Ron Paul Across America

Another e-mail:

I was driving across Michigan recently, and when I got out into the

rural areas, the only yard signs I saw for ANY politician were for

Ron Paul.  There was a truly enormous one, almost a billboard

(except for being vinyl), on one farmer’s property adjacent to 1-

94.  I checked Paul’s website, and there’s nothing that size

available on it.  Also, the sign I saw was white-on-black, while

everything on Paul’s website is the traditonal red, white, and

blue.  Which means that the guy that owns the property must have

paid out-of-pocket to have a professionally made giant vinyl sign

to put up.

I personally think that Paul is the Howard Dean of this campaign,

in an that an enthuisistic, almost fanatical grassroots does not

equal votes.  But it does count for something.  I think all the

Paul people, almost all Republicans of one sort or another, are

going to end up sitting out the general election.  They’re going to

say they see no difference between Rudy and Hillary, the way Nader

voters in Florida said at there was nothing to chose from between

Bush and Gore.  Could swing a couple states in a close election.
