We have one month to raise this or the blimp will deflate in the middle of flight and everyone on board will fall to the ground! :eek:

*face-palm* We JUST hit the 400,000 mark. Can't we have a 1-day break from this?

that's like saying if we don't fund the war, our troops will be defending themselves with sticks and stones. we always have enough money to withdraw and end it ;) i think the blimp is great don't get me wrong, but if it's worth keeping up in the air, the money will come in, if not it won't. there's no reason to stress about it anymore.

if you're really concerned about people funding the blimp, the best thing you can do is to get more return on investment and make it worth flying. free market forces will keep it in the air if that happens.

If people didn't have to pay for driving a blimp... I think we'd all be in those instead of cars so we wouldn't have to pay for gas =o

Its expensive. But I'm starting to see more and more articles and we're finally going to have some huge showings with the football games. It will be a litmus test of how successful this idea is.

This was a huge gamble, that hasn't really payed off big yet, I'm hoping next couple of weeks will change that.

/agree. The campaign gives us 20 days to raise 23 million. Ron Paul's presidency > Ron Paul blimp. Both are important, yes, but priorities need to be set. Blimp made its goal today, I'd like to see equal championing for fundraising for Dr. Paul's campaign.

Does it? I understand Kent's message rather like an 'if-then' game.

Future headline: Ron Paul meets the Ron Paul Blimp in South Carolina! It could be arranged...

Hey, I'm not asking for any more money tonight. I am too tired to do so. The website can do it for me. Tommorow I will be back to trying to get people pumped up about super Tuesday states. :-)

That is a possibility that is being looked into seriously. :-)

With more people joining up, there will always be more money, plus the ones of us that are still getting paid can have a more money to give.

I think your wrong on Feb 14 we have paid up till Jan 18th for the 1st $400,000, we need another $400,000 to get to Feb 18th.
