Miss Ron Paul 2008 Contest

Miss Ron Paul 2008 Contest

CONTEST: Win a 16GB Apple iPod Touch!

The purpose of this contest is to raise Ron Paul awareness. With the media ignoring Dr. Paul and excluding him from the debates, something needs done to help spread the word. I consider this my small part in helping. The winner will be decided by a public vote... meaning YOU choose the winner. All proceeds will be donated to the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign.

Sumbit photo(s) of yourself or a friend in Ron Paul gear (sign/shirt/hat/button/etc) to (Click Here) and win a 16GB Apple iPod Touch ($399 value).

No camera or girl?
You can also enter the contest by adding a link to the Miss Ron Paul Contest on your blog or website.

Please take the time today to tell at least one friend about Dr. Paul, his message, why you support him, and why our country needs him now more than ever. The other candidates may have more money, but Dr. Paul has something that no amount of money can buy: He has us. He has our trust, our belief, our support and our love. Let us not let Dr. Paul, nor our country down.


Spotlight! Thomas Baekdal: Ron Paul R[evol]ution Car Wraps

Ron Paul R[evol]ution Car Wraps

A person from the "Ron Paul Revolution" (a grassroots campaign for Ron Paul) asked me if I could help them create a car wrap - which I didn't have time to do - except for these "concepts" I made last night.

Note: These concepts are low-quality "experiments" and cannot be used for print. They give people an idea of what a car could look like, after which the real print-ready graphic needs to be made (and that takes much longer to do).

I went with the traditional way to promote presidential candidates - red, white and blue and the American flag etc. I used the Ford Edge because it is coming in a hybrid version and is "made in America" - both good things to be associated with for a potential US president.

Does this mean that I officially support Ron Paul?

No. He is a good person, and I like many of his views - but I am not getting into the minefield of endorsing any specific person for President. Also (and much more relevant) I am not a US citizen, so nobody really cares what I think.

But if I was, I would vote for Scott Adams (the creator of Dilbert) - read why in his blog post "How to Get Elected President". I would also vote for any presidential candidate who could raise the very low dollar exchange rate - so that I could earn more money when dealing with companies in the US.

Note about hiring me to design car wraps:
Designing car wraps is only a hobby of mine, and as such I only take on 2-6 jobs every year (which means that I turn down 95% of all the requests I get). Another thing is that I am not a car wrapping company, so I cannot create the final print. You still need to contact a car wrapping company to get it printed.

Let's make Ron Paul signs the last thing people see before they

Some people do not decide who they will vote for until they arrive at their voting station. We can have an impact on those voters. I
have heard people in past elections say to sign wavers at voting stations,
?I don't know who you are, but because you are here, I just voted for your
candidate.? It sounds crazy, but it is true.
Every voting station should have a sign wave on your election
day. (Take the whole day off work so you can really make a difference). Itis usually
a long day so be prepared. Our voting day in AL is from 7am to7pm. If you cannot muster enough support in your area to cover all the voting
stations, then go out the night before, and put several signs
around the voting booths that won't have sign wavers. Also, if sign wavers
can't be there all day (7 to 7) at least try to be there for peak voting
hours such as early commute, lunch, late commute. Unattended signs should be
put up late the evening before voting day so they won't be taken down.
Don't just post signs at the stations near you, check the counties around
you as well. We need everybody to do this!You can get a precinct list from your Secretary of StatesOffice, or they should be able to tell you where you can obtain one.They maytell you to check with your local Probate Judges Office. You can try searching Google for their web sites. Sometimes they have the list on one of their
sites. If they do not, their phone numbers should be there. Many times
this list tells which precincts (voting stations) have the largest turn
out. This is helpful in deciding which stations to sign wave at, and which to
just put signs up at. You can also get in contact with your state
coordinator, or someone else in the campaign, who might have access to votervault
information for your state. With it, you could possibly narrow it
down even further, knowing which precincts are heavier on Independentsor Republicans.
At least wave at your own voting station, or the largest one in
your county if someone else isn't covering it. This is something
everybody can do, it is easy and fun. Take the family, pack a lunch, make a day of it that you'll never forget.
If you live near another state that is having their primary on a
different day than yours, drive on over and help out your neighbor state
with this effort on their voting day as well.

Note: Check your state law concerning how close you can get to a
station during an election to either sign wave or place signs.
Once again,
check the Secretary of State or Probate Judge web sites for this
information. In Alabama you must be more than thirty feet away
from the
entrance of a voting station. You might want to take along
material to
pass out for those who ask questions before voting.

If you have questions; call us at 256-729-8867

Please pass this on.

Instead of signs, we should use our cars. Our cars are free advertising space that every Ron Paul supporter can donate at no cost!!! Mobile billboards we don’t have to pay for?

First off, check out this amazing vehicle wrap:

Basically, we want something even sweeter than this for Ron Paul.
Here are some thumbnails of other examples:

So far we have a ton of support for this idea and roughly 500 people who have volunteered to have their car to be wrapped in completely removable vinyl for the purpose of getting Ron Paul elected. As of now we are putting the finishing touches on, including getting it functional in IE. What we need help with right now is graphic designs/artwork for the wraps.

The adobe illustrator template can be downloaded here. It is 1 20th to scale.

Please if you have any artistic talent, download the template and see what you can come up with. Please send all your ideas to
