It’s not just a day for a BBQ with your friends. It’s a day to remember and thank those who gave their fellow U.S. citizens the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms which we enjoy today.
I’d ask that you please honor their memory by fully familiarizing yourself with the candidates running for President in 2008. Not based on mainstream media or historical political dogma, but instead based on your own independent study of the issues of our times so that you may make an informed decision and participate in our Republic. Think for yourself, then discuss with your neighbors. It is what I’m doing as an undecided voter. It is my opinion that this is the best way you can honor these fallen soldiers which will hopefully ensure a bright future for our country. Thank you.

1 thought on “Happy Memorial Day 2007”
“Cynicism and defeatism are NOT options to be entertained.
We are in the eleventh hour of losing this Nation…”
Consider the only Conservative Presidential Candidate…
Hello and Welcome my name is: Joel Lemieux I am retired and currently live in the beautiful mountains of Western, NC… I have been an avid supporter of Dr Ron Paul… “We have to get Ron Paul elected, firstly and foremost, in the primaries”… Then on to the Presidency!!!
However, if this is to come about (Ron Paul 2008) we will require a war chest… We are attempting to get (1) one Million people to send Ron Paul only $7.00 each per Month… Thanks… Joel… email@example.com
Meanwhile Consider The Following:
Our Only Choice!!! Leadership 2008
Can Ron Paul Win? On The Issues – A Resounding YES!
Knowing this let us then look at the most important benefit… that Ron Paul brings to the Presidency…
Leadership is Action Through *Example Not Position…
(It is not a position of power nor being in the right place at the right time, neither define leadership).
It is defined by setting the example through taking action on such Leadership Traits as Truthfulness! Honesty! Fidelity!
Ron Paul Has Acted Admirably On All These Leadership Traits:
“Truthfulness” first and foremost… Then: Principle, Integrity, Honesty,* Fidelity (to their oaths), Honor, Virtue, Compassion, Courage, Vision, Wisdom and Faith.
DARE TO COMPARE
Can anyone bring forth any other candidate (GOP or DEM, etc.) that can lay claim to all of these characteristics?
I believe we are all hard pressed to do so… “Strike That”. I “KNOW” we ARE hard pressed!
Check out this site it may give you some promo assistance… It has a promo area where everything can be printed out for free… It also has “send to friends” area for e-mailing… Hope this helps you …
Get the word out “SHARE” with your friends… And don’t forget the $7 per Month “we all can afford that” remember each of us do not need to get thousands of people… just set a weekly goal and have any/all of your friends duplicate your efforts… It will be persistence and perseverance that will elect Ron Paul…
PS: Start with flyers at the Universities put one on each and every bulletin board on campus also look for support from the student GOP… Then have them go to other campus’s… Also, don’t forget High School Seniors – by the time elections roll around they will be old enough to vote! Good Luck… And may our efforts be blessed…
