Driving home from work, saw a pickup truck with the 4'x8' Ron Paul sign in the backSubmitted by tog2476 on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 00:28
It was parked on the main road in a restaurant parking lot right by the street, you know the huge signs the campaign had in 08, but this guy had 12 over the 08. He had an American flag and a Gadsen flag flying high above the sign and had it double sided like a billboard standing up in his truck. Of course I made a u-turn and pulled in. There was a girl in a wheelchair holding a Ron Paul sign with her mother sitting next to her, I think the girl had maybe some type of cerebral palsy and could not speak too well, but she sure was able to tell me she supports Ron Paul for president, she was definitely one of God's children. I met lots of cool people in the restaurant, and found out the owner is a Ron Paul supporter. I talked awhile with everyone, and man the cars passing were beeping and giving the thumbs up like crazy. First grass roots activism I have seen yet. I bought some Ron Paul business cards and am pitching in for yard signs with them and so it begins for me. When I get the signs it is time to hit the pavement and start posting them at highway exits, and of course the momentum will cause me to have to buy more. I am always active, but it seems this was the kick in the butt I needed to get more active. So, if this is our candidates last go around, let's go out with a bang if that is the way it goes, and kick ourselves in the ass, and do what we do best, grassroots ass kicking, sign posting, banner making, highway zip tying, Ron Paul supporters that we need to be. Have fun, let's roll.
