I Am Shouting For Help! Fellow Dp'rs

People, My business location in the heart of Myrtle Beach is literally at the epicenter of Memorial Day WEEK (not Weekend) Black Biker Rally.

You probably have no idea how big this is. Literally hundreds of thousands of Black Bikers and Pimped out cars etc descend on MB for 6 straight days...and a half million others who rent mopeds etc.

Pimped out and wrapped Caprice's etc. It's epic huge!

A video example
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuOnAve589A

My laptop has crashed and I don't own a boombox. Just the desktop at home now.

I truly have an epic location across from the Beach House and we have an unprecedented opportunity to reach out to disenfranchised (I hate saying this} Black Voters.

I do not have a racist bone in my body. I don't like saying things like Black People, White People, Hispanic People. I simply do not see 'people' that way.

If someone near by has a laptop w speakers to lend, I want to play Ron Paul songs/videos(SLY, TMOT Aimee Allen, Golden State and all those other awesome vids, such as the fellow who Dr Paul delivered his baby at no charge.

I have a captive audience on the patio on Ocean Blvd and can really turn this in to something epic!

Not sure if you are hearing what I'm saying.

So let me state it plainly. I have a HUGE OPPORTUNITY to get the message out! I am asking for help doing this.

They come enmasse from 10 surrounding States, the entire South East.

Come hang and watch this for yourself with me! I need speakers, a laptop and general support for RonPaul

70+ percent of my customers so far have darker skin than I, if that tells you anything.

Please help me bring people together and really take this R3volution to the next level.

I AM ASKING FOR HELP!

Some good news

One of my customers tonight on the patio is an active duty NCO in MD (won't say where and which branch) and this guy can pull strings.

I introduced him to the homeless Vet I hired and let him share his story.

The guy was pissed! (Oh, and he's a Ron Paul supporter btw!)

They exchanged info and he'll be following up when he's done vacationing here, cuz the VA screwing my guy over did not sit well with him.

I also had another family of customers originally from India, vacationing from DC today. Very nice people, Dad's an IT Tech guy and after serving them and finding out they're from DC, we talked a little about Gov and at the right time I told them I'm a Ron Paul guy.

In concert, all four of them said "We love Ron Paul!"
I handed them a Super Brochure and told them about Dr Paul's recent success with delegates and they had no idea. (Neither did Military guy above)

All these people I mentioned above are here all week and will be back daily for my epic Sorbet and Dr Paul dose.

Also, you know how all the hotels have the local brochure stands for all the things to do, coupons etc? Well, there was an empty slot in one, so I conveniently filled it with Super Brochures.

BOOM!

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

What is that below supposed to tell us?

"70+ percent of my customers so far have darker skin than I, if that tells you anything."

Anyway.. I have an idea for you and whoever is going to or is planning on traveling there to "work" the crowd..

Setup one of these devices to sell items or just to take donations on the spot. You'll get some good responses from people I'm sure at shows like that but many people probably support his ideas yet haven't given money for one reason or another.

It's actually very rare to find people who do donate to any campaign relatively speaking.. so seize the POS opportunity while you're face to face.

Here's the device.

Take credit cards or cash on the spot ans send them an email receipt!

re" What is that below supposed to tell us?

"70+ percent of my customers so far have darker skin than I, if that tells you anything."

It's supposed to tell us that this part of my customer base can be exposed to the message and the R3volution, quite possibly for the first time.

It's supposed to tell us that some/many likely voted for the first time in 2008 for various reasons that I cannot pretend to know.

It's supposed to tell us that there is access and opportunity to spread the message that would not otherwise exist.

It's supposed to tell you that I embrace my customers through excellent service, a superior/unique new product they have never seen before and seem to delight in.

In my experience, when someone experiences something new and exciting to them, it also makes them want to talk/engage and this is where the DR Paul aspect comes into play because it is instant trust earned.

When I tell people "Just have a taste and it will blow your mind" and it actually does, they want to talk!

In fact, yesterday, I had such an experience with a gentleman who owns the concessions at Florence FleaMarket. He's going to start buying from me to sell there, because he wants something new, exciting and different to offer his 10-12K weekly customers.

He is a Black man who's skin color means nothing to me. What is important to me though, is, as we develop a relationship, I'll bring up Dr Paul when I feel it's the right time, and if I'm successful, he'll start talking about the message to all his customers as he sees fit 100 miles away on a daily basis.

So that's what it's supposed to tell us, since you asked

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

So we were supposed to get all of that from

the difference of the color of their skin. For someone who doesn't see color, you sure seem to go on about it.

