THE MOPP PHILOSOPHY v. ENDORSEMENTS
In this issue you will find MOPP endorsements for various candidates and issues. Please note that these are merely recommendations andwe urge ALL readers/subscribers/members NOT to base your decisions on one source’s “opinions”. It is imperative that you DO YOUR OWNHOMEWORK!MOPP is committed to working within the framework of the 2 party system that exists currently, especially in this election cycle, when a thirdparty candidate could diminish our chances for victory. We are frankly not happy with either party, but of the 2, we feel the one that comesclosest to being “salvageable” is the Republican Party. Therefore, at this juncture, we are dedicated to utilizing the precinct strategy to workwithin the Republican Party, from the ground up, to make it more reflective of grassroots conservative principles and values...we believe weneed to BE the party!. For this reason, our endorsements lean heavily toward the Republican ticket; however, we are pleased to note thatquite a few of those running on the Republican ticket, and whom we are endorsing, have come out of the “grassroots movement”, so we aremaking positive strides and this is a step in the right direction. Remember…we did not get here overnight…it will take time to turn the time!Per Frieda Keough/MOPP St. Louis County Coordinator: A separate memo will go out shortly to our contacts with recommendationsregarding judgeship and ballot issues specific to St. Louis County.

(Jim serves as MOPP County Coordinator for Callaway County)
Greetings,My initial goal of writing a different letter to the editor each day until election has been derailed by . . . just stuff, distractions, family duties,bad cold, and an over-load of topics to write about. There is just so much garbage being dumped on us each day, it's getting hard to keep up. You don't suppose that old age has anything to do with it, do you? I have posted a new crop of letters on thePatriots Dream Team web site...http://patriotsdreamteam.com/conservatives-wanted/letters-to-the-
