What have you done for liberty today?

Fellow patriots and Daily Paulers,

To keep this movement's momentum rolling, it is important for everyone to be as involved as possible in their own localities and communities. I am posting this so that we can share ideas to spread our message, reach out to others, and by doing so keep the revolution alive and well. So what have you done to further our cause today or this week?

This is what I did for liberty today:

Today for liberty

We passed out literature to people in the park, put signs and banners along the highway from Sonoma to Calistoga and canvassed a neighborhood. We even got a banner up into a tree in perfect view of the road!

Explained to my friends that the Fed poured the alcohol that wallstreet drank. And Ron Paul called the financial situation the whole way. Most of them don't care that much about politics, but I still plant seeds pretty often.

Love it!

Although I've found that talking about the Federal Reserve to those uninterested in politics isn't a very good way to get them interested. It's a good rallying cry once they know about it, but not a good recruitment tool for our movement. One good way to engage the general public, your friends especially, is to just find out what their issues are and meet them where they stand. For instance if they say the economy is their biggest issue (which is a lot of people's this election cycle), try to explain some free market principles to them in as much layman's terms as possible. Be sure to let them know how it applies to their situation, as this will give them more a reason to look further into it and possibly become more involved. It's not always about what you say, but how you say it. Also be sure to really listen to them, as this will make them more apt to in turn listen to what you have to say.

I am letting you sleep on my couch!

Today for Liberty I drove to Napa, sign waved, gave Dave (main Napa activist) some materials and went door-to-door for a local Supervisor's campaign.

I also started working on a flier for a Liberty candidate for Congress in my district to add to our Ron Paul super brochures that we are going to hand out the next couple days.
