I want to share this good news...

I am currently working in TN. In my job I drive quite a bit and interact with about 6 clients per day...I work 7 days-a-week. In the past 2 months I've been at this, I have had multiple comments and coversations about my RP bumper sticker! It's been a terrific ice-breaker toward educating people about what the REAL message is, not what FAUX news has been telling them. In the 250-or-so people I've conversed with in the past 60 days, only ONE wasn't an enthusiastic Paul supporter by the time we finished our discussion!!! Just tonight upon returning to my motel from a day out in the field, two young guys in the motel parking lot saw my sticker and started talking with me...the one fella explained that he discovered Ron Paul just last week, and spent 4 straight hours on YouTube watching videos...particularly the ones that were negative toward Ron in the title...and his conclusion was that there were NO negative videos!! That the ones trying to bash Ron contradicted themselves so badly that he drew his own conclusion that there just is NO DIRT on Ron anywhere...and he's found politics for the first time and is a huge fan in just one week!!!

I explained to him that Ron's support nationwide is much, much stronger than he has been lead to believe, and that Tampa will turn out different than the TV is telling the public. I finished our talk with this: There's no such thing as an ex-Ron Paul supporter! To which he replied: RIGHT ON!!!

That is exciting!

Hey man that is awesome. I am in Kentucky and I had my first venture into really starting a discussion with people today (outside of my family members). It was a big success.

My daughter takes a Russian language class and I went to the room where the parents hang out. There was one parent that I wanted to give a Ron Paul brochure because I thought he would be an easy sell. I have a bunch of the best Paul videos on my laptop that I ripped off Youtube.

I started to show him then other people started coming over. They didn't know much about Paul but basically had the impression (probably fromt he boob tube) that he couldn't win.

Anyway, they left very excited about Paul. And, the couple of videos I showed really had the effect I was going for: Ron Paul 0 to 60 mph!

My idea is to put the videos on the ipad and see if I can get 20 minutes of time and put the info in front of them. A lot of people in my town would have probably been Santorum people. So, I want to get in front of the church folks and get them pumped about a truly principled man

That's a terrific teaching tool!!

We all learn in a different manner...some folks learn by reading, some by listening...most by visual. Your meathod of the short video is gonna have the best batting average of any of us!! The trick would be to get your "student" in an atmosphere of willingness and of learning...a nice quiet waiting room at the quick lube place...something like that, without distractions.
To get back to the bumper sticker idea per Ira Freeman and the nomadic Monkey below...THAT'S THE ANSWER!!! This is right out of Goerble's playbook!! Just like what the MSM is doing, repeat - repeat - repeat!! We've got to get Ron's name in front of as many eyes across America as possible...today, so many folks believe the crap that he's dropped out, or they've never heard of him before. If they see his name at each and every stop light they get to, the repetition will burn into their tiny, under-used brains! They'll get to the voting booth and color-in the RIGHT bubble!!! Let's light this fire, baby!!!

Hi bcfast. Thanks. Good point about finding the right environment. I think that is key.

One lead in I am planning with people in my sphere of influence is: "Hey, I am working on a presentation and I'd like to practice it on you if I could have 20 minutes of your time". One hook I have is to show how Bernanke was saying the economy was strong right up through 2007 contrasted to Peter Schiff and Dr. Paul warning and warning and warning. Then, go into all other important points from there. The Romney flip flop video should make them feel dirty to even consider him :)

I'm going to mix it up as much as possible. I have a shirt, slim jim flyers from his site, and I am going to find a good bumper sticker.

I'm ready to pass flyers out, but I'll have that ipad on hand if I can see someone is willing to dig in then and there.

I want to get into some delegate action here in some form or fashion too

Wore my RP shirt at work yesterday

I work in sales and the first guy that came in our lot yesterday saw my shirt and said "HELL YEAH! RON PAUL! I'm buying here...I don't care if you are more expensive than all your competitors" He had gotten out of his car and was smoking a cigarette...he said "is this a smoker friendly place?" I said you can't smoke inside but what this place is full of is Freedom and Liberty!

