Stop the waving of anything "Statement" oriented, ex. revolution, google Ron Paul, Who is Ron Paul..etc.

Please start grabbing voters.

Sign Examples, all of these should end with "vote for Ron Paul" or "call 1877ronpaul" something that will give them info.

"Want to preserve your property values?"

"Want to avoid foreclosures"

"want to REALLY end the terrorist threat against us"

"want to bring our soldiers home where they belong"

"want to REALLY feel secure again"

"Want to have buying power again"

"want to end taxes on social security checks"

This list is endless.......please think of your neighbors and what their important issues are before you make signs....address their issues and lead them to Dr. Paul

Maybe at this precise moment in the history of the campaign "Google Ron Paul" isn't quite the message to spread, but your point is well taken.

You *must* be area specific! Target federal issues that are local to your area.

I always get a good response with "BRING OUR TROOPS HOME"

I agree. There are more valuable and constructive ways of contributing than to have your time eaten up by sign waving. The most important being finding new RP voters.

As large numbers of cars pass sign waves bear in mind that a very very small sliver of the electorate votes in primary elections. If a car honks, do you know who that voter is? If not, then how can you possibly turn that person out to the polls.

We should be in the phase of the campaign where we focus all of our energies on canvassing and identifing Ron Paul voters and them turning them out to the polls.

Agreed. Custom signs with issues are far more effective than the signs from the campaign store.

How about, "John McCain wants to grant amnesty to illegal aliens and send your children to die in Iraq for the next 100 years. Be smarter than New Hampshire -- vote for Ron Paul."

I agree 100% The Revolution and Google RP slogans have been out-dated for a few months. We need to be pushing issues and slogans, and pushing POPULAR ones for the AREA:

"bring the troops home"
"end the IRS"
"secure the border"

I think it might be time for some slogans that seem cheesy or vague to us, but will appeal tot he impulse voter:

"save the economy"
"put America first"
"build a stronger defense"
"support the military"

Its time for the Ron Paul NWPA Art Department to get busy.

a few more:

Your Money is worth less everyday. Ron Paul will fix that.

Stop wasting social security!

Take the corruption out of government.

Stop being the world's police.

Restore the surplus.

Small government = less taxes
