Jim, that's great!  Where do I send the money?  :)

A couple of us should start writing some Letters to the Editor (LTE) in preparation for a statewide shadow advertising LTE bomb!

What should we say in our LTEs?

Hey guys, this is great - I just saw the news on Drudge. I am 100% up for a donation, and will tell my other FSP friends as well.

Action list requested to facilitate donations:
1. Please publish details on FSP homepage about how donors can send money for this specific cause.
2. Please advertise FSP matching funds on FSP homepage.
3. Please maintain a counter on FSP homepage for money raised.
4. Please put up the actual advertisements to be used somewhere on the FSP website.

This is a golden opportunity, let us strike when the iron is hot! Thank you Mike, Doug, Jim and others for taking initiative on this so quickly - I hope the FSP swings into motion like a well-oiled machine for this one.  ;D Please advertise this opportunity to pitch in on the FSP homepage, for maximum impact.

Markowitz said the town has no legal standing to make this case.

“The towns exist at the pleasure of the Legislature,” she said. “The Legislature can refuse to take up the case, or say no, whatever it wants to do.”

The towns exist at the pleasure of the legislature?

What the hell kind of communist garbage is THAT???

Me, too.  Checkbook in one hand, VISA in the other.  Where do I send it?  (Geez, why doesn't anyone come to my door like that?  ;) )

In our LTEs we should be asking Markowitz to RESIGN her position because of her anti-freedom unconstitutional comment that towns exist "at the pleasure of the legislature."

That is NOT an acceptable thing to say in a free society!

SERIOUSLY, people.  This statement REALLY angers me as a Vermonter.  If we don't call for her resignation then I'll do it myself!  :)

There are two ways to donate to the Shadow Advertising Campaign.

Paypal- Go to http://freestateproject.org/getinvolved/donate.jsp and use option #3.
Since this is the second Shadow Ad, make the donation end in .02. If you are going to donate $20.00, please make it $20.02. This will help us keep it all straight. Then send an email to me (dhillman AT freestateproject DOT org) so that we can get the ball rolling.

Check- Please make the checks out to the Free State Project and note on the check that it’s for Shadow Advertisement #2. Send check donations to:
Free State Project
C/O Amanda Phillips
138 Ridgeview Dr.
Bridgewater, NH 03222
Again, please then send an email to me (dhillman AT freestateproject DOT org) so that we can get the ball rolling.

The iron is hot folks. Let’s strike.  ;)

Let’s take advantage of this opportunity. We’ll need people to do legwork and we’ll need donations to fund the ads.

I have $20 to donate ($10 referral and $10 bonus) from my ING Direct account. Please take a look at my request for referrals:
http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?board=4;action=display;threadid=4875

I'm trying to generate money for FSP ads just like this one, and am matching the next nine $10 referral bonuses that I receive. Together we can generate $875 plus $100 in matching money from me for FSP ads.

What are you going to say to him when you get him on the phone?

I wonder if we could use this as some sort of political strategy later on.  Statist towns can leave the state.  Free towns can join the state upon acceptance of our extensive limitations on government.  Sounds good to me!  :)

Who knows?  The VT legislature may let us have Killington if we cede 'em Concord. ;)

Let em have Claremont. Its right on the border, so we'd be doing them a favor...

Talked to the town managers secretary again. She says he has the message, but is still in meetings.

Ask him if he thinks we should ask for Markowitz' resignation.

The government works FOR the people.  Not the other way around!
