Remember, remember the 5th of November… So begins the poem about Guy Fawkes’ 1605 revolutionary aspirations, which was recently re-popularized in the dystopian “V for Vendetta”. A grass roots campaign, started in support of the “Ron Paul Revolution”, hopes to make this November 5th a memorable date in electoral history by setting the world’s single day fundraising record.

The idea, not associated with the official Paul campaign, has been making the Internet rounds and the viral appears contagious. While the goal of $10 million in one day – by way of 100,000 individual donations of $100 each – may seem impossible, a website tracking committed “November 5th” donations on the evening before was already promising close to $2 million, which would be impressive, if not quite revolutionary.
