Posted on 05/08/2012 2:31:25 PM PDT by Da Bilge Troll
We may not have agreed on who the Republican presidential candidate should be. We may not share precisely the same social views. We DO agree on the Constitutional principles of smaller government, a balanced budget, lower taxes and less federal interference in our lives. We the People are coming and we want our power back! Its Common Sense. So, please join us for this day-long family style event Rally for Common Sense on Saturday, May 19th, at the private farm The Patriot Field of Dreams, in Holts Summit, Missouri. Gates will open at 10:00am central, with two stages, nationally recognized speakers, top entertainers, patriot vendors, exhibitors and fun activities for the entire family. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, sun shades and Frisbees, for the most unique rally ever. Remember your camera, too! We will be setting up a Shutterfly account for folks to upload their personal photos and share their experience with patriots worldwide!
But even if you forget your camera, documentarian Alex Rife will be recording the event, along with professional photographers, Robert Brenner and Sasha Borisov. What to Expect:
Guest speakers and entertainers include: Herman Cain, Alan Keyes, Dr. Gina Loudon, Zo Rachel, Reverend C.L.Bryant, Mark Block, Alfonzo Rachel, Dee Rock, William Temple, Dave Roland, Stacy Swimp, Darin Chappell, Michelle Moore, Joseph Farah (CEO of WND), Selena Owens, and Stacy E. Washington.
Our Partners include: The National Rifle Association, The Media Research Center, Smart Girl Politics Action, The Conservative Woman Tour, Jamie Allman and FM News Talk 97.1 (St. Louis, MO), Nick Reed and 104.1 KSGF (Springfield, MO), Gary Nolan and Eagle 93.9 (Columbia, MO), and Handy Jon. You never know who youre going to run into at the Rally for Common Sense. One minute you might hear Fourscore and seven years ago by Abraham Lincoln and then you round the corner and get to meet Frederick Douglass for the first time. Maybe even see Ben Franklin fly his famous kite. (Bring your OWN kite.) Who knows?
Between our featured speakers there will be mini-seminars on the Arena Ideas Stage, covering topics such as the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, nullification and other Constitutional issues. Occupying Common Sense will take on new meaning. The Bottom Line:
All tickets are sold on-line. We will not be selling them at the event. We will even be having a Chicken Dinner! Also, there are rural sites for camping whether via your tent or RV from noon on Friday, the 18th, to noon on Sunday, the 20th. Bonus for campers: There will be evening activities and a Sunday morning outdoor church service (non-denominational). Prices are as follows: $10 for Rally (kids under 16 are free) $7 for Chicken Dinner (kids under 6 eat free) $10 Tent Pass $20 RV Pass Funds collected above and beyond our direct expenses will be distributed (via grants) to like-minded civic organizations. See Donations page for more information. One more thing: Looking for a non-profit fundraiser? Want to be part of Campaign Village? Click here. We also welcome volunteers, from your home and/or on-site. About Us
Rally for Common Sense has been organized by unpaid volunteers, however, there are significant direct costs. Its a careful balancing act between creating an event of this magnitude and at the same time, ensuring we keep the Rally affordable for everyone. Rally for Common Sense is entirely self-funded; our only revenue stream is ticket sales, booth rental, and individual donations.
Listen to Kim Paris, one of the founders of the Rally, here.

I’m from Nebraska and I’ll be there. Some of the local 9/12 groups from Omaha will be going!!!!
I’m hoping that Sarah Steelman will make a visit.
I can’t help thinking about the crowd they would have if they had Sarah speaking.
Awesome! Have you checked the webpage lately? The speaker's list keeps getting better!
Also, Rush Limbaugh has donated a PALLET of 2-If-By-Tea to be sold as a fundraiser!
See you there! (I'll be the one wearing a patriotic t-shirt!) hehe
