We the People Rising celebrated our conservative activist efforts against rogue city councils, uninformed and corrupt politicians, and our frequent appearances on local and national media.
We are making a difference, because that's what this country was founded on. The Constitution begins with "We the People" and ends with "to the people" (from the oft overlooked Tenth Amendment of the Bill of Rights)
Let us never forget the stirring, inspiring words of Samuel Adams:
"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."
The American Revolution broke out when farmers with pitchforks fired the first shots against the rogue British Empire.
Today, we are taking on local and state leaders, and holding federal officials accountable.
We want the government to protect our rights:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men. . ."
The Declaration of Independence laid out a basic precept, and fundamental principle of government: to protect our rights.
And right now, the government is doling out taxpayer money to layabouts and illegal aliens instead of protecting our rights.
The governments in our midst should be securing our borders. There is no freedom without security, and there is no peace without justice.
At this time, lawmakers are more intent on creating more privileges for illegals rather than promoting the general welfare of legal residents in this country. One city council, in Huntington Park, has appointed two illegal aliens to city commissions instead of respecting the honor and skills of thousands of legal residents in the city.
Throughout the state of California, illegal aliens - individuals who have not and have no interest in attaining citizenship - are receiving opportunities and entitlements while American citizens are left behind.
This is wrong. This is elitist nonsense which diminishes national identity, state sovreignty and individual liberty. And We the People are rising, not taking any more this folly.
As I had said at the August 17th, 2015 Huntington Park City Council meeting:
We the People implies 'We the Citizens', not 'We the Illegal Aliens'.
We the People rising have the corrupt and rogue councilmembers on the run. State senators and assemblymen are paying attention. Congressional representatives seek our support or run when we show up. Conservative candidates seeking to put "We the People" back in charge have welcomed our cause.
We the People Rising celebrated a successful 2015, and look forward to more victories next year!
Please, join our cause!
