“Within a complex web of ideologies, most of today’s armed radicals are linked by self-described Patriot beliefs, which emphasize resistance to tyranny by force of arms and reject the idea that elections can fix what ails the country. Among the most common convictions is that the Second Amendment—the right to keep and bear arms—is the Constitution’s cornerstone, because only a well-armed populace can enforce its rights. Any form of gun regulation, therefore, is a sure sign of intent to crush other freedoms. The federal government is often said in militia circles to have made wholesale seizures of power, at times by subterfuge. A leading grievance holds that the 16th Amendment, which authorizes the federal income tax, was ratified through fraud.” from Time Mag.
On Sunday, October 24, 2010, nine days before the elections, Americans are being called to step into the streets to walk a mile together in a show of support for the nation’s founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for the United States of America. The national civic action will take place from 1-2pm in every time zone. Organizers are hoping to see millions of patriots from cities and towns across America – of all age groups – participate in the Liberty Walk.
The purpose is to show how many supporters of the Constitution there are; to inspire the People to come together at the local level out of love for America, her Constitution and Freedom; and to encourage personal responsibility for ensuring that constitutional obedience, honor, honesty and integrity are returned to government at every level.
The Liberty Walk is a non-political event. Pro-Constitution candidates and politicians are invited to attend and walk humbly with the People. For that one hour, there will be no political speeches or campaigning, only reflection on the history, meaning, effect and significance of our Charters of Freedom. Participants will step off together at 1pm and end at a gathering place, where a special ceremony will be given to honor Country and Constitution.
“There are millions of Americans who yearn for constitutional governance, carried out in decency and good order,” said Bob Schulz, a leading activist in defense of the Constitution.
“This is a special time to see how many of us there really are. Nine days before the mid-term election, the Liberty Walk is a nationwide event to demonstrate our common cause. We hope all will join in the Walk, as we remember the Patriots of Old, rejoice in the legacy of our Country, and walk side-by-side with our neighbors in defense of Liberty and the profound principles of Freedom that our Constitution guarantees. The Constitution is hanging by a thread and is not going to be defended unless a critical mass of the People begin to stand in its defense. Every violation of the Constitution, which has become common place, is having a devastating effect on the nation, our economy, our families, businesses and our global reputation,” he concluded. “Only the People can step up and see that it is obeyed.”
