Good Morning Freedom Fighters and Truth Seekers,
Well it is a quiet weekend at home to do some catching up on projects while my wife visits with her family in Florida.
Several meeting today including one regarding our China project and a special national conference call on the FairTax Initiative.
The debate last night was a great overall improvement over the first with some tangible issue discussion. Please study all of the issues and all the candidate's (local, state and federal) WRITTEN positions carefully to determine which better matches your principles and philosophy. Look for the substance which will last much longer than the form or style. Look for the meat and the TRUTH.
