Would you take 50 cents and a Ron Paul brochure for my $18 tab?Submitted by flybeech on Sat, 11/19/2011 - 13:22
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?
