And now, here is Ian Bernard, from Free Talk Live...

Before my usual request for your vote, I thought I'd share some interesting numbers with the Downsizers:

18.2 to 0.0

That's the males 25-54 score from Fall 2006's Arbitron ratings book for Florence, AL where Downsizer hosted Free Talk Live SHUT OUT the typical talk radio competition (Lars Larson). Talk radio listeners love the pro-Liberty, Downsize DC message and these numbers prove it! Our audience share was higher than any other show on the station 6a-11p. Yes, we even beat Rush Limbaugh!

Now I ask again for a simple monthly vote to help propel the message of Liberty to the internet audience. It's fast, simple, and your email address will NOT be sold or spammed:

Thanks for your help!
