The Importance of the Freedom Caravan

Saturday, April 25, 2020

 

Dear Lynn,

I have seen our freedoms disappear over the years. The inception of our country was spurned on by our founding father’s revolts against King George’s policies, and they fought relentlessly for the rights and freedoms we now possess in our constitution. This month, we were witness to another tyrannical government in the form of our governor and his administration.

I believe we as citizens of this great nation have a responsibility to stand against the tyranny designed to destroy our state and country. This notion is shared with hundreds of patriots I spoke with on Wednesday, at the rally point near the Capitol in Richmond. These patriots came from all over Virginia to voice that the “free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,” therefore meaning we must open Virginia for business as soon as possible. If we are to survive as a state and nation, we must take a stand against our governor to protect the constitutional values that are under fire.

To not attend the rally on Wednesday out of fear of COVID-19 or government reprisal was not an option. It was an opportunity to peacefully object to the government overreach that is plaguing Virginia today. My hope is that our governor and his administration will view the assembly on Wednesday as leaders of conservative groups that represent thousands of votes this November, and as a peaceful message to reopen the state so that we, as a state and nation, can become economically viable again.

Lynn, I could not begin to tell you how many people commented on the Thomas Jefferson quote on the little blue truck. Thank you for your support!

“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”- Thomas Jefferson
