Ron Paul Donation Site Heads To 20K

November 21, 2007

The latest Ron Paul donation site may soon go over the 20,000 pledge mark, shattering the total of the last big “Money Bomb,” which drew over 18,000 on November 5th. But does the timing present a problem? The presidential campaign of Jeffersonian conservative Ron Paul (R-Tex) itself sent out an e-mail yesterday pleading for donations sooner rather than later (see below).

Over at, some 200 supporters argue the pros and cons of the timing of the upcoming “Money Bomb.” Meanwhile, The Ron Paul campaign doubtless wishes to see the Dec 16th fund raiser become an enormous success, but is making the emphatic point that it needs as much funding now – as opposed to next month – as possible.

Certainly the upcoming donation day seems destined to be a success. It is conceivable that there is an equivilent group that has decided not to “sign up” but still intends to donate, so the actual total to be donated may be much more. The fund-raiser on November 5th gained the presidential campaign of Ron Paul (R-Tex) some $4.2 million – which indeed was more than double what was formally pledged.

The “Money Bomb” concept was worked out independently of the Ron Paul campaign. Supporters pledged to give $100 dollars on a certain date to support the Jeffersonian conservative, small-government effort that Ron Paul has been mounting.

The site can be seen here:

The memo from the Ron Paul campaign regarding the timing of donations reads, in part, as follows:


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.
