News

  • We grew by 718 total pledges yesterday! Welcome aboard !!
  • Website hosting issues : As many of you know the site has been up and down for the past day. This was due to a large amount of concurrent users accessing the three sites TeaParty07.com, RudysReadingList.com and RonPaulBlimp.com.  The issue is being resolved by putting each website on it’s own hosting plan. This means that each site will now have exactly the same hosting situation that was in place on the date of the ThisNovember5th.com fund raising drive. TeaParty07.com is taking longer to propagate for certain technical reasons. The site is working for some and will continue to come online for more and more throughout the day. The site should be up and running in full by this evening. I apologize for this situation.

 

  • The Ron Paul Blimp project has reached $385,500 in pledges!

Here is the original letter from the campaign.

with one comment

From some of the responses I’ve received I’ve gathered that many of you are not on the official campaigns mailing list. I’m sorry for the confusion.

For your benefit I’m sending the email sent out by the campaign on November 20th. Hopefully this will make my last email much more understandable.

I would like to add one additional thought for us to consider. There are well over 100 million adults in this country who have not yet donated to Dr. Paul. Many of us feel donating on one day will detract from the other. I argue that rather than thinking about cutting up the pie in smaller pieces, we should simply make the pie bigger. The “limited wealth” mindset may seem more rooted in reality, but it is actually untrue and defeatist in nature. If we want to have abundance we must envision it, believe in it, and take action to achieve it. The truth is the money is there and we need only convince more people to support Dr. Paul to be victorious. Please think about it, and thank you for all of your efforts.

Here is the letter from the campaign headquarters.

***

November 20, 2007

During the first few days of October, we announced our fundraising goal for the fourth quarter: $12 million raised by December 31.

But there’s more: we need to have spent it by then, too.

If we were to raise the entire $12 million in the last week of December, we would meet our fundraising goal for the quarter. But Ron Paul would stand little chance of winning the Republican nomination, because that money would have come in too late.

Time is of the essence. You see, we need to raise money well before we plan to spend it. That’s because most of the expenditures that we make need to be paid for weeks in advance. For example, we need to buy crucial airtime for the end of December right now.

The sooner we raise this money, the sooner that we can spread Dr. Paul’s message – our message – in the early primary states. Time truly is money.

Fact is, we only have about two weeks to raise money for the early primaries.

If you wait a month from now to donate, your money will only be spent after Iowa caucus-goers and New Hampshire primary voters have made up their minds.

We are rapidly running out of time. The Iowa caucus is just 44 days away. New Hampshire is in 49 days. With so much ground to make up, we can’t afford to waste a single day.

As a result, we are spending faster than the rate at which we are raising money. In October alone, we raised $2.8 million, but our campaign spent over $3.1 million.

We cannot afford to wait for bursts of press activity. What we need is sustained attention in the news. What better way to do this than by continuing to raise money at a rapid pace now? We need to keep our momentum going.

Help us win in New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina, and Nevada.

Make your most generous contribution as soon as you can: https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate.

RudysReadingList.com vs. TeaParty07.com – let the market decide

with 5 comments

Yesterday the letter from the campaign was forwarded to me several hundred times with each email beginning with some idea of what we should do. Most all of the letters fell into two camps. One was the “lets donate now” camp and the other was the “don’t change the Tea Party!” camp.

Personally I think we can do both. We can mass donate on the 30th (see http://www.RudysReadingList.com) and create another media blitz. Because TeaParty07.com is in place we can direct the traffic and attention from the RudysReadingList.com blitz into TeaParty07.com.

Some people can only afford to donate once and we’ll lose them if they donate on the 30th, but the buzz we create should bring in enough Ron Paul supporters to fill the missing donors. So, after the 30th we simply pick things up and move forward with the TeaParty. That’s a win/win and I would love to see that happen.

**

However- the true, best and really only way to deal with this is just to “let the market decide”. For all of you who say, “We should only have the Tea Party day!”. You want to force all the people who want to donate sooner to your will. That’s not right. And for all of you who say, “We should all donate now!”. You want to force all those who want to save and donate to the Tea Party to your will, and that’s not right.

So the only real solution is the most simple. Put both sites out there and let the market decide. Maybe both days will be successful, maybe only one. That’s up to the collective conscious now. I can’t tell you what to do because when I do half of you get angry with me, and if I change my mind to satisfy the other side then then once again half of you get angry with me.

So there we have it, both sites are up (I’m adding graphics and banners for http://www.RudysReadingList.com shortly) and you can promote both, one or none. It’s all up to you and that’s the way it has been and should be.

In the end I think we have to admit.. it would be best if we could make both events hugely successful. There can be no complaints with winning twice. But again- it is what it is and will be what it will be. It’s up to you now..

**

Some are asking why is the theme for the November 30th donation day RudysReadingList.com?

This was chosen because it reflects one of Ron Paul’s campaign positions, it is an attack against the “front runner” and because of all the objections to Ron Paul held within the current republican base the stance on the war is the strongest. If we can change their minds about the war on terror I think Ron Paul will win.

If you are interested in donating on November 30th please visit http://www.RudysReadingList.com and make your pledge.

Picking back up..

with 3 comments

I apologize for the lack of reporting over the weekend, traveling and settling in took all my time. I’ll keep it short today then pick up from here with regular emails.

I’m happy to report we’re up to 17,645 subscribers. Later today I expect we’ll reach 18,000, putting us at the same level of pledges as the ThisNovember5th.com event.

We’re done with the grunt work and into the gravy.

From now on everything you do to spread the word means beating our last event. Every one you tell about TeaParty07.com is one more person who will help us send the mainstream media into a tizzy. You know it’s time for a change in this country and this is your means to make that change happen.

Please commit to 30 minutes a day. Call your friends, call in on the radio, send out emails with links to videos about the event. 18,000 people committing to 30 minutes a day for 26 days with more joining us every day. An army like that can reach millions of people on the internet. Will you do your part?

Will you bring them home?
