Ron Paul fundraising “fill the quill” challenge

Just a few quick notes on fundraising for the Ron Paul campaign.  Monday Sept. 17th was Constitution Day, which marked the 220th signing of the U.S. Constitution.  I received the following message from the Ron Paul campaign:

Today is Constitution Day!  It marks the 220th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. For Ron Paul every day is Constitution Day.To celebrate, we have a special campaign that ends Friday.  The quill pen on our website will fill up each time someone makes a donation to the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign.  Our goal is 1787 donations.
If you believe, as Dr. Paul does, that the Constitution should be defended, please help us meet our goal by sending your most generous donation today:

And don’t forget to check back on our website to see our progress.  Help Dr. Paul defend the Constitution as our next President.

I of course immediately made a contribution.  When I contributed they were at just 75 contributions, but as of about 5 minutes ago it was up to 1,263 with 1 day left to go!  Can you make a small contribution too?  Not only to help challenge along, but also to give a boost to the campaign?  Right now is a critical time for donations because the 3rd quarter for campaign contributions is coming to a close on Sept. 30th; the bigger the total dollars in the campaign fund, the better the media coverage will be.  And of course the better off the Ron Paul campaign will be going into the primaries.   

Think about it.  And in the meantime, read this letter from Ron Paul that came across my inbox this morning:

Message from Ron Paul

Dear friend, Our American way of life is under attack.  And it is up to us to save it.

The world’s elites are busy forming a North American Union.  If they succeed, as they did in forming the European Union, the good ol’ USA will only be a memory.  We cannot let that happen.

The UN wants to confiscate our firearms and impose a global tax.  The UN elites want to control the oceans with the Law of the Sea Treaty.  And they want to use our military to police the world.

Our right to own and use property is fading because bureaucrats and special interests are abusing eminent domain.

Our right to educate our children as we choose is under assault.  “No Child Left Behind” is seeing to that.  And our right to say “no” to forced mental screening of our school-aged children is nearly gone.

The elites gave us a national ID card.  They also gave us the most misnamed legislation in history:  The Patriot Act.  And these same people are pushing to give amnesty to illegal immigrants and erase our national borders.

Record government debt is putting a burden on our children and grandchildren that is shameful.

Yes.  Our American way of life is under attack.  And it’s understandable that many are concerned, even discouraged, about the kind of country our children and grandchildren will inherit.

But we must never let discouragement become surrender.

One reason I am NOT discouraged is because I know I am not fighting alone.  Each day I head out I know that you and thousands of other patriotic, freedom-loving Americans are right beside me, standing brave and true for what is good and right.

I need your help now, more than ever, to save the country we love…for the people we love.

My wife Carol and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary early this year.  We are proud parents of five children and 18 grandchildren. We love them very much, as I know you love your family.

As a U.S. congressman, I always think about the well-being of my family and of all the families of our great nation when I cast a vote or introduce legislation.  I also remember that I have sworn a solemn oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States.

For me, upholding that oath is the first and best way to preserve and protect the blessed American way of life for our children and grandchildren.

And now you know why I’m running for president of the United States.

I ask for your help.  Please send your maximum donation today by going to .
