Driving home from work, saw a pickup truck with the 4'x8' Ron Paul sign in the back

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.

These signs, cards, slim jims

These signs, cards, slim jims and everything else are great and very much needed. BUT the most important function a Ron Paul supporter can do is to become a State Delegate.

No doubt about that.

We need to grow our membership in our MeetUp group's to make that happen.
And this helps call the new people in. You always get people to stop and talk Ron Paul and ask how to get involved.

You are welcome to join our Portage county RON PAUL 2012 MeetUp group TOG. I would like to have more dedicated "active" member's to work with and to make assistant organizer's. But like I say, we have a group in every county here in NE Ohio.
But we consider our Portage group HYPER-active.

Great Video !

We need to organize thousands of them all across the country.

My wife handed out four 2' X 4' yard signs in the Walmart parking lot yesterday, because she had displayed 2 in the back windows of her car, plus 3 Ron Paul bumper stickers..

This is easy, if you display Ron Paul signs, more supporters flock to you ! !

HHHmmmm, this just might be a good way to meet like minded people of the opposite gender.

beesting

Man I live in S.Florida and

I never ever see anything Ron Paul on any cars and such...so lame.This was good to hear!

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees...

Start or join a RON PAUL 2012 MeetUp group...

Get yourself some signs or make some.
Then make a MeetUp and have some fun campaigning for the champion of the constitution.

Excellent post! On Interstate 5 North near the 164th St Exit...

...in Washington State (several miles north of Seattle), there is a beautiful, large "Ron Paul 2012" sign just off the freeway.

Big as day and you can't miss it.

The Paulites are at it early!

I'm going to get some yard signs soon and put them all over the Seattle area.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

We do it like we do when we do it...

That was us TOG.
We had such a blast doing a sign wave in Boardman Ohio on route 224 in Mahoning county last week with such a great response from the passer-by's, that some of us here in the Portage county RON PAUL 2012 group decided to do it again. (video to come)
I also did a live on location call in to the Charlie Earl show on 1370 AM WSPD out of Toledo for about a five minute interview to maybe inspire more action of this sort from people on that side of the state of Ohio. Charlie is a great guy, and ran for Ohio Secretary Of State on the Libertarian ticket last year. We supported him heavily here in NE Ohio, though as expected he did not win the election.
We have gone to great length to make sure that we have a RON PAUL 2012 MeetUp group in every county here in NE Ohio. That is because all politics starts at the county level, and the pertinent information is available thru the county BOE. Some of the groups are starting to hyper-activate at this time, and events like the sign wave motivate the membership.
Ron Paul's strong showing in Iowa was a huge motivational factor as well.
You are welcome to pop in to our meetings when you see us there. We will be starting to meet there every week soon again. And we will be doing a sign wave for those who come early every week. It is a great location for just such things. Our regular weekly meeting's have been moved to Kent for now to establish a core group that will be heading up recruitment at KSU this fall. So in fact, we will be holding two meetings every week in Portage county soon. Once a month doesn't accomplish much of anything. We have been meeting every week for the last four years, and attending events with ETF literature and such to educate-educate-educate the people.
We had a lot of people just pull in and ask how they can get involved. What gets me this time around is the amount of lawyers out there that are supporting Ron Paul and want to get involved. Very interesting.
Thanks for pulling in and sticking around a while to chat. And we will keep in touch as to when the sign order goes out, and the sign's come in.
For the record...here is the video from last week.

I saw THREE cars last weekend

I saw THREE cars last weekend with Ron Paul bumper stickers and one of the cars had a massive Ron Paul 2008 sign stuck on to the rear window of the car that had the number "12" over the "08".

He's catching on, I'm telling ya!

Good !

What state are you in tog?

beesting

can I ask which state?

thank you for your story!

I got some shout outs in San Fran walking with a small Ron Paul coming back from a "Stop Bombing Libya" protest in July. It was great!

We are in Ohio. NE section of the state...

We are going to do one of these a week at the Streetsboro location. And probably one other location every week as well.

We were in Boardman last week in another county.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0px1BagGFpU
We take the truck and signs wherever we get a request from any of the NE Ohio RON PAUL 2012 county groups. One in every county.
Git-er-done!

Hi drheyde

I crawled out from under my abalone shell in the Mendocino redwoods and drove 4 hours to Pacific Campus last Friday, and then 4 hours back, and I was the only RP stickered car I saw. I did not get any "thumbs up", but I did get ALLOT of room/respect driving around SF, which was totally cool. In addition to the RP stickers I have peace signs and America flags. I hope that when I return to SF I will see more RP stickers so I can give folks Thumbs UP!

Hey..

Buy some and take them with you to pass out.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

Thanks for sharing!

Bump!

Cheers,

TimB

Thanks for the bump.

I hope this motivates other's to get active.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

Yeah!

Great post.

Yup-yup!

And BUMP.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

TOG was right on it.

This isn't all that hard of a thing to do.
Make a MeetUp and get the sign's out.
Bring a lawn chair and you're fighting for liberty.
