Now Will The Establishment Be Forced to Admit Admit Ron Paul Is The Real Deal?
by Paul Joseph Watson
Ron Paul’s presidential campaign received a whopping $4.2 million in donations over 24 hours yesterday, eclipsing any of the other Republican candidates and putting debunkers to shame who had attempted to discredit the campaign by suggesting Paul’s support was imaginary, inflated and exaggerated as a result of Internet spamming.
Here’s some news for the scoffers and the establishment talking heads who have engaged in a propaganda assault to try and hoodwink Americans into thinking Paul is not a frontrunner – $4.2 million doesn’t grow on trees and it isn’t plucked out of cyberspace without real people being behind it.
The Texas Congressman has now raised over $7 million since October 1st, putting him well on track to achieve a goal of $12 million by the end of the year.
“Paul’s total deposed Mitt Romney as the single-day fundraising record holder in the Republican presidential field,” reports the Associated Press. “When it comes to sums amassed in one day, Paul now ranks only behind Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton, who raised nearly $6.2 million on June 30, and Barack Obama.”
Paul’s campaign raised over 5 million in the third quarter and had over 5 million cash on hand at the start of this quarter, figures that initially baffled those in the mainstream media who completely underestimated the reach and power Ron Paul’s campaign of freedom and limited government had, before engaging in a deliberate smear policy in order to dismiss his chances.
The liars who claimed that Ron Paul’s success was a result of “spambots”, as was inferred by a recent article, or that his entire support base was a complete hoax, as was ludicrously announced by a Murdoch owned newspaper, are looking very stupid today as debunkers are forced to eat their words and accept the fact that Ron Paul’s popularity is wildly accelerating.
The “spambots” claim took another battering today as it was confirmed that the source of the emails was not Ron Paul’s office, and was most likely a deliberate attempt to discredit his campaign on behalf of a rival, according to PC World experts who analyzed the e mails.
The concept for the November 5th “money bomb” which was responsible for the surge in donations yesterday originates from the movie V For Vendetta, the 2005 cult dystopian hit which grasped the imaginations of many with its extreme relevance to modern day politics in America. It was organized in large part through a specially constructed website at http://www.thisnovember5th.com/
Another donation day is scheduled for Veterans Day, this Sunday, November 11.
The meteoric success of Ron Paul’s campaign thus far is also reflected in figures we highlighted this weekend, revealing the websites of all the other presidential candidates to be flat and floundering, attracting no new visitors whatsoever. In contrast www.ronpaul2008.com has seen an 80+% rise in hits over the past three months.
