Our Founding Fathers believed that the evils of an overgrown government endangers us as a free society.
Regardless of 200 or so years that the Constitution was created in its timeless wisdom, we still hold these truths to, now more than ever, to fight.
The great men and women whose industry, innovation and creativity that built the privilege of a free trade system and open market is being threatened.
The evils of Socialism are rearing their foul head and spreading like wildfire in our country.
As the more the state plans with the ideas of regulating the state of commerce and pure economic ideals, it grinds away our freedom to choose and prosper.
Yet even this path of danger to lose our true heritage, we must get back to our roots.
The concept of more power to the states rights is the tool by which local communities can choose for themselves and flourish.
We will fight back.
