Paul Backers "Paint The Town Ron" [9-29 National paint the town Ron day]

Paul Backers "Paint The Town Ron" posted October 1, 2007

Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul say they brought their "shock and awe" sign campaign to Chattanooga Cleveland area roads over the weekend.

Lauren Walker of the Paul campaign said, "You have probably noticed “Ron Paul Revolution” and “Ron Paul 2008” signs and banners everywhere.

"In the wee hours of the night and early morning on Friday and Saturday, bands of Ron Paul supporters were roving the streets of Hamilton County hanging banners and signs in a concerted effort to let people know about their candidate, Ron Paul.

"These young, inspired, patriotic Ron Paul supporters call this event 'Paint the Town Ron,' claiming a media blackout on Republican Ron Paul has forced them to use 'shock and awe' techniques like these.

Chris Holley, is founder of www.PaintTheTownRon.com and organizer of the thousands of “Paulites” taking part in the national grassroots event in over 80 cities across the U.S. He said, “It’s the only way the public will find out about the man people are calling ‘Modern-Day Founding Father.’”

He said after the May 5 Republican Debate, Ron Paul became the most “Googled” and most “Yahooed” (search engines) person for two months, May and June, 2007. And he said he is the most “YouTubed” presidential candidate of all time. Mr. Holley said, "He’s winning all the internet and call-in debate polls. People listen to the debates and tell us he’s the only candidate that makes sense. What he says is American and wholesome. And America is waking up to the opportunity to vote for a 'Founding Father' candidate after years of having a choice of the lesser of two evils."

   On the weekend of September the 29th Ron Paul 2008 Meetup Groups from around the country are going to saturate their towns, counties and cities with Ron Paul banners and signs. We will make videos of the event and post them to youtube. This is one step in the fight against the Main Stream Media's blackout of Ron Paul. We hope not only to make local news for our groups, but possibly to make national news as well.

  This event is taking off to a nation wide level ! If just have 100 meetups do it across the land then there is NO way the Media can ignore us and we will show them that we may started on the internet, but now have it taken to the streets and there will be no stopping us!

You can’t make this kind of stuff up. Way to get your favorbility rating lower than Harry Reid’s.

Apparently, there aren’t many Ron supporters in my neck of the woods. Didn’t see a single sign or bumper sticker.

Paul has more than enough cash on hand to be in the race until the GOP convention, given how Paul allocates his spending.

Nope, having a diversified portfolio to begin with, there is no need.

That explains the "Ron Paul for President" banner I saw hanging illegally from an overpass in town on Saturday.

The backwards “Love” in the Revolution is just a bit creepy.

On the other hand, good for them, their candidate might be a loon but the supporters are doing whatever they can to get him media attention.

Maybe some other 3rd-tier candidates could try to inspire supporters to take steps like this to build up some media chatter.

What no keywords?

You can add any keywords you want by clicking keyword.

If you care to accuse me of adding obnoxious keywords, be my guest, I'll gladly characterize you as one of the obnoxious liars that support Ron Paul.

Is that an "official statement" from a campaign official?

I wasn’t accusing you, Was just surprised that there weren’t any yet when I looked at the post. But I see that’s been fixed.

"Maybe some other 3rd-tier candidates could try to inspire supporters.."

Or how about some "top tier" candidates trying this? Think it would fly?

I think the top candidates don’t need the name recognition or media attention. It would look desparate.

And since there are negatives involved, the risk of making people upset would outweigh the negligible gain.

It is my understanding that these paint the town Ron events are illegal.

If so then why is it ok for all of us (Ron Paul Supporters) to break the laws and when our opponents do something illegal, we cry foul and question their integrity?

I mean think about it, at the end of the day most of us here support Dr. Paul for his honesty and integrity in a world of such corruption. (That is what makes him different than the others, right?)

Even though we do not agree with each other on many things, we stand together and fight for justice, the American way of life and the rule of law. (The Constitution.)

Are we the hypocrites?

=================

wtf are you talking about.. its not illegal to put up signs on public property..

=================

Civil Disobedience?
Some laws need to be broken to show the unfairness of those laws.
Rosa Parks, MLK, Lysander Spooner, Boston Tea Party

=================

yep.. even dr. paul suggested *peaceful* civil disobedience..

=================

AFAIK not - there is a sign posted to a tree along a road that has been there for years (public property) it says "Jesus is Coming Soon" lol

=================

AFAIK not - there is a sign posted to a tree along a road that has been there for years (public property) it says "Jesus is Coming Soon" lol

=================

It may be against some city codes, but it is protected under the constitution.

=================

So are you saying that it is an unfair law for the people of this country not to be able to litter the roads with whatever message we believe to be important?
