Open letter to all my Grassroots Friends and Activists,
My strong recommendation to all involved is to be sure that your teaparty effort stays grassroots and nonpartisan. We need to cut government and taxes big time and get back to our constitutional roots. Many would like to co-opt the movement and call it their own, but no one owns us!
I am working with a group of concerned citizens around the country and want to guide you to a couple of tiny little grassroots efforts with huge implications. Please visit Constitutional Liberty Coalition on wordpress and also on facebook to find other state leaders committed to the same goals.
Hat Tip to Kaye Beach (@axxiom) and OK-Safe and their entire team for keeping people alert and informed on this matter. Please visit their websites to stay up to date on this and other important legislation currently facing our states and our nation! Please link up with us on twitter for real time updates on these efforts!
Oklahoma is leading the nation on sovereignty matters (or trying to thanks to great representatives like Charles Key @ckey and great senators like Randy Brogdon @randybrogdon on twitter. You are encouraged to anticipate some of the same types of bills and techniques being used all over the country to eliminate freedom in our land. And we asure you #CLCs will be there too!
Grassroots 101 – Policy on lists and fundraising
Lists should be kept local. Please do not sell or give away. They belong to the ones who work to collect them. Lists are the gold of the movement. If you are a real grassroots organizer, you will take care of the lists collected and keep them in trusted local hands and email about events and campaigns to them, but never, never, never send them to ‘a national effort for a good cause’. Once you have done that you will have forever diluted your local efforts because they quickly migrate without your permission and to efforts and causes that may not even be about what you think they are about.
I am wondering even as we form this group if we can really do what needs to be done and yet having said that I am sure that we are supposed to form this group and see if we can discover our full purpose together. I am confident, that we are ‘called with purpose’. i am not sure that the full purpose is known to me and am more confident in you all than myself. Here is what I know.
