Ron Paul unofficial fundraiser, Trevor Lyman has added an additional fundraising “MONEY BOMB” that has left some Ron Paul supporters disgruntled.
Apparently, Trevor Lyman has set up a new site for a new Ron Paul donation day “Money Bomb.” The new date is November 30th and the site has already attracted nearly 1,000 pledges as of this writing 11AM/EST. Another one remains scheduled for December 16th and has received close to 20,000 pledges.
The Nov 30th pledge site can be seen at rudysreadinglist.com.
The Dec 16th pledge site can be seen at teaparty07.com.
- This is such a dumbass idea. To split the event and cause confusion, are you guys retarded? the campaign didnt say that they were out of money, they just wanted to improve the flow. THEY HAVE OVER $10 Million to spend, they are not desperate. If we screw up this next money bomb by dividing it in two or three just because a few people overreacted, I am gonna flip. Does nobody realize that the media doesnt give two craps if we raise a million dollars every week for the next 10 weeks but tey will report non stop over the Christmas breal about Ron Paul raising $10 million in a day. The whole story will be how we did back to back record fundraising. Some people are so damn worried about lighting a sparkler that they forget that everybody comes for the finale. Stick to the plan and stop over thinking.
- too many moneybombs dilutes the media effect…better to just give as much as you can in next 3 weeks and unload on 12/16…id rather have the psycological impact of 10 million on 12-16 as opposed to 9.5…
- giving it a go is when you are doing something that doesnt really matter. Screwing up this drive that has been worked on for weeks, well, that just pisses off the people who have been talking to everyone and promising how huge the event will be. Do you know how hard it is to convert people when all they see from the campaign is disorganization, chicken little reactions and an overall plan that makes less sense. We billed this thing as the mother of all events and now after alot of people have spent time promoting it, we change the forecast of success. Its almost as bad as when we chipped in for an add and then the whole damn thing was changed and most of the people who paid were pissed. This sucks, we should have put it to a vote and let it be debated but no, a few people unilaterally are going to undermine the event that would have had the media talking and building anticipation for the three weeks before the primaries.The whole point was to get the media to be asking the question “What will Ron Paul do next”the answer, “who cares…all he did was repeat twice the same performance.”two five million money bombs does not equal 1 ten million bomb
I can not believe this. Why are you doing this? I am so ticked off people i am losing faith now in the Paul campaigns ability to run a campaign at all.
December 16th was the perfect day to which the media could not spin our efforts the way they did on November 5th. this could have brought major attention to Ron Paul.
I have been busting my hump beating the streets and contacting people in with my business contacts and have gathered over 300 people prepared to donate on December 16th and guess what? After this talk about changing dates many of my people prepared to donate are now losing faith in the revolution. PEOPLE WE CAN NOT BE DIVIDED HERE, WE MUST STICK TO OUR PLANS AND STAY UNITED. WHY DO I HAVE PEOPLE THAT I WORKED TO GET INVOLVED WITH DR. PAUL NOW SAYING THEY DON’T WANT TO THROW AWAY THIER MONEY OR THIER VOTE.
THIS IS A LOAD OF CRAP AND IF THIS KEEPS UP WE ARE GOING TO LOSE ALL THAT WE HAVE WORKED FOR.
WHY IS THE CAMPAIGN INVOLVED NOW? WE HAVE RAISED MORE MONEY OURSELVES THAN THE CAMPAIGN HAS SO WHY ARE THEY DICTATING OUR EFFORTS?
I AM EXTREMELY UPSET ABOUT THIS PEOPLE.
What Flap wants to know is why the hurry? Or does the formal Ron Paul campaign just want “CONTROL”?
Although Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani are and have been “ON AIR” in New Hampshire with multiple spots, Ron Paul has NOT purchased very much air time on New Hampshire television.
Where is Ron Paul spending that $8.8 million he has raised this quarter? Not on WMUR-TV, the only statewide television station in New Hampshire. Thus far the Paul campaign’s ad buy there has been rather meager.
From October 29 (when he went up on the air) through November 18, Paul spent $55,800 at WMUR to air 66 thirty-second ads over those three weeks. That’s about a third as many as Mitt Romney has put up in a single week this month on WMUR.
Alot of confusion among the Ronulans as to when to donate.
Maybe they will ask the Ron Paul campaign where their money is going?
