Campaign for Liberty on BJ Lawson

Michael Nystrom from Daily Paul fame has a great writeup on BJ Lawson and his June 29 moneybomb on Campaign for Liberty:

The nationwide awareness that Ron Paul sparked with his presidential campaign is only growing stronger. Case in point is BJ Lawson, a Ron Paul Republican running for Congress in North Carolina’s 4th District.

Dr. Paul served as a powerful example for how citizens everywhere can make an impact by simply standing up for Liberty. BJ Lawson is doing the same thing in his congressional race. Check out this video, in which Lawson confronts his Democratic congressional opponent at a local meeting with a very simple question: “Did you read the Patriot Act before voting?”

It takes courage to stand up and hold our representatives accountable, but there is really nothing to be afraid of. After all, they are our representatives, and they work for us. At least that’s how it is supposed to be. They are not somehow “above” us. Any one of us can and should do the same thing. As representatives of Liberty, we are all responsible for holding our government accountable. Just remember, as Dr. Paul has shown by example, to always show the utmost respect to your fellow citizens.

We need more more congressional representatives like Dr. Paul and BJ Lawson who share our views. Mr. Lawson will be having a money bomb Sunday June 29th to raise funds for his very important campaign. BJ Lawson won his Republican primary by a landslide, and will compete in the general election against incumbent Democrat David Price who has been in Congress for over 20 years. (How about working the ‘change’ meme in this election against the Democrats themselves?) Come November, let’s show the nation that Dr. Paul’s message of Liberty has real staying power, and that the Campaign for Liberty will be a true force to be reckoned with in American politics. Let’s help North Carolina elect BJ Lawson to Congress!

BJ Lawson has been officially endorsed by Ron Paul. Learn more about Mr. Lawson, at his website, and please make a donation to his campaign this Sunday!

Pledge to make your donation here. At this point, we have 105 pledges (I should be 106). Stay tuned for further updates.
