What if somewhere in the world, there was something going on - something that was one of the most important stories of our lifetime?
What if you had the choice to send someone to tell you that story firsthand? Would you send someone like, say, Dan Rather?
Or would you send someone you trusted?
Today, you have the opportunity to help send two of our own, from right here at Redstate, to tell you the real story about what's happening on the ground in Iraq.
In a nutshell, RedState has been invited by the Pentagon to go to Iraq. We want to send Jeff and AcademicElephant, who henceforth insists on being known by her real name, Victoria Coates. They'll leave during the last part of April. But, we need your help to make it possible.
To send RedState to Iraq, we need to raise $7500.00. This presents a challenge to us now, one that it did not present last year. As you probably know, RedState is now owned by Eagle Publishing, Inc. A lot of you are probably asking why they don't just fork over the money. Well, frankly, there just isn't money budgeted for something like this right now, but the experience presents such an invaluable opportunity, we really want to do it. We need your help. Eagle is going to commit the first $2500.00 to the trip, which, given all the data the Pentagon has given us, will cost $10,000.00 total.
We want to make it worth your time and money, so here's the deal. If you will contribute $50.00, we'll make sure you get Victoria and Jeff's posts before everyone else -- from their videos to their writings. If you contribute $100.00 or more, we'll put you on an email list with Victoria and Jeff to correspond with them, ask questions, etc. while they are in Iraq.
This is an exciting opportunity for all of us. The military will take Victoria and Jeff around Iraq and they'll get the word out to all of us on what's really going on over there -- no filter through the mainstream media. Victoria and Jeff will give you the unvarnished reality of what's going on in Iraq. Jeff might even share some war stories from when he was over there fighting. Victoria is looking forward to some original commentaries on the treasures at the Baghdad Museum -- you know, the ones supposedly looted that weren't.
Please help support this worthy cause and please help send RedState to Iraq. We want this to be a community effort that will benefit us all.
UPDATE: Attention Lefty Morons: Jeff actually did enlist and fight in Iraq.
