Copied from the comments I just posted to the kickstarter comment board. At the end of day 5: 1430 Backers 83.3% Funded Breakdown Daily Averages: 286 Backers $41,655.60 Pledged 16.7% Funded $145.65 Pledge per Backer. If this trend continues, your project will be fully funded in one more day. Meaning that your project will have been fully funded in less than a week. It looks like the Objectivist Base is speaking to the project's detractors in the same words Roarke used for Toohey. Congrats, Scott and ASP3 Marketing Team!

    Update -- the kickstart is now at 89% with 23 days to go.

    The little story behind this update is as follows.
    I had an email from Scott DeSapio reminding me about the kickstart campaign. I reminded him that the rewards only applied to Canada and the US so I was excluded.
    The quick reply back was, 'actually, all of the rewards are available outside of the US and Canada. That was a misstatement on the site.'
    So I had to put my money where my mouth was...
    Done. I can now inform anyone else outside Canada and the US wanting to contribute, all is clear to jump in.

    Sarah Palin can see the pendulum of justice from her house! Now more than ever, we need it to start swinging back to Freedom! This movie is a part of that movement. Take it from a Met fan, you gotta believe! Very encouraging news.

      >>>Take it from a Met fan . . .

      You had "LOSER" written all over you.

        @Darren, I'd like to encourage you, as strongly as I possibly can, please continue to post your abusive, derisive, misinformed, and ultimately irrelevant comments.

        The more you post, the faster your account is downvoted into oblivion.

        Come on, man.
        I know you have more pieces of witty and pithy invective stored up that you just can't wait to let loose.
        Why wait?
        We're right here.

      Yep. It's real smart for people in economically uncertain times to pledge their money to movie producers who've already admitted they don't need it to make their movie, but who will, of course, gladly take the money and put it in their pockets.

      In return for their vanity-pledge, the donors get an electronic copy of the "final" script (which may or may not be the actual script the director, the producers, the editor, and the philosophical compliance officer (David Kelley) create); and for 500-times that donation, a donor can get the script AND the honor of having his name carved into the side of John Galt's house (a shot of which may or may not appear in the final film, or which may or may not even be taken).

      Talk about a vanity project! The people who donate to this Kickstarter are also the only ones who will buy tickets and DVDs when the movie is released.
