Spread out!Submitted by quizbe on Sat, 03/24/2012 - 01:05
At a local rally, it felt like the group was being disrespectful and obnoxiously loud inside of a building, so I promoted the doctor outside. I ended up talking to 3 people at length and informed them of Dr. Paul as well as additional random supporters passing by.
In my opinion, large groups are intimidating and wild to those not involved. They may grab attention initially for a few moments to those that are passing by, but will likely be forgotten once they are out of sight. I feel it would be much more inviting if we were to spread out instead of attaching to each other. It's much harder to disregard passionate individuals than an annoying mob. Are you more likely to give money to a group of bums, or one by himself?
Instead of 50 Ron Paul supporters on a single overpass(I've been part of one of these), there should be a few people on every overpass for miles! Or can you imagine a Ron Paul supporter on each corner of downtown San Francisco during a work day? For 12 blocks? Sooner or later EVERYONE will be curious and many are going to be asking questions. Keep in mind these people are going into offices with coworkers. The supporters would not be disruptive in any way, but inviting and courteous.
Instead of people thinking "Oh the Ron Paul people are over there." they would think "The Ron Paul people are everywhere!" (they are)
I posted this before and it wasn't responded to. Let me know if you agree or not, I won't push this anymore if not. Thanks!
