Ron Paul signs around Jacksonville
« on: August 17, 2007, 02:44:14 PM »
Has anybody in Jacksonville noticed a ton of Ron Paul signs around town? I was in Cincinnati last weekend. I am driving back from the airport and the signs are all along 9A. They say REVOLUTION with the "EVOL" highlighted to represent love I suppose. Did these things show up overnight? Was he in town?

I noticed them last weekend.  Driving from San Marco to the Hart Expressway, there were about 3-4 signs visible.  Probably the result of a passionate supporter, methinks.

I, too, have wondered about the Ron Paul signs. They're proliferating out in Jacksonville Beach as well. All I know is, *I* didn't do it!

I have been boning up on Mr Paul... I think he might have my vote.

Apparently Ron Paul is has or soon will pay a visit.  The same overnight appearance of signs happened here in Greenville SC a month or so ago.

And I wholeheartedly agree he is the only true conservative running.

Not all the media are biased.  A local newspaper in New Hampshire
 reported on an annual GOP bbq in the town of Hollis.  It could be called
 "the Ron Paul show," they said, since the far bigger crowd that usual
 consisted mostly of our supporters.  One volunteer even rented an
 airplane and flew a wonderful sign around the sky.  What great, creative,
 self-starting people I'm meeting, at every stop, all of them united by a
 love of America and American freedom.

Politics is usually about division.  But this campaign is just the
 opposite.  Not only are our volunteers a bunch of happy warriors, but
 they also practice the virtues of tolerance and peace, just as they want
 the nation to do.

The other day, the state chairman of an opposing campaign (not in New
 Hampshire!), angrily tore a sign out of one of our supporter's hands and
 trashed it.  Different people with different beliefs might have
 responded differently.  But our people, though they'd been standing in the
 rain all day, applied the Golden Rule.  It's because of quiet heroes
 that I know we can change this country.

A reporter in New Hampshire told me this story about Florida:  she had
 seen the same three supporters working every day passing out our
 literature, and so decided to interview them.  She was startled to discover
 that one was a Republican, one was a Democrat, and one was an
 Independent.  But I wasn't.

Freedom brings us all together. We can all agree on leaving people
 alone to plan and live their own lives, rather than trying to force them to
 obey at the point of a gun, as runaway government does.  Instead of
 clawing at each other via the warfare-welfare state, people under
 liberty can cooperate in a unity of diversity.

There is no need to use government to threaten others who have
 different standards, or to be threatened by them.  Looking to our Founders,
 our traditions, and the Constitution, we can build, in peaceful
 cooperation, a free and prosperous society.

At a talk show in Nashua, New Hampshire, the host asked me about the
 fair tax.  Well, I agree on getting rid of the IRS, I told her, but I
 want to replace it with nothing, not another tax.  But let's not forget
 the inflation tax, I said.

This was something she had never considered, but after I talked about
 the depreciation of our dollar by the Federal Reserve, its creation of
 artificial booms and busts, and its bailouts of the big banks and Wall
 Street firms, to the detriment of the average person, she loved it.
 That is another tax, she agreed, a hidden and particularly vicious tax.

They try to tell us that the money issue is boring or irrelevant.  In
 fact, it is the very pith of our social lives, and morally,
 Constitutionally, and economically, the central bank is a disaster. Thanks to the
 work of this movement, Americans are starting to understand what has
 been hidden from them for so long:  that we have a right to sound and
 honest money, not to a dollar debauched for the special interests.

Unconstitutional government has created a war crisis, a financial
 crisis, a dollar crisis, and a freedom crisis.  But we don't have to take
 it.  We don't have to passively accept more dead soldiers, a lower
 standard of living, rising prices, a national ID, eavesdropping on our
 emails and phone calls, and all the rest.

We can return to first principles, and build the brightest, most
 brilliant future any people on earth has ever aspired to.  Help me teach
 this lesson.  Help me campaign all over this country, in cooperation with
 our huge and growing volunteer army.  Help me show that change is not
 only possible, but also essential.  Please, make your most generous
 contribution (https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/) to this campaign for
 a Constitutional presidency worthy of our people. Invest in freedom:
 for yourself, for your family, for your future.

Sincerely,

Ron
