    Proving again his ability to raise significant cash online, Ron Paul has raised over $3 million since midnight via his website.

    In what is being called a "money bomb," Paul's fervent backers spread the word that today they'd blast their candidate with Internet contributions, setting up a website, "This November 5th," to push the plan. An aide said they had nothing to do with the effort.

    "Supporters have spontaneously organized what I can only refer to as a one-day attack of donations," said Paul spokeswoman Kate Rick. "We started at midnight with $2.77 million raised for the quarter, and have, as of 9:36 am, climbed up to over $4.1." (as of 8:00 PM over $5.1)


    While claiming not to be responsible for the "bombing," Paul's camp has certainly not lessened enthusiasm with a set of red numbers on their website that spin upward to show his total raised with every refresh click. Another site not formally affiliated with the campaign has set up a graph showing Paul's ascending contributions since midnight.

    (I am one of the Ron Paul freaks supporters ;D )

    I'm liking Ron Paul more and more... mainly because he seems the lesser of evils (for both repub and dem candidates).  I agree completely with him on the patriot act  [smiley=badidea.gif], gun control  [smiley=badidea.gif],  free trade, NATO, NAFTA, and the war on drugs.  Other things (that I will not mention) I don't get.
