moines, Souix City, Charleston
