Open Letter to James DobsonSubmitted by mpberry on Fri, 10/05/2007 - 17:20
You may or may not have heard of James Dobson. For those that don't he is the founder and head of a group called Focus on the Family. He has gained a tremendous leadership position among the Christian right over the years. In recent days he has come out saying that if Guliani becomes the GOP nominee he will urge his supporters to back a 3rd party candidate for president. Never does he mention Ron Paul at all - for good or for bad.
We need to make sure that Dr. Dobson knows that Ron Paul has support and is someone who Christians can vote for without compromising their beliefs. Also that Ron Paul can beat the democrats next year.
I am crafting my own letter to Dr. Dobson as I would recommend that people should do. I found this open letter online that looks well written to me also that people can sign and put their comments to Dr. Dobson online. The following is the link to the letter.

One can't underestimate the sway that this one person has in the Christian world. Also his followers vote and most are already registered republican so the changes in the primary rules don't affect them if we can convert them in time for the primaries.
