Ron Paul Tea Party To Break One-Day Fundraising Record Dec. 16th

The Ron Paul Revolution is looking to break the final remaining single-day fundraising record that was set by Hillary Clinton who reportedly raised almost $6.2 million on June 30, 2007. It should be made clear that the Hillary record certainly wasn’t made by thousands of individual donors and likely was “pledged money” rather than actual money hitting her account, if the number is even accurate. John Kerry also brought in $5.6 million one day during the Democratic nomination 2004 convention after the primaries. But on December 16th, Ron Paul’s grassroots supporter-organized “Tea Party” is expected to raise over $6 million and this is before the primaries and without the help of a large party convention. Paul already holds the one-day internet fundraising record of $4.3 million.

Pay attention America, liberty is brewing.

On December 16th, 1773 the Sons of Liberty staged the “Boston Tea Party” protesting British taxation policies by dumping crates of tea into the Boston Harbor, helping to spark the American Revolution.

Now, on December 16th, 2008 Ron Paul supporters are staging the “Tea Party ’07” protesting the unconstitutional inflation tax by dumping millions of dollars into the Ron Paul campaign.

Why is $6 million a legitimate number to expect on the 16th? During the weeks leading up to the November 5th fundraising haul, around 18,000 Paul supporters pledged to participate by giving $100 each. This translated into over $4.3 million in donations given by over 38,000 donors (more than twice the number who pledged). Now on the Tea Party ’07 website there is over 33,000 pledges to donate on the 16th. Double that number and the total is easily over $6 million. Plus gambling911.com is saying at least $6 million. The goal for the day is $10 million so don’t be too surprised if Ron Paul’s support base runs up the score.

Paul’s supporters around the country are planning to celebrate the Tea Party with meetings, rallies, speeches, and parties. There’s the rally in Boston, there’s events from LA to New York to Seattle to Florida to D.C. and everywhere in between. They will be marching through the streets in Vegas,

The Ron Paul Revolution isn’t just a national phenomenon. Ron Paul fans around the world will be having celebrations of their own across Europein Strasbourg France, in Munich, in Britain, in Switzerland, and likely in other nations as well.

Paul’s grassroots fundraising power is unparalleled in the history of presidential elections.Paul is expected to have the highest 4th quarter donation total among the GOP candidates. Giuliani has next the highest 4th quarter total at $11.6 million.

  2. My contribution went out a few minutes after midnight last night. At 11:00 AM EST the west coast is just getting out of bed, as the campaign nears $2 MILLION in contributions in 11 hours wih most people in bed. I see an $18 million quarter as a reality with the possibility of $20 million for the quarter very, very likely.
    One word of caution. Many supporters are new to politics and the system. YOU MUST be a registered voter and a REGISTERED REPUBLICAN (if only for 10 minutes)to vote for Ron Paul in the Primary elections. NEXT we need DEDICATED Ron Paul delegates on the ballot. You can DO IT!
