Fireball crash lands in Des Moines, Iowa

I got a call yesterday from a guy who introduced himself as Ernie from Phoenix.  He said he had just arrived in Des Moines and was looking for people who wanted to do more than just talk.  He was all about Revolution.

 Sounded good to me, so I agreed to go to Ernie’s hotel and see what he had to say.   Turns out this Ernie is the Ernie who is a member of the Phoenix Revolution and the host of FreedomsPhoenix.com, a pretty cool website that I visit often.  Well, dang.  Ernie filled me in on his latest adventures, which were great to hear.

 He said that he had just come from South Carolina where Ron Paul had given a speech.  He told me about a group of youngsters (ages 11 – 18) who had wanted to do something, but hadn’t been encouraged by the adults around him.  So Ernie bought supplies and over the course of 2 or 3 days, they made 150 signs.    Then they went out and hung them on the fence next to the interstate.  One sign every 100 or 200 yards.  For miles.  Ernie showed me the youtube video he’s working on – trust me, it is an inspiring sight!   Of course, the highway guys came and took them down, but not until thousands of morning commuters got an eyeful of Ron Paul signage!

The kids were not to be deterred and made 70 more and put them out too!  Way to go!

Ernie’s mission is to motivate folks to get involved.  His prime way of doing this is through signage.   So, after we watched the video, we started making Ron Paul Revolution templates.  One of the locals, Jeremy, offered his shop as a sign making factory, and so we’ll get started this week.

Thanks, Ernie.  It was a pleasure to meet you.
