This needs to get out immediately and make the waves over the weekend and the following two days if we are to put a big dent into the money that the campaign is asking to have BEFORE they go into Ames.
OK, so we hold a Money Bomb on August 3rd for THREE reasons:
1) The campaign has asked for $1,400,000 before the Ames straw poll.
- This number is probably including the $600,000 already raised? I'm not sure on that yet, does anyone else know?..
2) This date is also when Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as the nation's 30th President. We should do our best to tie Ron Paul and his 2012 campaign to this great man, who as President shared values almost identical to Ron's. (taxation, foreign policy, individualism)
3) August 3rd is also the day AFTER the supposed "apocalyptic" catastrophe that liberals, Obama, Geithner, others and even other Republicans have spoken about. Giving to RP on this day could garner a LOT of media attention PLUS vindicate his views on the debt ceiling issue.
After the Money Bomb, we follow up with a week long PUSH to raise whatever else we didn't get on the 3rd and more. That way, the campaign will have all the money by August 10th, which will give them 2+ days to advertise for Ames.
Please people, time is running short and we have to decide something NOW. I believe this is our best shot. We need to do MAJOR advertising for this starting now and throughout the entire next week so those who might not hear about the Money Bomb in time can still donate during the week's push.
****** If anyone has the ability to do so, please contact whoever made "http://www.readyamesfire.com" to make another site for August 3rd and have it include all the aspects covered above. Or, make one yourself. Either way, we need to get advertising for this event out pronto!!
****** The same goes for videos. I will try to make one tonight, others should do the same.
****** Also, get the word out on Facebook, Twitter and where ever else you can!
While the "MoneyBomb" is important, it will be best to raise as much as we can in whatever combination possible throughout the first two weeks of August. We just need to make sure that the campaign gets what they need to do what they are trying to do.[/B]
