I'm creating this thread to document our adventures while sporting Ron Paul shirts. For me it's always interesting to hear these conversations and interactions.
The last 2 days I ran errands with a campaign looking RP 2012 shirt. Big graphic on the back and small logo on the front. At Office Max, the girl behind the counter said "You know, I've never really been into politics at all, but Ron Paul makes me actually care". I was delighted to hear that.. and replied that she's not the only one who feels that way..
The next day I went to pickup a craigslist purchase... I got there, said yeah, it looks great, I'll take it. He looks at my shirt and says "Ron Paul, huh?" Me: "Yep". and I hand him $25. He says "Go ahead and keep it". I say "No way, this is yours." and he said, "For a Ron Paul supporter, you can have it - spend it somewhere else". I said, fine, I'll donate it! That just made my day right there.
And yet at another stop where I purchase items, the owner of the store (I already know he's a supporter) commented on my shirt and told me he was thrilled when John Stewart responded! So we talked a little more then I finished up my day.
I would say more than half the time I'm out in public I get comments when wearing an RP shirt. I have yet to get a truley negative remark. It makes me feel like I'm connecting with people who think and feel the same, yet need that reassurance they are not alone.
Please feel free to add your own experiences while wearing an RP shirt. I'll keep this thread updated and continue to add mine as well.
