    The "Beehive State" It's true. Look it up

    Default It's down to the wire. We need you to act.

    Next week is the primary election.

    According to a poll by the Flint Journal, Jeff Garfield and Ramsey are neck and neck with 30 percent of the votes each. The remaining candidates make up the other 40 percent.
    http://www.mlive.com/search/index.ss...?fljournal?NEF

    Let's face it. We don't live in district 105 but we care enough about our fellow humans to let them know that a liar will be representing them if they vote for Ramsey.

    I will venture to say at this point, if people vote for the other candidates other than Garfield, they are basically giving a vote to Ramsey.

    We need everyone to act. To write letters to the editor. I would suggest you don't make accusations on who killed JBR because we really don't know.

    I would suggest you focus on John Ramsey's character. His lies. His non-commitment to finding the killer, his lack of cooperation.

    Most newspapers require a real name, address, and phone number. They must do this to discourage crank letters.

    I have never seen a newspaper print an address or a phone number, just the name, city and state.

    I know this scares many of you off and I don't blame you. Not one bit. But keep a couple of things in mind.

    The Ramseys know all my information. Everyone does. Look what I have done personally to get the truth out about them. I own FFJ and Websleuths, I led the fight for a special prosecutor, I started www.supportramseytruth.com , and exposed Michael Tracey among other things.

    I want to stress that not one thing would have been done had it not been for you and all your hard work. In fact much of the actual work done behind the scenes is from you kind people.

    My point is the Ramseys have ignored me. I like that. Lin Wood has dismissed us by saying we need to be "pitied" because we don't have a life. Good. Let them think that.

    If the Ramseys or their henchmen were going to do anything to anyone I believe they would have done it by now and would have done it to me. Not that they could do anything to me whatsoever. In fact if I get hit by a bus,(heh) the forum will be in good hands and the work will continue.

    I am not guaranteeing that nothing will happen if you provide your personal information. I can't guarantee that. It is your decision.

    Final note.

    Under a 1964 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, a public figure must show "actual malice" to win a defamation case.

    You must know your assertions are false or you had "reckless disregard" for whether they were true or not. And make no mistake about it. Ramsey is a public figure now as is Patsy.

    In other words you must know what you are writing is 100 percent false and you have disregarded the truth.

    Exclamation

    It would be nice if some of the other candidates would step aside and endorse Mr. Garfield but barring that, Tricia is right, the only way we can help Mr. Garfield is through letters to the editors or campaign donations.

    "Let's face it. We don't live in district 105 but we care enough about our fellow humans to let them know that a liar will be representing them if they vote for Ramsey."

    I imagine even the 30% who will vote for him know that already. :-) Maybe not. Does this mean you won't be doing a FFJ blanket letter?

    Since there are more than two candidates, must the winner receive 50% or more of the vote to avoid a run-off election? I'm thinking that is the way it is in Texas.

    Why, look who is mysteriously missing from a golden opportunity to meet the public he so vigorously protests he is concerned about.

    Maybe the fact that only one person from Cheboygan bothered to contribute (to the tune of $100) to his campaign soured John Ramsey a bit on the area.

    http://www.cheboygannews.com/article...news/news1.txt

    Election time is here, and the Cheboygan Area Jaycees will host a "meet the candidates" event Wednesday at The Boathouse restaurant.

    ...

    So far, the following candidates are scheduled to attend: Jack Apol, Kevin Elsenheimer, Jeff Garfield, Bonnie Nothoff, Craig Ryan, Greg Dean and Jim McKimmy, all of whom are vying for a seat as state representative for the 105th District; incumbent Mickey Castagne and attorney Scott Ingersoll, who are competing for role as Cheboygan's Prosecuting Attorney; County Clerk Mary Ellen Tryban who is running unopposed; and County Treasurer Linda Cronan, who is also unopposed.

    Why Nut you silly poster...John can't possibly appear with the other candidates as he may have to answer questions! We've all seen him hem and haw and stumble on the most basic questions.

    Besides Snotty Johnny doesn't want to 'lower' himself by campaigning locally....after all he was a LKL star!

    This letter will be going out to all the papers I can get my hands on.

    Thanks to Greenleaf and others for their help. It is 298 words. Just right.

    To the Editor.

    Forums for Justice.org (www.forumsforjustice.org) is a diversified on-line community proactively dedicated to helping victims of crime. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world come to Forums for Justice to read about the cases we cover.

    One of the cases we have followed for over seven years is the murder of JonBenet Ramsey in 1996.

    Most members of Forums for Justice have seen all of the Ramseys’ numerous interviews (in reference to the JonBenet murder case) given to various media outlets.

    When informed individuals, such as members of Forums for Justice, who have a broad-base knowledge of the case, see the Ramseys on TV (i.e., their recent MSNBC appearance on the Debbie Norville Show) we cringe at the lies and half-truths they continue to tell. Based on those lies and half-truths, the general audience, who has not been privy to the facts of the case, has little recourse but to form faulty conclusions.

    The Ramseys come before the public again and again, seeking sympathy and trying to regain their reputations, but those of us who have followed the JonBenet case question where this kind of dogged determination was when it came to cooperating with the Boulder Police Department in trying to find the killer of the their daughter.

    We have set up a website for Michigan voters at www.supportramseytruth.com. We encourage everyone to read and judge for him or herself if John Ramsey has manipulated the truth.

    Public trust should be reserved for men and women of integrity. To the citizens of Michigan: seek representation from the candidate with clean hands, a man whose values you can trust. We pray that such a man exists and that you elect him.

    Sincerely,
    Tricia Griffith

    Excellent letter, Tricia. I hope it will be printed by every newspaper to which it is sent.

    Tricia, there were a couple of errors - I edited your post, haha, it's so cool being a mod. "7" came out, "to" was inserted in one place. I have permission to do this, gang, so don't think I just arrogantly decided to fix Tricia's letter.

    Excellent! I am sure John and Patsy will love it! NOT!!

    The above is just my opinion, right or wrong, but please leave it at FFJ.
