Etch-A-Sketchy-PoliticianSubmitted by Bobsama on Thu, 03/22/2012 - 22:50
Right! So I proposed this to my local group but I'd like to cross-post it here. It's an idea on how to promote Ron Paul or at least tear down his opponents during sign waves. It's to expand the Romney campaign's etch-a-sketch gaffe to include Santorum and Gingrich.
We all know that campaign statements from these three fellows have been vastly different from their own past actions and past statements. They're all running to the right of where they were before. We may be able to exploit that by pointing out that they're really just politicians.
So, we can make etch-a-sketch facsimiles for sign waves. Red construction paper or party banners around the edges and two large circles for the knobs. On the inside, we can include statements they derived specifically for their 2012 campaigns--especially those they have zero history of doing. Off the top of my head, here are some ideas:
Audit the Fed
And just to make the intent clear, the bottom of the signs can read "Etch-A-Sketchy-Politician".
The entire point is to prompt people to rethink their candidate's statements and compare them to their actual histories. We can also make prints and leave them around. A great idea I saw was to put them at gas pumps and in various display cases and bulletin boards. Another idea would be to turn it into a fold-out card--folded such that the etch-a-sketch is the first image, next to it is their past statements, and next to that is Ron Paul's position.
