NEW Sign Idea...and it's perfect.

The media is determined to make the "Ron Paul supporter" a bunch of "exuberant young people".

When I saw the awesome folks waving signs in Jacksonville, an idea popped in my head. It's so easy, and would be VERY effective if all of us decided to do it EVERY time there was a TV opportunity.

Instead of the cluttered/wordy/hard to read homemade signs, we go simple:

RON PAUL (in bold letters)
*arrow pointing down towards the sign holder*
Age 31 (whatever age you are)

Think of the scene behind the Jacksonville CNN broadcast. Erin Burnett would've been talking about all those crazy kids out there....but on screen you'd see: RON PAUL age 42, RON PAUL age 26, RON PAUL age 57, RON PAUL age 18, RON PAUL age 64, etc.

Flooding the TV with information........since, you know, we can't expect them to do it for us.

My Dad is 80

Last night he was so excited because someone at the gas station (60) commented about his Ron Paul sticker, and then the gas station attendant (50) joined in, both of them positive about Ron Paul. One of them said, "Ron Paul is the only one making sense."

Incidentally, it took me the additional time between campaigns to get him and my step-mother on board. We may not see them at a sign wave, but they're out there with a bumper-sticker.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Different Sign Project

I posted a similar sign project idea here please check it out if you have the time. Let me know what you think.


don't even have to list "age"

excellent! for those a bit shy...

you can just write something else that indicates you are older eg

Grandpa for RP

My adult (or teenage) kids & I love Ron Paul

Voting RP bc I love my grandchildren

Class of '78 for Ron Paul

Republican voter 22 years - I support RP

I voted for Reagan; now I'm voting for Ron Paul

or any number of slogans to show it's not JUST youth

Desert Storm Vet for RP
WWII Vet for RP
Vietnam Vet for RP
Korean War Vet for RP

The point is to keep it

The point is to keep it SIMPLE and easy to SPOT on tv.

I think "Grandma for RP" is

I think "Grandma for RP" is pretty simple :)

People can write what they want, given what space they have.

Some may be adding to a Ron Paul sign - or some have more room if their entire sign is that slogan. The point is we have many options.

I like that idea! (Grandma for Ron Paul)

As far as having more room meaning you have to add more words...how bout just make the words you have, BIGGER? :)

Less clutter = easy to read on TV.

One more bit of info for the sign if it does not make it too


Something about party/voting pattern/who you voted for in 08.


Lifetime Rep
AGE 67

ONLY 2012
Age 59

Great Idea Lugnut.

I mean to rout you out!

-The door is wide open, anything can slither in

Less is more.

Remember, the point is to be easily read on TV. Less is more.

I like that!

Yes, I am 53, voting for PAUL, and so are MY kids; 28 and 26.
Would be funny IF the me-me-media would actually take NOTICE.

Why do they think we're all babes? Do they think we older voters (according to them) don't care about this country? That we Don't care about LIBERTY? Most of US have even more reason to care- our OWN kids' futures!

We had SOME proof, but RNC does not care about Rules n Laws- they just break and then change 'em to suit whomever (not PAUL).


Ladies can fib a little on their age...you can round down, if you want to.

The point is, you're not some crazy college kid(and if you are, that's great too). :)

Can I Lie about my Age??

LOL!! jes kiddin' ;-D!! That's a good idea I will broach the subject with my meet up group!

I'm 56 and agree me need to confront the MSM's misleading

classification that we are all young dumb kids.

i think this is a great idea,

i think this is a great idea, should be put into action.

RP is dangerous, so dangerous

Good idea

but people can see I'm an old lady
just by looking at me.

Yes but

Yes, but the point is that when the cameras pan across a group of supporters the signs are much more visible than the people, much less how old they are. So the impression might still be that the crowd is young even though some old people are there. By putting your age on your sign, you're making them focus on that and hopefully helping realize that reality is different from their impression.

there are

lots of ages in the pics. I guess we see who we want to see, lol. I see lots of white hair, greys, (colored) hair.


I get the concept

I was just kidding.Think Maxine

Me, too..but I also thought

Me, too..but I also thought about making old ladies actually advertise their age..I dunno..:)

Lets start a new group

Old ladies for Ron Paul!

I already belong to Grandmas for Ron Paul

a Facebook Group. Join us. There's strength in numbers.

Ron Paul 2012!

Age 48
Whoo Hoo!

In Liberty

Ron Paul 2012 - Age 58 Who said we were all young!

( : I think we should start putting our occupations too! That would carry even more weight! Like Joe the Plummer

I Support Ron Paul & I'm a Librarian & I'm 58!


I've got you beat...age 62!

and I've earned every wrinkle. ;)


lol and retired.

Still maybe a good idea since the media down plays the audience is diverse.


Great Idea

..And if the age ID can be a removable/change-friendly format, then the signs can be interchangeable amongst supporters.
