My son Rand is nearing what will be an historic victory - and the first truly pro-liberty Senator in a generation or more.
You can help put him over the top. Rand and his team have informed me that they must raise an additional $200,000 between now and 10am tomorrow for their last round of TV, radio and get-out-the-vote efforts.
Please do all you can today by donating to Rand. You can do that by clicking HERE.In Liberty,

The snag is that you’d never come back.
The U.S. space agency Nasa is actively investigating the possibility of humans colonist other worlds such as the Red Planet in an ambitious project named the Hundred Years Starship."
Rush Limbaugh mentioned the Art Robinson/DeFazio race on his radio show today! It came up because of DeFazio's ridiculous political stunt in which he called for the impeachment of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts.
Rush Limbaugh also mentioned that Charlie Cook - a well known analyst - has moved our race from safe Democrat to "in play"!
Although he did not mention Art Robinson's name, it is an indicator of how this race is gradually attracting more and more national attention. Most political analysts have been assuming up until now that DeFazio is unbeatable, largely because he has been there so long. If we can win on election day (which we are very likely to do), it will be major national news. Please continue to work as hard as possible to make sure our campaign is a success! Almost 1/3 of Oregon voters don't usually vote in the midterm elections - often because they just don't get around to it. Only you can make sure they do this time!
If you would like to call or e-mail Rush Limbaugh and tell him more about our race, it would be very worthwhile. He is probably not aware of the 17,000 yard signs, 24,000 car door magnets, and tremendous enthusiasm and grass roots support in our campaign. This, of course, is because of all your hard work! It has been a very unusual race, but Rush Limbaugh is covering the election as well as other things for the entire country. You can e-mail him at: email@example.com or call in tomorrow between 9:00 am and 12:00 noon at: 1-800-282-2882.

How many Talk Show hosts or politicians speak about the men and women who helped make America the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?” Glenn Beck, of the Fox News channel, often speaks about the Constitution, Bill of Rights and those who stood for America’s Independence.
Is anyone talking about the upcoming War Between the States Sesquicentennial? The 150th Anniversary of the War for Southern Independence will be commemorated by such groups as the Georgia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans. See more information at: http://www.150wbts.org/Do young people know the truth about Henry Wirz?
The 35th annual Captain Henry Wirz Memorial Service (a tradition started by the Alexander H. Stephens Camp 78 Sons of Confederate Veterans and Americus Chapter United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1976) will take place on Sunday afternoon, November 7th at 3 PM in the town of Andersonville, Georgia.
The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Richard Rhone from Tuscaloosa, Alabama who is the Lieutenant Commander General of the Military Order of Stars and Bars. John Carroll will lead those assembled in the singing of “Dixie” and Andersonville Mayor Marvin Buagh will bring welcome.
For more information about the event contact James Gaston by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Captain Henry Wirz was born, Hartman Heinrich Wirz in November 1823, in Zurich, Switzerland where his father, Abraham Wirz was highly respected.
At the outbreak of the War Between the States, Wirz enlisted in the Fourth Louisiana infantry on June 16, 1861. He was promoted to sergeant a year later and was wounded at the Battle of Seven Pines. He never recovered from the injury to his left wrist and it caused him great pain for the rest of his life.
Wirz was promoted to Captain on June 12, 1862 and was first detailed to General John Winder where he was given command of a Confederate military prison in Richmond, Virginia.
After serving a year as special emissary to President Jefferson Davis in Paris and Berlin, on March 27, 1864, he was installed as commandant of Andersonville Prison at Fort Sumter in Georgia. Wirz did the best he could do with many Union prisoners and very little food and medicine. It is written that the guards got the same food and medicine as the prisoners.
The Confederacy sent a distress message to Union President Abraham Lincoln and Union General Ulysses S. Grant. The South pleaded for an exchange of Confederate and Union prisoners. Lincoln and Grant, however, refused believing the Union prisoners might go home but the Confederate prisoners might go back to fight another day.
Captain Henry Wirz was unfairly charged of war crimes and even though witnesses for the defense could testify, his fate was already decided. Among those who knew of Wirz’s innocence was a Union soldier who was a prisoner at Andersonville.
Wirz was executed in Washington, D.C. on November 10, 1865.
The Confederate Reenactors and Honor Guard of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 78 (Muckalee Guards) will perform the closing ceremony at the monument to Wirz in Andersonville placed there by the United Daughters of the Confederacy (Georgia Division).

"The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
(My G, G Grandfather Electioneering In 1836)
"........when men's private and public character both are publicly assailed unjustly and without the shadow of truth, it becomes necessary that the accused should endeavor to confute false reports."
"Okay, here's a little scruples quiz for you ...
Imagine you're a fireman in a small town where you know everybody. You rush into a burning hotel, and there, unconscious on the floor of one of the rooms lie a pair of people you know to be a politician and a prostitute. You're by yourself, and you can only rescue one of the two.
Question: which one do you save?"
