Restore The Republic: 2009 and Beyond – You make it happen!

Buckle up 2010 is here! In case you missed it we had an excellent turn out for our first Virtual Town Hall meeting! Members from all across America joined to ask questions and raise issues. I ran down the highlights and low lights of 2009… here’s a quick bullet pointed list of what Restore the Republic has accomplished in ’09:

But the list doesn’t stop there, and this is where we need your support to ensure that our message continues to be heard and that we can take it to the next level this year.

The production studio that our members helped to build is one of a kind in our movement to educate, activate, and restore America, but it needs to be staffed with solid professionals who can get the job done. For the past 3 years my wife and I have put all our time and energy into building and sustaining this effort and quite frankly with the growth we’ve experienced, we need help. The two of us cannot possibly handle the workload much longer.
You may have noticed that we have not released a Reality Report in two months. Having a paid and accountable staff will solve many problems. We have been interviewing professional staff to come to the Northbrook home office to work on our show and assist in day to day operations. Unfortunately local volunteers, who have prior obligations and time commitments, do not afford us the ability to develop the momentum needed. This is your movement, this is your message, this is your opportunity to support a broadcast that isn’t tied to corporate sponsorship nor party line talking points.

Our goal is to raise $36,000 to provide one years worth of salary for two production assistants. We have the drive, talent, passion, time, and dedication to the cause, all we need is your support. I need you to make a financial contribution today so we can raise the money… every little bit helps.
