AFP TO JOIN FREEDOM DRIVE, URGES PARTICIPATION

Boulder, CO - The America First Party urges all of its members to participate in the Freedom Drive, a caravan and series of rallies, starting Veteran's Day weekend in Salt Lake City, and culminating at the east end of the Washington Mall near the US Capital on November 14. The event is sponsored by the We the People Congress, and America First Party National Chairman Dan Charles will be addressing the Washington, DC rally.

Mr. Charles stated, "It is said that the world is run by those who show up. This Veterans Day we are reminded that many of our fellow Americans made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our nation and her Constitution. We hope to pay tribute to them by taking positive and proactive steps to preserve and protect the values for which they fought, and in some cases died. We encourage all Americans to participate in this effort to petition our federal government for redress of grievances, in the best tradition of grassroots activism."

Mr. Charles continued, "While the We the People Congress seeks to change the behavior of our political class, and the America First Party takes a different approach by seeking to replace the current political class with principles citizens, both organizations are working to solve the same problems facing our republic. If the American people come together to solve the problems facing us, we can accomplish anything."

The We the People Congress is presenting petitions of grievance regarding four wrongs recognized by the Party. The Income Tax, the War Powers Clauses, the Patriot Act, and the Federal Reserve are all creations of an out-of-control federal government.

Mr. Charles added, "The American people have been encumbered by a new kind of slavery imposed by their own elected officials. With few avenues available for redress, the American public has accepted the incremental infringement on the liberties granted by our Creator. It is now time that we preserve the freedoms preserved by the blood of patriots who died to protect and defend those rights central to our Constitution."

Bob Schulz, chairman of We the People Congress, spent months amassing petitions, which list the major grievances addressed by the organization. These appeals were gathered from concerned citizens and will be presented to Congress on November 14.

In response to the news of AFP participation, Mr. Schulz stated: "The great American experiment, with its Constitution, is hanging by a single thread and the People are at fault--we let it happen. We have allowed the eye of citizen vigilance to be all but closed. We have allowed our servant government to seize power and control of our House. They no longer show respect for the People or their Rule Book. Please help keep the flame of Liberty burning. The Constitution cannot defend itself. Do not let the great American experiment wither and die on the vine. A moment full of historical potential draws near. Let us manifest the future we envision. Together, let us restore the Constitution. Let's stay the course."
