I Guess Someone Had to Top the Blimp

Behold: The Ron Paul Rocket. No...really...

The Ron Paul Revolution is producing a spaceship for the purpose of lifting a payload into space so the entire Universe may receive Ron Paul's message for as long as we can maintain electricity. This is a groundbreaking effort, as no grassroots support group for a politician has ever paid tribute in Outer Space!

The idea sprang about on the ronpaulforums.com as an effort to probe and expand the frontiers of our peaceful revolution. To reach this goal, we will utilize existing hobbyist technology, and push the edge. We will reach space!

One other purpose is to develop alternative propulsion systems using Carbonic Reaction Thrust Engines, powered by Diet Coke and Mentos. In this end, we ask both the Coca Cola Corp. and Mentos brand Breath Mints to sponsor both our early traditional propulsion efforts, and our experimental CRTE efforts.

It might be a joke, but then again, who knows? As rocket science, this approach is about as workable as the Paul supporters' approach to politics.

I dunno. The handmade black-on-white spraypainted campaign signs that someone nailed to telephone poles in the Houston area seemed to work pretty well.
