Father’s Day

I hope all the guys out there had a good Father’s day.  Me, I spent about 2 ½ hours of it- in the heat of the late morning- doing a literature drop to promote the Dallas Tea Party’s July 4th event at South Fork Ranch.  Why would I do that on a day that- as a Dad- I had every right to be lazy?  Because I spent a good part of the previous two days following the violence in Iran.  I did it because of Neda, the beautiful young woman whose horrible death on the streets of Tehran has exploded across the internet.

You see, in this country, it doesn’t take a great deal of bravery to oppose government policy.  And the current government policy- as we all know- will lead to national bankruptcy.  We have the ability to affect change in this nation that is the envy of much of the world, without getting murdered on the streets or having goons kick in our doors and make us disappear.

And July 4th is the day we celebrate that right, among others; those rights bought in blood over the centuries.  That right to oppose- and its importance- has been clarified to me over the past few days.  And I will not waste it.  Will you?

If not, meet us at South Fork July 4th.  And do everything you can to bring every like-minded neighbor or family member.  To show our mass opposition to current policies that will cripple this nation, to honor the people who gave us this right, and to honor Neda and others lost in the fight for similar rights elsewhere.
