Paint your YARD Ron! It's HALLOWEEN!Submitted by JeffnDallas on Fri, 10/05/2007 - 09:53
I appreciate the guy that did the RonPauloween.com website (check it out if you haven't already), as this is a great (and legal) way to go absolutely CRAZY with your yard in an acceptable time of year for such a project.
For those who are in apartments, I know it's a bit different, but if you have an actual YARD, go guerrilla and get creative!
I'm doing a "Give me Liberty, or Give me..." theme with two sides of my front yard (separated by a sidewalk to the front door) appropriately decorated. One side festive and colorful with haybales, pumpkins, red/white/blue, American flags and signs with the liberties we enjoy. The "death" side will be much darker with gravestones depicting the things vanishing from our landscape such as The Consitution, Habeus Corpus, Civil Liberties, National Sovereignty, etc. with skulls, bones, vultures, etc in the yard. You get the idea.
Costume-wise, I'm doing a colonial patriot this year, wearing my Ron Paul buttons and carrying my Liberty Cards to parties I attend.
Now what ideas do YOU ALL have? I would recommend against putting other candidates bumperstickers on the styrofoam gravestones you can buy at a lot of retailers right now. Not exactly in good taste (as if to say you wish them dead) and there's always that possibility of "blowback" from what could be considered hateful.
Still, there are a lot of great minds out there, so post YOUR ideas and let's give everyone a chance to have some fun with this year's Pauloween...:-)
