Restore The Founder's Vision ~ Event
The Richmond Patriots had a standing room only last night in the Historic Hanover Courthouse for the Restore the Founders Vision presentation. Patrick Henry was in attendance and entertained us with his famous speech that he gave on March 23, 1775, then Pat McSweeney and Jamie Radtke shared their experience and frustration. As a part of the political process they have seen the gradual take over of our rights from the federal government.
What is the founder’s vision? It is self government. It is taking responsibility for ourselves, our families, our communities and our state. The foundations of this country is the individual freedom, but with that freedom comes responsibility. I could make a long list of these responsibilities, but I believe you already know what they are. You may feel overwhelmed and wonder how do we push back the federal government. It’s not as overwhelming as you think, and Jamie Radtke discussed being on offense and defense at the same time.
Our defense is making sure our households are in order and taking care of the people around us. When you see someone in need help them. Our offense is reaching out to our community. Make sure they understand the Constitution and our founders vision, educate them on the issues, help them to register to vote and get them to the polls. This is how your “one” can make a big difference, because as each of us starts to secure our foundations, the foundation of our country will get stronger and the over reaching power of the federal government will lose it’s grip.
You can get started. Are you part of a civil organization, church or neighborhood association? Host your own Restore The Founders Vision event in your community. It’s a great way to get the conversation started, then don’t let it stop.
