New Ron Paul Goal: $430k in 3 days…

The Paul campaign has changed the primary fundraising goal on their website from $4 million in the month of October to $430k in the next three days. The aim is to completely pay for a round of radio advertising in four early primary states.

To keep up with the action, they’ve raised $83,000 so far, click here!

    Do you think this means they’re throwing in the towel for the $4 million in October? That would be the first defeat for the campaign.

  2. Robert Milnes Says:

    Let’s hope so.

  3. Phil Says:

    They still have the $4 million goal page on the homepage, just not the opening tab.

    But they better drastically increase their pace of fundraising or they’re only going to get a little more than $2 million for the month. Still very impressive though.

    “Do you think this means they’re throwing in the towel for the $4 million in October? That would be the first defeat for the campaign.”

    I’ve been thinking about this. The October fundraising efforts as I write are just just of $1.4 million. 3/8’s of the goal with 1/3 of the month left. Admittedly these deadline oriented fundraising efforts tend to accerate as the deadline approaches. I think they are breaking fundraising down into finer granularity. The 430K in 3 days will be part of the 4 million in October, IMO.

    Milnes - You do realize that in order to become president with your “Progressive Alliance,” you need to first win the LP nomination, right? That would require having the support of delegates. Yes, it is still early, but the fact that you have ZERO supporters and have raised ZERO dollars seems to be an indication that ZERO people, other than yourself, support your “candidacy.” So in true loser fashion, you “hope” for the downfall of others. This is classic socialism in practice. Congrats for fulfilling every stereotype.

    GES, ALL the real libertarians are starvin marvin.

  7. G.E. Smith Says:

    Real libertarians are capitalists who add value to this world and make wealth for themselves in the pursuit of their own self interests.

    You are not a libertarian.

  8. Jackcjackson Says:

    Yes, the real libertarians such as myself are wealthy capitalists, and we will not be giving money to the LP welfare candidates. We wonder why these candidates have not gone out and made their own money to invest in their vanity campaigns. If you are midde aged and don’t have millions ( plural) of your own cash, you have failed in life.

  9. Robert Milnes Says:

    GES, right. I’m not a losertarian.

  10. G.E. Smith Says:

    Jack - That’s not what I said. You are a success or failure by your own measure. Some are particularly affected by interventionist forces. But regardless, the notion that to be a “real” libertarian like Robert Milnes you have to be “starvin marvin” like Robert Milnes is preposterous.

  11. Trent Hill Says:

    “GES, right. I’m not a losertarian.”

    Because you support a failing “strategy”, have raised no money, no supporters, and have stalked a newscaster.

    This makes you NOT a losertarian?

  12. Robert Milnes Says:

    Trent, the Real Losertarian, Ron Paul, will have to finish his loser campaign first.

  13. Robert Milnes Says:

    GES, That’s not what I said. I didn’t say real libertarian candidates must be starvin marvin. I said their campaigns are starvin marvin because Ron Paul, by going GOP has jumped to the front of the libertarian donations trough line & pigging out. But I don’t blame him so much. He’s surprised. I blame libertarians for supporting a gop instead of taking a skeptical look & passing in favor of the real libertarian candidates.

  14. Jeff Wartman Says:

    Robert Milnes—
    That’s not what G.E. said. He said you were failing to get the support of delegates or garner any real support in the campaign.

    Do you have any campaign staff structure at all? Any base from which to actually launch a campaign rather than just posting to blogs all day?

  15. Robert Milnes Says:

    Jeff Wartman, as a GOP/Paulie, (right?) why do you care about a real libertarian’s campaign status?

  16. Jeff Wartman Says:

    Milnes -
    I am absolutely not a Paulie. I am a dues paying member of the LP and a member of the Phillies campaign staff…

    GE brings up a good point…the point is that how can you expect to win anything when you have NO campaign structure in place…you think sitting around and just posting on random blogs is going to win you the Presidency? Are you that delusional?

  17. Robert Milnes Says:

    JW,Oh, I saw the RP video on your website. Now, when you point at my campaign you point at all the real libertarian candidates’ campaigns. Including Dr. Phillies. Others have received in the single or low double digit thousands + volunteering. A few state conventions, radio, blog interviews, display ads, emails etc. I’m in the same ballpark (no Phillies pun intended). & admit it, he & Root & Imperato have contributed to their own campaigns. You think Ron Paul has? So I repeat my No Cigar, Steve, complaint. Most libertarian support has gone to RP/RP. He Cannot & will not win the GOP nomination. Not even ONE primary. Yet libs keep supporting this instead of the real libertarian candidates.

  18. Robert Milnes Says:

    JW, I put my interviews etc. on the links on my campaign site.

  19. Jeff Wartman Says:

    Our campaign organization is probably the largest in the Libertarian field…

    The organization is massive and listed on the website. You don’t list a campaign organization because you do not have one.

    If you believe your campaign is anywhere near the status of the various LIbertarian frontrunners, you are seriously delusional.

  20. G.E. Smith Says:

    Milnes is a psycho fascist. He’s really upset that people have the free choice to support candidates other than him. You see, people are not smart enough to make their own choices, in Milnes’s mind. That’s why he, a “libertarian,” wants to rob money from you at gunpoint to make “wise” decisions FOR YOU. Such as investing in government cryogenics and eugenics plans, paying to ship blacks “back to Africa,” and assuming Communist collective control of property in order to fight non-existent global warming. That’s Progressive!

  21. Robert Milnes Says:

    Jeff Wartman, if you think you have a massive organization, you are seriously delusional.

  22. Jeff Wartman Says:

    Compared to most Libertarian campaigns, we have a great organization that is designed to continue to fight for the LP even after the election.

    Robert, you have done NOTHING but outlined a big government, non-Libertarian platform, raised NO money, and started NO organization.

    There’s a reason that 95% of Libertarians don’t even know, or care, that you’re in the race.

  23. Robert Milnes Says:

    Libertarians, listen to GES & lose. Support Ron Paul & lose. Support me & have a reasonable chance of winning. & get about 1/2 of what you want. Your choice. PS. I wouldn’t invest in beachfront property if I were you.

  24. G.E. Smith Says:

    My quote of the week: Robert Milnes - “Support me & have a reasonable chance of winning.”


    Institutionalize this man, now.

  25. Robert Milnes Says:

    GES, & what is your proposal for libertarian electoral victory, Ron Paul?

  26. Jeff Wartman Says:

    Robert Milnes—
    Any real Libertarian in the race, such as George Phillies, Christine Smith, Mike Jungozian, Barry Hess. Someone the LP can rally behind.

    What part of ‘most Libertarians don’t even know who you are or that you’re in the race’ don’t you understand?

    You don’t even understand the concept of Libertarianism or what it means to be a Libertarian.

  27. Robert Milnes Says:

    What’s your point, Jeff? I’m supposed to quit because you have a snotty nose? I don’t think so.

  28. Jeff Wartman Says:

    That you should have a reasonable expectation of the state of your campaign.

    Not that people should rally behind you because you can “win” which is laughable. Your own party barely knows you are in the race.

  29. Robert Milnes Says:

    Jeff, says you.

  30. Third Party Watch » Blog Archive » Ron Paul Very Close to 3 Day Goal Says:

    [...] About a week ago the Ron Paul campaign refocused their website’s fundraising efforts on a short-term goal of raising $430,000 in three days to air radio ads in some early primary states. The campaign came very close to meeting that number, falling short by just under $30,000. [...]
