QUOTES FOR THE MONTH OF JULY
Our "Gun Permit" was issued on Dec. 17th 1791, Do NOT be afraid to put it to use !!!
Congress needs to do what "WE" hired them to do. Be the proper check and balance to the executive branch of government and challenge the president when he is operating way outside of the parameters of his office.
"As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions." --James Madison, National Gazette Essay, 1792
PATRIOT CONNECTORS MEETING JULY 14th
Pennsylvania State Director for American’s For Prosperity, (AFP), Beth Ann Mumford will be the guest speaker at the July Fourteenth meeting of the Patriot Connectors. The group meets at the Wallenpaupack High School Library at 6:30 for a Social Time and 7 pm for the meeting with an Open Forum following. There are free materials and books available and petitions to sign on current political issues. The meeting is free and open to everyone.
Beth Anne Mumford breathes in tax hikes and exhales spending cuts. She has spent her career learning how to educate the public, organize grassroots armies, and apply relentless grassroots pressure on wayward lawmakers. She brings her extensive experience to Americans for Prosperity’s growing team in Pennsylvania, where she has no hesitation to speaking economic freedom truth to self-serving power, Republican, Democratic, or otherwise. Stopping cronyism and big government oppression has been her driving ambition from a young age. After earning a degree in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia, she moved to Washington, DC, where she learned a lot about politics and policy, and spent some time on Capitol Hill as congressional staff. Although she wanted to become a US Senator at the age of eight, she started to discover that it might be more fun to hold politicians accountable than to be one herself. As most people know, there’s not enough time in the day to stop tax hikes, corporate welfare, big government healthcare takeovers, and other bad policies. She’s usually up by 5:30 a.m. to begin her day as a mom to three spirited children, who still think she should run for president. The family lives in Harrisburg where Beth Ann is also busy being the AFP State Director.
Quoted saying about the AFP, “We protect the American Dream by fighting each day for lower taxes, less government regulation and economic prosperity for all. In Pennsylvania, we have over 205,000 activists working to preserve our free-market economy and hold government accountable. We hold weekly phone-banks, neighborhood walks and have a variety of opportunities open for volunteers to help in our efforts to fight the policies in Harrisburg and Washington, DC that limit the opportunities and the well-being of all Pennsylvanians. We exist to recruit, educate and mobilize citizens in support of the policies and goals of a free-society at the local, state and federal level helping every American live their dream—especially the least fortunate.”

No. 2 Concerning Dangers From Foreign Force and Influence
by John Jay
When the people of America reflect they are now called upon to decide a question, which in its consequences must prove one of the most important that ever engaged their attention, the propriety of their taking a very comprehensive, as well as a very serious, view of it will be evident.
Nothing is more certain than the indispensable necessity of government; and it is equally undeniable that whenever and however it is instituted, the people must cede to it some of their natural rights, in order to vest it with requisite powers.
It is well worthy of consideration therefore, whether it would conduce more to the interest of the people of America that they should, to all general purposes, be one nation, under one federal government, than that they should divide themselves into separate confederacies and give to the head of each the same kind of powers which they are advised to place in one national government.
It has often given me pleasure to observe that independent America was not composed of detached and distant territories, but that one connected, fertile, wide-spreading country was the portion of our western sons of liberty. Providence has in particular manner blessed it with a variety of soils and productions and watered it with innumerable streams for the delight and accommodation of its inhabitants. A succession of navigable waters forms a kind of chain round its borders, as if to bind it together: while the most noble rivers in the world running at convenient distances, present them with high ways for the easy communication of friendly aids and the mutual transportation and exchange of their various commodities.
