Mark your calendars for April 5th 2014 if you believe that America was built to be free. A group called Connecticut Citizens Defense League is holding a rally in Hartford.
Many will see it as “just another 2A gathering” but it is really so much more then that. It is a rally to be reminded about what our founding fathers stood for. It’s a rally to remind us why each one of us makes a difference. It’s a rally to rekindle our desire to take heart in the statement, “for the people, by the people.”
As I sit here in the legislative building waiting to testify against common core, my main message is that one size doesn’t fit all. As it is with your involvement in the political fight that we must take part in this year. I am a new kid on the block, I learned by others showing me that knowing and talking to your representatives is important. All of us know some things, but none of us know everything. We all need to help others when we can. Your point of view is unique, just like mine.
I hope that you will step up however you can in your own community. Perhaps you will join us at the rally but maybe you will just let some folks know that it’s happening. Maybe you will start reading the local newspapers and get involved in the local issues that matter to you. <– that’s how I started.
America is in distress, today I know more people that are out of work then ever before in my lifetime. We need to make changes at the local level that will help everyone, no more stealing from Peter to pay Paul. We, the American people, need to step up and take responsibility for the state of affairs and realize that we can make a difference if we all step up.
If you are in the Litchfield area I am chartering a bus to the rally from the large commuter lot off of exit 42 on route 8. If you would like a seat click on this link. Seats cost $15.
Hope to see you there!
