**The number of pink slips sent now totals more than 3 million!!**

 

There is a massive grass-roots effort in the works to get Congress’ attention.

From World Net Daily:

“WND announced the “Send Congress a Pink Slip” campaign yesterday and it has already reached one-tenth of its stated goal of 5 million notices, individually addressed, personalized with senders name and address and delivered to all members of Congress by Fed Ex. Already, half a million of the “pink slips” are on their way to Washington.

“This looks like a historic effort – comparable to the massive march in Washington, the tea party rallies and the town hall actions,” said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND. “I’m quite sure nothing like this has ever before been undertaken.”

The pink slips are being delivered to all 535 members of Congress by FedEx informing them that they work for the taxpayers. There are 4 issues listed as unacceptable:

  • government health care
  • cap and trade
  • “hate” crimes
  • any more spending

FedEx ensures that these will be delivered directly to the recipients. This effort puts Congress on notice that if they vote for any of these 4 issues, they will be voted out in the next election.

There will be a candidates’ forum  in Petersburg, Illinois on Sept 26th. It will be at the Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site. There is an outdoor Theater in the Park there. Candidates will have the stage to themselves for 40 minutes. For the first 10 minutes they can speak. For the next 30 minutes we can ask them questions on their positions, intents, and accomplishments.
A large turnout will send the most powerful message, that we are united and strong, and will select our own candidates, not allow the parties to pick for us. Come with questions and bring your friends.
The candidates will begin at 10:00 A.M. and the last will end at 2:40 P.M. There is a sandwich shop on the site.  Event will be cancelled in the event of rain.

Here is the list of candidates expected to be there:
