We are happy to announce that the South Dakota J.A.I.L. Initiative is
now "out the gate" and running for Victory in 2006!
This race is a nationwide effort, and we invite everyone that can do so, to join

require an average of 3.5 signatures per petition. So we have our work cut out
and for the South Dakota Freedom Roast 2005 hosted by Bill Stegmeier again
this year-- also in August either before or after the Rally.
Let's finally get J.A.I.L. "on the map" -- this is the chance for the
People to make a difference in this country. Passage of J.A.I.L. in South Dakota
will impact all of us everywhere.
