Here are some thoughts to kick-start your brainstorming session:

  • Shakespeare said "Brevity is the soul of wit." Please be as brief as possible. The more readable from a distance the signs are, the better. 
  • Recent polling shows that the number one campaign issue for conservatives surrounds "anti-establishment" sentiment. We are the anti-establishment choice.
  • Regardless of who is elected president, do you really think the next president will reduce the size, scope and jurisdiction of the Federal Government?
  • We are mortgaging our children's future with our wasteful spending.
  • We are the only solution as big as the problem.
