I'm writing you as a friend of Hillsdale College to tell you about the College's newest campaign: the "2014 Campaign to Educate Millions."
As you know, America recently celebrated its 238th birthday. And to honor our nation's birth, we've set a goal to raise $238,000 within the next 7 days. This will go a long way towardshelping us educate millions of Americans about the Constitution and liberty in the second half of 2014 - a critical year for America.
Your gift will help Hillsdale register more Americans for our no-cost online courses, including our two new courses that we'll launch this Fall . . .
. . . as well as fund our other online educational programs, events and operations at our "beachhead of liberty" in Washington, D.C., The Kirby Center, and our digest of liberty, Imprimis, which has more than 2.8 million subscribers.
Thanks to your past support, we've already had more than 890,000 registrations to one or more of our online courses.
When you make your tax-deductible gift, you'll have the opportunity to receive a complimentary print of John Trumbull's famous painting, "Declaration of Independence," which hangs in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, an autographed copy of my book, TheFounders' Key, and an edition of our 790-page book, The Constitution: A Reader.
As a friend of the College, you know that Hillsdale does not accept ONE PENNY of government funding - even in the form of federal student grants and loans.
You are probably also aware that we've set an ambitious goal to teach 50 million Americans (over the course of the next two years) about the Constitution, free-market economics, and America's heritage of liberty.
But progressives in power continue to undermine the Constitution. Consider the bureaucratic despotism embodied in the 2,700 page ObamaCare law now with more than 20,000 pages of regulations! These despotic regulations are destroying liberty in America. That's why our "2014 Campaign to Educate Millions" about our nation's founding principles of liberty has never been more crucial.
America cannot survive as a beacon of liberty under our current unconstitutional form of government - a government I've referred to as "bureaucratic despotism."
Hillsdale College, with your support, seeks to revive limited government under the Constitution. The key to accomplishing this?
We can't expect to restore America to its limited-government principles without a citizen-electorate that understands the Constitution, our nation's founding and history, and free-market economics -- those things that make America the beacon of liberty.
That's what Hillsdale will continue to do-- with your support.
Remember, when you make a tax-deductible donation, you'll have the opportunity to receive your complimentary print of John Trumbull's "Declaration of Independence," an autographed copy of my latest book,The Founders' Key, and a copy of Hillsdale's 790-page book, The Constitution: A Reader.
But as I mentioned earlier, supplies are limited. It's important that you make your donation today to reserve your print and books and to help Hillsdale educate millions of Americans. To do that, the College seeks to raise $238,000 within the next 7 days to support our online courses and other education programs on the Constitution and liberty. But we can only reach this goal with your help.
Thank you for your support.
