Willie Nelson for Nobel Peace Prize

Willie Nelson

A campaign for a Nobel Peace Prize for Willie Nelson's Farm Aid work has been launched!

Willie Nelson's efforts for Farm Aid deserve a nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Join the campaign by liking the Willie Nelson for Nobel Peace Prize page on Facebook.

Willie Nelson has been helping family farmers for over 25 years and has raised awareness of healthy foods while raising funds for the cause.

Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. Dave Matthews joined the Farm Aid Board of Directors in 2001. Farm Aid has raised more than $37 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture. Farm Aid is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to keep family farmers on their land.

John Mellencamp is campaigning to get Willie Nelson a Nobel Peace Prize. The interview took place on SIRIUS XM Willie's Place at Farm Aid 25 in Milwaukee, Wisc.

Use the POWER of "Like" on Facebook.

Facebook is a software application whose most basic function is to report to membership when something is "LIKED". The most powerful method to protect a page, or a person or thing from being blocked, or banned, or removed is to build "LIKE" power for the page. Clicking "LIKE" on appropriate Wall posts by "Willie Nelson for Peace Prize" will tell all of your friends that you "LIKE" "Willie Nelson for Peace Prize". LIKE power is THE power on Facebook. Help push "Willie Nelson for Peace Prize" over 10,000 with your LIKE power.

If everybody will "like" this page, it will post on other people's walls that you "like it." This will make the numbers take off. A careful and conservative "LIKE campaign" will push the campaign and when that happens, the viral quality of the page increases arithmetically.

Also, Suggest to friends. Click link below profile picture on left.

Thanks everybody for liking Willie Nelson for Nobel Peace Prize page on Facebook!

Hey Thrasher - don't confuse reality with negativity. The Nobel Peace Prize is a 100% joke. Recent recipients : Al Gore = fraud/huckster profitting from the scam known as global warming : Obama = fraud/huckster who had done nothing and still hasn't to advance the cause of global peace. Who ever heard of a Peace Prize being given to a man who ordered 30,000+ troops into a war zone known as Afghanistan? Oh wait, they gave Obama his award BEFORE he sent troops off to war. Sorry - my eyes are wide open and a Nobel Peace Prize would diminish the great work done by Willie and Farm Aid based on the pathetically low standards (none) of the Nobel organization.

Sometimes reality is negative.

Oh Jonathan, if anybody DESERVES a peace prize, regardless of its perceived genuineness, it's Willie Nelson.

I know it was a joke to give it to Obama (who used the word "war" 44 times in his acceptance speech, and made it abundantly clear during his presidential run that he supported the war effort in Afghanistan), but that doesn't make it somehow meaningless to give it to Willie Nelson.

P.S. Your opinion on global warming is not a proven fact. Al Gore may be a self-promoting profiteer, but that does not disprove global warming.

Either way, those two points are moot, considering the relevance of giving the prize to somebody as TRULY DESERVING OF IT as Willie Nelson, which is the real point here.

btw, I just returned from Playa Del Fuego, this awesome burner event in Delaware, and MAN WAS IT UNSEASONABLY HOT all weekend. I packed for cool, unfortunately.
