Richard A. McDonald - The "Rise-up" Economy
 How to Make the Poor Rich
Author Dick McDonald introduces the "Rise Up Theory of Economics" which does for the poorDick McDonald and middle-class in America what "Trickle Down" has done for the rich. He explains why centuries of taking from the rich and giving to the poor has not made the poor richer.

For the poorest it has merely made them a dependent class; for ordinary Americans their hard work ends up in the pocket of the rich or as taxes confiscated by their government. Get his new e-book "Make the Poor Rich and America Wealthier" free by clicking
here. It illustrates a better way for America and Americans to grow richer socially and economically.

Dick has been a long-time member of SFVRC and with his economic and accounting background breaks into new territory with his plan for making the poor rich (and therefore not dependent on the left).

This should be an interesting discussion.  You can find out more about Dick's theory by going to his
web site.

Western CPAC Conference
October 12-13, Newport Beach

Western CPAC has confirmed the dates and location for a conference to help educate and renew conservative advocacy in the Western states, especially California. Our conference will have a special theme of "Preserving the Reagan Legacy," and we are delighted that radio talk show host Michael Reagan has agreed to serve as General Chairman of this year's Western CPAC! Especially given the public policy issues to be raised during California's new early presidential primary in February, 2008, we expect an exciting time ahead for public policy organizations and advocates on the West Coast.

Western CPAC does not endorse candidates for office. However, all the GOP candidates for president will be invited to speak and will be featured at either one of the two evening banquets or the Saturday luncheon, and at non-meal Saturday "breakout" sessions as time allows.

There are only 600 people who will be able to attend.  This is the western version of the CPAC conference which took place a couple of months ago in Washington, DC.  I encourage you to make your reservation early, or they may be sold out.  Go the Western CPAC web site to make your reservation.

Move America Forward  
 The Fight for Victory Tour

Americans who support our troops and their missions in Operation Iraqi Freedom will conduct a nationwide pro-troop caravan along with 27-pro troop rallies along the way from September 3rd - 15th.

The nation's largest grassroots, pro-troop organization, Move America Forward will lead thousands of supporters in this cross-country effort called the "FIGHT FOR VICTORY TOUR." At each rally stop we will also be collecting from you cards and letters of support to take to our wounded warriors at military medical facilities where our brave troops are recovering from war injuries. You can also mail in your cards/letters for the wounded warriors to our MAF headquarters in Sacramento before the caravan departs.


The tour will be in Los Angeles on Tuesday, September 4th at Griffith Park.  3:15 PM - Los Angeles, CA
Pro-Troop Rally & News Conference
