Jan. 16th - Consent of the Governed Rally

The third annual Consent of the Governed Rally will take place at the Missouri State Capitol Rotunda on Wed. Jan. 16th from 10:00 to 1:00. One of the most important aspects of this year's rally will be to insist that Missouri legislators act proactively to safeguard our right to keep and bear arms. Legislators will also be reminded that they have a duty to evaluate the constitutionality of the bills they submit and vote on.  Key legislation will be featured in short 3 minute presentations by sponsoring legislators.  The keynote speaker will be the always entertaining historian, professor and best-selling author, Thomas (Tom) Woods, whose new on-line Liberty Classroom is garnering enthusiasts nationwide and whose New York Time's best-seller speaks to the necessity for economic freedom in order to have a successful and prosperous economy. 

All rally attendees will be provided with the room numbers of their representative and senator and encouraged to visit their offices to speak briefly with them or at least to drop off the cards provided to show that they were there participating in the rally. This kind of involvement does make a difference to our Missouri legislators who need to feel our support as they face the challenge of interposing on our behalf in appropriate ways against Federal intrusions upon our God-given rights.  Don't sit back and complain, come out and join your voice with others who are willing to pay their dues in exercising "eternal vigilance", the "price of liberty".  If you can't make the drive to Jefferson City that day, at least consider writing or calling your legislators to tell them you are there in spirit.  Updates, information on other upcoming activities, and newsletter signups may be found at after Jan. 9.

The implications of our huge and ever-growing national debt,  the expansion of the TSA and warrant-less government surveillance,  "ObamaCare",  activist judges, social security insolvency, the Federal Reserve's creation of hundreds of billions of dollars out of thin air, and renewed threats against our natural rights of self-defense as expressed in our 2nd amendment. If so, come out and join with other like minded individuals from all across Missouri – and exercise your right to say 'Enough is enough!'
