To: Edward Failor, Iowans for Tax Relief and Steve Sheffler, Iowa Christian Alliance
Many Americans, including the undersigned, have eagerly anticipated the presidential candidates� forum that Iowans for Tax Relief and the Iowa Christian Alliance will be hosting in Des Moines on June 30th, 2007. It will be of great interest to observe the 2008 presidential candidates in a forum that focuses on the important issues championed by these organizations.
However, it is a great shame that you have excluded Ron Paul, a candidate with a very passionate and rapidly growing base of support. Ron Paul's campaign manager, Lew Moore, called you to find out why you did not invite Ron Paul, and you did not provide an answer.
We believe that you should not exclude from this forum a candidate who is arguably the strongest proponent of many of the values you espouse. If you are indeed promoting a discussion on tax relief, the constitutionality of our current tax system should be discussed. Ron Paul is the only candidate who has shown a willingness to lead such a discussion. As for Christian issues, Ron Paul is a strong advocate for peace, both at home and abroad, through non-intervention of our Federal government in our personal lives and in other nations.
We, the undersigned, urge you to immediately extend to Ron Paul and all Republican candidates an invitation to the forum you are hosting.
