Dear Friend of Liberty,
It is time to hold the politicians accountable!
As you well know, the unconstitutional “bailout” of failed lenders that became law earlier this month has, as Dr. Paul predicted, thrown the economy into even more turmoil.
As Dr. Paul said, the free market did not cause this problem and only the free market can fix it.
But even as I write this, Big Government insiders from both parties are frantically working to design even worse legislation for the next Congress.
This legislation may even be presented in the upcoming lame duck session of Congress to take place after the November elections.
They just don’t get it!
And unless you and I, and tens of thousands of other Liberty-minded Americans act now, they will continue us down the road of socialism.
That’s why I am asking for your help right away.
Will you make a special contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, or $25 today by contributing at https://www. campaignforliberty. com/donate. php ?
You see, your Campaign for Liberty staff is putting the finishing touches on a hard-hitting program to take place over the next 15 days in key districts and states letting concerned Americans know just how their representatives voted on the bailout.
The goal of this effort is two-fold.
First, we want to make sure as many people as possible in key states and districts know whether or not their Congressmen and Senators stood with the Constitution and voted against the bailout, or sold out the American people for this socialist power grab.
Second, we want to let those Congressmen and Senators who voted for the bailout know that the American people have taken notice.
And we want to let ALL the candidates know that this is a defining issue both now and in the future.
We plan to go into as many districts and states as possible, like North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District, where incumbent David Price (D) voted for the bailout and is being challenged by strong bailout opponent B.J. Lawson.
To do this, Campaign for Liberty plans to:
Produce and distribute slim jims specifically tailored to districts/states that tell how each Congressman and Senator voted. These will be available soon on the Campaign for Liberty web site for every district and state in the country.
And we will also print and distribute these pieces in as many of the key districts as funds allow.
Send a series of email blasts into many key districts and states, urging our members and supporters to contact the candidates and demand they oppose any further “bailo
Run hard-hitting newspaper ads in as many places as funds allow.
Run radio ads and hold news conferences announcing the votes cast on the bailout.
Flood key districts with tens of thousands of phone calls letting people know where their Congressmen and Senators stood on this very important issue.
Of course, carrying out this plan will cost money. That is why your Campaign for Liberty must raise $325,000 in the next few days.
I hope you will make a special contribution today of $500, $250, $100, $50, or $25 right away.
As you know, this bailout—which its supporters tried to rename a “rescue package” in order to make it more palatable to Americans—allows the federal government to “purchase” (with fiat and borrowed money) $700 billion in bad mortgage-related assets, putting the taxpayer on the hook for the mistakes of the Federal Reserve, Congress, and Wall Street.
Despite the rhetoric used by the bill’s proponents, this bailout will only prolong and worsen the economic consequences we must endure while the market purges itself of these bad assets.
And though this bailout passed, the battle is not over.
Matter of fact, the fight has intensified, as the Treasury Secretary is now using the powers granted under the bailout to “inject capital” into our nation’s banks—essentially nationalizing them.
To get the message out to hundreds of thousands of Americans in the next 15 days so they can hold their politicians accountable, Campaign for Liberty must raise $325,000.
For this effort to have the intended effect, we will need sufficient funding. As one of my mentors has always said, “You can’t save the world, if you can’
t pay the rent.”
That’s why I hope you will agree to a special contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, or $25 to help out in this important fight by going to https://www. campaignforliberty. com/donate. php
All of the funds raised in the next week will go toward this effort to make those responsible—regardless of party or position—pay a price with the American people for their abuse of government, tax revenue, and our nation’s future.
With your support, I want to keep up the fight and expand it to more and more Americans—launching a tidal wave of phone calls, emails, and faxes to the politicians of both parties, letting them know we will accept NO more bailouts and will remember their votes.
Thanks for all you have done, and I ask for your crucial continued support of Campaign for Liberty and the cause of Freedom.

P.S. Time is very short. There is one time politicians may listen to the people – right before the election.
If at all possible, please make that special contribution at https://www. campaignforliberty. com/donate. php so we can contact tens of thousands of Americans over the next few days.
