Ron Paul Freeway Blogging: Take Action *update: date chosen*

I was thinking: what if a bunch of Ron Paul supporters and/or liberty-oriented citizens, on certain dates, all freeway blogged with slogans about peace, freedom, or Ron Paul? (For those of you who don't know what freeway blogging is, it is putting up signs on the freeway or other areas of high traffic to get a message out; it's not vandalism, it's freedom of speech) We could pick a few dates, make some youtube videos explaining it, and all go crazy posting signs on the chosen days.

What do you think?

I picked some dates that might be good suggestions. We wouldn't do all of them, just a few:
January 19: Martin Luther King Day
January 20: Inauguration Day
February 1: National Freedom Day
February 16: Presidents Day
May 25: Memorial Day
June 14: Flag Day
July 4: Independence Day
September 7: Labor Day
September 11: anniversary of 9/11
October 12: Columbus Day
November 11: Veterans' Day

Is it a good idea? Bad idea? And which dates would you choose?

-------------------------------------------

Update: a date has been chosen - January 20th (and the evening before). Now this "event" needs publicity and slogans (for the signs). If you have suggestions, please post.

What are your thoughts about

What are your thoughts about this date:
January 20th (or the evening before)

Do you have possible slogan suggestions? However, if we are doing it for the inauguration, we should probably have messages related to it.
So far, this is what has been suggested:
- End the Fed
- Ron Paul was Right
- No Real ID OR No National ID

Could anyone make a youtube video about this or know someone that can? Any other ways to publicize it?

And how many people are willing to do this?

I'm in!

I've got I-95 from Quantico, VA south for about 35 miles covered. Just say when!

END THE FED Fridays.

I would like to introduce End The Fed Fridays, and ask you to spread the word. I would like for each of you to go out and do something that day to promote ending the federal reserve. Wave signs, stick stickers, post flyers, other creative signage, whatever. Go talk to elected officials, lets just make everyone take notice. Not this invisible army anymore!

If we all do it on the same day, it is more noticable. I cant think of a better way to organize millions of people besides assigning it a day, so therefore End the Fed Fridays!

Everyone do their part, and get someone else to do things on friday too.

GO BIG!!!!

Wrapping paper is on clearance, the back is WHITE, and you can make a FRIGGIN HUGE freeway sign

END THE FED.

Great idea!

I would suggest making a separate post about this, it seems like a great idea (maybe for once a month). Then we could plan something like: next Friday make sure every senator gets a letter about ending the fed, etc.

Bump!

One day is enough! Its time for change.

Highway blogging would be great for January 20, it might help draw more attention to YAL's event on college campuses.

Do you have a slogan

Do you have a slogan suggestion if we were to do this the 20th?

And do you think we could get this organized with enough participants in the next 2 weeks?

I love freeway blogging!

Here is The Video From My "Freeway Blogging Mission"...

I went on a wake the Black-Friday-shopping-sheeple sign planting mission, with signs left over from the Philly End the Fed rally, Lynrd Skynrd blaring. Video set to Steve Dore's "Burn the FRN". Check it out, pass it on, do it near you!

Overpass Advertising

A bunch of us did an overpass campaign in Minneapolis during the RNC and Rally for the Republic. This is a great idea. We need to re-awaken the spirit we had last year!

Big ole Texas BUMP....

for a great idea.

Blogging the highways and byways.

A good idea. Important to have a powerfully consistent message. In this time it is the FED and the end of that viper.
I suggest a unified theme of END THE FED and a National campaign to do that.

We have support from LaRouche

They could say

"Ron Paul was right."

great idea

bump!

Thanks!

oops double post.

I'm a big fan of the garage

I'm a big fan of the garage sale sign effect. Just a few hours of work by a handful of people (in my case, often just me and one loyal buddy) can convert into being the talk of the town.

When the first bailout was going through, I had all sorts of "Call your Congressman" "Bailout People, Not Banks" etc... If enough people could get involved, we could get some press and have a rather worthwhile effect. It lets other people know that they are not the only ones having these thoughts and should inspire courage.

I also like printing out little flyers that I can cut up and "drop off" in the aisles of my local walmarts and other high traffic areas. These are nice because people will stumble upon them and learn something. I always make sure there are links to either CampaignforLiberty or the DailyPaul (In October, it was VoterBomb of course!).

I think this sort of guerilla marketing is something that can grow and be quite influential in the coming months. The flyers take no time and are small enough to conveniently set on any shelf while you're doing your shopping. A single patriot can reach a lot of people. Now there's an ARMY of ONE!

Great idea

That's a great idea! Where do you get the flyers or do you make them?

Yeah I just lay out the info

Yeah I just lay out the info on photoshop, but you could really use any program you want. There is always new material to put on the flyers, I usually just take a look for some of the more informative DailyPaul posts or links.

I do black and white usually (Although I couldnt resist getting some of those McCain/Paul/ War/Peace posters printed up at the local print shop in all their colorful glory). This makes it cheap and easy to photocopy!

Cool!

I think I might try it

Mike,
Your business,and talents could be a key player in this revolution. I really feel a calling for you.
Guerrilla advertising is one of the biggest weapons we have in the infowar. And as Ron Paul said "It is about getting the information out there"
People are more ready for the truth than any other time. When It starts affecting their food, they will REALLY be ready.
