Are you like me in that each new day brings more information that the government which Abraham Lincoln described as “…government of the people, by the people and for the people…” is rapidly disintegrating into a government that is “of the politicos, by the politicos and against the people?”

Whether it’s a fiscal cliff that the politicos boast they averted by raising taxes and ignoring the crushing problem: SPENDING; or it’s a VP and President who proudly proclaim their likely intentions to assault your 2nd Amendment rights via their Executive Orders, it appears that the future viability of our nation is increasingly at risk.

If you share these same sentiments and frustrations, then I want to challenge you to consider:

Now is no time to back off, surrender, disengage or give up!

If April 2009 was an important date for the founding of the tea party movement, I would contend that January 2013 is an even more important point for Liberty in our nation.

We can no longer sit idly by and watch our nation be dismantled by forces and people who have absolutely no respect for the document they are sworn to defend and protect – our nation’s Constitution!

So I challenge you today!  Liberty needs you more than ever!  Our nation needs you more than ever!  Remember it was John Adams who said:  Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.

Will you re-commit yourself to our Founding Principles?  Will you step up and re-engage?

Recall Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote upon signing the Declaration of Independence in which he challenged his fellow Founders:  “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately!”

Let’s hang together and turn back the tsunami of oppression that flows from Washington DC.

Will you join me?  If so, please make every effort to re-engage:

  1. Join us this week at our Thursday meeting.

  2. Join us on our Facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/groups/67714614236/ 

  3. Reply to this email and say, “I’m with you.  How can I help?”

  4. Forward this email to your friends and family.

And then, let’s raise our collective voices and wills to a point that Washington DC has no choice, no option, but to once again heed the people.

I close with Thomas Jefferson’s quote: “When the people fear the government there is tyranny.  When the government fears the people there is liberty.”

Which is it?  YOU will influence the outcome of 2013.  I pray that outcome includes the preservation of our Constitutional Republic.

Liberty, once lost, is lost forever!
