Ron Paul´s V for Vendetta = $4Million in 24 hours

A landmark moment in online political fundraising was made on Nov. 5, 2007. Presidential Candidate Ron “Dr. No” Paul from Texas passed $4 million in online fundraising in less than 24 hours.

Monday's drive was coordinated by an independent Web site but received the endorsement of Paul. Ron Paul's devoted believers chanted, in cult-like fashion, "Remember, Remember, the fifth of November" and “Power to the People” in their call to arms and cash. They utilized the “V-For Vendetta” chant recalling the feats of famed anarchist Guy Fawkes.

Guy Fawkes was a 17th century crusader who became famous for his attempt to “blow up the government.” On the eve of the impending coup, Fawkes was caught in the basement of parliament with 36 barrels of gunpowder. He failed his mission to blow the place up. He was caught, gave up the names of his fellow anarchists and was hung for treason.

I saw candidate Paul on MSNBC this morning, congratulating himself for raising so much internet money so quickly. Paul, looked straight into the camera and actually said, "I never saw “V for Vendetta,” not sure what it stands for and Fawkes name was invoked just as a fund-raiser method." (Something that makes you go "hmmmm.")

Candidate Paul, as we know, is running an ANTI Comprehensive Immigration Reform, ANTI War and ANTI George Bush campaign. Sounds a lot like Fawkes to me.

Does that mean you are pro- W. and pro-war. Seems like an eminently sound position for Paul and nothing like anarchy. On all three of the antis you mentioned Paul is joined by millions of American who are putting their money where their mouths are and those in congress who have seen the light on immigration reform -- secure borders first.

I think he looks like Zorro! Or maybe it is the Cisco Kid.

Paul is joined by millions of anarchist militia!!

Dee said...

And they all are on the ANTI sites. The MMs, Alipac, Stormfront, etc. etc. etc.

Dee said...

Ulty, No. He does not look like Zorro. He looks just like the mask from V for Vendetta.

I swear, Ulty. Your wife must never let you go out or go to the movies!

Dee said...

Maybe you can get her to take you this weekend Ulty. I hear American Gangster is good.

It is the pro illegals who are the anarchists, not the antis. Anarchists are one that fight the system, not honor it. The MM etal are not militia either. They are regular American citizens who care about our laws and our sovereignty as a nation. You do like to spin the truth, don't you dee?

Dee said...

If RPaul is not an anarchist, why did he promote his "Guy Fawkes Day". Fawkes is a well known Anarchist who was popularized recently in the movie V for Vendetta.

Also, all the recent ads I am seeing for him advocate Revolution, overthrowing the Govt (Bush & Cheney) and him holding up "We the People" Constitution poster. That, Anon, is definition of Anarchy!

I wasn't talking about Ron Paul. I was talking about Americans who are for the rule of law.

Besides it isn't anarchy wanting change in our government that is within the laws and Constitution of this country. Anarchy means working against those laws.
