The Pro-Bush, “Support The Troops” Rally
William Greene / RightMarch.com
What did you do yesterday? I wrote checks.
First, I wrote a check for $7,500.00. That covers rental, delivery, set up, load out and operation of a sound system to cover at least 20,000 people at this weekend’s “Support The Troops AND Their Mission” Rally.
Then I wrote a check for $427.08, to cover our portion of the fee for holding a press conference at the National Press Club last week, announcing our plans to hold this four-day pro-troops series of rallies and counter-protests against Cindy Sheehan, MoveOn.org, and their far-left cohorts coming to Washington, DC to “protest”.
Next, I wrote a check for $5,414.93. That one was for the stage company, to erect a stage large enough to hold a band, a dozen military families, Iraq war veterans, Congressmen, UK politicians, and loudmouths like me for hours on end.
After that, I wrote a check for $1050.00, for six hours on-site coverage of an ambulance service. Yes, this is *required* by the Park Police for a rally as big as the one we’re putting on for the troops.
Finally, I finished off my day by writing a check for $2033.00… for porta-potties. I never knew it cost so much for a couple dozen “johns”, but I’m sure willing to pay someone else to pick them up after it’s all over.
That was my day. Over sixteen THOUSAND dollars paid out, all for our “Support The Troops AND Their Mission” weekend.
$16,425.01 in just ONE DAY. We’ve already paid several thousand dollars for transportation, lodging, etc. And there’s more bills on the way, totaling MANY thousands more dollars.
I think it’s worth every penny, to show the Left, the Media, and the rest of America that the “silent majority” DOES support our brave men and women in uniform. They’re willing to risk it all for us.
What are we willing to do for them?
TAKE ACTION: I’ll be honest with you — these events have drained our bank account. We don’t have a “sugar daddy” like the Left does, with billionaire socialist George Soros. We need your help NOW.
I need you to make a donation right away, to help us cover these costs. Whether it’s $10 or $10,000 ….
This is a BIG weekend coming up.
On Friday evening, we’ll be taking part in a pro-troops counter-demonstration at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where the forces of the Left will be gathering in a disgusting display of shameful rhetoric, right in the faces of our brave troops that have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. WE will be there to THANK them for their service!
On Saturday, the day that the radical left-wing groups intend to “surround the White House” to demand President Bush’s removal, our “Defend the White House” rally begins at 10:00am at the Navy Memorial; our coalition also has a permit for a large area along the parade route to counter the main “anti-war” parade as they pass by.
On Sunday, we’ve got our HUGE pro-troops rally on the Capitol Mall! This promises to be a well-attended, heavily-covered rally featuring active duty service-men and -women and their families, as well as the families of those killed in action.
Speakers will include Gold Star parents, family members of service men and women, veterans, government officials from the US Congress and the Coalition of the Willing, and Iraqi citizens… as well as an appearance by the staunchly patriotic musical duo The Right Brothers.
Finally, on Monday, we’ll be joining with military families to lobby congress to “stay the course” of our military missions overseas. The antiwar groups will be lobbying Congress that day — we’ll be there to counter their shrill voices.
More information on all the activities will be announced at each day’s rallies and on our website at http://www.rightmarch.com/weekend.htm — click through for rally details, directions, maps, lodging, transportation, and more!
We MUST NOT let the Left’s “anti-war” weekend go unchallenged. The mainstream media would like nothing better than to give our side — the side of the majority of Americans — little or no coverage. So we MUST make sure our pro-troops rally is a HUGE event, so they CAN’T ignore us!
We need you. We need your physical presence… we need your prayers…
And if you can’t come that weekend, WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! The Sunday rally — and the events around it, including counter-protests on Friday and Saturday, and Congressional lobbying on Monday — is costing us literally TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
Please make your best contribution TODAY – this pro-America rally is happening quickly and we need every person reading this to rise up on behalf of our troops. Their cause is just – and they deserve our thanks.
If you’ve already given, I’m asking you to make a sacrifice, and give again if you can.
If you haven’t given yet, THIS IS THE TIME. We need your help RIGHT NOW.
PLEASE, come to D.C. on September 25th if you can — and please, give your best donation today to make this an event that NO ONE will be able to forget.
Please click through below to make your best donation TODAY, to show these radical leftists — and the rest of America — that we’re FED UP with their hate-filled nonsense, and that the MAJORITY of this country SUPPORTS our President and our troops:
