Is It Too Early for Ron Paul campaign signs?Submitted by fightapathy on Thu, 04/28/2011 - 10:46
Honest question with two angles: Dr. Paul only formed an exploratory committee for the sake of the S.C. debate; clearly, he will make his announcement AFTER he reviews reactions from the debate. If 80% of the questions are fielded to Mitt and Chump (and 15% to Pawlenty), then he may decide the fix is already in and not declare.
That being in mind, is it too early to pull out the signs? I have already altered my stash of 2008 signs to read
RON PAUL PRESIDENT 2012!
I'd hate to have to withdraw them after two weeks.
The other consideration is my RTC. They're mostly older folks who're likely to be blind and vote for Mitt. That being the case, I've been thinking how to stack the odds in Dr. Paul's favour since relatively few younger folks have joined me at the RTC, and the two recent additions are highly militarized McCainiacs who'll pull the pin for Mitt.
Oy. So what's the strategy? Say, "damn the Mitts and McCains, full speed ahead" on promoting Dr. Paul? Or lie low, increase the probing for allies, and keep the signs indoors until the official campaign comes out after a presumably good reaction to the debate?
