Lawson for Congress: Let's Do This

BJ Lawson needs our help at this critical juncture (via email):

These are the last days of this election. Will you continue to help me?

The Washington power brokers pretend they have this in the bag. They say they can easily defeat me on Election Day and are "perfectly comfortable with their position."

So comfortable that they are scrambling to control our momentum.

My opponent, David Price, who describes himself as a "Progressive Democrat," is a dedicated servant of all the special interests who have given us the disasters of recent years, from unconstitutional wars to recession, from huge deficits to massive new welfare programs.

The man's 2nd largest campaign contributor is the Military Industrial Complex.

He voted to deregulate the banking industry.

His largest personal holding is in Exxon Mobil.

Does that sound like a 'Progressive Democrat'?

When I think of a Progressive Democrat I tend to think of someone like Dennis Kucinich, whom I admire for his adherence to the Constitution and respect for civil liberties. Mr. Kucinich challenges the establishment and Washington elite in defense of these principles.

David Price is no progressive.

People like David Price will do anything to gain and keep power. They represent everything that is wrong with DC.

If I am defeated on November 4th, it will be proclaimed by the media here in North Carolina to Washington DC that such "ridiculous and outmoded notions" as the personal liberty, limited government, free market, sound money, and a foreign policy of non-intervention are not a way to win an election.

I am determined not to let this happen. All that we believe in is far too important to the future of our country, and to everyone and everything we love, to let the Washington Establishment dance on its grave.

Please, help me stop the lies, the distortions, the pressure groups, the special interests that benefit from efforts such as the Wall Street Bailout, The Patriot Act, FISA, The War on Terror and The War on Drugs.

There is still time to run more advertisements, purchase more Constitutions and flyers, continue the fantastic phone banking, and get the vote out in the Fourth District.

Please help me go to Congress to fight for the people of my district, and for the ideas that can save our country from its unsustainable path.

Please give today at, as generously and as quickly as you can.

In liberty,
