Dr. Bowman's "Patriot Tour", is not just a 9/11 truth event (The symptom of an even larger problem), but is a rally for all activists, regardless of issue preference, to come together in solidarity to confront the domestic problems we all face. If not familiar with the event or the man, his slogan is "Follow the Constitution, Honor the Truth, Serve the People". More info is here at ThePatriots.US including his home page letter to Patriots.

He is also a critic of an outgrowth of the SDI program, the Bush administration's proposed National Missile Defense.
