Springtime in Missouri is beautiful. If you have never driven in or near the heart of the Show Me State, you need to take the time, and there is no time better than the weekend of May 19th.
More than just the usual political speeches, the Rally for Common Sense is bringing conservative activists from around the state and nation to Central Missouri out to a farm affectionately called the "Patriot Field of Dreams" for either a full day or full weekend of patriot speeches, fellowship and activities.
The stunning array of speakers includes such notable national figures as Ambassador, Alan Keyes, Herman Cain, Alphonso Rachael, PJTV, Joseph Farrah, World Net Daily, and former Missourian, Dr. Gina Loudon, Politichiks.
You will also hear from Missouri's new favorite civil liberties attorney, Dave Roland, Tea Party original, Michelle Moore, and many others.
Some of our favorite photojournalists including Moore and Rob Brenner will be joined by Alex Rife who will be producing a documentary film of the event.
In addition to being within ten minutes of the Missouri Capitol, perched high above the banks of the Missouri River, other notable attractions include Fulton, Missouri, home of both the historic William Woods University and Westminster College, the site of Winston Churchill's Sinews of Peace, better known as the "Iron Curtain Speech".
The outdoor display of the section of the Berlin Wall carved by Churchill's granddaughter sits right next to the churchill statue, both at the foot of the famous 17th Century Sir Christopher Wren designed, Church of St. Mary Aldermanberry imported stone by stone from London.
Finally, for the best kept secret in Missouri, the event is within minutes of Tonanzio's restaurant in Guthrie Missouri. Owned by the Dawson family, long time board members and even past Chairman of Safari Club International, the restaurant is one of the most unique dining experience you could ever have. The trophies collected from countless hunting expeditions around the world are expertly mounted and preserved in amazingly elaborate dioramas. If camping is not your style, they feature a theme room bed and breakfast.
Tickets are just $10 if purchased by this Saturday the 5th. Make a weekend of it, call it a staycation, or just make it a "one tank" day trip. Whatever you do, do not do anything less for your family on the 19th.
