After a month, if you love the power Loyal 9 brings, you are then invited to support the work with a $3 a month contribution so this project can continue. Truly grassroots, Loyal 9 does not sell or share member information, accept advertising, grants, or other support beyond the small monthly member support.
“Three letters in four minutes. For those who want to do more, this is a must.” Cal B, Castle Rock, CO
"I always felt like I needed to participate in some kind uprising in the streets. I didn't expect the feelings that came with mailing a simple letter." Ryan W, Irvine, CA
"What a worthy, needed effort. I'm off to share it with others. God bless you. God bless this service. God bless America." Susan M, Springville, UT
In 1765, nine men met together in a Boston tavern, gathering to voice their concern of growing encroachments by their government. These were not big names or the powerful. This group, the original Loyal Nine, included a distiller, a printer, a brass worker, a ship captain. What these people realized is that preserving their liberty took more than complaining around the bar; it took action.
At that time, this stepping forth was a risk to themselves, their livelihoods, even their families. It seems, though, that the risk of not acting must have been even greater. Within a year, their agitations and efforts began to spread, and The Loyal Nine flourished and spread, taking on its new name, famous in history, The Sons of Liberty. Eleven years later, 1776, the fruits of their labor changed the world.
Named after the original Loyal Nine of Pre-Revolutionary history, this new community follows the example of the past to stand up and stand together as those who love our country and think it IS exceptional because of documents forged in the fires of sacrifice. Started by five friends who wondered "What can we DO?," Loyal 9 has spread to forty-five states. Together is the only way to turn back the tide.
We can no longer just HOPE things get better. James Madison predicted, "If our nation is ever taken over, it will be taken over from within." We are afraid this statement is becoming prophetic. Our government eavesdrops on its citizens, threatens gun ownership, has passed a bill to make protesting around federal officials a FELONY, and has mandated "event trackers" in all new cars -- just to name a few Constitutional encroachments of the last two years. Our recent attorney general even said, "There are other forms of due process than judicial process." We guess that's what he calls locking up prisoners without lawyers' representation.
Thomas Paine said that “those who expect to reap the blessings of liberty must undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” But we, too often, don’t know what to do, don’t even know about their hidden acts, or we just don’t find the time. The founding fathers risked their lives, livelihoods, and families to establish our freedoms. Now it is up to all of us to protect this gift.
Have we had our grand breakthrough for liberty? The House just passed the "USA Freedom Act" in a landslide, 338-88. Don't be fooled. It's a sham. Coming up is the real opportunity for true reform: let the Constitution-crushing "Patriot Act Section 215" expire in one week.
A warning against the manipulations of partisan politics, the dangers of foreign entanglements, a plea to never allow a consolidation of power or violation of the "Bill of Rights no matter how good the cause may be presented -- it's all here from over two hundred hears ago.
Take a failed issue (CISPA's internet control). Give it a righteous new name ("Net Neutrality"). Get people begging for government salvation. Ram the details through in secrecy. Paranoid indeed.
This has been the most tragic week in the congress in the years we have been watching its workings.
