Sign the Petition to Control the runaway federal government

Friends and Citizens,

Listeners to Mark Levin know about the recent momentum behind the Convention of the States project. Mark’s 2013 book The Liberty Amendments got the movement started because he understood that the federal government, under either party, will not limit its own power to spend money we don’t have and erode our rights to life, liberty and property.

As a result, the States joining together to amend the Constitution through Article V is the only other way re-gain control of the federal bureaucracy. Many major officials such as Texas Governor Greg Abbott endorse this project. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/01/09/texas-gov-abbott-calls-for-constitutional-convention-proposes-constitution-amendments.html

There is a strong national — and grassroots — Convention of States movement to get 34 state legislatures to pass a resolution calling for a convention of the states to limit the power of the federal government with:
a. fiscal restraints,
b. limits on its power and jurisdiction, and
c. term limits.

Any convention would be restricted to the topic of limiting government power in these 3 areas. This is a non-partisan movement and it can and must attract not only conservatives, but independents and liberals. Anyone can understand that it is immoral and unjust to saddle every new born baby with $56,000+ in federal debt for which that child will receive no benefit.

Even in NJ the movement is surprisingly strong with local district captains throughout the state. Now is the time to work to convince state legislatures to pass this resolution by getting as many petition signers as possible. Any citizen 13 or older can sign and it can all be done online at the link below. More information is available at the Convention of States website and in the videos linked below.

In addition to keeping up with this year’s election, this is a movement that goes beyond what any new President will be able to accomplish, and must be pursued simultaneously. Take action now:

1. Get your whole family to sign the petition online. http://www.cosaction.com/
2. Forward this email and get other friends and family to sign the petition.
3. Listen to Mark Levin 770 AM 6pm-9pm to hear from the Greatest Voice for Liberty of our generation how to effectively defend freedom.

For Liberty,

Michael

Cast your vote on Tuesday & Tune Out the Dishonest Media

Friends,

This may be an off year nationally, but some states such as NJ and Virginia have elections going on. It is even more important to vote in these low turnout races to support local and state candidates.

Fourth of July Ceremony

Friends,

As we watch our freedoms erode daily, in addition getting ideas to defend freedom from Mark Levin, the greatest voice for liberty today, we can start and perpetuate traditions that support freedom.

One example is a Fourth of July ceremony that is demonstrated in the linked video on Prager University. In addition to the video, you can find a transcript of the ceremony so you can read it at your barbeque, a list of the items you will need, and also an unsigned copy of the Declaration of Independence (in the 4th of July Declaration Kit) that everyone at your party can sign. Give it a try and let me know how it goes. http://www.prageruniversity.com/History/The-4th-of-July-Declaration.html#.VZgHWtjbLL8

Prager University also has many other 5 minute videos that are fun to watch and impart tremendous wisdom for children and adults alike. Bookmark it and share with friends and family.

Happy Independence Day,
Michael

HAPPY 4th OF JULY
Celebrate America
“The American dream lives — not only in the hearts and minds of our own countrymen but in the hearts and minds of millions of the world’s people in both free and oppressed societies who look to us for leadership. As long as that dream lives, as long as we continue to defend it, America has a future, and all mankind has reason to hope.”
President Ronald Reagan
February 22, 1983

Parental Refusal for PARCC Testing

Dear Parents,

We as parents are ultimately responsible for our children’s education. As a result, there are times when rather than trusting the “experts” we should consider looking for ourselves at what is best for our children.

Many states have adopted Common Core and about 12 states use the Common Core aligned PARCC testing, including NJ. If you have not taken the time to read an independent assessment (from an someone not funded by Bill Gates) you will be shocked and chagrined at what is happening while we go about our busy lives.

Our right to assert parental control and refuse to take these Common Core aligned standardized tests is a rare opportunity to take a stand against the loss of local control of education and the intrusion of the federal government and radical educational entities. Testing starts in just a couple of weeks.

We sent our letter today (attached) and delivered it to our daughter’s school. The teachers were supportive and the principal stated there would be no repercussions, despite this being a mandatory test. Regardless of the reception, this is a stand worth taking and it will only be truly effective if enough parents take a stand.

Some relevant links on this growing movement are attached below.

God Bless America,

Michael

A Time for Choosing at the Polls

Friends,

Take a look at the Breitbart article linked below marking the 50th Anniversary of Reagan’s Time for Choosing Speech. The choice has never been more important or clearly drawn as we approach Election Day on November 4. Help the young people in your life to understand this choice. The entire Democrat party has enabled Obama’s big government, anti-freedom, divide the people and degrade the culture agenda every step of the way and any Democrat elected just provides support for this policy. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/10/20/Time-for-Choosing

Take the time to connect with your friends, family, and neighbors and get every freedom loving voter you know across the country out to vote – don’t assume they will all vote.

For those in NJ, some information about the public questions from a very good Tea Party group is below. (These questions alone provide insight to the decay of our elected officials.)

For Liberty,
Michael
