Stand Up 4 Freedom Rally on the Eve of Obama Visit

Stand $ FreedomThe Republican Party of Iowa, in partnership with the University of Iowa College Republicans, today announced a Stand Up for Freedom Rally will occur on the eve of President Barack Obama’s Thursday visit to Iowa City.

The Stand Up for Freedom Rally is scheduled for 6 p.m., Wednesday, March 24, on the East Lawn of the Pentacrest at the University of Iowa. Iowans can register for the Stand Up for Freedom Rally at

“Every time the federal government spends a dollar we don’t have, Americans lose a little bit of freedom,” said Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn. “Every time the federal government places itself in the middle of personal health care decisions, Americans lose a little bit of freedom. Iowans have had enough and it’s time to stand up to our President and stand up for freedom.

“President Obama will find that Iowa has changed dramatically since November 2008. There are over 100,000 Iowans that want to go back to work. Instead, this week President Obama and Iowa’s Democrats in Congress gave them, and all Iowans, an additional half-a-trillion dollars in generational debt and unprecedented federal control over health care.”

University of Iowa College Republicans Chair Natalie Ginty said, “We want everyone to know that people on this campus and in this community stand for freedom.”

All information regarding the Rally may be found online at

Media are welcome and encouraged to attend.

RPI Chairman Matt Strawn just sent out the following email.

Don’t just sit there and watch our country be destroyed and bankrupted by Obamacare – stand up and fight back!

1. Let your voice be heard at the “Stand Up 4 Freedom” Rally in Iowa City at 6 pm on Wednesday, March 24. Let’s show President Obama real change as we “Stand Up 4 Freedom” and take our country back!

2. Go to Make a secure online contribution to send a strong message to Nancy Pelosi. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by 6pm on Wednesday, March 24 – the day before President Obama takes his federal health care takeover victory lap in Iowa City.

3. To keep your voice heard, text “STANDUP” to 41513.

We need your support to gain momentum in this critical midterm election year. Obama got his start here in Iowa in 2007 and Iowa is where his generational theft and freedom suffocating policies will cost liberal politicians their jobs in 2010. It all starts in Iowa!

Be sure to forward this message to friends, family, and neighbors who could join us in Iowa City on Wednesday or support our fundraising effort to “Stand Up 4 Freedom”!

See you in Iowa City!

To victory and freedom,

Matthew N. Strawn
Chairman, Republican Party of Iowa
