View Full Version : Chalk up one For Ron! Quick and Dirty grassroots

12-12-2007, 06:53 PM
Interest in a coordinated effort of self-inflicted mobile Graffiti?
If so, we have a day or two, to get the word out.

I posted this in another forum, and had a little bit of interest.
Thought I would drop in here too.

What I am referring to is cheap, easy..and washable.
It's Window Chalk. Just for a few days. Would this be possible on short notice.
I'd love to see messages about Ron, rolling over my town.

3 days of this on your cars, spreading the message. Then, after the teaparty, it goes away.
Thousands of cheap roving billboards! Why not?

Details below:

What if we all did this!?
What if, starting Thursday night, as a runup to the teaparty, we all used this simple technique to put a message on our cars?

All of the sudden, cars all over the country started sporting a grassroots message. Others would see us, we would see each other (we'd honk and wave).
More and more cars, with messages as simple as "Ron Paul"
and TEAPARTY07.COM, and RONPAUL2008.com.

People would notice this, more than even a bumpersticker (they all look the same from a distance)

All weekend, leading up to the teaparty event.
Then BOOM, After the party, they all go away. We wash our windows.
That might be as dramatic. When all the car windows go blank again.

AS another poster mentioned they make a special chalk just for this purpose. Could we do this, could we get the message out fast enough, to get thousands of cars "RonPaul'ed"?

i like the idea, but it seems fairly cheesy.

I created a template long ago to paint "Ron Paul Revolution" on your window. You can download it here. Instructions within.

I would be pissed if someone window chalked my car.
Ok, I mis-read what you wrote. I thought you ment strangers cars.

Maybe a little cheesy.
But the chalk (made specifically for windows) comes in many colors.
It can be bought at Hobby stores, craft stores, automotive stores.
For under 20 bucks usually..

We'd have to act fast.
TwinTurboMike has a template.

the idea is to make people wonder.
I think it might pique a little interest, and for the small investment you might create an additional donor or two.

Just paint on the Teaparty website, the Ron Paul HQ website.
Maybe something about taking part in HISTORY, and how not to be left out!

Sure, I'm down with that.

My kid does this kind of stuff for her athletic events anyway so ill let her go at the car in the morning.

Couldn't hurt. RP Revolution on each side and the teaparty07.com and ronpaul2008.com and a reference to helping to make history on the 16th on the back.

Thanks grizzums!

I'm doing it as well.
Now that the blimp is delayed, and may not make it for TeaParty Time.
This idea might be more important than I originally thought..

Any other interest?
Or any suggestions for a succinct slogan that will make people remember?

12-12-2007, 09:57 PM
I'll do it.

i like chalking up sidewalks leading into large buildings...

Chalking up the sidewalk.
Did you know that when Ron Paul appeared in Reno, on the 20th of last month, a bunch of students chalked up the ENTIRE US Constitution, on the sidewalk, outside the venue? A greeting card of sorts.

So, pretend your car, is a large building. And get to it!

Anything for Dr. P!

12-12-2007, 11:37 PM
Spread the word!

I'd love to see cities full of these cars.
So, who else is in?

c'mon, it's cheap, and easy. If you have an artistic bent..It won't look "cheesy" either.:D
