Being this event is public March 25, may I ask for front page?

Exposure is what we have been fighting for. Now that the opportunity is there, can the DailyPaul indulge?

The only thing that bothers me

about the ACLU is they selectively support the constitution. For example, they are anti-2nd amendment.

Also, ACLU may bring some democrats on board.

Why isn't this being voted UP?!

Recall in the Dr Carson speach, he said the problem with government was it's got too many attorneys? Our new Vice Chair is a ACLU attorney. To me, I feel the GOP is under controlled demolition, because TPTB want ONE PARTY, so wedges are being driven that cuts to the very heart of people, who grew up in the GOP and have a real affection for the IDEA of values. They feel betrayed, and KNOW they are being betrayed, and the media is not writing about the betrayals, though it will happen, and when it does, the GOP will be in the buried.. controlled demolition. It's not an accident.

I heard Ron Paul say, "If you want to keep your republic, you need to get involved".. and he was talking about getting into the GOP.. and what did I find.. 2 people.. 22 empty seats.. and I feel like I have this amazing front row seat to the implosion...

I say this because I saw the implosion of my State's Grange.. I was so lucky to participate in a Democratic process, and learn RROO, and how to write resolutions, come to realize the American culture before the FRB operated, and this group came in and felt they had a better way.. and their better way is corruption to the point, all those wonderful gifts the Grange gave to people, is gone. It's like these folks came in having no idea what was actually there, and destroyed it, replacing it with a place to vent and get nothing done.

Excellent points. I have no rebuttal. There ARE too many attorneys. We DO need to be involved.

Since the event is happening anyway, I hope that Justin will be well received and listened to. I believe in my heart that Justin is reaching out the way that Ron Paul is doing, and suggests.

There are few people and few venues discussing things of this nature. The American people MUST know.

Justin Amash will be in attendance.

I believe that he will represent us well.
