Title: Ron Paul Revolution Visits Online Gaming World


The spontaneous order arrived at by Ron Paul supporters who are online gaming enthusiast of the multi-player game "World of Warcraft" sets a new standard of having fun and spreading the good word of Dr. Paul. The gamers had collaborated to all descend in mass in a march across the online land while having their character names including "RP Revolution" which is viewable by other players in this very popular game.

Just something minor, the guild is RP Revolution, I don't think any of the characters were named that (I could be wrong). There are many variations of Ron Paul to choose from but honestly I think lettucebfree had the most original name.

Edit: Ok as I thought about it I do recall people with names like Rprevolution so I am wrong for sure, still I think you should point out the guild tag was RP Revolution and characters had Ron Paul type names
