I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Ron Paul Has Another Big Haul

Yesterday was the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and, to mark the occasion, Ron Paul’s supporters staged another successful fund-raising drive:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul’s supporters raised over $6 million Sunday to boost the 10-term Texas congressman’s campaign for the White House.

Called a “Money Bomb,” the goal was to raise as much money as possible on the Internet in one day. The campaign’s previous fundraiser brought in $4.2 million.

At midnight EST, donations were over $6 million, according to the campaign Web site. Those donations are processed credit card receipts, said Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton. Benton said the median donation is about $50 in the fundraiser, which was the idea of Paul supporters who are not officially connected to the campaign.

Thanks most to this latest moneybomb, the campaign surpassed it’s $ 12 million goal for the quarter early yesterday and now reports collecting more than $ 18 million since October 1st. Not bad for an insurgent campaign.
