we’re going to make things better in our
state & country...
.....we need YOU!
To give average citizens a really powerful way of telling politicians, candidates and the media that we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!
To provide a avenue of involvement and participation in the political process and issues advocacy for the average citizen who values the Constitution as the first test for candidates and elected officials, as well as for any legislation or regulations.
To put it as simply as
possible -- we want to inspire and support each other to get off our collective
rear ends and keep our elected officials and regulators honest & true to
the Constitutional ideals of limited government and fiscal responsibility. And to keep you involved for the long haul –
not just when it’s popular or easy to ride the current tide.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a grown-up conversation about issues with each other even if we disagree?
And we want to do that together – to give you tools you need – not just to influence elected officials, but also to talk to your neighbors, friends and community even if they don’t agree with you.
Let’s work to show them who we really are -- not the caricature manufactured in some blogger’s midnight rant, or the clichéd profile that peppers the mainstream media.
Let’s show them that people
who care about limited government & the Constitution represent a broad
cross-section of the country. We don’t
sleep in colonial costumes or want to go back to the 18th century
& churn butter.
That even though we are dealing with some serious issues, that we have a sense of humor about ourselves & others.
And let’s not forget the media –Let’s make it our mission that we never see the words “wing-nut” “tea-bagger” or “extremist” as the mandatory adjective in stories about people or politicians who do wacky, wacky things like talk about the Constitution, patriotism or limited government.WE HAVE SOME BIG GOALS.
SO HOW CAN WE DO IT?
First, let’s all make some promises to each other:
1. We promise limit our use of overworked terms like “empowerment” and “stakeholders” and other words that smack of Washington-speak and make it sound like you are doing something when you really aren’t, but want to have something good to include in your campaign ads.
2. We promise to let our fun sides and senses of humor show. Let’s use our humanity to win friends and influence people.
3. We promise politicians & media that it’s OKAY to admit they were wrong, and that “I’m sorry” goes a long way with us.
SO WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY WANT TO ACCOMPLISH?
WARNING: This section contains verbiage very close to
the Washington-speak we mentioned earlier – like “engagement.”
