Connor Boyack = Mormon = cboyack@gmail.com

I think it's a setup, a SUCKER'S RUSE to drain funds from the pockets of the membership of this website and why the admins have not deleted this I cannot figure out.

This is NOT supportive of Ron Paul, it is a technical fail ... I don't see anything on their website that points to anything about Ron Paul ... AT ALL.

If you donate to this, what happens when that website explodes into a Romney supporting website?

Why risk this. Are there any other good billboard projects out there to put your money into that are OBVIOUSLY supportive of Ron Paul and the 26 million spent on the national website and media ...

And DO NOT Tell me I have collected a single penny for ANY of my billboards as I have not.

Let the strawman attack begin!

Mormons are a tough sell for Ron Paul

I am a Mormon and I live in Utah. I am also a veteran and I am from Arizona. While I really like living here, it is hard for me to see so many Mormons think Romney is it just because he is also a Mormon. Despite his membership in the church, in my opinion, Romney falls extremely short of exemplifying what we believe in. Politically, people here are more asleep than in other places. Our founder, Joseph Smith, revealed that the Constitution is a divine document and admonished us to defend and uphold it. It is a sacred duty.

With public opinion so staunchly for Romney, (He got 90% of the popular vote here in 2008) it is difficult to break the Mitt trance and talking about Paul shuts down open conversation pretty fast.

This billboard is the effort of one of our most valiant and effective Utah Ron Paul supporters and it will wake people up!

Trust no Future, howe're pleasant, Let the dead Past bury its dead,
Act, --act in the living Present, Heart within, and God o'erhead !

Problems with your statements

Regardless if the bombIran site mentions ron paul is not the point, the point is the sign was created to make more people aware of the situation. Every thing on that site points to ron paul, It may not mention his name but it does mention his beliefs all over the site. End the senseless bickering and lets get more of these sings up in this country. The sign is not perfect but it will pull interest from both warmongers and antiwar people. I think its a great Idea! It will get people talking.

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice

Mr. RonPaulbillboards

Mr. RonPaulBillboards, you couldn't be further off in left field than your characterization of Connor Boyack. = Mormon? wtf are you talking about? You have fallen off the wagon. Do a quick google search and you'll see that few have done more for the cause for Ron Paul than Connor Boyack...including publishing a book. We appreciate all your "input", but you can now go back to your design studio and self congratulate.

Connor Boyack is a hero!

He is LDS and he is an amazing defender of liberty. His book, "Latter-day Liberty" is outstanding and has a great endorsement from Ron Paul. He is active in Campaign for Liberty, heads up the 10th Amendment group for Utah and is often on local radio defending the Constitution.

I can understand your point of view that people should donate to your billboard program instead, and go ahead and argue that point. But getting personal and irrational doesn't help your argument.

Fallen off the wagon ...

I haven't had a drink in over 20 years. For you to shower unsubstantiated and AD HOMINEM attack on the greatest joy in my life, my sobriety is a cheap, cheap shot.

As I said, let the straw man attacks begin.

Don't address the obvious TECHICAL failings of the billboard, just throw your money into that Chip-In and errrr ... support Ron Paul.

For you to take a poke at my leadership and hard work in Alcoholics Anonymous is CHILDISH and weak.

Seriously??

20 years and you still act like this? I applaud you on not taking that drink, but your mind-think is still in the toilet.

Get yer brain dried out and then we can probably have a decent conversation with you.

The average goober will look at that and think...

"WOOO HO, LET'S BOMB IRAN!"

I think the small print will get lost on some people. Too bad. I think the design doesn't really get the message across effectively enough.

I like the billboard

I think it accomplishes what it has set out to do, which is cause a stir in order to drive people to the website. No matter what your opinion is of Iran, the billboard is eye catching, and presents a very simple URL that is easy to remember. If people go to the website, they get a more fleshed-out, but still concise, message.

Doesn't seem like a bad thing to me...

I just e-mailed them...

A thank you for their efforts and told them I saw a photo of the billboard on Daily Paul. Let's reach out, folks, to everyone who shares our pro-peace message. Just a thought...

Super sophisticated, intelligent, highly educated billboards

$40K of RP's grass roots money is what you want?

"Super sophisticated, intelligent, highly educated billboards FAIL" Are you joking? Our country is not going to survive by being perpetually driven into ignorance; not everything is user friendly. That sign may not immediately make sense to everyone who sees it, but it was thought provoking to me, someone not "highly educated."

On facebook you wrote, "May I now have 40,000 dollars of Ron Paul grassroots money to put these all over the United States of America..." Why stop at 40K? Why not ask for a million? Why not really simplify it for the masses: Ron Paul Is Cool 2012.

Why shouldn't I have ...

ALL THE MONEY, 26 MILLION, tell me that huh? Why shouldn't I ?

You're trying to prove a

You're trying to prove a negative. It's not my job or responsibility to help you with that. You need to validate your original argument; in other words, prove your point and stop with your bullschit. You're not going to get $40K from me, that's for sure. You claim to be in Louisiana. What a disgrace. Campaign for RP in Antarctica and set up some signs there for the penguins to read.

A much more effective design for your purposes:

Here's a free design that is 1,000's times more effective for your purposes.

Please, any technical critique is welcome, and I'll need FORTY THOUSAND dollars of Ron Paul grassroots campaign donations to post this "all over ..."

I took your advice and read through the thread

until I came to the above comment, which evidently riled some DPrs.
First, thank you for your points on billboard graphics. I hope future billboard artists will see and use your expert advice. I had similar qualms about the billboard you critiqued, but I also appreciate the effort the activists contributed, even the slight humor of the crossed out words.

Second, in the freedom movement we diverse individuals represent a wide range of styles, thank goodness. Some may prefer the very stark design you present, it is more readable at a distance. Others will prefer the slightly softer though still jarring billboard of the OP.

And some probably think both stray over the line of harsh reality confronting a populace that has preferred to hide from the truth.

Again, thank you for your good advice. In the future I think you'll receive a more positive response if you learn to slightly soften your own approach. We are all passionate here, and it behooves each of us to make sure our messages are positive and supportive and constructively critical, with due appreciation for differing approaches, especially since so many of the grassroots are amateur volunteers on a steep learning curve.

Video interview Jim Rogers endorsement of Paul's views.

http://www.reuters.com/video/2012/02/23/jim-rogers-us-presid...

Video interview with legendary financial trader Jim Rogers,
Rogers is asked about the leading candidates for president and Ron Paul's name is left out!
But Rogers is a savvy interviewee, and he's on record plenty of times about his support for libertarian Congressman Ron Paul. Almost immediately he mentions the candidate's name and restates a kind of endorsement of Paul's views.
