In swing states, Tea party and private family groups, paid for billboards to be placed along interstates which stated, “Voter Fraud is a Felony” followed with the possible criminal/financial penalty. The billboards stated nothing but the truth regarding this crime.
Various left wing and elected Democratic took exception to the signs labeling them racist. Clear Channel at first refused to pull the signs, yet under increasing pressure they reached an agreement with the groups which paid for the billboards to take the signs down. In addition, Clear Channel agreed to place 10 billboards up, free of charge, for the protesting groups which state “Voting is a Right. Not A Crime.”
Anyone who understands the application of rights in this country, recognize that rights only come from God. Voting is NOT a right but a privilege. A legal alien is afforded all rights which we embrace as citizens such as free speech and the right to unreasonable search and seizures, yet they are not allowed to vote as non-citizens, that are reserved as a privilege to citizens who meet specific requirements.
Stating that “Voter Fraud is a Felon,” is simply stating the truth contrary to what the left wants to claim. Just as a billboard which might say “Stealing is a Felony” or “Murder is a Felony”, speaks the truth regarding our laws. We are a nation of laws.
We encourage Patriots to speak out against this blatant attempt to silence, by creating their own home billboard. We know Patriots can create signs. Place them in your front yard or in public areas where you see campaign signs, get them out and leave them in place till November 7th.
In coordination with Freedom Works, you can be a part of encouraging like-minded freedom lovers to vote on November 6th.
Here’s how it works:
Go the US Post Office and purchase 20 prepaid postage postcards for $7.40 or whatever number you can afford. A prepaid card cost 37 cents each. You then decide whether you want to send the cards out locally or to one of the battleground states.
Contact NIPats and we will get you the names and addresses for the number of postcards you purchased. We will also provide sample statements for the postcards.
The postcards you send are to be handwritten. It is important you individually touch the citizens that receive the postcard.
Next, sit down while watching TV or the kids and write out 10 cards one night and place them in the mail. Over the course of the next couple of weeks you have written out the cards, encouraging your fellow citizens to vote and have reminded them how important this election is to our nation.
The addresses you will receive will be targeted to specific voters. You will be writing on specific issues and asking them to vote for liberty.
Get your cards and contact us nipatriots at gmail.com. In the subject line put ‘postcards’.
You can make a difference!
Get involved in a campaign for a candidate who embraces core American values.
If you know a candidate whose philosophy aligns with these values, get involved in the campaign.
Volunteer to walk door-to-door for a candidate. Walking door-to-door is a powerful and effective way to connect with other citizens. When you walk door-to-door the issues become real and personal. Often walking is done in groups, so even if you have never walked for a candidate you will have someone with you.
Campaigns also look for individuals to make phone bank calls. You will be asked to make calls from specific lists, and will be given a brief script, which will probably end with you asking the caller to vote for the person you are calling for.
The first time people either walk door-to-door or phone bank it may feel odd, maybe even a bit uncomfortable, but in a short amount of time you will be surprised how easy it becomes.
Do not be discouraged if you do not feel comfortable walking door-to-door or in making calls, all campaigns have something you can do to make a difference and help the candidate in winning the election.
Today starts a grassroots campaign to highlight the lack of leadership in Washington.
Inspired by Clint Eastwood’s empty chair dialogue, grassroots Patriots from around the country are placing empty chairs in their yards. This action is designed to create a visual impact indicating Patriots frustration in addressing the key issues which threaten the foundation of our Republic.
Be creative and highlight what you believe are the important issues of the day. Examples;

Northern Indiana Patriots (NIPats) is looking for volunteers to assist with website content. Specifically NIPats is looking for Patriots who will help gather important news items of the day and forward them to us for consideration on the website.
If interested in making a difference or you have questions regarding an expanded roll in safeguarding our Republic email us through the “Contact” bar at the bottom of the page.
As always we encourage you to forward this newsletter to friends and family who may subscribe to the following:
Do they believe in entrepreneurship and a free market?
Do they believe that they should not spend money they simply do not have?
Do they believe that limiting the role of the federal government is a way to bring power back to the people?
Often times we hear the statement, “this is the most important election of our life time.” You have an opportunity to determine whether we remain a sovereign nation, blessed with unprecedented freedoms guaranteed through our humanity or drift off into a quasi-socialist nation where our freedom depends on unelected bureaucrats in Washington,D.C.
What value do you place on your freedom? We are reminded of Thomas Paine from December 23, 1776:
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. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.
At the beginning of the Revolutionary war, only 10% of the population were active in the battle for Independence. What value have you for freedom? Are you willing to donate time to guarantee that your sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, have the same or greater freedom which you live under? The country is headed toward an abyss which threatens our very way of life and the things we hold dear. What value have you for freedom?
Borrowed from the success of Tea Party groups across the nation, NIPats will be hosting Instant Tea Rallies throughout the area.
Instant Tea Rallies will be structured as educational outreach events to inform our neighbors of issues the mainstream media ignore. Participants will be encouraged to bring American flags and signs which relate to specific topics. The rallies will also be an opportunity for Patriots to meet each other and to know they are not alone in standing for our Constitutional values of limited government, fiscal responsibility and a free market system.
NIPats is asking Patriots for ideas of where to hold these rallies. Event permits are not required for Instant Tea Rallies.
Do you know of a busy street, somewhere that will has high visibility and enough room for Patriots to express their first amendment rights? A typical Instant Tea Rally would last about a two hours.
If you know of a possible site in your city, please contact us NIPatriots at gmail.com, we look forward to hearing from you and hope to make this a bi-monthly event, Put those thinking caps on Patriots, lets get this rolling!
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
One of the cornerstones of our republic are elections were only eligible voters cast ballots which determine their representation. In 2008, the Lake County Board of Elections found the first 2,100 of 5,000 submitted new voter registration forms from the group ACORN “fraudulent.”
The non-partisan organization, True the Vote, is a citizen-led effort to restore truth, faith, and integrity to our elections.
From True the Vote: Our government was built upon the belief that election results represent the true will of the people and our election processes were always intended to be supported by citizen volunteers. We are helping stop corruption where it can start – at the polls.
To volunteer towards this campaign please sign-up at True the Vote.
Also of interest at the True the Vote web site is the law suit filed by Judicial Watch and True the Vote against the state of Indiana elections officials.
We should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections.
John Adams, Inaugural Address, March 4, 1797
