Ideas for RNC protesters

I think it would be great to get a few hundred thousand people out on the streets carrying signs that say... nothing.

A blank white paper sign says, I think, far more than any sort of protest message could.

  • It's emblematic of the lack of a coherent plan in our current semblance of government.
  • It represents curtailing of free speech rights.
  • It will leave TV viewers wondering if the signs have been edited out of broadcasts.
  • It will leave the protest up to the imagination of the viewer.
  • It's a hook to get people thinking.
  • No one can possibly complain about the content.
