6 hours....434,000

Can we, fellow Ron Paul supporters, raise $434,000 in just 6 hours? That is just over $1200/minute. I say we go for it and see if we can't hit $3million this month....

Ron Paul Meetup Groups - MAP

Meetup group maps for some of the Presidential Candidates....Isn't it amazing how few meetup groups there are for Rudy, Hillary, Obama compared to Ron Paul? OK, no it is not amazing at all. Ron Paul is great, and the others are a disgrace to this country and themselves.

Drop Zone, Part II

Some people have asked me "Zag, what exactly is a drop zone?" So I thought I would explain it here as well as make an update so that I could resubmit it to the proper sites as well as explain how I plan on not only making ChipIn work for me, but help others as well.

A Drop Zone is simply a place where people that Skydive can go to...well, Skydive :) Where I am located there is not a place to skydive within 2 hours in any direction, so I would like to create that business here. It is a tourist area, so there will be plenty of customers during the summer months.

OK, that's cool, but $150,000? That is a lot of money. True!, $150k is indeed a lot of money, but for that money this is what we will be purchasing:

  • 1 Cessna 182 (used, older)
  • 4 tandem skydiving rigs
  • 4 student skydiving rigs
  • Misc. Drop Zone related gear (goggles, jumpsuits, etc.)

Sounds dangerous!!!. Yeah, it does sound dangerous and in some ways it is. You are exiting an aircraft at 10,000 feet in the air, so in that respect it is dangerous, however, the training for people that skydive is also intense and more than anything SAFETY comes first.

So Zag, you mentioned how you were going to use ChipIn to help others as well, how do you plan to do that?

I plan on using ChipIn to help others by using a percentage of monthly profit to donate to other ChipIn's like this one (example) to make their Chipin a reality.

So how much are you planning on chipping in Zag

I am making a promise to chipin to other projects the same amount that I raise in my own chipin, so If I raise $150k, then I will chipin money to to other projects until I have chipped in $150k. If I raise $30k, then I will chip in $30k.

The goal for me is to get my business off the ground and up and running and then contributing to helping others with their projects whatever they may be with a portion of my own profits.

OK Zag, that's cool and all but why $150k instead of say the $30k you would need to go and get a bank loan for the rest?

Good question. I thought long and hard about this before I decided to make the ChipIn thing. The answer is, what would I really feel better about? Would I feel better about borrowing $120-150k from the bank and then paying that back with interest over the course of 10+ years, or would I feel better not having to pay back the bank and maybe helping someone else start their business, or funding other projects that people might need money for? Well, I feel that I would be much happier being indebtted to my fellow man and paying that back by helping others much like I am asking people for help to get my business started.

Feel free to ask me any questions. I will always answer them even if it takes a day or two :)




Well, since my last post "Seven Days" We have raised just about $500,000. $500,000 isn't bad in 2 days, not by a long shot, but we have $1.7m to go! Make sure to get the word out to all your friends, we need to pull in another $1.7m this month if at all possible

RON PAUL 2008!

24 October 2007


There are 7 days left in the month. Want to hit the $4mil goal? Well, we need to raise $2.22mil in 7 days. I know that we can accomplish this goal. Let your friends and family know, let strangers know, Let's get $4million this month for the Ron Paul campaign!

Help us start our Drop Zone.... $1 to $?...Anything will help :)

We are all helping Ron Paul raise money so that we can get him elected. So far we have raised fantastic amounts. I am going to ask all my friends, family and everyone else that might be even the slightest bit interested to donate whatever they can to help me start my Drop Zone. If you want more information, feel free to email me (I think my email is on here) or leave a comment with yours and I will happily give you more details. We are not looking to start big, and this is about the minimum we need to get this thing started.

Take the PoliticalBase Who Should I vote for Quiz

Who should I vote for for president in 2008?

You match up well with...

Ron Paul - 65 match
Congrats, you have very socially conservative Libertarian...err... Republican points of view. Ron Paul, who is known in Washington as "Dr. No" because of consistently rejects proposals that do not adhere strictly to the original constitution, was once the Libertarian Party's pick for President till he changed sides a few years ago. He's a favorite of technologists and the Internet community mostly for his hands off approach to... well anything.
Dennis Kucinich - 65 match
Denis Kucinich, an Ohio congressman, is a far-left liberal democrat. He has the most extreme proposals for nearly every issue including creating a single-payer system of universal health care; an immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq and replacing them with an international security force; and guaranteeing quality education with free pre-kindergarten and college. He even wants to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. Needless to say, Kucinich is a no-hope contender.
Mike Gravel - 57 match
Mike Gravel is your chosen candidate. He is a former senator from Alaska who is deeply left-wing and has spent his time since the Senate, which he left in 1980, in the private sector. His credited for his efforts in ending the draft following the Vietnam War and the release of the Pentagon Papers as well. He has been an outspoken proponent of direct democracy, gay rights, and even making it a felony to keep troops in Iraq. Gravel is bringing new ideas to the table but they are only attracting less than 1% of Democrats.
Take the test.

Ron Paul is now a 'top-tier' candidate !!!

Donate $5 to Ron Paul by simply blogging this!
http://www.usaelectionpolls.com has written up a piece proving how Ron Paul was treated unfairly at the CNBC TV Debate the other day. He was so offened by such gross bias that he decided it was right to donate to Ron Paul in defiance.

I recommend going over there to check out their analysis, at the very least. If you'd like to do the "free" donate option:
Step 1: Repost this, or some variation of it, INCLUDING THE LINK TO THE ARTICLE, in your blog or maybe even the Myspace forums would qualify if you get there first. (I suspect there'd be no point in including that last part in your repost
Step 2: Email usaelectionpolls@gmail.com with the link etc.
The article: http://www.usaelectionpolls.com/2008/articles/ron-paul-silenced-at-cnbc-debate-transcript.html

I found this to be quite funny.

As I wrote in the previous thread, Ron Paul is not included because his weird camp followers have demonstrated over and over that they’ll do anything to stack the results of internet polls.

This is very true of Giuliani

For Rudy Giuliani, 9/11 is the answer. To almost anything, it seems.

After all, it's why America fell in love with him on that darkest of days, when the mayor was the only person on TV reassuring the nation. It's why he's the Republican front-runner for President.

"For me, every day is an anniversary of Sept. 11," he said in Florida last month.

CNN debates US foreign policy on the world

Listen to this young guy "Ben", he is completely clueless as to what is going on not only in the world today, but in our history. He doesn't want to hear that the actions of the USA around the world because of our foreign policy might, just might cause people to not want us in their countries. The guy is so clueless it is almost comical.

Sadly my friends, this is the kind of person that we are up against. The kind of person that screams "Them there muslims is Crazy" and just simply doesn't get the truth of the matter.

How can WE as Ron Paul supporters work to educate these people as to what is going on and the reasons for people disliking us?

I would suggest that if you haven't already, that you start by reading the 9/11 Commission report. It is located HERE (PDF)
