Look at what has happened while we were trusting the political system to work for us, it has put our country into a unreal level of debt. They shipped our nation's wealth overseas and bailed out the very financial institutions that has put this nation in this financial disaster. Let us all join together and make the USA the nation, once again, what we know it should be. ”

“ A+. Educating ourselves and reaffirming our rights from God. Others need to follow and help us keep our freedoms. There is so much that is so wrong on so many levels that have been inflicted by a few. Being with like-minded people helps me sleep at night knowing that I am not alone. We must continue to educate ourselves and prepare for a meeting with enemies of our Constitution...all done peacefully. ”

“ I submit a quote, as to why others should join this group. "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not for your counsel nor your arms.

This Meetup group looks like it is serious about the situation, not just a social club. ”

I thought the speakers were great and informative. There was anger and laughter, and rightly so. I'm looking forward to our forthcoming meetings and activities. I know there are others sitting at home, (like I was), wondering what they can do to make a difference. Thanks, Glenn Beck! We need to contact these people and get them involved, because sitting at home doing nothing doesn't get anyone anywhere. ”
