I'm Zach Foster and I'm blessed to be a man of many hats. This is the one room where you can look into all the different windows of my mind. Read on if you're ready to think outside the box! "Call it a character flaw -- when under attack, I counter attack. Always." --Richard Marcinko, Rogue Warrior
Four years ago I launched a special writing
contest. Contestants were to write an
essay to any audience—liberals, conservatives, independents—about how Ron Paul
best represents them and is the best candidate for the Presidency
The best essays were compiled into a
campaign book in support of Ron Paul’s presidential candidacy, and it was
written by We the People. This book was
published as VOICES OF REVOLUTION: Americans Speak Out for Ron Paul (download it for free).
Nearly four years later, I’m pleased to
announce to you the Stand With Rand Writing Contest.
This time, we’re going big and we’re
going long. We understand that the mainstream media will attack Senator Paul
ceaselessly as he campaigns and spreads a message of individual liberty, sound
money, and peace. They’ll attack him on
TV, on the Internet, and in print.
Our plan is to flood the eBook market with books that are pro-Rand and pro-liberty. In order to do this, I’m calling on fellow
patriots and lovers of liberty to put pen to paper and speak from the
heart. I’m calling on YOUR essays on why
fellow Americans should vote for Rand Paul.
The essays can be any of these five
Conservatives should vote for Rand
Progressives should vote for Rand
Independents and the politically homeless should vote for Rand
Paul is a better Republican candidate than Ted Cruz 5)Rand Paul is a better Republican candidate than Marco Rubio
Paul is a better candidate for America than Hillary Clinton
If you do choose to submit your work,
it’ll be published it under the Creative Commons (CC BY 4.0) license, so you
still retain the rights to your work. Not only are you allowed to re-publish your own work, but the Creative Commons license gives you permission to independently re-publish the entire book!
Remember these guidelines to make your
writing most effective:
·Multiple submissions are allowed,
but each submission has to be on a different topic. The above 5 topics will be 5 different books.
·Write from the heart. Don’t
preach to strangers. Tell them from the
heart why a Paul presidency is important to you AND to the reader.
·When writing to Conservatives,
back up your arguments with Bible verses. Also mention Ronald Reagan and the
“conservatarian” philosophy of Reagan and Barry Goldwater that Americans
overwhelmingly supported. It wouldn’t hurt to mention Rand’s response to
Benghazi, or Glenn Beck leaving the GOP in disgust.
·When writing to Progressives,
don’t forget to mention the damage inflicted on the black community by the
Obama administration and Democrat Party policies. Also stress the Establishment Left’s betrayal
of the working class and abandonment of the LGBTQ community. It’s also good to refer to Howard Zinn’s
populist histories and tie Rand in with empowerment of the working
classes. Also, don’t forget that Bill Maher
is a huge supporter.
·If writing about Hillary Clinton,
focus on every documented lie, half-truth, and cover up involving Hillary,
especially her hawkish support for George W. Bush's, Dick Cheney's, and Barack Obama’s wars.
Stress that Clinton represents a new type of imperial/colonialist America.
·When making a factual claim or
referring to something that happened in real time—a historical event, words
someone said or wrote, etc.—back it up with a citation in a footnote. At least provide a url to make it easier for
your poor editor.
·The deadline for submissions is
11:59 P.M. Pacific Time, June 1, 2015.
Even though that’s 6 weeks away, don’t sit on this. The liberty movement NEEDS your contribution and I'm accepting submissions NOW.
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Every bit of VOLUNTARY grass roots activism
counts. Will YOU stand with me?
