    The USA Today ad is complete - will be in print November 21st

    Digg link: http://digg.com/2008_us_elections/Co...d_in_USA_Today


    The full page ad commissioned by Lawrence Lepard is complete and is set to appear in USA Today on Wednesday November 21st with a right hand placement in the first section- NEWS. The word is that USA Today was willing to do this ad because it was a grassroots effort, amazing.

    The concept for the ad was originally developed by "max" here at RonPaulForums.com and tailored based on Lawrence's wishes from hundreds of comments from forum members in an open source ad development methodology.

    Lawrence passes on his thanks for everyone who provided input but please hold your critical comments in this thread as it will do no good.

    This is an amazing American story, please share it.

    A PDF of the ad is available now and free for anyone to use. If you use this ad with changes be sure to remove Lawrence's and Linda's name.

    The PDF is here (someone please rehost this):

    Excellent! I can't wait to buy my copy!
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom -- go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
    Samuel Adams, Address to the State House in Philadelphia, 1776

    It's perfect! I am going to buy several copies and be sure they get placed where they will get good circulation. I'll keep one in pristine condition for the history books!

    Its simply amazing!

    Whats even more amazing is that you tried to listen to everyones suggestions to improve the ad, than actually make the changes needed. I probably would have been crazy by now =p
    This is going to be really good. THANK YOU

    If everyone would please, use the original download link first until it expires.

    Afterwords:

    This link will download it to your computer as a .pdf file.

    I just tested, and it opened directly in Adobe Reader, simply select "save a copy".

    Thank you! That goes for everyone involved. A truly grass root effort online, a like of I have never seen before.

    I read the ad and printed myself a copy of it.

    The day this runs, people with web sites need to blog about it and get the fact out, how this ad was made. Get the story picked up by other media... hey and maybe free advertisement.

    I'm all smiles from ear to ear.
