Sign Bomb a Success! Here is What's Next!

Our first nationwide Sign Bomb on October 10th, 2011 was a success!!!

We've energized our base and shown people Ron Paul CAN WIN!

Around the country we got hoots, hollering, and honks as we had over 600 groups set an unofficial sign waving World Record! There is growing recognition Ron Paul is a serious contender. Any doubts people have about Ron Paul's ability to win should be evaporating!

Our Sign Bomb Video went from 0 to over 2,000 views in just over 24 hours!

Here is some local press we received:

(thanks PTDM)

So what's next?

Proposal:

RonPaulSignBomb.com has shown us the way:

The next nationwide Signbomb is Saturday, November 5th (remember, remember the 5th of November) 11:00 - 1:00 local time.

This time it's up to us to organize locally, using hubs like ronpaul.meetup.com

And we shouldn't stop there!!!

Just as we have Moneybombs approximately monthly, we should have Signbombs! This is how we differentiate ourselves from other candidates.

How many Mitt Romney Sign Bombs will there be? How about Cain? You could probably count them on one hand if not zero!

That's because supporters for all candidates except Ron Paul are lukewarm at best. And you can't BUY our enthusiasm!

We're doing great with Moneybombs. Ron Paul has been able to take his campaign to mainstream level, with professional organization, advertising, and traveling. But this may not be enough. We raised more funds than many candidates in '07 including John McCain early on, and we didn't win. Money can only take you so far. We need to take the message direct to the people.

We need to step up our ground game at the grassroots level! We all know this is our last chance to get Ron Paul elected president. We need to throw everything at this election we've got. We need more not less. We need to canvas. We need to talk to neighbors, co-workers, and relatives. We need delegates, and we need more Signbombs!

I propose a Signbomb on the Saturday immediately after every scheduled Moneybomb, from 11:00 - 1:00 local time. The only exception is the one November 5th. Every month these should get larger, with some the biggest happening just as we get into the primaries/caucuses January through March 2012. View our current Sign Bomb county standings.

Most voters begin paying attention late, but things are beginning to heat up! We're at around 10% in national polls. Let's keep our momentum growing!!!

Remember, remember

the sign-bomb in November

Enhance your signbomb

I took a box of pennies. I gave out rolls of pennies to pedestrians with Ron Paul cards, and even unrolled some and sprinkled them on the ground. http://www.ronpaulrealchange.com/ It's something flashy that can really drive the point home.

Would you believe that a couple of people didn't want the 50 cent rolls of pennies and took the cards instead. That's a powerful statement on the value of our currency.

sign waves

love the organized calendar of bombs..great idea..here in Wa. state we're going to get out and get the word out as often as we can! In Liberty! Oh yeah we were on 2 overpasses in Lacey Wa. great responses!

roseinnw

We had major literature bomb on campus

We have a site SeeRonPaul.com and another site HearRonPaul.com
Check it out.
We put out contact literature for the site, Ron Paul hats, signs, bumper stickers, to about 1,000 people, mostly students.

Sign bomb for black this out

Why wait so long? Why not do a sign bomb this weekend for the Black This Out moneybomb? It's supposed to be nice weather in the northeast at least. What's an hour or two outside supporting liberty, prosperity, and peace?

I'm thinking

we keep official Signbombs on the schedule above to make them large as possible.

The idea is grouping everybody together for magnified impact, just like moneybombs. That way we pick up media coverage too, as they begin to expect them and the visual affect is better.

People/groups can wave signs independently as much as they like too of course!

Thanks :)

Thanks :)

Rochester New York

Our sign bomb on Hylan Drive in Henrietta went off as planned with about 10 of us out there waving signs. We had many positive waves, honks and shouts. People are waking up and realizing who Ron Paul is.

We need to organize these for once a month in strategic places around this area. I am sure everyone in other places has this in mind.

We should also try to get literature handed out to those who are willing to take it.

Keep up the good work everyone!
WE CAN WIN!!!

I haven't recently been doing sign waves

or placing signs but our group in Houston, Texas has been doing sign waves on the bridges crossing over US Highway 59 just outside of downtown Houston every Friday afternoon now for years. Trying to catch the 5 o'clock drive time traffic.
Actually 59 turns into a parking lot Fridays after 5 pm.
So yes I agree this needs to be done at least weekly and doing it on Fridays give the viewers below something to think about and research over the weekend. VERY EFFECTIVE !!

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

11/5 Sign Bomb Logo?

Has anyone seen a logo that can be used for 11/5? Would be a great item to duplicate from 10/10 for Facebook pages, etc. I'm not an artist, nor do I play one on TV, so would love to have one from one of you talented artist folks! Thanks in advance.

I saw a good group in Tacoma,

I saw a good group in Tacoma, WA on the bridge over I-5 near the Tacoma Mall. Great job guys!

Free Homemade RP Yard/Pole Signs (SET of 7)

plenty of SETS remain for DPers. Want some?
http://www.dailypaul.com/181660/signs-for-dp-members

Eight SETS given to DPers so far. Plenty of sets remain. What 'ya waitin fer? Ask up!

I don't know why these fundraisers have to be so set

in advance like they are. I offer no comment on how clever or creative they are. What I do suggest is a sign waving once a week, not so distantly as they are scheduled.

For some reason, we're expected to know every law that exists in America & in our state so we don't break it. We're supposed to know this when we're 18. There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E.

The Moneybombs

need to be scheduled so people know about them and can save/plan accordingly. Every time we have something it never fails that somebody says "I didn't hear about this!"

No need for them to be secret/surprises.

I did a search on DP for moneybomb schedule and took the dates from this thread:

http://www.dailypaul.com/171556/money-bomb-schedule

was thrilled when i was goin

was thrilled when i was goin to work on the NJ PARKWAY NORTH, right after driscoll? bridge, and saw 2 ron paul signs across an overpass...i honked !!!!!!! lol
\
i have four bumper stickers on my car and ive had people stick out their head and yell ron paul 2 me...simple things get his name in peoples minds

Yep...

agreed.

Somewhere there are men planning the next destructive and evil ploy to make this world their own... The common man is not part of that plan as we would see fit... Merely pawns to be used against one another.
