More fun plastering signs all over San Diego for Dr. Paul!Submitted by vincebodie on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 02:44
Let's see... I can stay up late on the DP, or catch up on some sewing, or do those dishes - they can wait til morning, or go read a book and fall asleep, or... oh what the heck - Dr. Paul is coming to town in two days, I guess I can go put up some more signs!
Today I made up some signs to post around San Diego for Dr. Paul's UCSD event. They're simple and easy to read for people passing by in cars, nothing fancy. I created a letter size one and a legal size one:
I printed off about 30 of the legal size and headed out for my daily errands. Before leaving home I uploaded them to the local meetup group site as well. When I got home an hour or so later I had a couple emails thanking me for posting them.
So tonight I'm out with a tape gun, stack of signs, and a camera in a junior college area. I'm posting one on a lamp post at a busy intersection and a young dude walks up to the intersection and out of the blue asks me what I like about Dr. Paul. We ended up having an awesome conversation about all kinds of things, from libertarianism to education and the economy, and at some point I had to say "Man, I'm sorry, I gotta go. I promised myself I'd get all these up tonight!"
Before we parted I told him to check out The Ultimate History Lesson with John Taylor Gatto (he said he's a history major). I didn't bring up the Daily Paul because he honestly seemed very left leaning (not that we're "right wingers", but that's the general impression foisted on us by many of our enemies and detractors), and I thought a Gatto lesson in true history would be a better starting off point for him. I wouldn't be surprised to see him again night after tomorrow though.
So as I continue on toward the college one of my signs catches my eye, stapled to a telephone pole. But wait a minute... I hadn't put one on a wooden pole since this afternoon... and that was in North Park... and this one was letter size... COOL!
