Creatively Supporting Ron Paul

Al Chrzan sends along the following: "This is my place of business and I'm an independent paralegal. I've plastered my office with Ron Paul stuff and I just thought it might provide others with ideas or courage to do similar."

Thanks Al! Nice to see that some of those posters I put together are being put to good use, too!

A Rally of One

Since Ron Paul is a singular individual, it occurred to me that - where organizing a group or event is often time-consuming and difficult - it might be effective for a single person to stage a rally. All by himself/herself.

"A Rally of One"

This is a rather low-key rally. All you need is one poster on a stick. The poster would say, "A Rally of One for Ron Paul 2008". You might bring a few flyers, a folding chair, a good book to read, a bottle of water and find a pleasant spot to sit.

That's it. No fanfare, no hoopla, no bull-horns. Just you sitting quietly in support of Ron Paul. If a passerby stops to ask what's going on, the reply might be, "This is my personal rally for Ron Paul. Please support him for president." If nobody turns up, read your book. Do this often, and in the same spot.

It would be helpful to be able to explain some of Dr. Paul's points, but the flyers could do that, or the little cards that are available.

The zen approach: less is more.

I often thought that, if 100 people turned up for a rally that would be interesting and good. But if the same 100 people all took lawn chairs and spread themselves out across a park, each with a sign - now that would be pretty memorable and, I think, fun.

Bodhidharma!

Zenpiper,

You just inspired me. Less is more. I dig that. There is a Chinese saying, "If I keep a green bough in my heart then the singing bird will come."

I'm starting to think that Dr. Paul is a Zen master . . .

Thanks.
