Dear Fellow American in Iowa,
Your vote was stolen last night. How do I know this? Because I had the opportunity to speak to you in Urbandale, IA last night at the Gospel Assembly Church.
How? Good question.
Remember how we had to speak in alphabetical order according to the candidates we were representing?
Carson went first, if there was no Bush representative, and in our case, there wasn’t. So, the Carson representative went first. We strictly had three minutes. No more.
Then all over the state Cruz supporters stepped up around the same time to deliver the false news Carson was dropping our of the race after Iowa, attempting to waiver your trust in in Dr. Carson.
But we have spent countless hours writing you letters, making those phone calls that many would hang up on, but once we got to talk to some of you, we had some very meaningful engagements on shared concerns for the future of this nation.
We spent even more hours shoving metal posts into frozen ground for Carson yard signs and going door to door to drop off reading materials for you to read Carson’s own words for yourself. We worked the fields in Iowa tirelessly for “We the People” to finally get a vote in.
Some of us drove hours and hours, leaving our families and homes, to speak to our fellow Americans about the grave dangers we, as a nation are facing. Please use common sense. To think that we would make all that sacrifice for our candidate to drop out . . . is just plain silly.
Americans don’t go out into the freezing cold in the middle of the night to deliver hand written letters, asking you to please ignore the media and vote for Carson.
People don’t go out in snow and ice and get into car accidents when our candidate is going to shut down his campaign after this.
People don’t brave hazardous road conditions and have family miss work just so that someone could make the trip to tell you, our fellow Americans, that our future is in grave danger and democracy could be lost as we know it.
I had to leave after my speech because of the snow storm that was rolling in that night. I had to make it back home so my husband could get back to work. He stayed home to watch our kids just so that I could make this trip.
This is the reality of Carson and his supporters. His campaign is made up of “We the people” and his government would be too if we would just elect him president.
In the FBI counterfeit center, when people are trained to spot fake money, trainees are never once given a fake 20, 50, or 100-dollar bill. They are only handed the real deal.
Folks, Carson is the real deal. Don’t take your eyes off of Carson or you may not be able to recognize the lies when they come.
Now is the time to turn off your TV and focus in on truth. Remember, the Bible even says, “even the elect would be deceived.” That is how great the deception will be if we don’t keep our eyes on the real thing.
Your fellow American, Olivia
