WHY NOT get this going now
I was looking over this link http://ronpaul.meetup.com/
The stats claim:
Previous thoughts were at this post:
So thinking with the meetup numbers:
52,000 meetups(each putting up a pac for non committed candidates so they can donate 5k to any candidate)
3 years for fund raising
100 dollars donated per all 109,000 of those people per year
This means their will be 32.7 million dollars split up between 52,000 meetups if we started right now for 2012.
That means each meetup could donate about 628 dollars of their cap of 5k for any one candidate.
This seems like the way to do things.
Any leaders want to organize this grassroots effort?
Sounds like we could have paul, johnson, sanford, all flooding the stage with liberty thoughts and outnumber the other side.
With matched funds this would guarantee that these very frugal men would start out with 10 million each plus another 10 million of matched funds.
Sarah, Huckabee and Romney would have a serious battle in iowa and nh on their hands
Why the heck not

Well, my Meetup Group appears to be dead, and efforts to revive it have thus far been unsucessful. They will blast anti-Semitic garbage back and forth to each other but ask if they want to get together or add some constructive thoughts and all you get is....crickets.
I think this sounds like a great idea but I'm just a little confused by the statement in parenthesis.

Only problem is, the candidates can do all they want, but in the long run, all of us are going to have to get energized and active again. No more 3 member meetups that last 10 minutes because we can't think of anything to say or do. We're going to have to really do something. This next election we'll be better prepared. We'll have time to make money, time to organize, and time to plan. 2008 marked the year we tried for the best cause but had no idea what we were doing.
I don't want the Nevada State Convention to happen again. We could've had that secured if we knew about the Quorum rules and our supporters didn't leave. Tiny misunderstandings like that can now be corrected.
We'll be much more organized and stronger this next election season. We need to start setting aims on 2010 elections.
when you file the pac it shouldnt be for any candidate
It was meant to say that when you file the pac it should be a pac not committed to any candidate so that several candidates from each pac could receive the maximum donation.
