Dear Friend,

I would be honored to include you as a member of my campaign team. Together we can continue to fight for the principles and values which our nation was founded upon and which have made it great...principles like limited government, individual liberty, free markets and American sovereignty. I pledge to continue to be The Taxpayers' Best Friend in Congress as I vote for lower taxes, smaller government and to faithfully uphold our Constitution.
Ron Paul

Dr. Paul truly offers "Hope For America" and now you can "Be A Part Of It". For full details on Bio & Issues please see www.RonPaul2008.Com . It is my hope and belief that all supporters can afford to make a $25 donation to become a real part of this campaign. I request that you please make your donation @ www.RONPAUL2008.COM the same week that you sign this pledge. The campaign needs early money to win this election. Thank you!

Some of you are able to donate more than $25 @ one time. Please do so.

I start this pledge, because I believe this election is the most important in our lifetime. I believe working together we can raise the funds so Dr. Paul can be competitive against his, bought and paid for, opposition. Please note this isn't a challenge to a number of people, but to a number of donations. Anytime you make a donation equal to or above $25 from April 19, 2007 to April 19, 2008 please sign this pledge form.(YOU DON'T HAVE TO SIGN YOUR NAME, Publicly, if you don't want to) If you donate $50 sign twice. If you donate $100 you need to please sign this pledge 4 times(etc.). For you that set up a monthly payment plan or are a multiple doner you can let all us know your running total by adding the number beside your name, example: Mary L. (-4) (for $100 which equals four $25 donations). Mary L. (-10) (for $250 which equals ten $25 donations). By federal law you are allowed to donate a total of $2300 to the primary campaign. That is just putting off that new car and car payment for a few months for some of you. Five donations of $460 or Ten monthly payments of $230= $2300. If you are able to do so please consider this. That would be (-92) donations of $25.

Don't give until it hurts; Give until it feels GOOD !!!

Working together we can create a sucessful Victory Fund for Dr. Paul. Let's get started today...
