Script of "Way Of Life" (TV)
(Text on screen: Scott Siefert, Michigan)
SCOTT SIEFERT [v/o]: My family and my freedoms are important to me.
But because I believe in traditional American values, go to church, exercise my right own a firearm, Barack Obama says I'm bitter.
(Text on screen: Source: San Francisco; 4/6/08)
SCOTT SIEFERT: Well, I'm not bitter. I'm blessed.
SCOTT SIEFERT [v/o]: Out here, we don't cling to guns and religion because we're bitter. We uphold traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.
(Text on screen: Source: San Francisco Chronicle, 4/6/08)
I want a president who will protect my right to own a firearm, to defend myself and family, and protect our country's commitment to constitutional freedoms -- not just tell people he supports them so he can get elected.
SCOTT SIEFERT: I won't compromise my way of life for any politician.
SCOTT SIEFERT [v/o]: And I won't support someone who doesn't believe in my right to self-defense. Not now, not ever.
ANNOUNCER [v/o]: On November 4, defend freedom. Defeat Obama. Get the facts at GunBanObama.com.
