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 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. Together is the only way to turn back the tide.
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 attorney general even says "There are other forms of due process than judicial process." We guess that's what he calls locking up prisoners without lawyers' representation.
We can no longer just HOPE things get better. 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.
"Our government was the first that was created after the advent of printing and mass availability of books, and thus the availability of ideas."
What does each amendment have to do with YOU? Are these Constitutional guarantees obsolete -- or more vital than ever? Our civics lesson comes courtesy of 18-year-old senior Alex Ellis, who is going to open your mind to a deeper understanding of this greatest gift and also raise your hope for our future in the hands of these youth.
The 2nd Amendment is in a fragile place. Its protection must be through the reasoned words and action of those who value the right to protect one's self and the sacred process of the Bill of Rights.
May we tell tales of heroic government hackers and invasive officers right up there alongside Crispus Attucks and Patrick Henry through all generations.

We recently sent our L9 letter to Senator Hatch admonishing him to vote to restrain the NSA. He kindly wrote back. But surely he was joking. Surely there was no way something so contradictory and so contrary to the Constitution went out in seriousness.
