In a little more than five days, you raised over $852,000 online for the Ron Paul presidential campaign. Our original goal was $500,000, but you blazed past that amount in just a couple of days. Now, you're almost to the $1,000,000 mark. Congratulations and thank you!
Your extraordinary efforts have caused the press to take notice. The Hill newspaper, a publication here in Washington read by the professional political types, reported the other day on your success. The article was accurate and positive. And you can be sure it caused the political class here in D.C. to uncomfortably take notice.
This article about your success might be the first, but it certainly won’t be the last. When we reach our new goal of $1,000,000 by midnight tomorrow, many more such articles will appear throughout the country – and the political “experts” will be scratching their heads trying to understand this Ron Paul Revolution.
Remember how much press we received last quarter when we had more cash in the bank than John McCain? We couldn’t have paid for that much publicity.
The media might be able to erase post-debate online polls that showed Ron Paul won. They might be able to dismiss Ron Paul’s support as "just the Internet" (whatever that means). But they can't dismiss the fact that thousands of people from Manchester to Pasadena are supporting Ron Paul’s campaign for president with their hard-earned money -- with $5 donations, $2,300 ones, and every amount in between.
We have about 34 hours left to reach our goal of $1,000,000 in seven days. When we reach it, we'll get $10 million worth of publicity.
As Dr. Paul wrote two days ago, "You and I are engaged in an historic enterprise."
We have until midnight tomorrow. Please donate today. Go to http://www.ronpaul2008.com/ .
