“Somebody ought to do something!”
“I’m tired of shouting at my TV but what am I to do? Write a letter? Send an email? A fax? What for? “They” don’t care about us and they’re not listening!”
“What are we supposed to do?”
Sound familiar? Well, Patriots, there’s not one thing you can do—there are actually three options to choose from—as a 21st century Patriot you can exercise one, two or all three at the same time!
Imagine, if you will, a trident—a long three pronged spear commonly associated with the classical god of the sea—Neptune (or Poseidon). The first prong is “educate,” the middle—“advocate,” the third—“participate.” The trident is the Patriots’ best weapon in the fight to save our republic from those hell bent on shredding the Constitution and replacing it with a “living” document. Here’s how.
Educate—First, start with educating yourself. Have you read the Declaration of Independence? The Constitution? How about the Bill of Rights? Remember them from civics class? Oh, that’s right; civics class has long since vanished from the majority of our schools. Only old guys like me remember learning about local, state and federal government and how they are supposed to work together; laws—and how they are to be created, argued and passed and how those laws are supposed to be interpreted, enforced and by whom.
