Republican voters and liberty lovers, how do you feel about these accomplishments of the Campaign for Liberty?
July 24, 2009 Dear Friend of Liberty, After Ron Paul's presidential campaign ended, the political establishment was sure our grassroots Revolution would fade away and eventually be considered nothing more than a “flash in the pan.” Much to their frustration, Campaign for Liberty formed in June 2008 to carry on the fight for limited, constitutional government and the restoration of the Founders' vision. In just a little over a year, C4L has grown to include nearly 200,000 members from the U.S. and all over the world. Together, we've made the Federal Reserve a mainstream issue of debate for the first time in a century, and, in the House of Representatives, have brought the entire Republican Party and nearly 100 Democrats onto Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill. Our momentum in the Senate is quickly growing as more cosponsors sign up in support of our historic effort to bring transparency and accountability to D.C.'s most secretive institution. None of our success on the national level would be possible without the hard work and long hours put in by so many liberty-minded activists across America. C4L members in every state are working for true, lasting change, and are having tremendous success in fighting to restore our liberties. Here are just a few of the many excellent reports we've seen from members across the country: Minnesota: Interim State Coordinator Marianne Stebbins reports that success during Ron Paul's presidential campaign has carried over to current activism. According to Marianne, “In 2008, liberty forces were successful in electing seven National Delegates and six National Alternates to the RNC. This came on the heels of the election of nearly 1,500 state delegates and alternates. Because we had so many delegates and alternates in the system from 2008 and because many of them stayed active in party politics, liberty forces in MN also enjoyed success in party leadership elections in 2009.” Victories in Minnesota include electing liberty-minded activists to three Congressional District Chairs, in addition to another friendly Chair in a fourth district, out of eight congressional districts. Several members have also been elected to the State Executive Committee. Across Minnesota, victories include electing supporters to state central committees, senate district and county leadership, and putting liberty-minded activists in place as Vice Chairs, Treasurers, Deputy Chairs, and several local party Chairs. Supporters are also now in charge of the Minneapolis Republican City Committee, and are working to elect like-minded people to the mayor's office and city council. Marianne finishes her report by noting, “We continually hear stories about our freedom fighters who are already running for office in 2010, primarily for State Senate or House.” Great job, Minnesota! (I'm also pleased to add that Minnesota C4L has been successful in getting five out of Minnesota's eight representatives to cosponsor Audit the Fed!) Florida: On August 7-9, Florida C4L will gather at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, FL for their Florida Liberty Summit featuring Dr. Paul and Tom Woods. Orange County members have set a goal to have 200 Local Coordinators in Florida by the time of the Summit. To reach this goal, Orange County C4L activists have been contacting members to address any concerns about becoming an LC and to talk about the necessity of the Local Coordinator program. In less than two weeks, they recruited 29 new LC's! Florida's Local Coordinator count is currently at 159 (leading all other states!), and I'm confident our Florida members can achieve their goal in time for the Summit. Illinois: Illinois C4L has recently seen a phenomenal increase in their membership! Co-Interim State Coordinator Heather Danielowski notes on her blog that in a two week period in early July, “our total membership has grown by 579, 38 new user accounts have been created, and 3 members have agreed to work as local coordinators. This brings our total numbers to 6,356 members, 1,343 members with user accounts, and 95 local coordinators.” Since this report was written on July 15, Illinois' numbers have gone up even more! The latest numbers on the Illinois C4L state page lists 6,531 members, 1,390 web accounts, and 96 Local Coordinators. Illinois C4L members have also been busy spreading the word about Audit the Fed. The Central Illinois C4L has collected over 1,500 petitions urging Senator Dick Durbin to cosponsor S 604, the Senate companion to Ron Paul's HR 1207. If you live in Illinois, the first-ever Illinois C4L state-wide barbeque will take place on July 25 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. Click here for more information. California: In our last email updating you on state successes, we recounted the story of Ron Paul supporters in Alameda County who were successful in gaining 16 out of 30 seats on the Alameda County GOP Central Committee. Their hard work to gain support for Audit the F I'm from Minnesota, so I love that it mentions my state right off the bat.
