Citadel Senior Cadet Mitch Baroody has helped organize the effort to support Congressman Joe Wilson on the web. Less than 48 hours from when the page was created there were 1,100 members and over 100 wall posts commenting the Congressman’s efforts this past week on facebook. Baroody is being credited with helping to start the “Thank You Joe Wilson Movement” all over the country.

On the facebook page that Baroody has helped create members have been able to voice their opinions and appreciation for a congressman such as Joe Wilson from South Carolina.

“Dear Congressman Wilson: Thank you for expressing what millions of Americans feel about President Obama and his plan to bankrupt this nation by passing his Health Care Reform to socialize medicine. You are a good American and have already apologized to the President and he accepted it. Do not let Speaker Pelosi and her partisan cronies intimidate you into apologizing to the full House of Congress; one apology was enough. God bless you and your family and keep up the good work!!!” These were the words from a member of the group from Florida. There are another 128 comments just like this on the facebook page thanking Wilson for all he has done to fight the Democrats in Congress.

Many members have even made contributions to the Re-elect Wilson to Congress fund, and over 700K has been raised thus far for his campaign (there is no telling how much of that came from this past week)!  Another effort that has been started is the “I’m with Joe Wilson” t-shirts , and all profits raised go towards Joe Wilson’s re-election.

So if you are feeling supportive go join the facebook page, “Thank You Congressman Joe Wilson.”
