The Ron Paul campaign is hoping to once again raise millions in
a single day on January 21st, Martin Luther King day.
So far over 6000 visitors to the website http://www.freeatlast2008.com/
have pledged to donate to Dr Paul on the national holiday in another
mass donation day organized by grass roots supporter Trevor Lyman.
Lyman was the brains behind the record breaking
donation days on November 5th and December 15th last year that
raised $4.3 and $6 million respectively, pushing Paul's fourth
quarter earnings to around $20 million, making him the biggest
GOP fundraiser closing out 2007.
In addition to raising donations, the website is
encouraging supporters to take to the streets:
This is our day to blanket the streets with the
message of liberty. Our goal is to make every city look like
the Lincoln Memorial lawn of Martin Luther King's "I Have
a Dream" speech.
March through your cities and towns, contact your
for more information and make this day a day for freedom. Confirm
your commitment to march at RonPaulMarch.com!

Paul commented, “Rosa Parks is one of my heroes,
Martin Luther King is a hero because they practice the Libertarian
principle of civil disobedience, non violence.” He continued,
"Racism is a collectivist idea you see people in groups,
civil libertarians like my self see everybody as an important
individual. It is not the color of the skin that is important
as Martin Luther King said it is the character that is important.”
“I attack two wars that Blacks are suffering from”
Paul said, referring to the Iraq war and the drug war. Paul also
said, “I would pardon all blacks, all whites, everybody
that was convicted of non violent drug crimes.”
