Cash For Congress Rally

Tonight, we attended a
BBQ & RALLY for Richard Cash.

He spoke for thirty minutes after a catered barbeque, slaw and beans meal.

Here is some of the information Cash gave at the rally:

• Unlike the other candidates that he'll run against in the June 8th Republican Primary ... he isn't a lawyer and hasn't held an office. He is a very successful businessman and a father of 8 children.

• He is running for (Federal) Congressional House of Representatives Seat / 3rd Congressional District. He identifies himself as Republican.

• The main focus of his campaign is a return to God and Family.

• He has led many pro-life campaigns in the upstate.

• He is a graduate of Furman University. He also attended Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts.

• He and his wife are active members of Christ Church Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Anderson SC.

• He says,

"I am absolutely committed to this country because of my 8 children, potential 30 grandchildren and my great grandchildren."

• He is for term limits and he promises himself not to serve more than 10 years.

• He had this anecdote:

"A recession is when your neighbor loses his job.
A depression is when you lose your job.
A recovery is when Obama loses his job."

• Richard compared America to a ship off course, currently in cold waters, ready to hit a large iceberg.

He also took what he called "The Bottled Water Pledge" as he held up a bottle of water. He said,

" I pledge to drink only bottled water while in Washington because there seems to be something in the water up there."

Take a look at Richard's website:
