Please forward.

RICHARD MACK ADVANCES IN "AMERICAN CANDIDATE"!

"American Candidate" Richard Mack is coming to
Virginia!

"American Candidate" will attempt to identify one
individual who has the qualifications and qualities to
be President of the United States. The winner gets
$200,000 and a chance to address the nation on TV.
Over the course of 10 weeks, 12 candidates will
face-off against each other in a series of challenges
designed to test their presidential mettle. More
information can be found at
http://www.americancandidate.com.

Freedom-lovers in Utah, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania --
and from across the country -- have helped Richard
Mack advance to the latest challenge in Virginia.
Thank you so much for your support!

But Richard Mack's competitors are backed by some
major, well-organized special interest groups. Richard
Mack barely survived the cut in Pennsylvania, so his
supporters and he are going to have to significantly
ramp up the effort and break out their Rolodexes if he
is going to move on.


HOW YOU CAN HELP RICHARD MACK ADVANCE IN VIRGINIA

The rules or the challenge may change, but if history
is a guide, on Sunday, June 20 and Monday, June 21
until 4 P.M., anyone calling from a Virginia telephone
can call a toll-free number to "vote" for Richard
Mack.

Once I learn what the toll-free number is, I will post
it to http://www.mackforgovernor.com (we paid for the
web site until the end of the year, so we might as
well use it). Some of Richard Mack's supporters have
been pretty good about posting the toll-free number to
the message boards at americancandidate.com.

Calls may originate from any phone with a Virginia
area code: 276, 434, 540, 571, 703, 757, and 804.

A call from home, work, a mobile phone, and a payphone
will count four times. Calling from a row of payphones
from a hotel, airport, or mall ... wow!

Another strategy that candidates have employed is
copying off a sheet of the candidate's name and
toll-free number and handing them out door-to-door,
store-to-store, and places where people with phones
(mobile or otherwise) gather. Anyone in Virginia could
do this on her or his own initiative!

Yet another strategy is to line up local talk/morning
radio and television interviews for the candidate to
deliver his talking points and give out his toll-free
number.

I'm sure that you can think of other ways (spreading
the word by telephone, email lists, electronic
bulletin boards, chat rooms, etc.) to Get Out The Vote
for Richard Mack.


UPCOMING SCHEDULE

According to one web site, the remaining "American
Candidates" are scheduled to appear at Old Cabell Hall
at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville on
Sunday, June 20, 2004 at 12:30 P.M.

Then on Monday, June 21, 2004, the candidates will
meet with local groups to discuss issues and gather
support to generate calls to their toll-free number
before the deadline.

IN SUM ...

Yes, this exercise is a little silly, but the
activities do mirror some of the grassroots efforts
necessary to support a winning campaign, so think of
it as training for the real thing!

Besides, your support of Richard Mack in "American
Candidate" helps promote what Patrick Henry called
"the Holy cause of Liberty"!

Yours in liberty,

***?
It's times like these I'm glad I don't have a TV to suck my brains out.

This is actually from the website FAQ sections:
Will the contestants really be running for president?

No. During show production, people will be running to be selected as the winner of AMERICAN CANDIDATE. However, once the show has ended, the winner of (or any other participant in) AMERICAN CANDIDATE may choose to run for president. The decision about whether or not to run for president is entirely up to the individual. Please note that any contestant that explores or announces an actual candidacy during the production of AMERICAN CANDIDATE will be disqualified


I just looked at all of the other candidates. What a collection of losers and whackjobs they are! If they represent a cross section of America, I need to find a cave and hide.
If you vote,do so for this Mack fellow as he seems to be the only normal one in the bunch.

If I didn't have things to do, I'd head down and check this amusing contest out since they're in town today.

Nope, but after reading his webpage, I do approve of his views.
I notice that he was the one who challenged the Brady checks out west
The rest of the bunch he's running against though-yikes!
As stated though, I get my news and views through the internet as I don't have a TV.

Met Sheriff Mack in Vegas last year at a gun show. He was just outside selling GOA memberships and signing his book. I joined GOA, got a signed book and entrance into the gun show. Also met him again a couple of months ago at a gun show in Tucson doing the same thing. I didn't know he dropped out of the Utah Govenor's race. I told him he should run for Arizona govenor. Hope he does one day.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Sheriff Mack on several occasions -- not only at gun shows but also at a Friends of the NRA fundraising dinner. He is sincere and he's not a whacko who is a perennial candidate-for-something.

Our country needs people in leadership positions who have guts, integrity and are committed to our Constitution. I'm glad Sheriff Mack doesn't back down and I'm proud he's a member of our wide-spread community.

Very Respectfully,
