Subject: Second radio ad

Here's another radio ad (draft script) we want to start broadcasting in Michigan . . .

Leaving the Road of Fear (120 seconds) (5 parts, plus Jim Babka)

JB: The following is a paid legislative alert from Downsize DC dot org . . .

N: 9/11. It was horrific. It was natural for us to respond -- emotionally, viscerally... even hysterically.

And our Founding Fathers recognized that fear in the face of insecurity might cause us to drift from our principles. But they gave us a beacon back to the right path. It's called the Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson wrote,

TJ: Should we wander [from essential principles] in moments of error or alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety.

N: In that Jeffersonian spirit Ron Paul has introduced the American Freedom Agenda Act.

This _sweeping_ American Freedom bill returns us to the Constitutional path and prohibits un-American things like... 

#1: Torture.
#2: Rendition.
#3: Detention without due process.
#1: Warrantless wiretapping.
#2: Punishing Whistleblowers.
#3: Presidential Signing Statements.

N: As American as this bill is, Ron Paul has only two co-sponsors in Congress. At Downsize DC dot org, we want to improve on that.

We believe Ben Franklin was right when he said,

BF: "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety"

#1: Help us get more co-sponsors for Ron Paul's American Freedom Agenda Act. You can do so at Downsize DC dot org. Ron Paul needs your help to pass this important legislation. 

N: The American Freedom Agenda Act is very short. You can Read the Bill for yourself at Downsize DC dot org. 

JB: This is Jim Babka of Downsize DC dot org. Not one elected official in the Michigan delegation to Congress has co-sponsored the American Freedom Agenda Act. They need to hear from you. A great thinker once said, No snowflake in an avalanche believes itself responsible. We need an avalanche of support. Be a snowflake. Help build the avalanche.

Please visit Downsize DC dot org and click on the link to American Freedom Agenda Act. Use our simple system to urge your elected leaders to co-sponsor Ron Paul's bill. Join the avalanche.
