March 10 1862 The first paper money was issued in the U.S.: $5, $10, and $20 bills

March 11 1931 Birthday of Rupert Murdoch, Australian media mogul( I say we all short sell newscorp stock for his birthday present)

March 23 1775 Patrick Henry made his famous call for America's independence from Britain, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" at a political convention

I honestly like the plan of 1 per month. It takes that long to recover from one and save up for the next. Also that long to hype it up.
My picks would be the same. GW in Feb.
Patrick Henry in March.

April is too far away.

IMO, we need one in Feb.

I am not suggesting we do all of them, my preference is stated at the bottom ofthe message. Georges b-day and hemry's speech. I would like to see how others feel though. If maybe one or two of these dates are worthy.

Yes if there is enough zeal for it. Patrick Henry's quote and GW's birthday might fit that bill nicely.

I would bet we could get our goal of 10 million on the anniversary of Patrick Henry's speech

Regardless it should all be coordinated with tax returns. We must organize some sort of "Tax Returns for Paul" fund raiser.

April 15 and George Washington's birthday.

Note to the official campaign: Pennsylvania primary 4/22, several other states first week of May. Since this is close to April 15, voters should be plenty angry after having to pay taxes and should be receptive to our message. Maybe a big ad campaign in those states around the 15th highlighting the abuses of the IRS and economic impact of punitive tax rates. Educate the masses that there is only one candidate who wants to reduce the size and intrusiveness of government.

"February 22 1732 Birthday of George Washington, first President of the United States of America (1789-1797), Commander-in-chief of Continental forces during the American Revolution."

Also the first birthday of my daughter, Finley Ann. I was very excited that she was born on Washington's birthday.

That's my pick. Far enough away for us to organize, yet close enough to have an impact. Also a very significant event for our movement.

This one is probably better than most as far as timing before Feb 5th. The money won't do the campaign any good for Feb 5th, but it will give them an idea of the amount of additional money upon which they can depend come Super Tuesday. Say, they want to reserve $1M at the close of Super Tuesday. With a money bomb on Feb 3rd, they can reasonably assume that they'll have $3M on Super Tuesday instead of $1M. ;)

How about a neverendingbomb?

At this rate, we are on track to bring in 212 million for the quarter. :D

The problem is we don't have much time. I think now would be a good time for a billionaire to step forward. Or a well known celebrity.

We need something because the major media corporations are chocking the life out of us.





I am trying my hardest to get something to subvert the power of the major media corporations.

I need your help to get Celebrities for Ron Paul.

Celebrities for Ron Paul.

Start a thread and a chip in

I've been thinking about that one too.

They can ignore us but they won't ignore celebrities.

It is clear we must all agree on a single date and stick with it or we will not be successful. I like http://libertytax08.com as long as most people have a tax return by then. Tax returns will make all the difference in the next money bomb and it should be focused on.

I think a week to week payday donation would be best in between the money bombs such as http://RonPaulsPayDay.com

Whatever is decided we have to make sure that no othe rmoney bombs are carried out b4 hand, the mre money raised per day the more media attention i'd say about 1 million bucks gets Dr. Paul ONE interview.

Ya know since the media hates talking about him.

But what is wrong with President's day? Yes I know, its associated with Lincoln AND Washington, but why not market it as a salute to GREAT presidents who represented individual liberty, and RON PAUL.

The only change that I'd make to the Liberty Tax money bomb is a reduction is the pledged amount from $500 to $250 to make it more accessible. Let's face it, giving Ron $15M just before Super Tuesday is rather pointless. Pledging just enough money before Super Tuesday, e.g. $2-5M, will allow the campaign some breathing room to spend most of the money that they currently have NOW for advertisements.
