August 23, 2009
Congratulations! You are a nominee for one of three delegate positions from your state for Continental Congress 2009, a national assembly of The People focused on stopping violations of the Constitution and restoring Constitutional obedience in America. We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education is grateful for your public stand in the defense of Liberty during this critical time in our country. We join with you in the knowing that now is the time to take action!
If you have not already done so, please visit www.cc2009.us and www.givemeliberty.org to become familiar with all that is taking place and what is proposed. Location and dates for this non-political, non-partisan historical event are confirmed for November 8-22 at the Pheasant Run conference center in Saint Charles, Illinois. This is not a Constitutional Convention. We want to defend the current Constitution that we have, not amend It.
We are writing today to bring to your attention to several issues:
Nominee entry content
First, it is our fervent hope that the citizens chosen to represent The People of each state will be the highest caliber Patriots available for the event. We envision the delegates as those who possess an unyielding personal commitment to the concept of Individual Liberty and who are prepared, and capable to engage in an intense debate and public defense of our Constitution.
Please review constitutional scholar and attorney Dr. Edwin Vieira’s “carefully and clearly defined standards” letter to Bob Schulz which has come to be regarded, among other things, as the guidelines defining the nature and qualifications for CC2009 Delegates and their procedings.
After considering this, we would ask you to please review your Delegate nominee information now posted on your state’s page. These are the words and images the public will use in their evaluation of you as a potential representative in helping secure their interest in restoring Liberty for all of us.
Please review your information to ensure it presents the best description of your qualifications. Robust, well crafted language and message content describing both your personal qualifications and personal commitment to Liberty will do much to secure the votes needed to become a CC2009 Delegate. What is your message to The People?
Please note it is possible for you to add links to other websites, documents, images and even streaming videos in the “Personal Statement” and “Profession” fields. If you or your state coordinator still need assistance after reviewing the “how to” information below, please contact Mike Bodine at email@example.com.

It is our hope to raise the funds necessary to completely cover all lodging and food expenses at Pheasant Run. We are doing everything we can to keep the costs to a minimum for all. Our ability in this regard depends on the financial support we receive between now and November 8, 2009. If elected, you should be prepared to pay your way to and from Pheasant Run.
If you have any questions, please contact Judith Whitmore – CC2009 Chief of Staff – at email@example.com.
Thank you for stepping up in defense of our Constitution.
