History Lesson!

So small history lesson for you today. How many people know the significance of November 5th?

It was on this date, in 1605 that Guy Fawkes attempted to enter the House of Parliament in London, England and execute the gunpowder plot.

Perhaps when you were younger you heard the rhyme:

Remember, remember the fifth of November,

The gunpowder, treason and plot,

I know of no reason

Why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.
Well hopefully in a less "explosive" manner we can all show our patriotism today. All you have to do is donatate $100 to Ron Paul here. The most amazing thing, 17,000 people have already committed to donation $100 each. That's 1.7 million dollars raised in a single day. The goal was $5 million dollars (a lofty goal indeed) but 1.7 million would still be the single largest day of donations in history for a presidential candidate. ANY candidate. So far today Ron Paul has already raised 1.5 million dollars at last check (12 hours down) and still had 12 hours to go.

Edit to add: to follow the donations for today you can do it at:

Edit2: Ron raised 4.2 million dollars in a single day! Go Ron Go! Largest single day of earning for ANY GOP candidate. And people say he isn't a "legitimate" candidate?

This is Very cool, Ron Paul raised the largest amount in the republican field through this campaign. I will back this candidate and support them too.
