View Full Version : Political Advertising Korean style

I just witnessed the latest election in South Korea. Things are very different from the US elections.

There were these election trucks that drove around blaring loud techno music interspersed with militant sounding campaign speeches. Local groups would organize rally's for candidates and the people campaigning seemed to equate loud passionate screaming with good campaigning. This went on at all hours of the day and night with no end in sight.

Here is one of the election trucks.


I do think that minus the loudspeaker this could be a very useful tactic to use. These trucks are everywhere. Do you guys see Ron Paul trucks everywhere? I'm not in the states so I have no idea what campaign tactics are being used there on the ground.

They also put huge three and four story banners up on the buildings.

Banners like this were also everywhere.

South Korea has a population greater than Canada, Australian, New Zealand, and Sweden combined.

They used paper ballots and counted all of them by hand. They counted the entire country in one day. And they counted them in plain view of the people and the media.

So why can't one tiny state like New Hampshire do that?

Iowa still hasn't counted all of their votes.

Population of South Korea: 49,044,790 (July 2007 est.)
Population of Iowa: 2,982,085 (2006 est.)
Population of New Hampshire : 1,235,786 (2006 est.)

The V is for victory not peace. Think Douglas MacArthur. Note that the candidates are assigned numbers.

#2 won.

Photo Tex (http://www.phototexgroup.com/)

This link above can be of GREAT aid to the Ron Paul campaign.

The fabric, Photo Tex, is what I use to print my Ron Paul bumper clings on. The material is water and weatherproof. It can be stuck, removed, then reapplied to any smooth, clean surface an unlimited amount of times. The clingy side can be removed without leaving ANY residue or damaging the area it was attached to. And no matter how many times it is removed and re-stuck it will always clings exactly like the day it was new.

Check the above link, this stuff has only been on the market for less than a year.

Big companies and local elections have already used it. I think this stuff works the best when put on glass.
The sides of cars and buses would work too.

Lemme know if anyone has any ideas.
