HOW MANY OF YOU ARE GOING TO WASHINGTON?
me | July 24, 2009 | Hildy

Posted on 07/24/2009 8:45:24 PM PDT by Hildy

I want to know how many of us are going to get off our computers and actually do something that might make a difference. This march on Washington in two months is more important than anything you can do from now until the end of time. WE NEED TO SHOW UP IN NUMBERS THEY CANNOT IGNORE. Will you be there?

I have heard all the excuses..."I have a job" ...yea? TAKE TWO DAYS OFF. "I can't afford it"...DIG INTO YOUR SAVINGS or BORROW THE MONEY...This is a fight for the future of this Country. This isn't even a luxury any more.

I am literally BEGGING everyone to do whatever it takes to get their body to Washington, DC on September 12th.

If we can't get AT LEAST a million angry Americans to stand up to this reign of terror than we might as well give up...

WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN STOP THIS MADNESS.

If I were in the States I would be there if I had to hitch rides and sleep outside on a cardboard box for a couple of nights . Alas , I am in Japan . How are we going to inform the general public that this is going to take place ?

The leftists use people like Soros to fund their operations.

Well, I’m booking my Flight next week. After that I may have to work the the Maryland network of friends, former workers, to get a place to stay....or if next payday on Aug. 15th I can afford the “Freepers” hotel.....who knows.

As a former GOE moonbat counter demonstrator, veteran of 3 Eagle “events’ and having “marched” with Chris Hill and with Michelle Malkin and our veterans, and having walked the Halls for GOE in support of Gen. Petraeus in 2008, I look forward to the effort, the the wonderful conservative surround sound of my fellow patriots (plus the physical challenge of being on my feet all day). I’m expecting to be ‘noticed’ by someone in DC.
Meanwhile, I’m in PT for whatever else is needed. Don’t mess with Texas, or my Country....or I’m coming to your doorstep....
See ya, in DC on 9/12. Ya’ll be careful out thar, ya hear ?

Yes, we have our hotel reservations. our convention tickets and our airline tickets.

We are going a couple of days early so my 9 yo granddaughter can do some sightseeing. We will be arriving on the 7th and leaving on the 13th.

We are just waiting for September. ;^ )

Three from Seattle.

But September is not going to be nearly enough. Next year, we need to divide all of us up so we can have groups of people in D.C. and in capitols and major cities around the country week after week, shutting down vehicular traffic. There is absolutely no other way to get Congress’ attention. Should we have to go to this “extreme”? No. But how else can we take our country back?

My daughter and I are talking about going.

If the Freepers had a block of hotel rooms, and some kind of organization and program, times and places to meet and do things, I would commit to going and would make a deposit/donation right away.

Hi, I have sent Freepmails to Freepers in every state.

Everyone on FR should know about the events from 9/11-9/13 and about the Tea Party Express Caravan that JimRob and other patriots will be on from California to DC.

There have been also been several threads posted with announcements about our National Free Republic Convention, our Sheraton National Hotel group rate, and our Convention ticket and what the ticket includes.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2296897/posts?q=1&;page=124#124

I hope everyone makes every effort to join us in DC! Our Freeper Convention is going to be one you will not want to miss! See you in DC!

"Has anyone made up fliers that we could post at our local gathering places?" I bet you could write up a great one to put out in your area. All FReepers can help spread the word among family and friends too!

Tell them to join us in DC to defend our Constitution and make our voices heard. Ask them to sign on to FreeRepublic.com and read all about the giant of all Tea Parties and TaxPayer March on DC....along with the best National Freeper Convention ever! Give them this link for a taste of the great mucis we will enjoy at our Convention!

I am in a clinical trial at the National Cancer Institute. Adoptive Cell Transfer, a form of immunotherapy being researched for treatment of Stage 4 malignant melanoma. Right now it looks like my cells should be ready for infusion in late August / early September. First, a week of myeloablative chemo and whole body radiation are given, then the 45 +/- billion genetically engineered killer cells produced from a tumor removed from my lung in June are infused, followed by as many doses of Interleukin-2 at 8 hour intervals that the body can tolerate.
If I am in a condition which allows for a “pass” for several hours on that day, I will try to be there! Look for the bald guy who looks like he just got run over by a big truck! Dr Steven Rosenberg has given 38 years of his career working on a treatment breakthru for this disease. Now that significant durable results are starting to be seen in Phase 2 trials, it is NOT the time to curtail funding for this kind of research. I thank God that I have been a recipient of such cutting edge technology. I pray that many others will someday benefit.

Great! Our Convention is going to be loads of fun! Be sure to book your room and get your Convention ticket as soon as you can. See you there!

Sorry my links above did not come through as active ones and you had to copy and paste them. Just don't know why that happens to some links I copy and paste, and not to others. Maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. I am still learning and not very computer savvy, of sure! :)

God bless you! You are in my prayers and will continue to be.

We all hope that you will be able to join us in DC, but your health comes first. Be sure to follow doctors orders as we will know you will be with us in spirit like others who are not going to be able to come for various reasons.

We are working on getting a live stream set up so folks will be able to watch some of the Convention action on FR. Hoping that works out for the Freepers who will be unable to join us. I am also sure Freepers will be posting from DC while the Convention is in progress.

Take care. Your Freeper friend Jean St. Pete, FL

I am flying in from Colorado for the FR Convention and the Tea Party...and of course the Walter Reed “Support The Troops” event with the DC FReepers.
I’m finalizing plans this week!

I shook hands with Billy Dale at the March for Justice, back when I was still lurking. It happened to be relatively convenient for us.
