Updated! Quiltingsando's Liberty Symbol Now AvailableSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Thu, 10/08/2009 - 11:08
Quiltingsando's liberty symbol is now available, and she's been busy at her Zazzle store making stuff with it (be sure to click on View all Products at the bottom to see everything that is there.
For background on the symbol, see this thread on the DP. Quilting is donating the profits from any sales to our liberty candidates.
Executive summary of the meaning of the symbol, from quiltingsando's comment below:
The long horizonatal line represents the GRASSROOTS gathering under the LIBERTY TREE.
The Yellow background represents the energy of living in LIBERTY. The pointed limbs and roots are NEW GROWTH in LIBERTY and this new growth is TRUTH.
In my poem, KNOWLEDGE was the KEY to LIBERTY and that TRUTH HURTS. Standing under the Liberty Tree is not for wimps because sometimes we must bare painful truths that we may not want to hear and face imprisonment for informing others. There are dead limbs. Misleading information and lies will kill LIBERTY and so it goes.
It is OUR responsibility to keep the LIBERTY TREE alive through our efforts of informing and discussing information and ideas. Our efforts to strip away lies and propaganda that leads us AWAY from one another and kills discussion, ideas, voices and facts, THIS IS OUR CHALLENGE.
In Liberty, Peace & Prosperity.
Thanks to Mike Lawson for taking the original symbol and converting it into a vector graphic. I did a few minor tweaks and added the text at Quilting's request. The font used is Rosewood (fill). Quilting says anyone is free to use the symbol, as long as it is used to embody the Ron Paul message.
She continues, "I think Dr. Paul has the best message out there and I hope my efforts will be helpful. I have been trying to use both symbols and I figure let the people look and use them as they see helpful. Not sure if people will be receptive to the symbol but I must say this has been a very interesting and exciting experience for me. Working on the products has been fun for me and a break from all the bad news."
Click on the symbols to download hi-resolution .eps files of the symbol. Fonts have been converted to outlines. They're big files - about 3M each, and can be opened with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
Spread the message!
Thank you Quiltingsando.
