Possibly dumb, possibly good idea?

Before I propose this idea, let me first explain that not only do I have no idea on the costs of orchestrating this, but I have no idea if it is even remotely feasible.

So if it is stupid, try and be kind haha.

Anyways: Instead of Ron Paul dumping money into blimps and other things (Although I kinda like the Blimp Idea) maybe a different approach would be possible?

What if Ron Paul sometime before each state's primary could orchestrate a 1 or 2 day event, that he could educate the voters on who he was.

It could be someone major in the state, with food, vendors, live LOCAL bands to get in touch with the people, and the most important events would be discussions done by Ron Paul, or maybe Rand Paul as well?

The discussions could 1) Be Ron Paul completely explaining his stance on everything, since the media will never allow him to do that, like 2-3 hour deal.

2) The second forum could be an explanation on Austrian Economics versus Keynesian Economics, and go into detail on the business cycle, and why savings and sound money are important.

And again for fillers, Live local bands, food, games, vendors, etc.

Furthermore (If this is feasible) Maybe Ron Paul could provide busing to other counties for free, and keep food prices as minimal as possible to offset costs.

AGAIN let me say that, if this were possible, it would obviously involved a lot of resources and people, so I don't know if it is not possible.

Thoughts? Am i dumb?

A Ron Paul Woodstock

.... I like that. But in Central Pa the weather would be against it for an outside event. I think in Pa most (except us diehard Paulians) will not get involved until after the November General; our Primary is April 24.

A Ron Paul Woodstock?

That's not a bad idea, it would take some real organization. I bet if it was promoted well in advance, have the right speakers, bands, food vendors etc. If it was done right, I bet alot of money could be raised, no one argues the fact Paul has the most activist supporters. We get a half million people or more at one place supporting Ron Paul, the free media coverage would be priceless.

I think it's a good idea.

I think it's a good idea.

According to the Huckster

we'd be a hit at Grateful Dead and Gun Shows....;)

No you're not "dumb"..

I like to think in these terms.
The most amount of people, for the least amount of money, in the quickest time possible.

To me that's:
Talk Radio, both local (in focused states), and national.
The internet for obvious reasons.
Phone canvassing
Guerrilla style. (buy 100 bumper stickers) and find a way to get them out there.
Securing signs with friends w/ businesses on busy streets, or making new friends w/businesses.
+ 50 other things

Then there's the feet on the street, which is hardest for a lot of people, but absolutely necessary. Door to door. Getting involved w/ GOP, and meetups. Precinct stuff.

I try to work smarter, not harder.

Should I put up the cost of hosting an event, and promoting it?
Can I set UP a booth at an event someone has already promoted, and having.

I can tell you from my brief past experience working in the music business here in Austin, is that doing an event is tough work to make successful. There is a lot to set up, and take down. There is a lot to promoting it. Budgeting etc. We have a pretty jaded crowd here though. It takes something pretty special to get them out of the house.

Austin is called "The live music capitol of the world" but it is tough to make it here as a musician, or smaller promoter.
It may be different where you are.

Not a bad idea at all, but

Not a bad idea at all, but very hard on Ron to go 50 places and talk for hours..maybe it could be set up by phone in 50 states at the same time with big screen TV's?

How would THAT grab everyone..? :D

People LOVE blimps! Especially Snookie Stupid Americans.

Your idea is intellectually sound, but in practical terms, dumb because American are too "snookie stupid" to appreciate anything more than "YES WE CAN!" stapled to a big bag of air.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Your right...

I cant argue that, I love blimps!
