Martin Luther King Day "Money Bomb" On Course To Raise Millions For Paul
Ron Paul revolution marches on

Ron Paul's presidential campaign is set to raise millions in one day for the third time in as many months as thousands of supporters hit the internet to donate to the latest "money bomb".

Over 10,000 visitors to the website http://www.freeatlast2008.com/ have pledged to donate to Dr Paul today, but many more are expected to take part in the mass donation day organized by grass roots supporter Trevor Lyman.

At time of writing over $700,000 dollars has already been raised by supporters who are saluting Martin Luther King day by donating to the candidate who is campaigning on a platform of peace and individual liberty.

The total can be tracked throughout the day via the graph below.

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.

Without such dedicated support the Congressman's campaign would have been hard pushed to continue beyond last week's primaries, but Ron Paul has emphatically pledged to stay in the race for the long haul.

"Most of the mainstream media continue to pretend that we do not exist," reads Paul's statement. "Yet soon the race will be down to four candidates-Romney, McCain, Huckabee, and me, and there is no stopping us, as Tim Russert grudgingly pointed out the other night. Thanks to you, we are in this all the way through a brokered convention." Paul wrote on his website yesterday after placing second in the Nevada caucus.

"We can't let this movement be stopped, nor slowed. I promise you that I will continue to pour all my heart and mind and strength into the battle," he concluded.

In addition to the donation day, supporters are taking to the streets in every major city in the US with thousands of marches and meetups organized via http://www.ronpaulmarch.com/ and http://ronpaul.meetup.com/

The rest of Ron Paul's written statement, below, focuses on his admiration for Dr. King. Paul calls him a "great freedom fighter," and says King would be disappointed with the current president's approach toward civil rights.


“It is especially fitting that we take the time to reflect on one man’s struggles to defend our constitutional freedoms during this primary election season. Jan. 15 was the birthday of the great freedom fighter, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and on Monday, we honor him nationwide for his sacrifice and love of liberty for all people.

“To me, the timing is more than a coincidence. The American people, regardless of color or creed, have the opportunity to choose a candidate who will uplift the ideals for which Dr. King fought -- and died.

“The fight for freedom -- the preservation of our civil rights -- is the fight of our lives. Sadly, after Dr. King’s passing, we are faced with a violation of our civil rights in the same vein as Jim Crow: The Patriot Act. I have stood against this and all unconstitutional violations of Americans' civil rights, and will continue Dr. King’s charge, as president.

“Dr. King would be disappointed in our current administration for more than its continued disregard for civil rights, as he stated: ‘a nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift, is approaching spiritual doom.’

We need to change our interventionist foreign policy, and take care of our brothers and sisters at home. Our nation is in a crisis: we are spending billions on war overseas, while those around us are suffering and losing jobs, homes, and hope. It is inexcusable; we must solve the economic crisis at home, and bring hope to America.

“Dr. King’s heroic actions should resonate with us today, as we recognize that our votes strengthen the fight for our civil rights. Liberty is the true antidote to racism, and freedom -- limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights -- can uplift us all.”