I have to admit it's getting to be really fun watching people wake up and and starting to use their Liberty how they want to instead of how we have been TOLD too!

Go Ron Paul - PEACE!
(hat tip to Matt)

Buy glass chalk;)

My truck window says dailypaul.com and also a Ron Paul 2012 sign in the window as well.Glass chalk is the ANSWER it's cheap and everyone can get a hold of it.

Ron Paul 2012

Nice!

I get the same responses. Literally the only people that have told me they don't like Ron Paul are the neo-cons in the GOP. And they are becoming a rarity.

Me too!

I am a landscape designer and this week I happened to actually be installing a planting design. I wore my old '08 Ron Paul shirt. yesterday, I had two older people walking down the street at different times tell me they liked my shirt and that Ron Paul had their vote. This was very uplifting to hear! Especially for me as I walk precincts and do face rejection a lot too!

Here's one more inspiration:

I visited a cliet who is a retired attourney. He noticed my sticker and commented, "I see your Ron Paul sign...you must be an isolationist". I then spent the next 15 minutes explaining what we all know here...quoting the appropriate Ammendments and what they mean (each time interjecting that, as a lawyer, I'm SURE he remembers that part...)and in the end, he said, "Perhaps I'm wrong about this...I'm very impressed with your knowledge and I promise to study-up on Ron Paul. Everything you said makes perfect sense to me..." The lawyer had no idea that Ron was a veteran...the ONLY veteran running; that impressed him! This man is quite influential in his area and has a large extended family. The truth is spreading, folks...keep at it!!
I just wonder: With all the positive feedback I get on my sticker, how did Ron lose TN in the first beauty contest? Because the vote counting is a crock?

Thank you!

Thanks for what you are doing... it's totally correct.

Thanks to the poison in the MSM (claiming RP wants open borders, eradicate SS etc) people have no idea who he is or what he stands for.

They don't know he's a veteran, a doctor and a true conservative.

It's a war of information for sure.

Thanks for the encouragement. As I become more aware of his policies and more comfortable debating, I become more confident. If what you say is the truth than no one can counter it without lying.

I too

I too have two Ron Paul Bumper Stickers on my car which initiates lots of car honks and thumbs up responses.

I think it would be extremely beneficial to the campaign if a bumper sticker was handed out to each and every attendee at every event where Ron Paul speaks!!! I'm beginning to see quite a few Obama 2012 stickers on the interstates as I travel to and from work and it's disgusting!

Let's start flooding the highways with Ron Paul stickers on cars, trailers, campers, trucks, SUV's and Semi's!

Brilliant!

That sounds almost...

exactly like the way I came to join the r3volution. All it took was one 15 minute speech on XM Radio's P.O.T.U.S station on the way to work in 2007. After that, I've probably generated several million clicks on youtube, drained the wallet, shed blood and tears and worked hours on end as probably almost all of you have. They can ignore one Ron Paul, but they can't ignore millions of Ron Pauls. Become Ron Paul. That's how change happens. Not by electing a leader, but by all of us being leaders. The world has no idea what Ron Paul has started.

By the way...

Wish me luck tomorrow. I'm on a slate with 3 national delegates tomorrow in Missouri's 5th district.

We won...

I'm going to Tampa!!!

Best of luck, my friend!

I know you will make our state proud.

BTW, Aaron..

I want to thank you for all that you did in the 5th CD. I'm one of the people you called, and informed about the caucus, and more. I know you worked your ass off, and I really appreciate it! Good luck tomorrow - bring us home the win once more!
Your FB bud, Josh :)

Thank you!

I appreciate your kind words. We are all in this together.

Oh, yes...

it is highly contageous. The only cure seems to be repeated MSM brainwashing.

I just went to Walmart and carried in my giant RON PAUL sign.

Was checking out and the cashier asked about Ron Paul. She's going to look him up. She had not heard of him.....
