Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul say they brought their "shock and awe" sign campaign to Chattanooga Cleveland area roads over the weekend.
Lauren Walker of the Paul campaign said, "You have probably noticed “Ron Paul Revolution” and “Ron Paul 2008” signs and banners everywhere.
"In the wee hours of the night and early morning on Friday and Saturday, bands of Ron Paul supporters were roving the streets of Hamilton County hanging banners and signs in a concerted effort to let people know about their candidate, Ron Paul.
"These young, inspired, patriotic Ron Paul supporters call this event 'Paint the Town Ron,' claiming a media blackout on Republican Ron Paul has forced them to use 'shock and awe' techniques like these.
Chris Holley, is founder of www.PaintTheTownRon.com and organizer of the thousands of “Paulites” taking part in the national grassroots event in over 80 cities across the U.S. He said, “It’s the only way the public will find out about the man people are calling ‘Modern-Day Founding Father.’”
He said after the May 5 Republican Debate, Ron Paul became the most “Googled” and most “Yahooed” (search engines) person for two months, May and June, 2007. And he said he is the most “YouTubed” presidential candidate of all time. Mr. Holley said, "He’s winning all the internet and call-in debate polls. People listen to the debates and tell us he’s the only candidate that makes sense. What he says is American and wholesome. And America is waking up to the opportunity to vote for a 'Founding Father' candidate after years of having a choice of the lesser of two evils."
