"The silent majority" has led to disastrous results for our country. It has been an excuse to not get involved. To remain ignorant and not engaged. To sit back, throw up arms and say, “all I can do is vote”. Some of us do not even do that. We convince ourselves that we have "good excuses” such as avoiding conflict and confrontation, or that it is not worth offending or hurting feelings. In reality "they" use our virtues against us. Unfortunately, this “silence” has led to many individuals in our community not feeling safe to express their beliefs and opinions because they fear being bullied, censored, boycotted, shamed, terminated and even physically harmed. Worse are the virtue signalers who are only concerned about their superficial moral and social standing, falling over each other trying to be more politically correct than the other. Even the innocent act of putting a campaign sign in the yard or a student disagreeing with a teacher’s political bias is feared. These reasons, fears and threats are real; however, silence means acceptance and only exacerbates the disease. Silence is the reason we continue to head down a path many of us do not want to go. Hope is not a strategy. At some point we need to make a stand and start acting like the majority we are! This does NOT mean posting hate speech on social media or any forms of violence. It means getting educated and showing up.
We believe we are at a tipping point for our country and there needs to be a counter movement to the very motivated, organized, and well-funded efforts of radical ideologies. They use our virtues against us to get control of our institutions, communities and lives. While we have been polite and silent, they have been loud and organized. Many feel isolated, weak, and powerless against this loud minority. However, just a few hundred well-organized Minutemen can change the world just like they did a couple hundred years ago. Minutemen made a commitment to each other that on a moment’s notice they would drop what they were doing to mobilize and rapidly deploy to face immediate threats. In no way do we condone violence; however, we are in a battle with forces that want to impact our freedoms, rights, and pursuit of happiness. Are you ready to jump off the couch and attend a school board meeting or stand in front of a business that is being threatened because of their political beliefs? Then read on and let us know if you would like to join this group of friends.
With faith and knowledge we will engage at the county level by taking peaceful but bold action to protect our constitutional rights and freedoms.
If we want our country to be based on “In God We Trust” we need to put our faith in God and pray for his help. Faith + Knowledge = Wisdom.
Matthew 5:44 "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Matthew 19:26 “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Bottom line - When GOD wins we ALL win.
A mission critical aspect of our group is that we commit to each other that we will respond when called. We will, to the best of our ability and availability, utilize our gifts and passion to help achieve our mission and goals. This group is NOT about hoping things improve or expecting someone else to solve the problem. We are about taking action. It means WE SHOW UP.
Too many in our community do not feel safe expressing their conservative values and beliefs. They fear being bullied, censored, boycotted, shamed, terminated and even physically harmed. As a family of Patriots we commit to having each others back, giving others the courage to speak freely and confidently.
We will map out the political landscape of our county so that we have a clear understanding of who and what influences and controls the polices and laws that impact our lives. Once mapped, we will organize by entity (e.g. school board, municipality) to monitor activity and influence legislation and policy.
Silent resistance did not work and will never work. We need to engage by educating ourselves with the laws and mechanics of our county. Knowledge is a powerful weapon and will magnify the impact of our efforts. We will get involved by running for elected positions, joining community organizations and voicing or concerns when needed.
This group was formed March 2021 and we have no idea what this group will become or where we will end up. All we know is that there are a lot of people who want to do something. We will figure it out together by leveraging the skills, experience, and passions of Patriots who love our local communities and country.
