I like it. It'd give us megatime to recover AND be around Springbreak AND (some might not like this) a day before the pot-smoking holiday of 4/20.

Hahaha . . . It'd be nice. We could all shoot off fireworks. :D

You need to be careful about doing too many Money Bombs, a lot of the regular donor are getting maxed out and if there is a Money Bomb every month there is an increasing risk of a major shortfall.

Why not something new? Moneybombs obviously aren't
"amazing, amazing" anymore.

So what are you trying to achieve? Throwing money out of the window?

Raise money for adverts in your local newspapers instead.

Yes...be careful about giving the campaign more money on a pre-determined date ;)

I wouldn't want that to happen:p

Great first post.

I am maxed out....but I'm thousands and thousands of other people are not....

If you don't want to give then don't...no need to poo on any Project

...especially one that is already rolling with a site and 165+ pledges ;)

Why to go with April 19:
a) Think of April 19 beginning and ending with fireworks . . . That's enough to sell me with the shot heard around the world thing.
b) By then we may or may not have 1,034 delegates, if we DO it'll be a reassurance of Ron Paul's continued support. If we don't, it'll be a reassurance that they made a MONUMENTAL mistake.
c) It's a good four months after the tea party, hopefully the only one between now and April 19 OR maybe the second one between now and then.
d) Again, fireworks sell is for me . . . Think of them all . . . :D :D :D :D
e) And it's arazmus's birthday!

I'm pretty sure there is one scheduled for January 1st because the at the beginning of the year all the people who have maxed out are allowed to donate again. That Money bomb would be huge because of all the maxed out people can donate on the same day as well as all us little bombers.

But personally I would like to see more people sign up at ronpaulmoneybomb.com where the goal is to get 40,000 to donate $25 a week, which is what I was doing before I had to start saving for money bombs.

Not to rain on anybody's parade, but April 19th, 2008 will be the 13th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Having a money-bomb on that day may be misconstrued as disrespectful.

As well as the 15th anniversary of Waco.

But its also...

April 19, 1775 - American Revolutionary War: The Battle of Lexington and Concord which began the American Revolutionary War.

Good idea, and yes this is Patriot's day first and foremost and no other historical events should overshadow that....

However it would make it SOOOO easy to make it about Waco, OKC (we are already seeing the McVeigh tie-in being made by the media), Columbina and yes even Hitler's birthday (don't put it past them).
