The Boston Tea Party

It begins tonight. Standing now at a bit over $11.5 million for the quarter, you can follow along to see how that thermometer climbs throughout the day of December 16th. I still think $10 million is possible. I’ll be taking a part, as I did on November 5th.

That said, believe it or not, I can’t really dispute Billy’s admonition that Ron Paul get out of government and find honest work. On the other hand, there’s a Danneskjoldesque element to this I can’t help but support. At any rate, I’d have to concede that if one were to commit to working within the system to try and change it, Paul has done an admirable job marked by integrity to his stated oaths. Perhaps others would do it differently but I’m convinced he’s always done as best as he could and his heart is clearly in the right place.

Here’s something produced by a Dutch guy who’d like you to take a look at the Boston Tea Party.

    Better than Paul's own site is this:

    with several graphs updated every ten minutes or so, along with the thermometer.

    Also see:

    Again, it's the grass roots that have better tools than the campaign itself.

    I knew of the latter, which I think I've linked to, but not the former.

    As I sit here at almost 7am pacific (10 eastern), they're over the $1.5 million mark and all the parameters at paulcash are exceeeding their same parameters for Nov 5th (which page is accessible here:

    This is going to be fun top watch and I'm going to have a hard time staying away from it.

    I'd like to see him take some of that money he's raising and put that You Tube Video Clip on National TV.

    Rumor has it that he's going national this week, possibly with one or more non-campaign created commercials.
