I'm posting this again here because I really need some help.

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://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=185165 (I think many of you know that I am a C4L Precinct Leader and Washington County coordinator here in VT.

You should definitely go-- especially if you're serious about the Senate. You may never see so many people focused on these problems in one place again (though I'd like to think this is just the beginning). It is imperative that we be there with the right message.

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!
