“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” – Thomas Paine.
There is a new website in Florida with the mission to defend the Sunshine state from the onslaught of Washington, D.C. DefendFlorida.org in an email to its members states:
WHY DO WE NEED TO DEFEND FLORIDA?
Florida and its great citizens, as well as the 49 other states in our union, are facing immediate dangers from the unconstitutional Federal Government overreach through national mandates and threats to state’s sovereign rights under the constitution. Floridians lack the necessary understanding of their constitutional rights under the Florida state and US constitutions. It is incumbent upon We the People to gain this critical knowledge if we are to hold our representatives accountable. Many of our representatives have failed to represent OUR interests properly. Those who fail to do their job should be removed and replaced with representatives who will accurately represent our interests. We do not advocate violence. We want to use all our constitutional rights to work within the law to effect change and defend Florida.
WHO ARE WE?
DEFEND FLORIDA is a state-wide, citizen-driven movement designed to protect Florida and Floridians from Federal government overreach.
DEFEND FLORIDA has created a powerful approach to mitigate Washington’s damage to our businesses, houses of worship and our basic civil rights. Working with Representatives in our State House and Senate, we are crafting a legislative “firewall” to interpose and protect Florida.
DEFEND FLORIDA is educating the citizenry on the United States Constitution and the Florida State Constitution in addition to giving them the tools necessary to exercise their constitutional rights.
DEFEND FLORIDA is recruiting and training citizens to become versed in local elected bodies at the county and city levels to provide citizen oversight for those bodies.
DEFEND FLORIDA is recruiting, training and supporting candidates to run for state and local offices who will defend the freedoms and rights of We the People.
