Don’t be a sunshine patriot!
This week in Maryland there are Tea Party meetings all over the state. Groups like the Central Maryland 9/12 Group, Cecil County Patriots, We The People in Carroll County and Maryland Society of Patriots are meeting every night this week and there are 3 separate Tea Party Rallies on Saturday. This proves without a doubt that the Tea Party is not dead and in fact it is alive and well, even in a deeply Democratic state like MD.
These aren’t just living room gatherings either. Experts from all over will be speaking on matters from EMP’s to reaching the next generation with a conservative message. A new breed of Candidates will be speaking and some of those who have been working for sanity for years will chime in as well.
The time is now to get involved. Don’t just join an email list to flood your inbox even more. It is time to get active. Learn from experts on what we face with the upcoming ballot initiatives, vet your local candidates and get on board to help those you deem worthy of your vote. We have 6 weeks left before one of the most important elections of our lifetime. No matter what happens in November we have our work cut out for us. Our country cannot afford for us to quietly go on about our lives without paying attention to politics. Because guess what? You may not pay attention to politics, but politics will pay attention to you.
If you want more information check out Maryland Conservative Action Network Inc. our calendar is available to conservative groups across the state to post meetings and rallies. We plan on hosting our next conference in January and we need your help to turn the state purple. Our children need you to pay attention to what happens in the schools. Our elected officials (of both parties) need you to watch them like a hawk because when you look away they will run wild with your tax money.
“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.” Thomas Paine
Don’t be a sunshine patriot! Roll up your sleeves and get in the battle because YOU are needed. If you have been waiting for someone to ask for your help. I am doing so now. The choice is yours, will you help us?
