Rolling Thunder is a worthy all American organization dedicated to service to America’s POW/MIA. Here is their MISSION STATEMENT:
Rolling Thunder, Inc.’s major function is to publicize the POW-MIA issue. To educate the public of the fact that many American prisoners of war were left behind after all past wars. To help correct the past and to protect the future veterans from being left behind should they become Prisoners Of War/Missing In Action. We are committed to helping American veterans from all wars. Rolling Thunder, Inc. is a non-profit organization and everyone donates his or her time because they believe in the POW/MIA issue.
Many of the Republican Parties “gathering stars” were in New Hampshire Sunday. Conventional thought would have any Republican who is considering a run for the Presidency in New Hampshire. Unconventional would be to have your family in that Ride for Freedom. That’s what Sarah Palin did.

Is she running? It doesn’t seem to matter, She is clearly in a position to bend history towards “We the People” as she did Sunday. Take a look. Why did no other “gathering star” choose the unconventional Rolling Thunder ride? Power Line’s John Hinderaker said it best:
In principle, other politicians could do the same thing. Maybe some have. What is
different about Sarah Palin and her family is that they look natural on motorcycles. Imagine Barack Obama–or, to be bipartisan, Mitt Romney–trying to mingle with the bikers and look at home on a Harley. Heck, if one of the motorcycles broke down, Todd undoubtedly could fix it. And when Sarah greeted the crowd before the ride began, the affection from her fans didn’t need to be feigned or bused in.
