Freedom Friday 07.24.09

Welcome to Freedom Friday!

Today we're going to do something fun. I'm having a Freedom Friday Giveaway!

I'm giving away a copy of Glenn Beck's new book "Common Sense."

It's a quick, easy read that really lays out out the case against an out-of-control government...which is handy since that's the title of the book. See? How's that for common sense? Make the title of the book relevant to the subject.

Here's the catch. You knew there had to be one right?

If you win the book, you have to promise:

1) You'll actually read it or give it to someone who will actually read it; and

2) After you read it (or the person you gave it to reads it) you(they) will give it to someone else and ask them to actually read it or give it to someone who will...who will promise to pass it on and on and on; and

3) After each person reads it they will log onto my blog and leave a comment about the book and let me know where they live. Won't it be fun to see how far the book travels?!

I'll put the link to the specific post where comments about the book can be made inside the front cover of the book and my location to get it started. Feel free to be vague about your exact location. This is the world wide web, after all. For example, I'm going to use the closest major city to my actual home town.

Ok, here's how to win:

Leave a comment below and tell me what topic you would like to hear more about here on Freedom Friday. I will use the infamous random number generator to choose a winner from the comments. This contest will close on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 9:00 pm Central. You do not have to be a blogger to win. However, please make sure you leave me your email address in your comment or enter your email address in your Blogger profile so I can contact you if you win. To avoid spam when leaving your email in your comment, you can type "(at)" instead of "@" and "dot" instead of "." I'll use my common sense to figure it out.

Lisa, as a faithful follower and commenter of your Freedom Friday posts, it's only fair that I receive the book. Because I seriously thought about buying one for myself but I'm trying to remain fiscally conservative.

I loved the post you did about the founding fathers, their beliefs, what this country was truly built on. You know, the things they tried to teach you in history class but you forgot. I really want to learn more about how our country came to be and how we have gotten so far off track from their ideals.

And, Glenn Beck is a cutie, but don't tell my hubs.

Ooooh. Ooooh. I want to win.

Although I have to say, I'm not sure even Glenn can explain the nation's politics to me like my smart friend can. But I'll try anything once!!!!

Let's see....teach me more on FF about how I'm supposed to feel about the IRS. Because I was trying to be an active participant in a discussion today, and was looking over my shoulder hoping that you had shown up. Because, you know that I look to you for my stance on all things smart.

Love and miss ya.

Sorry, I'm entering again. Because I NEVER win these things, I have no friends, I have no husband, I have no functioning reproductive system, and I deserve something fun and nice for once in my life! Yes, I AM playing the pity card!

Kendra said...

This book will be mine. If any of you readers had any heart, you would let me have it even if you won it. Because I have the worst luck in life, I deserve to have the tide turned by winning a book. So yes, I am going for the sympathy vote again.
