The covert assault on liberty is already in full swing this campaign season.
It seems like a while ago now that we had begun to see an enlightened dialog of real issues take place on the national stage, only to have those conversations fade away as the circus of presidential politics and the media profiteers hijack the debate once again.
To be frank, I’ve noticed a great deal of shock and apathy amongst good, honest, liberty folks all over the place, not just here in Iowa.
It’s certainly to be expected, but that’s all the more reason why we need to get back up after being knocked down, brush ourselves off and activate the grassroots power of Liberty Iowa to bring sanity back to the political dialog in Iowa.
To accomplish this goal, Liberty Iowa is excited to announce our “Fall Into Freedom” campaign.
The Fall Into Freedom campaign will take place throughout the month of October with Liberty Iowa sponsored grassroots events happening every week in every part of the state.
The purpose of the Fall Into Freedom campaign is to put talk to action.
As supporters of individual and economic liberty, Liberty Iowa preaches limited government only to have big government apologists then accuse us of not caring about less fortunate people in our community.
That’s why Liberty Iowa is going to Lead Through Action by demonstrating that “We The People” can take responsibility for helping out our fellow man without centralized planning of the government, through community volunteering and action coordinated around the state.
This campaign will also make a strong statement about what it really means to be a public servant.
Career politicians care more about advancing their own careers then they really are about their constituents. We will remind them what public service is all about. Its about taking on a burden, giving back to the community voluntarily, not through government coercion.
So here are a few details:
Oct 1 – Oct 7: Liberty Iowa members from all over the state will be participating in Operation Public Park Cleanup. In this program, volunteers will adopt parks across the state and voluntarily pick up trash and engage with people you meet to tell them about Liberty Iowa.
Oct 8 – 14: Liberty Iowa members will participate in our clothing drive for homeless and disabled veterans. We will announce official drop off points across the state very soon.
Oct 15 – 21: Liberty Iowa members will participate in a state wide food drive for the local food banks across Iowa.
Oct 22 – 29: Liberty Iowa members will host blood drives in Des Moines and Iowa City. Official dates yet to be announced.
Oct 30: Liberty Iowa will be hosting an end of campaign Barnyard Bash Fundraiser in Pleasant Hill at Kim Pearson’s home. This event will be for Liberty Iowa dues paying members only and will be the launch point for further grassroots activity over the coming months. There will be many special guests and speakers. You will NOT want to miss this.
So there you have it. October is our month to break out of the rut the liberty movement has been in over the last several months. I need every member of Liberty Iowa to give at least one hour of time in October to the Fall Into Freedom effort, but if you can’t physically be there to support us, please consider contributing $100, $50, or $25 to Liberty Iowa today.
This campaign will determine if we can shake our frustration with the system and work towards real reform. That’s why its so vital you and I get out in the community and preach the good news of liberty to as many Iowans as possible.
So here’s what I need from you:
- Find at least one weekend in October where you can join other Liberty Iowa activists to go out into the community. You can sign up for that here.
- Bring at least one friend or family member to join you at one of our volunteer events.
- Become a dues paying member of Liberty Iowa. Annual memberships start at $25/year. With your annual membership dues paid, you will get free access to special Liberty Iowa events, such as the upcoming Barnyard Bash October 30th at 7pm.
The potential success or failure of the Liberty movement is in your hands. We are an army of individuals. Your participation is critical to our success.
So please sign up for Liberty Iowa’s Fall Into Freedom campaign today, and if you can, become a dues paying member to attend our end of campaign Barnyard Bash! There will be many great speakers and a few surprise guests. Stay tuned for more details.
