Have you seen the thirty-second television spots, or heard the shorter radio spots, being sponsored by Freedom’s Watch? If not, you must.
The simple, half-minute, fact-based snapshots are far more powerful than we might believe. They grab the viewers’ and listeners’ attention instantaneously, and they are just the kind of honest ‘sound bite’ that will leave a lasting impression on those of our countrymen who are not necessarily interested in doing their own research, are being swayed by the mainstream media’s bias, but are open to hearing the truth. The average American will be deeply touched by these messages.
Take 3 ½ minutes out of your busy day to watch these seven powerful testimonials to our military’s successes in Iraq (especially number four – in which double amputee, re-enlistee John Kreisel reminds us that ‘It’s no time to quit. It’s no time for politics’.)
The first time my husband and I saw one of Freedom's Watch’s television spots, about two weeks ago, I immediately went to my computer to find out how we can financially support this organization that is obviously dedicated to countering the lies, distortions and anti-American sentiment being disseminated by the likes of moveon.org – and being telegraphed by the left-leaning politicians and their cohorts in the media.
I discovered, upon hitting the ‘donate’ link on their site, that the organization does not as yet have the ability to receive donations on the website. Apparently they are too busy doing more important things, like attempting to counteract media propaganda and leftist political posturing, by spreading the truth. I checked back in tonight, two weeks later, and there is still no way to donate.
I sent Freedom’s Watch an e-mail tonight, strongly suggesting that they attempt to enable that donation link soon, because I am certain that my husband and I are not the only patriots who have been sufficiently impressed by their ‘product’ to want to become a part of the crusade ourselves, if only financially.
How very different this organization is from those supported by the left, to whom power and money are of ultimate importance, and America’s sovereignty and the safety of her citizens are secondary.
Freedom’s Watch has also requested of the New York Times that the newspaper allow the organization to place the same size ad that moveon.org placed this week, at the identical reduced rate of $65,000 – enjoying the same $117,000 discount. The Times has yet to respond to their request.
I urge all of you to watch their seven television spots on the site, and to check back as I did tonight, until they have installed the capability to receive donations online. Then please donate as much as you are able. Because of the historically unprecedented, entrenched, seemingly monumental depth of the corruption and treason in Washington, most of us feel powerless anymore to affect change, and to reclaim our republic from the scoundrels who seek to lead her, while also despising her foundations. This is one small, but powerful, way we can attempt to do so from the comfort of our own homes.
I will provide a heads-up when I find that the site has enabled the donation link, and I ask anyone else who might discover that before I do to post an alert as well.
