The Ron Paul Difference

I have friends that support Obama and others that support Romney. I am getting so sick of the crap they keep posting on one or the other candidate bashing the other candidate. I made a graphic to send out. I would like to get an opinion on it. Thanks.

I agree

I whole-heartily agree with your post. The sad thing is that the "us versus them" paradigm is so alluring because of it instills a sense of identity through mod mentality. If you tried to talk to your friends about real issue they will probably ignore it because it is outside the scope of what they know, which are the letters R and D. We have a long road ahead of us!

Paul is one of the best men alive!!!

Love you Doc!!!

I believe that Ron Paul is

I believe that Ron Paul is one of the few in congress who would be seen as a statesman and not a politician by our founders.

I loved what Jack Hunter had to say at the Sun Dome Rally

Jack Hunter said, "Simply hating the other side is not an ideology. It's partisanship. It's childish and it's useless."

Idea for another one

On another thread, JonForRon came up with a slogan for a bumper sticker. (http://www.dailypaul.com/253216/a-sad-day#comment-2720206) It would also be nice to have it in a form we could use to send back to all the obnoxious "forwards" we get:

RON PAUL DIDN'T LOSE: YOU DID

I'm enjoying seeing Ron Paul's picture on the front page....

again, at least for a little while.

Could you change....

Rather than saying "Does not speak in terms of bad guys vs. good guys - Democrats vs. Republicans. Instead talks about principles, liberty, and ideas."

This makes it sound like you're promoting Paul himself.

Could you make it (or another one) that says "Do not speak in terms of bad guys vs. good guys - Democrats vs. Republicans. Instead, speak in terms of principles, liberty, and ideas."

I don't know. That might make it sound like

Ron Paul was telling us to be like that. Rather, it's how he IS. Maybe some people might say, why are you (still) trying to promote him. But personally, I think it's better this way - not telling people how to be but just showing them a good role model.

I too am so sick of the

I too am so sick of the constant message of hate, especially on fox. It reminds me of the 10 minutes of hate from the book 1984. Nice job.

The message of freedom unites

=)

Beautiful job! My own two cents

for what it's worth... imho it was fine the way it was, though black outline maybe a good idea IF over the white collar. I thought it was classier without the title at the top (which also changes the look of Ron Paul); plus it puts the focus on "different" - when everyone already knows he's different (he's the "crazy guy," the "cranky old man"...) whereas the way you first thought of it brings your eyes to the text - *how* he's different. And I agree with holbrook - words easier to read in upper and lower case (plus it looks nicer). The first way instantly read "statesman" to me.

I get those "forwards" all the time. Sometimes I just delete them, sometimes I respond to point out some salient omitted fact (like the national debt that both candidates plan to increase, for one) and THEN delete them. The level of dialogue, distortion of facts, simplistic logic, the cliches... I can't stand it. I'm so glad I'll have something to send back that says it all. Thank you gltskline!

Both great

Just needs to have Ron Paul's name. Sadly most will not know who it is. Even though they have heard me talk and post about Ron Paul all the time even my friends and family will not make the connection without the name.

Just my opinion if I may

It sure looks better now, but I think your original letter style was better ( upper case and lower case )
Words are more easily recognized by both upper and lower case.

What an attractive picture!

Great job!

Way to Go!

Thank you! You made a fine poster! And figured out how to get a photo of Ron Paul back on the site!

If everyone who starts a thread does this, Mr. Nystrom may decide it would be best to put your poster where the old RP photo used to be.

That would restore much peace and friendship to the site. It really needs both right now.

Great Idea!

Great Idea!

Oyez

AMEN TO THAT

My thoughts to on the matter.I wear my Ron Paul wrist band with honor to a good man.

Money talks and dogs bark

Some Sheeple like their chains

RP then becomes their gadfly which they want to chase off so they can continue enjoying their illusion.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

Beautiful Poster. You go

Big People talk about Ideas...
Mediocre people talk about Other People.
Small people talk about Themselves. Consider asking them about "How come Obombney are not talking about the police state? The TSA? The troops they won't let come home? Just for starters.

Good

but you need to put black borders around the text so it shows up over white. In photoshop I believe it's called stroke, found in the layer effects panel after double clicking on the text layer. Or you can use a drop shadow.

This.

This.

I Like It...

Keep on fighting buddy

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!

let's start the "American" party

i recently saw Kirk Douglas giving an interview at the motion picture academy and it was awesome what he said: "we have too many democrats and too many republicans and not enough Americans"

screw the two parties, let's rub it in their faces and start the American party before it's too late

Get an outline on that text

Get an outline on that text so it's easier to read.

At least not without calling them on their

hypocrisy in supporting wars on innocents and the police state and the $trillions of debt.

Nice.

Instead talks about principles, liberty and ideas, and how to achieve them within the duoploy that exists in America today.
