Freedom Action Conference - August 12-14, Valley Forge, PA
By Alan Caruba
I don't usually promote specific events, but the Freedom Action Conference that will convene at Valley Forge, PA, August 12-14, at the Dolce Hotel, is one you should consider attending if, like Howard Beale in the movie, "Network", you're mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore.
It will feature three days of speakers who will train attendees and provide hands-on knowledge about how to end federal and UN attacks on individual freedoms, states rights, local loss of control, Second Amendment rights, and other issues that affect you and everyone else right where you live.
In 1777, George Washington’s tired and starving troops, having experienced initial defeat at the hands of the most powerful army of its times, retreated to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania to regroup, to train, and to take up the struggle to establish independence. By 1781, they were victorious at Yorktown, Virginia.
Today, Americans are under siege again, but this time from a federal government seeking to overturn the protections of the Constitution and to establish control over every aspect of our lives via legislation that affects our health, our property, our access to energy, and via international treaties that over-ride the Constitution.
The American Policy Center, a grassroots, activist organization led by Tom DeWeese, along with 22 co-sponsoring organizations, will convene a three-day conference where American liberty began its struggle, where patriots suffered and regrouped to establish the world’s beacon of liberty at Valley Force, Pennsylvania. You will be able to join other concerned Americans.
A website, freedomactionconference.com will facilitate registration. “In the same fashion as the spontaneous creation of the Tea Party movement,” says Tom DeWeese,the founder of the American Policy Center, “we are expecting a large turnout of people who want to learn about the threats to their freedoms and to learn what they can do at the grassroots level to fight them.”
The Conference will feature an extensive lineup of speakers on a wide range of topics that include the Constitution, states rights, Second Amendment rights, illegal immigration, the environmental movement, Sustainable Development, the United Nations, property rights, health and education issues, and grassroots activism.
Local action to counter federal intrusions will be a major focus.
The American Policy Center has long been recognized as a leader in the opposition to government intrusion and attacks on Constitutional rights. “It is time to take America back,” says DeWeese, and he's right.
