No doubt you have some cajones on you, but I question the value of this type of activism. What would we think of a Romney or Newt supporter showing up at a Ron Paul event with a sign? We'd roll our eyes and dismiss him. It isn't a perfect parallel, but I think the sentiment is largely the same.
The kind of people that show up to a Newt rally are active enough to know Ron's name. What they need is to be convinced he's right on all the issues, not to get his name in front of them. And sadly the way people are you may have helped to convince some of them Paul and his supporters are just a bunch of overzealous kooks.
So do I think you did more harm than good? I really can't say. Just raising the concern as a possibility, and something to consider for the next time.
