It was only a matter of time. Ron Paul's army of supporters/internet trolls have finally crawled out from underneath their Reddit pillow forts to take part in a mission greater than themselves that doesn't involve leaving vaguely threatening all-caps comments.
Commence Operation Grandma…
It's like 2008's The Great Schelp, in which comedian Sarah Silverman urged young liberals to talk to Bubbie about scary African Muslim Barack Obama, but much more annoying. Libertarian author Tom Woods wants Ron Paul fanatics to stop pestering celebrities on Twitter and start pestering their own grandparents to join the Ron Paul Revolution.
Sure, Paul's ultra-libertarian policies would destroy much of the social safety net that keeps elderly men and women out of poverty. But he's a doctor. Grandma always wanted you to be with a doctor.
