I think many of you know that I am a C4L Precinct Leader and Washington County coordinator here in VT. When I heard about the Tea Parties going on all over the place I decided that we needed one in the State Capitol. I also decided that this would be a golden opportunity for us to promote it as a VT Campaign For Liberty event. I've been on a few radio shows with a few more coming up before the Tea Party and a local radio station has made a fantastic commercial (http://vtcampaignforliberty.com/WindsorCounty/taxprotest.mp3)that will be airing 8-12 times a day until the event.

I have lined up 5 speakers for the Tea Party. Topics of discussion include Vermont's loss of liberty, the predatory Federal Reserve, a citizen's guide to opposing the bailouts by utilizing local credit unions as primary financial institutions, the current state of Vermont's unsustainable economy and the need for 10th amendment legislation in the state.

There is more information about the Montpelier Tea Party here: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=185165

The VT C4L does not have an operational budget yet and I am a stay at home mom so I have a lot of time but not a lot of money. I REALLY want to use this opportunity to spread the message about the Campaign For Liberty, HR 1207 and the We the People Act. If I can get enough money I will print out as many of the different C4L produced materials to hand out.

Please consider making a small donation-- even just $1 to the chip-in I've set up to help with the costs of printing these materials :) http://vtc4lteaparty.chipin.com/campaign-for-liberty-outreach-at-the-montpelier-tax-day-tea-party (http://vtc4lteaparty.chipin.com/campaign-for-liberty-outreach-at-the-montpelier-tax-day-tea-party)

Do you have any printing contacts? We get 100 bumper sticker printed for only $30
so we only have to sell 30 to breakeven.
We usually run out but the we have made enough to print more.
Just be sure to keep records and stay within the rules of your state.
since these are non partisan events, they should not fall under McCain Fiengold, but chect to be sure.
We recycle old signs by turning them over and hand printing or posting materials on them for other events.
Do you know anyone with a businness printer, who if you bring the paper will let you pay their cost only, thats like $3.50 for 500 sheets of paper (if you have Big Lotts) and 2 cents a sheet to print.
the cheapest cost anywhere I've seen is 69 cents a sticker.
I hope this helps.

I hope this helps.Great ideas! I really haven't been thinking about stickers because they're expensive. Primarily what I want to do is just hand out Campaign For Liberty specific materials to get people to support the efforts and join us. I don't need a ton of money. Seriously, even just $20 would be a huge help to me.

Maybe a thread in General Politics will be seen by more people?

Maybe a thread in General Politics will be seen by more people?I already posted this twice. I don't want to be a pest.

I guess there are people who just look in particular forums but I'm a "new posts" gal myself. That way I see what everyone's talking about.

Please, folks? I feel like a panhandler already, but a $1 or $2 from a few more people would really help.

Ok, the ticker is working now. Please consider chipping in a few bucks to help spread the word about the Campaign For Liberty at the Montpelier Tea Party!

UPDATE: This is a copy of a message I sent to the VTC4L group:


Ok, so as it stands there is $127.68 in the paypal account for the chip in. I am placing an order right now for 400 "Join the Revolution" brochures, 400 "Sound Money" Slim Jims and 400 "Individual Liberty" Slim Jims for a total of $128.25 including shipping. There is a pledge on the board and an uncleared e-check for a total of $45 and an unspecified amount coming from [a fellow VT C4Ler] which is more than enough to pay for b&w copies of the other materials that I mentioned. I'm talking to [a fellow VT C4Ler] to see what we can do about color copies for those materials and possibly printing up "Audit the Fed" slim jims.

I'm going to call this fundraiser a success! Thanks everyone for helping out. I have never been so excited for tax day to come in my life!

I just kicked in a bit... wish it could have been more. If it's too late to help with the Tea Party, just put it toward the next event.

LittleLightShining, thanks so much for getting out there and taking a stand! You're an inspiration! I hope you'll post here and let us know how things go!

I was on the radio this morning, had a newspaper interview yesterday which should be in the paper no later than Monday. I have a radio interview on Saturday, 2 more radio interviews on Monday morning and I'm almost 100% sure we'll have at least one VT tv station at the Tea Party.
