    Default A Money Bomb For Kokesh?

    A Money Bomb For Kokesh?

    A shot heard round the world? A bold statement that the r3VOLution is getting in gear, and ready to rock and roll? Can we raise a million bucks in a day, for an exploratory committee? Get a 100,000 people to pitch in 10 bucks? 50,000 to pitch in $20? Break a few records, raise some eyebrows, and put the fear of the grumbling masses, voting with their wallets, into what is left of the souls of the current “establishment”

    “Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito.”-Virgil

    That’s right, “… move more boldly against it!”

    What could a million dollars do, with a candidate speaking truths that cross party lines? The fundraisng record for a republican in that district is only $150,000, we could shatter that and make a bold statement, like we did on 11/5. And while we tried to raise ten million for Paul for media attention, perhaps, in this case, we could do more than just scare the establishment, perhaps we could win, and truly shake it!

    $10 bucks ain’t much, all we gotta do is reach out. Dr. Paul has encouraged Adam from the top, it is up to us to supply the bottom.

    Make videos, send emails… We all know the drill.

    Since you're #1 on the list to kick in $10.00, consider me #2

    Im going to start to try and put together a video to promote this. I haven't even begun to conceptualize it yet, but i think i want to compare Adam to Ron Paul and the Ron Paul money-bombs somehow. Show that we are going to have the entire revolutions support behind this one candidate, for one district.

    Lets treat Adam just like we treated Ron Paul in the primaries

    If you have any good ideas for a video ad, let me know!

    Why not shoot for $150,000 exactly, so that way it is as if we can be just as good as all past contenders IN ONE DAY. Plus, it sets the bar $850,000 lower, which is much more manageable than finding 100,000 to fund.

    I think if we could find that, you could hit it if you found 15,000 people to chip in $10 each.

    I think in a short amount of time this Revolution can really only hit about 3,000 people to reliably chip in, which would mean $50 each.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    While I am asking for your financial support in this effort, I want to make it clear that I am willing to make the personal sacrifices necessary to raise the standard of our national leadership. If elected, I will not accept the Congressional salary of approximately $170,000, but only the national average income. It is unbearable in these difficult times, for Congress to tell the American people what is best for us economically while they vote themselves another pay raise and burden our children with impossible debt. Enough is enough!

    So I was talking to Adam this morning and I made the point that supporting local candidates would be way more cost effective and tactically superior than trying to push RP into the White House.

    Say we had 10 candidates for congress and 100, 000 people gave $10 to each of those 10 candidates then we'd have 10 candidates with a million dollars before they even hit the campaign trail.

    Now we have 10 well funded candidates scattered all over the country which is another way of divide and conquer. The establishment will have that much more to do in order to counter our program and discredit our candidates.

    or spend the next 2 years getting liberty candidates elected all over the country, and then it would be much easier to spend the following 2 years getting into the white house
