Why not do something Ron did allready in this picture? Almost free and impressive publicity

April 25, 1979
Paul, second from left, with Rep. George Hansen (R-Idaho), left, and other members of Congress, gathers around a truck loaded with 44,300 simulated gold bricks in Washington. The men were showing their strong opposition to the estimated $4.1 billion it would cost the U.S. taxpayers to give away the Panama Canal. Long before Paul discovered Friedrich Hayek and other free-market economists, he got a lesson in sound money from his oldest brother, Bill. At the height of World War II the Paul boys were laying aside quarters from their Pittsburgh Press routes and pooling pennies earned from pulling dirty milk bottles off the line at the family dairy to buy war bonds. One day, Ronnie asked: "Why doesn’t the government just PRINT this money?" Well," Bill responded, "then the money wouldn’t have any value."

Why not make pile of snow (or real bricks) that represents US national debt? Can you imagine how huuuuuuge pile that would be? People still cant picture it for them selfs. They cant imagine how much trillions of dollars look like... This would open their eyes.In that picture is $4.1 billion. Can you see how huuuuuuuuuuuuge $15.003 trillion pile of gold would be!!!!!!!!!!!! People need something simple and catchy to get their attention. This would definetley do the trick!!!! You can put monitors to follow these web pages:

Last time he schooled Guliani. Now he can school every single candidate and voters!!!!! Can you imagine Ron Paul gives speech in front of that monster pile about economy and how he was only one to predict it and how other candidates created this and will continue building this pile while he would deal with it....
