Blog: News about The March and Rally on July 12, 2008 in Washington, DC  
StarsButterflies

   Get Ready for The March and Rally!

   Here is some information for those who are planning to attend the March and Rally Event in Washington, DC on July 12th, 2008. 


    
March and Rally Details

Permits have been secured to begin The March on the North lawn of the Washington monument. This is the OFFICIAL GATHERING LOCATION for the "Revolution March".

Where: North East Lawn,  (Washington Monument)
       Washington, D.C.


When:  
 July 12th, 2008, 9:30AM


Route:   Constitution Avenue. (see map at  
http://revolutionmarch.com)


This event is being promoted as a family event. Those who are attending will gather to March at the Northeast Quadrant of the Washington Monument and marching down Constitution Avenue toward the rallying point at the West Side of Capitol Hill.


A fun idea is to have people dressed Colonial style, and also dressed as our Founding Fathers, to lead the march. There is the plan to wave posters of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, along with various other related banners and signs. 


             Schedule

9:30 AM     Assemble on the North Lawn of the Washington Monument

10:30 AM    Begin march down Constitution Avenue.
Rally begins at 11:00 AM. 


Don't want to march?:

   If you cannot (or don't feel like walking):

you can head directly to the RALLY LOCATION at 11:00 AM. 


What to bring:

Find out what to bring and what not to bring to the March. It's going to be a full day of excitement so you want to be prepared.


Entertainment:


The Revolution March is excited to announce our great lineup of speakers and performers!!! Individuals from all sides of the political spectrum are joining forces in the name of liberty and freedom. We may not all agree on the issues being discussed, but on one thing we do agree: Adherence to our beloved Constitution. It is the subversion of it that brings us all together on July 12th. Our musical guests will include: Marc Scibilia, Jordon Page, and Pokerface.

Blog: Veterans: You Can Help...  
Please help Dr. Paul in this struggle.  Thank you.


There is no longer a category at the "Election 08" here at Care2  for Dr. Ron Paul.  To me, to take away his information is UNJUST and I would love to see someone start a petition to have it back again!!!.


I have posted the following in various places since I believe that people can not depend on the MSM to give them the truth. 

"ATTENTION!

This is to let everyone know that they do have an option other than Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain, et al. And, a much better option at that.

RON PAUL IS STILL IN THE RACE!!!

Don't believe the MSM that is saying otherwise.

Ron Paul is STILL A VIABLE CANDIDATE!

Don't let the MSM tell you otherwise.

He is the one who would bring our troops home the soonest. Polls and articles have indicated that veterans support Ron Paul more than all of the other candidates put together.

If you haven't already done so, please read the book "The Revolution: A Manifesto" by Dr. Ron Paul. It is a small book and well-worth the time and small expense (about $13.00 if ordered from Amazon.com).

After reading this book which will thoroughly inform you as to how Dr. Paul stands on the issues, then do a comparison.

I have compared all of the candidates and there is no doubt in my mind that if we want the RIGHT KIND OF CHANGE, we will support Dr. Paul. But, if folks don't support him in BIG NUMBERS, then he will lose and unfortunately, Americans will lose also."


Peace

In honer of all that give there life in the line of duty!!!!



~ A Simple Soldier ~


He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For ol' Bob has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Soldier died today.

He won't be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It's so easy to forget them,
For it is so many times
That our Bobs and Jims and Johnnys,
Went to battle, but we know,

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier--
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his like again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:

"OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
A SOLDIER DIED TODAY."
