    I have donated nearly $300 to the campaign so far. I know many of you have too. But golly, I'm not sure that we will actually show up at the polls.

    What do you think?

    Nevermind that I've committed by donating a chunk out of my menial college student budget--definitely not going out to vote. /sarcasm

    So silly how that is still used as an argument. *shakes head*

    Hmmmm....Good question....I've worked with meetups in my area leaving my job at 7pm then staying up until 12AM creating Ron Paul banners (only to get up early for work drained from the previous night), then spending weekends from 11pm to 3 or 4AM putting up banners on the highways, overpasses and city streets. We've shelled out hundreds of our own money on materials, and getting airplane banners flying overhead, and spreading the message of Ron Paul...And on top of all that we've gladly donated hundreds of dollars AFTER taxes to the campaign.

    And thousands and thousands across America have done the same thing. Do you really think those people will show up to Vote? What if it rains? What if it snows? Won't they just stay home?

    NO it won't. The $#@!ing media will talk about who they want as a candidate, and Ron Paul is NOT mentioned. Ron gets a small 20 second mention. I've been watching Tucker now for over 30 minutes and you won't hear any talk about Ron paul even being a contender. Face it folks, we're not gonna win, or even matter. To the vast majority of the public, Romney, Huckabee, Clit, and Obama are the only names they know and those are the only names they will remember on election day. Yes, we are going to lose, face it. $#@!ing Tucker, $#@!ing Fox, screw them all. More talk about Huckabeee and Bush, more interviews with Romney, no mention of Ron Paul! yeah... we're really winning...


    damnet people, wake up. yeah, i'm upset.

    It damn well better translate into votes - ten times over. If it doesn't then the Wonktards will have been right to call us Paultards.

    i hope all of you that donated believe it will... why else would you have given then?

    I donated because I believe in Ron Paul and his message, and I want him as president. but the reality is, Ron Paul isn't mentioned enough to even be a household name. Tucker is making me want to puke listening to him... "Oh I'm gonna vote for Ron Paul" he says, yet spends 40 minutes of his hour talking so far about Obama Clitoris Romney and Huckabee without even bringing up Ron Paul. So he's just as much a part of the problem.

    WE DON'T NEED THE MEDIA!

    The Revolution will not be stopped and their ignoring us only exposes them even more. America has been roused. We are waking up and it will be a long time before we are ready for a nap again.

    The question in my mind is how many ron paul supporters are US citizens, registered republicans of legal voting age? This is key. It is an awesome movement that is now WORLDWIDE and very popular with young americans, unfortunately the US election requires US citizenship and legal voting age.

    I am committed to seeing Dr. Paul become President Paul, but my guaranteed vote for him is only 1.

    Depends on how effective those millions are being used by the official campaign.

    But the grassroots efforts make up at least half the battle....
