They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to free themselves from the chains of British tyranny.
But perhaps their greatest achievement was restraining government power and paving the way for the United States to become the freest and most prosperous nation the world has ever seen.
Sadly, the Constitution our Founders passed down to us has been routinely ignored for decades.
Our remaining liberties are under constant assault, and our economy is now teetering on the brink of collapse as a result.
Zach, I'm asking you to help me send a message for liberty and limited government by pledging to contribute as generously as you can to the Champion of the Constitution - Ron Paul - this Constitution Day, Saturday, September 17, at www.RonPaul2012.com.
The truth is, Ron Paul and I are both hoping the Constitution Day Money Bomb will be our campaign's biggest yet.
After all, Dr. Paul has spent over 30 years defending our Constitution with a record that's quite simply unmatched by ANY other elected official.
And in this race for President chock-full of counterfeit conservatives and Big Government establishment Republicans, Dr. Paul's message of liberty is resonating like never before.
Now, both national polls and those in key early primary states prove that not only is Dr. Paul a real contender to WIN the Republican nomination, but that he is THE Republican candidate to take on and DEFEAT President Obama in 2012.
Quite simply, the American people are FED UP.
They want an END to the out-of-control spending, dollar destruction, trillion-dollar wars, and never-ending assaults on their liberties.
If you do, I hope Ron Paul can count on you to pledge to make a generous donation at www.RonPaul2012.com this Constitution Day, September 17.
With your help this Constitution Day, we can send a message to the national media and the Washington, D.C. political establishment that their days of ignoring our Constitution are over.
Nearly 225 years ago, when Benjamin Franklin was asked at the end of the 1787 Constitutional Convention what type of government he and the other delegates had just crafted for the infant United States, he replied, "A republic - if you can keep it."
Today, you and I have a chance to elect Ron Paul as President and preserve our Republic.
So please, this upcoming Constitution Day, help Restore America Now by pledging your most generous contribution at www.RonPaul2012.com.
P.S. This Saturday, September 17, is Constitution Day.
It's also your opportunity to take a stand for the Constitution AND send a message for limited government by pledging your most generous contribution at www.RonPaul2012.com.
Not only will a strong showing on September 17 help us continue to demonstrate to the Washington, D.C. establishment and their allies in the media that Ron Paul is a top-tier candidate, but it'll send a loud-and-clear message that their days of ignoring the Constitution are OVER.
So, please give as generously as you can at www.RonPaul2012.com on Constitution Day, this Saturday, September 17!
