Ask your congressman to endorse Ron PaulSubmitted by cor2879 on Sat, 10/29/2011 - 11:40
So I was reading Daily Paul yesterday and saw some postings about a congressman in NC who recently endorsed Ron Paul, as well as an effort to get an endorsement from Jim Demint. Then I had this thought, we should all seek our respective congressman's endorsement for Dr. Paul. Will most of them refuse, certainly. Perhaps even all of them. But there is a chance, especially if, say, the 44,000 people who donated to Ron Paul all contacted their congressman and asked for this that we might get even one or two more. So here is the message that I sent to my congressman, Patrick McHenry:
Dear Congressman McHenry,
As an unaffiliated voter, I have supported you in your campaigns to run as our representative to the United States Congress, even issuing an official statement of support during your most recent run in 2010. I have done so because I believe that Washington needs principled individuals who hold a strong adherence to the United States Constitution. As I am sure you are well aware, we are at a critical juncture in our nation's history. Our national debt grows at an astronomical rate that is simply incomprehensible to most people. Our government spends 60% more money than it takes in. Clearly this is an unsustainable path that will lead our nation to a terrible place if we do not quickly and drastically change course. Only one presidential candidate has offered an economic plan that does this, and it is your colleague, Congressman Ron Paul. It is because of this that I am sending you this message, to ask for your official endorsement of Ron Paul as he seeks the highest office in the land. Ron Paul is the only candidate to have received a grade 'A' regarding the Constitutionality of his answers during the most recent Republican presidential debate from Vision Forum Ministries (http://adv.visionforum.com/email/2011/10/20_reportcard/repor...). I realize that this may be a huge career risk for you as Ron Paul is not the popular 'establishment' choice for the Republican nominee, however he is the only choice that will put us on a path to greater liberty, and undo the terrible damage that our addiction to spending has caused and will continue to cause if we do not change course. Ron Paul is up against a lot of opposition and needs principled people to stand behind him and sound the call to return to a form of government that is closer to what our founders envisioned. I ask now that you take this bold stand and give us a fighting chance of putting someone in the White House that will finally move this nation closer to what our founders envisioned. Thank you for your time and consideration.
