Attn. ALL Florida & other early-primary Meetups!! Let's cooperate to give ALL our signs another week+ helping our country!!!Submitted by sarcasmo on Wed, 01/23/2008 - 08:56
By Wednesday, Jan. 30th Florida's primary will be over. If Florida's meetups cooperate and work hard on that day & maybe the day after, though, we could give all our signs another week of supporting Ron Paul, and help our neighboring states! (This could also lead to a few "free" one-way rides for any rabid Ron Paul supporters wanting to get from Miami to Georgia!)
Here's my idea:
We simply ship our signs to Georgia & Alabama (or even other states!). The only problem will be herding ALL of the cats the morning of Jan. 30th. That Wednesday morning all your Ron Paul signs need to come down, ideally in as undamaged a condition as possible.
With a couple of pickup trucks (anyone in the Keys wanna do a road trip to Atlanta?) or even the small kind of U-Hauls, a couple of Miami supporters could set out northward on both I95 and I75 with all the signs from Miami. Ideally this would begin ASAP on Wednesday. They'd both already be in contact (I hope...) with the meetups on their sides of the state, and somehow mid-state places like Orlando which aren't all that near to either road would relay their RP signs to the trucks & headed-North to Georgia!
In the meantime (remember, this is my fantasy, but occasionally they *DO* come-true...) *ANOTHER* Ron Paul supporter in the Jacksonville area snags all the signs he/she can over there and heads West on I10, doing the same thing with other meetups' signs all the way over to Alabama!! This person would also take the initiative to be in touch with all meetups along the way on I10.
Needless to say, for this to be effective we'd need GA & AL meetups to be ready to receive and *immediately* distribute the FL signs effectively, but this is an opportunity for a LOT of RP signs which might otherwise go to waste. It's time-sensitive material, and doing this right could save the Paul campaign some money and give GA/AL a bigger impact in the important last-week before Super-duper Tuesday! Besides, "my" spinning "Media Bias Makes Me Do This" sign is included in the bargain!! ;) Another side-effect of this will be to impress Florida's election officials & sign bureaucrats with our stuff all suddenly-vanishing the morning after the primary.
Please forward this URL far & wide in all three states (but especially FL & *especially* Miami/Jacksonville) as we still need to find the 2 Miami-area volunteers & the Jacksonville volunteer who can do this, but if we start now it's possible IMO. If someone could also please post this URL to an appropriate area of the Ron Paul Forums site that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
