Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

Guy Fawkes and the movie 'V for Vendetta' resonate very powerfully with the Ron Paul Revolution message, with the power of individuals standing up to the tyranny of government. Now, I don't think we have the the means to get everyone Guy Fawkes masks and descend upon the nations capitol in the millions, but I think we can do something newsworthy on that date...


Any Ideas?

I personally don't think making people associate Ron Paul with violence is a great idea...

V was an anarchist. At least in the comic books. Just sayin'...

Let's use the rally in Philadelphia on November 10 to make our point!

also, remember the British celebrate the fact that the gun powder plot FAILED. The movie is different, yes, but the spirit of the holiday is the opposite of what you describe.

I'm pretty sure that associating the Ron Paul campaign with a comic book hero will do nothing more than expand the tin-foil hat perception of Ron Paul supporters.

Well thank goodness I wear an aluminum foil hat. Sheesh! I'd hate to be associated with that crowd!

Why do people keep associating Ron Paul with V for Vendetta? V is a terrorist

The fact that it WAS British....

We talked about making V a thing at our meetup but decided if we're gonna dress up(like I'd do that-lol) a three cornered hat would be better.

V is a terrorist against an unjust state. Much like the Revolutionaries were terrorists against the British Monarchy in America.

Violence is a bad and immoral idea. But peaceful civil disobedience is not. Unless you think Martin Luther King Jr. was a terrorist.

V is the complete opposite of both Dr. Paul and MLK in that he is a violent anarchist

Not to mention the brainwashing he performed on that girl.
