Join us afterward for Hoe-Down BBQ!
We're Inviting George and Laura to join us for some good food and conversation.
We have a few questions to ask him!
The vigil of Cindy Sheehan and the other Gold Star moms in Crawford has struck a chord with the American people. Like these Gold Star moms, we ask the President to take a few moments of his five week vacation to tell them why brave Americans like Casey Sheehan have been sent to their deaths in Iraq.
Cindy has also hit a nerve. The President and his right-wing supporters know that Cindy Sheehan and her simple quest for answers threaten their hold on power. That's why the White House has coordinated a smear campaign against a grieving mother, rather than hear her concerns. The conservative pundits have been turned loose on talk radio and cable-news to slander Cindy and the other grieving moms.
Now they are organizing a giant rally in Crawford to further demean Cindy and mock her sacrifice. We are putting together our own rally to support Cindy and the Gold Star moms.
Show the Bush administration that all Americans demand to know the truth. Come to Crawford this Saturday at noon for a rally to support America's Gold Star moms at the new Camp Casey.
With only days before the encampment is over, it is more important than ever to show that Americans support these mothers and demand answers from our President.
These families have paid the ultimate price for the administration's lies
leading up to the war in Iraq and we all deserve answers. Please join us in
honoring their sacrifice and demanding answers from a President who sent our
troops off to war under false pretexts.
