Would you take 50 cents and a Ron Paul brochure for my $18 tab?

This morning, I had to rent a sewer snake from the local rental company to clean a clogged kitchen sewer drain. The charge was $18 plus tax, for 3 hours. When I returned an hour later to return the snake, I asked the lady that owned the business if she would take 50 cents in silver coin and a home-printed Ron Paul brochure for my bill. Without hesitation, she enthusiastically said "SURE!" and I paid her with 2 well-worn silver quarters and gave her a Ron Paul brochure.

It was a great conversation starter and I explained that this is the kind of money Ron Paul believes we should use. I left her store sure she will give serious consideration to Ron Paul.

I had bought a "junk silver bag" off of eBay with the intent of repeating this little experiment anytime I could. I was very pleased with the outcome of my first trial with this experiment and I'm eager to repeat it again and again.

Does this sound like a good way to get more people thinking of Ron Paul?

I did the same thing with my printer!

I went to pay for our Ron Paul Meet Up's business cards. I had just come from our local coin shop, and had picked up 6 silver 1oz .999 rounds. I aksed my friend if he'd be willing to take a round as payment, which he accepted.

Give her a free Rx For LIberty Card too...

She'll love you even more when you save her on her prescription drugs (and the card promotes Ron Paul on the other side).

I'm sending out 15 free cards to anyone that wants them. Send me your name and address to care @ rxforliberty.com and I'll get them on their way stat.

Don't over spend at the pharmacy - give that money to Ron!

I think it is totally awesome

If I ever get in retail again, I am going to accept silver and gold as legal tender. Keep up the great work!!!!

Next, I want to trade 50 cents and a brochure for a $15 haircut.

Later today, I am getting a $15 haircut. I will take $18 ( with tip) in Federal Reserve Notes, 50 cents in sliver coin and a stack of home-printed Ron Paul brochures.

I want to see if I can get the owner of the shop to take my 50 cents and a stack of Ron Paul Brochures, instead of my $18 in Federal Reserve Notes.

Who's gonna bet that I'll get my haircut for 50 cents today?
