Yesterday, I went down to my State Capitol for a rally. Its around 5 hours down there. I gathered 3 good OAS guys, got in the car and took off. We were going to meet a rally on the Capitol grounds. The rally had a couple of people pitching their run for this or that political office. Heard a speech or 2 about why to vote for this guy or that guy. Bored to tears to be honest. I knew, at my core, the election will not change anything. We have to fix this a different way. There were around 350-400 there. Not a huge crowd, but it was a gun rally. An Open Carry Rally. For you guys in the rest of the Nation, that means we all had Long Rifles strapped to our backs screaming "We will not be disarmed!" We walk down Constitution Ave for about an hour and wave and smile and kiss babies. Its a fun time. Yeah I know, dang Texans are crazy.
Anyway, as we mill around the capitol, I'm talking to EVERYONE!! Have you heard about American Spring? Have you heard about American Spring? Here is my card, Go to the website..... I swear, I was working that crowd for 3 hours harder than any political hopeful. I carry a couple of cheep printed business cards with with me, Just name phone number, website, Facebook. Then I have a really nasty looking flyer that has the whole plan in it. Then I have a still picture of Cairo during their actions last fall. I show that still, ask them "Would this Scare DC and wake our Nation up?" Join us in DC, we need you. May 16th. Martin Luther King said "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in Moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy" If now is not a time of challenge and controversy, such a time has never existed.
Over and over through the crowd, till I was getting on peoples nerves I think... Came up to one guy I had already given my pitch to, he said, "Yes, Its Time to walk like and Egyptian" Did the little dance and all. It struck me, stuck me and I loved it. Granted the guy looked pretty funny doing that dance with an AK47 strapped to his back, but.... Yeah, Walk Like an Egyptian. Thats our catch phrase. Thought I would toss that out there to everyone. It has gotten good responses down here. What do you think? I know, its cheesy as hell but, damn, rest of the day I used it, people laughed and smiled. I even started doing the dance every once in a while.
Try it, test the response. It works. Walk like an Egyptian, do the dance, use the voice. It works!
