Dear Readers,

You might remember me as the Ron Paul Junkie, or (ages ago) the Ladies of Liberty calendar girl, but most recently I was Ron Paul's congressional communications director for five years in D.C. until he retired. I'm back in North Carolina now to raise my little boys, but in my spare time (ha!) I'm also trying to help as much as I can.

Our destructive foreign policy has always been a key issue for me, but now that I have sons my sense of urgency on this issue is on a whole new level. It's so frustrating that so many of those who screamed about Bush's foreign policy are quiet now that it's Obama's foreign policy-even though nothing has really changed and some things are much worse. Where is the outrage? is consistently a voice for peace. I respect that, and we need that. This week is having a major fund drive-with matching funds from a few generous donors. I love the chance to double my money!

Can you help? Remember: matching funds are in effect, so you'll get twice as much bang for your buck!

The violence must stop. My babies will not grow up to be cannon fodder for some illegal war.

Now is not the time to surrender the fight for peace. Make your donation today.

Rachel Mills, mom