Maybe next time just say "Black Man" and don't feel so nervous about it that you have to go overboard with explaining how you aren't racists and I'd try and figure out a different way of telling people why a crowd that's made up of 70% darker skinned people than yourself is somehow significant.

Just pointing out what I see. Maybe you just said some of that stuff wrong.

BTW: My question was rhetorical.

Let me expand and put it in a different light

I'm finding that (This week only, I hope) that the crowd here this week is mixed, but vast majority are Harley Riders from the South. The minority crowd is from all walks of life, from all over the Eastern half of the country.

The Harley Riders are Budweiser and Burgers and NOTHING else! Most of them are not even approachable to try something new. But they are polite.

The rest of the crowd is not only polite and approachable, but they seem to love the opportunity to try something new and different. They like to hang out and talk. They ask questions, they are easy going, they brought their kids and friends and family and these are the ones who are buying my product and coming back for more.

These are personal observations I have experienced and witnessed. Nothing more, nothing less.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

It's a good idea and thanks....but

I want/need to remain reasonably low key.

Only when I think it's appropriate, and after I've gotten to know the customers a little bit and feel it's okay to engage in Ron Paul discussions, do I.

Remember these people are on vacation and want to relax.

If they see my RP bumper sticker and start the conversation, I'm all in right away, hoping others are listening.

I'm well traveled so I ask where they are from. Then I share experiences of my own from their area, keeping it light. If they're from a recent Ron Paul won State, I thank them for our success there (almost none know)

If I feel comfortable that they're cool with that, I hand them a SB

This is the south guys.

I don't shove anything down anyone's throat, not good for biz, not good for me nor the R3volution.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

Oh well hell, I thought you actually wanted to go after

something. The plea for help, the seeming push over a super opportunity of a large crowd.. yada

Last thing I'd want to do is the "hang out" style of campaigning. Stand around and wait for them to say something off of your bumper sticker? Go for it tiger. :)

Perhaps we see things a little differently

and I don't mind you disagreeing with me.

Feeding freedom is one thing, shoving it down peoples throats is another.

I'm trying to win hearts and minds with kindness and education with tact.

One must recognize that when people are on vacation, they are in a different frame of mind than usual.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

How you could link being proactive to shoving it down

their throat is the question. People are going to sporting events to relax too and malls.. Should we not bother them there either? How about their homes?

Maybe the guy just driving by at a signwave just wants to be left alone so he can listen to his Nervana and chill. :)

This exchange

is a great argument for anti-federalism. What works in some states, won't work in others.

You're absolsutely correct

I only know what will likely work and is working in my world here in the Carolina's

I profess to have no clue elsewhere in regards to this. (Well, somewhat, but that won't be discussed publicly)

You're doing what you think works for you

You're not qualified to speak for a whole state. Geographical placement doesn't give you a magical perspective. People are people.

I'd guarantee you many different approaches would work just fine.

See if you can make a deal to borrow or rent an IMAC,
as it should make good business sense to them.

Tks I will stop by Monday morning

Help me with my argument to them that is might be good business sense to them. If the GM isn't a Dr Paul supporter, I'm probably SOL though

make an offer

offerto take the tech you need and any brochures they have, make flyers for them, managers special, offering the people who see you, to get 25% off or something when they bring the flyer to the store.

I'd write up my propsoal...

The store
address/phone/ names. equipment you want /need to use

is to be displayed at
address/ time, dates, gratis by name of store and management/owner

With flyers approved by name
Have them and yousign it... you will return it, or get it at a discount.. everyone who brings in a flyer's purchase contributes to you buying the equipment you showed....

GOOD LUCK!!

Get legit traffic number, its

Get legit traffic number, its even better if you have concrete evidence to show them the numbers. Its free advertising for them in a new market (bikers). You can even offer to post up a sign with their store location.

TMOT video speech & music from Marietta Rally

TMOT was excellent at this rally - both his words and his music.

BTW guys, I think I have things mostly figured out, except the speakers

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

There are places you can rent

There are places you can rent a projector, screen, laptop, and speakers relatively cheaply (at least in my area)... You might also want to call different djs and party service owners and ask if they support Ron paul and, if yes, tell them the situation.

tks but I have minimal space to work with

A TV or a laptop is fine, projection screen would simply not work

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

32" LCD TV with DVD combo

is what you need, then asking for people to make you DVDs that you can just pop in and play.

no messing around with the computer.

even better, great idea!

My tech savvy is weak

Thanks
