Can we get somebody to accept Bitcoins, then sell them and donate them to the campaign?

I'd rather not support Ron Paul. While I agree with a few of his ideas, he is mostly a nutcase.

What about him makes him a nutcase?

This is illegal.  You cannot make donations for other people.  If you want to play with fire, go for it, though.  Sell yourself and donate yourself if you really want to, though.

I doubt it would be a problem for the person at the end who actually made the donation.  The limit is $2,500 a person I believe, so the person collecting could do up to that amount.  I suppose people who had already contributed the max and used bitcoins as a method to get more money in would be violating some FEC rules, but I can't see anything coming of it because you can't prove who the money came from. I doubt people would really go through so much trouble just so they could give more money to politicians.  And as far as anyone is concerned all the money came from you.

Over the years Karl Denninger has done a good job of pointing out all the opportunities Ron Paul has had to make a real difference but has so far passed on.

Lame.

Newsletter controversy
Further information: Ron Paul newsletter controversy

Controversial claims made in Ron Paul's newsletters, written in the first person narrative, included statements such as "Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day." Along with "even in my little town of Lake Jackson, Texas, I've urged everyone in my family to know how to use a gun in self defense. For the animals are coming."[134] Two other statements that garnered controversy were "opinion polls consistently show only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions". In an article titled "The Pink House" the newsletter wrote that "Homosexuals, not to speak of the rest of society, were far better off when social pressure forced them to hide their activities."[135]

At the end of 2007, both the New York Sun and the New York Times Magazine reprinted passages from early 1990s publications of Paul's newsletters, attacking them for content deemed racist.[14] These were the same newsletters that had been used against Paul in his 1996 congressional campaign.

On January 8, 2008, the day of the New Hampshire primary, The New Republic published a story by James Kirchick quoting from selected newsletters published under Paul's name.[52][136]

Responding to the charges in a CNN interview, Paul denied any involvement in authoring the passages. Additionally, Paul's campaign claimed through a press release that the quotations had come from an unnamed ghostwriter and without Paul's consent. Paul again denounced and disavowed the "small-minded thoughts," citing his 1999 House speech praising Rosa Parks for her courage; he said the charges simply "rehashed" the decade-old Morris attack.[137] CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer said that the writing "Didn't sound like the Ron Paul I've come to know."[138] Later, Nelson Linder, president of the Austin chapter of the NAACP, also defended Paul.[139]
“    “Everybody knows in my district that I didn't write them and I don't speak like that... and I've been reelected time and time again and everyone knows I don't participate in that kind of language. The point is, when you bring this question up, you're really saying 'you're a racist, or are you a racist?' The answer is no, I'm not a racist. As a matter of fact, Rosa Parks is one of my heroes, Martin Luther King is a hero, because they practiced the libertarian principle of civil disobedience and nonviolence. Libertarians are incapable of being a racist because racism is a collectivist idea: you see people in groups. A civil libertarian as myself sees everyone as an important individual.    ”
     
— Ron Paul, CNN, Jan 10, 2008[140]

Reason republished Paul's 1996 defense of the newsletters,[141] and later reported evidence from "a half-dozen longtime libertarian activists" that Lew Rockwell had been the chief ghostwriter.[52] Although Rockwell denies this charge, and "has characterized discussion of the newsletters as 'hysterical smears aimed at political enemies.'"[142]

Paul had given his own account of the newsletters in March 2001, stating the documents were authored by ghostwriters, and that while he did not author the challenged passages, he bore "some moral responsibility" for their publication.[143]

He wrote them or approved them. Don't act like he didn't.

And

The Founding Fathers envisioned a robustly Christian yet religiously tolerant America, with churches serving as vital institutions that would eclipse the state in importance. — Ron Paul

Through perverse court decisions and years of cultural indoctrination, the elitist, secular Left has managed to convince many in our nation that religion must be driven from public view. The justification is always that someone, somewhere, might possibly be offended or feel uncomfortable living in the midst of a largely Christian society, so all must yield to the fragile sensibilities of the few. The ultimate goal of the anti-religious elites is to transform America into a completely secular nation, a nation that is legally and culturally biased against Christianity. — Ron Paul

He is not someone I want to put in the White House.

This is correct. I donated this morning, and before donating you have to agree that you're not donating on behalf of someone else.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Somebody's on a mission. I wonder what it is. What's really touching is you still hold on to the idea there's power in the White House. Ron Paul is the only one who won't mess with the laws and measures are passing, including Vermont's single payer system. For all the drama, you'd think you'd be offering some solutions.

How many blacks are in prison due to the drug war that Paul seeks to end? *crickets*

I'm going back to code.

He's still the only candidate who speaks the truth. Regardless of soundbytes taken out of context over the last 25 years.

Stop lying. He did not write them and he did not managed the Ron Paul newsletters. Lew Rockwell was the one managing his newsletters and some have accused Lew of writting some of those because of the writing style but nothing is confirmed. So please stop, what do you gain from lying about Ron Paul?

Im an atheist and I would be happy to have Ron Paul in the White House.
