But Helpful If
you can do nothing else to support
this campaign for Liberty
please go to the Kevin
Craig for Congress blog and make a
comment. Perhaps you know of a web
page I should link to. Comments
help boost the blog's ranking in the
search engines. Also, your
feedback is very helpful to shape this
campaign. At the bottom
of this page is a drop-down menu
of all the blog posts. Pick one and
post your comment: pro or con, for or
against, indifferent, or a question
for Kevin Craig.
Now, when you're really serious
about contributing to this campaign
you can start your own blog here.
It's free. All you have to do is post
a note to your blog that you just
commented on the Kevin Craig for
Congress Blog, and link to the page
where you left your comment. You'd be
surprised how valuable such a
contribution can be to this campaign!
I am grateful that I have the freedom to run for public office
and publicly proclaim my values, goals and vision for the
future. As I state on my main Campaign
Finance page, I oppose all restrictions on campaign
contributions. A campaign contribution is one way those who
can't run for office can still make their voice heard. All
Americans should be allowed to contribute as much as they want
to any campaign, without government restrictions on their
freedom of speech.
But I am not accepting any campaign contributions.*
Campaign dollars buy lots of annoying signs to clutter up the
highways, and a little over-priced exposure on TV and radio,
which consists only of 4-second sound bites. Campaigns cost
millions of dollars because of the price of displaying images
and symbols on television. These rapid-fire media blasts have
little substance, and have little educational value, but they
cost a lot of money. Direct mail pieces get thrown out with
other junk mail. None of this accomplishes what I want to
accomplish: get Americans to do some serious thinking about the
principle that made America great: "Liberty
Under God." I want
them to be able to find resources to answer socialist objections
to the idea of Liberty
I am therefore conducting a "stealth e-Campaign"
which requires no campaign expenditures (except the "KevinCraig.US"
I'm asking you to email everyone you know and tell them you
" is the principle that made America great, and
you're going to send a message to the incumbent that he needs to
become a leader and not a follower. If your friends don't have
email, write them a personal letter, invest 44Ę, and mail it
off through the US Postal Service. Or
give them a phone call.
Your email costs me nothing. An email from you is respected
-- unlike slick but impersonal bulk rate mailings from a
well-funded campaign. Your friends will think about the idea of
" because you asked them to. They know you.
They respect you.
Mathematics is Our Friend
If 50 people read this website and send a letter or email to
50 people urging them to support "Liberty
Under God," who
send it to 50 people who in turn send it to 50 people who send
it to 50 people, 312 million people will get this
message! There are less than one million people in this
congressional district, and less than half of them vote.
Can you send an email to everyone in your address book or
Rolodex? You can ask your friends who don't even live in
Missouri to take a stand in defense of "Liberty
Under God" by writing to people they
know who live and vote in Missouri's 7th district. Send them the
zipcode list. Many people have the poor choice of Tweedledee
and Tweedledum in their own election, and would be glad to
be able support a candidate who really stands on principle, even
if they can't vote for that candidate.
In the last election, nearly 8 out of 10 voters voted for the
incumbent. If only 3 out of 10 voters shift their vote from the
"winner" to a principle, the political pundits
and analysts will really sit up and take notice. Your letters
and votes can send a clear and powerful message of support for
the idea of "Liberty
really want to save America and make the
world a better place? Then you need to
build an email list and fight in the
battle of ideas for liberty, limited
government and "True
Religion." It is an information
war. It is a battle of ideas. Go fight
and win this war simply by sending
emails, writing letters, or making phone
calls to as many people as you are able
to reach. Each and every one of you
reading this message needs to start
collecting email addresses and building
select email lists to restore "Liberty
We are in a war of ideas. Ideas rule the world. The ideas of
those who won elections and expanded the federal government in the
1960's still rule our lives today. You can change the world of
tomorrow. The Internet has given us the ability to share ideas
freely in an uncontrolled manner with a mass audience.
Remember, 50 x 50 x 50 x 50 x 50 = 312,500,000
Personal and Face-to-Face
The Internet is a powerful communications tool. This website
contains a fairly comprehensive defense of "Liberty
Under God" and its application to the issues we face
today. But many people are more easily persuaded and inspired by a
dialogue or discussion, where their individual questions or doubts
can be answered with some give-and-take and back-and-forth.
Many people will decide to support a candidate only after some
live, face-to-face human contact where they can get a
"feel" for the candidate as a person. They want an
interview before they hire.
If you can invite 10 or more of your friends to your home for
coffee, I will make every effort possible to be there to explain
Under God." Every
person you invite will appreciate hearing this message. It will be
an informative and stimulating get-together. Call me at
417.598.8303 to arrange a "Coffee with the Candidate."
Looking Ahead to 2012
Million-dollar political sound-bite campaigns are an anti-American
dinosaur. Our campaign learns from the past and looks to the
Decentralized, grass-roots Internet campaigns are the wave
of the future.
Face-to-face encouragement is a lost art from the past.
Let's use the Internet to organize a series of grass-roots
meetings to educate victims of federally-controlled schools.
Monthly meetings could make a real difference in the elections in
I get a natural "high" by sharing the ideas of "Liberty
Under God "
with others and seeing a light go on. I'm sure you know people who
would enjoy learning about the principle that made America great,
and that it can still work in the modern world. Let's get
Doctors, lawyers, and other professionals are required to take
"Continuing Education" classes to remain up-to-date and
fully qualified to practice their profession. We should all be
professional Americans. We need classes and seminars in
"Continuing American Education."
Another Way to Contribute
This website has over 600 individual webpages. It's not easy
keeping them up-to-date (and many are not). Whenever you find a
link that leads nowhere, you can help this campaign by sending an

to no longer exists. You can copy the words "This is a

* Yes, I know what you're thinking:
"not a big sacrifice." At this point, that's true.
Perhaps in the future larger events might require substantial
funding. But there's plenty to do until then that can be done for
little or no cost.
