Right now we are less than $1.2 Million away from the official campaign's goal of 12 million for the quarter and are only 5 days away from the Tea Party.

Looking at the graphs donations appear to be flattening out in the recent days, but wouldn't it be great if we could re-double our efforts and get Ron to his goal of $12 million before the party and then everything that day going forward will be icing on the cake.

This is do able, and even if don't make it, it will be close. Does anyone have ideas for getting the word out?

there's nothing newsworthy about 12 million before the 16th

the 16th is what matters, many of us know how much we can afford to donate. the 16th is when it'll count for media exposure. the next 4 days are irrelevant

Anyone caught robbing the Tea Party in this manner will be thrown overboard, just as was done in the original Boston Tea Party.

Agreed--give until it hurts on the 16th.

There's still the issue of needing that money early to buy TV/Radio time. However, I think the R.P. campaign could atleast convert that money from the 16th to banners, mail ads, signs, etc.
Plus the Blimp should bring in some money if the news actually covers.

Even if the money comes in late, R.P. still can use it in the later primary states like CA, MI, and TX.

We'd get so little media attention for it that it wouldn't be worth hurting the Tea Party. They're still going to report "Ron Paul zooms past $12 million Q4 campaign goal and even his own personal expectation of $15 million... with hours to spare".

Nice first post [personal attacked removed by poster to save admins the trouble]

Starting at 11 million and adding a million to Dec 16th FTW.

starting at $11,000,000 is easily done with no take away from the 16th. All we need to do is average 30k or so a day...... pretty average.

maybe 12 million isn't necessary, but it is symbolic. :)

Well, it would be easier to make it to 11 million by Sunday. We have 5 days, including what is left of today, and we have been averaging a mere $20k a day. If we get up to $31k today and each day until the tea party, we will crest the $11million mark just in time for it.

thoughts?

I think it's safe to say.. ignore anyone who says we should categorically ignore anyone with less than 50 posts. Because, let's get real, unless someone has posted at least 317 times their opinion doesn't really matter. This is completely logical and in no way arbitrary, so don't even try to disagree with me.

That said, save your money for the 16th. We're looking for headlines, and "New one-day fund raising record of $X million for Ron Paul" sounds a hell of a lot more impressive than "Ron Paul surpasses 4th Quarter fund raising goal before December 16th but even better than that on December 16th he got a new one-day fund raising record of $(X-1.2) million."

I'm just saying.

Then why does his website say 11.35 million?

Where did this 500 grand come from in the last day?

Greetings All,

Methinks offline donations were added yesterday.

HOLD donations. NEVER listen to anyone who suggests something stupid in their first and only post. DONATE on the 16th.

I think that's a better strategy than the original post.

I'm really looking forward to donating on the 16th, but I wonder how many people are aware of the fact that the big donation day is on the 16th. Up until 3 days ago, I was under the impression that it was a Tea Party weekend on the 15th AND 16th.

I don't think it will matter in the end. Anything above 4 million is a victory.
