No, I’m not kidding. This is for real, at least in the virtual world. Read this and get blown away.
A group of Ron Paul supporters are using forums and a simple Web site to organize a march in the World of Warcraft computer game in support of the Republican presidential hopeful. Azeroth is a kingdom in the mythical world of the massively multiplayer online game made by Blizzard Entertainment in Irvine. [...]The rally will be led… by a group of players (a “guild”) named “RP Revolution”. Organizers used an online discussion board at ronpaulforums.com Wednesday to spread the message. Two days later they built a Web page for the rally on revolutioni.st, a site that claims to support Ron Paul’s beliefs, but that is careful to disclose that the candidate “does not necessarily support all the beliefs” on the site.
Again, I’m not kidding. Ron Paul fans really are staging a “rally” inside an online game. What do you think about this?
Are the folks in Ron Paul’s online fan club taking their “advocacy” to absurd levels by campaigning inside an online video game? Or is this the beginning of a new kind of campaigning, a campaigning that really knows no boundaries? If you were a libertarian that likes Ron Paul, would you participate in this “rally” in World of Warcraft?
I want to hear what you have to say. Is this crazy? Or are Ron Paul’s online campaigners onto something?
Go ahead. Make my day. Fire away!
