I'd be surprised if we can make it passed 19.25 million at this rate...

It will NOT take a miracle!

We can make this happen! On Dec. 16th we had tens of thousands of first time contributors who are no where close to being maxed out. If even one quarter of them would make an additional donation we could raise more than a million dollars!

We can do it. I was going to donate $200 today. I will bump it to $300. Everyone did deep and get us to 20M. We can do it.

Yup, 'tis so. See my post in this thread (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?p=762797#post762560), quoting an article from today's Wall Street Journal.

They probably will, seeing that it is the last day of Q4 and all offline donations ARE part of Q4.

If anyone is waiting until the last hour or two before midnight tonight to donate, don't. The max rate we could sustain on December 16th was about $300K per hour. Let's cross the $20M line as early as we can.

I pledged to donate $100 today. Then I thought I should kick it to 200. This morning I decided ot go to 300. However, when I thought about it more, I want to see us get to 20M. So I went to $500.

Thank you for your generous donation of $500.00!

Contribution received!

I am almost maxed out. But I intend to support the money bombs in January as best I can. Everyone should go all in!

We have 7.5 hours and we need about $108,000 per hour.

I had low expectations for this money bomb. It was hardly promoted and there wasn't the swirl of Youtube videos leading up to the event. I think for what it's worth, ending the day with a few hundred thousand more in the bank is hardly something to be disappointed with. After the offline donations are added in, we might be over $19.5 MM, which will certainly lead some to describe it as "nearly $20 MM." Also, we've learned that there seems to be a diminishing return on the media's perception of newsworthiness of towering fundraising figures, once you hit certain levels. I doubt that reaching $20 MM would "change everything." Everyone's pretty much in agreement that Paul kicked ass this quarter.

You can send 12 emails to group leaders in a 24 hour period, and they are splitting the meetup groups into chunks...go take 12 groups to email, it only takes a few minutes.

Don't forget, the campaign still has offline donations they haven't added in yet -- we may already be past $20 million!

I am still wondering if there are a lot of people waiting till almost midnight before they 'try' to donate. Seems logical to me.

Last time the server crashed at 11:45PM so this might be a bad strategy...

CBS news just called Thompson's supporters' money bomb a "tragic online fundraiser" - they didn't even raise enough for him to put a single ad on the air! :D

On this New Year's Eve, I would like to propose a toast to Ron Paul. On this night when so many people usher in the new year with alcohol, I propose that each of us dig into our pockets for a round of drinks for all of our friends. But instead of actually buying those drinks, donate the money we would have spent to today's Money Bomb.

I'm afraid many people have been side-tracked by the whole Ron Paul has/has not been invited to the forum that will/will not take place on January 6th. That is probably what the trolls intended anyway.

Every vote counts. Every dollar counts. Will we make Fox News coverage tomorrow with a story that we could not raise $20 million for the best candidate running? The clock is ticking.

I had donated a modest amount to both money bombs, but recently I convinced my wonderful mother to donate 50 dollars.

20 mill please
